CBS Daytime
CBS Daytime is showing across the board ratings growth compared to one week prior and the same week last year, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of February 8-12, 2016. The network held the top six programs in Total Viewers and the top four in both Women 25-54 and Women 18-49, the key sales demos that determine ad rates for daytime programs. The network remains the industry leader throughout the February Sweeps ratings period that began Thursday, February 4.
After struggling in the fall, ABC's "The View" appears to be turning things around. The daytime talk show, along with network counterpart "The Chew," attracted their largest audiences in a year, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of January 18-22, 2016.
CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and "The Young and the Restless" were both up week-to-week in total viewers during the week of January 18-22, 2016, according to newly released ratings data. Showing a dramatic uptick in audience throughout its current iteration, "Let's Make a Deal 2" delivered its largest weekly audience ever. "Let's Make a Deal 1" delivered its best performance since January 31, 2014.

The death of Daniel Jonas (Shawn Christian) and the dilemma surrounding who would get his heart --- Eric Brady (Greg Vaughan) or Brady Black (Eric Martsolf) -- helped lift NBC's "Days of our Lives" to its most watched week in two years in Total Viewers and an 18-month high in Women 18-49, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of January 4-8, 2016.
