Okay peeps, as many of you know, Luke, Jillian, Regan and I were in the Concrete Jungle Where Dreams Are Made Of the week of January 24-28, 2011, appearing on The Morning Jolt With Larry Flick at Sirius XM, so I didn't see the soaps. I was too busy dodging falling icycles, dancing like a fool with the peeps behind the web soap Empire and meeting Real Housewives of Beverly Hills! So anyhoo their won't be any ranting or raving this week, just the ratings, (Source: Soap Opera Network).

Over at ABC Daytime, it was a bad week. While General Hospital went up 7,000 total viewers and held steady in households, the soap went down one-tenth of a point among women 18-49. GH also went down one-tenth of a point among women 18-34, tying their all-time lowest rating in that demo. All My Children lost 79,000 total viewers over the previous week.

OLTL went down one-tenth of a point among women 18-49, yet held steady among women 18-34. Now it's your turn to give rants and raves for the week of Jan. 24-28. Tell us what we missed and why it helped or hurt your fave soap's numbers in the comments!
