With its 3 soap block in the top 5, NBC couldn't get its 3.30 soap to hold viewers after AW. Bright Promise is nowhere to be seen and Return to Peyton Place would be introduced in 72 with hopes of changing that ,but no dice.

It's a wonder that P&G and NBC never considered moving Somerset to the 3:30 PM timeslot following Another World, since Bright Promise did not work in the timeslot.  P&G had that mandate that their shows would not compete with one another, but they would move Edge of Night in 1972, Somerset technically could have moved to the 3:30 timeslot.  Not sure it would have helped Somerset's ratings, but it made sense from a scheduling standpoint to have a one hour block of P&G shows on NBC.
