RATINGS: Y&R Shows Gains During Dr. Anderson's Death! B&B Solid As Quinn Manipulates Liam!

It was CBS Daytime that showed its strength during the latest ratings period of February 8th-12th.  In the lead and gaining the most viewers for the week was The Young and the Restless adding +142,000 more than any other daytime drama.  That brought their total viewer number up over the 5 million mark once again.  The show was also up in every female demo category: 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54, where it performed extremely well adding +80,000 in total viewers for the category.

In story, it was the February 8th and 9th episodes that drew the most viewers, and that centered around Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon (Sharon Case) finally realizing the identity of Dr. Anderson (Elizabeth Bogush) and heading to Fairview to confront her.  Only when they got there, the evil doc had a knife to the back and was killed.  As  the audience learned Patty (Stacy Haiduk) Williams killed her psychiatrist, and is the only person alive that viewers know of that holds the secret that Sandy Allen AKA Dr. Anderson gave Sage’s (Kelly Sullivan) baby to Sharon (Sharon Case)!

As for CBS The Bold and the Beautiful, they also had a strong week gaining +95,000 total viewers for the ratings period which added to their weekly average of 3,738,000.  B&B continued to unspool the story of Quinn’s (Rena Sofer) machinations, as she literally has an amnesiac Liam (Scott Clifton) believing he is a man named Adam, and that they are a couple   She apparently is sleeping with the guy, or getting quite cozy, even though she despises him so much!  But this is all part of Quinn’s master plan to keep Liam occupied and away from Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood).  Now Steffy believes Liam no longer wants her, or loves her, so Quinn is making sure her son Wyatt (Darin Brooks) has time to woo Steffy.  It’s twisted Quinn logic at her best!

ABC’s General Hospital saw a slight uptick in viewers adding +39,000 eyeballs for the week making their total viewer average 3,024,000.  However, GH lost viewers in all three key women’s demo categories.  And as for Days of our Lives, they were the only soap opera to lose total viewers for the week with – 56,000,  and then coming in at an average of 2,511,000, plus losing the most viewers across the board in all key demographic categories.  To check the entire ratings picture via SON click here.

A killing will bring in viewers..
Dr, Anderson’s death brought in viewers..
Fans read the spoilers and only watch on the days something seems interesting to them, like a killing..
Killings bring in more absent viewers than weddings LOL

No killings on GH or B&B and they had increases. And since Dr. Anderson’s “killing” came quickly and was a bit of a surprise, don’t think that was the reason for Y&R increase. But for some like you, possibly the icing on the cake.

@Rose….Were GH to have some beneficial killings, you’d see a huge hike in the ratings! If there’s any soap screaming for at the very least a few well-chosen deaths to cull the numbers in its bloated cast, it’s this one! I’m suggesting a Dynasty-style Moldavian wedding massacre certainly wouldn’t have gone amiss at the Julian/Alexis matrimonial debacle…..there are plenty of expendable characters who shall be attending that mess of a marital event, and we both already know that absolutely nobody of consequence will emerge (permanently) scathed by the foreshadowed violence. And that’s the problem….there is this tendency by the showrunners… Read more »

I hope for brighter Days ahead…too much gloom and doom is a downer and keeping the show in 4th… it was nice to see Days do that beach location shoot…still all ratings are ok but could be better-the return of CM as Will could give the show a much needed boost…i believe Sonny knows Will is alive…he did not forget Ariana…he is helping Sami with a comatose Will who will awaken from his coma and suffering from amnesia…i know we seen Will brutally attacked by Ben and looked as dead as could be but i still say off camera a… Read more »

I don’t know why anyone is watching Quinn’s insanity. Brad Bell has written such a horrible character, I refuse to watch her anymore. She just needs to be in prison.

Lia I agree with you! I can’t believe the current storyline with crazy Quinn planning to murder brain damaged Liam! Nuts! I refuse to watch it! Brad Bell should let Quinn fall if she tries to push Liam over the cliff! It’s ridiculous the way they have to write a crazy story line just to slow down a relationship just before marriage. Crazy!

As much as I hate to admit it, Y&R has been firing on all cylinders lately. Their stories are good. The cast is throwing in majorly good performances and they have great pacing. The only disgusting story on Y&R story is Lily and Cane. I swear all those two do is bang. Period. No story. No acting. Just get under the sheets. It’s HORRIBLE. The rest is good. Phyllis and the new Billy (Jason Thompson) are killing it. Victoria and Victor together are magic each and every time. Great father and daughter portrayals. I love the show even if some… Read more »

was not surprised Y&R was up. a murder usually brings in viewers. i bet the highest rated shows were centered around the Dr. Anderson reveal and murder

viewers want to see Shick together again! we want our supercouples facing adversity and possibly reuniting!… shick, villy, hevon….not some b.s feud with victor vs some nobody villian, luca! thats why y n r s ratings are up and days are down, forced couplings like rafe/ hope and nicole / daniel doesnt work, too much dark material and no couples to root for! days is disappointing …

Thanks @su am quoting, Ken Corday : “you will not recognize Days 6 months in” that would be.. August, 2015 – January, 2016 who is responsible for this DAYS resurgence? could it be Dena Higley? or .. was it Josh Griffith… brought in to splash through the 50th anniversary… and waylay the audience Ignorance… and “fire” the much talked about and upheave all that DAYS pressed? with Dena… I’m pissed.. and OK this is not first hand… is she responsible for… the killing off of Will .. his lover.. his beloved legacy character ? the Roberts Brady crest uphold? why… Read more »

A killing might equal ratings but what’s doing it for this Y&R viewer right now are all the interwoven business stories revolving around the Newman and Abbott (and one Santori for now) feuding families. Reminiscent of the old Bill Bell Y&R.

I wish they hadn’t killed the doc off just yet, I would have liked to have seen a confrontation between her, sage, nick, sharon, & dylan, when pattie finally remembers and spills about the baby.
They could have had her run from all of them and jump out the window. SPLAT!

GH is losing viewers due to incredibly bad writing. It seems they put the cart before the donkey as far as actors and characters are concerned. The writers, both past and present, and producers focus on nabbing that prize of an actor and then once they get them, they write their character ass backwards. This is what has happened with Paul, Ava, Nina, Franco and Julian. They write these characters into a corner and the end result is that there is serious damage control transpiring and ultimately that character fails. This is currently going on with Paul Hornsby big time.… Read more »

Kristian Alfonso Bids Farewell to DAYS as Final Episode Airs Today Sharing; “Thank YOU From The Bottom Of My Heart For Welcoming Me Into Your Homes All Of These Years”

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 marks the final appearance of Kristian Alfonso’s iconic run as Hope Williams on NBC’s Days of our Lives, a role she played on and off for more than 37 years.  Make no mistake about it, Alfonso was a staple of Salem and the DAYS family since she made her debut back in 1983.

However, over the summer viewers learned she would not be returning to the show when the series began production again in September, after she was told they were planning on resting the character of Hope for five months or so.  A decision that prompted Kristian to make a decision to leave the show for good and start a new chapter in her life.

To celebrate her run and to say a thank you to everyone at the show and her enduring fans, Kristian posted a video on her Instagram account of some backstage moments through the years to the tune of “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life”.  She accompanied her post with these words of thanks to everyone that has been by her side every step of the way:  “Being today is my last airshow, I wanted to share some of my favorite memories onset & behind the scenes I hope you enjoy it.  Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me into your homes all of these years.  And making me a part of your lives #xoxo ❤️  Thank you Ken & @nbcuniversal @nbc for a #beautiful #ride . #❤️ #😘”
