“The View’s” 12th-season premiere week reached new highs for ABC daytime, helping the network rank at the top of the list of broadcast daytime TV ratings among female viewers 18 to 49 years old for the week of Sept. 1. The network placed first with an average 1.3 rating and 830,000 viewers in that age group.
Last week’s season opener of the talk series improved by 3% over the year-ago debut and ranks as “The View’s” second-best season premiere behind 2000-01 among women 18-49. Musical guests New Kids on the Block helped the episode reach a 1.4 rating in its key demographic, giving “The View” its most-watched episode in six weeks.
Among women 18-49, NBC come in second for the week with a 1.2 rating/761,000 viewers, followed by CBS with a 1.1 rating/722,000 viewers.
In terms of total daytime viewers, CBS topped the list, averaging 3.45 million viewers for the week. ABC followed in second with an average of 2.77 million viewers, with NBC in third with 2.55 million viewers.


  1. Those bitches on The View would not know honesty if it hit them in the face. Who the Hell are they to be talking down to Sen McCain about hitting below the belt. They do it constantly to anyone not fitting their left wing mind set. This country would be better off if someone pulled the plug on that show. Enough said.

  2. Hahahahaha! Somebody finally has the guts to question McCain on his lies and lying attack ads and Bill can’t handle it.

  3. Billis right!!! I am anxious to see the results of the PUMA boycott of “The Shrews View” in the next couple of weeks. These phoney masked morphs are not representative of American Women. God forbid! Ugly, Ugly, Ugly. Shame on them.

  4. Was nice to see Barbara Walters take her show back – it has been down the toilet for the past 2 years, actually since Meredith Vieira left the show. I have always felt that Bill Geddie was trying to get Barbara to turn the show over to him in toto. Looks like that’s not happening anymore. Nice to see EH taken down by Barbara also. Would love to have a different person in EH’s place on The View who is a right-winged conservative who can articulate her views without all the emotionalisms that EH seems to thrive on, you know EH’s tearing up cards, pouting, shrill screaming, and out of control behavior most of the time. She seems to be rabid to me.

  5. Interesting layout on your blog. I really enjoyed reading it and also I will be back to read more in the future.

  6. Definitely actually excellent web site article which has received me considering. I in no way looked at this out of your stage of look at.

  7. I generally don’t respond on sites but you have a quantity of high-quality comprehensible post.
