I've noticed that their ratings are inconsistent, at best; they seem to rise and then fall again, week to week. I've also noticed that Y&R is not currently #1 in the precious, oh-so-coveted Women 18 to whatever category - I think that GH currently holds that title. I am just living for the day when Y&R gets knocked off of their high-horse, number one spot in the ratings - as I think that will be what finally pushes TIIC at the network and Sony to sit up, take notice, and finally start (seriously) cleaning house on this dreadful television production.
Edited to add:
I just went back to view those ratings again, and in double-checking I found that I was at least 1/2 right:
Women 18-49 Viewers
1. Y&R 764,000 (-32,000/-46,000)
2. GH 730,000 (+46,000/+176,000)
3. DAYS 630,000 (+15,000/+134,000)
3. B&B 630,000 (-55,000/-9,000)
Women 18-34 Viewers
1. GH 262,000 (+29,000/+80,000)
2. Y&R 204,000 (-26,000/+16,000)
3. DAYS 200,000 (-4,000/+64,000)
4. B&B 169,000 (-30,000/+33,000)
As you can see, GH is now on top of the 18 to 34 group, whereas Y&R is tops in the 18 to 49 group. Personally, I never did see the reasoning behind splitting the female viewers into these two particular groups, and I have no idea as to which group is considered to be the most important in terms of potential advertising revenue.
Might I add that, and lest anyone become upset with me - this is just my personal opinion, right now GH is what I consider to be must-see, can't miss TV - everyday viewing - where as Y&R has become somewhat of a bore, dreaded chore, and total snore viewing. In fact, I just finished watching the entire weeks worth of Y&R in record time, as I skipped through all of the awesomely awesome Baldwin/Carmine Murder Not-Mystery scenes, as well as anything featuring Billy, Victoria, Chloe, Neil, Lily, Cane, Devon and Hilary.
The only stories I currently find entertaining on this dreck are the ones involving Adam, Peanut, Chavez and Kevin - but Chavez and Kevin only in the context of them being a possible couple. I ff through any Kavez scenes involving the Baldwins, as I just cannot take any more of the contrivance otherwise known as Perpetually-Victimized-Lauren-and-her-Stalker-of-the-week. I've had more than enough of poor victimized Lauren, TYVM! Right now, Adam and Peanut are my only reasons to continue viewing this on-going JFP disaster.
This show really is borderline suckage!
