Daytime Emmy winner, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) represented the cast of The Young and the Restless proudly this morning on KCAL9 in Los Angeles!  Doug was on hand to discuss Y&R’s amazing milestone this week, that of the CBS series being the #1 daytime drama 25 years running!

During his segment, Doug reflected on the topics portrayed in the soap genre, the history of his character (in which younger archival footage of a young Doug Davidson as Paul was shown), and the ability of the soaps to tell compelling story with little time for day to day production.

Davidson mentions about the essence of Y&R: “The strength of our show is about relationships, and people interacting.  We don’t freeze the cities and we don’t have vampires!”

Watch the segment with Doug on KCAL 9 after the jump!  Then, let us know what you thought about his comments on what makes Y&R different from the other daytime dramas!

Doug is so cute, just love him. I think that is why Y&R works so well, it’s character driven instead of plot driven and you don’t have a character coming back from the dead a hundred times.. Also CBS fights to keep the show at # 1, they are great to the fans and stay interactive with them on Twitter..

I have always liked Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) ..
I hope Y&R become comes un-boring and soon has some umpth the to lackluster long drawn out stories, I find myself FF through all the boring conversations.
I keep watching in hopes of change, some excitement ..
Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) is awesome 🙂 hope he never leaves!!!
I would like to have Paul with Nikki rather than with Christine ..

I never did care for Cricket either. I actually like Paul with Nina! I thought their mature romance just made sense after all the years. Without Nina there, I though, I agree Nikki would make a perfect match for him. How many times can we watch an abusive, crotchety Victor suck the life out of our Nikki?

Love him and his humour. So glad Doug and Paul are on the front burner right now after many years of being back burned. Hope the show brings his humor into it.

Is there any way to automatically mute the actors telling me what web site I am every time I visit this site?

They’re so annoying and cause my PC to freeze up for a good 2-5 minutes every time. Sometimes I have to do a hard restart. 🙁

Me thinks the Y&R is feeling some heat from GH hence the jabs about vampires and freezing cities! LOL

Jeff a couple of weeks ago I would of said no but in light of what has went down this last week I agree. You notice it was jabs during Monty’s reign and RC&FV’s! Off the board for a while Santa will not come to visit if I do not start being nice! Lol

Freezing cities and vampires…i mentioned several posts ago that exact same thing…a great portion of the viewing audience who watch soaps prefer down to earth serials than campiness and thats why the two cbs shows attract a larger audience…i myself like GH and Days(the latter is so much better now that it isnt campy the way it use to be and i wish gh would do the same)…some campy ok but gh over does it sometimes! However, i still find them the most entertaining! Y&R is no.1 for 25 years…thats good but lets be grateful there are still soap fans out there watching all 4 serials and they are all doing well whether they are no. 1, 2, 3, or 4!!!

Doug Davidson is amazing. I’m so happy he won an Emmy. It was so well-deserved.
Paul has always been my favorite character. It’s great that he has gotten more airtime since July. It has made me watch the show more often. I enjoy watching Paul and I love when he shares scenes with Christine. keep writing for them, please writers.
Congratulations to Y&R on 25 years as number one.

Great to see YR give Doug Davidson his spot as Ambassador of show. Good guys finish first.

I love Doug Davidson, and Paul and Nikki (I believe, so let me know if I’m missing anyone else) are the remaining actors (not characters) from the 1970’s. To the sour gripers, once again, Y&R IS the #1 daytime drama and one of the top rated shows across the daytime spectrum, and it regularly puts up numbers that would be competitive in prime time. I believe Doug Davidson had a large part in initially propelling Y&R to its heights, so congratulations! This is truly an amazing accomplishment that cannot be “spun” away.

I have watched Y&R since [day one]. It is character drive and current . My heart broke when Jeanne died.
I have been so mad at some of the writers but never the actors, they only keep the good ones.
I am 76 and Doug Davidson is still a cutie

l love Doug. How fantastic and what a great honor to have Nikki and Christine in those clips.

‘The Bachelor’ New Key Art Revealed Playing Up Colton Underwood’s Virginity

The upcoming season of The Bachelor does not roll out till January, when season 23 gets underway on the 7th of that month, but ABC today released its key art first poster for promotion of their latest ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood.

Chris Harrison host and EP of the series, posted via Instagram: “It’s now officially official and I have the official exclusive poster to prove it. Colton’s dramatic season of #TheBachelor premieres Mon Jan 7th.”

The poster has the slogan: “What does he have to lose?” and one would assume its a nod to Colton’s noted and much discussed virginity.

Courtesy/ABC

Viewers first met Colton in Becca Kufrin’s season 14 of The Bachelorette, where he came in as fourth runner-up.  He continued on the franchise on Bachelor In Paradise, and his controversial on and off again relationship with Tia Booth, Becca’s friend.

Just how will Colton handle kissing a bevy of ladies, the fantasy suites, and more?  Guess we will find out,and if his season will be a doozy compared to the lackluster season of Arie Luyendk Jr., until Arie dumped his choice for love Becca and went back on his word and fell back in love with the runner-up  – his now fiancee and expectant mother of his chid, Lauren Burnham.

So, what do you think of the poster art for the new season of The Bachelor? Will you be checking out Colton during his effort to find true love? Comment below.

Stephanie is the wife of Atlanta Mayor Evan Lancaster (Brian White), whose true loyalty is to her own family’s prestigious law firm, where she is the latest in a long line of distinguished lawyers. Stephanie desperately wants to be in charge of the Carlisle family law firm and quietly fumes about her father Stephen’s condescending assertion that she’s simply not ready yet.

The series is billed as a multigenerational family saga centered around one woman who, having recently relocated and intent on revitalizing her marriage, finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city.

According to Deadline, rounding out the series regular cast are Essence Atkins (Marlon, Half and Half), Brian White (Ray Donovan, Scandal), Kendrick Cross (Acrimony), Brely Evans (Being Mary Jane) and Erica Page (Ozark, Bad Dad Rehab).

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.
