ABC Daytime Ratings Continue Downward
For the week of July 2nd, ratings for The Chew, ABC's replacement for All My Children, slipped to 1.99 million. That's particularly bad news because that show has been drawing viewers in the 2.19 million range for a number of weeks.
The View had 3.11 million viewers, which represents a decrease of 16 % from one year ago while the CBS version, The Talk, had 2.02 million, a 7% decline, reversing an upward trend for that show.
The Revolution finally left the ABC airwaves.
This week it was replaced by Good Afternoon America. The new show on its first day, July 9th, drew 1.923 million total viewers and 359,000 women 18-49, according to Fast National Preliminary Nielsen data. That is certainly an improvement over The Revolution which was bringing in 1.23 million viewers per week, but the first day is hardly a real indication of what's to come. The one hour extension of Good Morning America will air for nine weeks until Katie with Katie Couric debuts.
