Young And The Restless Poll: Has Y&R Delivered On Fan Requests For Change? Vote Now!
The focus has returned to the way things used to be, for the most part, on the Young and the Restless. But are enough (a subjective term to be sure) Y&R fans feeling good about the show now that changes can be seen?
This iconic show has remained at the top of daytime’s scripted ratings for the past 30 years. Anyone can offer whatever hot, mild, or cold take one likes in response to that fact. But there’s no logical denial that various executive producers, head writers, and actors have all succeeded, to varying degrees, during that sustained time span.
An industry leading audience size continues to make Y&R the number one choice of people who value what Genoa City represents, entertainment that is intended and delivered as a form of escapism broadcast in daytime.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Displeasure Was Expressed
Talent, both on and off-screen, know they are ripe for praise, advice, or strong suggestions. The influence of social media creates the perception and likely provable reality that fans are directly impacting every soap’s direction. The changes that have taken place on Y&R were called for and delivered.
Some within the audience, who are regular viewers, and some within the show, meaning its employees, have expressed displeasure about Y&R in recent years. That point of view appears to have been addressed in 2019, as the show has restored bits of its old-school look.
Of course longtime fans of Y&R would want to see the Newman and Abbott families front and center. That’s what this soap has projected for many years.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Comforting Scenes To Many
Seeing Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) and Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) in their familiar CEO offices is comforting to many. At the same time, viewers like having the Mustache playing nice with the love of his life, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), while Smilin’ Jack pursues romance, maybe even with his soul mate, Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford, upon her return to the cast).
The great tribute episode to Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) and the lead-in episodes that dealt with Neil’s death allowed cast, crew, and viewers to grieve. Through those moments Devon Hamilton (Bryton James) was affirmed as the head of another of Y&R’s most beloved families, since Lily Ashby (Christel Khalil) moved from GC.
Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) is alive and linked to trouble, with Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) becoming involved. Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) is the chief again and must investigate. That’s just like old times.
Young And The Restless Spoilers – Familar Faces And Music
Vickie Newman (Amelia Heinle) and Billy Abbott (Jason Thompson) are back together, while Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren Fenmore Baldwin (Tracey Bregman) are doing well.
Many familiar faces and even old school music overlays during the scenes. The old Y&R, as was called for by various fans.
Yes, all of the people won’t be pleased all of the time. But that’s never been Y&R’s goal, or the aim of any soap opera. This particular daytime drama will go on as long as it remains the ratings leader and draws enough advertising dollars.
