They have started posting the 25-54 demo.

Still no data on men, like they used to.

I'm still not a demo. Tongue

Y&R Continues to shed viewers

I see that #YR is continuing to shed viewers every week. Let's just hope that they continue to do so. Maybe, just maybe Sony and CBS will kick #JFP out the front door and slam it shut!

Y&R isn´t shedding viewers.

Y&R isn´t shedding viewers. Despite many fans' unhappiness about the direction of the show, that hasn't had any impact on the ratings. In fact, they're better than they were under the previous regime, and that's why Farren Phelps is staying put.

Yes, it makes no sense. There is no way I believe a true Y&R fan would want to watch the current "show" and deem this show as "Y&R"-like. It's not.

11/11-11/15 Y&R 4,743,000 (-55,000/+400,000)

B&B is inconsistent but doing good
Days is slowly up trending, reflective of the good buzz surrounding the show
GH has had one bad week but bounced back
Y&R has gone down every week the last three ratings period. Not surprised.

Also the dailies were not posted, but B&B's highest rated ep for last week was a 2.9. Y&R's lowest was a 3.1. B&B was only 2/10ths of a rating point behind Y&R. The show has gotten a bit better since the new writers started but Y&R is the weakest soap in the daytime lineup from a cohesive standpoint. The show if filled with too many hair models who are attached to vapid characters and the parts of the show that is more fluid is also highly depressing. JFP has had over a year to wow us and she hasn't. I don't think the show will ever hit a new zenith under her. Her ideas are washed up.

A true fan actually sticks

A true fan actually sticks with anything thru good and bad.

Just like Latham and MAB, Phelps will be gone.

Even though Delia's story angered a lot of people, it still had a lot of great moments.

The new writing hasn't been bad. Lots of good things happening, and Jean's stuff hasn't started yet.

And Yoryla, it'll never be "YR like" again, but the same can be said for GH under its new team as well. Different, but not the same as we'd like to remember it.

True, I've said as much

True, I've said as much myself about the difference. However, I don't think that being a true fan means you have to watch a show "just because". Firstly, it's a show, not a person. Secondly, even if someone would see it like that, we don't condone or approve of everything our families do, either.

At times, I actually find it

At times, I actually find it MORE watchable than under MAB because it's more realistic than watching chipmunk heads and crop dusting.

I hate when posters only come on here and bitch about a show, and never point out anything positive. I especially hate those comments coming from people who really don't watch the show anyway, and just like to pile on the negativity. That gang mentality never sets well with me, and it makes me more apt to then point out the positives, regardless of the current state of the show. It's not productive, and it's even more depressing than the shows can be.

Having said all that, I was torched when I criticized Phelps taking over for Maria. I knew that it probably wouldn't be good for the show. I do think Josh had some good moments the year he was headwriter, so when people say otherwise, they are flat out lying, or again not paying attention to the show.

I've liked some of the things Altman has done on her own already, and we've seen a lot more of the old sets, and actually less of the newer cast members. It was very "dark" as people keep saying for about a week, but it's balanced now again.

P~

I might be very pissed at YR and yes I do watch it in bits and pieces, I won't say I will "completely" stop watching because it's CBS and I don't like YR as of now as with the past regimes. I still consider myself a "true fan"...but you might not but I personally don't see Altman being balanced same as Josh. You're right both Josh & Hackman didn't do those silly chipmunk or crop dusting ridiculous stories but it's not good story. As Jamey said on the podcast YR hasn't had any long-term story on canvas since JFP, Josh, now Hackman arrived in GC. At least MAB\Hogan did do long-term stories as LML...and this isn't saying much.

I'm waiting for Jean because because all the bitchin' and moaning people have done about her & Hogan's time at ATWT (she was a writer with Hogan at ATWT many years) I actually liked many of stories very much, I only wish she had a different EP at times. Chris wasn't as bad as JFP, just went on these tang-its at times I hated.

I so totally agree with you about people pushing their negativity and hate on YR when they don't even watch, this is why I don't comment on GH because I could do the same thing....spew the hate because I HATE GH and Ron's type of writing personally speaking. Angry The only time I see GH is when flipping through the channels and "Cassie Lane" or "Carly Tenney Snyder" is on my screen because you know the scene will be damn great! Wink Kim Zimmer coming abroad on GH is what I heard I will do the same thing, but after they leave the screen so do I and change the channel. I'm not going to defend YR when it's mediocre trash either but I've loved YR for 40 years and that type of love doesn't go away easily with me as with some I guess. Love

I agree with SoapA...

I'm in agreement with SoapA about YR. YR isn't shedding viewers but frustration is showing a bit from viewers. YR is dipping the last three weeks which, this sounds horrible but I want it bleed viewers so maybe someone will pay attention at Sony, CBS and want to make change better sooner than 3 years from now down the road and YR is crippled and possibly in a unrecoverable area.

Maybe each past regime had their own good points starting from LML- wrote the Winters the best but included Drucilla and arrival of Devon wrote Winters family more intelligently for stories.

MAB, writing in the beginning with Paul R. as co-EP, he grounded Maria and her last 9 months was her best with Phyllis being exposed.

Josh, in the beginning writing for all the vets pre-anniversary show, and the Baldwins.

JFP & Hackman I haven't seen any such story as of now but more as how GH was being written during their time when JFP Shelley, Tracey was at GH. YUCK!

I found a taste

I found two parts of ATWT from '05, as Jean was headwriter and I think ATWT was very good and look who she has on her writing team, Trent Jones (YR writer with Kay & Jack) Josh Griffin, Chris Whitesell, Leah Laiman, Courtney Simon (long long time P&G writer actress) Susan Dansby (current YR) with other long time P&G writers and noticed two more currently writing for DOOL right now.

All has been HW some with success and some not so much but man that's some talent. It's Lucinda cancer story when it had spread with the cast is just amazing! Love Love Sad(

I’m not sure watching a show

I’m not sure watching a show ALWAYS has something to do with whether someone is a true fan or not.

I’ve watched Y&R for about 24 years (off and on during my teens and continuously since college). I quit watching the show for 18 months during the MAB regime, but I would have felt offended if anyone had suggested that I wasn’t a true fan during that time. I couldn’t stomach the crappy writing, but I still followed the show and hoped that it would get better.

I don't think I'll ever stop watching again, but if I do, that won't mean that I don't care about it.

Harlee... As usual, I am

Harlee...

As usual, I am holding out hope for Jean.

ATWT had it's troubles under both her and Hogie, though.

I'd like to know more about her dynamic with Phelps.

We thought Phelps and JG were best buds, but she turned on him.

I've seen some of Jean's tweets and she seems VERY proud of her GH work. I don't know what she was responsible for there, but I've made my feelings known about that show's current state.

Hopefully she'll come on board with a traditional CBS storytelling approach. Altman I think is already showing she's not YR HW material if she's the one responsible for Nikki's reveal this past week.
