The Thursday and Friday episodes of all the CBS soaps are ALWAYS pre-empted for the beginning of March Madness, which kicks off in the third week of March. It's been that way forever and will be again next year if GL is still around.

CBS airs certain events every year that pre-empt all of their soaps. They also won't air on Labor Day or the Friday of that week because of the US Open tennis tournament. Nor will they air on Thanksgiving day, the Friday after, on New Year's Eve, or on New Year's Day.

    • Late 1970s was ABC huge rise and P&G shows tanked. Did viewers suddenly switch over from P&G to ABC, or did ABC get a whole bunch of new viewers? Y&R was going strong in the late 1970s but would stumble in 1980 after expanding to one hour and changing time slots.
    • Agnes Nixon saved Another World from being canceled in the late 1960s and it rose to No. 2 in the ratings defeating General Hospital in the time slot.   When ABC saw what Agnes Nixon did with AW and what happened to GH, ABC approached Nixon to create a soap for ABC....One Life to Live debuted in January 1968 and Nixon finished up her headwriting duties at AW.  Then based on OLTL's performance, ABC wanted another soap. Agnes presented All My Children to ABC and the rest is history.   AW was near the top of the ratings from the late 1960s until its collapse in 1979 with GH's giant rise.
    • I had no idea Another World was ever #1.
    • Thanks for these ratings.  All My Children beginning its rise to Number 1 for the 78 to 79 season and finishing Number 3 in the 77 to 78 season.   Interesting to see Another World and As the World Turns as well as AMC battle it out for Number 1 and within the top 3 spots. Also Shocking that Ryan's Hope is higher than General Hospital. GH was slated for cancellation by Fred Silverman until Gloria Monty saved it.
