Great promo! So much fun!!! I’m not even a fan of Y&R and that was really good! I wish the show was as lively, exciting and colourful as the promo lol.

Josh Morrow’s bit was my favourite. That guy is such a ham!

I watch Y&R on occasion but its 40th just doesnt excite me as much as GHs upcoming 50th, and its far more worth celebrating. Dont see YAR on as many mags as GH or talked about as GH which in my book makes it the no. soap in daytime no matter what the ratings are.

Mine, too! I couldn’t stop laughing for a couple hours.

That, and:
– Amelia’s adorable running man at the end.
– Billy getting confetti dumped on him, and a green piece of confetti landing on Amelia’s forehead.
– Greg and Liz dancing like they’re a 24-hour dance-a-thon, fanning themselves with 40s.
– Jessica trying to blow out the 40 candle to no avail.

That’s it. But this promo is beyond fun! One of my favorite in years.

Did Melody Thomas Scott and Jeanne Cooper miss the promo shoot or will there be other similar spots to run as the day nears? Give me more of them, too!

I like that better than the cast of PERSON OF INTEREST promoting Y&R’s 40th. When I see those promos it makes me think they were forced to do it. There is no feeling. I guess all of the actors in CBS’ more popular shows had better contractual terms.

Perhaps MTS just wasn’t interested in doing a promo like that. Not everyone is comfortable doing silly gags like the ones shown- so maybe she passed.

I don’t know. She was up for a comedy before she picked Y&R. So I’m sure she has comedy deep down inside. Plus, she could have done what Eric did and just toasted to the audience.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
