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

Sharonda

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

I don’t care ,I’ve watched as long as I can remember ,I’m done with the show CBS is really gone down hill

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.

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

Lisa Smith

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

Kim

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

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 am very excited to see David Tom back as Billy. He’s so talented and adorable.

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

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

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

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.

This was a cute video. I loved the expression on Michael’s face when Nikki told him to ‘put the picture back’!

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.

Janell

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.

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!

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.

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

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!!!!!

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!

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
