Ooouuu that 1981 episode will be great to see regardless of what/who all is in it, but my fingers are crossed for Vanessa! Classic Liz Foster would be a nice sight, too.

 

Kudos to whomever decided to pull this one out. I’ll be they had to do some fighting to get it on the air.

 

I'm so excited for 1981!

I'm hoping if these classic episodes get decent ratings, Sony might see the value in getting the back catalogue out there in some way. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but this is a pretty rare opportunity for them to see if there is interest in these older episodes.

 

I'd love this too.

 

Aren't the classic reruns doing pretty good though?

I think so, though I guess we will have to see how the full week(s) of reruns will do

A regular episode of Y&R has been getting a 2.9. The classic episode last week featuring the masquerade ball had a 2.2 Nielsen rating. Again, the 2.2 is a higher number than a new GH or Days episode aired.

Well that's good. And LOL that it still beats GH/DAYS.

 

Curious to see how a full week does

I just wonder what B&B is going to do. You can tell Y&R is viewing this as a long term thing and will truly be utilizing their library. At some point B&B will have to go prior to 2013 it would seem. They’re gonna end up left in the dust!

I wonder if we'll see the episode where Victor spanks Nikki to show her who's boss.

This was when Victor moved her onto the ranch on a strictly platonic basis, Nikki was doing her sex kitteen act to break his defences  so he decided a little ass  paddling was in order!

Maybe that tape has been destroyed !!

 

LMAO. Their relationship was so weird. She moves in, and then at some point there's that scene where Katherine is asking her if she knows how to please a man (seen in MTS 40th anniversary episode) and suggests she try to get him when he's asleep... I wonder if this is what prompts the spanking? Then there was an episode where she's on the ranch pregnant and Victor makes a comment about her weight. Victor stands by while Kevin is courting her, and Victor seems to support it, but he and Nikki must have had sex by this point yet he doesn't seem worried he may be the father (does he still think that his vasectomy worked? I thought he discovered that earlier). Then Victoria is born, I guess Nikki and Victor get together, but she ends up with Ric Daros (how?), Victor gets harpooned in the balls, Nikki gets him revved back up, lol. They get married in 1984, then we don't have that many episodes, but suddenly he's with Ashley and she's with Jack. By 1986, Victor encourages Nikki to get with his brother Matt, but is also really jealous every time he sees them together, but at least it's better than her being with Jack. I wish we could see all the missing parts in this story. Victor cuckolding himself willingly is freaking strange.

I read that Fridays have lower ratings and all the classics have been on Friday so far. Do you happen to know how the 2.2 rating compares to a Friday episode? Is 2.9 the average for the week?

They're going to air the top 50 episodes in Australia, presumably they won't be all Liam and Steffy episodes like they are here!

If I were Carlaviti or Valentini ...id be embarrassed that a rerun beats all of their new shows.

Regarding the ratings: anyone who uses household ratings is WAY behind the times. Household ratings mean nothing and they haven’t meant anything for years!!! Get with it, folks. This is 2020. Household ratings went out back in the 80’s. 
That said, kudos to CBS for showing classic Y&R. They are not afraid to show how much better the show was back in the 90’s and even the 80’s. Thanks CBS.

Yes, Friday's are the lowest numbers for soaps. Y&R was posting a 2.7 on Fridays. The average for last week was a 2.7.

I was a Paul /Lauren fan and Paul/Cassandra fan too but instead we got boring Cricket and Paul....talk about dull boring. Paul sure was his mother's son. Righteous Mary Williams...lol

 

Preach it! Paul/Lauren were also favorites so I was shocked that I totally dug the Paul/Cassandra. Pricket never did it for me.

 

And, gosh, if Mary Williams was such a great character - with her sanctimonious attitude - but the one thing I liked is that they never moved her uptown. It was refreshing to have that contrast from all the rich folks. Wasn't Mary a big fan of Isabella because she also spent a lot of time in church? I don't really remember much from that era.

Yeah she got duped by Isabella.  Mary wanted a church going woman and kept pimping her to Paul. I think Mary worked because of the actress and how many sons didn't have a mother like Mary Williams ?..lol

 

But seriously I don't know what WJB was thinking with Chris and Paul ...yuck!

Am I wrong, or was that Paul Tulley, a.k.a. OLTL's original Dr. Larry Wolek, playing Norman?

 

Yes that is Paul Tulley playing crazy Edward. He also appeared in episode # 2  of Dallas " The Lesson" in 1978. He played Lucy's teacher who she falsely accuses of trying to rape her when Pam forces her to attend school. Pamela confronts her about the lie and Lucy agrees to clear his name if Pam gets off her back. A classmate Roger (Jeffrey Byron) knows the truth and blackmails Lucy into going with him to the disco and implies she has to put out for him.

It’ll be great to see the classic episodes of Y&R. Won’t miss the current crap, which is so inferior to the classic stuff we are about to see. Goodbye and good riddance  #Skyle (worst pairing ever!) Adam being a killer, Abby, etc etc etc.
