News out today exclusively from TV is that actor, Sean Patrick Flanery is headed to the  number one CBS soap, The Young and the Restless. Flanery is set to debut in the new role of Sam, who is said to be a salt of the earth country veterinarian.  Word is that Flanery’s Sam is set to be paired with none other than the long-standing troubled Sharon Newman, played by Sharon Case!

    Ugh, another new character, why should I get interested. I loved Daniel Goddard as Cane and they just killed him off. Plus, Y&R lost the #1 spot women 18-49 and still won’t give up any info. I am really disappointed in my 28 year soap. Bring back Daniel as Cane Ashby, no twin or ghost will do.

    Thank you.

    I couldn’t agree more with Christina! Enough is enough! Bring back our beloved character Cane back to his wife and children…. as a living breathing man, no ghost story, the viewers and there are thousands of them want the REAL thing!.

    Desperate CBS???? Worried about you fan base jumping ship??? You should be, we feel like you DO NOT care about what we want!!!! You are a fan based success or failure!! Decide which one you want to be, listen to us or watch us go to ABC or NBC. Unlike you we are NOT afraid and we WILL be heard! All it takes is a press release and a date and that half a million viewers most likely will return!!!

    I liked the character of Cane, too, but the last few years of his story have sucked. He’s always propping up Lily when she is in one crisis after another, i.e. cancer, having a baby, modeling woes with Jabot. Watching them together would immediately put my DVR into fast forward mode. Total snooz-fest in my opinion. I feel the same about Malcolm and Sofia’s scenes. Utterly boring.

    Y&R does not need new characters, they need vision. Daniel Goddard’s portrayal of Cane Ashby was brilliant. The epic “Cane and Lily “love story was and is magical. The decision to kill Cane in the first week of sweeps defies logic. The viewer was led to believe that this was “Cane’s” story not Colin’s. It is not relevant at this time because the story is dead and there is no longer any need for Colin. Y&R is no longer character driven, it jumps from one plot point to the next. The only consistent thing about Y&R is the fact that it consistently disappoints. The falling ratings , a loss of 707,000 viewers, and a loss of the # 1 spot of the 18 – 49 demos since the killing of Cane tell the story. Bring back Daniel Goddard as Cane Ashby, no twin or ghost.
    Thank you

    I agree with everything Mary said! The killing of Cane was a bad decision and that ended his story! There really isn’t any need for Colin now. The writers need to start writing for the characters on canvass and Y&R needs to stop bringing in new characters the viewers are not interested or invested in. Y&R needs to bring Daniel Goddard back as Cane alive!

      To all of the people saying get rid of Colin – “there’s no need to have him there” blah blah blah…… be patient. It’s clear that they have more in store for this character otherwise he would have been shot right along with Cane. People have been romanticizing this Cane and Lily thing into unbeliveable proportions. They were not a compelling couple, IMO. The storyline was a complete bore up until the climax. For months, I would forward through Lily’s completely ridiculous oblivion to what was happening with Cane and his “buddy” from Australia. She’s as dumb as a box of hair.

        The more I think of it, I think that Cane and Blake should have hooked up! Now there’s a compelling storyline! Lily would have really had a reason to cry! 🙂

    I can’t believe how stupid the show is becoming, you pair stoopid sharon with ugly adam, the man who kidnapped her son, you have nicholas sleeping around with ugly diane, yuck! And victor, forget about it, he’s a loser, this guy is the worst actor on tv. It seems the writers are lost in translation. Neil hooks up with his brother fiance??? She’s not very attractive with that crazy make-up she’s wearing, those colors are not right for her complexion.

    Why does this new guy automatically have to mean no Daniel? He can still come back.

    Big mistake getting rid of Cane/Daniel good character and popular actor. The powers that be don’t care what the fans want. Y&R is not even close to a must watch anymore.

    just asking—does anyone else feel as i do that victorias hair looks like a worn-out mop from walmart complete with split ends and needs intense conditioning. it is jjust my opinion that her hair is far too long and looks completely out of date for someone her age. get it cut in a shorter bob. it looks like a huge mess. thanks i feel better.

      LOL, been thinking the same thing! Some conditioning, a haircut would do her good.

      I am a bit late on the reply but I just found this site………. I think her hair is a statement of her disheveled life with Billy… you will see it come back into neat and tight when she gets back to Newman…. it is part of her wardrobe… it has been getting wilder by the day…

      I agree with all the posts as well that they have no long term planning plot lines… it jumps day to day from one thing to another. I also notice that the story with Sharon and Sam seems to be completely set aside. Is she off on mat leave or something so they filmed months of her and Sam with no interaction with anyone else. It could have been filmed and then clipped in as they need it to make her appear present… Same with Tucker in the coma…. These people have lives to live and vacations to take. On Global most recently the actor who plays Esther said they film daily one show where most other soaps take a week of filming for one hour. Like the night time soaps they need more momentary action with an overall soap feel. Today’s viewer is more savvy… especially the 18 – 45 year olds.

    I hope Sam becomes a regular of Young and the Restless, he plays a nice guy and Sharon needs someone different and more permanent.

On Tuesday’s edition of CBS Daytime’s The Talk@Home, The Bold and the Beautiful and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, Denise Richards (Shauna) appeared on the series.

During her segment, Denise discussed how she felt about B&B being the first American TV show back in production amidst the coronavirus pandemic and if she felt safe returning to work.  Richards also discussed how the love scenes and more intimate moments of the series will be done either with real-life partners standing in for their on-screen love interests, or a blow-up doll.

Denise expressed: “I’m excited to go back to work. I think it’s important for us to also be safe, but to move forward. And Brad Bell [executive producer and head writer, B&B) has implemented a very safe environment, I feel, for all of us, so I think it’s important.”

As to the COVID-19 testing protocols, Richards explained:  “Every week we’re tested. If there are more than two actors, we have mannequins. If there is an intimate scene, they’ve asked us if our significant other can step in for that person. Otherwise, we’ll be doing a love scene with a doll.”

It was then Denise confirmed that her husband, Aaron Phypers, will be stepping in for intimate scenes with love interest Ridge Forrester, played by Thorsten Kaye: “He (Phypers) is standing in. And he came with me today. He had to have his COVID test too, every week the whole cast does. He starts standing in next week.”

Watch what Denise shared on her return to B&B below.

Who Will Be B&B’s New Love Interest For Steffy Forrester?

The Bold and the Beautiful is back in production, the first soap to do so amidst the coronavirus pandemic, and there has been much speculation and talk for awhile now as to just what the future holds in story for one of its leading stars, Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester).

It appears that instead of re-treading a romance for Steffy with Dollar Bill Spencer (Don Diamont) or his son, Liam Spencer (Scott Clifton), the series is about to bring in some new suitors into Steffy’s romantic life!

According to B&B’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, he has big plans for Jacqui in the months ahead, as he related to TV Insider.

When Bell was asked about the new love interest coming in to the show for Steffy,  he revealed: “We have a great story coming up for Jacqui. Steffy has been committed to her work, her daughter Kelly…but people have been wondering when a new man will enter her life. He’s coming. She’ll have a period of time where, in fact, quite a few men will be after her – as they should be. She’s spectacular and unique. I’m thrilled to say that this next chapter will be very much about Steffy. I always feel comfortable putting drama in the hands of Jacqui Wood.”

In addition, recently on  The Michael Fairman Channel’s recent Daytime-Emmy virtual chat with Wood, Scott Clifton and Heather Tom, the actress also alluded to a potential new love interest for Steffy, too.   You can watch that below.

So, who would you suggest to play opposite Jacqueline MacInnes Wood as her new love interest?  Share your casting thoughts via the comment section.
