  1. WLS,

    Why do you think OLTL's ratings have decreased recently?

  2. SoapFan, OLTL is getting record numbers on SOAPnet so you have to add that in as well. Maybe more people are watching on SOAPnet or later on their DVR.

    ONE LIFE TO LIVE generated its biggest Summer audience on SOAPnet ever in Total Viewers and Women 18-49. Year-to-Year, ONE LIFE TO LIVE jumped by 38% in Total Viewers (503,000 vs. 364,000) and by 51% in Women 18-49 (195,000 vs. 129,000).

  3. I'm watching most of "my soaps", YR and OLTL during the evenings on SOAPnet, so I'm apart of those viewing numbers.

    I hope that Nielsen Ratings are taking account of those viewers.
