The same issue of DAYTIME TV has an article about the rising ratings of game shows and it cites these numbers...

for the 2 weeks ending January 28, 1972

(for all daytime show, not just soaps)
#1 - Hollywood Squares (11.5)
#1 - General Hospital (11.5)
----- Newlywed Game (11.1)
----- Jeopardy (9.9)
#7 - Sale of the Century
#10 - Let's Make a Deal (9.5)
#10 - Dating Game (9.5)
#10 - Another World (9.5)

The article also mentions ATWT being #1 for 11 straight years until it was bumped from the #1 spot in November 1971, first by Days of our Lives and then by General Hospital.
