Daytime and Primetime Television Ratings | Soap Opera Network
The series premiere of FOX's "Empire" on Wednesday night attracted 9.9 million viewers and a 3.8/10 in Adults 18-49, reports TVbytheNumbers, based on rush nationals ordered by the network. "Empire" now ties ABC's "How to Get Away with Murder" for the highest rated series premiere of the season in the key sales demo.
Tuesday, January 6 marked the third season premiere of OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network's "The Haves and the Have Nots," created by Tyler Perry and starring "One Life to Live" alum Tika Sumpter (ex-Layla Williams) as seductress Candace Young, who has immersed herself into the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer and Harrington families. A record 3.22 million viewers tuned in to all the antics going down.
This time last year the stars of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" were celebrating a milestone as the daytime drama series officially marked its 25th consecutive year as the most watched in daytime, as noted in the images above.  Now a year later, the soap opera is celebrating 26 consecutive years at numero uno!
