Is it like a pre-requisite for all the ex AMC stars to go to Y&R? Cliff, Angie, Mia, Bianca, Richie Novak, Jonathan Lavery and now Annie…. Apparantly, Y&R loves fishing from the AMC talent pool.

CBS Soaps are the top in the ratings and have the best production values of ANY soap on TV…. ABC and NBC soaps’ production values really should take notice. NBC is headed in the right direction, but it’s gonna take a lot ot knock CBS out.

yes cbs soaps rocks. i think she is a good actress but i would prefer to see for example Victoria Rowell to come back who is a legend of the show…you can see the ratings are going down and down for the y&r…

It is the writing that results in the lower ratings in this instance. I cannot say overall I have enjoyed the yarns being spun in recent years. I loved Victoria Rowell on Y&R and her strength is sorely missed.

What the heck more new people? The new people I did like, Maura (who was new to me) and now Tristan are fired. Whats the point of hiring new people if you fire the ones that work out the best?

I ‘ve watched Y&R regularly since the start but rarely now days. Jill and Colin kept me checking in, they were a hoot , but that’s ending , and all signs point to a ending I have no interest in. Y&R has become miserable to watch, what a shame.

Y&R is a great show with a wonderful and talented cast. Story lines are good, leaving you wanting more and more. Love, love, love Michael Muhney, Melissa Claire Egan and Steve Burton. Also will very much miss Michelle Stafford. The show will not be the same without her and she’s not replaceable. Perhaps Michelle will reconsider and stay on. So sorry about Jeanne Cooper’s passing. Another tremendous loss for the show. She won’t be forgotten!! Carry on, Y&R.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Ken Kercheval in the comment section below.   But first, watch him as Cliff Barnes in this scene from TNT’s Dallas when he sees J.R. for the first time in years!
