    Daytime Ratings: ‘The View’ is Least Watched Season-to-Date

    After reporting 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 Soap Opera Network each week.

    Daytime Ratings: Adults 18-49 vs. Women 18-49 and the Men ?

    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.

    REPORT: The Political Role of Soaps, Talk Shows, Game Shows and More!

    As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that “General Hospital,” “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Talk,” “The Steve Harvey Show” and even “Judge Judy,” among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as “CBS Sunday Morning,” “NBC Nightly News,” “Nightline,” the Sunday editions of both “Good Morning America” and “The Today Show,” and even game show “The Price is Right,” aired more Republican ads.

    DAYTIME RATINGS: Should Advertisers Consider Men Over Women?

    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. More

    100 Pages A Day: The Genre Isn’t A Silly Little Genre

    “It’s such a great opportunity for people to see how good these actors can be and that the genre isn’t a silly little genre. It’s actually a very valid form of storytelling where actors are really doing amazing work,” says “All My Children” actress Cady McClain (Dixie Martin) in the newest Hulu video promoting the returns to Pine Valley and Llanview (“One Life to Live”), entitled “100 Pages a Day.” More

    ‘Good Afternoon America’ Ties or Slightly Beats ‘Revolution’ Season Average, Plus More Ratings Deets

    Although “Good Afternoon America” showed some gains over the recent performance of ratings eyesore “The Revolution,” those gains could only last so long. The ABC News daytime talk show hosted by “Good Morning America’s” Lara Spencer and Josh Elliott has also failed to bring in an audience on par with the year-ago airings of the canceled “One Life to Live” after five weeks of ratings data (week of August 6-10, 2012).
