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.

Michael B. Jordan Recalls His Acting Start as All My Children’s Reggie in SNL Opening Monologue

Last night, Michael B. Jordan hosted Saturday Night Live.  The Creed star, who is the director of the upcoming Creed III due out in March, took to the stage to deliver his opening monologue, and right off the top he mentioned his beginnings as All My Children’s Reggie.

Jordan portrayed Reggie from 2003-2006 on the ABC soap opera (his character was eventually adopted by Jack Montgomery).

When Michael hit the stage, he shared: “Yesterday, I had a crazy full-circle moment. We pre-shot some videos for the show and when I got to the studio I realized it was the exact same place where I shot one of my first acting roles on the soap opera All My Children.

He then tossed to a clip of his 16-year-old self in which Reggie says, “sometimes the animal in me gets kind of crazy” and then howls life a wolf at the end of the scene. Back to the SNL stage, Jordan said mockingly, “I’m pretty sure I hit puberty mid-howl.”

Jordan ended his monologue by looping it back to his early acting days on AMC, sharing: “I just want to say, I’m so grateful to be standing on this stage. Sometimes, I can take myself a little too seriously but tonight, I’m going to have fun, I’m just going to go for it. And maybe, just maybe let the inner animal get a little crazy.”

Watch Michael’s opening monologue below.  Then let us know, what did you think of the the AMC Reggie clip reference? Do you recall Michael’s days on the ABC daytime drama series? Comment below.

Stause, who is one of the mainstays of the Netflix reality series, Selling Sunset, comes back to her old stomping grounds at DAYS just as Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Marlena (Deidre Hall) and Kate have ‘died’ and have all landed in this white space which looks to be heaven, but really is hell in disguise, especially given Marlena’s latest visit with Susan Banks (Stacy Haiduk), who seemingly reveals herself to be possessed by Satan.
