    People said they would quit watching when Victoria was killed off and then they said they’d quit watching when Phyllis left, BUT Y&R’s ratings are higher than they’ve been in 4 years. This scandal will pass, I’m not picking sides, but I watch in for well written storylines like the Jack being Summer’s dad, but I agree I get disappointed in the writing as well like All of a sudden Jack really isn’t Summer’s dad…totally ruined the great drama and momentum that they had just built. Glad CBS renewed Y&R and soap fans should be glad that they stand by their soaps unlike ABC!i!
