Daytime Broadcast Ratings for the Week of May 30-June 3, 2022

Find out how daytime broadcast performed during the week of May 30-June 3, 2022 in Total Viewers, Households, Women 18-49 and Women 25-54 rating.

During the week of May 30-June 3, 2022, ABC’s “General Hospital” (2.216 million) not only regained the top spot among the network’s daytime broadcast shows in terms of Total Viewers, but it was also the week’s biggest gainer, adding +128,000 viewers week to week. In fact, the soap was also up compared to its performance during the same week last year, gaining +38,000 viewers. Overall, only the two half hours of “The Price is Right” (3.852 million / 4.412 million) also saw week to week gains among Total Viewers.

Despite losing viewers, down -61,000 week to week, “GMA3: What You Need to Know” (1.619 million) was up by an impressive +203,000 viewers year over year while both “The Young and the Restless” (3.466 million) and “The Bold and the Beautiful” (3.015 million) continued to outshine their year ago performances. The folks in Genoa City saw a year to year bump of +300,000 viewers, the most for any daytime broadcast series even though it shed a mere -7,000 viewers week to week. Meanwhile, the folks in Los Angeles continue their streak of over three million daily viewers, adding +236,000 viewers over last year even with a week to week decrease of -82,000 viewers.

“The View” (2.134 million) took a ratings hit despite airing a memorable 25th-anniversary reunion between the show’s original co-hosts Joy Behar, Meredith Vieira, Star Jones and Debbie Matenopoulos at the Essex House in New York City. The show was down -286,000 viewers week to week and down -178,000 viewers compared to the same week last year.

Even though it aired just two episodes last week (Tuesday, May 31 and Wednesday, June 1), “Days of our Lives” (1.556 million) continues to shed viewers, losing -37,000 of them week to week. Interestingly, the soap was down by just -8,000 viewers year to year when it aired without preemptions.

With the exception of both half hours of “The Price is Right” and “3rd Hour TODAY” (2.065 million) which had their Memorial Day numbers included in their weekly averages, holiday numbers are excluded from the weekly averages for the remaining daytime shows and will not factor into each show’s respective season average. Additionally, Memorial Day airings were either coded as specials or a series did not air due to preemptions – see Notable Preemptions/Schedule Changes for more information.

What follows is a breakdown of how the daytime broadcast shows performed during the week of May 30-June 3, 2022 in Women 18-49 rating, Women 25-54 rating, Households and Total Viewers, including a look at their comparable performance in 2021 and 2020, respectively. A closer look at the daytime soaps, including their daily performance in the demos, will be posted soon.
