Topics Discussed
WHAT DO YOU THINK? Comment Below...
  • RobNYC

    Did BB tie YR on Thursday?

  • truth

    The Days of Jennifer, Abigail and Daniel’s lives show is really attracting viewers..Ken Corday..lmaoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, could not be more clueless than old Ken about what audience want..hysterical.

  • Christopher Gomes

    GH has been over 3 million for the last three weeks. That’s good to me?

    • Andrew Hass

      I agree.Even though GH lost viewers it’s the 3rd straight week that’s been over 3 million viewers and i don’t think that’s happened in a long time.Plus they are the only soap that was up in total viewers and in all 3 demos from the same last year.

  • Chris Silva

    If those dailies for B&B are correct, the show should have had 3,938,000 viewers for the week. My guess is, its a typo?

    • RobNYC

      Mine too. I think its coming but not that fast.

      • tracy

        Something smells rotten in the state of denmark and it aint the cheese.

    • JayTN

      B&B seems to be all messed up. The table shows that B&B gained 264,000 viewers from last week, but that cannot be right. It had 3,525,000 viewers last week. If you subtract 264,000 from its viewer total above, you get 3,535,000 viewers instead, a difference of 10,000 viewers. The increase from week-to-week should be 274,000 viewers.

    • JayTN

      That Thursday number for B&B had to be somewhere around 3.82 million viewers instead of 4.52 million. If you add the numbers for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and plug in 3.820 million viewers for Thursday, you get 3.798 million. That is about as close to the 3.799 million viewers listed for B&B as you can get.

  • JayTN

    Regardless of the 18-49 demographic, Y&R accomplished something that it has only done one other time this season…show week-to-week improvement for three consecutive weeks (the only other time was the weeks of Dec. 23 & 30, 2013 and Jan. 6, 2014). Those 4.6 million viewers is also the highest viewer mark for Y&R since the week of March 24 when it had 4.81 million viewers. Y&R is also not far from where it was when the season started: 4.73 million viewers for the week of Sept. 23, 2013.

    • Chris Silva

      Y&R has been decent. Though I am no fan of the Dylan character I do think the story since the shooting has been crafted well. Y&R is an interesting show in that stories as a whole aren’t necessarily good, but a small arc in them might be. The one leading up to the shooting with Avery and her bland cooking show, coupled with Austin’s grievance over some off screen incident was horrible soap opera. But Paul gets shot and suddenly scenes come alive, even though anyone with a 45 IQ could see this plot twist through smoke and fire. I do think Dylan needs to be fleshed out more. Just being the resident nice guy isn’t enough. There are no big consequences to him being Paul and Nikki’s child. And while I think the show is watchable now, in two weeks who knows? Dylan isn’t going to die so this, will he or won’t he carries no suspense at all. But with some good still comes some lackluster soap. I want anyone in GC to find out if there is still a bullet in Austin’s gun and take Summer out stat! Having the airhead ingenue ranting about poor Austin (whom she knew for a hot second), isn’t making the character anymore interesting. If the audience was able to see Summer and Austin fall in love over time and focus was put into them as characters this would probably be playing very differently. I’d like to see if these writers can actually flesh out some interesting characterizations instead of just blowing their wads consistently like pre-mature ejaculators. Their pacing tends to move a lot faster than the fans are caring and that is a problem. Or they don’t show characters for weeks on end making it hard to invest in story. For the time being though, I think the show will be up again next week in total viewers, possibly demos. After all this fades aways and were back to the mundane, we’ll see what the numbers produce then.

        I’m no Dylan either, but I’ve enjoyed Doug Davidson in this story. Once again he was given the opportunity to shine, and I wouldn’t be surprised if this story is his Emmy reel for next year.

      • RobNYC

        I just gave YR a try again after getting fed up with the plots and changing faces. While it does feel like a different show it was enjoyable. Different and not must-see TV but as you said it is decent and watchable and that’s an improvement. For a while it looked like a sinking ship.

  • OPCIGH

    The lower number(granted not by much for GH can be attributed to part of the episode being preempted for an Obama press conference

  • http://unknown.com Bexx

    Guess the Stafford bump is no more?

  • Patrick Ferrando

    Glad to see the continued positive trend for YR in TOTAL viewers. Demos will always be a concern, but if MORE eyes are tuned in overall, I’m happy.
    GH did snuff out a bit the past couple of weeks.
    BB congrats as well!

  • Derrick

    Great for Y&R to continue increasing! What did B&B do Thursday to get that high? I’ve seen B&B, didn’t think it deserved to get that high………….

    • JayTN

      I mentioned this in a previous post, but those Thursday B&B numbers look to be wrong. If they are correct, then B&B’s weekly viewer total is wrong (too low). When one adds up the numbers for Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and plugs in 3.820 million viewers for Thursday, it averages out to 3.798 million viewers…awfully close to the 3.799 million viewer total listed above.

  • Xanna Don’t

    “Numbers are based on live and same day ratings.” Duh! NOBODY watches that way anymore. There’s a reason new cable products like Comcast’s X1 look like Netflix. This article is irrelevant.

    • TV&MovieBuff

      People are watching in many different ways, but advertising rates for the soaps are still set by the 18-49 female demo in live plus 1 day. Until that changes these ratings will not be irrelevant to the producers of the soaps because these ratings tell them how much money they are going to get to work with. That is what they pay Nielsen to measure and that is what Nielsen reports to them.

      • Xanna Don’t

        Nielsen is antiquated.

        • TV&MovieBuff

          Antiquated or not it is still what determines whether a show gets cancelled or not. Until someone comes up with something different it is what it is. If you have the money and the know how to come up with something different more power to you. Go do it. Until then I’ll live in the real world and read these ratings each week and know that if my show doesn’t do better it might be cancelled. Hundreds of shows have been cancelled in the last few years in both daytime and primetime and their fans all claimed that more people were watching than what Nielsen said. Guess what — THEY STILL GOT CANCELLED.

    • Andrew Hass

      Ratings helps soaps get advertisers.Yeah people can watch soaps in a lot of different ways nowadays but without advertisers the soaps might go away.Plus some people might record the soaps and then watch them at night when they have more time.

    • JayTN

      Obviously SOMEONE watches that way, otherwise those numbers above would be zero. If this article is “irrelevant”, than all of those other TV ratings websites are also irrelevant. Daily primetime ratings reports also utilize live and same day ratings.

      Like it or not, advertisers pay the bills for the broadcast and cable networks. Until the networks can figure out a way for advertisers to pay as much or more for shows 3 or 7 days after they (and their commercial ads) air, the live + same day ratings will remain important…and relevant.

  • TV&MovieBuff

    Good to see Y&R and B&B up. Hopefully the trend will continue.

  • tracy

    How is it that B&B can gain over 4 millions viewers on the day when President Obama pre-emptied the show on that day
