Fantastic news from Mr. McKenna himself!  The former Y&R favorite where he played Detective Harding – who turned out to have a murderous streak in him – has found a new soap home with Y&R’s sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful!

McKenna, who first came known to soap fans in his younger days as Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live, tweeted a photo showing just where his next acting gig is located … none other than his old stomping grounds at CBS Television City!

In his clever deja-vu tweet, Chris related: “First day of work on a new gig. “I could swear I’ve been here before. #YR #BB @BandB_CBS #AcrossTheHall”

Just what role Chris will take on, and who he will play in story with is yet to be revealed by the reps at The Bold and the Beautiful, but stay tuned.

    Hopefully they will realize what a gem they have in Chris unlike those at Y&R!

    WONDERFUL….HE IS A GOOD ACTOR AND THEY NEED NEW FACES DESPERATELY….GOOD LUCK TO CHRIS.

      B&B does not need new faces. With Julius and Vivian moving to L.A. the Avants now becoming a mainstay “core” family, and bringing in Sasha to further complicate things, the last thing the show needs is more new faces right now.

        I would normally agree with you, Jimmy, EXCEPT that is new face is Chris McKenna…and he is delicious.

        Like, when you are pretty full from dinner EXCEPT there is always room for pie…a yummy, perfectly made pie named Chris McKenna 🙂

        I would agree with you too but Brooke “needs” a love interest.

    I would get excited, but I am sure he will be wasted. He will probably have to be Brooke’s new LUST interest.

      I thought that too… Brooke’s new man!!! I would welcome whatever he does!!!

    Glad to hear this. I was very disappointed when Y&R let him go. One of the few on there that can act.

    • Mollie

      January 20, 2016 at 9:13 pm

      Act, schmact…look at that man !

      But yes, he can act, too.

    New man for Brooke?

      January 20, 2016 at 12:32 pm

      God I hope so, this whole Bill, Brooke, Katie re-do is a joke.

      • Jenny Brooks

        January 20, 2016 at 5:24 pm

        Amen!! Please put him with Brooke! This redux crap with Bill is beyond awful!

    OMG : lucky B&B

    DAYS needed him

    bar none; he’s one of the hottest

    January 20, 2016 at 12:44 pm

    I AM SO EXCITED. I MET HIM ON FAN DAY AND WAS DEVASTATED WHEN HE LEFT YR. I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE WHAT ROLL HE WILL PLAY… WOO HOO

    • SZima

      January 21, 2016 at 5:29 am

      Cloverleaf roll?
      French roll?
      Kaiser roll?
      Maybe he’ll play the ever-popular Parker House Roll!

      Sorry, couldn’t resist. 😉

        January 21, 2016 at 12:07 pm

        More like “A Ham in a Role”!!

        I have no clue as to the attraction of this guy – none whatsoever….

      • JOANNA RUBINO

        January 21, 2016 at 4:28 pm

        Isn’t freedom of speech wonderful. Didn’t have my glasses on… I know what roll means!!! And I also know it should be role… But thanks for pointing that out… The attraction??? I like his acting and I loved his role on YR. As simple as that!!!

    Good to have new characters/actors. Sasha’s beau? I guess we’ll see.

    B&B already has way to many cast members and they only seem to use a handful of the cast. I wish the actor all the best and that he does not get put onto a back burner story.

  10. Michael

    January 20, 2016 at 1:43 pm

    I heard he will be hooked up with one of the Logan girls, Bring back Donna Logan (Jennifer Gareis) for him lol or give him to Brooke

    • Patrick

      January 20, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      give him or share him with any one but Heather Tom

      Jennifer Gareis is HOT

      • Mary

        January 28, 2016 at 4:34 pm

        Heather is hot and I heard it’s her ha ha

      • Mary

        January 31, 2016 at 7:48 pm

        Love Heather too she is hot and I heard he is for her

    Chris McKenna’s talents were wasted on Y&R, but I’m not sure he’ll fare too well on B&B either. The last thing the show needs right now is more newbies, when there are already cast members who are rarely seen and have little story (Deacon, Quinn, Carter, Donna etc.)

    • sarah

      January 20, 2016 at 10:39 pm

      usually I would absolutely agree that the cast has reached its limit & they should just make the call to expand B&B to an hour (wishful thinking lol). However looking at the storylines I can see a new cast member working. The Liam/Steffy/Wyatt/Ivy quad probably has maybe 4months of life left in it, if that because B&B tends to move faster than the other soaps. Caroline’s baby storyline while yes CaRidge are off screen a lot, that will be coming to ahead in the next 4-5months give or take. There will most likely be a lot more real estate & B&B can run more than 2 storylines at once when they cut out the useless filler scenes & commit running multiple storylines. I also think that the writers know that Brooke/Bill/Katie 2.0 isn’t going to run on its own, it needs a fourth party or its just a repeat so an extra person in that storyline could be what shakes it up & gives it that new feel. I guess my point is that they have the Avant storylines set up, The caroline baby storyline is already set up, Quinn getting involved in the quad is already set up. I do think Deacon & Carter need some kind of story & I’m pretty sure that Donna is actually no longer under contract so I wouldn’t be concerned with that character.

    New man for Brooke and Katie…I feel a Bill/Brooke/Katie/new guy quadrangle coming. Haha but he would look good with Brooke or Katie!! He is gorgeous!!!! Can’t wait for this!!!

  13. Ricardo

    January 20, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    Wow, that’s wonderful news, I hope they pair him with Brooke Logan. Brooke needs a new man in her life. Chris is a wonderful actor and hot too LOL.

  14. robert

    January 20, 2016 at 4:58 pm

    happy for him but boy did Y&R waste him. I thought he had massive potential of being a big star. He can act better than a lot of the other newbies at Y&R. making him a killer of dayplayers that nobody cared about was so stupid

  15. Llanviewer717

    January 20, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Congratulations to Chris. I loved him as young Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live and he did a terrific job as Detective Harding on Y&R. It’s great to see what a handsome man he has grown into. I was very sorry to see him go. The GCPD is in desperate need of staff. I hope his new gig uses him properly and keeps him around a long time.

    • Mollie

      January 20, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      Well said. Agree with all. If B&B has too many characters, I hope they shed a couple boring ones and write interesting stories for Chris McKenna. He can act and is pretty charismatic 🙂

    • jaybird369

      January 20, 2016 at 9:24 pm

      Yeah, James…MOST DEFINITELY!!!!! I (for one) am so looking forward to seeing what Chris McKenna himself B-R-I-N-G-S to the B&B table!!!!! TOTALLY!!!!!!

      Take care, bro. Peace.

  17. blake

    January 20, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    Great news! He is so damn hot, Y&R was stupid for letting him go and killing off Harding. Kevin and Harding would have been FIRE!

    But I hope he is for Brooke, she needs a hot new stud! I will have to actually watch B&B when he is on!

  18. sarah

    January 20, 2016 at 7:16 pm

    This is awesome he could be whats going to shake up Katie/Bill/Brooke 2.0 I’m absolutely all for it

  19. CMD

    January 20, 2016 at 7:45 pm

    Great news! I hope B&B doesn’t waste him like Y&R/Pratt did.

  20. Donna M

    January 20, 2016 at 7:49 pm

    bring back Nick (Jack wagner) for Brooke or katie or even Quinn conflict. He and Brooke have this poor kid together (sort of) who has no mom..seems like a lot of already story there…also soras kid so he and a returned RJ have conflict.

    • Richard

      January 22, 2016 at 1:31 am

      It does seem interesting that Nick Marine hasn’t been brought back. Katie was involved with him years ago and he would definitely be a formidable rival for Bill. And they could age Jack and mine PLENTY of story!!!!!

  21. Mark Y

    January 21, 2016 at 3:18 am

    Great idea. This he was very likable on Y&R. That being said, B&B’s writers seem to be able to write one story at a time. He’ll make an entrance an engage with his story characters and they he’ll disappear until it’s that story’s turn again. Can be very boring.

    • Chrystie_Delancey

      January 21, 2016 at 9:18 am

      Yeah, once you have been employed for stud service (for Brooke), you are pretty much put to pasture. Say, speaking of those characters that have bedded Brooke, where is Oliver these days? Another FINE wasted actor and character.

  22. Newmanwins

    January 21, 2016 at 6:31 am

    McKenna was one of the very few enjoyable parts of Y&R in 14-15.

    Harding was a entertaining beleiveable cop who got thrown under the bus in that Marco farce so JFP could rush her golden boy, Dullan, into Harding’s role as Paul’s lead cop. The problem is Dullan is a boring unrealistic cop.

    B&B has been horrible since mid 2015. The writing is worse than ever the show’s back to being cartoonish. I just hope and pray McKenna isn’t wasted into any of these kiddie triangles. Liam/Steffy/Wyatt/Ivy is just flat out bad while Nicole/Zende/Sasha is just boring. The best place for McKenna’s character would a pairing with Brooke or Katie and butting heads with Diamont’s character Bill.

    • jaybird369

      January 24, 2016 at 10:01 pm

      Newmanwins…the bottom line here is that Dylan aka Dullan is BORING, PERIOD!!!!! Y-e-p.

  23. Nikki

    January 21, 2016 at 9:08 am

    I am soooo happy to read this. He is such a great actor and Y & R made one big mistake in letting him go. I was actually hoping they would play the old twin brother and bring him back to Y & R. The stories they could have had with him & Abby & even Marissa. I’m glad to see that B & B know what a great actor he is. Watch out Ridge you have some competition with him in the picture for that matter so does Bill.

  24. Mark in FLA

    January 21, 2016 at 5:49 pm

    I recall his first episode on OLTL. I believe he was brought on as a slightly SORAS’d Joey with a newly recast Kevin and Jessica. I remember them coming home to Llanview with Clint and Viki being in a wheelchair. Anyone else recall that?

    Didn’t he play Joey when Ryan Philippe (sp) was playing Billy Douglas?

  25. Ashleigh

    January 22, 2016 at 8:21 am

    Eww, can we just have Brooke NOT taint one of the males on this show?? For ONCE I would love it if a man looked her up and down and said “NOPE.” He deserves better than to be one more notch on her bedpost.

    • jaybird369

      January 24, 2016 at 4:52 pm

      RIGHT ON, Ashleigh!!!!! I hope and pray to G-O-D that TPTB of B&B do N-O-T put that RUGGEDLY DREAMY Chris McKenna (onscreen-wise and everything) with Katherine Kelly Lang’s Brooke!!!!! N-O!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Take care, Ashleigh. Peace.

    • Dawn D

      February 1, 2016 at 9:40 am

      Oh Ashleigh I couldn’t agree more. She is as bad as Bill very self centered in their worlds. However if he is for Katie I hope Chris’s character is and treats her like gold.

  26. k/kay

    January 22, 2016 at 9:34 am

    He is probably going to play a small role as a Doctor who finds out Liam has a blood clot on his brain. I mean he threw Winsor Harmon away and now it seams Sean Kanan is gone again. Face it we are stuck with triangles and having your brother/sister’s baby on this show.

  27. Dawn D

    January 23, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    I love Chris glad he is back. I just hope his character isn’t for Brooke.

    • Mary

      January 31, 2016 at 7:52 pm

      Not it’s for katie

      • Dawn D

        February 1, 2016 at 9:32 am

        Awesome! Hope he treats her like a Queen. Brooke and Bill deserve each other.

  28. Mary

    February 1, 2016 at 11:03 am

    Thank you Dawn D for your post I hope it’s true

RATINGS: DAYS Overtakes GH And Takes The Number Three Spot!

Following their triple-crown victory of winning Outstanding Daytime Drama Series, Writing Team in a Drama Series, and Directing Team honors at the 45th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards, Days of our Lives continued their upswing when the recent ratings were released this week.

For the week ending April 30th through May 4th, DAYS moved past General Hospital as the third most-watched soap opera. Considering DAYS has been in the fourth position of all four soaps for the last several years, this is definitely worth noting.. DAYS came in with 2,301,000 average total viewers for the ratings week, while GH had 2, 288,000. In addition, GH tied an all-time low in the womens 18-34 ratings share.

As for The Young and the Restless, they also lost the most viewers for the week with -174,00, while coming in at 4,089,000 total viewers. Even though they remain at number one and are far ahead of the other three soaps, it seems the show, which in the past has hovered around 4.5 million a week, is down. In addition, the ratings reflected that B&B is now tied with Y&R for the number one show in the womens demo 18-34, and Y&R has tied some lows in total households, and the women 18-49 ratings share.

The Bold and the Beautiful remains second of the soaps with 3,227,00 viewers, but is down over 100,000 total viewers from last year at this time. View the entire ratings picture via SON here. (more…)
