The Young and the Restless saw its viewership rise to 12-month highs, which is a good sign for the CBS soap as it prepares for the February Sweeps period.
For the week of January 15, 2018, The Young and the Restless pulled in 4.84 million viewers. That was the week that viewers saw Victor walk in on Victoria and J.T. having sex. Cane and Lily decided to get back together. Graham was injected with a toxic substance during a struggle with Dina. On live television, Mariah angrily accused Tessa of stealing the words from Mariah's journal to write a new song.
The 4.84 million total was the show's largest weekly audience since the week of January 2, 2017. This also marks the highest ratings for Y&R under executive producer/head writer Mal Young. His previous high took place just a few weeks earlier during the week of December 25, 2017.
Oh, just in case you were wondering what was happening back in January 2017, here's a snippet, courtesy of our Daily Recaps Archive: Dylan left on a dangerous undercover assignment. Devon couldn't remember the events leading up to his car accident. Victoria agreed to let Reed live with her. Gloria tried to blackmail Lauren into giving her a job; when Lauren refused, Gloria offered to help Jack get Fenmore's.
