The week of June 20-24, 2022 was another brutal one for daytime broadcast with further losses among Total Viewers for most shows, particularly “The Young and the Restless” (3.048 million) and “Days of our Lives” (1.535 million), caused by numerous preemptions as a result of ongoing news coverage of the January 6th Committee hearings on the 2021 Capitol Assault.

In fact, the soap is also up compared to its rerun-filled week in 2020, gaining +1.364 million viewers, making it one of only two daytime broadcast shows to be up week to week, year to year, and up from its performance in 2020. Further, there were just 130,000 viewers separating third place “Y&R” and fourth place “B&B” among Total Viewers (3.048 million vs 2.918 million).

“General Hospital” (2.060 million) aired just three episodes for the week which included the show’s 15,000th episode. The soap was down -87,000 viewers week to week and down -216,000 viewers compared to the same week last year. Meanwhile, “The View” (2.199 million) saw a small drop in viewers week to week, down -11,000 viewers, and another -63,000 viewers compared to the same week last year.

“Days of our Lives” lost -188,000 viewers week to week, the first full week in which the show aired five episodes after being preempted for sports coverage the two prior weeks. The soap was up slightly from its series low last year, gaining +46,000 viewers year to year.

“The Talk” (1.458 million) remains ahead of “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna (1.336 million) in Total Viewers, and has seen overall increases week to week (+69,000 viewers), year to year (+176,000 viewers) and over its performance in 2020 (+143,000 viewers), making it the only other daytime broadcast series to see an uptick in viewers in the aforementioned categories. Despite the increases, however, the show’s viewership remains on the low side.
