Ratings, Rants and Raves: The Young and the Restless Ties Lows Among W18-49 and W18-34!


Days of Our Lives dropped just 58,000 total viewers over the previous week. DAYS was dead last in total viewers, households and W18-49. Among W18-34, the NBC soap was tied at No. 2 with Y&R.

Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall) got an eyeful of her stepson Brady's (Eric Martsolf) chiseled buttocks—thrusting up and down, around and around— on top of Kristen Blake (Eileen Davidson). Everyone and their Aunt Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) yelled at Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) because of Dr. Hairy Crotch's (Shawn Christian) wonky hand. Nick (Blake Berris) offered to marry Gabi (Camila Banus) and raise his gay cousin Will's (Chandler Massey) baby as his own. Meanwhile, Father Eric (Greg Vaughan) counseled everyone — hotly.

Bristen is definitely a diamond in the poop on this show. Jarlena needed a good shaking up, and their mortal enemy in bed with their kid is classic soap. Add in Kristen's alliance with little brother EJ (James Scott)—who is in love with Marlena's daughter Sami (Alison Sweeney)— and you have two gruesome-yet-sexy DiMera siblings threatening to tear apart the Brady-Blacks. Me likes. See you next ratings!

Where is Liz? I just can't do this with GH anymore. I can't.

I actually watch DOOL just for Kristen. I like her and Brady together. I wonder if they are going to do a Kristen/Brady/Nicole triangle. I just can't stand to see Eric in a priest outfit.

No sex, cancel Y&R now. Josh G is the MOST boring Daytime writer ever.

Seeing Nikki prance around like the Town Frau is getting pretty old. Seeing all of the Newmans wonder if they can figure out who burned their Ranch down is a hilarious joke. Sharon basically has the empty absinthe bottle in her hand, and all of the evidence points to her, but Victor can't do a damn thing about it.

If Jack passed out in his car, or Billy pining over Vicky is the future of Y&R, please let ol HeyMon turn off the lights on the Show.

1st, I am really counting on The New Studs to save the Show. Hopefully the Detective, Mason, Tyler, and Carmine can keep the gays and women interested for another year. If 2 of the above are involved in a real organized crime story-line, I'll continue watching, as well. Please let's have Tyler sniffing after someone other than Lily, cause she's about as much fun as watching paint dry.

2nd, that had better be a strip club that Nick is thinking of opening, or at least an interesting a rock-a-billy music club. Maybe Josh could resurrect Ryan, and he and Nick could sing some country duets.

3rd, people have stopped having sex on Y&R. There is no one happy to get it on. So we definitely some that back in the mix.

As usual, it's a story that only paints Y and R in a negative light, when ALL the shows shed over a hundred thousand viewers each except for Days. And B and B and the darling of this website, GH actually lost more.

DC is starting to remind me of Fox news they way things get spun on here.
