Yet, T, I was so hoping to see him back at Y&R, just to stick it to Chelsea….ugh!!

Will Adam return? If so, in whose body?

Shame on Y & R for letting such a great actor go. The fans love him and the ratings would have gone through the roof. Stop listening to the ones who didn’t like him and start listening to the fans. At the end of the day the fans keep you on the air.

Victor has no competition without Adam. Nick is weak and Jack has moved onto putting Billy in his place. The show is sleep inducing! The only two actresses that are worth watching on the show are Mariah and Dina! I am so sick of SICKtoria!

Right on, Nikki. Does Hunter King and Braeden ring a bell? Sad.

Nikki
Guest
Nikki

Yes Celia it rings a bell and the sad thing is they (Y & R) thought more of these two than the fans that made them number #1. Well thank goodness we don’t see one of them but the other one is still king of the castle. Watch out Billy your getting a bit too much time ole Vic may have to knock you down a peg or two.

Celia

Ahhh, Nikki…, what a mess!! It’s not about the fans, is it ?! When did that change? We used to have a voice. The problem is, my friend, the industry has become completely political. Politics, as a whole, is a spoiler….stinks to high-heaven. Furthermore, when an actor is given Infinite power to determine who stays and who goes, messes up my viscera. Billy….poor Billy. Jason is “kinda” growing on me, but he’s one of those typically, weak-male-types who thinks with his ‘pride and joy’. Most men, of a certain age, can smell a long-lashed “rat”. Gina’s Phyllis is not cutting… Read more »

Celia, I’ve been watching Y&R for almost 40 years, so please don’t insinuate I’m “not a fan”. Clearly the guy did something (or things) VERY bad and got himself fired. Even HE admits to being an ass. he f’d up. Hence the 6 month radio silence and the day of his firing saying he needed to “protect his family”….he knew of the storm that was coming. Despite his practical begging to be back on the show, they hired SOMEONE ELSE, and still have no interest in him. Where there is smoke, there is fire. He able to get any regular… Read more »

What absolute rubbish. You write this “stuff” like you know everything. All you have done is repeat the fiction that has been on the internet for three years an perpetuated by people like you. Say it enough and it becomes the truth…wrong. The “fans” do indeed want him back and the sheer number of people posting here prove how totally wrong and out of touch you are.

I hope it works out for Michael but I still wanted him back on Y&R as Adam Newman.

Harry

Me too, Sandy. While I am happy for Michael, I am sad to hear that his Adam is not going to come back and kick that sad-sack slacker Nicholas Newman and that petulant, sociopathic little brat Faith out of his house.

Thanks, Harry, for saying what I’ve been thinking about Miss Faith. What a little tyrant! She needs a reality check (really strict boarding school) ASAP. All these “soul talks” to make her life as comfy as possible. And Victor Newman will soon need to change his name to Victor Frankenstein!

His work since Y&R has been less than impressive. Hopefully he will do well. I had planned to check it out prior to him announcing he had work so if it’s good I will still be watching when he makes an appearance.

They let Rebecca Budig / Hayden and Robert Palmer Watkins /Dillon go. Why bring on someone else?
The show needs EP help not him. Bring Wendy Riche Back to GH

BTW, DOOL, OR B &B could Have hired him and chose not to…wonder why..

Celia
Guest
Celia

Patheic, right, Guest?
However, from yesterdsy’s little clip of Hayden writing Finn her final “funebrial” good-byes, I think Rebecca’s exit may not permanent….there’s an opening in the future?
I, also, don’t buy the miscarriage. I think it’s a way to truncate the relationship so that Finn won’t look for her. ?? Ease his pain; not realizing she made it worse??
Well, Finn got a double whammy!!

So glad to hear about his return to TV. I enjoyed his roles in the indie films SEARCH ENGINES and THE TRACK, which he played a truly evil street pimp. Isn’t it sad that the people who run Y&R didn’t listen to the fans who wanted him to return as Adam Newman? I don’t know of any actor who had such loyal fans and created a character that the audience adored watching and pleaded for his return on such a big level. With Y&R’s ratings in steep decline, Muhney’s return would have been a huge boost for the show. Big… Read more »

Your so right Veronica he is so missed by his fans. Planes we’re hired to fly over Y & R as well as I don’t know how many petitions have been signed to get him back. He is loved by his fans. Big loss for Y & R . I always thought the biggest problem with that soap is the actor’s have too much say in what they want. The sad thing is with all the soap’s we lost , if this one is cancelled way down the road it is strictly the older actors fault. They don’t care because… Read more »

Is it a recurring role or a one time guest appearance? I mean work is work, but I still rather see him back on Y&R — get Adam back and have him rescue poor Sharon from the boredom that is Scott.

I understand that it’s a one-time appearance. I’m sad about that. Y&R needs to bring him back. I’m sure that Eric (Victor) could handle it, though he hates Michael Muhney.

I am so happy Michael is back on TV. I hope he can do both Y&R and Good Doctor. We will have to wait and see. Seems to me his fans far outnumber the haters. He is an amazing actor and a good person. I wish him the best and hope he ends up doing what is best for him.

A couple minutes of screen time on one episode. He hardly “has a new gig”

Guest

The problem was it came to a point where some cast members didn’t want to work with MM. Fans can ask and beg all they want but when coworkers aren’t happy and willing to work with him it is another story.

Yep.

Good grief what is your problem? Can you imagine going into work saying I don’t want to work with so & so anymore? We would be looking at a pink slip and the door.

And just where Jaromey is the charge, the accusation even about sexual harassment. If you did your homework..you would see it that whole thing was started by a deranged person..never was it an issue ..if so it would have been dealt with. CBS had to put up with lots of hatred about MMs firing..if they had that in their back pocked..LEGIT I mean..it would have came out. Michaels undoing was his attitude. ego and drive for perfectionism. It cause lots of rewrites, retakes…reshooting scenes…and his co workers and writers got sick of it..MM openly stated this. The sexual bullcrap was… Read more »

I have a feeling and I hope I’m right. MM is doing both shows. He might not be a regular on The Good Doctor and I thought he once tweeted he would be seen in November sweeps for Y&R. Anyone think it could possible?.

Yeah, it’s possible, Sandy. …..up to Eric Braeden, I say. Many of us, including cast members, always rush to judgment….human nature, I guess…but, none (of us) was there. And, those who were may have jumped on the proverbial band wagon. I don’t believe for a minute that Eric did not have a hand in Michael’s termination— Sexual harassment accusations have become commonplace. It’s the “thing” to do when all else fails. By no means am I saying it does not happen;?however, those who lie make it that much harder for those when it truly does happen to them. Why did… Read more »

Because the punishment for workplace sexual harassment is termination of employment.
Look up the difference between sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Excuse me????? I know the difference, thank you……was there assault involved? News to me.
We fans, on this site, respect each other, and each others’ opinions. I beg you to be civil.

Excuse me, Celia, what did I say that wasn’t civil? The dude has a very small part on ONE episode,

Celia

@Jaromey.
Gosh, Jaromy, you ask me now? Well, if you must know, you, perhaps inadvertently, remarked that I am too stupid to know the difference between sexual harassment and sexual assault. That’s what I took it to mean….the implication.
As a High School teacher, I can confidently say that I do master the English language.
I found it offensive. No worries. It’s over.

No, ABC would block him being on CBS like NBC did with Justin Hartley. The fools at Y&R blew it big time. A Muhney return would have given them a big ratings’ boost.

It will be wonderful to have Michael back on my TV screen! I’ve missed him, and I think he could play just about anything. If “The Good Doctor” does for M.M. what “This Is Us” did for Justin Hartley, it’s a win-win for the actor as well as for his fans. If enough of we M.M. fans tune in, it will also be a big win for the network. That said, my wish is that all of those people who have been and still are affected by Harvey and will be affected by Irma will be safe elsewhere when the… Read more »

Comparing MM to Justin Hartley is like comparing apples to oranges. This is Us would be lost without Justin. He is a star player and MM has a ” guest spot” on an episode from what we read so far. HUGE Difference !

“”This is Us” would be lost without Justin.” Hardly!!! This wonderful show has an amazing ensemble cast, which includes Justin Harley. He is by no means THE “star” of the show. To say the show would be “lost” without him is ridiculous. In fact, his role is not even the most interesting.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.
