Y&R Ratings: A New All-time Low??

Postby Soulsistah » Tue Aug 04, 2009 7:14 pm

Ok, it's still early in August and I know the Neilsen ratings on several other sites have not yet been released for last week's shows. But here on this site, the reported ratings for last week (week ending July 31, presumably) is a 3.10 share!! I'm sure the fact checkers on this site are doing their job, but I can NOT recall when the ratings were ever this low for the Y&R in the 36 years it's been on the air. I could be mistaken, but could this possibly be a new all-time low for the show ever?! 8) :o

Once the dailies are released for last week's episodes it will be interesting to see how Y&R did last week,episode by episode, given all the backlash on the boards about the show in general.

My, oh, my...Y&R is in trouble if the ratings hover around this rating share...perhaps the writers will start to take note now of what fans on the message boards are really saying. 3)

Honestly, I've been wondering whether the writers are more interested in going home at 5pm on the dot than care about writing for us fans. This Ashley s/l is horrible and very stupid.

I don't understand the ratingsand how they work. However, I hope they go below 2 so the writers and TIIC will change their entire format and start over with sensible s/ls. None of this morbid idiotic stuff! The drivel they give us is pathetic to say the least!

They better tighten up I read the article on that Executive meeting they had with Y&R Cast and Sony VP, that 2yr Contract with Sony will be up before they know it, it would be a ashamed if their is no Y&R just shameful.

i suspect they will still be low. it would seem many are not enjoying the current events taking place. it is too silly and far fetched. characters are being compromised in order to fit certain pairings and of course to move the sl's. fans do not want to watch the characters they know behaving in ways that deviate from the originator himself w.j.bell.

unless you are a Nielsen Family member with a "black box" you turning off your TV means absolutely nothing!! The ratings are only calculated by Nielsen Family Group members who watch or do not watch the show.

All you do when you turn off your TV is conserve energy.

Ratings for the we 07/24
1. Y&R 3.6/12 (+.2/-.1)

Ratings for we 07/17
1. Y&R 3.4/11 (-.1/-.2)

well we are told to conserve and go green. i am of the firm belief that the writers do not pay so much to the little box as they do the advertisers. if many stop buying products (women hold the buying power) they are dependent on the happiness of sponsors and advertisers to keep the show in its status. i feel that w/all the bed hopping, killing of babies, pets and immoral affairs being rewarded, women will stop this placating of the yr and it's sponsors.

boycotting advertisers is iffy, the majority of the commercials are sold months in advance, then you have local commercials.

unless you are going to get Millions of viewers to boycott one of the advertisers it will not do any good to any less.
