    Another awesome week for GH. Way to go. Love it Show is so great

  • Chris

    Barring a miracle, it stands to reason that NBC probably won’t renew its contract with Days and it’ll be done in September 2013. These numbers above are awful and it’s probably getting harder and harder to make a case that it should stay on the air.
    As for GH, the ratings are up year to year. But are they up enough to convince ABC executives to keep the show on past this September or early next year? That’s the million-dollar question. Most likely, it will all come down to GH’s costs vs. ad revenue, and none of us on the outside know the exact details of GH’s money situation. Stay tuned. I just think that more will go into ABC’s decision than simply the actual raw ratings numbers seen here. Fans should enjoy the show while they can because who knows how much longer it has.

    • Soapfan

      Well aren’t you just a positive person. I think Days will be renewed.

    • We’ve already proven how much smarter we are than you, Chris, so you can stop your anti-soap agenda anytime now

      • Gary

        Wow how classless u are. last time I looked everyone was entitled to their opinion. And sorry but his insights and thoughts were a whole lot more interesting to read than your immature, thoughtless ones. I don’t agree with everything he said, but I will take his attitude over yours any day. Just because someone can have a rational logical thought doesn’t mean they have an anti-soap agenda. Sounds like you are the one with the problem and not Chris. If more of us soap fans were better in touch with rational thought and acting like adults than trying to go on the Internet and prove how stupid we can be — maybe we would all get respect more often. But when we try to cut off opinions, cut off rational thought, then we just prove that those who call us soap opera loons are right.

        Keep posting Chris. I might not agree with all ur points, but you make some good ones.

  • Matt

    GH was thisclose to beating B&B on Tuesday. GH notched a 2.4 an 3.1M while B&B notched a 2.5 and 3.2M.. Almost there!!!!

  • David

    @Chris GH is the #1 show for ABC in the key demos as well now things are not as gloom as you make them. ABC has been very happy with the show and has bragged about the improvement in the numbers. GH only has to gain another 50,000 viewers in the women 18-49 to reach number 1 in that area. Things are looking very bright for GH. As for Days well hope numbers go up some but not looking so good. You have to wonder if Days numbers are hurt by them going head to head with GH in some markets particularly in the midwest and west coast

  • robert

    I think Days will be ending. Those ratings are awful.

  • Mary Lou

    Days ratings may be low but I think NBC will renew. I think we’ll see some good storylines that will pull the ratings up, they’ve been down before and came back. I’m a life long fan and am rooting for them!

  • Fox

    Regarding the Days renewal: As I recall, the current contract was for two years, but the New York Times reported in 2010 that it included an option to extend that for another year. So renewal could be more of an exercise than any kind of negotiation. I’m guessing they’ll get the added year. After all, in order to cancel a show, one needs to have something to replace it with. What does NBC have?

    • Gary

      What does it matter? Right now repeats of Gilligan’s Island would be more entertaining than Days.

  • Nicole Green

    days ratings are horrible

  • OLTL & AMC news, combined with these ratings proves what millions of us have always known: the Soap genre is alive and very well! Congrats to GH on another amazing week!
