As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows “,” “,” “,” “” and “,” as well as game shows “Let’s Make a Deal” and “,” along with the previously reported for “,” “,” “” and “.” The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.

What follows is the daytime rankings for the week of September 22-26, 2014 in the categories of Total Viewers, Households, Women 25-54 Viewers, Women 18-49 Viewers and the rarely seen Adults 18-49 Viewers.

Note: Numbers are based on Live+Same Day
