General Hospital
ALL THINGS RELATED

The 50th Anniversary season of ABC's "General Hospital" is on pace of bringing the soap its largest overall audience in five years, the network noted today based on Nielsen Media Research Data. In addition, for the week of September 2, the daytime drama series hit 2-year highs in Women 18-49 (734,000/1.1 rating) and Women 25-54 (967,000/1.6 rating), 10-month high in Women 18-34 (274,000/0.8 rating) and 5-month high in Total Viewers (2.75 million) as "baby fever" continued to power much of the shows overall storyline. In fact, Thursday's telecast (September 5), featuring the imminent birth of Britt's baby, stood as the series' most-watched telecast in nearly over 2 years in Women 18-49 (845,000) and Women 25-54 (1.06 million) and in 8 months in Women 18-34 (342,000) - since 8/15/11 and 1/18/13, respectively.
Things are about to start looking a bit different in Genoa City, as “The Young and the Restless” has named its new headwriters: Current ‘Y&R’ scribe Shelly Altman and daytime writer Jean Passanante will share the position, along with ‘Y&R’ scribe Tracey Thomson, who’s been promoted to co-writer within the new, all female headwriting team.
