Ratings from the 70's

Recommended Posts

I wonder what on EARTH happened in Nov. 78 to cause such a steep drop across daytime. WOW. AW and Family Feud lost half their audience in a year!

Found this in the March 1, 1974, edition of Valley News (Van Nuys, CA), the daytime ratings for a two-week period ending January 27, 1974.

Another list from the same period from Daytime TV.Soaps only

1. DOOL 10.6/35 

2. DRS 10.3/ 36

3. AW 9.8/ 31

4. ATWT 9.6/ 32

5. GH 9.5/30

6. AMC 9.0/ 32

7. OLTL 8.5/ 26

8. SFT 8.1/31

9. TGL 7.8/26

10.EON 7.1/25

 

SO NBC had the top 3 shows, CBS had 4 of the top 10 and ABC 3. 

NBC had 2.00 - 3.30 sewn up with soaps but could never get a successful 3.30 soap, trying with Bright Promise, Return to Peyton Place and How to Survive a Marriage. They finally solved the problem by expanding AW to 60 min.
