Disney/ABC Television Group

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Before we post the daytime soap opera ratings for the week of March 26-30, 2012, our friend Marc Berman at TV Media Insights has posted the latest ratings for daytime talk shows and things are still looking very bad for ABC’s “The Revolution” while “The Chew” has sustained a similar total audience in comparison to former time-period occupant “All My Children.” “The View” was in repeats, while “The Talk” on CBS was up year-to-year in total viewers and Women 25-54 rating, flat in Women 18-49 rating and down in Women 18-34 rating.

What follows is a look at the daytime talk show ratings for the week of March 26-30, 2012 and a breakdown of how “Revolution” compares to “One Life to Live” on a year-to-year basis.

“One Life to Live” on ABC began a ratings trajectory on the plus side year-to-year beginning with the week of March 14-18, 2011 in total viewers, when compared to its performance for the same week in 2010 (week of March 29 – April 2, 2010), while either flat or down in some of the key sales demographics (2011 vs 2010), but in 2012 the soaps replacement, “The Revolution,” has eroded any and all audience gains the drama had picked up and has brought in historic lows for the network overall in total viewers, Women 18-49, Women 25-54 and Women 18-34. The “It’s About You” daytime talker tied its historic low in total viewers (1.32 million), and tied or hit new lows in Women 18-49 (0.4/3), Women 25-54 (0.6/4) and Women 18-34 (0.2/2). Year-to-year (week of March 28 – April 1, 2011), “One Life to Live” performed much stronger in total viewers (2.57 million), Women 18-49 (1.0/6), Women 25-54 (1.2/7) and Women 18-34 (0.6/4).

According to Berman, “Revolution” is down a whopping 49% in total viewers compared to “One Life,” while losing 60% in Women 18-49, 50% in Women 25-54 and a jaw dropping 67% in Women 18-34.

CBS’ “The Talk,” featuring some of country music’s biggest stars as guests including Reba McIntyre in promotion of “The 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards” that aired on Sunday, April 1, jumped 10% year-to-year in total viewers (1.96 million to 2.16 million), 11% in Women 25-54 (1.0/7), while flat in Women 18-49 (0.8/5) and down 20% in Women 18-34.

For a look at how “The Chew” performed compared to “All My Children” on the year-ago and more on daytime talk, head on over to TV Media Insights.

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “General Hospital” and “The Revolution” are both fighting for a spot on the fall 2012-2013 schedule on ABC Daytime, although neither appear to be making a solid case for themselves.

During the week of March 19-23, 2012, “General Hospital” was down in numerous key categories year-to-year and hit or tied new series lows in Women 18-49 rating (tied its series low with a 0.8), Women 18-34 (new series low with a 0.3). The remaining daytime soap on ABC was down by a mere 1,000 viewers from its performance the week prior (week of March 12-16, 2012), but the show has hemorrhaged a massive 622,000 viewers compared to its performance on the year-ago (week of March 21-25, 2011). “GH’s” most recent performance is a far cry from its comparable week last year when the soap was on the rise, which helped secure its future just before the network announced it was canceling “All My Children” and “One Life to Live.”

After hitting a series low during the week of March 12-16, 2012, “The Revolution was primed and ready for another series low during the week of March 19-23, 2012, according to figures released Thursday by Marc Berman, Editor in Chief of TV Media Insights.

“One Life to Live,” which last aired on Friday, January 13 of this year, had more than a one million total viewer advantage over “Revolution” and performed 46-60% higher in the key sales demographics including Women 18-49 and Women 18-34 on the comparable week last year (week of March 21-25, 2011). “Revolution” averaged  just 1.32 million viewers compared to “One Life’s” performance the year before when the ABC soap had a total average audience of 2.51 million viewers. On the year-ago in Women 18-49, “One Life” held a 0.9/6 rating compared to the 0.5/3 “Revolution” received (difference of 44%) and in Women 25-54 “One Life” had a 1.3/8 rating compared to “Revolution’s” 0.7/2 (difference of 47%). The “It’s About You” talker barely rated in Women 18-34 with its 0.2/2, which was a difference of 60% from “One Life’s” performance the year before when the soap hit a 0.5/4 rating. Note: “One Life to Live” began its upward swing in all ratings categories beginning with the week of March 14-18, 2011 (the trend continued until its series finale earlier this year).

Ratings Comparison per TV Media Insights:

  • One Life to Live – Week of 3/21/11
    Viewers: 2.51 million, Women 25-54: 1.3/ 8, Women 18-49: 0.9/ 6, Women 18-34: 0.5/ 4
  • The Revolution – Week of 3/19/12
    Viewers: 1.32 million, Women 25-54: 0.7/ 4, Women 18-49: 0.5/ 3, Women 18-34: 0.2/ 2

Percent Change – The Revolution vs. One Life to Live
Viewers: -47, Women 25-54: -46, Women 18-49: -44, Women 18-34: -60

If “Revolution” wasn’t problem enough for ABC, “The Chew” has returned to performing below “All My Children” in key ratings categories. Note: “The View” was in reruns.
