They continue to fall. The ratings, that is, for the ABC soap substitutes, The Chew and The Revolution, now seen at 1 pm and 2 pm daily.
Last week, the week of January 30th, The Revolution dipped to 1.44 million viewers from 1.53 million the previous week, according to the latest Nielsen numbers.. That represents half the audience of One Life to Live last year at this time. The numbers are also down 50% in the three key demographics - women 25-54, women 18-49 and women 18-34. The Revolution is also trailing The Talk on CBS, which isn't exactly a blockbuster itself.
The Chew is doing slightly better. It had 2.23 million viewers last week, from 2.34 million the week before last. All My Children had 2.65 million viewers in the final days of January last year.
We'll continue to keep you posted, since we've seen from the many comments posted that our readers are interested in this week-to-week race that is now slowing to a crawl.
