Soap Opera Ratings: ‘Days Of Our Lives’ Final Week On NBC… in Chart Form!
A look at the ratings for the final week of Days Of Our Lives on NBC. Plus, how the soap held up against General Hospital on ABC and CBS’s Young And The Restless and Bold And The Beautiful.
DAYS added viewers in its final week on NBC
Despite the unceremonious interruption from the death of a monarch, DAYS attracted biggest audience in nearly three months as 1.679 million watching its final week on NBC. This marked an uptick of six percent from the previous week, with an additional 93,000 viewers tuning in.
GH dipped by just 1,000 viewers, beat last year
General Hospital aired a brand new episode on Labor Day instead of an encore for the first in nearly two-decades. The move didn’t jolt the soap’s numbers, but it didn’t hurt it. GH pulled in 2.05 million viewers, nearly identical to the 2.051 million viewers who tuned in the previous week.
B&B hit its lowest numbers since January 2021
Bold and The Beautiful had a pretty rough week with 2.735 million viewers tuning, marking the soap’s smallest audience in 20-months. The half-hour CBS soap lost 100,000 viewers from the previous week. Even more alarming, B&B lost 224,000 viewers, down roughly 8 percent, from the same week last year.
Y&R was up from last week, down from last year
Young and The Restless joined DAYS as the only soap to add viewers week-to-week, adding 40,000 viewers for a 3.242 million average. The good news stopped there, as Y&R was down 170,000 viewers from last year’s 3.412 million.Copy code snippet
