Not into them at all.
No build-up to their relationship,
much less a marriage! So nothing
invested.
But are they cute? Sure.

I am not against this pairing—just wished they took a bit more time to launched it, like they did when Traci developed a thing for the “pool boy” Brad— he just gradually wormed his way into the family— But I get soaps today either rushed through elements that should be slower and go a snail pace on elements that should be faster. Everyone needs a serious refresher course on proper pacing— but other than the rushed romance— this is your typical rich girl marries the boy from the wrong side of the tracks—- this will no doubt be one of many marriages to come for Summer– if the show lasted that long. Don’t hate it, but don’t love it— its just okay.

The Y&R writers have got to be kidding with this pairing — the wedding took longer than their entire on-screen “courtship.”

I think Austin is in Fenmore’s spot if he were around more.

I like this pairing. I was watching Y&R and trying to figure out what is not working. Some of it is the writing but a lot of the problem is chemistry. There has been so many changes in actors that the chemistry has been lost. The perfect example to me is Dylan and Avery. They say the words but the body movements and expressions are not working. There is just no chemistry there. Chemistry is starting to form between Jack and Kelly. Jill and Tristan (can’t remember his screen name) are really cute together. Austin and Summer are working for me. The new Billy is struggling a little trying to figure out his character. I hope the flow of actors in and out slows down soon.

Two talented young actors with good chemistry. Y&R will screw up their characters as they have just about everyone on the show.

Summer is a prime example of hormone-induced stupidity. Estrogen is doing a Niagra Falls on her. Someone needs to put the brakes on this independent little drama queen and do it soon. Isn’t it about time for Phyllis to wake up and give her daughter something to think about?

I like this couple, as far as it being rushed , well I think that is the point. I think she will come to regret her decision about rushing into this.

Summer and Austin are a downer..
They are not hio and sex, they are not entertaining, they don’t do anything but bore me..

I don’t like them at all. Ever since we lost Michael Muhney as Adam I push mute when she comes on. Even before all the drama she is not paired well for Nick & Phyllis’s daughter. She can’t act and always looks like she’s pouting. Boring as hell !

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.
