This might be premature but I always knew Billy would move to bigger things. He is so good on DAYS that I had thought when he first started that he would be gone soon. Glad he’s been with us all this time. I am happy for him no matter which way he wants to take his career.

I’ll miss Billy on Days; however, I am happy that he is doing well.

after Michael Muhney.. before… after… currently… Billy Flynn IS

ALL that I want to dream about

oy I’ve reserved my passion

looked after him … prepare your nest young man… you have all the instinct to walk this path.

I’ve read the “rumour mill ” on line as well… that he may well be on his way OUT

how disturbing is that NOW ? my heart be still

just as I’ve read on line… ie: Eileen Davidson… that @DAYS asked “sony” for the opportunity to work with her again… and @Sony said no…. this I read.. after she announced her departure from Y&R. which is nothing more than posting… other than.. will we ever see her back on daytime ? so it goes

Billy Flynn and Eileen Davidson… just mega watt power house’

I love you

Not sure about the premise; would have to read more about it if/when it comes out. LOVE Blly, though, and am disappointed he left Days. One of my favorite actors on there.

With his looks/talent not surprising he already has other projects in the works.

Plain and simple, Billy Flynn is a star!

Not yet! Work on that stage presence first–and get some more experience under your belt. The movie could be a useful, learning tool for you, but stay on Days and hone your talent also.

He’s gone from Days, Nancy. He’s “already left the building” even though his scenes are still airing.

“Star” is in the eyes of the beholder. I agree with Jamesj. Billy has the looks and the talent and he “shines bright.”

Hey Rebecca,
I haven’t been watching Days (or GH) so I didn’t know he had “already left the building.”
“Star” has to be proved by the audiences’ reaction and by the finesse demonstrated. My perception dictates caution.
I wish him much guarded good luck.

Hi again, Nancy; I could be wrong but I don’t think James meant that Billy was “literally” a star as in a well-know celebrated movie star, or TV star for that matter. I think it was just his expression as if to say, he’s a “star” in his (james’ eyes). Just his own proclamation!

“You don’t have to be a star, Baby, to be in my show!”

I just hope that “my show” doesn’t get cancelled… 🙂

Take care, Friend!

And, again, Rebecca, you get me! Obviously, Mr. Flynn is a soap star, which is inherently laudable. But I characterize him as “star material,” as having “star qualities.” And that star can shine in more than one medium.

Nancy, thank you for your reply. I know we agree that it is sad to see Mr. Flynn leave DOOL. Maybe we can enjoy his talents in other projects soon. Best to you, Friend!

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
