For the first time ever, Soap Opera Network is releasing the individual Live+Same Day versus Live+7 Days (delayed viewing) ratings performance numbers for “The Bold and the Beautiful.”

These numbers compare the show’s reported performance shown in our regular weekly ratings reports versus the show’s performance season-to-date when factoring in delayed viewing.

In this report, we’ll be showing you how the show has performed thus far during the 2020-2021 television season in the categories of Total Viewers, Women 18-49 Viewers and Women 25-54 Viewers. We’ll also present how the show has performed in Men 18+ Viewers and Adults 18-49 Rating.

Note: Season-to-date figures are known in the industry as “most current,” meaning the numbers are intermixed with final delayed viewing (Live+7) figures and Live+SD numbers that have not yet been finalized. This means the latter two weeks shown at the bottom of each category only includes the Live+SD numbers. Additionally, averages are based on each week’s total number unrounded up/down. Differences reflect an increase between the averages of Live+SD and Live+7. All numbers are tallied by The Nielsen Company.
