So Avery is going to have her own cooking show.

Wow.

That should generate tons of story and send ripples across the story canvas.

Maybe she’ll make a PBJ sammich for sweeps.

UGH.

Yuck!!!! That’s the most boring thing they could do. I guess we could turn it into a drinking game and have everyone take a shot whenever she mentions cupcakes. Too bad I don’t drink. Sigh.

This is a show that does not need another new character. Please utilize the cast you currently have and finish the long drawn out storylines currently airing.

AGREE! Nothing against Matt, but please no more new people, have way too many actors who don’t work now on Y&R no storylines! JFP just throws new people out there to see who works and who doesn’t!

Need to bring back Sarge. Jack needs his friend. Peter Bergman and Darnell Williams give each other Emmy winning performances and brings energy to the character of Jack.

I have a feeling that Y&R is jumping on the bandwagon. Austin will be revealed as being gay.

I think they should jump on that bandwagon! I mean, it IS 2014 after all.

I heave a big sigh…reading about MORE newbies on GH and YR…and Sean Kanan leaving. I dont get it. I just dont get it. And obviously, neither do any of the writers or producers of these shows.

Could be a new love interest for Summer or perhaps he is this Abbott cousin they were casting for a while back or he could just be bit player who will be on for a few shows and that’s it. But he will definitely be yet another newbie on a canvas already filled with too many new faces– and isn’t it interesting his first scenes are with Dylan– I guess Dylan is now Y&R go to guy to launch every new storyline from

Let me see…

1. Dylan the bland, boring and one-dimensional muscle-head
2. Avery the dull airhead
3. Austin…YET ANOTHER annoying and unwanted newbie character forced and shoved down our throats

I’m supposed to care because…….

He’s cute, but why do we need new characters and actors? Utilize the ones you have in GOOD stories. They actually need to get rid of some of the ones they currently have (Hilary, Dylan, Avery, Kelly).

I think they need to cut down the unnecessary characters and get some expensive highly experienced actors. Cady McClain is a good startx but we need some actors that were fan favorites from our lost soaps. Like Martha Burne or the one who played Devon’s mom. Maybe Hunt Block?

Okay,here’s my take on this,…with all the hiring and firing going on,this is to me, a sneaky way to get this show off the air. They are not being creative at all. And by them firing the best people they had,just proves that this is headed for an end. JP needs to be fired,and all who work with her. How stupid to cut their own throats this way. There are a lot of great actors,and actresses to cast on this show. I heard that Eric Braeden had Billy Miller fired,and Michael Muhney. All because he wants to be the only… Read more »

WOW…They’re murdering this soap to a slow painful death. Hoow are we fans suppoose to have any hope at all at tthis rate. Used to look fwd to watching y&r through tough days during my teen yrs so all this rapid BS storylines and new casting is truly a disappointment. JFP needs to go back to producers college or wherever it is she came from its not even funny.. Guarantee, us fans can write way better scripts. GET RID OF THIS USLESS PLOT and please, if need be, bring in only decent new talent. Michael Muhney, Billy Miller, Michelle stafford… Read more »

I totally agree with those who have posted that Y and R does not need
another new character! And it is hard enough getting used to new actors
playing OLD characters lately, such as new Billy.
But Avery an airhead? No way! She has a level head, and a sweet,
fun personality, as well, in my opinion.
