Ok I want to start off with the good & happy news this week...The Young And The Restless is the only daytime drama this year to see increases in total viewers 3 weeks in a row. They saw an increase of +242,000 more viewers compared ot the previous week. Well done! Days Of Our Lives was the only other soap this week to see a bump in the ratings as they had +31,000 more viewers compared to the previous week.

Now onto the bad news....the ABC soaps were hit hard with BIG losses. General Hospital has now hit an all-time lowest rating ever of a 2.0 and to add insult to ingury, they also hit all-time lows in the all imporatant 18-49 demo group too! Not good times for the mob-friendly soap opera. All My Children saw a loss of -284,000 viewers compared to the previous week but not to be outdone, One Life To Live saw the biggest loss of all of the soaps with -294,000 total viewers tuning out compared to the previous week. 

The other CBS soaps weren't doing as well either with Guiding Light having a big loss of -74,000 viewers compared to the previous week. Let's hope these low ratings are only because of the summer season less-than-dramatic storylines.
