That's why I don't have a lot of hope for DAYS being able to hold on to the increase. Half the viewers are guys. The dailies should be fascinating. I can't wait to see which sport resulting in the largest audience holdover. tongue.gif


I didn't even pay attention to the male demo. That's not a good sign in terms of holding on to people

That's 8 weeks in a row now that OLTL is #1 in teen girls. When I saw DAYS gaining so many viewers, I thought for sure they'd be #1 in that demo.

I don't know if more people are actually watching Days. My brother, for example, is just keeping his TV on through the hour.
But whatever works.

Errol I would really enjoy reading a column from you on the ratings. I know you probably have other things to write about, but regardless I thought I would mention it.

I know a little about polling and surveys so I have a lot of confidence in the science behind the ratings. However, when surveys do not work well -- and we discussed this in another thread -- is when those surveyed are somehow fundamentally different from those who are not surveyed. That is what I wonder about daytime. Are people who watch daytime fundamentally different from other viewers in their habits. For example, is someone who watches daytime more likely to DVR multiple shows or to DVR a week's worth of shows and then watch it over the weekend. I have no doubt that fewer people are watching daytime, but I wonder if the decline is a steep as it appears to be. Or are some of the half-million people drops from Monday to Friday more a function of viewing habits then loss of interest? Anyway just a babbling thought -- you know in case you need unsolicited help on your column. laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif


Um, what? huh.gif huh.gif huh.gif

Someone actually reads what I write? You're not joking? lol.

Don't worry, I will do a write up of the latest ratings report soon and I will be introducing another new column for commentary either later tonight or tomorrow. In addition to my new Editor's Notebook column.

Thanks Jess for your input!

I'm thrilled for Days, but the real test will see if they drop .5 or (worse yet) .6 next week, or manage to hold on to the viewers.


I doubt it. As someone pointed out the Olympics are slipping this week. And so will Days back to the 1.8-1.9 range.

ATWT sucks. They went down...ugh...Goutman and Pissant deserve this and so much more.

OLTL....lol...still with a 1.9. I am surprised it hasnt dropped further. The show is a hot mess.

Y&R is still continuing to lose the momentum they had.

I haven't watched DOOL in 20 years but during the Olympics I did catch a couple of Days. Marlena looks the same as ever. How does she do that? I saw Drake H, John is his character? He looked good too, and Aniston was on, I think. I had the tv turned to NBC but I did not pay a lot of attention. Looks like plenty of people did the same, but I don't know how that will figure into future ratings.
Toups, thank you once again for the ratings. You are the go-to ratings person and I appreciate it.

Ooh. Cryptic and intriguing yet said with the confidence of someone with data to back up his assertions.

Fluffy is intrigued.

So I know its because of the Olympics, and I am not even a fan, but its so refreshing to see a soap jump like DAYS did this past week. And even though I hate 1968, I'm still happy for OLTL mainting #1 in girls 12-17. I am confident that after this history crap is over, OLTL will return to stellar stories

Up until this week, Jake and Taylor weren't on 5% of the time. Can't really use that as an argument.

To be quite honest with you, I don't know why AMC has plummeted like they have. The stories aren't bad (certainly not as bad as GL) and the balance of the show has greatly improved. I don't fast forward near as much Kendall as I used to.

I wonder how much AMC's ratings were damaged by the Olympics? Not that the show isn't a snoozefest, of course. I'm really not holding out much hope for Pratt. It just looks like more of the same. I'm about to just give up on the show after watching all these years. I just don't care anymore. OLTL is little better...just dull and borderline pretentious. Y&R is predictably coming down to earth from its inflated ratings. Like the other shows, it now tells event-driven plots to spike the ratings, which inevitably fall after the event climaxes. Speaking of inflated ratings, as someone above noted, Days will be back in the upper 1's once the Olympics are over. The show is mediocre at best. On the plus side, I've actually kind of been enjoying ATWT. It's hardly a great show, but they do make an effort to keep the show grounded with relatable characters played by attractive yet reasonably real-looking actors and with an emphasis on the vets. Flame me, but even though it's not a wonderful show, I think it's the best one out there right now. Says a lot about the state of daytime.

Figured some may have wanted to read it...

http://www.soapopera...tings-august-11

(SoapOperaNetwork.com) -- I've always thought that if you put on quality television with good writing combined with great acting, you'd find yourself well positioned for growth in the Nielsen Ratings. NBCs "Days of our Lives" proved just that during the week of August 11, 2008, when it moved up to 3rd place in the Nielsen rankings, pulling a 2.4/8 in households. Oh, wait...the Olympics were on. Never mind.

With the Summer 2008 Beijing Olympic games as a lead-in, "Days of our Lives" was able to bring in 500,000 more households than they had the week prior, and 400,000 more than at the same point last year. Similarly, 3.1 million viewers tuned into the soap, which was an increase of 629,000 viewers over last week and 514,000 more than last year. The soap was also able to reclaim the #1 position in the coveted Women 18-34 demographic with a 1.1/7, a position it has not held in sometime. While all soaps were up in Girl viewers aged 12-17, "DAYS" was able to place second behind only "One Life to Live" (70,000 viewers vs 72,000) in the demo, which was an increase of 25,000 viewers.

ABC's "All My Children" once again hit series lows as it fell to 6th place in households (tie with "As The World Turns") with a 1.8/6. Only 2.4 million viewers tuned in to see what was happening in Pine Valley, a mere 20,000 viewer advantage over daytime's lowest rated drama "Guiding Light." "Light" placed 8th among all soap operas with a 1.6/5 in households and 2.2 million viewers, a massive decline of 400,000 viewers from last year.

Overall "The Young and the Restless" lost the most viewers year-over-year with 5.1 million viewers, a decline of 469,000 from last year. "The Bold and the Beautiful" lost the least amount of viewers year-over-year with 3.5 million viewers, a decline of just 135,000 viewers.

ABC Daytime handed over the title of biggest loser among the big three networks to CBS, as the network lost just 1 million viewers combined year-to-year, while CBS lost 1.3 million.
