Well folks, I'm not quite sure what Guiding Light needs to do to move up a spot because they had a pretty good week despite being stuck at a 1.5 rating. They saw an increase of 104,000 more viewers compared to the previous week. Actually, all of the CBS soaps and the remaining NBC soap did well in total viewership this week.
As the World Turns, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Days of Our Lives saw nice gains in total viewership compared to the previous week (97,000, 114,000, and 248,000 respectively). But it was The Young and the Restless that moved up the most by gaining 432,000 more viewers compared to the previous week...this pulled them up from a 3.5 rating to a 3.7. Way to go guys!

The ABC soaps however were not as fortunate. Each soap lost total viewers with One Life To Live and All My Children tying their lowest rating ever. General Hospital lost 151,000 more viewers compared to the previous week. But not to be outdone...All My Children lost the most viewers with 187,000 viewers tuning out. Ouch!
