On this week’s CBS promo for The Young and the Restless, several storylines are highlighted.  First, Victor screams at Nikki, “You with Jack Abbott makes me sick!”  And with that we had a chuckle, as many in soapland are also sick over Victor with Sharon!  So, we say, isn’t that the pot calling the kettle black?

On the heels of that, the promo reveals Jack proposing to Nikki!  Then, evil Ricky continues his plots, but who else will he destroy? And then Christine and Danny come home to Genoa City, when Y&R welcomes back Lauralee Bell and Michael Damian for some guest arcs!. But, where will that all lead?

Watch the promo after the jump, and let us know your thoughts about all of this!  We know you have some!

Victor + Sharon = barf

Maria Arena Bell + The Young and the Restless = Barf


The Y&R is a very good soap but becoming too slow..
I would like to see a woman Victors age with man Sharon’s age, ahh.


Friends have told me over the years that I take my soaps too seriously! It’s different now, though. I’m concerned. I”m troubled. I don’t like WHAT I’m seeing (and witnessing) with Y&R. –It’s not the same show.

What really disturbs me is that I sense how the show is struggling….”limping along” with some major disturbances (apparently) going on behind the scenes. Eileen Davidson just being dismissed. Jess Walton exiting for six months (her choice, I know) but what in the world IS going on over at Y&R, huh?

The writing HAS BEEN far-fetched now for at least three years, maybe longer!. Examples: Paul’s whacko sister Patti coming back and back again. Resurrecting Sheila a few years ago and now we’re dealing with her sicko daughther Daisy! —I mean, Really? I felt sorry for Lauren being tormented by Sheila, now Daisy, but you know what? I’m confessing here that I sick of the whole mess by now.

And, Victor and Nikki…over and over and over again covering the same old ground with their reconciling, then breaking up, driving her to drink, and so on and so on. And Victor’s predictable tirades and explosive rampages. Now? the ridiculous notion that SHARON falls for her former father-in-law, an aging Victor!

I’m sorry, but Genevieve’s character was also disappointing to me–despite all the fanfare of hiring a veteran daytime actress to portray her. I thought she was given a lousy storyline to be honest….She’s played it well, But it was a miserable unfolding of dribble.
Dianne’s character was equally awful. Such a brilliant (emmy winning) actress!… brought over from ATWT and just treated terribly on Y&R…..dismissed in fact after less that one year, I believe! –Fans DO take notice to this shenanigans. We obviously don’t forget.

I have even disliked Jack’s paralysis…

The “core families” of Genoa City are falling apart, but not from living life! No. It’s because Y&R has drifted far,far away from its original integrity and quality of showmanship. And, there are far too many young actors coming and going with equally annoying storylines…..”folly” to some of us older viewers. Hey! Get it, somebody! —we don’t care !

Soaps are still “aiming” for a younger audience when it’s the OLDER audience that put these daytime dramas into their prime to begin with . But the younger audience is NOT as interested in soaps and the entire genre of daytime drama is left withering on the vine.

It’s sad. Younger viewers simply don’t have the memories of soaps when they were in their “hay day”…when they were really, really good! –‘Worth tuning into…… every single day.

Ted I know exactly how you feel I talk so bad about Y&R it upsets me my sister is visting and she is in there watching it now, I refuse to. MAB hires every unemployed actor and then treats the ones we grew up with like crap. I hate that Debi Morgan, Genie Francis, Melissa ? have major stories and they are getting ready for the 2nd time to write ED out!!! Someone told me Y&R will be on the chopping block before long!!!


maria arena bell needs to get fired or quit. the young and the restless needs to rehire eileen davidson right now. if they don’t give eileen her job back. hopefully she will go back to days of our lives as kristen blake or susan. maybe she can play both roles again. victor and sharon i am going to get sick to my stomach. sharon case is a great actress. but eileen is way way better as ashley than sharon. fire all the producers of young and the restless. the way its going i give it 2 years for the young and the restless to survive. they did to make changes right away. fire maria arena’s bells ass right now. or i will stop watching my soap. sharon is pathetic. always needs a man. she is so weak and needy. get rid of daisy ricky tucker and harmony. i love debbi morgan. but her charactor is pathetic. they need to give her better material to work on. i live in vancouver bc canada.


I thought that Diane’s murder mystery was one of the worst things I’d ever seen on a soap–and that threshold has been lowered with the Victor/Sharon romance. Kudos to the writers for shedding a million viewers over the past two years.


@su0000, It’s not the age of Victor and Sharon so much, it’s mostly that she and Nick were married and have kids. But I agree with you, It would be great if Jill had some young hottie! LOL. I’d say, Katherine, but I like her with Murphy.

Glad Sharon isn’t with Adam anymore. The character of Adam adds a lot to the show, I think. But his relationship with Sharon was beyond creepy.


Victor & Sharon=D I S G U S T I N G!!!!!, Nick & Phyllis=B O R I N G!!!!, Adam & Chelsea=No C H E M I S T R Y!!!!

All My Children

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

By now, many of you have come across and seen that Michael Fairman On Air On Soaps has evolved into the new and exciting platform, Michael Fairman TV.

I hope you take the time to tour the new site, and enjoy its new look, new features, and extended coverage; which will focus on, and include, not only your beloved daytime soap operas, but primetime television drama, a slice of reality programming, as well as popular streaming and digital series.

This site has been a long time in the making, and we’ve been working very hard behind the scenes to make this transition as smooth as possible.  As with any change, we know that it will take some time for all of us, including me, to get used to it, and adjust to it.

I truly appreciate the community that we have built for the last 10 years, and I value each and every one of you.  As with any new launch, there will be small tweaks and revisions along the way that do come up.  Our goal is to make the best user experience for you, and to bring you the news, interviews, and coverage that you expect from the Michael Fairman brand.

I know many of you are already saying you miss the old Michael Fairman Soaps, but this is an upgrade, not a demolition.  That being said, Michael Fairman Soaps was no longer sustainable as is.  The site needed to grow, evolve, change, and modernize with the times. With modernization, part of that is making the site accessible, functional on mobile phones and devices, which we now are.  While some things can’t remain the same forever, we are always interested in your input.

I am very proud and excited for this new chapter.  I hope you will enjoy everything that is to come, and I appreciate all of your loyal support.  So, let’s christen this site together and celebrate turning over a new page.
