THE NUMBERS

Despite the Memorial Day holiday, during which most shows were coded as specials and are therefore not factored into the weekly averages except for “The Price is Right” (3.666 million / 4.246 million), the week of May 27-31, 2024 was not a good one for daytime broadcast.

Currently in its 15th season, “Let’s Make a Deal” (1.923 million / 2.293 million) hit a series low among Total Viewers, with the first half-hour falling below two million viewers for the first time and the second half-hour attracting numbers in line with what the first half-hour had been averaging for most of the season. Both half-hours had the biggest week-to-week decline among Total Viewers, losing -100,000 viewers and -92,000 viewers, respectively. Compared to the same week last year, the second half-hour was down -315,000 viewers and the first half-hour was down -292,000 viewers.

The Young and the Restless” (2.975 million) hit a new season low among Total Viewers and saw the biggest year-to-year decline overall, dropping -333,000 viewers compared to the same week last year.

General Hospital” (1.853 million) once again averaged less than two million viewers, marking the seventh consecutive week the show has done so and the 13th time this season. Additionally, the series hit a new season low among Total Viewers, tied its series low among unrounded Women 18-49 (0.18 rating) and tied its series low among unrounded Women 25-54 (0.31 rating). 

For the ninth time this season (not including ties), “The View” (2.259 million) beat its network sibling among unrounded Women 18-49 (0.19 rating for “The View” vs. 0.18 rating for “General Hospital”). Speaking of “The View,” the daytime talk show was one of only three shows to see year-to-year growth among Total Viewers, adding +55,000 viewers compared to the same week last year. The other two shows seeing year-over-year growth were “The Talk”* (1.218 million; +14,000 viewers) and “NBC News Daily” (1.110 million; +111,000 viewers).

What follows is a breakdown of how the daytime broadcast shows performed during the week of May 27-31, 2024 in Women 18-49, Women 25-54, Households and Total Viewers, including a look at their performance during the comparable week last year. A closer look at the daytime soaps, including their daily performance breakdown in the demos, will be posted shortly.
