The program, which aired from 1:00-3:00 p.m. EDT, was hosted by "World News Tonight" anchor David Muir and brought in 7.9 million viewers with about 2.1 million in the Adults 25-54 demo, nearly tripling the average of what all-new episodes of "The Chew" and "General Hospital" would have attracted in the time period.

After struggling in the fall, ABC's "The View" appears to be turning things around. The daytime talk show, along with network counterpart "The Chew," attracted their largest audiences in a year, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data for the week of January 18-22, 2016.
After <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2015/12/full-daytime-ratings-adults-18-49-breakdown">reporting</a> how daytime stacks up when looking at the Adults 18-49 demo as used by primetime advertisers, one has to wonder what daytime looks like in the actual key sales demo of Women 18-49 when it comes to the season-to-date rankings. What's surprising is how poorly "The View" does overall, and how well "General Hospital" is actually doing when factoring in the Live+7* numbers vs. the traditionally reported Live+SD** numbers seen here on <em>Soap Opera Network</em> each week.
As we prepare to publish another week's worth of ratings covering the daytime soaps "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Young and the Restless," we felt it was worth noting the difference between daytime and primetime when it comes to demographics as part of a year-end report.
Surging to its best numbers in over a year in viewers, ABC's "General Hospital" averaged 3.186 million viewers during the week of February 16-20, 2014, according to newly released Nielsen Media Research ratings data.

Meanwhile, "The Chew" hit three month highs in viewers (3.042 million) and 10-week highs in Women 18-49 (497,000/0.8 rating) and Women 25-54 (656,000/1.1rating) – since the weeks of 11/24/14 and 12/8/14, respectively.
"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" has been entertaining millions of late night talk show fans since debuting earlier this year as an escape from late night talk shows. The premise of the HBO series is that host <strong>John Oliver</strong> takes a closer look at the happenings of the past week in terms of news, politics and social media, and culls it altogether into one half hour of entertainment that seeks to empower and inform its viewers. In a segment highlighting a "CBS This Morning" report on a device known as the Salmon Cannon, Oliver, who was so in awe of the Salmon Cannon concept, gives viewers insight into the purpose (it helps push the Salmon that typically get caught in hydroelectric dams over said dams) and decided to make his own, which resulted in the flying fish hitting several of television's biggest stars including "The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Sharon Case</strong> (Sharon Newman) during a made up "Y&R" scene featuring co-star <strong>Joshua Morrow</strong> (Nicholas Newman) as the two fight over Sharon's hidden secrets.
With ABC becoming full owner of "The View," after buying out <strong>Barbara Walters</strong>' stake over the summer, the network announced today that the daytime talker will now fall under the purview of ABC News after more than 17 years under the entertainment division, this despite a drastic makeover this fall with the inclusion of three new hosts joining<strong> Whoopi Goldberg</strong> on the panel. With the talk show now falling under the umbrella of the news division, “General Hospital" and "The Chew" remain the only entertainment programming airing during the daytime on the network.

Each Monday, we plan to publish our weekly Daytime Ratings Report, which covers the broadcast soaps, game shows and talk shows. Unfortunately, due to an arm injury I sustained last Thursday, my typing skills have been put to the test and the report was delayed. Alas, I'm feeling a lot less pain than I did for much of the past week so here now is the daytime ratings report for the week of September 29-October 3, 2014. Better late than never, right? This week we highlight how the broadcast shows ranked overall in Total Viewers, Men 18+, Adults 18-49 and Median Age.
As <em>Soap Opera Network</em> gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on <strong>Wednesday, October 8</strong>, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with <a href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/10/ratings-great-week-bb">weekly ratings reports</a> for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful."

With the new television season kicking off in just a few weeks, ABC stations that signed up to air the no longer in production daytime talker "Katie" in 2012, following ABC's decision to secede the 3:00 PM ET/2:00 PM PT network time slot to their affiliates in hopes that most of them would choose to pick up the talk show, has resulted in some of those stations deciding to move the network's "General Hospital" back to where it aired for more than 25 of its 51+ year run, it was confirmed today by ABC.
