Days of Our Lives and General Hospital Grab Younger Eyeballs

Younger women can't seem to get enough of diabolical, embryo-snatching physicians and/or a trio of multigenerational Midwestern women attempting to drown a sociopath in a lake. According to a new report from Variety, both General Hospital and Days of Our Lives have seen spikes among younger female viewers over the previous year!  

From the article:

“General Hospital,” for example, has grown from last year by 9% in total viewership (to 3.32 million) but it’s also up by 19% in women 25-54 and by 11% among those 12-34, according to Nielsen. As a result, its median age of 55.5 for the current season is down from 56.1 a year ago.

“Days of Our Lives” is up 10% (to about 3 million viewers), but its biggest gains are among females 12-34; its median age of 57.8 is nearly one full year lower than last year.
