Billy Miller Last Airdate Jan 30th on Y&R! David Tom Returns On-Air Feb 3rd!

For those who are still reeling from yesterday’s news that Billy Miller is leaving The Young and the Restless in the pivotal role of Billy Abbott, and is being replaced by the original actor to play the role, David Tom, more info has come to light via TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan!

First off,  Billy Miller will continue taping scenes at the CBS soap until December 19th.  That means, Y&R fans will see the last of Miller in the role of Billy Abbott on January 30th.   David Tom will then first be seen on the February3rd episode of the series.

A Y&R rep told TVG on the casting switcheroo:  “The show wanted Billy Miller to stay and worked hard to make that happen but we are going in another direction now.  We are very excited to have David Tom back in the role.  Not only is he a terrific actor, it will give us an opportunity to dig into our archives and use some of those great old Glow by Jabot flashbacks.  We say a big thank you to Billy Miller and wish him well in all his future endeavors.”

Y&R’s Joshua Morrow (Nick) voiced his sadness at the departure of his long time cast mate Miller via Twitter last night when he tweeted first, “today was not a good day. :(”   And that was followed by a second tweet “Guess my tweet was too cryptic…..found out Billy Miller is leaving….I am not happy about it. I am going to bed to pout :(“

So are you ready for Miller to vacate the role and for Tom to step back in?  Weigh-in!

I’ll miss Billy Miller but I’m excited about David Tom returning. Since I started with his Billy, it will feel like the real Billy has returned to me. The stories were top notch back when he was on. The single story all my kids remember is Billy dying in the snow. Can’t wait to see him again.

I wish Billy Miller luck and hope he finds the role he desires in prime time, he has the talent, he should go for it.

If Y&R did not want Billy Miller to leave then why couldnt everyone come to some agreement….I think it is BS when they said they are taking his role in another direction…Billy Miller is the only RIGHT CHOICE

Billy Miller is my favorite besides Joshua Morrow. I googled everywhere in disbelief. When I found out Billy Miller was leaving Y&R I cried like a baby. I don’t know how I can watch Y&R without him 🙁

i know right…. ?

it really boggles the mind…

that the production team…. casting/writing/producers…

don’t know how crucial Billy Miller’ ACTING is top draw… along with Michael Muhney… these two.. are: the nuVictor and nuJack

honestly…..

it doesn’t reason that Y&R would let him go…

it baffles me… that fans are not listened to…..

The right and ONLY choice. They should speed up whole Delia SL to completion so BM can finish it all the yway out; I cant imagine DT coming in and finishing this SL.

AND… DT looks way younger than Amelia so this should be EXTREMELY interesting.

SZima
Guest

Hopefully the new direction will be away from Victoria!
I agree, David looks way too young to be with her, even though he’s a year older than Billy M.
David just has the perennial baby-face (like Jonathan Jackson on GH) and really never “looks right” with more mature looking women.

After all these years I now have a reason to stop recording and watching Y&R. It took me a while to like the new “Billy,” but now I cannot imagine a better actor playing that role. The chemistry between Billy and Amelia is so believable. I always thought it would be a matter of time before Miller would move on to bigger and better. Good luck to Billy Miller–you deserve it. Best of luck to all the characters of Y&R.

P.S. I still say Adam did not kill Delia. I believe I saw two cars in that scene, one was Adam and the other a woman. Whatever happened to her? I bet we will find out down the road. Could it not be her that ran over Delia?

I agree also Adam didn’t kill Delia. No scratches on the car no thump, but with no other story line they will drag this out for another 2 yrs. This is very boring now. When you come up with a better story line and Billy and Michael are back let us know.

Sooo agree with Josh NOT HAPPY ABOUT THIS AT ALL!! I agree we don’t know what happened in the negotiations, but if it were Eric B they would have worked their asses off to keep him… Billy Miller is at his best right now and they let him walk!!!! I wonder what the rest of his cast is feeling right now…

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

Not really, a few years back Eric B got canned when they couldn’t come to terms, and the character of Victor and Nikki were written out and they explained their absent by saying they went to Europe for some medical reason after Victor got his new heart from Colleen. It was only because fans were so outraged that they eventually worked something out, otherwise Eric B would not have been back at all. Only a small few might have enough weight and fan base to squeeze a bit more out of the show, but eventually, everyone is replaceable, every character… Read more »

I certainly will miss Billy Miller. He’s done a fantastic job portraying this character. I will him all the very best in his future.

I was not a Y&R viewer when David Tom played the role. I do remember him from his time as the dastardly Paul Cramer on OLTL. He’s was great.

I don’t know… having to rely on lackluster and losing steam… Victor and Jack

I’m not one to cast doubt on Serial….

but… the production lends itself that way….

now it would seem… for ME…. it’s Adam, Jill, Victoria, Michael…. who are left carrying the show.

writers… you have so much power… to bring back Nikki and Sharon… who are MIA.

i have misgivings that Y&R can rebuild.

good luck to Cynthia Watros
good luck to Tristan Rogers
good luck to Sean Corrigan

He’ll probably try his luck in primetime…too young for Danial role…maybe he could be Jeremy Horton, Micheal’s son and a new love interest for Theresa but im not sure he’d jump into another soap role at the moment…he might be more interested trying primetime first…imo.

same goes for Kiki on GH.

I doubt that Billy Miller will rush right back in to Serial… and I want him on daytime…

DAYS and GH should pay beaucoup bucks and cashola his show.

Day 1 fan-Have been through all the incarnations with Old/New Jack, Jill, Ashley, Billy, Lily, Phyllis, Diane, Vikki, Adam, etc., but Billy Miller’s version is mature, fallible, gripping, relatable and caring. He will be missed terribly. I will enjoy “Billy A” as long as he is there and hope David T. (who I loved as teen Billy) has matured as an actor and can resume his role as well as has been done by Billy Miller. Always hoped that Heather Tom (who is awesome as Katie on B&B) would return to Vikki over the years past, but now with her… Read more »

I am going to miss Billy Miller. I was so happy when he came on board after seeing him on AMC as Annie’s crazy brother Ritchie. He just lights up every scene he is in. I hope he gets a good gig after this. Hard to walk away from a steady paycheck. It takes a lot of guts. Way too many changes in characters this year. I always feel someone is missing when I watch these days. Another big loss.

As a long time soap watcher I have seen many actors come and go, some go on to be big names in other fields, while others have returned to their daytime roots. Some actors enjoy the working on a soap because it gives them a steady income, regular hours and that is good if you have a family to support. But others want a chance to grow as an artist, and playing the same character day in and day out for years on end isn’t always the appealing choice for some. So I don’t begrudge Mr. Miller wanting to leave,… Read more »

I hate to see Billy Miller leave, just hope it was his decision and not pushed out the door. Y&R cast is way to big, so many more need to go. Billy Miller is a great actor and he will do well.
Y&R needs to clean up their sets, they look so bad. B&B has nice clean looking sets. Y&R needs to take some of the money they are saving on BM & MS get some paint and new furniture, PLEASE!

Yay! It’s like having 2 great Lucky’s on GH to draw from. Welcome back, David Tom, and best wishes, Billy Miller.

And yes, what was wrong with the old Kyle Abbott? Not quite understanding that recast, or the recast of Noah, for that matter. Actually, they’re all just teenagers at most, and Summer is only 8, so the SORASing on this show is totally out of control.

JFP has TRULY screwed up witth this! Tom, played Billy as a young boy. Billy Miller portrayed him as a young man with many layers. The chemistry he shares with Amelia Heinle is so great and it sure as hell won’t be there with Tom. Don’t get me wrong David Tom is a fine actor and he proved that many years ago. But, the character has changed and I can’t see this as a casting coupe. Billy Miller will be missed and I am sure any smart executive producer will scoop him up. All the best to him!

I don’t like the direction the show has been going over the past year or so. Recycled plots, redecorated and redone sets, killing off characters; it’s not working for me. With the exit of Billy Miller, Y&R should consider itself in crisis mode. I’ve watched Y&R since the first episode. For the first time in a long time I’m considering taking a break from viewing. I don’t feel that ‘Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow’ now.

Right now there are so many things that have me upset with Y&R right now and this is one of them. I warned people that once JFP got a hold of your show that it would go straight down the tubes. People didn’t take me seriously and now look. They have botched Katherine’s death by having Jill do a stupid quest. Let Genie Francis walk out the door. Then again, they may have pushed her out the door. Most recently they made the controversial decision to kill of Delia. The list goes on. Personally I think that their press release… Read more »

Well said, killing off Delia was pointless and lame. I do not believe Adam hit her, and it’s all flimsy circumstantial evidence at best, which you would think Adam’s brilliant mind would know, too. A stupid storyline just to exit Michael Muhney off the show. Can’t negotiate a contract with Billy Miller, so he’s gone, too. Wake up call to Y & R writers: you have let the two biggest draws of your female fans slip away. They are the next-gen Jack and Victor and already as irreplaceable.

I will really miss Billy Miller. He is definitely one of the best actors on a show with an amazing ensemble cast. I know he will find further success.

I am also a David Tom fan and think if Miller wants to pursue other interests DT is the perfect choice. He was great as Billy Abbot and I LOVED his dastardly Paul Cramer on OLTL. I’ve seen him in other projects also and I’m sure he will be great.

Just unbelievable what JFP is doing to Y & R.: Same name, different faces. Billy is a franchise actor, they need him, Billy Miller, to win the fight of cancellation. How the heck are all the newbies going to increase ratings?! I watch and wonder who they are…New Noah is terrible, same for Summer. Nothing personal, but the previous actors did the jobs well. As someone else said, I have not bonded with the newbies. DT was good IN HIS TIME. BUT, a new kid on the block came along and like a powerhouse, took over like a storm. Billy… Read more »

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
