Also based on the Live Plus Same Day results for the week of November 12, The View on ABC is the top draw in network daytime talk, as always. But The Chew, also on ABC, and The Talk on CBS have narrowed the gap in total viewers with 3.36 million for ABC (-14 percent from one year earlier), 2.55 million for The Chew (+ 7) and 2.40 million for The Talk (+15). One year earlier, The View bested No. 2 The Chew by a more extensive 1.55 million viewers. And, comparably, The Talk had its largest audience since the week of June 25.

Demographically, The View was down and The Chew and The Talk were close to year-ago levels as follows:

-Women 25-54:
The View (ABC): 785,000 (-23 percent), The Chew (ABC): 621,000 (-11), The Talk (CBS): 640,000 (+ 2)

-Women 18-49:

The View (ABC): 619,000 (-22), The Chew (ABC): 482,000 (- 7), The Talk (CBS): 470,000 (- 2)

-Women 18-34:
The View (ABC): 247,000 (+ 3), The Chew (ABC): 194,000 (+ 7), The Talk (CBS): 142,000 (- 2)

    You wonder how many Gh fans that don’t watch The Chew is ounted since they run it right into to GH.Turn ABC on exactly 1 pm my time and everyday there it is the end of The Chew.Funny GH is over 3 minutes before the next show.The Chew is the only show that doesn’t have advertisement at the end of the show.At 1 pm exactly I expect to see gh not the stupid Chew.They give GH 58 minutes.Give the Chew 60 minutes and 20 seconds.

      Moshane58, you really need to grow up and get over yourself already.

      AMC overlapped on OLTL. The Chew overlapped on The Revolution.

      The ABC show at 1:00pm always overlaps on the ABC show at 2:00pm. It’s just the way it’s been over the last 10 years. This has absolutely nothing to do about a preferred treatment of talk shows over soap operas .

        That’s a bunch of BS, and you know it. You’re the one that needs to get over yourself, and to quit pushing an anti-soap agenda…

          You do realize that you’re not exactly someone that any normal person with an IQ of over 30 would take seriously, do you.

          Because 30 is about what is your IQ is.

  • Troy Turner

    While The Chew has shown growth, the success of GH has The Chew exposed as the weak link in the ABC Daytime lineup. Just a trend to follow…

    • Rob

      Doesn’t matter though because The Chew costs less to produce than GH meaning that its future is safer than GH.

      I had my doubt at first. But you have now confirmed what I always thought about you. Your IQ is really 30 after all. And I’m being generous by giving you such a high number. (You probably don’t know how to count that high anyway).

      • Troy Turner

        You just HAD to go there, didn’t you. FYI, I’m a college graduate. The campaign to take down The Chew is going just fine, thank you very much. The numbers don’t lie-The Chew will be cancelled long before GH-you can take that to the bank.

        By the way-you can quit your anti-soap agenda at anytime-we’d all appreciate it

    • Rob

      BTW, how is the quest to take down The Chew going?
