    One word: Olympics

  • http://twitter.com/rodrigodwood rodrigosdirtywood

    I’m not surprised at the ratings dip for all the shows. Hello!!! The Olympics are dominating coverage.

    I’m sure the GH bashers are loving this but as long as the ratings remain steady and the storylines on point, I’m not worried. #TEAMCARTINI!!!!!!!

    Why is it lately EVERY Friday is the lowest rated episode of each of the serials? I was so shocked last week to see the Friday episodes ratings the lowest of the week, even DAYS OF OUR LIVES, which aired a 2 week cliff hanger with all but 4 of the CONTRACT, NON-CONTRACT, and UNDER-FIVE actors in it! Can someone shed some light on this? DAYS Thursday episode was one of the highest rated last week, but nothing happened in the story line compared to the Friday show which 100,000’s less people watched. I can’t get a grasp on these ratings, I know they are interpolated from about 1000 families, but how do you explain NBC achieving numbers over 7 million every day of the 10 weekday airings of the Olympics? Did 5 million people tune in that have the set off when DAYS normally airs?

      i don’t get it either..people don’t like watching Days the friday ! lol

      My guess is Friday is often the least watched episode on regular television, because some will take a break, knowing they have two days to watch it online before the next episode airs on Monday on regular TV.
