RATINGS: Y&R and B&B Show Solid Gains In Total Viewers!

Courtesy/CBS

Finally, some good news for the recent doldrums in the summer of 2017 daytime drama ratings for the week of July 3rd through the 7th.

CBS Daytime’s one-two combo of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful finally gained back a good chunk of weekly viewership adding +211,000 and + 157,000 total viewers, respectively.  While both shows are still off the pace of this same time last year, perhaps “The Summer of Sheila” soaps hottest current storyline on B&B will keep things sizzling upward for the sister soaps through the dog days of August into the fall.  Both Y&R and B&B also showed gains in the key womens 18-49 and 18-34 demo.

Courtesy/CBS

Over at General Hospital, the series did gain in total viewers also for the week at +21,000 , and made some small gains in the 18-34 demo.  GH, as the other soaps previously mentioned, are off the pace of last year at this time.

As for NBC’s Days of our Lives, looks like we only have a few weeks left in the ratings of shows not written by new head writer Ron Carlivati.  His episodes begin to air this week on July 19th.  DAYS came in -12,000 for the week in their total viewer tally, but stayed on pace to where they were last year at this time.  The soap did gain some viewers in the 18-34 demo.

For the life of me i dont understand how y n r is not only gaining viewers but how its not hemmoraging for dear life. yes , characters and stories are more authentic but geez …can we get some drama?.. nikki and her piano recital is supposed to be must-see?!!! its so lame and dreadfully boring. y n r needs a serious villian like shelia over at sister soap b n b!.. now thats exciting!! i personally have been loving days especially the tripp , kayla and steve story as well as eric and nicole coming back to eachother. i… Read more »

I sadly must agree, Damien. I never imagined FF’ing thru half of Y&R as I have been lately. That Cane/Juliet debacle was unforgivable. Meanwhile, creepy Billy just sails along like Teflon. And don’t get me started on Charlie, Mattie, Reed, Ravi. And then letting Greg Rikaart go is beyond reasoning. I do like that Zack character Abby is seeing. He’s really hot, but you can tell he’s going to be a creep, so there goes that.

You hit ALL the points! But I think Zack is weak. He will turn out to be a Ryder type character! Take Tessa with him and kill them off!

You haven’t even seen Ron’s writing yet on days. It starts this week. Days has been pathetic at the very least through Josh and ending with Dena. Ron has much to do to bring this show out of the drain.

I liked the Nikki recital both for her piano playing and the new gal singing was great, too. Also the costumes and having the seats filled reminded me of the old days of soaps when they had bigger budgets, I guess. Nowdays, whenever there is a big trial, you never see a jury and the courtroom is never filled. It was odd, I thought, only the 2 songs performed, but I guess it is very expensive to perform songs on tv? I agree Y&R has been a tad boring and hope the pace/drama picks up soon. Bold and Beautiful has… Read more »

Oh my goodness the lead-up to the stupid piano recital was what, 18 weeks? And when the climax is….a piano recital, how can anybody care? Was there ever any doubt that Nikki would be fine?

And Shillary is bad enough, but those twins of Cane and whats her name have got to be the worst “actors” in the history of television.

I know, right, damien? The worst storylines ever!!!!!! I am still not sure Cane is the father, albeit I had predicted a pregnancy, as a joke, weeks ago. LOL. I despise Cane, but, I have a feeling that somehow, he will end up not being the father……I want he to be the father so much, I can taste it. Karma is in progress. So, where is this story going? If Juliet was solely after money, then she should be gone already. Why linger….waiting for the other shoe to fall? Everytime I see the twins, my heart sinks into my stomach;… Read more »

Overall, I am enjoying Y&R more than I have in nearly a decade but there are a few areas where the show could make some changes. I also hope Cane is the baby daddy because he deserves his comeuppance for setting everything in motion that led to Juliet’s lawsuit but I think that the big reveal will be that Jordan and Juliet are running a scam together and Jordan is really the father. Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mr. Sato turned out to be Juliet’s daddy and the Tokyo deal is part of a bigger scheme. The Billy/Phyllis pairing… Read more »

@Alan. Wow, Alan…Jordan is the father? Love it !!!! Your posts;, your reasoning …. simply amazing!!!! Good show, Alan. I did mention that I suspect Cane not to be the Daddy, as well. Too easy….too fast. And, my thought went to that Soto guy, too. We all know soaps have perfected the art of fudging lab results. LOL. But, as yourself, I am glad Cane is getting his just desserts. I said this before, and not because I am a Billy fan, because I am not; but, Cane lacks integrity. No matter how much one resents or despises another; there… Read more »

Great post, Alan! I am really enjoying Y&R too. I don’t get the Tessa hate! The actress is pretty, she can act and boy can she sing! I think she adds a lot the canvas. I loved the shared moment which transpired between Mariah and Tessa today. Too often soaps force feed a gay and lesbian story to fit their agenda but that lingering and meaningful look those two shared felt real, natural and moreover, those two have chemistry. I think Tessa adds a lot the canvas. There’s a lot to love about Y&R which includes Jack’s friendship with Nikki.… Read more »

Note the date—– Nielsen adds Web viewers to its TV ratings Updated 10:19 AM ET, Tue October 29, 2013 <—- This is the latest attempt by Nielsen to catch up with current digital-media technology. Earlier this month, the company announced it was launching Twitter TV ratings, tracking the number of people tweeting about a show and how many people were reading those tweets. In a sign of our increasingly connected age, the Nielsen Company will finally add streaming viewers to its influential ratings of who's watching what on TV.

Going against the tide here, I have been enjoying Y&R very much lately. I am not invested in any couple, but i’ve felt that the Lane storyline with Juliet, Victoria and Billy has been well written and well acted. I really have been watching for that storyline alone, and now I’m interested in what Juliet’s story is with the baby, because I’m sure that it isn’t Cane’s. I’m also interested in finding out what Hillary is going to do with the Newmans and with Juliet. Some stories move too slow, and I’m not very interested in some of the new… Read more »

Yes, Beth, I agree about Juliet’s baby. How many times are people going to take other people’s word on paternity results? Cane may as well wear a T-shirt with “CHUMP” written on it! My trouble is that I like the actress playing Juliet (more than Lily, actually), but they’re boxing her into the Hillary corner and there’s not much wiggle room there. And how I wish Kevin/Greg were staying!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Well, Beth….if we think we know Hilary the way we do, you know she will air the heated ( and then some) exchange between the Newmans.
Hilary is very daring and acts before she thinks. Victor will chew her and her entourage up and spit them out.
But, even if she does nothing, there is the chance her assistant, the cameraman, will go behind her back and air it himself. I guess that’s a more ‘soapy’ way of doing it. LOL.

I am disappointed in YR after watching so many years and having to suffer through the Pratt wrtiing I find its just as disappointing for me ..My favs Lauren/Michael are slowly being desimated Fen is gone, now Kevin will be gone..and we rarely see Lauren and Michael alone or even at events..so you know what I finally am throwing in the towel..to a show i at one time could nol wait to watch..Last day for me was Michaels goodbye to Kevin

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

Amen, Dee. Since when would Kevin not say goodbye to Lauren? Doesn’t even fit the character. And let’s bring back Fen, hopefully with Max Ehrich in the role. With Kevin gone and Scott being so unrelatable (and scuzzy), we’re in need of new eye candy. Zack is really hot, but seems like he’s a creep. Bring back the Baldwins and back-burner the Ashby clan, especially the talentless twins.

Your loss. The show has been great- the best, lately, and Ms. Brown is a delightful and talented addition. If it is not ok to judge others by their sexual orientation or gender identity or race or documented status-why ok if they are republican? I don’t agree with a lot of people’s politics, but I still enjoy their work.

Anyone remember when Lucille Ball almost had her career ruined because she had registered as a communist to please her grandfather. Like they said at the hearing, even her hair wasn’t really red. Remember actors living in total fear of their sexual preference being revealed and having their career destroyed. There are conservative actors working now that stay in the closet or keep a very low profile when it comes to expressing their views for fear of having their careers come to an end. I am not promoting communism or conservative viewpoints-what I think is that it is seeming that… Read more »

Here, here, Maureen!!! I’ve really been trying not to make political comments as of late, since this is, after all, a soap opera website, but then there are others of opposite views who simply won’t give it a break. At least April managed to voice her displeasure in a single sentence, so I’ll give her credit for that minor consideration to the rest of us. The more typical examples are long-winded anti-Trump screeds, along with corresponding doom-and-gloom echo chamber chatter that parrots the same complaints! Anyway, welcome back!

There is a big divide in politics…the Trump administration has caused more havoc in this country than in any recent years. Polarized is an understatement. I don’t think it’s “McCarthyism” if a viewer is so turned off by a person’s politics that he/she won’t watch the person. I didn’t and won’t watch Mel Gibson for his anti-semitic views. To each his own… There are a few soap actors who don’t share my views. Personally? I’m not going to boycott the show or stop watching. If it was a one woman/man show…then, yes, I would.

How magnanimous. Yet if anyone, anywhere dares to express their disdain or dislike for the fictional Alexis or her portrayer- you go ballistic with personal attacks on their intelligence, comprehension- ad nauseum. So it is ok to express an opinion when it is in line with your set of rules and beliefs and totally unacceptable when they are not. Ok then.

I regret apologizing to you awhile back. Not that you ever offered up a well-deserved apology for your hateful remarks. Several others also tried to make peace with you- Maureen apologized and Gary too. You never accepted nor returned any apology even though you instigated a big attack on multiple people on here.

Well, I’ve attacked Alexis and joked about someone alerting Geraldo Rivera that Jimmy Hoffa could be found in the great abyss Alexis calls a cleavage. Rebecca took umbrage with my saying so and did so in a respectful, albeit humorous manner. She thought I was being an ageist and I can see why she thought such a thing. Honestly, I think I really was coming off being kind of an ageist so I can understand why she thought so.

That Maya Angelo quote has been used time and time again to describe the current president. Donald Trump showed us who he was when he mocked and imitated a disabled man, called John McCain a loser, insulted a grieving Gold Star family and said on tape that he liked to grab women by their private parts and he can get away with it because he’s a celebrity (a reality star).
He showed us who he was and seventy-four percent of Americans believed him.

Never liked Sheila and my dislike of her goes way before the two words President Trump was even a glint in our country’s eyes. Shelia is too over-the-top cartoon villain, like a female Freddy Kruger who keeps coming back
I just pray that she doesn’t come to Genoa City as they have enough female loony tunes to populate a small village.
Nope, never liked Sheila and it has nothing to do with politics.

This is all April wrote to provoke all the snowflakes to fall? Gosh, some people are kind of thin skinned on this subject. That really wasn’t bad.
On the subject of Sheila, I really liked her on Y&R years ago but they made her storyline and character ridiculous. It sounds like she’s working well on B&B and I am all for anything which increases ratings regardless of their political affiliation.

So…Rose of the longer paragraph. I’m assuming that’s “you.” LOL. You better not leave…okay, you can get up from your Thanksgiving table if you must but DO NOT leave this site! Ya hear me? Kinder hearts will prevail… 🙂

are you not watching, Rose? It has been really good, I think. I love the crazies, and Sheila and Quinn- I hope they spring Deacon but his pic is not in opening credits anymore so am guessing they dumped him? He came over from GH but whole time at Bold never really was on much or anything good to do. I like the new Spectras, too. What have you been watching? I want to see the new Dynasty in the fall but doubting as good as the original.

I was not familiar with the actress or the character, whom I understand has quite a history I guess on Bold and Y&R. First, I adore Deacon and assume he is no longer on the show at all since his picture is absent from the credits. He seemed to be on contract for quite some time since he left GH and guess he had been unhappy with his storyline on GH but his storyline on Bold did not seem good to me at all and then he was just gone and then back to shoot Quinn- I did love when… Read more »

My only issue with Y&R nowadays is the pacing is very uneven— for example we go months it seem with Cane trying to keep his hook up with Juliet a secret and then the reveal happened so fast, and the reactions so blah– it wasn’t even worth all the build up. The same thing as someone mentioned about this concert– we really didn’t need so much build up– but I do like the fact this writing team at least remembered Nikki has MS — kudos for that one Over on B&B—perhaps the show is doing better because they finally gave… Read more »

As it should be, these numbers are what we though they would be. Always good to see higher numbers but when you look at the “Final Four”, the only shot at improving is trying to take the #2 spot. It wont happen with GH unless they clean house. DAYS could easily pass GH with their new writer by the end of the year. So what gives if you love GH? #1 The head of GH is a cancer. He is in bed with someone and Frank does what he wants! #2 The writers kind of suck. They write this “Man… Read more »

GH has lost its soul because it has no long term person to shepherd it like the other DT dramas do and even Mal Young who hasn’t been around long seems more interested in his show thriving than FV ever did.

@JMER….I feel as though the GH of today is nothing more than a stubborn social experiment designed to make the current program as unrecognizable as possible from the traditional version. For too long, the emphasis has been on constant change simply for the sake of it, with unpalatable newbies and vet gets from other soaps who have come at the hefty expense of losing beloved legacy characters along with much of the show’s extensive historical perspective because there is nobody remaining in charge who has a true affection and appreciation for the soap it once was….I’m not asserting that those… Read more »

hi Timmm
the one and only problem with soaps are the writers.
and, until NEW YOUNGER writers are brought in to take the soaps out of the 80’s and bring them into the 21st century media they will not and can not improve.

It will be the same old stories used over and over and over again..

the reason we know what is going to happen is– we have been there done that 100000 times!

Hey, T,
Offtrack here, but I know you like Abby/Melissa O.
Did you notice her little “bump”? A baby!! I think it is made more obvious for the fact that she is so slender. How will “they” fit her pregnancy into her story? Maybe she and Scott will succumb to the sexual tension I have sensed between them from the get-go. Too soapy to let it slide, writers. Do it !! LOL.
And, she looked so beautiful today with that do….windblown and all.
Love the hairstyle…fits her well.

She had her first baby and I believe it was during colder weather so it wasnt much of an issue. This time, maybe a little but she is so thin it probably wont be an issue!

She has the Jessica Alba vibe going for her. YUM!

I love Y&R now and I applaud the writing team for taking time to resolve the stories they inherited and giving nods to history of characters. Love (!!!) the recalibrated Sharon and the new direction for Phyllis. I will say characters’ ages seem to be forgotten. I like Hilary as the resident bad girl who occasionally redeems herself, as good bad girls must do. I do not like losing Kevin and Chole but that whole story was a mess when they got it and sadly, the characters became expendable. There is more to Tessa and company than we know and… Read more »

Celia
Guest

Yes, Iakovos. Most of the stories are slowly but surely coming to some resolve.
But, these new, out-of-this-worl stories don’t offer any entertainment or interest.
As you point out, the age of these characters; namely, Gina, Lily and the twins do not mesh.
It was bad enough to have Gina as Phyllis be Daniel’s mother; then TPTB had to age the twins when Lily looks like their sister, not mother.

Kimberlin Brown knew full well she might never work again on tv, yet she spoke at the republican convention because as a businesswoman, she felt Trump might be more supportive of businesses-like her avocado farm.

Ive been watching ynr and bnb on my own since 1993. Both shows were incredible back then and through the 2000’s. Bnb need Taylor back in the mix but this time back with a Stephanie Forrestsr type of presence. Lately, ynr has been very boring. I would love to see some 90’s stories revisited. Let us see Lauren and Sheila face off again if not Lauren and Sheila then maybe another strong feud. I do not watch Dsys or GH but with only four soaps left it’s no longer a competition but rather surviving.

He stood up to Trump, unlike many other Republicans. Years ago, when politics was not so polarized, he was able to reach across the isle and negotiate with Democrats like Tip O’Neil and Edward Kennedy. This is what we need right now.

Peter Reckell Reflects On His Time As DAYS Iconic Bo Brady, Life In New Zealand & Christmas Music Project

Last week, Days of our Lives  turned 55-years young, and the historic long-running NBC daytime drama series has been home to some of the most memorable stars and characters of the soap opera genre, perhaps none more so than anti-hero Bo Brady played by Peter Reckell.

Reckell who appeared on the show for several runs that lasted over four decades, premiered as Bo back in 1983.  He then stayed through 1987, came back from 1990 to 1992, again from 1995 to 2012, and back again in 2015 during DAYS 50th anniversary and to wrap his run as Bo, when the character was killed-off, after Reckell made it clear that he wanted to give the audience closure for the character.  He later made another return in 2016 to help the character of Hope (Kristian Alfonso) move on with her life.  Hard to believe for all of those heart-tugging performances, Peter was nominated only once for a Daytime Emmy.

Photo: JPI

In this candid, deeply personal and enlightening new interview for the Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube, Reckell opens up as to: what led to many of the decisions he made throughout his time as Bo, how he helped craft the role from the start, the accident that almost took his life, how he handled all the fame that came his way as part of the Bo and Hope supercouple pairing, and how two women in the cast; the late Frances Reid (Alice) and Peggy McCay (Caroline) made lasting impressions on him that he will carrying with him for the rest of his life.

Photo: JPI

What would Peter say if somehow DAYS wanted him back and Bo was actually alive and well?  Find out as Peter weighs-in and wishes his former show a happy anniversary  In addition, he even shares how he felt when Robert Kelker-Kelly took over the role of Bo when he decided to leave the show at one point, and his time playing Johnny on primetime’s Knots Landing.

Photo: JPI

Reckell has moved his family to New Zealand, and this conversation was conducted from his home.  Peter is married to singer/songwriter/producer Kelly Moneymaker and the couple have a daughter, Loden.   It was not wanting to miss the moments of his daughter’s life growing up that has been much of the impetus for some of Peter’s career choices.

Photo: BlueAeris

With Christmastime approaching, Kelly and Peter are part of a brand new Christmas LP entitled Joy.  The album is now available for download on Spotify, Apple Music and major music streaming platforms.

In an exclusive during the interview, we give fans a sneak peek of Peter’s new music video for “Under the Mistletoe”, the song he sings that appears on Joy, which was written by his wife.  For more on the album project visit BlueAegis.com
