RATINGS: The Young and The Restless Has Strong Week! Shows Gains In Total Viewers & Women 18-49 Demo!

The ratings are out for the week of August 18th through August 22nd, 2o14, and this time its The Young and the Restless who performed overall best from the four network daytime dramas.  Y&R gained in total viewers with +69,000 bringing its tally to 4,468,000.  That is the shows largest weekly audience since July 25th.

In addition, Y&R finally made some significant gains and headway in the all important women 18-49 demo adding +86,000, and putting some distance between them, and second place in the demo, General Hospital!  Y&R is now over 150,000 up on the ABC soap opera.  For the rating share, Y&R delivered 1.2/09 and that is the best showing since back in April of this year.

In story, looks like Nick (Joshua) putting the pieces together of who Mariah (Camryn) truly is, and Neil’s (Kristoff St. John) blindness and more, started to perk up the viewers who want to see action in the town of Genoa City!

The only other soap in the plus column in total viewers was The Bold and the Beautiful who added +61,000 and remained in second place of the four soaps, and also added viewers in the women’s 18-49 and 25-54 demo.  GH and DAYS were down in total viewers and demo categories this ratings week.  You can see the entire ratings picture courtesy of SON here.

So, what is perking your interest again these days on Y&R, that is finally showing some uptake?  Share your thoughts below!

Y&R has had some improvement in storyline: Days is still entertaining but it needs a shot in the arm and hopefully its Melissa Archer…sorry but Jordan and Rafe need to go unless things improve with them stat…lets bring back Hope and Julies bro Steve Olsen once again played by Stephan Schnezter…Steve could be a new love interest for Kate and the new resident bad boy like Nick was(older mature version)…Steve sold fake antiques when last seen in 1979…the actor seemed to be interested…in a 2013 interview he thought that a return wouldve happened 14 years ago…please Days bring him back…GH… Read more »

If they ever do a female “Dumb & Dumber” we have two leads. Maxi and “Noclulu.” Lulu is kidnapped and the first thing she asked Dumbte is how is Rocco! Secondly, why not just dial the number and tell the police they are okay and throw the phone back on the floor so that the police can trace the call and Levi wouldnt be so suspicious when he returns. No, they are gabbing away and he walks in and catches them and now they are on the run. Who cares if they ever get rescued!

I agree too. And speaking of Dumber and Dumber as well as the word “too,” Timm, did you know a sequel to that movie is coming out?
It’s called “Dumber and Dumber to.” That just cracks me up.

Timmm…y-e-s…female “Dumb & Dumber” MOST DEFINITELY!!!!! To me, Lulu is SOMEWHAT DUMB…but…Maxie is A WHOLE LOT MORE DUMBER!!!!! And, all of this is starting to make me ROOT FOR Levi (NuHaircut and all)…a TRULY SCARY THOUGHT…LOL!!!!! Timmm, most of all, you hammered it PERFECTLY ON THE HEAD with the last sentence of your posting…to which I say…as far as I’m concerned, B-O-T-H of those ditzes (Lulu and ESPECIALLY Maxie) can STAY KIDNAPPED!!!!! Oh, Well.

Take care, dude. A-C-E-S!!!!!

Y&R has been great lately. Stories are finally moving and are intriguing. The acting performances on Y&R have been amazing.

With all due respect, I must disagree. The only thing on Y&R that is keeping me interested is Mariah’s parentage. Other than that? It is a snore…JMO. I am sick of Nikki’s revisiting the bottle ,which by now is so stale. I have been watching this woman since I was 14…. That’s almost 15 years ago….and, her storylines all revolve around the bottle. She has no fortitude…you would think that after all these years she could handle any problem she encounters….her only solution is …” Cheers, down the hatch”?

LOL

my big beef with Nikki

for the love of god… what is Victor ?

what trail… trait… treat… treaty does he bare

what ensnares your Nikki?

it takes all I can bare… to wanna wallop her character and supply her with drink

at least MTS… can act out…. her own Nikki emptied out

and trials and tribulations later… it’s snore… back at the starting gate with macho Newmans

LOL

I stand ready… guarded for Nikki and Victoria

LIVE Nikki

celebrate your individualism (s)

Victors no less, nearby, cared truly

give yourself some stamina and venture yours

You must be watching reruns of old shows! Mariah is good, the bad is Jack had something on Victor when he picked up Victor’s note at Kay’s memorial but chickened out and put it back in the bowl, and the ugly is anything Winters!

It isn’t clear if you are alluding to me, Timmm…but, I agree. I did say that Mariah’s storyline is stealing the show. I might add, though, that the bridal dress scene…was it a bridal gown? Whatever…it looks like a scene right out of CRIMINAL MINDS.

GH lost 100,000 viewers and was down in all demos for the week, a week following the kidnapping of two legacy characters and the shooting of the former police commissioner. Now of course that sounds a lot more exciting than the horrible writing, production and directing actually was for all of that, but let’s go with it. The previous Thursday, 8/14, Mac is shot and Maxie and Lulu are kidnapped. The next day Friday, Aug 15, nothing followed up. We are treated to idiot Franco and Nina in an elevator, Piph and Milo pining over each other and some more… Read more »

I agree with everything you say…no continuity whatsoever, pointless filler plots that stagnate the show, and when it does get somewhat interesting it starts to go downhill with the writing and pacing like you said…and who walks a shooting victim up to the tenth floor…ridiculous…i had to bury an infant so that part of the storyline is difficult to watch as it is so i wont comment further on that…it was a boring week on GH and i was only entertained when certain actors were on but they like Anna had very little to do!!!

You are way too overly involved ….. whoa..

You seem to hate what you are watching yet you’re punishing yourself by watching it and taking note of all you hate…..
.( personally overly involved in the soaps syndrome, is a thing….

Soaps are make believe.. usually not logical .. they are soaps lol ..
— one can not make reality from fiction / not possible 🙂

Long live the soaps.. the good, bad and ugly of them is priceless!!

Well, now, su0000. I always enjoy what you write. But, I must disagree…there have been, and still are, and always will be, many psychos who make reality out of fiction. These sickos mimic fictional travesties , tragedies and butchering of human lives on a daily basis…they are out there. So, one CAN make reality out of fiction, just as one can make fiction out of reality. These two facts are intertwined…one goes hand-in-hand with the other.

Yes, soaps are make believe, but they are a specific genre of writing called Serial Drama. All of Charles Dickens’ works were first published as serial drama. Now imagine if the newspapers publishing Great Expectations as a serial, suddenly decided to throw A Christmas Carol, Oliver Twist, and Bleak House into the middle of Great Expectations, and failed to inform the readers of what they were doing. That is what FV/RC do with GH. Those of us who know from past experience how these shows should be written and produced, shouldn’t have to just settle for a comic book version… Read more »

GH50 i agree with you, the continuity is bad on this show, and the pacing too. i knew the milo and epiphany scene was more like a filler for the hour, wish got me thinking that they had to either reshoot some stuff, or delay airing other stuff like Robin and “jason” coming back. they probably thought they were going to get Billy Miller to play Jason and he bailed and they had to fill the show with filler storyline that are going nowhere. maybe they should get a co headwriter because i think RC can’t handle writing for this… Read more »

LOL I do take exception to the rule… that , how dare they, diss fans and audience alike… that, when Mac was shot… i expected it to be the shot heard ’round the world I was crying… and deflated.. the next day and after that… that it took that LONG to see him finally showing up at the hosp.

Gh has no follow up with the Victor Cassadine story. We get more Sabrina, Nina, and Franco. They wonder why the ratings tanks. I think they really don’t care unless the show hits lows again like it did last year.

Y&R has gotten better–a lot better. Some folks were complaining because Mariah turned out to be Cassie’s twin sister. They were feeling let down because it was so predictable. I don’t know where folks got the idea that good story telling always has to yield forth a great surprise (see plot devices, ie GH’s Ron Carlivati) because it doesn’t. Mariah being Cassie’s twin was actually a viable explanation to why they are each other’s doubles. The important thing is there was some solid character driven writing which followed through with the reveal not to mention some damned fine acting by… Read more »

My main complaint about Y&R is the utter waste of Tristan Rogers, When he is on the small screen, he lights up the joint just by allowing his natural, easy-going charisma and sense of humor to come through. The problem is they have yet to give this man a storyline worthy of his talent. How many times must we see him meet up in secret with some shady loan shark in which Colin delivers the same old line,”I will have the money for you soon but do not involve my family”? Or to Cane,”I’m fine, son. Don’t worry about me,… Read more »

Harry,
your writing is just fine.. Mine is written with an accent lol
Americans don’t speak and write in Queens English, these days..
Proper english went out decades ago (altho spoken and written by those that need to be proper)
We proudly speak ”American” and that is whatever is spoken/written ..

Be proud to speak American!! we rock !!

and- I agree!
Tristan should be back on GH . he kicked ass being Scorpio..
Now at Y&R he is Jills old Duffus and that is sad to see the great Scorpio being degraded 🙁 ..

Harry….TR’s biggest problem is that he is in the wrong fictional location!!!!!….”Colin” needs to bid “Genoa City” adieu once and for all, so that “Robert” can return from “Wisconsin” to “Port Chuck” where his sparkling, cheeky personality can shine for all to see. GH is just crying out for his presence!

C’mon guys..
Ratings are up and down up and down, a rollercoaster..
always have been and will be… no big deal if one goes up and one goes down (unless by a million) That is what ratings do, go up and down LOL 🙂
I do not give ratings any hoopla..

The only thing I care about is;
If I like my soap and enjoy it.. If it has only a 100 viewers it wouldn’t matter as long as I liked watching it 🙂

(next week the ratings will switch and go up and down like the always.. )

I love Roger Howarth. He has to be embarrassed to be Franco. It is a horrible character that is not clicking with viewers. I love Michelle Stafford. She is great and she will find her way. Roger needs a reboot. GH fans would not be pissed if you turn him into Stephan Cassadine. Its a soap, we wont care. Michelle needs to act with people on her level. On Y&R she acted with Peter Bergman. He is a legend! On GH Michele acts with Silas, Sam, and Rosalie. You see her character come to life when her and Roger were… Read more »

Sorry, but this GH fan would be pissed if Roger Howarth turned into Stefan Cassidine. There are still many fans who will only except a return of Stephen Nichols in the role of Stefan. There are other Cassadines out there if Roger needed to be turned into another character. I get what your saying about Franco, but frankly switching Roger around from character to character over and over would most likely be frustrating… both for him and his fans.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Oh listen, I would love Stephen Nichols back first. I just dont know if he is interested in reprising the role? There was a rumor almost two years ago of a new Cassadine coming to Port Charles named Valentine, oddly around February 2013 but it never happened. Cast Roger as this new Cassadine.

KMB
Guest
KMB

That would definitely make more sense. Stefan is Nikolas’ older uncle. The rumor is still out there that someday it might be revealed that Stefan is really Nikolas’ father. Since Roger Howarth and Tyler Christopher are only about four years apart, I couldn’t picture Roger playing Tyler’s father, lol. So yes, making Roger another Cassadine or even a member of another Port Charles family would work out much better. In the mean time, I do hope for a return someday of Stephen Nichols….He would really stir up the Cassadines. 🙂

lol Roger Howarth/Franco is awesome!! The old bones from OLTL can let Todd go,Todd is dead and gone, move on peoples. Roger Howarth is an actor and his Franco is great!! Love Franco .. Roger Howarth is legended as a soap actor, none better.. Franco will have his 180 turn, wait for it.. I hope he goes ballistic and kills Robin!! GH is unique.. and it has a special kind of audience.. The GH fans are colorful people with big opinions and we are not passive.. It takes a certain type of person to see the beauty of GH, yah!… Read more »

I didnt watch OLTL. Franco to me, can be redeemable but his character is boring. Redeeming the James Franco portrayal or Franco is tough because we liked him as an unpredictable psycho. Its like Victor Cassadine. His character is interesting because he is an evil Cassadine. If you redeemed Victor and had Victor dressed as Santa at the GH storytelling event, he would be boring. Franco’s only hope is to live on the edge with Nina.

I think some of these ratings have to come from strong performances from Ray Price who plays Ian Ward. I was lucky this weekend to meet him at Fan Expo where he was a guest . Since it’s a sci-fi/fantasy show I think he was mainly there for RoboCop, but I’ve enjoyed him in many roles including 24 and Mad Men. Was able to have a nice chat with him and tell him he’s been really, really bad on Y&R. He was very nice and just laughed. Had to hold myself back from asking him what comes next. And he… Read more »

I am happy to see Y and R’s increase in ratings. They have turned the show around in some of the storylines. It is definitely an improvement and I think the writers are finding there balance in their stride. I like the mix of vets and newbies.

Y&R may have had a strong week (or whatever) in terms of ratings, but, in terms of OVERALL storytelling????? H-A!!!!! I’m N-O-T buying it. No. I will say this, though: In terms of the Y&R character canvas (or whatever), here is what I think are the show’s current strengths:
1. Anita
2. Esther
3. Gloria
4. Jack
5. Jill
6. Kelly
7. Kevin
8. Lauren
9. Mariah
10. Mark (aka that Detective Harding dude)
11. Michael
12. Stitch
13. Traci
As for the rest of them (character-wise)…never mind.

Peace.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.

Victoria Konefal Will Be Back On Days of our Lives

This week Days of our Lives viewers saw the exit of both Theo (Cameron Johnson) and Ciara (Victoria Konefal), much to the chagrin of Cin fans everywhere! But hold on! Days head writer, Ron Carlivati revealed that Victoria Konefal will be back on-screen this summer on the NBC soap opera.

In an interview with Soap Opera Digest, Carlivati revealed: “From the moment we were coming to that point and we knew Ciara was going to exit town with Theo, we were immediately pursuing the next chapter with Victoria: When would she be available or willing to come back, and when could we tell the next chapter because I knew that would feel unfinished and be unsatisfying to a lot of people. So that’s why I’m happy to announce here that Ciara is coming back and we are going to tell that next chapter of the story and hopefully, this time, the audience will get the payoff that they’re looking for and hoping for.”

And as to just how long will Konefal who chose to go on recurring status with the show be back for her summer run, Carlivati shared: “At this point, and I can’t speak for Victoria and I can’t speak for the show, and this is not an official announcement in any capacity, but I will say at this point, there is not an end date. We are working with Victoria to keep the story going and keep Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) and Ciara’s love story alive.”

Cin fans should note that Carlivati added, “I would encourage the audience to remember that they (Cin) have an important anniversary coming up this summer that may figure into their story, so she will be back sooner than you know.”

So, happy to know there will be more of Ben and Ciara? Where you upset to see Ciara exit the canvas with Theo? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
