The Chew Watch: ABC Daytime Ratings
The Revolution, now in its last months, drew 1.43 million viewers, also up from 1.16 million. That's surprising since ABC has tossed The Revolution to the trash heap. But in the 2 pm time slot, ABC's audience has fallen 44 percent from a year ago when One Life to Live was on. What were they thinking?
ABC's most popular daytime show by far is The View which drew 3.37 million viewers. It's competitor (though not head to head), The Talk on CBS, had the same number of viewers as the previous week, 2.16 million.
Here are the soap ratings for the week of 4/23:
1. Young &Restless 4,445,000 (+141,000 for the week)
2. Bold & Beautiful 3,038,000 (+56,000 for the week)
3. Days of Our Lives 2,383,000 (+7,000 for the week)
4. General Hospital 2,355,000 (+127,000 for the week)
