The ratings are out for the week of October 6th through October 10th, and ultimately The Young and the Restless bested the rest of the network daytime dramas for the ratings period, in that they were the only soap to show gains in total viewers and in every key demo!

The Young and the Restless gained +172,000 viewers for the week, bringing their total viewers to 4,740,000, as compared to General Hospital, which saw a loss of -265,000 for the week, bringing their total viewer count to below 3 million again with 2,776,000.  The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives only lost – 31,000 and -10,000 viewers, respectively.

The number one soap opera also saw gains in all key women’s demos: 18-34, 18-49, and 25-54.  And the week was most watched beginning on the Monday, October 6th episode as Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) walked in to Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon’s (Sharon Case) wedding spoiling the nuptials of Shick, and letting all of Genoa City that she is out of her coma!  This sent shockwaves through Genoa City and the beginnings of the subsequent fallout played throughout the week.  You can view the entire ratings picture via SON here.

What do you think of Y&R’s performance? Were you watching the CBS Daytime drama during the ratings week discussed?  What soap opera is captivating you the most right now?  Let us know!

More Nina, Franco and Nathan please…or maybe not. A 265,000 decline in one week is big, especially considering that the other soaps pretty much maintained their numbers and since GH has been close to 3 million viewers since Labor Day.

If it is due to a Nielsen error that was over reporting GH for months now being rectified, then it means that people haven’t been into Nina and Franco for a while. If that isn’t a factor, then it means that a number of people just decided they had enough.

Loved Y&R last week. GH fell big because of the neilsen error. Not surprised of GH collapse. The show is awful. Can’t stand the Nina and Franco nonsense. Next week we’ll see how Days did with EJ’s death fallout.

This is my favorite time of the year for soap watching– I find the lead up to November sweeps usually means the soaps are pulling out all the stops to capture big ratings for the sweeps period. After a long dull summer of mostly filler story lines, these few weeks are jammed packed with content. I’m in soap lover heaven until American Thanksgiving, when everything winds down again, so I’m enjoying all four soaps right now–

Sweeps is amazing Mary SF. The thing with GH though, is that they have 50 stories running at once all year long! But they have been doing well with sweeps, so hopefully this November will repeat.

Interesting that the highest ratings for the week were not on Monday for Shick’s wedding but on Tuesday and Thursday

I tuned in just to see Gina Tognoni, I’m not a regular viewer. but loved her on One Life to Live. She is such solid actress, playing a completely different kind of character. Y&R did it right…Phyllis made a grand, shocking entrance. Meanwhile, I’m five days behind on GH because Sam puts me to sleep and Nina makes me irritated.

She appeared on both GL & OLTL – she worked with JFP on OLTL.

Sorry, carol…but Gina Tognoni was also part of the OLTL cast, she played Kelly Cramer. So, Louisa is 100% right .

I am a regular viewer…since I was a young teen. Y&R has always been my favorite soap. However, the past year has been torturous watching for me…but, I faithfully kept watching. I must say that since Gina joined the cast, Y&R is starting to pick up tempo.
I hope you will watch Y&R regularly from now on, Louisa.

Thanks CeeCee. I may start watching regularly now. I do love Gina! I’m a long-time ABC soap fan but recently started watching Days and I am loving it! I am very disappointed in GH of late.

Hi Judy ox! I don’t remember all those things because I started watching DAYS in 1984. I do know of them, so I hear you loud and clear! The Doctors ended a couple years before I started watching DAYS and I never watched Another World, but I did google Steve and Alice and realized they ended their popular run on Another World a few years before I discovered DAYS, where Doug and Julie were a supercouple, but on their way out as I was getting to know them. I don’t get Retro TV, but you could have luck finding The… Read more »

Im the reason GHs ratings fell…i had a garage sale that week and my customers peaked around that hour GH is on…so many showed up at 2pm they had to take turns getting in my garage…Halloween week might push GH back over that 3 mill. mark so ill postpone my 50% off sale to the first week in Nov. so GH can climb the ratings once again…my sincere apology for causing the decrease…lol

Lady Gina is doing a rivetting job with Phyllis…I am literally proud of her artistry…loving Mr. Bergman’s new energy, Cadie McLain always & forever…and yes, Meredith Baxter…can’t wait for Sally Kellerman…keep it coming!

There is something slightly different about the soap with the introduction of NUPhyllis! A dynamic NO HOLDS BAR female lead is back in action!! Lets hope that when she discovers her whiny lil spawn is married and to a gun toting kidnapper and cop shooter that we see the old BITCH in action! No other character comes close to the fierceness of Phyllis. But sadly, we have Sharon mopping around with most of her dialogue being “THE SECRET. Phyllis knows the secret!”. Could someone in her family actually have an argument with her about this search?! Not NuCassie, but just… Read more »

I agree, Paul. The bitch is back and she’s back with a mission….if only she knew what that mission was. But Gina owns this role already. Usually it takes time for me to warm up to a recast but not this time. She is a force of nature.
Yes, tired of the “secret” too.

“Y & R” has been very good the past few weeks – still some kinks to be worked out (get rid of Abby and finish up with the Ian Ward storyline please!!), but it has been quite watchable.

Does anyone know what will become of co-headwriters Shelly Altman & Jean Passanante once Chuck Pratt assumes the HW position? Are they leaving or are they already gone?

Gina seems to be getting into the groove fairly quickly. She is a good actress and I think what helps is the character was off camera for quite sometime and it helped the fans accept that Michelle is not coming back so lets delete her portrayal and move on. It worked. I see Michelle on GH now and I swear I think of her as Nina now and she is knocking it out of the park! Soaps are holding up. Wouldnt it be so cool if ABC or NBC had the guts to start a brand new daytime soap?

CeeCee

Yes, with all the OLTL cast, Timmm…I miss every single one of those characters.

Y&R is off life support finally. Who would have thought JFP would be the show runner if/when this happened. Gina is an amazing professional. She has done a superb job of making Phyllis her own. Meanwhile, Cane and Neal walking in on Devon and Hillary had me almost spitting out my food from shock and laughter. Neal is such a pathetically needy man, like Jack. Neither one of them can live without having a wife. Always falling in love and getting married. Now Neal is not only a blind dimwit, but he’s literally blind! Maybe with his newly developed non-sight… Read more »

Y&R built up phyllis return with bursting into the wedding..
and in Y&R tradition, not being able to create gripping drama, it failed..

—– Phyllis stands in the doorway takes a step and falls on her face.. over..

((what kinda crap drama is that aahaa shees.. Only on Y&R..(fail …

The only thing saving this storyline right now is Gina’s performance! She IS Phyllis. The entrance was dramatic but nothing occurred afterwards. Y&R needs to take a closer look at how Days does their wedding reveals. Y&R needs to start dropping bombs to bring the drama. They have way too many secrets that keep dragging out to no end.

lovn my y n r lately. Nov sweeps should be even bigger with Adams return!
my only gripe is if Mr Pratt is reading this please bring back my last two fav characters Leslie and Tyler !!!! Avery s busy with her two latest love intrests and michael s having a medical crisis so have Leslie help Adam with his legal troubles again surronding delias death! and bring tyler on young and restless as he was when he first came on the show!

Mike Manning On His DAYS Departure: “Thank You to NBC, to Everyone Involved, and Most of All to the Fans That Were Along for the Ride With This Crazy Character.”

Now it’s the end of the line for Charlie on Days of our Lives, his portrayer Mike Manning took to his Instagram for some parting words of his time in Salem playing this very bad dude.

As Days fans know, many people wanted Charlie dead, and now he is! Thus begins a good old fashioned soap murder mystery on the long-running NBC soap opera, the question now is, who ultimately did the deed?

After getting a copy of the latest Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, which features, “Who Killed Charlie?” on the cover, Manning shared in a post on Friday: Everybody has a motive to want this guy dead.” 😂 Not exactly how I pictured my first soap magazine cover, but at least we’re having a good time with it. It’s been fun Salem. I’ll love you all forever. ✌🏼💙. Thank you to NBC, to everyone involved, and most of all to the fans that were along for the ride w/ this crazy character. You’re amazing. I’ll always be grateful for you.  Excited to share what’s next as soon as I can.   Arrivederci. -Charlie/Mike”

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as we know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
