'The Young and the Restless': Viewer's spring renewal continues

See also

'The Young and the Restless' was seen by nearly five million viewers during the most recently documented Nielsen Ratings' week. Has a spring renewal begun for CBS' recently maligned iconic soap opera?

It's been a few months since Michael Muhney and Billy Miller veered off the road and the screen. Prior to their departures, Michelle Stafford and Sharon Case had one last tiff, which caused 'Phyllis' to fall down the steps and enter into a comatose state.

The late, truly great, dame of daytime, Jeanne Cooper, passed from this plane to the next nearly one spring season ago. Her two-part tribute show serenely spectacular. How fitting that 'Katherine Chancellor' park is often visited by the current occupants of Genoa City.

'Katherine' would be the first to tell 'Jill' (Jess Walton) and their appreciative audience that the past is gone. Viewers who don't take themselves too seriously and recognize that this genre represents escapist entertainment, not a replacement for the real world, still want to follow this afternoon story.

Yes, executive producer Jill Farren Phelps changed the picture. Most new bosses put their print on a workplace that they've been charged to renew.

Opinion is reflective of one's personality type. So, it's natural that a certain segment of YR's audience decided to tune out within the last year. But, they've been replaced by returned and renewed viewers.

As all factions exercise their TV rights, this show goes on.
