Y&R is now over 150,000 up on the ABC soap opera. For the rating share, Y&R delivered 1.2/09 and that is the best showing since back in April of this year.
In story, looks like Nick (Joshua) putting the pieces together of who Mariah (Camryn) truly is, and Neil’s (Kristoff St. John) blindness and more, started to perk up the viewers who want to see action in the town of Genoa City!
The only other soap in the plus column in total viewers was The Bold and the Beautiful who added +61,000 and remained in second place of the four soaps, and also added viewers in the women’s 18-49 and 25-54 demo.
