WEEKLY NIELSEN RATINGS CHARTS NOW COMPLETE FROM 1989-PRESENT!

 

"Days" fans now have access to every week of household Nielsen ratings since late 1989, as well as the women's 18-49 demo ratings for almost every week (16 weeks missing) since 1994. Data comes from the Soap Opera Weekly charts from 1989-2012 and more recent data from Soap Opera Network.

@JAS0N47 As a numbers nerd that I am, this is quite impressive. Thank you! 

 

P.S. I also appreciate checking out the whole prime time lineup when DAYS did their prime time specials before the Soap Awards (which turned out pretty good numbers) 

 

You're welcome. Been meaning to get these posted for years. Finally had time to scan them all in, so now it's on to the posting stage!

Thank you for this Jason! I remember in 1995 AMC lost quite a bit of ground to DAYS overall, but didn’t realize how  strong AMC was in 18-49. AMC was #1 in demos for most of the year.

While I'm no fan of hers, as I browsed through the ratings/demos from '93 to '96 I had to think "They shouldn't have fired McTavish".

Well I think her dismissal had more to do with creative differences than ratings if I recall. I’ve always heard Susan Lucci had a part in that. 

 

The mistake was they hired her back, twice. I think her legacy wouldn’t be viewed with such hatred if she didn’t get a second and third chance. Her 1992-1995 stint overall was quite good, that’s what happens when you have a strong EP in FMB and Agnes Nixon still very much in a position of creative control.
