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

No, on anything Summer, Sharon Billy, Deven, Hillary, Phyllis, Lily and Dylan ..

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!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

Hi Liz,

Anyway, maybe you got to it by now,

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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

Y&R Shares ‘Most Memorable Moments Of Dina Mergeron’: What Was Your All-Time Favorite?

Yesterday, viewers of The Young and the Restless needed the hankies as they had to say goodbye to the character of Dina Mergeron and actress Marla Adams who was killed-off the CBS Daytime drama series due to Dina’s battle with Alzheimer’s coming to a a heartbreaking end.

Adams had been with the series on and off for over five decades.  In story and during her run, when Dina reappeared or disappeared it was a game-changer for the Abbott family.  She was a wealthy woman who often put her own needs in front of her children and her marriage to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).  From affairs, leaving her children when they were young, to becoming a manipulative business woman, Dina Mergeron was no push-over.

When Marla Adams returned to the series four years ago in 2017, it was the intent that during Dina’s decline from Alzheimer’s  disease that she would reunite with her children and help the family find some inner-peace from all the damage and pain she had caused them through the years.

In honor of the wonderful portrayal of Marla Adams, Y&R put together a clip package of some of Dina’s most memorable moments.   You can watch it below!

Then let us know, what was your all time favorite Dina moment via the comment section below.   And if you have not done so already, make sure to check out Michael Fairman TV’s farewell interview with Marla, posted shortly after Dina passed on Friday’s episode.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Drops New Single Following Break-Up with Demi Lovato

First, she dropped a new single about her split from this former soap alum, now he has in turn dropped his own tune on Friday!  We are speaking of pop singing sensation, Demi Lovato and actor and singer, Max Ehrich best known to soap audiences as the former Fenmore Baldwin on The Young and the Restless.

Ehrich just released the song “Afraid” and Max shared on his Instagram: “From the bottom of my hopeful romantic heart. Infinitely grateful to be releasing the first song off of my music project.”

Photo: InstagramDLovato

In the lyrics you here Max sing, “I’m afraid to love you, love you/ Afraid to give in my all.   Then in the chorus he laments: “I’m afraid to love you, love you / Love you with my whole heart.”

 

One of the verses contains the lines: “Don’t want to disappoint you / No, I don’t want to lose you, no, no, no / You make me feel so good inside / I’ve been broken so many times / I’m just trying to stay alive / I’m afraid, I’m afraid.”

“Afraid” has many believing the song was written about Max’s public break-up with Lovato, however, Ehrich tells Billboard: “I hope ‘Afraid’ will help people allow themselves to be vulnerable,  I recorded this song as I was falling in love. It speaks of all the emotions that I was going through at that time.”

You can check out a snippet from the song below from Ehrich’s post on IG.

So, what do you think of Max and Demi both releasing songs after their break-up? Do you like Max’s new track? Comment below.
