The Chew Watch: ABC Daytime Ratings for Week of May 14

ABC continues to do poorly in the daytime ratings race, except for its powerhouse, The View.

During the week of May 14,there were 2.13 million viewers for The Chew, a slight rise from the previous week (2.09 million), but basically flat.  Last year at this time,  All My Children had 2.51 million viewers, 15% more than The Chew is getting now in the 1 pm time slot.

At 2 pm, The Talk on CBS is rolling right over the lack of competition on ABC.  Ratings for The Talk went up 12% in total viewers.  The show drew 2.31 people.  Canceled show, The Revolution, had just 1.33 million viewers, 51% fewer than  One Life to Live one year earlier and a slight rise from the previous week.

As noted, The View is the all time winner with 3.60 million viewers and a big bump on Tuesday's show when President Obama was a guest (4.7 million).

Here are the soap ratings for that week:

1. Young and Restless 4.25 million viewers (-64,000 from previous week)
2. Bold & Beautiful 3.08 million (+20,000 from previous week)
3. Days of Our Lives 2.35 million (-76,000 from previous week)
4. General Hospital 2.33 million (-103,000 from previous week)
