  • Congrats to Y&R and BB! No wonder there was no mention of ratings from NBC. Such a shame… 🙂

    • sands of time

      Maybe next week.

      • Bernard Albert

        And your theory being??????

        • sands of time

          My theory being is no matter how great DAYS is and no matter how crappy YawneR is, the ratings simply screw things up!!!

          Maybe DAYS ratings will be higher next week…I know the show will be great!!!

          • Andrew Hass

            Yeah Days might be great but it won’t matter much if people aren’t watching the show.Plus no show is 100% good or 100% bad.Which means Y&R might be a crappy show but there is something good that made people tune

          • Patrick Ferrando

            So then according to your logic the reverse would be true too

      • RobNYC

        I have a theory about soaps and low ratings….I think that once a show drops below a certain point that it is very hard to reenagage viewers enough to bounce back no matter how good. I was worried about Y&R for a while because they were dropping fast. DAYS does very well with very little and GH pulling itself back from near death gives me hope. I watch and support every show and try and watch same day. I think they are all great. I used to only watch B&B and Y&R but am glad I expanded to include them all….especially DAYS.

  • RobNYC

    It looks like a good week for Y&R,B&B and not terrible for GH and DAYS. I watch them all now…GH the least but the others at least 4x per week. They are all very different and each are fun in their own way.

  • nkramer9977

    How is Y&R is up in ratings Ian try to kidnapped Mariah.
    Also, B&B too Hope marrying Wyatt.

  • Andrew Hass

    For the CBS soaps it was a good week.

  • GH DAYS fan

    And once again, #Best #DAY of the week for #DAYS was the episode that started with Sonny (and Will on the phone) already in the first scene 😉

    • RobNYC

      I think DAYS has been all around good. Even on fthe non-Kristen episodes the other stories and characters are doing a great job keeping the viewers interest. They have a reliably good production formula that keeps me watching 4x per week. Glad for DVR’s since DAYS , YR, BB are on at the same time here and all are great now.

  • Derrick

    Go CBS……….Happy for this!

  • TV&MovieBuff

    Way to go Y&R and B&B. Glad to see that even though CBS didn’t mention the 18-34 demo that Y&R also went up in it too. Good week for both of my shows.

    • sands of time

      Do you have a theory as to why they didn’t mention the 18-34 demo?

      • Patrick Ferrando

        Because that’s the one demo they aren’t up in year to date. But none of the shows are.

  • nyvoter

    Good week for Y&R, all the way around
