    I have only watched Y & R with Billy Miller playing Billy Abbott, so I have to wait and see before I can make my comments. I just know I love Billy Miller in the role….and am very disappointed with his leaving. Will miss Michael Muhney also. But I shall give David Tom a chance …..back in his Billy Abbott role!!!!

      Are you kidding me why give him a chance he already had one he was replaced by Billy Millar and now that Billy has gone it will never be the same, also with Adam now gone we are not watching to show any more so why dont you join us and let those at the top get the message once and for all its the fans that count, no more for me Im with the one that are boycotting the show

        I stand with you Rita! I am not boycotting, because I don’t want Michael Muhney back on the show. He deserves better than Y&R. I stopped watching early Jan, and don’t miss it.

        day 3 and counting…

        i’m surprised at how easy this is… really

        when the cast is so replete of talent…

        I couldn’t disrespect all…. once again… I hope the best for Amelia, Sharon, and Peter

        tomorrow is day 4

        why not try a network boycott

        I’ve decided to boycott the winter olympics…. Russia considers LGBT a crime

      I think boycotting the show over an actor leaving is silly. I love Y and R. I love soaps. I support them both.

      Of course, it is your choice but I really don’t get it. The genre is bigger than one actor and I, for one, think the genre has taken a big enough “hit” from talk shows, cruddy daytime execs etc. Let’s show it some LOVE and SUPPORT fans 🙂

        NOT WITH YOU ON THIS, The acting is stupid guess you havent seen the Abby one, also lilly and cain nothing no storyline, as for Victor gimmie me a break please dont insult my intelligence, I know a good actor when I see one and the only way is to stop watching why you you even consider allowing the brass at the top to win this one finally the fans are standing up and believe me they are taking notice, with Billy and Adam gone the show is now ruined, why dont you pick an actor who can act

    Well, I will miss BM but I’m glad his role lives on through David Tom.
    Hopefully, Adams role will be recast as well. GC isn’t
    The same without Adam. He was instrumental
    to various storylines and he kept the twists and turns
    coming. Lets get this character back on the screen soon.

    • Joshua

      January 31, 2014 at 5:43 pm

      The Adam character should have met the Grim Reaper by way of Billy’s hands.

      Nice to know Michael Muhney will not be on our screens anymore however.

        Silly bashing of Muhney, who was the best actor on the show. Nice job Joshua, or is your name Eric?

        February 5, 2014 at 6:51 pm

        Joshua, you really need to keep your 2 cents worth out of the conversation..Evidently, you don’t know what excellent acting consists of. The only way to save this ridiculous soap is to beg Adam to return (and I mean Michael and not some off the wall replacement). I think everyone now realizes what a HUGE mistake it was firing the most popular star on the show. As for Billy Abbott, who really cares, but Michael was awesome in every episode. I guess everyone now can watch some of the casts spending most of their time talking to ghosts. How ridiculous!! To whomever was responsible for getting rid of Adam, I suggest you practice forming your lips to beg the man to return and offer him anything he wants. How stupid to accuse him of such a ludicrous and absurd thing!! You have forever ruined this show!! I truly hope it goes downhill as fast as it took you idiots to come up with that crazy story as to how you can get rid of MM…..Bad Move!!!!!!! Your loss and GH’s Gain!!! Ha Ha.

    No no no and no!!!
    This is not good, not at all..

    I do not care if David Tom was once Billy he just doesn’t cut it..

    Billy Miller/Billy Abbott owns the character of Billy..
    After the strong performance of Billy Miller/Billy Abbott, a mature man, and my Billy, David Tom will not be able to fit his shows or replace Billy Miller..

    This is going to be an epic fail ..

      right on, dont understand these people who wont stick with us, they are not getting what is happening to our beloved show, its not the show you watched last year totally a new show that sucks, no Adam and No Billy so no more Y @ R

      February 3, 2014 at 4:22 pm

      I am use to Billy Miller been watching Y&R for many many years with my mom, I really miss her she’s gone now 🙁 anyway back to the show Billy kinda looks like my younger brother and I also thought he was a fantastic actor….Adam was always an outcast but in the end he tried to be a better person you have to bring him back he’s an excellent actor and easy on the eyes 🙂

    • Joanne

      February 4, 2014 at 7:30 pm

      David Tom was a pouty, annoyingly selfish, self-centered Billy Abbott. You can’t erase that from our memory banks by giving him a Billy Miller haircut. I would have preferred the character just be killed off and then we discover that it wasn’t even Adam who killed Delia. Find out it’s Kelly the home-wrecker that he slept with the killed her. Bring Michael Muhney back as Adam, cleared of all guilt and let him live a nice, happy life with Chelsea. He and Jack can go after Victor over the mail order drugs at the same time Nikki gives him the bam-zoom for his poor treatment of Dillon and blackmail of Adam. Come on writers … if it doesn’t make sense to the fans, we find something else to do with our time.

    I’m happy to see David Tom again. We’re the same age, and I started watching Y&R in college with Billy, Mac, Raul and Rhianna as the teens. I’ll never forget one cliffhanger when drunken Billy was passed out in the snow while there was a party going on inside. Billy’s relationship with Mac was never as good as it was when David Tom and Ashly Bashioum played them. Plus, I think Jill loves David Tom’s Billy just a little bit more.

    This is very reminiscent of the two Janets on All My Children. Kate Collins was great. Robin Mattson became a fan favorite too. Then Kate Collins came back. Two actresses who didn’t look anything alike managed play Janet correctly without imitating each other, if that makes sense.

    I didn’t see Y&R when David Tom played Billy and this will be a change… we will see if it is a good one… Billy Miller’s shoes are hard ones to fill!

    I honestly benn watching this show since birth with my mom and now I’m never missing an episode its the only show i watch that cant miss episodes bedides ellen degeneres two favorite shows ever but one thing I hate is seeing characters leave and someone new playing their roles. No one will play billy better then billy and for Adam and billy leaving its going to be hard. I wish billy could still be played as billy but I understand actors leave for whatever reasons. Still wondering what happened to Jill the show really isn’t the same with out Catherine god bless her soul loved her the show is to me number one best soap ever the only one I watch but I am to say I’m a number one an love the whole cast maybe one day I’ll fly down to watch athe set live! Hope original billy comes back. Love Tammy always a #1 fan xxoo

    Hate to see both go especially Adam…noone canplay that part like him!

    Adam was my favorite character in the young and the restless. I have been faithful to that show for 40 years !!! I can not believe they killed his character !!!! Every day I was looking forward to a part with Adam drama….poor Adam… What is wrong with CBS ???????The other crybabies brats they left on the show will keep it more interesting???? this stinks big time !!!!!

    • mollie

      February 3, 2014 at 8:51 pm

      Adam will be back. He will be recast if all we read is accurate. Hard to believe Michael Muhney would ever return.

      But, Adam will live to interact with the citizens of Genoa City and reek havoc, spread his special charm and drive story lines once again.

      Hip, hip hooray 🙂

      • Joanne

        February 4, 2014 at 7:37 pm

        Y&R miscast the Adam character several times before Michael Muhney was cast. I have no doubt it will be miscast once again. Sad. I love so many of the characters, storylines and actors … but I am starting to get fed up with losing so many great actors (Jeanne, Michelle, Michael and Billy, the little girl that played Delia was adorable) and so many marginal characters kept (Fen, Carmine, Kelly, Chloe). I wish they would decide whether they are trying to keep fans or find new ones. I agree with whoever said showing the outside of the houses is cheesy. The first day they appeared, I was intrigued, after all we’d never seen the outside of these houses before. Now, I’m annoyed. The mansions all look so much smaller than my mind had them. And, we see them everyday now … is it cheaper to show a still of the outside of a house than to pay an actor to act? Guess so.

    After watching that clip of David Tom, I’m still having trouble picturing him as the adult Billy…and Victoria’s husband. Even though Tom is a year older than Miller, he has even MORE of a baby face than BM.

    Oh well, the Villy marriage will probably be ending soon. Maybe he’ll hook up with Chelsea, his other baby-mama. Or Chloe? I liked those two together!

    How many Y&R fans miss Ashley/Eileen Davidson? She will once again be seen in Salem on
    Days of our Lives!!! Y&R’s loss is DAYS gain!!!

    • mollie

      Eileen Davidson is phenomenal. Ridiculously great on Days. If only the writers of Y and R new how to write Ashely as well as Days writes Kristen!!

    February 1, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    I am just wondering if Billy Miller had any idea that his spot at Y&R would be filled so quickly and naturally by another actor, specifically David Tom? Would Billy Miller have left?

    I do love Billy Miller at Billy Abbott but…David Tom is a heck of good choice to fill his shoes.

    • Janell

      February 14, 2014 at 11:04 am

      I agree. I love both guys as Billy. They are both very cute, too!

    Shame on you for having Dillian to dye in the show! I can understand if Billy want to move on, but Adam, what happen to a second change & apology ! Adam was a strong actor in the show, he play Avery excellent part in the show agains his acting father Victor! As for as Nickie in the show, her rating as b acting is getting old! Glad you fondly gott rid of Phillis, for awhile or for ever!! I say bring back Adam back with Chestley! I’ve watch Young and Restless for many years! Maybe you need to change the writers! Shame , shame on you, for changing some of your actors! Yes, I love Catherine , very excellent actress ,in her part of Young and Restless! It ‘s time to let her memories go! This my opinion on the soap! Letting those two great actors go and killing off Dillia! You really mess up! Yes I am, for changes own this you mess big time!!!!!:(

    I cannot believe Adam will no longer be on Y&R, he made the show very exciting, I just loved the part he played. David Tom, woopy, he will never take Billy Millers place. I have watched Y&R since it started but I won’t stop what I’m doing anymore to watch it. I will miss you Adam and the best Billy Abbott ever.

  25. Cheryl

    February 3, 2014 at 7:56 pm

    The show will NEVER be the same without Adam! I also like Billy Miller, he was beginning to seem to lose interest in his part but not Adam. PLEASE bring him back!

    February 4, 2014 at 11:19 am

    I’m about tired of it.. Ive always liked the show but after they lost Phyllis ( who they will never replace with a believable character for those of who have known her for years, It kind of left a “void” in the show, much like when Shelia Carter left… Certain characters you can’t really “replace” you just have to move on. Now on to these two. Adam in particular was a major player in my opinion as a “villian” particularly once they lost Phyllis. Now that they’ve lost the two “BEST VILLIANS” in day time, they further compounded the problem with the loss of Billy the “bad boy”. A lot of the other characters are great but some of them have grown REALLY old .. Even to me a long time watcher who appreciates longevity. I just am not “feeling” it much any more. I dont see how Sharon and these other characters are going to pick up ALL THAT SLACK by themselves.. It remains to be seen and I usually don’t like to jump the gun and say I dont like an “actor” until they are given a chance but i’m REALLY not feeling this new (old) “BILLY”. Wow .. The first scene I just watched with him , he was REALLy doing some “OVER ACTING”.. The scene was almost like a high school play… Ms Chancellor? They’ve lost a lot this year / too much in my opinion in such a short period of time. I had already “slacked up” on watching, I’m TRYING to keep it within my attention span but again, at this point, I’m just not “feeling it” any longer… Sad after all these years as a loyal watcher.. SOmetimes change is good.. Sometimes it cant be helped, but sometimes too much to fast is a BIG OLE MISTAKE..

    hi I love watching y and r when I can get to a tv i’m so glad that david tom is back as billy abbott and I know that heather is too. I also would like it if jerry douglas would come back as john abbott he was also good. again thanks for heather tom davids sister for finding david or however he was found and that he himself was willing to come back to y and r. also please note that I am not a y and r fan but I am an enthusiaste I don’t believe in fans I love david tom as himself not just because he is on y and r I think he would make a good friend dispite what he does.

    February 4, 2014 at 4:45 pm

    Bring Adam back… He’s one of the best actors on the show. Somehow it needs to be proven Dillia
    was an accident and Adam did not know he hit her. He had good reasons not to come forward although
    it would have been best. Heck everyone hated him and would not have believed it was not a hit and run.

    Watched February 4th episode snowed in sit down took a chance David Tom knocked it out of the park no one can put on the water works like the Tom’s. He slipped into that role again like an old pair of house slippers! Congrats and I promise you his reunion with Jess/Jill will knock it out of the park. For some reason they never played the Billy/Jill with BM in the role. Welcome home David Tom!!!!!

    I LIKE THE OLD BILLY….SINCE THIS ONE CAME ON THE SHOW FEBURARY 3RD IT SURE ISNT THE SAME AT ALL….TO ME IT IS A COMPLETE MISTAKE AND I DO NOT LIKE SEEING BILLY AT ALL NOW

  32. jaybird369

    February 6, 2014 at 5:39 pm

    I’m sorry but David Tom’s return to Y&R is N-O-T cutting it for me. At all. And, as far as I’m concerned, both DT and Amelia Heinle look awkward and ridiculous in scenes together. BORING AND BLAND!!!!!

  33. Robyn

    February 6, 2014 at 10:28 pm

    sorry, was a fan last run, but you still look way too young..and NOTHING can replace the chemistry Billy Miller and Amelia have!! bad mistake!

The Young and the Restless Pushes Back Production Restart Date Due To COVID-19 Spike

As the coronavirus pandemic is spiking again in LA County and California, CBS’ Daytime-Emmy winning The Young and the Restless has now postponed their previously announced goal of a production restart of July 6th to now eyeing July 13th as their new start date.  Deadline first broke the news.

But all of this could change, given that California Governor Gavin Newsom and LA County health officials have come forward that the spike of COVID-19 cases, test positivity and hospitalization rates in California have given the Governor serious concerns, so much so that now he is tightening restrictions again for the state to include: once again shutting down indoor dining, closing all bars, indoor movie theatres, as well as all beaches being closed for the 4th of July holiday.

Just last Friday, Y&R picked up the Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Drama Series at the 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards. 

General Hospital is still eyeing a mid-July production restart, The Bold and the Beautiful had gone back into production and Days of our Lives still has episodes banked into the fall, and at this time have not yet announced plans to restart production.

So, do you think Y&R can safely go back into production in a few weeks given the COVID-19 uptick in new cases? Comment below,

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.

The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.
