Y&R is a Ruined Show
17 October 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I wish I was allowed to give zero star! Young and Restless is now a very pathetic show. Bill Bell Sr. must be twirling in his grave. Since Chuck Pratt took over as the head writer the show has deteriorated 100,000,00% It's beyond ridiculous.

Victor Newman is a vile hateful character and needs to go. And no one is indispensable. The Brooks are gone, The Fosters are gone, The Chancellors are gone... Victor Newman needs to go. The show would go on.

Chuck Pratt and Jill Farren Phelps needs to go along with all the talentless Friends of Jill that she hired.

18 -49 is the target audience when it mostly people over 55 who watch the show keeping it as top soap. We are the ones at home all day watching soaps.
