Soap Opera Ratings: OLTL Beats GH in Two Key Areas (again!)
Well, I have to say OLTL so deserves this... it has held steady in the ratings for another week, beating GH in both Total Viewes and Women 18-34!! This is what good writing does!! OLTL gets hardly any PR -- and is at the worst time slot of the 3 and look at it go. Sorry, I love GH but they have to see that the writing is killing it. Even with Luke's intervention, it couldn't bring the numbers up! For that Thursday, despite heavy advertising, it only pulled a 1.8. OUCH.
READ all the Ratings over at Soap Opera Network.
I would also like to take a second to tell those that accuse me of helping to "kill GH" with my criticism, I have to remind you that I am always honest about the things that move me or not when it comes to soaps. I'm a LONG time viewer and know how good stories should be told. My entire website is dedicated to GH and I love every actor on there. I hope it sticks around forever. That said, a show like OLTL that is kicking ass in both ratings and storytelling, doesn't deserve it's fate. I'm not going to lie about that.
