THE NUMBERS

During the week of May 20-24, 2024, ABC’s daytime lineup consisting of “The View” (2.289 million), “General Hospital” (1.903 million) and “GMA3: What You Need to Know” (1.291 million) continued to post alarming numbers among the key sales demographics, each hitting, tying or close to their season low in both unrounded Women 18-49 and unrounded Women 25-54 rating.

Eight weeks into the second quarter, “The View” and “General Hospital,” in particular, are seeing significant erosion in both key demographics, the most among all daytime broadcast shows compared with the second quarter in 2023, with declines among demo viewers near or above 30%. “GMA3: What You Need to Know” is experiencing declines above 25%.

Among Women 18-49 viewers, ABC is down at least 30%, while CBS’ lineup is down by single digits during 2Q24 compared to 2Q23.

As for Toal Viewers, nearly every show gained compared to their week ago performance (week of May 13-17, 2024), except for the first half-hour of “The Price is Right” (3.628 million) and “The Young and the Restless” (3.009 million). Despite gaining just +1,000 viewers over the week ago period, “General Hospital” averaged under two million viewers for the sixth consecutive week and the 12th time overall this season. 

The only shows to see an increase compared to the same week last year were “The View” (+88,000), “TODAY 3rd Hour” (1.844 million; +77,000), “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna” (1.336 million; +10,000) and “NBC News Daily” (1.136 million; +166,000).
