General Hospital

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — “General Hospital” is the only soap opera left on the ABC Daytime schedule and is also the longest running dramatic series in the networks history. Unfortunately, the soap is facing the same cancellation danger that its former network counterparts (“All My Children” and “One Life to Live”) faced just over a year ago before ABC officially announced the two would go off the air in a press release. Before any decision on the future of “GH” is ultimately made, the drama series is showing an uptick in key demos and viewership.

For the week of February 27 – March 2, 2012, “General Hospital” averaged 2.4 million viewers (highest since week of January 9, 2012), 657,000 Women 18-49 viewers (18-week high) and 871,000 Women 25-54 viewers (three-month high) per ratings details released today by Marc Berman of TV Media Insights. Compared to its performance during the week of February 20-24, 2012, “GH” increased its Women 18-49 performance by 59,000 viewers and retained a similar overall viewership total. By comparison, “The Revolution,” which hit its second most-watched week since its debut (week of January 16, 2012), averaged just 1.62 million viewers.

“The Revolution” is down 23 percent in total viewers, 27 percent in Women 25-54 rating, 38 percent in Women 18-49 rating and 40 percent in Women 18-34 rating compared to “One Life to Live’s” performance on the year-ago (week of February 28, 2011).

ABC Press Release:

“The Chew” posted a 7-week high in Total Viewers (2.489 million – since week of 1/9/12), climbing by an impressive 11% over “All My Children’s” year-ago delivery (vs. 2.249 million), by 10% in Women 25-54 (1.1 rating vs. 1.0 rating) and tying in Women 18-34 (0.4 rating) and Women 18-49 (0.7 rating).

“General Hospital” recorded 18-week highs in Women 18-49 (657,000) and Women 25-54 (871,000), since the week of 10/24/11, a 13-week high in Women 18-34 (172,000 – since the week of 11/28/11) and a 7-week high in Total Viewers (2.403 million – since the week of 1/9/12).

“The Revolution” delivered its most-watched week in Women 25-54 (485,000 – tied debut week) and 2nd-most-watched week to date in Total Viewers (1.624 million) and Women 18-49 (351,000), behind only its premiere week, posting an impressive 4th consecutive week of gains in Total Viewers.

Moreover, Friday’s show was the series’ #2 telecast ever in Women 25-54 (531,000), while Wednesday’s show was its #4 telecast to date in Total Viewers (1.761 million).
