I was surprised at how thorough it was. Definitely worthwhile for fans of the show… I wonder how they will use the information. As I recall, focus-group information led Jill Farren Phelps to kill off Maureen Bauer on “Guiding Light” all those years ago. I hope I just didn’t sign someone’s death warrant…

most likely but you know what sonniorsolita..they aren’t dumb by any means. They tried to tank the show and instead gained viewers and now want to know why. My advice is either continue with the show or let it go. Get behind your #1 show CBS or just cancel it..stop with the silly surveys to set up your next disaster week…FOR REAL!!!

They gained viewers because All My Children was cancelled. DUH

ohhh geez..
We most likely will not be shown the results..
No, on anything Summer, Sharon Billy, Deven, Hillary, Phyllis, Lily and Dylan ..
that covers it for me ..

I loved taking the survey and expressing my thoughts, feelings,
and opinions on so many aspects of the soap. I wonder how they
will use everyone’s opinions!

Well, that is the thing..
We took a survey and do not know why / who or what for ..
It was put up by Nielsen, ok so………..??

CBS.. but why?

Nanci

Yeah, that is the big question for sure.
Why the survey and why now?
Does someone at the top wonder how
fans feel since Pratt came?
But glad they offered the survey, whatever the reason.
I put my 2 cents in about Summer and Sharon
and Kyle, ugh. And that I like Avery, etc.
Hoping somehow JC comes back.

I felt like I have been heard for the first time in a long time where Y&R is concerned. I hope this spells the end of JFP and Chuck Pratt Jr. We can wish!

All you can do is wish. Unless they leave voluntarily, the only thing that will spell the end of JFP and Mr. Pratt would be a complete viewer revolt and ratings collapse. And it looks like neither is happening anytime soon.

It is only worthwhile if they truly read and comprehend what we are saying.

Its telling that this survey is even out there. There is concern of it wouldn’t be available.

I did it and I recommend it. It may or may not help but it feels as if you are voicing your opinion on a show you love and someone may just make the changes that all of us have been asking for! It is a very good survey. Well written.

I don’t know when this survey was written but I found it hilarious that some of the characters they asked about haven’t been on the show in so long I had almost forgotten they existed, like Jill and Colin. They asked about Gloria– can anyone remember when we last saw Gloria? The only character they didn’t mentioned was Esther — poor Esther, even the powers that be have forgotten you exist-LOL.

I remember when there was a contest to give Esther a last name. It’s Valentine, right? Now they fail to remember her first name! lol

Interesting survey that, unfortunately, does not allow for one taking it to embellish on reasons why selections were made. I would have liked choices for each of my responses. I know that is time-consuming BUT that would be far more valuable data. As someone else mentioned, WHAT is the purpose of the survey and the results it yields? Perhaps presenting that information upfront would help with more genuine responses. I was glad I was able to at least respond in my own words about Y and R: and there I chimed in as I always have– this Y and R is NOT the Bill Bell/Kay Alden brilliant storytelling and character development it was for over 30 years. It will be interesting to see– what, if anything– comes of this. The survey did not say what would be done with results and if those would be publicly available. Does anyone know?

I have been a loyal viewer of the Y&R for more than 30 yrs. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to express my deep disappointment in the producers who fired Michael Muhney to benefit other members of the cast. Michael Muhney < I must say is a very talented and
very charismatic actor and a lot of us believe a true gentleman. Despite all this he was unfairly dismissed and a great number of fans supported him and wanted him back. The fans were not heard and their voices were not even considered. Instead , they chose not to listen and hired another actor. This resulted in fans bitterly resenting the show and some of the fellow actors and abandoning the show altogether, I am one of them and I will NEVER watch this show because I have lost all respect for the producers and their lack of compassion for a family man ( and believe it, this plays in his favour) and now, we his fans, follow everyone of his moves. You have only succeeded in making him very popular. His fans adore him and any show he decides to go to, we follow, and we will make the show very popular. And this is how much WE LOVE MICHAEL MUHNEY,{t is truly the Y&R LOSS, because MICHAEL MUHNEY MADE THE SHOW.

First, loved the survey! It was fun to take. Second, WHY NOW? In the money-hungry, ratings obsessed Network world, Y&R is killing it in the ratings right now. Ratings = Money. I think the negativity will only grow on Social Media, but stats show people ARE happy with and watching the show, in growing numbers. People love to hate Pratt and JFP, but at least ratings-wise, they are working. You can never convince me the Network caress about the viewers opinions. OK–let’s say the fire Pratt, drop unpopular characters or stories, the fans are THRILLED and scream that “Y&R is finally BACK!” But now the ratings fall. Maybe to series low, like General Hospital low. How long do you think CBS will do fans right and continue to produce an expensive, low-rated show? Be careful what you wish for.

CBS- I have such a great idea for you! Why don’t you market- tie in with companies on some of the beautiful clothes and jewelry your actresses where? What a great way to please your viewers and make money for the show!

Do we know when the results will be posted and where? Then if or how they will they address some of them with out giving away the s/l’s?

It does seem the ratings are very good for the Young and the Restless even though so many are dismayed with the recent outrageous storylines. I wonder if ratings take into account how much of the show is fast forwarded. So much of the writing has been atrocious and difficult to watch if watched. Potential meaningful storylines were passed by; Michael and cancer, Kelly and perhaps family abuse. I record and watch before retiring. Then the uncomfortable or silly plots can be skipped which, indeed, I do. All this being said there is always the hope that one will find an improvement in a long watched program.

I really have to believe that the viewers who “love” the show as it stands are fairly new viewers to Y&R, perhaps viewers looking for a new soap who used to watch AMC, ATWT, GL and OLTL. I say this because most of the viewers who state they have watched Y&R for a long time on social media and on soap sites by and large find the writing atrocious. Newbies with no substance are rammed down our throats (looking at you Sage), popular vets like Sharon continue to be butchered, the lead story for the past year featured a bunch of air-headed Scooby kids (looking at you Summer) and the writing is just non-sensical. So if JFP and CP’s intention was to write to draw in younger viewers, perhaps that has worked. Who else but younger viewers can take watching do-nothings like Summer, Kyle and Abby eat the show? I may be wrong, but it seems to me most long-time viewers are NOT happy with the writing because Pratt is killing the essence of what made Y&R #1 in the first place. Victor never paying any real consequences for his CRIMES is not helping as it’s so repetitive. Where’s the suspense or element of surprise in “Victor Wins Again” and Sharon is brow-beaten and vilified for the hundredth time?

June

You think that the writers of the young and the restless would come up with some new and original story lines. Victor always wins and comes out ahead of everyone. This is old and boring. Change it up already. The show is tacky redundant and tasteless.

YR4Ever

What is the answers to the result? How come we don’t see it any where? Guess a lot of fans shared the same opinions who they hated and loved on YR. Sage is a waste of time, she’s a FOJ. Again Sharon is victimized and used to prop up lackluster characters like Sage and Dylan. Nick dumb down like he believed Sage his true love the man married her only because she was pregnant. Victor always win and get away with every dirt he played on Jack and the Abbotts. Dylan is a fake cop or investigator and a dummy who doesn’t check up on Sharon. Nick should be in therapy with Sharon not Sage. Adam’s court case should have reveal Sage is the hit and run driver. Phyllis is a shade of her old self. Faith is dumb down for Sage which is seriously a rewrite and terrible. Both Jill F. Phelps and Chuck Pratt’s days will soon come to an end like Maria A. Bell’s days ended.
