Courtesy/CBS

Now that Billy Miller’s final airdate was yesterday on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott, now comes the transition back to Billy Abbott’s original portrayer, David Tom!  As previously announced, Daytime Emmy winner Tom will return to the CBS soap opera on the upcoming Monday, February 3rd episode!

To usher in his return, the folks at CBS.com put together this little video ditty featuring Tom’s Y&R cast mates Christian LeBlanc (Michael) and Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) who recall when David was last on the number one soap.

In addition, David’s real-life sister, Heather Tom (Katie) of The Bold and the Beautiful pops into the video to also share in her excitement that her brother will be working right across the hall from her!

Watch the video heralding David Tom’s return to Y&R after the jump!  Then, let us know if you are excited to see what he brings to the table as Billy Abbott?

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.

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.

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!!… Read more »

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 ..

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 🙂

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

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 !!!!!

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 🙂

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.… Read more »

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!

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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… Read more »

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!!!!!

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
