With the summer season right around the corner, CBS’ “” is preparing for the heat with the power of feeling. In a newly released promo, the soap uses the word “feel” to get viewers interested in the stories taking place during the summer months. “Feel the rush. Feel the emotion. Feel the heat. It’s your feel good show of the summer,” text from the promo states, while reminding fans that it has been the #1 daytime soap opera for 25 years in the all important Nielsen ratings (households and total viewers only).

    If YR wants to bring back viewers the summer promo should be WE FIRED JILL FARREN PHELPS! Forget MM or any other estranged cast members. just fire JFP and viewers will come home.

      Online viewers are only a small portion of the audience. Many of the viewers who watch Y&R probably don’t even know who Phelps is. Sony has got to hire someone who knows Y&R and can move it back to the things that were it’s signature. But Sony has got to decide if they want to spend the money on those things. Each time they have hired in the last 9 years they have brought in someone who has moved the show away from those things.

      Knowing Sony they would hire another hack who has already been at 10 other shows and run the ratings down there too. Or worse rehire Lynn Latham or Maria Bell.

      Or even worse we could get someone like Dena Higley or Megan McTavish or a writer who would make the show campy and outrageous and absolutely nothing like Y&R has ever been.

        This is a very bad YeaR.

        • TV&MovieBuff

          Maybe it is because you are so Dayszed by how boring and DulL Days of our Lives has been lately.

          • sands of time

            Are you serious?

            The last three DAYS alone have been fantastic!

            Gabi’s confession to Nick’s murder and Nicole’s sinful ways coming to light are pulse pounding!!!

            More great DAYS ahead!!!!!

            The only trouble is over YondeR!!!!!!!!!!

      • ROBNYC

        Good point. I guess to expect YR to return to its former glory is a tall order. In my opinion BB is now the only show remaining that hasn’t been damaged and butchered by a series of bad producers. YR had a great run but has joined the ranks of damaged goods. If the ratings drop more they will loose their budget and saving the show will become hopeless.

          I don’t waste my time on BluB.

          • Jasper

            I know Sands. You only watch Days and have zero credibility at this point. I watch Days but you are a bad representative with all your negativity towards every other show. Very childish.

          • sands of time

            I don’t mind GH.

          • GH DAYS fan

            I totally agree. People like him/her are a real shame for any soap. He should stop associating his insulting and crazy comments with DAYS. Not to mention his homophobic attacks against Will and Sonny.

          • sands of time

            You’re a backstabbing small minded person!

          • sands of time

            You need to get your facts straight!

        • TV&MovieBuff

          I am thankful that B&B has stayed in the hands of the Bells. Brad Bell is not perfect but at least he knows how to hire good staff around him to help him.

          • sands of time

            Brad Bell and Dena Higley would work well together!

          • sands of time

            He’e a wuss!

          • Dspray1

            B&B is the most disgusting show with everybody sharing family lovers! Brooke has been with her father-in-law, brother-in-law, son-in-law, daughter’s boyfriend. Then Taylor joined in and swapped beds with all the family men, now Katie’s decided to join the fun. I mean does this happen in real life around the Bell estate?

          • sands of time

            Blub is gross. BluB is depravity. BluB is full of crap! TV&MovieBuff is first and foremost a CBS loyalist. If YawneR is causing viewers to go into comas, then BluB is hot! If BluB becomes too cartoonish, then YawneR is hot. The crooked eye network has those viewers in their pockets because those viewers know or they think they know that the CBS lineup keeps all their weak shows strong. Several months ago, there were several of the Y&R and B&B fans calling for the dismissal of TPIR host Drew Carey because that show was losing viewers and they were scared it would cause their soaps to go down. But TPIR has more viewers. They just want it to be a huge money maker to carry the other lagging shows. They love “The Talk” for the same reason.

        • sands of time

          BluB needs to be audited. They are taking in off the record money from overseas BluB fans.

    • sands of time

      It can’t get any YuckieR.

  • Debster

    Hire Forbes March, now that’s HOT

    • sands of time

      I wish it wasn’t such a YackeR.

  • MeganLA

    And I still don’t get why they continue to hire head writers that already got other soaps canceled. Aren’t there other, better, fresh people around than the same people who failed over and over again? I

    • JONNYC

      It is completely mind boggling. I knew when I read that JFP was taking over YR that I needed to detactch and prepare for the worst because her track record destroying other shows. The show is now filled with strange faces and bad directing and awful writing. They need to nhire a YR veteran with a track record and not some GL, OLTL quality leftover that ruined 6 other shows.

      • sands of time

        YouR sinking feeling.

  • RITA JAMISON

    Y&R HAD BEEN THE TALK BETWEEN COLLEGE STUDENTS & EVEN MEN ENJOYED WATCHING IT. NOW THAT THEY HAVE STOPPED FINDING INTEREST MAYBE THE POWERS TO BE SHOULD REGROUP AND REMEMBER WHAT BROUGHT VIEWERS THEN. YOU CAN DO IT EVEN IF IT MEANS LETTING GO OF HEAD PEOPLE THAT APPEARS TOO BE BRINGING YOU DOWN. YOU DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM TERMANATING ACTORS & ACTRESSES EVEN WHEN WE THE VIEWERS ENJOY AND SEE THAT THEY ARE GREAT AND A GREAT ASSET TO “OUR” FAMILY PROGRAM. NOT SPEAKING ABOUT THE ONES WHO ASK TO LEAVE FOR THEIR PERSONAL REASONS, WHEN THEY NEED OR WANT TO GO AND DO SOMETHING ELSE PLEASE AND ALLOW THEM TO GO GROW AND COME BACK AND SHOW IT PLUS IT WILL BRING MORE VIEWERS BECAUSE OF THE NEW FANS THEY CREATED. THINK ABOUT IT TO STAY #1

      Release the Caps Lock.

    Many of the clips they used have already taken place, which should tell you they aren’t delivering at the moment.

  • Fan of Gina T’s.

    Does anyone know why actresses have to wear bras during love scence? This is very distracting to the scene and takes away from the “realism.” Most people don’t have sex with their bras left on. In the past, they used to wear body stockings and keep the sheet raised to give an illusion. What happended? Did I miss something? Just curious.

    Wow Y&R, still no reveal Summer is Nick’s. This and the fact that Michelle(Phyllis) was in a comma stopped me from watching.Got a call to turn to General Hospital, and there she was. Phyllis(Michelle Stafford) is on General Hospital. I stopped recording Y&R, now taping GH. Also the Naked Heiress(old Abby) is also on General Hospital. Characters that re unpredictable and exciting have left and on General Hospital. Something is wrong at Y&R?
