The Young and the Restless Delivers Largest Weekly Audience Since March!

News today via CBS is that the number one soap opera The Young and the Restless had a very strong ratings week November 3rd through the 7th!  In fact, the show garnered its largest weekly audience since March of his year, and daytime’s top drama was up in week-to-week digits in all key women demographics!

So what attributed to the ratings surge? There was the highly-anticipated debut of Justin Hartley as the bandaged Adam Newman on the November 5th episode of the sudser!  And in addition, this was the week where Sharon (Sharon Case) and Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) revisited the stairwell, and the truth came out that Nick (Joshua Morrow) is the true bio-dad of Summer (Hunter King), not Jack (Peter Bergman) …  and that Sharon switched the paternity tests!

For the week, Y&R averaged 4.98 million viewers, up +6% from the prior week (from 4.71m) and its largest audience since the week ending March 7.  Among key women demographics, it was up +5% in women 25-54 (2.0/13 from 1.9/12), +8% in women 18-49 (1.3/09 from 1.2/09) and +17% in women 18-34 (0.7/06 from 0.6/05).

So, was last week’s Y&R must-see TV for you?  What do you think of the ratings number?  Do you think the show will continue to stay strong with its major upcoming storylines?  Weigh-in below!

Goes to show you just how much Y&R is on the right track and has been for quite some time; CBS and Sony are stupid to attempt to change their regime at this point, because it’s the best the series has been in over ten years time now.

I completely agree. I find myself watching every day and enjoying the characterisations. The dialogue is even sometimes ok:)

I basically watch everyday, but I was excited to see Justin. Hope to see more of him (i.e., take of the bandages and get him back to GC) and throw Billy out of your condo!

Sharon getting busted! I was so sick of Shick and their happy little family after watching what Sharon did Summer and Phyllis. I loved that Nick dumped her and Phyllis got her revenge by outing her in front of Nick.

Yup, MM left Y and R and they are really going down the drain, NOT. Anticipation to see the new Adam and other stories put the show right at 5 MILLION viewers. All his fans who said they would never watch again didnt amount to a drop in the bucket!!

If I recall correctly MM himself asked his fans to be nice and to be fair with the new Adam. Weather or not this Adam works will tell in time. Judging from today I think he will pull it off. He needs to be given a chance and I am sure all MM fans will do that.

Nikki, I wish I shared your confidence in Y&R fans–let us hope they do not run true to type. But I agree–let us give the man a chance.
He’s already doing a really good job with the bandages on.
I really believe and feel that that is Adam.

Can we just move on from the constant MM remarks it is not fair to him or the new actor who is trying to settle into the role. From all reports MM has moved on I think everyone else needs to.

The show is very good. I love traditional soap and this qualifies. I can watch my action and gangster stuff on my prime time shows. Hope it continues as it has been.

Seems to me-
people got so bored waiting a year for the who is the daddy story to come to an end that they got tired of waiting and wasting their time FF that they tuned out..

Then while in grocery store checkout line they saw the magazine cover telling that finally the end, the revelle, was here and they tuned back in to see it..
And- the curiosity of new Adfam..

I’m waiting for Pratt !! 🙂

Couldn’t put it better. Curiosity about Adam put the numbers up. I have to admit although I think in time the new Adam will work out fine, I was secretly hoping when they gave him the mirror it would be a surprise for the fans and MM was back. The day he fell and Sage kept on talking and he said ( shut-up) he really sounded like MM. I don’t think he ‘s as handsome as Michael but like Phyllis after awhile he’ll fit in.

I have been wowed by how much the new actor’s voice sounds like MM!
Looking forward to seeing his face, and how well he has it down with
other Adam mannerisms. I have a feeling he will fit in nicely.

I noticed that too, how similar their voices were– don’t know if that was done on purpose or just a happy coincidence but it made the transition to a new face more believable.

I think it shows how well a “traditional” soap can do. No OTT story lines. A great November sweeps so far!

Agree the storyline about the paternity test involved 4veterans of the show and GT is doing a bang up job as the new Phyllis. When JFP first came on I was scared she would run all the veterans off but two years later they are still here and still carrying major story. kudos!

Y&R has been really good lately. I love the addition of Cameron Grimes & Gina Tognoni. I’m sure Justin Hartley & Kelly Sullivan will be great too. All around big improvements.

Brilliant idea to pull the old plastic surgery card for me it will make it easier to accept a new actor in the role. I do wish Jill had more of a storyline but this may be what Jess Walton wants.

I believe people have moved on but the love they had for their actor wont fade. I do believe the ratings went up for a couple of reasons. 1st. Victoria’s baby & who’s the daddy, 2nd. Is the new Phyllis going to cut it, and 3rd. The new Adam. We already know the new Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) is a keeper & the fans love her. Now Victoria, they didn’t say anything but we can guess it’s Stitch because if it was Billy it may break-up Billy & Chelsea and there would be no war with Adam because Billy would be… Read more »

Kay–once again, we agree. As Queen once sang,”Mama Mia let me (Michael) go.” And I loved Michael’s Adam–he was brilliant and sublime. But he’s gone and he’s not coming back. Let us move on. On a different note, the heart attack Meredith Baxter feigned in the basement of the Jabot offices was ridiculously unrealistic. That’s not how it happens! That is especially not how it happens in women. It was so bad that I actually thought the character was faking it to get out of letting Victoria out of the utility closet. That was so bad she makes Redd Foxx’s… Read more »

@Harry I will be honest with you I am not a fan of Meredith Baxter’s work I can think do a lot of daytime actresses that could have done that role us twice Anna Stuart/Donna from Another World comes to mind. Also ever since AH/Victoria has taken over the role she has become quite the whiner which bores me to tars not the tough business woman Heather Tom created plus HT’s portrayal would never have put up with Victor’s constant interference. But then again this is only my opinion! 🙂

I loved Meredith Baxter on Family Ties, but she’s just not working for me in this role. Who would I have cast? Erika Slezak. Yes, I know she is known for playing Victoria Lord, the pristine, classy blue blood. But she is also known for playing her alter, Nikki Smith, the bawdy, bar hopping, gum shopping floozy. Sleazak would have been perfect in this role. I agree with you that Heather Tom really was her father’s daughter–a woman who doesn’t suffer fools gladly and who is a real ball buster. This Victoria is so whiny wimpy.

I hope all the MM fans do what Michael said and respect the new actor playing the part of Adam. Its time to move on.

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.
