Whats kind of alarming is how much Mal Youngs ratings have been much lower then JFPs. did CBS make a mistake in firing Jill when she had great ratings?


Do you understand these are PRATT'S numbers? His WRITING is the reason for the lousy ratings. The past couple months have been terrible story wise, even though production is greatly improved.

Remember when people claimed Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford would bring GH to the top?


Is Daytime Confidential still talking about the wonders of Franco and Nina? 


As for Filler Miller - ratings dropped and dropped when he was at Y&R so I'm not shocked. Frankly I'm surprised he's still there. I guess money talks and his big career of doing bad accents on FX shows had its limits.

I'd hardly call any gain at all a 'good week' unless it holds.  Everyone's numbers are so down year over year - the 18-49 numbers are awful across the board.  A gain in total viewers hardly matters - looks great for the headlines but if your only real gain is in total viewers, and your 18 to 49 is down year over year (given the level that they are) - the trend is still downward for every show.  It's one thing when a show was down year over year but their 18-49 was still 1.5...when you're down year over year and you're below 1.0 it's not good news for anyone.


I did notice a couple of times on Friday that Y&R didn't sound like the Y&R I've been hearing...the dialogue was better toward the end of the week which makes me think that although Pratt may have written some of it, it's been tweaked by someone else heavily.  As boring as the show has been, there was some good dialogue between Sharon and Dylan, Sharon and Mariah, Chelsea and Faith, etc.  The show has never looked better in recent history - maybe ever.  The difficulty will be whether SSM and Alden can get back viewers or at a minimum stop bleeding for the near term, and maybe get some  building going on.  Honestly, no show has been able to do it and that's why there are only 4 soaps left.  When your core base, your die hard fans turn the show off - they don't come back.  And no show is getting new viewers tuning in - that's why the 18-34 numbers and 18 to 49 are so bad.  If they are getting viewers, it's in the over 50 crowd that advertisers don't care about.   Retirees that are perceived to have no money or be on a fixed budget that they don't advertise to.  The Y&R team has their work cut out for them.  I'm on the fence about so many of the newer characters (newer meaning in recent history) - like Travis, Stitch, (don't know what the point of Michele is other than to break up Travis and Victoria).  I'm still not liking the Billy recast...he just doesn't seem like Billy to me.   I just see a lack of chemistry between alot of characters on this show...I don't know what it is - there's no spark among alot of them. 


I can't remember the actress who plays Mariah - I knew she had played Cassie but I didn't watch during any of the years she was on there really.  I just knew the history from reading recaps.  That girl is a gem in my opinion.  Give her work....alot of it.

    • Both of those ideas are great ideas. I’d just hope that CBS/SONY would include ALL good episodes or scenes surrounding the particular storyline or set of characters that they are dealing with. For example, Kay and Jill. If they’re going to set up their feud for us with select scenes or episodes from 73-82, they need to include all the good and important scenes not only for the Jill/Kay/Phillip storyline (including the aftermath where Kay takes Jill to court and then the gaslighting of Kay by Jill), but also things like the scenes or the full episode from October 27, 1976 when Kay makes Jill sign the affidavit that Phillip never fathered Jill’s baby. That’s important stuff. They also need to include every good scene from the Jill/Kay/Derek/Stuart/Liz/Suzanne saga as well from 1978-80. That definitely shaped the feud as well. The final things they’d need to include are the scenes of Kay intimidating Jill when she wants to marry John, Kay sending John the transcripts of the court proceedings, Kay reading the transcripts and then breaking down (in the blue dress where the scene ends and she says “Ohhh she’s got to pay…” and she clutches the paper to her chest), and then from December 1982 where Kay has the dinner party and tries to humiliate Jill and John comes to Jill’s defense, and then the scenes between Jill and Kay where Jill taunts Kay in the one scene we’ve seen before where Jill goes, “You see, I’m not afraid of you anymore Kay. I am just as rich as you are….and I have the man that I love. Nothing can hurt me now.” THEN, start with full episodes of the series from 1983 on.  THAT would be the way to go about it. Don’t be stingy on scenes. If you’re gonna do it, go big or go home.
    • And from what I just saw, the person who wrote the original tweet is Canadian and will be unaffected (at least directly) by the decision to move to Peacock. The daytime soaps industry needs to admit that a large section of their daily viewers are likely retirees on fixed incomes. The reality is that the US doesn’t have as generous a social safety net as Canada and many people have had to keep a tighter rein on their pocketbooks and wallets.  If this person is so fixed on everybody chipping in to subscribe to Peacock’s paid tier, why doesn’t she start a Go Fund Me account to raise money and gift some subscriptions? Otherwise, she needs to mind her own business (which is free, by the way) and see to her own plans. Soap fans can really be unproductive. Musing on soap specific message boards is one thing but sending trash takes onto internationally known microblogging social media sites is another thing altogether. 
    • I know @Soapsudsposted this upthread but it bears repeating: If you or anyone you know lives in a state with one of these Republicans, whenever they come up for re-election:
