    Hope the soaps keep rising…

  • moshane58

    Seen every soap rating but GH.. Where is GH?

  • PatF

    YR averaging over 5.1 mil viewers for the QUARTER is actually pretty huge. The negative behind the scenes antics don’t matter much to the average viewers who mostly don’t read blogs or daytime sites.

    Congrats to CBS, but they need to reign in Phelps ASAP.

  • robert

    With all the negativity towards Y&R, it still brings in big ratings. The soap has improved over the past couple of weeks.

  • Ginger Eliz

    Jill Farren Phelps is doing just FINE on Y&R! Go Jill!!!!

  • MBmomof3

    WOW! Impressive gains. Congrats to all involved.

  • Mike

    I bet since they already have the ratings for the week of Christmas (23rd-27th) — my bet is that we will not see the ratings for the week of the 16th to 20th.

    They will probably just release last week since they are 2 weeks behind.

    CBS is on a roll………..Go Y&R which is VERY impressive and B&B!

  • Kelby

    Y&R is a mess. I can not watch any part of this show anymore. I have felt this way for years now. Every character and story is ruined. JFP stinks, MAB stunk, the head honchos before that blew. Y&R has not been outstanding since 1997. It has all been downhill since then. The talent that they do have, they do not use like they should and on top of that, there is an a.s load of new faces/recasts, they are writing off good actors/characters and Nikki has a long lost son….omg….where is my kit kat. There is nothing to bring me back. Plot point to plot point. Character means nothing to this show anymore. Far cry from what it use to be.
