The Revolution posted record lows again, so hopefully that (plus the terrible quality) don't hurt GH too much.

The scenario continues to worsen. Based on the Live Plus Same Day ratings from Nielsen for the week of January 30, week three of ABC daytime talk show The Revolution dipped to 1.44 million viewers, which is now half the audience of year-ago occupant One Life to Live (2.85 million viewers for the week of 1/31/11). Erosion in the three key demos — women 25-54, women 18-49 and women 18-34 — is also 50 percent as illustrated.

Also Toups, I think it would be a good idea to start referencing The Revolution when listing the ratings. It's such a new thing to have GH with no lead-in and you need those numbers for perspective. Yes ratings will be down and whatnot, but to have such a small lead-in and build ratings is a huge thing. Especially if the show starts to see real rating success in coming weeks.

Wow those are horrible numbers. Those numbers are even worse than what GL got its last few months.

Oh WOW!

Those Revolution numbers are really terrible as this show has really flopped hard. The affiliates will be pulling this show off the schedule very soon if some of them already haven't. No way ABC brings this show back in the fall, they can definitely find something better than this or just keep GH.

I really feel bad that GH always has to follow that low-rated program.

I'm ready for the announcement of The Revolution's cancelation. Screw the fact that its cheaper than GH anything else they try to replace with it will only flop harder. GH may have staved off cancelation for at least one more year.

Im thinking more of the same thing. I think this may be GH's saving grace esp if RC and FV get the numbers up. I bet it will be the Rev thats get canned and GH moves to 2pm est

Days and Y&R have been very good. Really hoping for a gains for Days!!

It's too bad TR didn't debut before that food show. If it had, perhaps ABC would've kept OLTL. Now, I can't imagine ABC not moving GH to 2p.m. as soon as KC comes on. However, I'm not sure the affiliates will put up with these ratings for 7 more months. I never thought I'd root for GH to do well, but now with only four shows, I'm hope for the genre's sake that it survives.

yes I do think ABC will think twice now before pink slipping GH def as it's their daytime jewel now. They should ahve waited a year or two before pink clipping OLTL to give that Food show more time to build an audieance. I think these terrible ratings bode very good for Days too.

I also want to add it's still early for The Rev. I am assuimg they will build ther ratings just a bit as time goes on

If the Revulsion has to continue to PAY people $30 to sit in the audience as they tape their show, I wonder how long ABC will continue to want to keep it. From what I understand, most shows have a wait-list for tickets. Revulsion ratings are in the basement and people won't even go to watch live-- sounds like a typical ABC blunder to me. Now, do they cut their losses and replace it with something else (even worse if possible?) or keep GH for 6 mo- 1 year as a lead in for Queen Katie? And I'm just saying it now-- I think Katie will flop too.

    • I wouldn't put the demise of Miami all at Adriana's door. She wasn't the only one lying -- Joanna marrying Romain reeked of insta-TV wedding. Honestly, I blame production for pushing 'Duelling Weddings' as THE ONLY storyline sustaining 16 episodes. Weddings aren't quite the draw Bravo thinks they are, and it was boring watching hours of these chicks trying on dresses, etc. Season 3 suffered from: -a reduced wider cast; -No Mama Elsa (a major factor IMO); -no lightening-rod Karent; -increased toxicity amongst the women.  By the end, most of the cast clearly couldn't stand each other, or were drumming up a bunch of insta-fights (Lisa vs Joanna, Marysol's never-ending hounding of Lea). Lea was ready to peace out of the franchise altogether before it even ended. Reunion was a disaster because the rest of the cast were desperate to make S4 happen and just threw anything at the wall to see what stuck. Adriana, whatever you may think about her, was highly dramatic and a big pot-stirrer. I think she deserves a spot more than Larsa, but we will see how the Miami reboot shakes out. I do worry that we haven't seen any trailer or promo for this, unlike RHUGT which was trailed over a month in advance.
    • It helps that Ben doesn't have a long history with John (they've barely interacted) + it plays into the stroke John had which led to him having outbursts. So it's not completely out of the realm that Ben would believe her and even think it was possible because of above factors.

    • I'm pretty sure Chris was present when Kay Chancellor kicked the Fosters out of her house, after Jill, thinking she'd inherited the house from Phillip, moved the whole whip-stitch tribe to Foothill Road.  Wasn't there a big scene where Kay waltzed in and tossed all of them out.    Kay Chancellor and Lorie Brooks had a couple of scenes in 1979.  It was a complicated storyline.  Kay was "dead", having been "killed" in a fire at the sanitarium.  In reality, Kay had survived of course and was staying in the Foster home with Liz.  For several weeks, Liz was the only person who knew Kay was still alive; they had Kay's funeral and everything.  Jill was married to Stuart Brooks and was trying to bilk a divorce settlement from him.  Stuart was anxious to get rid of Jill and was willing to pay a premium to get her butt out of his house.  Brock had revealed to Lorie that, in his opinion, Jill was planning to extort a settlement from Stuart and then run away with Derek Thurston, profiting financially first from Stuart and then secondly from Derek.  Not knowing Derek Thurston, Lorie wasn't sure if this account was valid or not, but she HATED Jill and wanted to be sure Jill got $0 settlement from Mr. Brooks.  Liz babbled to Kay that Stuart was in the process of writing Jill a check for $150,000 to get rid of her .  Kay Chancellor, knowing how Lorie felt about Jill, called Lorie on the phone and said, "Lorie, this is Kay Chancellor.  No, I'm not dead.  Everyone just THINKS I am.  Now, lissssen to me, Lorie. Take the check that your father has written to Jill and rip it to shreds.  Tell Jill to just GO.  She's already made plans to swindle a fortune from my husband.  But I'll stop that as well, and she will get nothing.  Ab-so-lute-ly nothing."  Lorie snatched the check away from Jill and ripped it up.  Jill left Stuart's house with nothing at all, and then Kay herself interrupted Jill's next foray -- a wedding to Derek.  Kay and Lorie were pleased that they'd stymied both of Jill's get-rich-quick schemes.  I don't recall Jennifer Brooks ever interacting with Kay.  It would've been superfluous, as they were the same prototype character -- the vain, wealthy, society matron who depended upon male companionship for validation of their fading beauty.  I expect Bill Bell thought it would be wise to keep them separated, as Kay was simply a more flamboyant version of Jennifer.
