Day-To-Day Ratings – HH/Total Viewers
The ratings have been posted late again this week when it is almost time for the ratings for last week, February 17-21, 2017, to be posted. Oh well, we accept what we get when we get it.
Although the ratings are still good, Y&R ratings are slipping downward a bit further than last week. I expect that to happen because the weather is getting a bit better--at least for us in the southern states. We have had almost spring-like weather here for the past week and folks are taking advantage of it. I did continue to read recaps but I did not watch much during this week so I don't have a lot to comment about as far as the quality of the show. Everything is pretty much the same.
All soaps are down in the 18-49 demographic. Y&R is still scrapping with all the other three soaps for domination in the 18-34 category. Y&R is #1 one week and this week they are last! BUT I can imagine that this battle will go on until the viwership and the ratings settle down. AH, I forgot this is the end of February sweeps. Ratings, I am almost certain, were higher for this new regime than for any other sweeps period. Hopefully we shall se how the viewership & ratings hold up during the remainder of this period before May sweeps.
I did enjoy the gala (thru warts and all the inattention to details) that started on that Friday and continued into the next week. I know that the writing still needs a lot of work and there were a lot of strange occurences at the gala but it was something different. It was a bit of fun and entertainment for me to see the characters get all dressed up and interact with each other on a social level. The gala was an event that took this viewer away from all the WTD, contrived romantic couplings, babynapping & everything else that is standard fare for Y&R these days. Loved that loud and crazy guy, Womack, who kept the crowd under control. But more of that should come up for next weeks ratings--not this weeks.
