On-Air On-Soaps was in touch with a rep from CBS and The Young and the Restless this morning, and we can report that Hartley Sawyer will finish up his role of Kyle Abbott tomorrow, December 17th at the sound stages of the number one soap opera at CBS.

Fans of the series will see Sawyer last appear on-screen in the upcoming January 27th episode.   There is still no word as to whether the show plans to recast the role, or not.

As we previously reported, Sawyer took over the role of Kyle back in March 0f 2013, after replacing Blake Hood in the role of the son of Jack Abbott and Diane Jenkins!

Still the jury has been out among fans which of the two adult Kyle’s they liked better, and if they would like to see a recast of the role, and if so, who should Y&R bring in!  We will keep you posted on any more details emerge on the role!

I thought Blake Hood was great. He portrayed the grown-up, Ivy League, silver-spoon Kyle well. I liked his chemistry with Hunter King (Summer) better too. When the news finally comes out that Summer is not really Jack’s daughter, they will be free to re-kindle their romance. Also, this has nothing to do with anything but just an observation . . . Blake Hood could easily be Adam Newman’s brother or son. I think they look very much alike. Happy Holidays to you Michael Fairman!!

Blake Hood was great other than that unfortunate resemblance to Michael Muhney.

I personally think they aged Kyle to old. Kyle should have been aged to a teenager; instead of someone in their early twenties. Kyle could have been a part of the teen storyline with Fen and Summer in High school when the bullying storyline was going on. I wish Hartley well in future roles.

I liked both of them. When any new actor comes aboard it takes me a little while to get use to them in the role, but then I do. Blake seemed to be younger and may have fit better with Summer, but when it came down to being part of the business I think Hartley fit the part better. I was looking forward to seeing Hartley Sawyer as the mole in Victor’s company. Anything to finally let Jack win over Victor. Best of luck to you Hartley.

Hartley Sawyer, the best for you..
Hope you find work !!

It’s always sad for the actor when he loses his job and perhaps a dream..
Hope to see him in a show, soon 🙂

YES! This is fantastic news! Hartley Sawyer was a terrible recast, one which I never understood, because Blake Hood was so much better. Thank god he’s leaving, I couldn’t stand him; aside from the fact that he didn’t suit the role at all, he was always really creepy looking.

As far as a recast goes, I wouldn’t mind seeing Blake Hood return to the role, but maybe consider Tom Pelphrey from ATWT? I think he’d be good for the role. Honestly though, three adult actors playing Kyle in under two years… maybe they should just give the role a rest for a little while before bringing in another actor…

Wishing Sawyer the very best; it was tough for me to get on board with him initially, but he really grew on me and showed some terrific acting chops; holding his own with Braeden, Bergman and Stafford. He has a very bright future!

Bring back Blake Hood. I never understood why they fired him. Y&R has been making some very bad casting decisions.

Really liked Hartley as a business guy, a suit, far more convincing than the guy who plays Noah ( sorry never could get into R Adamson, poor casting).
Hartley wasn’t given a fair chance, the writing wasn’t stellar.
Good luck to him! He’s a great actor with stage presence!

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
