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.
