THE NUMBERS

After a steep fall one week earlier, both half hours of “The Price is Right” bounced back during the week of March 21-25, 2022 to hit five-week highs in Total Viewers, Women 18-49 and Women 25-54 rating (since the week of February 21-25, 2022).

Leading the pack was the second half-hour of the game show (4.677 million) followed by the first half-hour (4.105 million) in second place. “The Young and the Restless” (3.403 million) gained just 1,000 viewers week to week to place third while the second half-hour of “Let’s Make a Deal” placed fourth with 2.887 million viewers. Rounding out the top five, placing fifth, “The Bold and the Beautiful” (2.736 million) fell the hardest of any daytime broadcast series week to week in Total Viewers, down -111,000.

Tying “TODAY 3rd Hour” in Women 18-49 the previous week, “Y&R” held sole possession of the third place position in the demo (0.39 rating, +0.02) and also placed third in Women 25-54 (0.61 rating, -0.01). Ranking seventh in Women 18-49 (0.31 rating, -0.04)  and sixth in Women 25-54 (0.47, -0.10), “B&B” again fell the most week to week in both demographics. “The View” (0.29, -0.01) was the only other daytime broadcast series to fall week to week in Women 18-49. Other shows falling in Women 25-54 week to week were “Y&R” (0.61, -0.01), “General Hospital” (0.42, -0.04), “The View” (0.37, -0.04) and “GMA3: What You Need to Know” (0.30, -0.05). 

“The Talk” again ranked last among all daytime broadcast series in Women 18-49 rating, up +0.01 week to week (0.22 vs 0.21) while “GMA3” ranked last in Women 25-54 rating. “The Talk” gained viewers week to week, up +40,000 viewers while “GMA3” was down, losing -85,000 viewers week to week.

Days of our Lives” beat “The View” in Women 25-54, placing 10th in the demo with the talk show falling to 11th place. “DAYS” was up +0.01 in the demo and also gained +9,000 viewers week to week (1.623 million vs 1.614 million).

Viewing levels were hitting multi-year highs in 2020 during the initial shutdown of the country due to COVID-19. That being said, all shows are also down significantly compared to their 2019 figures with the exception of “GH” among Total Viewers. During the comparable week in 2019, “GH” averaged 2.288 million viewers, a difference of just 171,000 viewers.

Note: Year to Year comparisons are currently unavailable due to a gap in data received by Soap Opera Network one year earlier. Demographic comparisons to 2021 figures will return next week and Total Viewers and Households will return in a few weeks.

Comparable 2020 figures for “GMA3: What Need to Know” are based on the performance of “Pandemic: What You Need to Know.” The current iteration was rebranded effective June 2020. “The Talk” was not rated by Nielsen during the comparable week in 2020.
