It looks like 2016 is off to a good start for the daytime industry, with all four network soaps up in the ratings.

If January is any indication of the months to come, then 2016 is going to be quite a year for soap operas.

The ratings for the week of January 18 through January 22 show that all four soaps not only gained viewers but are also ahead of their total viewer numbers from this time last year.

ABC's General Hospital pulled in the most new viewers, adding 116,000 for the week that had Lulu (Emme Rylan) rescuing Valerie (Brytni Sarpy) from a fire, and Robert (Tristan Rogers) and Anna (Finola Hughes) working together to find Carlos (Jeffrey Vincent Parise). In total, GH managed to pull in 3,131,000 viewers.

NBC's Days of our Lives also had a strong week with an additional 85,000 viewers who tuned in to see Hope (Kristian Alfonso) confessing to murder, and John (Drake Hogestyn) uncovering the truth about his history. In total, DAYS was able to snag an audience of 2,872,000 for the week.

CBS' The Young and the Restless pulled in an additional 39,000 viewers, for a grand total of 5,308,000. Its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful, gained 65,000 for a grand total of 4,063,000.
