Oh Ratings ARE LOW, LOW LOWWWW



Hellsa. This will tie in nicely with my Sunday Surgery tomorrow. SON has up the ratings. Now, all soaps are down but GH? WHOA DOGGIES!!

Total Viewers
1. Y&R 4,209,000 (-55,000/-765,000) <—– new low *
2. B&B 2,864,000 (+55,000/-256,000)
3. DAYS 2,450,000 (-121,000/+112,000)
4. OLTL 2,418,000 (-298,000/-141,000)
5. GH 2,249,000 (-348,000/-322,000)


AND NEW LOW in demos 18-34!!

GH lost  over 300K viewers.HOLY smackeral.  Now, yes, all soaps did but all soaps aren't fighting for their LIVES. We know OLTL is gone-- GH needs to get up there. The writing has been half-assed to say the least. Now we have Lexi going, a bunch of newbies coming and more poised to leave. 
 Tomorrow I'll be writing and bitching as usual. I so wanted this show to turn around.

And ALL the soaps did better than "the Chew" which had an average of 1.78m viewers.

But the soaps cost more than The Chew.

I think Ethina fans took their marbles and went home. I'm not saying the discovery that Lexi is leaving and the destruction of this potential couple are the ONLY reasons for the dismal ratings, but I know they had a lot of fans and this was the last straw for them. It can't have helped...

I think its sort of funny.

GH SUCKS and it shows!!!!
Ratings don't lie.

My2Cents2 said...

I just read some really great articles over on soapnet.
(mostly about OLTL) apparently there are no 'words' for GH.

Anonymous said...

Wow even OLTL Took a nose dive. I don't mind that GH hs low ratings, prooves there aren't many Jasam fans afterall. Worst wedding & honeymoon for a supercouple ever.

JaSam has nothing to do with GH ratings. Silly!! You know that!

However if you want to tell yourself that it its, that is your business.. perhaps being dilusional is what it takes to get thru these episodes with Sonny, Carly, Shawn, Papa, pole dancing, Lucky crying, NuMaxie, NuKate, NuLady cop, NO Diane, Alexis, Monica, etc....

So whatever it takes to convince you....

My2Cents2 said...

haha I think Anon is saying that Liason fans are dillusional!!

I will agree, this show is dead because of the writing. You can't point the finger at anyone storyline. They are all horrible, with no end in sight. Its over.

lisa said...

Anon 6:46, I completely agree. Jasam honeymoon was dull as dirt. They are not interesting and I know there are people who will get upset about blaming jasam partially , but I don't care. Jasam was on alot , as well as mob (sonny , AZ , dante/lulu ). These storylines are boring and these couples don't interest me. I knew GH would be last. I started watching Days of Our Lives because they brought back vets I love and I like the storylines. GH has no respect for vets or older characters. It's ridiculous that a higher up that plays favorites is still able to dictate storylines even when fans don't want to see these stories or characters. Ratings don't lie!! "Spoiler ahead"
JFP told tv guide the who kills Lisa story will go into 2012. Imagine they will prolong that nonsense for so long, probably up until the show is cancelled!
Low ratings are deserved and will continue.

My2Cents2 said...

JaSam scenes were terrible to fans!

Its all in the writing. That is where it begins, and that is where it will end.
These actors are victims.
All of them.

Anonymous said...

Jasam is a big Yawn!!! Ridiculous that they were given so much attention on tv shows ( entertainment tonight, Etalk ). I don't watch them and they were shown most of that week.
I can't even stand Jason's character anymore. All Jason is, is good to look at. Bring on Franco to mess them up, please. GH managed to make franco boring.Get on with it!
Liz and Matt need to get some hotness or bring on nuhunky doc for liz.

"General Hospital" is the new "Guiding Light"

Good riddance fatso Jason and your posse!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Jasammers got their couple as GH tanks,just saying.

Anonymous said...

All the couples, including jasam, are dull.

My2Cents2 said...

I would like to see Liz with a new Dr.
However, GH disapoints. Can't trust anything good going forward.
I LOVE Jason, and even I can't watch him!
The end of Ethina is not why viewers stopped watching.
The viewers stopped watching when the show fired their best actors, and put what was left of the best on the back burner, or wrote them into a hole. (Carly)

Face it when all is said and done, it will have a 'Soprano' ending with Jason & Sonny sititing at the coffee warehouse!!
*******************
Why when people have nothing positive or intelligent to say hide behind 'Anonymous'?? IMO it only validates their stupidity.

Just saying.......

The show has been in a serious decline for years. I can barely make it through an episode without FF 90% of it. Most of the characters are completely unsympathetic. I used to really like Sonny and Jason and now I can't stand either. BTW Steve B. is not hot anymore.
And YES Jasam are definately part of the blame.

Anonymous said...

Boring jasam talking all the bleeping time, blah, blah,blah . Red-rimmed eye high as a kite Lucky having the same conversation over and over.Sonny and kate again and again. Carly and Shawn , Yawn...
It is not hard to see why this show is tanking.

i'd like to say i'm sad or upset over the ratings disaster but i'm not. it's more of a 'i told you so' Kristina/Ethan were never going to get off the ground it was a little too ewww--the whole rape/beating s/l turned me completely off especially when she lied and then her dumb sister got in the act.
jm and sam are boring no two ways about that--you can make them smile and act silly but it's still boring. Franco please that actor is so over exposed he isn't helping GH at all.
I do agree too many very uninteresting ppl on there right now but they were uninteresting a yr. ago
I admit right up front I'm not a JJ fan but jeez could he just stop crying and go away. That may have seemed like a good idea but IMO it hasn't worked at all unless of course you enjoy him crying and whining all the time.
Lulu-please first she's nuts and now an alcoholic Dante I'm sure will save her.
Luke is back--still not in jail-free as a bird and no one seems to care--stupid.
The one interesting thing I saw recently was EW and Maxie working together--how did that happen.
Give EW a real love interest--Matt or Ewan--I don't care which just stop with the Lucy stuff it isn't working just like Sonny and nuKate isn't working ot jaspam isn't working--give it up send sonny to his island to retire and let him take Carly --please

LindaV said...

I agree that the show is so dull right now that most of it can be fastforwarded. JaSam's honeymoon has been the dullest part and watching Franco is like watching paint dry, LOL. The current and upcoming cast changes are not popular and we have been teased with some Q action that hasn't really happened. There are no real storylines other than the revenge of Lisa. Eveything else is in dribs and drabs which is hardly enough to keep viewers coming back. I've been watching since almost day one as a kid, and this sadly is the worst yet.

HELLOOOOOOOO! :) I'm deleted the "stupid comments" on both sides.
GH Sucks because of the writing, folks,nothing to do with THIS COUPLE OR THAT COUPLE...
if the writing was there, people would tune in. Period.

OLTL lost people but not 300,000 plus like GH did.

I was trying to be fair to delete the comments that directed themselves to particular posters.

Thank you!

My2Cents2 said...

Thank YOU Karen......
Most see its the writing, and not a particular couple or actor.

Anonymous said...

Karen,
I couldn't help but notice that My2Cents original comment about stupidity was NOT removed.

Dar

My2Cents2 said...

Dar are you the Police over here?
haha

lisa said...

Dar, I agree. The original comment attacking anonymous posting and saying that that "validates their stupidity " is wrong and should be removed since that was the original posting that prompted those responses. Painting every anonymous poster with a broad paint brush and calling them stupid because thay have a difference of opinion is not right. Everyone is upset with the writing and yes, couples and characters they don't like and don't tune in for.

My2Cents2 said...

NO Lisa, the comment that you are referring is NOT attacking any one individual.

'Why when people have nothing positive or intelligent to say hide behind 'Anonymous'?? IMO it only validates their stupidity.'

Who in particular is that attacking?
Since half the posts here are signed anonoymous??

My2Cents2 said...

Of course it wasn't one sided Lisa.
Who said it was??

However, there is someone who goes by ANON here, who criticize spelling errors, and other mishaps in a derogtory fashion.
THAT I have a problem with.
And when I call them on their 'errors' they are so defensive and angry.
Don't dish it if you can't take it.

Works BOTH ways.

Lisa E said...

I'm a late comer here but anyone that coments on spelling errors and bashes the actors needs to find something else to do with themselves! I can not believe that all the hi hopes I had with the "new writers" are now in the tiolet! People have to understand that it's the writers not the actors that make the show drop in ratings! I'm not a huge Jasam fan but OMG how boring are they! I FF thru all of thier scenes. JJ is a great actor and they are not using him to his potential! All he does is cry! Again the writers! The new Kate Horrible!!! Having Olivia fall off a stripper pole-not funny! THe writers are NOT keeping their promise! Carley and Shawn umm NOT! Why bring Lisa back, what about: Bobbi,Jax,Nicolas,Monica, I would take Staveros at this point!However, this is the writers not the actors! They are fighting to keep their jobs and the writers are sending them right to the UNemploymemt line!!! What a shame, a show I have watched since I came home from school in 6th grade in 1981 is slowly going into the toilet! I am Also a huge fan of Days so I hope if GH goes off I will see some of my favorates there!

Just saying.......

This comment is ridiculous unless My2cents2 is your actual name. So it may as well be anonymous.

Lisa E said...

What is up with all the Anonymous BS?? If you have something to say UGH just say it!! If you want to remain anonymous then stop your bashing!!! It's a soap not reality! WOW!!!

My2Cents2 said...

Anon....did I hear my name??

Instead of posting your crap about me on this site, email me personlly and say what you have to say.

This is not your forum, and you don't have the right to bring your vulgar ignorant comments here. Someone works hard to maintain these boards.
Show some respect.
Look up the word if you don't understand the meaning.

It isn't a surprise that GH or even YR are low in the ratings. It is the writing. GH's writing and storlyines are boring, dull, and repetitive. YR is the same. Plus this is what happens (GH) when you don't respect or take into account what the fans want. People want romance and a lot of people still want Liason together (no I am not one of them). I would love Jarly together or Cash.
Also I know there are a lot of people who didn't want to watch the JaSam wedding. Me being one of them. I watched three of those episodes in 30 minutes. Now that's sad.
