It was great seeing GH at #1 for the 18-34 groups. Lately they have been on fire. A few months ago GH was in last place but they made some changes to SLís bought back vets and used them in a sensible way and they are turning their ratings around given they donít tape 4 months in advance!

:rockon: Fresh off its most watched season if five years, GENERAL HOSPITAL hit a five-month high in total viewers for the week of September 16-20, 2013 :rockon:

They said it was a good week for DAYS! How can they say that when DAYS is still in last place and dailies are 1.8, 1.9, and one 2.0! What is so funny is the 2.0 came on the day Stefano put EJ in his place. Greg Meng claiming they are telling a story in 3 weeks instead of 6 months is a dream or he has Pinocchio syndrome. Iím beyond caring about DAYS anymore these ridiculous SLís have been going on for at least a year now with no change in sight!

The other 3 soaps have made it over that dreadful 1.? hump!

Somebody explain to me how Days got a 1.9 on Friday when they had more viewers than GH & GH pulled a 2.0.

I'm sure it all makes sense to those who follow all the ratings hubbub.

Glad Wednesday got good ratings. The showdown between EJ & Stefano was the best of that week.

I'm sure the reason for the "good week for Days" language is because of the year-over-year increase in the key 18-49 demo. The majority of the year-over-year ratings increase for other soaps has been outside the key demo, but for Days the vast majority of their year-over-year increase has been inside the key demo. And the 18-49 demo is what they care about because it sets advertising rates. So even though the other soaps are still getting a better percentage of their timeslot, Days is trending up the most in the rating that matters to the show.

The ratings share is based on timeslots, not just raw viewer numbers, so Days is obviously facing stiffer competition that GH in some areas.

IDK Days isn't making any real gains, I expected this week to have more of a favorable impact on the ratings as the Sami story was finally moving. They seem to be stagnant for the most part, and their more crucial time is quickly approaching. Hey at least they didn't have a loss in total viewers or demos....

GH is totally on fire. I can't wait for this week, and look at that year to year comparison....GH now reminds of the gains Days made in 2009....hoping they don't fall as sharply as Days did two years later....

Days goes up against GH here, not sure what's on CBS then.

Thanks for the explanation, Tom.

Days lost a lot of the 18-49 demo the past few years.

Days was at,
901K, Sept 14-18, 2009
712K, Sept 13-17, 2010
581K, Sept 12-16, 2011
504K, Sept 10-14, 2012


The fact that they're back in the 600K range is good. As a comparison, B&B was at 676K that same week in 2009. Y&R and GH have both gone down similarly to Days though at 1,118K and 868K respectively in 2009.

The total number of viewers isn't always reciprocal to the ratings. The ratings take into account people aged 18-49. What these numbers tell us is the following: while more people of all ages watched on Friday, more people aged 18-49 watched on Wednesday than of Friday.

Wow! GH is so close to getting in the 3,000,000's! That's awesome. I bet when Robin returns they will make it. Also the baby reveal is going to be amazing-I can't wait for that! I'm so glad GH is so good right now.

I think DAYS ratings are pretty good considering how freakin slow the stories are right now. I think they will go up much more once November sweeps really starts and the stories hit their climaxes.

In our area, Days is up against the new show, The Test, in the 1:00-2:00 time slot on ABC and the last half hour of Y and R and B and B on CBS. Hard to say how many viewers The Test is drawing... it's another reality type talk show... much like all the others.

Same here, except my ABC is still showing The Chew in the 1-2 slot.

I know this has been stated before but I would think that someone with clout in the Soap industry would lobby the three networks to stagger the times they air the 4 remaining soaps. And in turn the networks should require that their affiliates carry these shows at prescribed times. (Don't they do this with primetime?)

Even in this age of Soap Net (which I no longer have, thank you Comcast), DVRs and on-line viewing, why should these shows have to compete for my viewership? In my area, I couldn't watch both Days and Y&R without DVRing one of them.
