Overall, CBS Daytime had its most watched February sweep (4.35m) since 2007 and highest rated in women 25-54 (1.5/08) since 2010.

  1. Yay for the soaps. All soaps are doing great. I am surprised at Y&R given the departures. B&B has been smoking for months, loving the new characters there. The Ally and Taylor showdown will be ratings gold. CBS Daytime over all seems to be doing really well. Congrats!
