What was going on with AMC at this point and why were they starting to tumble? Assuming the increased competition in some markets from a now very strong Y&R couldn't have helped. 

 

I was just about to chime in, these weekly numbers show me that All My Children was not always a solid No. 3 during this time period as I had long thought.

Ooh look at Y&R at 9's, ATWT & DAYS in the 8's, and AW in the 6's...  Meanwhile, Capitol down in the 4's definitely earns a cancellation for a CBS soap... 

 

Lol it’s like a good chunk of CBS viewers changed the channel of 30 

mins!

Week ending 1/2/1987

GH 9.3

DOOL 8.9

ATWT 7.7

GL 6.4

AW 6.2

CAP 5.6

SB 5.2

LOV 4.6

RH 3.3

 

SB at 5.2! I wonder what their highest rating was throughout their run. I still wonder how they might have done with DOOL as their lead-in instead of AW (as much as I also loved AW).

AMC did start to fade after Jacqueline Babbin had departed as EP.  IIRC, by the time Agnes Nixon had returned as HW in '90, the show had slipped as far as sixth in the ratings.

You’ll see. And did SB ever beat AW in the ratings?
