More Growth for General Hospital on ABC

November 26, 2012 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 7 Comments


Based on the Live Plus Same Day data from Nielsen for the week of November 12, 50 year-old daytime serial General Hospital has settled in well at 2 p.m. ET with a rise of 18 percent in total viewers (2.37 to 2.81 million). A good portion of that growth stemmed from the significant 55 percent increase among women 18-34 (177,000 to 275,000), which was a two year high. Results among women 18-49 (697,000) and women 25-54 (863,000), meanwhile, were up by 10 percent and three percent, respectively.

Compared to year-ago time period occupant One Life to Live, General Hospital increased by six percent in total viewers and as much as 30 percent among women 18-34.

    If I’m reading this wrong, I apologize. While the year-to-years for GH can’t be questioned-GH in total held steady from last week, true?

    • Rob

      Your questions are so ridiculous that even Marc doesn’t want to answer them.

      • Troy Turner

        Why, oh why do you even bother-you know that we soapers are on the right side of the argument here. I was asking Marc a legitimate question.

  • Ronnie


    Do you have GH and daytime talk show ratings for the week of November 5th? For November 12, GH beat the The View , Chew, and Talk in the demos. I’m interested in seeing how GH did for November 5.

    • Marc Berman

      It was similar Ronnie. GH is having a very good season at 2 p.m. ET.

    • Troy Turner


      To back up what Marc said, GH had a VERY slight decrease-17,000-over 11/5. But, all in all-GH has settled in nicely to the point where The Chew could very well be in trouble.
