That was fast! Justin Hartley’s (ex-Y&R, Passions) hit drama Tracker has completed its freshman season with an emotional episode that aired on Sunday, May 20th and was a ratings winner.

Hartley brought in former This Is Us love interest Jennifer Morrison as guest star in an episode entitled The Storm.

According to The Wrap, The Tracker season finale brought in 7.36 million viewers, making it Sunday night’s most-watched broadcast program, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day Fast National data.

In story, Colter Shaw (Hartley) investigates the disappearance of two amateur storm chasers, one of whom is the daughter of an old family friend (Morrison), that the local police have written off as an accidental drowning. Colter’s expert tracking skills lead him to uncover the seedy underbelly of a small town resort.

Tracker’s freshman season started off with a bang, when Hartley’s new show premiered right after the Super Bowl in February and brought in 18.4 million viewers. Even though nothing matched those impressive numbers, the series continued to bring in week-to-week major numbers for CBS and streaming on Paramount+.

So, did you catch last night’s season finale of ‘Tracker with Jennifer Morrison and Justin Hartley? Looking forward to the series return for season 2? Comment below.

All I know is I’m loving it, with the exception that I’d like to see some guest stars that we know and recognize. I don’t think I’ve seen one guest star that I could say, oh, that’s so and so , etc.

got to be honest i have watched him on everything from passions to this is us i give him credit but sorry i just cannot connect to this show i don’t know what it is but i have tried and no

Maybe he’s too good to be true, never fails to find the lost person. Another good show is Will Trent. Any fellow viewers out there?

The popular actor took to his account on X and in a series of posts said his “thank you’s” and bid farewell to the top-rated soap opera.

Trevor continued: “Most importantly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to you the (Y&R) fans. THANK YOU!” Tucker might be gone for the time being, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got projects in the works, and if you haven’t seen my film, A Good Enough Day, it’s now available to stream for free on Tubi!”

The news of his exit comes just two years shy of his time on The Young and the Restless.  St. John made his Genoa City debut in September of 2022 as the new Tucker, last played by Days of our Lives, Stephen Nichols (Steve). The role was first played by actor William Russ.

No word from St. John or Y&R as to when his last episode will air on the top-rated soap opera.  In story, Tucker is losing his company to a takeover by Audra and Victor, while Ashley is finally getting help she needs after her personality split.
