where do these numbers come from? I’ve watched days since OLTL and AMC were removed from my life…I’m NOT watching their replacement shows!
No one wants to watch the Princess Gina/John story line AGAIN!!!!!! Seriously Days….get with it!
These ratings are not reflective of the actual viewership of these programs. They are only counting people who watch them during the daytime. Most of all the people I know, male or female watch one or most of these programs. They are not counted as viewers as they watch on DVR, SOAPNET or on the internet. people still watch these shows now as much as ever and the true viewership wont go down until the 18-49 set die off. Unfortunately, these people are no longer being counted as viewers. This is the reason why soap viewership has declined since 2000. As many folks watch them now as ever and I believe that. I have always known of people watching the soaps and it seems like it is still the same. Of those people, I cant think of one that watches them in actual daytime.
The weather was really good here in the Northeast last week. It was unseasonably warm. People went out during the day. Maybe that affected the ratings a bit.
The GH/OLTL hybrid is NOT working. Bringing OLTL characters to interact with the same mob characters is not a way to raise ratings, in fact they are getting worse.
Bring back core legacy GH vets for longer than 5 minutes, with better stories and the ratings will increase again as they did the one and only week since this regime took over, the week Robert Scorpio returned briefly.
GH ratings have been way down before OLTL characters came on board.
Every gay man I know has started watching DAYS to support the new gay story line with WILL, MARLENA, SONNY, and the others. BTW it is really very very GOOD, TOO. So why are the ratings showing falling male viewership that at the most is only 400,000 men. I just cab accept that when I know from web site more gay men are watching the show right now than ever before in history. Is it that NONE OF THEM ARE NIELSEN families LOL??? As the lady said above I also know dozens of women too that are now watching one of the soaps in support of ABC BUTCHERING AMC and OLTL, but you’d never know it from these numbers, so how can you explain it?
CBS & Sony have got to be concerned about Y&R’s decline. It’s the writing folks! MAB is taking this show into the shitter and why don’t they step in? This can’t just fall off the cliff can it?

I think the way to bring the OLTL characters into GH is not just by having them intereact with GH characters, but to get them in their building their own roots based on their own storyline. What if Erika Slezak moves into town, buys out a newspaper there, look at the new characters that could join her, look at how say the Quartermains would react by Todd/Viik building an empire in Port Chuckwagon! Let the lights of such characters shine. Get Erika Slezak in there! She was the backbone of GH!
Look at the year to date numbers. In the year to date ratings he dvr viewing is counted if no commercials are ff and if they are watched before midnight of the day the show was aired. If you FF thru the commercials on DVR or watch after midnight of the same day airing you arent counted at all. I didn’t even mention online viewing. If you count all the people who watch via DVR(and fast forward the commmercials) and watch them after midnight, I am sure you will gain another 2 million viewers for each show.
