Once upon a time, there were lots of soap operas on the networks’ daytime schedules. Most were cancelled over the years and only four remain — The Bold and the Beautiful (CBS), Days of Our Lives (NBC), General Hospital (ABC), and The Young and the Restless (CBS).

Note: Each network measures its own programming’s success separately. Still, it’s fun to see how the four remaining soap operas rank against each other.
