    what happened to Days ?! I don’t get it..this week in question was just more interesting than the week before and then big drop..what happened ?

  • Philip

    Glad to see Y&R and B&B have a good week.

  • Bexx

    Whoa! Nice turn around for Y&R, but what happened on Monday, has the new writer material aired yet?

  • Derrick

    Happy for Y&R and B&B!
    What happened to DAYS?

  • robert

    Days needs more younger actors

  • Yoryla

    WTH! I don’t get these ratings once again at ALL! Y&R and B&B are the sh*ttiest soaps on air out ll the four!!! DAYS is wonderful, amazing, and GH has been firing on ALL cylinders this month! This was the week of Robin, the Maxie reveal, et al! How can the ratings NOT be dramatically UP???? The only options are that htese ratings are either rigged or mean absolutely nothing. Every time the right soaps increase, the next week they just fall back again! So basically all of this amounts to +/- 0 = absolutely nothing!!! I want to see some BIG, PERMANENT changes, like GH taking over B&B’s number 2 spot!!!! Not this childish little dribel! There is no point in even following these ratings if there never going to change permanently!!! People, if you are not happy with your soap then SWITCH to another!!!!! Do not watch out of stupid loyalty, this is not supposed to feel like a job, you’re supposed to be entertained by watching these!!!! CHANGES, QUICK!!!

    • Bexx

      You make zero sense, random nobody.

      • Yoryla

        Don’t talk to me that way, b*tch….

      • Harlee

        Now that was uncalled for…be nice Yoryla is a great poster and read many of posts, he’s just excited because DOOL as been excellent and Yo we disagree about BB is pure fire for some of us…

        Letting off steam…

    • Mike

      But what about the people that just watch GH and Days out of loyalty and not because they are enjoying it. Because there are many that post on the message boards that say they just watch because they always have.

      If they quit then GH and Days go back behind again.

      Each soap has many fans who watch out of loyalty. No it’s not their job to jump from one soap to another. It’s not their job to even watch the soap they are loyal too. They watch it because they want to or enjoy it.

      Soaps have been going up and down for years. Look at the ratings. Many times when soaps have a big increase in the last few years they usually fall back down within a week or two. Even Y&R and B&B gain and lose.

      But that trend even goes back to the 70s. I have looked at ratings from back then and there were weeks when a show like Another World might be 5 or 6 and suddenly jump to #2 for a week or two and then back down. During those years it was always As The World Turns that was #1.

      It’s just the nature of soap fans.

  • Harlee

    I’m a loyal CBSer but I so disagree on YR, YR has been ugly to watch, I’m not watching “child killer show-killer” Jill Faren-Phelps and her nonsense and Josh’s lack of stellar writing, Josh has been solid but not amazing and YR is complete mess…

    Please Sony, fix it..

    BB is the best soap on the air! LOVE LOVE BB right now!

  • PatF

    Glad for YR.
    Even though I absolutely despise Phelps and all the changes she’s made to the show, I know she’ll eventually be gone.
    I’m happy for the cast of this stellar soap. They’ve carried the show for over 7 years thru all the crap that’s been thrown at them.
    Any of its current success has NOTHING to do with Phelps.
    So congrats YR, BB and CBS. I hope these shows can continue to be #1/2 for years to come.

  • Richie

    Yoryla, you are just a miserable sore loser, when your shows are up, it’s GREAT, when CBS shows are up, it’s rigged. Get a life, or just STOP watching CBS shows, as you have advised others to do regarding GH & DOOL when they disagree…

  • MariaL

    I think The Bold and Beautiful is making a huge Mistake with putting Rick Forrester with Caroline Spencer. I think it was edgier with Rick and Mia. It’s a whole new world CBS a black woman and a white Rich man can be together on T.V. and in real life!!!! Why does it always have to be the spoiled rich white girl ALL the time. I have watched since you first came on air, but this skid is not interesting (BORING) Put him back with Mia not that slutty, back stabbing,scheming Caroline….ugh!
