    Households
    1. Y&R 3.3/11 (same/same)

    Women 18-49 Viewers

    1. GH 0.7 (+.1/+.1)
    2. Y&R 0.6 (-.1/same)

    Day-To-Day Ratings – HH/Total Viewers

    Y&R
    Monday: 3.6/4,810,000
    Tuesday: 3.2/4,514,000
    Wednesday: 3.2/4,366,000
    Thursday: 3.3/4,339,000
    Friday: 3.1/4,243,000

    The viewership slipped a bit this week; but the overall household ratings are the same as last week. Josh Griffith, HW, is gone but Jill Farren Phelps, EP, is still on board; so I am not sure what to say about the show at this point. Will it be business as usual? Or will the show take a new direction? With new writers coming aboard, I am not sure how much of a difference their presence will make, how much control they will have creating stories & casting new characters, or what overall direction the show will take. Katherine Chancellor's death, memorial service, & reading of the will is taking place now and next week. After that occurs, we shall see what direction the show takes.

    All comments are welcome.

    Under Jill's leadership the ratings for women 18-49 collapsed from approximately 1.3 millions to around 600,000. Y&R hiring her has convinced that TPTB are trying to kill soaps.

    If the rumors are true about Dylan being Nikki's long lost son just to attach him to a prominent family, I think this is going to be a huge mistake for Y&R to make. Sorassing children too quickly and shaking up the family trees has already caused enough grief and altered the history of the show drastically. Everybody in town does not have to related to each other or connected to some rich, prominent family to be a character of importance. Just write some good stories please! I want to see what this does for the ratings--if it is true.

    The show is probably down because of the 3 million people who have TWC in LA, NY and Dallas that can't watch Y&R or any CBS show due to the dispute btw the 2 parties.

    as much as I would like TWC disputes to be the case, we all know better that its the crap fest story lines that have been force down our throats.

    as far as I'm concern the ratings are going to keep going down until someone wake up and smell the coffee

    Well lets see why. We now have ghosts galore. We have Sharon ready for looney bin. We have nick living in a shoe house owning a sleezy bar. We have victor constantly screwing his kids. We have Victoria. Dumping Billy then taking him back constantly. Chloe's just a Adam hater giving Chelsea bad advise. We have Chelsea hiding paternity. We have summer moaning over lurch like brother. Wow and which storyline do you think is bringing down the curtain there's so many I need a Santa clause list

    Oldtimers & hardcore Y&R fans are getting excited about this Dylan/Nikki hookup as mother & son; b/c it gives MTS a storyline & puts her on the frontburner again. BUT I agree with Nelson Branco. This storyline is not about Nikki at all. Once Dylan is established as Nikki's son, this is all about Dylan & his life & times in GC. Nikki is a vet who is being used to give the character of Dylan some credence and a reason to eat & usurp the frontburner of Y&R alive. JFP is going to see that this happens unless the fans do not respond in a positive manner to it.
