Info on OLTL rating demos


via press release:


“The Talk” Up +20% in Women 18-34 Over Premiere Week

“The Talk” Also Improves the Year Ago Time Period by +20% in Women 18-34

“The Talk” Matches “One Life to Live” in Women 18-34 for the Second Consecutive Week

THE TALK, CBS’s new daytime talk show, increased by +20% among women 18-34 over premiere week and the year ago time period, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Oct. 29.

THE TALK delivered a 1.5/05 with 2.08m viewers, 1.0/06 in women 25-54, 0.8/05 in women 18-49 and 0.6/04 in women 18-34. Compared to its premiere week, THE TALK was up +20% in women 18-34 (from 0.5/04) and even in both women 25-54 and women 18-49.

Compared to “As the World Turns” during the same week last year, THE TALK was up +20% in women 18-34 (from 0.5/03). THE TALK also tied the veteran time period winner “One Life to Live” in women 18-3 for the second consecutive week.

So THE TALK fell to 1.5? Last week they were 1.6.

"Nationally, THE TALK delivered a 1.6/06 with 2.14m viewers, 1.0/07 in women 25-54, 0.8/05 in women 18-49 and 0.5/04 in women 18-34. Notable for a freshman series in its first week, THE TALK tied veteran time period winner “One Life to Live” among women 18-34."

Be interesting to see how OLTL stacked up against them last week.

I get it. CBS' strategy here is not what people think it is. I see everyone comparing them to The View and while they are both talk shows (and I am sure at some point CBS wants The Talk to be as popular)they operate at different times. It's clear that for now they are competing against OLTL....you know the "VETERAN TIME PERIOD WINNER" in that slot. :lol: And also trying to either beat or stay in range of ATWT demos, preferably to beat.

And they are trying to do it from all angles, one bit at a time - sure they want to do better but they probably realise that they do have their work cut out for them as well.

The Talk falls in both HHs and Total Viewers...and CBS tries to spin it in a good way. with its crappy 18-34 category. Of course it will continue to run since it is cheap but the ratings will continue to drop.

If that's what they're doing it's a dumb strategy, IMO. Wow, they tied a declining show which many people have never heard of, and they barely have higher demos than a soap they replaced.

It just seems kind of silly to me, and small time. I doubt anyone in the industry cares if they tied OLTL, and being so proud of demos only about 20% above ATWT when it was at some of its lowest ratings, after over 5 decades on the air, this when The Talk is still early and still has some buzz -- odd to brag about.

If you only had a clue as to how much MONEY they are saving i.e. no licensing fees (COST CUTS are a big deal now)....and how great that looks to investors & analysts who were so happy with their earnings call today. While we the fans are very sentimental about our shows and want them to stay on for as long as they can, for the company in these times, it is all about the bottom line and how investors can reap the benefit, not to mention their own employees. Plus the upside to all this is that this show is "pure profit" for the company not any one else. No intelligent CFO or advisor is not going to point out my last sentence to LM but he already knows it and that's why his blase comments about ATWT going off the air did not come as a surprise.

If Y&R and B&B can't produce a product that CBS will continued to be enamored with and still consider them "special soaps", we have a problem.

    • Kenny and Ginger's decoration in season one is hilarious, especially the whole bean bags/pillows instead of couches, just to show off what a swingin' couple they are! When Kenny's finally kicked out for a bit Ginger apparently went on a splurge and bought herself a couple of proper furniture.
    • I just watched episode 89 from 11/30/84. The show is finally trying to pick things up with Mason, by having him be accused of his brother's murder. It doesn't really make much sense as to why his sister and father would take the word of a lowlife that Mason was guilty, and why Mason would then suddenly start acting as if he were really guilty, but much about this show just doesn't make sense. Episode 89 features the first knockdown verbal fight between Mason and his father. It would have been so much better if Peter Mark Richman were still in the role of CC. Charles Bateman just didn't have the gravitas or the menace. Richman I believe could punch his son and pull a gun on him; with Bateman, it all just comes off as pretty ridiculous, he's so not believable.
