In the current issue of TV Guide, on newsstands now, the magazine examines the four remaining daytime soaps consisting of "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" and how FOX's "Empire" may have influenced a push for more diversity in 2015 during love in the afternoon.

Who says daytime soaps are dead? In 2015, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and "The Bold and the Beautiful" and NBC's "Days of our Lives" all placed among 2015's top searched non-reality TV shows on Yahoo! In fact, outside of "The Walking Dead" and "Game of Thrones," all three dramas placed in the top five on the search giant's year-end list.
After reporting how daytime stacks up when looking at the Adults 18-49 demo as used by primetime advertisers, one has to wonder what daytime looks like in the actual key sales demo of Women 18-49 when it comes to the season-to-date rankings. What's surprising is how poorly "The View" does overall, and how well "General Hospital" is actually doing when factoring in the Live+7* numbers vs. the traditionally reported Live+SD** numbers seen here on Soap Opera Network each week.
As we prepare to publish another week's worth of ratings covering the daytime soaps "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless," we felt it was worth noting the difference between daytime and primetime when it comes to demographics as part of a year-end report.
