Let’s Make a Deal

Although "Good Afternoon America" showed some gains over the recent performance of ratings eyesore "The Revolution," those gains could only last so long. The ABC News daytime talk show hosted by "Good Morning America's" Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott has also failed to bring in an audience on par with the year-ago airings of the canceled "One Life to Live" after five weeks of ratings data (week of August 6-10, 2012).
Call it the case of a pissed off audience or call it a fluke, but whatever it is the mystery of where "General Hospital's" audience went by its Friday, March 2, 2012 episode is up in the air.
You may be asking yourself why in the world would we be doing a ratings reflection that highlights ABC's canceled "All My Children" as ranking second in households (amongst all soaps) for the season when the show has already gone off the air with its last episode airing on Friday, September 23 and talk show "The Chew" already replacing the soap in its old timeslot. If I were to tell you that because ABC scheduled the series finale of "AMC" during the first week of the 2011-2012 television season that the soap would remain in the season-to-date rankings until September 2012, would you believe it? You better!
"One Life to Live" star Kassie DePaiva (Blair Cramer) had many fans in attendance at last weekends "One Life to Live" Fan Club Weekend Luncheon scratching their heads when she said "I was told by our executive producer [Frank Valentini] yesterday, that on Wednesday [August 10] we tied with 'Y&R.'" Considering "The Young and the Restless" is daytime's #1 soap, we thought she may have made a mistake too, but it turns out she wasn't wrong at all.

As the daytime drama continues its climb up the endangered species list, frustrated soap fans aren't the only ones starting to panic. A recent report by TheWrap states that advertisers are beginning to grow concerned as well, preferring soap operas to the talk and game shows that are replacing them.
