I’m so happy for Austin he’s doing amazing job… That’s all I’ll say about the bully storyline.

Hurray to Austin for his wonderful work! 🙂

I’m troubled with this storyline. I can remember when I was in high school, and I know how Shane feels. I was also bullied, but not near as bad as Shane is being. There were times I felt like killing myself, but I did not go through with it. I think though that this is an interesting storyline, and I do like Andrew Trischitta as Jack. He even has a mean voice, because it is deep. I hope that Shane does not kill himself, and Jack will get what is coming to him. Maybe being shipped off to military school would straighten Jack out, if Blair can not knock some sense into her son. Jack has what is coming to him, and I hope that he learns his lesson. Good job Austin and Andrew though, you both are doing a good job playing Shane and Jack.

Boy this storyline is interesting. The sad thing is that it does happen. Jack needs to be shipped off to military school, or maybe Juvinile Hall would be a good place for him. Jack needs to be put into his place, and I know that he will pay for his cruel actions. The storyline is about to get interesting, and I hope that Rex and Gigi can stop Shane from killing himself. Shane will need help us well, but he will get it from his parents, and there is a lot of people who care for him. I can not wait to see what happens to Jack, and he will be in a lot of trouble. I think that Andrew does a good job playing Jack, and his voice sounds mean because it is deep. Good luck to Shane, and Andrew keep on doing a good job playing Jack, but I hope that Jack straightens out. He needs to be put into his place.

I’m sorry get help with a parent or doctor

Eric Braeden on The Young and the Restless Four-Year Renewal: “We Never Take Any of This For Granted, Trust Me”

On Tuesday, CBS officially gave The Young and the Restless a four-year renewal which will take the daytime drama series onward through its 55th anniversary season in 2027-2028.

Y&R has remained the top-rated soap opera for 36 consecutive years and CBS’ longest-running series in its storied history.

Sharing his reaction to the great news was Y&R’s iconic star, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman).  Standing outside of CBS Television City where The Young and the Restless is taped, Eric addressed the renewal in a video, and how the show could not have done this without the power of the fans all around the world.

Eric began, “We were renewed for four years. I’ve been coming to this studio for 44 years now, and now we have another four years added to it. How wonderful is that? And that’s thanks to you, to all of you, who are loyal fans all over the world.”

In addition, Braeden acknowledged how truly special the four-year pick-up is, when in this day and age, any series could get canceled at any time. “Love you all and we never take any of this for granted, trust me,” he shared. “Alright, you’d be cool. I’m very happy to hear about the four year renewal. I really am. Because in today’s world you can’t take anything for granted. And in the changing world of media, seemingly nothing is prominent. But we are here another four years. Alright, be cool everyone. I love it. And thank you. Thank you for your loyalty.”

Braeden began playing the role of ruthless business man, Victor Newman back in 1990. Throughout the years, he has shared that he initially didn’t want the role, but how it led him on an incredible journey playing this one-of-kind character on television.

What do you think about Eric acknowledgement of the enduring fans of The Young and the Restless who have kept tuning-in through thick and thin to the loves and the drama of the residents of Genoa City all these years? Comment below.

REPORT: CBS to Exercise Option to Renew The Bold and the Beautiful Through 2024-2025 Season

Hot on the heels of today’s announcement of The Young and the Restless being picked-up for four more season, many have wondered what this means for its sister soap, The Bold and the Beautiful.

According to a report by TV Line, during B&B’s last renewal pick-up for two years, CBS included an option for an additional year. So, when B&B’s current renewal expires this May, (just like Y&R’s was set to do) it included an additional option year.

A CBS source told the outlet, that the option will be exercised, extending B&B through the 2024-25 TV season. There most likely would be no official announcement for B&B continuing on for another year, since its not part of a newly-negotiated extension.

The Bold and the Beautiful was co-created by William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell and premiered on CBS back on March 23, 1987. The series will be celebrating its 37th anniversary next month.

Currently, viewers were in for a shock when this week, it appears that the powers-that-be ended the reign of terror of supervillain Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) or did they?

With Y&R renewed for four years, B&B expected for another under its current contract with CBS, Days of our Lives renewed through its 60th season and General Hospital continuing on, it looks like there is no need to worry at present time that the four remaining soap operas are going anywhere.

So, glad to know B&B will have CBS pick-up their option for at least another year? Comment below.
