NBC Renews ‘DAYS’ For 2017-18

With the Megyn Kelly drama now behind the network following news of the former FOX News Channel journalist taking over the third hour of "The Today Show" with her own new morning program, NBC has finally made a decision on the future of NBC's "Days of our Lives" and it's a positive one.

‘The View’ Hits Season Highs, ‘The Talk’ Attracts Largest Audience in...

After a tumultuous fall season, ABC's "The View" seems to be turning things around. The daytime talk show beat competing "The Talk" during the week of January 4-8, 2016 in Women 18-49 with its widest margin of the season. "The Talk," however, beat the "The View" in both Total Viewers" and Women 25-54.

Daytime Ratings: ‘The View’ is Least Watched Season-to-Date

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.

Daytime Ratings: Adults 18-49 vs. Women 18-49 and the Men ?

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.

‘The Young and the Restless’ Ranks 5th on Bing’s Most Searched...

As if being the most watched daytime drama series for more than 25 years wasn't enough, CBS Daytime's "The Young and the Restless" has placed fifth on Bing's Top TV Show Searches for 2014, just behind TV's hottest primetime series, AMC's "The Walking Dead." "Y&R" beat out the likes of E!'s now defunct "Chelsea Lately" (#6), NBC's "The Today Show" (#7), HBO's "Game of Thrones" (#8), ABC's "The View" (#9) and FOX's "American Idol" (#10).

REPORT: The Political Role of Soaps, Talk Shows, Game Shows and...

As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.

DAYTIME RATINGS: Should Advertisers Consider Men Over Women?

Each Monday, we plan to publish our weekly Daytime Ratings Report, which covers the broadcast soaps, game shows and talk shows. Unfortunately, due to an arm injury I sustained last Thursday, my typing skills have been put to the test and the report was delayed. Alas, I'm feeling a lot less pain than I did for much of the past week so here now is the daytime ratings report for the week of September 29-October 3, 2014. Better late than never, right? This week we highlight how the broadcast shows ranked overall in Total Viewers, Men 18+, Adults 18-49 and Median Age.

100 Pages A Day: The Genre Isn’t A Silly Little Genre

"It's such a great opportunity for people to see how good these actors can be and that the genre isn't a silly little genre. It's actually a very valid form of storytelling where actors are really doing amazing work," says "All My Children" actress Cady McClain (Dixie Martin) in the newest Hulu video promoting the returns to Pine Valley and Llanview ("One Life to Live"), entitled "100 Pages a Day."
