1996-97 Soap Ratings

Written by Bridger Cunningham

The City lost power and cancelled inside two seasons.  In its place, ABC created a spinoff, Port Charles, out of the GH franchise.  And NBC attempted an Aaron Spelling soap in Sunset Beach, which crested a low tide in the ratings.

Save for NBC soaps DAYS and AW, the losses continued.  Y&R dropped a half point, as B&B hit new lows.  GH and AMC slid to new lows in the 4's, and ATWT and GL held steady.  OLTL dropped a half-point, and new soaps experienced mixed fortunes.  PC managed considerable growth over its predecessor, while Beach managed record lows for debuts.
