  • Cartini Killed My Show

    So glad people are finally realizing Sabrina Hospital is a hot mess!

  • pau

    wow what happened this week on Y&R ?! They did great, kudos.

  • Bex

    Nice job Y&R! I’m enjoying the build up to sweeps, and I hope this week is a great one. What happened to GH on Thursday? Was their some sort of preemption?

    • David

      GH in many markets on the east coast had a pre-emption on Thursday which is most likely the reason for the drop on Thursday. Thus also affecting the entire weeks numbers bringing them down

      • Bex

        Seems like normal numbers for GH, right between the 1.9-2.2 range. If ABC is happy, wonderful.

  • Philip

    Way to go Y&R. So loving my show.

  • robert

    Y&R and Days doing well. Congrats.

  • King

    Last year Y&R ratings were a disaster (that’s why MAB got fired after all) … now the ratings are exact the same and everyone says Y&R is doing great, the ratings are great. Can someone please make me understand?

    • pau

      They did great because they improve from their loss in viewers, that’s all and to be up in ratings is just great for the soap, simple as that..Personally i find Y&R quite boring but i can’t deny that their ratings are better than last year.

    GH is a disaster. Frank and Ron are driving this show right off a cliff. The cast is bloated to the point where it’s difficult to follow each storyline and what exactly each character is doing on a daily basis. And it’s not bloated in a good way. It’s filled with characters who are really meaningless to the show at this point: Sabrina, Britt, Spinelli, Duke, Shawn, Felix, Maxie, Ellie, Olivia, even Dante and Lulu are boring as hell. All Frank and Ron do is recycle the same old story lines over and over and over again from previous GH stories as well as stories they did on OLTL. And of course now we have the addition of the OLTL three who they just can’t seem to let go. Todd (RH), John (ME), and to a lesser extend Starr (KA) belong on that show, not playing some “new” characters on GH. I just can’t wait to see how Frank and Ron explain these three and how they are going to make us care about three “new” characters on the canvas, on top of the huge number of already boring and unnecessary characters. And really, Carly and AJ sleeping together? It’s just ridiculous. It seems these two are running out of ideas. Even though JFP was also a disaster on GH, at least her story lines were somewhat more focused and slightly more based in reality. GH goes from vampires to ice princesses to three new characters who’s actors have already been on the show now supposedly have no connection etc etc etc. It gets a little ridiculous and I’m not surprised GH ratings are declining. FV and RC need to get a grip on the show and stop with the casting stunts and campy nonsense that just degrades the show.

      • David

        Comments like these always amaze me. The show has had such a variety of characters. The old complaint before was that the show was too focused on one character Now suddenly its too many characters. I also notice that some people just don’t like certain characters being on The show does a great job in featuring different storylines that they are more spread out. Some haters though will never be happy. The show is coming off a great 50th anniversary that was greatly enjoyed by the majority. Numbers were bound to drop a little. That plus not to mention preemptions. Numbers were still up from one year ago not like these drps were that huge. But some people will always find reason to complain about GH

        • Bex

          You need to stop calling people ‘haters’ simply because they have a difference of opinion. The OP comment didn’t seem like one that should be classified as an ‘hater’ comment, seems like they summed up the show through their own eyes, it’s fair to disagree.

  • PatF

    Y and R was losing viewers over both LML and MAB’s tenure. The ratings are much more stable, and the bleeding has stopped for now.
    Josh’s writing returns the show more to its slower, traditional writing style that most LONG term Y and R viewers (like myself) SEEM to prefer. If he’d focus more on the core characters I’d be a happy camper.

  • Are the ratings going to include how OLTL and AMC are doing now that they’re back-ish?

    • Philip

      No because Hulu does not pay Nielsen to track their viewers. Unless Hulu or TOLN release the numbers then we will never know what OLTL or AMC are getting. Right now no one tracks the number of viewers on the services like Hulu, Netflix, etc. except for the companies themselves.

  • I can honestly say good for Y&R when it comes to the ratings & the ratings for GH are greatly deserved. Although Y&R do have their moments of where I’m kind of bored with some scenes and where I wish that they would go with the juicier storyline of Dylan/Sharon because 1. they have more chemistry than Dylan and Avery 2. the Dylan/Avery storyline needs to die a quick death & 3. how pissed off would Chelsea be that the man she is faking as her baby’s father is now with Sharon when one of the reason she is lying to Adam about the baby is because of Adam’s interest in Sharon, it’s still good television for ADULTS. I don’t feel like when I’m watching Y&R that my intelligence is being insulted on a daily basis like it does when I’m watching GH. Every storyline on GH seem to me that it was pulled out of every 90s teen flick that existed. The fact that the dialogue consist of a woman saying relish at least 8 times in the first 30 seconds of her scene is ridiculous. The fact that two people are fighting over a money making relish with no explanation on why if the relish was such a money maker, why was it pulled off the shelf in the first place. While alright at first, the fact that two 40+ year old people are bickering like teenagers in every scene that Carly and AJ share. I’m seriously anticipating any moment in one of their scenes one of them are going to actually say “I know you are but what am I?” We have Connie just walking around free with no explanation on how she got away with kidnapping Johnny & hitting Ellie without repercussion. We have people who have not been around each other from anywhere of 2 to 20 years still pining over these people even though we have watched over the years one part of the ‘relationship’ moving on to the point where the other part isn’t even a thought. And above all we have a established character (Patrick) reduced to not being able to make a move unless two non-established character (Sabrina &Felix) gives their approval on what he does even though he hasn’t even been on a date with Sabrina. I would love more adult dialogue on GH. I would love more consistent writing in the storylines. I would love the storylines to actually have a true well thought out beginning, middle, & end. And that’s not what I’m getting with GH, but it is what I’m getting with Y&R.

    • pau

      when you sum it up like that..GH is/seems totally all over the place..lol

      • That’s because it is. It’s too many storylines going on that not much quality is being put into it. Lots of quantity when it comes to GH, but quality is very much lacking.
