ABC Daytime Ratings Report: The View, The Chew
During the week of May 29th, The View had 3.22 million viewers, which is 3% fewer than a year ago. Meanwhile, its competitor (though not in the same time slot), The Talk on CBS, had 10% more viewers than last year, 1.97 million, and a great deal more among women 18-49, the key demographic for daytime.
As for The Chew, it had 2.07 million viewers, down from 2.18 the previous week. It's worth noting that Laura Wright, Carly on General Hospital, was a guest on The Chew on May 31st, during the week in question, which could have contributed to the ratings. If she hadn't been on, who knows?
