The Young and the Restless spoilers say that things are looking up for the hit CBS soap. That’s because there’s been an improvement in the ratings, with a lot of people wondering if it has to do with the Ashland Locke storyline and the phenomenal acting by newcoming Robert Newman. Here’s what you need to know.
The Young and the Restless News: Ratings Are Up Again – Thanks To Robert Newman’s Role As Ashland?
According to new reports, there were over 3.2 million people who tuned in to watch The Young and the Restless last week, which was an increase of 191,000 viewers from the previous week. A lot of people believe this might have had something to do with the Ashland Locke storyline, as Victor Newman (Eric Braden) has managed to expose him for the conman that he is.
Of course, it didn’t take very long for both fans and critics to weigh in on the matter on social media. Many of them have commented with, “Y&R improved for a few days with what I thought was the Ashland climax but now we’re back to the drudgery. Why on earth it’s still the no1 soap is beyond me. That, and because there are a lot viewers that tune in because they understand how YR does it storytelling but it’s not for everyone I know,” along with, “Y&R is definitely better. On the right track. I’d like to see more of Michael Baldwin in this Ashland storyline. The Young and The Restless needs pay Robert Newman handsomely and make sure he’s on a long term contract.”
Another fan wrote, “YR can still be slow…but, this Ashland story and Jack story I’m genuinely enjoying. The newmans are really messy and I feel genuine emotion from the Abbotts. The only story I dislike rn is this baby drama. However, Chance deep diving into his ptsd is intriguing.”
