    Y&R ratings beginning to fall again…. it’s “child killing” time!!! Who’s next?

    • Bexx

      Idiotic comment, please spare us with your buffoonery.

      • Richie.

        Yes, Derrick is right, idiotic sums it up, at least it is not the Mafia Princess shoot em up hour, oh, foolish me, I mean General Hospital.

    • Derrick

      In total viewers and households they drop but went up Women 18-49 and 18-34!
      And yes very idiotic comment!

    • PatF

      I’d much rather watch realistic soap stories, including the death of a child, than the cartoonish exploits of some of the other shows with their “islands” and water poisonings. It’s like watching Scooby Doo solve crime.
      Congrats to BB and to YR both.
      Lots of great buzz about Kristen’s story on Days as well!

  • Paul

    Nice to see Days holding steady it seems people tuned in on the Friday to watch that explosive episode with Eric finding out he was drugged by Kristen one of the best episodes ever it will be interesting to what next weeks ratings are like for days there will be a fall out from what Kristen did to Eric and it will include a lot of people Sami and EJ been on fire this week because of he did to her brother.

  • Hugo

    I don’t understand the appeal of B&B, I cannot take this show and its characters seriously, everything is so silly and contrieved.
    I hope Days has better ratings next week, they really deserve it.

  • brookie

    The headlines are so misleading. I actually thought BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL had beat out Y&R as the top show.

    • lana

      That will never happen in this day and age.

    • Philip

      Why in the world would you think that? There have been many headlines over the years that have simply stated a high in demos and etc. Did you think every time that the shows beat Y&R? You have been disappointed a lot if you did. A show can hit a high but still not overtake Y&R.

      How is it misleading when it simply states the truth. That is an almost 5 year high for them in Total Viewers.

      • brookie

        I love this site, but the headlines about ratings are always exaggerated like if a show’s ratings dip a little, the dire headlines will scream that such and such is at an all time low. The recent headline made it sound like BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL’s ratings had taken a jaw-dropping increase. I expected to see something like 3.2 and an 11 share. The increase wasn’t all that.

        • Dale

          ITA. B&B is far from the show it once was with ratings in the mid-3’s while having 8 other shows to compete with….once upon a time. I think the element of exaggeration is necessary to have viewers believe that the show is STILL awesome with the elimination of countless very loved characters and emmy-winners.
          I love this site, too. Look forward to it every week.

        • Philip

          How many shows even in prime time are getting their highest total viewers since 2009? That is what B&B did this week!!!! No other soap on the air right now has done that.

          If you will read the headline it only says Total Viewers. It says nothing about the HH number or the demos. You just jumped to a conclusion that the headline said nothing about.

          A 3.2 and 11 share would have had a headline that said something like 10 years ago.

          Good grief what in the world do you people want with headlines — all roses and flowers all the time. Lie to us that it isn’t an all time low or a high.

          No matter what SON puts in the headline some of you will never be happy.

          Maybe they should just quit doing the ratings and leave everyone high and dry.

    • Bobbie

      Same here, I like B&B instead of R&R.

  • Bexx

    While I am no fan of BB there certainly is no denying that they have a formula that works. Congrats to them!

    Looks like someone threw water on the fires at GH. lol

    • Jj

      Cranco did…haha!

  • Derrick

    Wow congrats B&B!
    Very proud of you!

  • Dale

    Highest since 2009? Hmmm. Half the soaps to compete with and how many hashtags used for upping the ratings? While the claim is the show is soaring, a trip to the message boards shows something quite different. I guess only the calculators know the real story, because I’m not convinced these are ”true” ratings. Neilson has been known to ”cross the line” In other countries…..

    • Philip

      Have you ever stopped to think about the millions of people that don’t visit soap opera message boards? But I guess that would require you to actually think.

      People on soap opera message boards are only a fraction of the people who actually watch soaps.

    • melly

      ITA I don’t believe the increase

    • PatF

      So I bet that if Days or GH suddenly soared in the ratings that a lot of people on here would believe them.

  • Mel

    Go B&B! These are very well deserved ratings. The show has been on fire for awhile now. Can’t wait to see the fallout now that both Brooke and Katie know the truth about $Bill!

    • Melly

      Sorry but B&B outright SUCKS right now! I don’t know how the ratings are going up when the writing is terrible and the show is focused on The Logans. That’s no shade. Almost all my online friends have stop watching the Bold and the Beautiful and don’t want to come back…ever.

      • Barbara Crews

        It hot now!! I start back watching it.

  • SoapFansTogether

    Here’s another headline:


    See SON Ratings Archive.

    Congrats to all our soaps!

  • GHFan

    Bexx is a mouthy little slut who should really put a cork in it already and disappear from this comment board.

  • DAYSFan

    DAYS has been on fire but I refuse to watch it now that Kristen is gone. I also cannot accept people trashing her, like nobody’s ever raped anyone on a soap! Puh-leeze, get over it! Kristen should get back ASAP.
