I know the transit strike was pre-empting the soaps like crazy that week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), local ABC (in NYC) was particuarly interrupting for anything, their was atleast almost one full episode of GH they interrupted. AMC, OLTL were also getting a lot of interruptions. I'm surprised all the soaps didn't look worse for that, NY is one of the largest markets if not the largest. Maybe the CBS/ABC NY folk can pick up on what was happening with those network and their local affiliates. But again it wasn't a holiday week (12/19-23), this week is a holiday week!

The ratings really look bad. Compared to last year, the week leading up to Christmas, 5 Soaps had ratings over a 3.0 (Y&R, B&B, GH, Days & AMC). This year only Y&R and B&B were over a 3.0. This weeks numbers are usually the holiday spike, last year in the week between Christmas & New Years, 7 soaps had ratings at a 3.0 or higher. The numbers out for last week only echo the sentiment that soap viewership is down acrossed the board. There doesn't seem to be one answer out there to stop the bleeding. Not a good thing going into 2006.

That was last Thursday, which could explain GL (in some markets) and GH freefalling on Thursday. I know GH was re-aired in the middle of the night.

In New York, the Thursday shows for both GL and ATWT (and possibly B&B) were aired Friday morning beginning at 1:37.

Let's hope all the shows get a boost for Christmas week!

Friday: 2.0/2,823,000

Those total viewers is actually VERY good for PSNS!

Please get above 2.0 in HH & 3,000,000 viewers next week! PLEASE!

I think PSNS did pretty well considering how often it got pre-empted during the strike for breaking news. And it's nice to see Days up a spot. I will actually look forward to ratings in the coming weeks, especially once Days' current storyline kicks into high gear. :)

Passios nearly hit 3 million viewers on the Friday. AMC had a consistent week but wow look at DAYS big shot in viewers up to #3 overall... AMC hit 2.0 in 18-49 for the first time I think since like last May or June so that's good news!!!

OLTL's ratings have been really poor for a couple of months now.

Although I am enjoying the show as much as ever and think Higley is doing a SUPERB job, I do not understand why she is cut so much slack when Michael Malone's ratings last year were a bit better. Maybe ABC is willing to stand by her because they think she is helming a quality show? However, she needs to watch her back. It's too bad, because everything shouldn't revolve around ratings; the sad fact is, though, that it does.

Congrats to AMC for going up. They have caught a hell of a lot of flak this year (as OLTL did in '04), so it's nice to see them making a turn-around for the New Year.

OLTL had an amazing year and kudos to ABC for letting Higley take the reigns and do what she wanted to.... OLTL has hit a bit of a rut lately for me as I am not enjoying the show as much as I was in the summer but still Dena is doing an "ok" job. AMC is finally rising and much better in terms of quality, I am back to fully enjoying my #1 soap again.
