It's nice to see AMC go up in women 18-34 and 18-49, and it happened the week after Zzzendull! :lol: Let's hope Frons got the message that those 2 are not wanted here.

What message that people don't want to see their return be about Greenlee which it was?

That's why Frons talks about wanting Thorsten back in the newest SID. mmmkay

Nice try though, you get an E for effort ;)

Yeah so much to write home about, AMC is bordering on ATWT territory. If anything the demos went up cause of Palmer's memorial and DC leaving.

AMC and OLTL are gonna be vying for last place once ATWT is gone.

Yeah so much to brag about :lol:

Impressed by GH steady rise but, aside from that, ABC is in such rough shape--especially AMC, which wasn't doing all that bad a few months ago. Considering it airs at 2pm in the east and has a lousy lead, OLTL is holding on. I'm really impressed by the manner in which ATWT is holding on despite cancellation and no promo. GL fell hard in the final months but World is holding steady in the gutter (.2) with all of the other shows: CBS should be taking a look at this.

Just a random thought... I sure would like to know what the 12-17 year-old ratings were like back in the 90's when soaps were still popular (I was that age range at that time too). I'm sure DAYS was off the charts.

Reilly's DAYS 1.0 is basically the last soap to really "grandmother" a wave of future soap fans. Most of those fans left, but some of them stayed. It wouldn't surprise me at all if DAYS' numbers were off the charts back then.

I think the days of any significant increase over a memorial or an actor leaving the show are probably over. Still, Palmer's memorial was one of the higher rated episodes of AMC's week.

With the constant stunts Y&R pulls to get attention, and with the debut of Daytime Confidential and Nelson Branco favorite Eden Reigel, that increase is probably the minimum they could have received. If they start to drop again then perhaps the hype is garnering increasingly diminishing returns, similar to GH last year, when the increasingly transparent stunts (toxic balls and Franco and JJ, oh my) caused ratings to leak until the more consistent focus on All Sonny's Children made the numbers stabilize.

OLTL is just horrid in almost every way. It's only saving grace at the moment is that Viki is back and she and Charlie are repairing their relationship and...um...and...um...yup, that's all. The constant victimization of Marty, the incessant Todd propping, the musical and all the messes attached to the teen scene, Natalie and Jessica's pathetic, almost psychotic self-absorption, and Rex's neverending search for his daddy? Ugh. Just ugh.

We don't have to agree, but OLTL is not horrid in almost every way. Actually, the show has been very good for the past few weeks. Granted, they should end the Jessica stuff soon, but the show is not the worst at all. I'm a Y&R viewer also and that show is the one that's a mess. IMO, the only good story going on right now is the Tucker stuff and that's been put on the back burner.

Yes, Y&R is #1 and OLTL is at the bottom. Apparently, there is no fairness in the universe because at this point in time IMO Y&R does not deserve to be at the top and OLTL does not deserve to be at the bottom.

Is it just me or is too much emphasis being placed on rank rather than ratings? I mean, GH is number 3 and OLTL is last but GH brought in a 1.9 and OLTL a 1.7. Really, not that big of a difference considering since I started watching OLTL in '91, it has never gotten higher ratings than GH, as far as I recall. Never. And I don't think it's horrid right now; there is just no story that makes me think I have to tune in the next day to see what happens. Not one.

AMC is not on at 2pm in the east it's 1pm. OLTL is not holding on right now either.

Agreed, aside from the Bell shows, all soaps are basically tied with this being true also in demos. A .4 difference means nothing when it comes to selling adverts! Right now, AMC and ATWT are garnering the same amout of money per 30 second slot; in this case, the only difference is that ABC walks with all of the AMc money without having to spit it up with another production company. The ratings have become a joke and the attitudes cliche. An example are the ATWT demos which are only .2 different than OLTL and .3 from AMC. All soaps bring in older viewers and all the hand ringing over this stuff means nothing when it comes to bottom line.

I'm bummed out that ATWT is doing about the same as all the other soaps but going off the air because of it being a PGP non-netwoek show. The show is holding steady, not in free fall like GL, and could reboud with a new writer and production team. The truth is that most of the soaps will be gone within a few years and, whatever is left, probably flipped over to cable. I am curious about the total numbers for the soaps when you add up daytime, soapnet and online viewing including YouTube clips. I'm willing to bet the numbers get far bigger when you add in all the people who watch fav characters for ten minutes on YouTube. YouTube should be forced to pay the networks for this content and go down just the same as Napster. Free music and Tube clips are destroying the entertainment industry.

Was checking out the ratings from 2004 and finally realized what has happened to soaps: all the young people stopped watching. In 2004, the average 18-34 rating was LARGER than today's total household number. In some cases, the 18-35 numbers were were really big with Days getting a 3.1 in the demo. Where did the average 30 year old go? My guess in that they went online because during the last six years there has been such a spead in wi-fi and smart phones. Cable was already there and while today's lineups migh be somewhat stronger, I'm doubting that this has had that much of an impact.
