ABC Daytime's lowest rated-yet-highest in quality soap opera One Life to Live, added 34,000 total viewers for the week of Feb. 23-27. OLTL, which stayed the same in households week-to-week with a 2.0, was the only soap to add viewers, according to Soap Opera Network. Meanwhile, the other best soap on the dial, CBS's The Young and the Restless, lost 177,000 viewers and dropped to down 2 points to a 3.8 in households. Y&R's loss didn't help sister soap The Bold and the Beautiful, which lost 206,000 viewers, and dropped to a 2.5 in households. As for the struggling Guiding Light, things weren't so bad, considering the six figure losses felt by the Bell soaps, but the old girl did lose 98,000 viewers to drop to a 1.6. See below for the rest of the ratings.
