Both The Chew and The Revolution on ABC Lose More Steam

The situation has worsened for recent ABC daytime entries The Chew and The Revolution. Based on the Live Plus Same Day ratings from Nielsen for the week of March 19, The Chew dipped to 2.04 million viewers, which trailed year-ago occupant All My Children by 230,000 viewers (or 14 percent). Key female demo erosion for the week was as high as 25 percent among women 18-49 and women 25-54. The Revolution, meanwhile, sunk to another series low…1.32 million viewers. And that was off from former mainstay One Life to Life by 1.19 million viewers (or 47 percent) and as high as 60 percent among women 18-34.

Word of caution to ABC: Do not make the same mistake with General Hospital.

Here is The Chew and The Revolution versus All My Children and One Life to Live:

All My Children – Week of 3/21/11
Viewers: 2.37 million, Women 25-54: 1.1 rating/ 7 share, Women 18-49: 0.8/ 5, Women 18-34: 0.4/ 3
