Huh??? This came out of left field. What happened to Darnell?

Character definitely needed a retooling. He was just a dry nag. Constantly preaching with no appeal or chemistry with any leading ladies especially after Hillary died
Me thinks a triangle was planned with him/ hillary/ devon but shelved after Mishaels departure
In the young stud category i d rather Josh bring back his creation Tyler. Especially now that Abby will be single again. He had charisma and looks for days. Shame he and his sis Leslie were axed when a new regime came in. JFP.
Speaking of axing new families created once a new regime takes over I really hope now that Arturo is leaving, that the Rosales stay on. I thouroughly enjoy Rey, Lola and Mia. Mia is a vixen Genoa city needs and Lola/ Kyle/Summer triangle is hot!

I’m sorry, Darnell wasn’t doing it for me. There was no fire, no personality, no presence in his performance. Otherwise, I’ll miss Arturo; Mia and Rey can go. Lola is a gem with Kyle. Finally, can we update the opening? Some of the newer contract players have been on for a year and their portraits are still not featured in the opening.

Why bother recasting a character who has been in search of a story since he came to town?

Now we all know every soap needs at least one doctor who can basically do everything–GC has been missing that since that guy who was Abby’s husband left town– personally I would love for Olivia to be that doctor instead of her son.

Not sure about why Tonya Lee Williams isnt returning for Kristoffs memorial. I know coming from Canada she does alot of work behind the scenes up here, however im hoping something can happen because she is the quad of the legendary Winters/ Barber era of y n r. A young Liv and Dru at odds over Nate and Neil then Malcolm are everything. She belongs to mentor the younger set a la Tracy for the Abbotts

Hi Damien, I read on another website that Tonya Lee Williams was out of the country on another project and that is why she couldn’t be part of Kristoffs memorial…

Good..
The current Nathan is an emotionless android..
Hopefully, this Nathan will be totally different..

Yes, this guy looks like he’s got an edgy thing about him. Doesn’t look the type to be hand holding the ladies, just cause they are having a bad day. Wonder if he’ll be interested in the new doctor soon to be Devon’s guest, along with Ana,s father.

The characters mother needs to make an appearance this might help I heard the actress could not make it work for a few episodes she needs to be there for Neil’s death just like they screwed up with the funeral for Katherine her granddaughter Mac needed to be there and even Tucker though I hated that storyline this pettiness of EP not liking certain actors and can’t do it right because of it ruins the show the fans deserve better.

Blame the writers, not the actor. he was given no storyline that made any sense what so ever.

Oh, thank ye gods!! Please…I invoke you to put some fire ‘neath new Nate’s scrubs!!!!!!
And, what’s up with Victoria? She’s going through her middle-age crisis? Holy moly!! I am not into this lurid behavior—sex wih a complete stranger? She should know better!! no sense!!
I would love for nuNate to be paired with Victoria—–NO BILLY–NO CANE—-please!! Perhaps Nate can ground her “knees” and brain.

I had the same thoughts. Like mother like daughter, but Nicki would be appalled, and most likely not cheering Victoria on. One good thing though, she hasn’t taken up with Cain. I will really be upset if they ever get together, now that he and Lily are parting ways. I kind of see why Victoria would want to kick up her heels a bit, after dealing with J.T and Billy. What a jerk, following her to Vegas. I wonder what Victor was doing there? Probably hiring another thug to take care of someone, ala Phyllis and Marco.

Just saw the new and improved Dr. today. I really like him, and very good looking. Can’t wait to hear from others.

This new Nate is WAYYYYY better than the last one. They are pairing him with Abby and I am feeling the heat already! Great casting!

Thinking the same thing today. Depending on your age, you may not know him, but this new Nate reminds me of the young Johnny Mathis. I really don’t care for new Nate’s hair.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”
