THE NUMBERS

The daytime broadcast shows had an atypical week during the week of May 8-12, 2023, where very few shows showed improvement compared to last week and last year, while others saw a downtick due to sports-related preemptions.

“The View” (2.233 million) was the standout performer overall, gaining +51,000 viewers over its week ago performance and was up three-hundredths in Women 18-49 and two-hundredths in Women 25-54. 

Compared to its performance one year earlier, “The View” saw the smallest decline among all of the daytime broadcast shows in Total Viewers, dropping just -47,000 viewers year over year. The show was up year-over-year in both of the key sales demographics. All other shows were flat or down in the key demos and among Total Viewers.

Despite airing just two all-new episodes, “The Talk” (1.421 million) saw a week-to-week decline of just -6,000 viewers, the smallest week-to-week decline among all of the daytime broadcast shows. The series was up three-hundredths in Women 18-49 rating and four-hundredths in Women 25-54 rating.

What follows is a breakdown of how the daytime broadcast shows performed during the week of May 8-12, 2023 in Women 18-49 Rating, Women 25-54 rating, Households and Total Viewers, including a look at their comparable performance last year (2022) and two years ago (2021), respectively. A closer look at the daytime soaps, including a daily performance breakdown in the demos, will be posted on Thursday.

Note*: Officially, rankings are sorted by the rounded figures released by Nielsen. We are separately providing the unrounded demos for informational purposes only. “NBC News Daily” year ago and two years ago figures are compared to the performance of “Days of our Lives.”
