RATINGS: B&B Ties Y&R in Key Demos

Photo: JPI

The ratings are out for the week of July 4th-8th, and while all four daytime soaps were partially preempted, or fully preempted on Monday, the race for the top spots in key demos is now neck and neck between CBS daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless.

While The Young and the Restless remains at number one in total viewers, B&B is just 303,000 behind, and the two sister soaps have now tied in the 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

The Bold and the Beautiful continues to draw viewer interested with: Sheila holding a very much alive Finn hostage, a Brooke and Ridge reconciliation, and more.  In addition, B&B gained 104,000 viewers for the week and is slightly up year-to-year from 2021.

Over at The Young and the Restless, the series showed gains of 64,000 total viewers for the week, and also remained slightly up in viewer count year-to-year.  Y&R has been featuring the Ashland Locke/Victoria Newman saga, and a new revenge plot with Adam and Ashland joining forces.

Check out the entire ratings picture from SON here.

I’m not surprised. Bold and The Beautiful is way better then Young and The Useless. Someone please fire Josh Griffith and put a Bell in charge. Watching old clips from 90s and early 2000s compared to todays drivel it’s such a stark contrast. How long until CBS wakes up and hires new blood for this show . I can’t stand Billy’s podcast , Abby , Mariah , Devon , Michael and that hair . Christian Leblanc is a cheesy overrated actor . They should have a serial killer storyline to get rid of some truly pathetic characters .

I agree with everything you wrote. From Griffith to the characters as well as especially how bad Christian LeBlancs become. I thought Griffith was merely a filler until a real writer came but this is sad. The show needs a major overhaul and a return to the real Y n R, lush sets and classic background music. The show looks, sounds and feels cheap

So cheap ! The whole show is just a mess. I turn it on for 5 minutes and that’s all I can handle. It wouldn’t be hard for them to make it good again , just follow the Bell formula. Classic music , character driven stories , better sets . And how many companies does one show need , and the amount of CEOs, COOs , running around . They should have three companies and have them compete. I suspect this show will plummet even further in the ratings and sometimes that what I think CBS wants . At this… Read more »

Michael and Phyllis s characters have become cartoon versions of the Bell days when they were conflicted, evil but driven by love and revenge. Now Phyllis’s screams in every scene and runs a Ikea looking hotel when she was once a I.T expert . She should be mixing it up at one of the 100s of businesses Griffith has branched out of the three major ones. Michael was one mean nasty lawyer and now he’s the town crier smiling ear to ear as Victor’s lil errand boy while poor Lauren has s hissy fit and storms off. She also used… Read more »

Don’t know who you are but I agree with everything you said! What is up with LeBlanc?? He’s acting like he’s already on stage and every scene is life or death. And Phyllis is literally a cartoon. AND has the worst outfits. Ridiculous

Noah is completely wasted. Allie is boring and looks like she’s twelve compared to Noah. The Nate / Imani thing is stupid Mariah has a job??

Thank God for Ashland !

Michael I agree with your whole comment, especially Phyllis and M.Baldwin. I think he’s going through a mid-life crises, and Phyllis , I think someone in the wardrobe dept. hates her, who would dress like she does to go to the park?Now, I like Sharon but am sick of seeing this coffee shop lady all glitzed up serving coffee and mental health advice to whoever walks in the door plus being a helicopter mom to her kids. Every time poor Noah walks in the door I expect her to run up to him, saying, did you have a B.M today… Read more »

Oh Violet, if someone had dressed like Phyllis in public when I was young, she’d be arrested for indecent exposure! And how about Victoria swanning around the office with a waist-high slit up the side of her dress? I’ve worked with high-positioned women all my life and never witnessed this! And yes, Sharon is being wasted; she’s become the Nancy Hughes (from AS THE WORLD TURNS) of the show — serving coffee and being Genoa City’s answer to DEAR ABBY.

OMG, these women! I think the only thing good I can say about Diane is at least she does dress in good taste. Maybe that will change when she goes to work for Kyle and Summer.Gabi is another one as she struts her voluptuous body around whatever company she’s haunting at the time.

Boop Gee, I was just going to agree with everything you wrote on another post about Vickie and Ashland, the pot and Frying Pan thing. While I like Victor too, Iam sick of him always getting his own way while his snooty wife’s nose just goes up higher and higher. As far as Michael’s hair, I don’t have words to describe it, plus he looks and acts inebriated most times. I miss your Posts, I usually agree with them, as I do with just about everything you wrote on the other post. I’ve tried to hate Aston and rationalize the… Read more »

Let’s call a spade a spade. Viewers are tuning in to B&B to see what Sheila will do next; the same way they tuned in in 1992 when she first crossed over and propelled B&B to number two in the ratings:) all those years with her off canvas was a mistake.

I am loving Young and the Restless as long as the writers allow Ashland Locke to show some power! It never made sense to have him play a weak minded powerful man without any knowledge of what Victoria was doing ; however , I’ll give him a small break because I believe that he truly fell for Victoria. Nevertheless, the writers should have had a plan B for Ashland just in case the expected happened ; what Victoria did. Another peeve that I have with the writers is that Kyle was allowed to take Ashland’s son without a fight. As… Read more »

I have B&B from day one, but I can’t stand another minute of Brooke and Ridge. The word “destiny” makes me cringe. Why Brad Bell can’t realize that legacy characters can move on without keeping super couples together is beyond me. Just look at Luke and Laura who moved on to healthy, fun relationships with other characters and away from each other and the show has survived. People change and grow and Brooke and Ridge need to do the same.

Violet Lemm

You are so right. I’m so sick of Ridge and Brookie, I don’t know how they even stand each other and Brook right now, putting up with Ridge’s crap with Taylor,leaving his wife and home just because he despises his step-daughter’s father. I would have told him long ago to take a hike. Neither woman has any pride or taste in men. Maybe, it’s Bells taste in women because come to think of it, the only one I can really take is Traci.

Was doing this reply when the phone rang and don’t remember if I posted it. Was agreeing about Bell’s destiny couples. I can’t stand Brook and Ridge, together or apart.Brooke has no pride or dignity, Taylor either the way she takes Ridge back, after every woman he’s with, Taylor, that friend of Quinn’s from Vegas, the little hanky panky he had with Quin when she first married Eric. I think it’s Mr.Bell’s fault that he has a thing for the wrong women.

People can hate on bold but the Sheila storyline is on fire. Yand r has its moments but is definitely a slow move at times regardless of what anyone says I still say days is consistent and always enjoyable. I can understand the bold and beautiful increase I see at restless they are trying the same thing with Diane Jenkins only Kyle and summer are acting like 2 fools as is Jack and I am sorry but Victoria is an ice princess Devon is a bore and Michael’s mad scientist hair is a no go

I agree on most things especially your comment on Kyle and nuSummer who is bugging me lately trying to keep the peace between Phyllis and Diane and still stay on Kyle’s side. Funny, they never show her with Harrison. A million yesses on Michael’s hair.Is he making a statement, would l8ke to see some of them here.

Michael’s allowing the natural gray to show . what we’re seeing now usually occurs when a person has dyed his/her hair for years and stops dyeing it, the gray comes forth with full impact! I had some friends to do that . I’m loving it!

This doesn’t surprise me…Y&R is almost unwatchable with the exception of the Diane Jenkins storyline. Before they brought her back, the show was a total clunker but unfortunately, having this character back isn’t enough to make the show as good as it once was. B&B on the other hand, played the right cards when they brought Sheila back. It will be interesting to see if she gets out of the trouble she’s already in but because we love to watch her psycho antics, we’ll take her for as long as we can have her.And that’s how B&B tied Y&R in… Read more »

Y n R is Sheila’s original home and I don’t know what’s taken it sooo long for her to return. Bring Sheila back to raise hell. It’s a no brainer for ratings. Lauren, Michael ,Paul , Cricket need a Sheila go round. Maybe Sheila can go to jail and get her Lawyer license and force Michael and Christine to deal with her. I would go further and say recaset Abby finally with a capable actress. Toss Tessa and Mariah and Noah out and bring back Fenn and Anna as played by the last actors to play out the young love… Read more »

CBS promo of “Some Like It Hot” is clearly for B&B! Also liked the “Bold is Back” promos from last year better. I predict that the show will pass Y&R in overall ratings as long as the show focuses on crazy Sheila and her antics. Can’t wait for the reunion of Finn and Steffy. Brooke and Ridge are back together with Deacon on the prowl. Eric finally moved on from Quinn. And give Katie and Dollar Bill a front and center storyline. Need a good location shoot too. Don’t watch Y&R to suggest any changes.

Now my 3am thoughts…Since Finn can still be alive, hoping his other mom, Li, somehow survived her underwater car crash and comes back with a vengeance to confront Sheila. And then there is Finn’s real dad, Jack. Brooke and Ridge have become big yawn for me. And I most always like Quinn. Loved how she bicycled to just get to the church on time to break up April and Carter’s wedding. Eric is a great hypocritical disappointment. As for Y&R…can’t stand Victoria, or how she, Victor and the rest of the family treat Adam. I’m ready to see Ashland gone,… Read more »

I definitely agree about the treatment or Adam ; plus , I don’t care about any of the Newmans except Victor and Adam ; however , at the present I want him to have a serious foe! The writers could use Ashland as serious competition instead of writing him out of the show! Allow Ashland to become the Sheila for this show!!!! COME ON JOSH!!!

Hi again. I’ve seriously wondered over the years if Eric Braeden had it put in his contract that no one will ever get the best of him in any SL?
It gets a little boring to always see him patting himself on the back. Seems like the only thing he’s never been able to win out on is getting his kids all on the same side and yet he can’t ir doesn’t want to stop the competition between them all. I’ve been waiting for that twit Abby to get wind of all this.

Boop

I don’t know if Eric did that ; however ,it is a thought. Regardless – I want some true competition on the Show ; even if it’s within the family!!!

Violet, can you imagine if Abby took a break from stroking Chance’s hair and wanted back in Newman Enterprises? Queen Vic would have to find a job for her that was WAAAYYYY subordinate to her own AND bigger than she would ever allow Adam to even sniff at. Must be hard being the “Big Cheese”; in Victoria’s case it’s Limburger.

Oh, you noticed the slit up Vicki’s leg to her belly-button?
She is something else and am wondering why they would be bringing her kids home at this point? Just reaching here but maybe Chelsea will talk Billy into letting Johnny spend time with Connor, seeing as how they are brothers, he said no, the last time she asked, he said no and I know Victoria would never agree to that.

I don’t get the Lily CEO storyline. She was a dancer and model,and now is this all amazing CEO… all of the sudden.
To top that feat, Devon who has been successful in the business world, he wouldn’t let his unexpetienced sister run his company, It doesn’t make any sense?? She also tells Billt what to do when he has been an executive for years??

Soaphound

I know, Cindy, it’s really stretching believability. Has she ever even had a business class? And yet, we have Queen Victoria questioning Sally’s ability to run Newman Media when she’s (a) already been co-running it with Adam and (b) ran a fashion company in L.A.! Talk about mixed messages. Lily had better schedule some “looking over her own shoulder” time because Chelsea is on the prowl again.

Violet Lemm

We forget that when Lily was in prison she did something with ex- prisoners, teaching them how to lead better lives on the outside. Maybe she learned something herself. No one was more surprise than me when Jill came to her and practically handed over her company, and having Billy work for HER . Oh yes, Chelsea is bad news, always has been as far as Iam concerned.

Soaphound/Violet – Yes, and she was in jail for murdering Hilary, technically Manslaughter which is a felony. I could see her as a Director of Marketing or something, but a convicted felon is a CEO is a major stretch???

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.

Anne Heche in “Extremely Critical Condition”; Still in Coma Following Fiery Car Crash

Although earlier reports over the weekend had soap opera alum and Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World) in stable condition following crashing her car into a home, on Monday an update on her condition looked more grim.

According to a statement provided to Deadline by Heche’s rep: “At this time Anne is in extreme critical condition. She has a significant pulmonary injury requiring mechanical ventilation and burns that require surgical intervention. She is in a coma and has not regained consciousness since shortly after the accident.”

Since last Friday, Heche has been hospitalized following a harrowing incident where she crashed her car which caught fire into a private home in the Mar Vista area of Los Angeles.

In addition, Los Angeles Police Department Officer Annie Hernandez told City News Service that investigators obtained a warrant for a blood draw from Heche.

Over the last few days, a new episode of Heche’s podcast “Better Together” with her co-host Heather Duffy was released, which showed the actress slurring her speech.

Erroneous reports said that the podcast which dropped on Friday, was also recorded that day, and that Heche had been drinking prior to her accident during the show.  However, it has come to light that Heche taped that episode last Tuesday, not the day of the crash.

Share your thoughts and prayers for Anne as we continue to monitor and update the situation on the film and TV star, via the comment section below.

‘That’s A Wrap’ For Dynasty’s Elizabeth Gillies & Adam Huber As They Share Farewells

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
