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.

Although he's finished his time at "The Young and the Restless" after his character, Joe Clark, was arrested for setting up Cane Ashby (Daniel Goddard) for extortion on the Friday, December 11 episode of the CBS Daytime drama series, actor Scott Elrod is moving on in the new year with an upcoming guest appearance on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and news that he'll be a first time daddy with girlfriend Vanessa Vazart.
With hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were around to promote their new movie "Sisters," last night's final 2015 episode of "Saturday Night Live" featured a daytime drama wrap up presented by Somebody's Mom, Deenie (played by Kate McKinnon) during the popular "Weekend Update" segment. Hilarity ensued as Deenie recapped 2015 on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" with such character descriptions as mustache man, big boobs, sexpot, priss pants, red head, and perfect skin, among others, as a way to describe Genoa City's most prominent citizens.
An all-new season of FOX's "Hell's Kitchen" kicks off on Friday, January 15 and "The Young and the Restless'" Sean Carrigan (Stitch Rayburn) will appear in an upcoming episode as a celebrity diner as host Gordon Ramsay dishes terror among the 18 new chefs competing through an abundance of grueling challenges in order to win the title of Head Chef at BLT Steak, a premier restaurant in Bally's Las Vegas.

With a streak that began with the week of December 26, 1988, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" has now stood at the top of the Nielsen ratings among total viewers for 27 consecutive years, it was announced today by Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution.
With a new year on the horizon it's inevitable that you'll be seeing a multitude of best and worst lists covering every facet of the entertainment world, and soaps are no exception. In his Best and Worst of 2015 report, TV Guide's Michael Logan has named CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" daytime's best soap, praises "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless" for having the best actors and actresses, and calls out some of daytime's current and former writers for insulting viewers with tawdry storylines lacking direction.
