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.

Eric Braeden On Y&R’s Diminishing Vets: “My Plea To Management: We Have Lost Some All-Time Fan Favorites!”

Outspoken, direct, and wanting what’s best for the show in which he has become a part of its iconic brand, Y&R’s Eric Braeden (Victor) took to social media to let his feelings be known on the CBS soap operas decision to take Doug Davidson (Paul) off-contract, and not utilizing three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Christian LeBlanc (Michael), letting go of Greg Rikaart (Kevin), and the fact that Eileen Davidson (Ashley) has made the decision to exit the series.

Over the last few weeks, fans have been outraged at the news of the series longest cast member, Doug Davidson being taken off-contract and bumped to recurring with this change happening back in January of this year.

Eric Braeden tweeted: “I normally don’t express my opinions reg the casting on Y&R! That’s the privilege of those who produce the show! However, this is a time when I have to make an exception! I’m still on vacation, hence my comment comes a little late: to let DOUGIE DAVIDSON GO is an egregious mistake.  My plea to management: we have lost some all time fan favorites! D DAVIDSON has been with the show for, i think, 39 years, and people have loved him! Same for CHRISTIAN Le BLANC, GREG RIKART, Eileen DAVIDSON (who left on her own volition)!”

As for Braeden’s statement it has gotten wide pick-up via the daytime media and tremendous support on social media from fans of The Young and the Restless.

So, what do you think about what Eric had to say about the frustration of losing, or the show not using ,some beloved and veteran cast members? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
