Daytime TV Ratings: How Many People Are Watching The Soaps Versus Last Year

There’s been no shortage of buzz surrounding General Hospital lately. If the show isn’t making noise for its Daytime Emmy win for Outstanding Drama in December, then it’s drumming up excitement for the return of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan this year, as well as the return of Eden McCoy from a brief hiatus, and how it’s bringing on new showrunners to keep the drama hopping in Port Charles. But the linear ratings tell a slightly different story, if not a depressing one — especially for those who are rooting for the survival of broadcast television. According to season-to-date ratings versus one year ago, GH is down 9% among total viewers (2.2M vs. 2.4M) and down 9% in women 18+ (1.6M vs. 1.8M).
