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.

FRANKLY, I WOULD GET SOOO WARM HAVING A LONG, THICK HEAD OF HAIR LIKE HERS. SHE NEEDS TO BE UPDATED. WHERE IS HER HAIRDRESSER ?? PERHAPS IT IS A CONTRACT ISSUE THAT SHE MUST ALWAYS HAVE THIS MESS OF HAIR. JUST SAYIN

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.

I truly adored every aspect of the wacky, feisty, sassy Caroline. I loved my time at Bold! Don’y be sad, even though she is gone, I promise Brad and the writers have some awesome drama up their sleeves for you! Thank you for all your support and love over the years! Don’t worry I hear Caroline has a brunette doppelgänger over in Salem, might be worth investigating.”

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin Are Among Dozens Charged In Alleged College Admissions Scandal For Their Kids

On Tuesday, two women very familiar to soap audiences, actresses Felicity Huffman (Ex-Lynette, Desperate Housewives) and Lori Loughlin (Ex-Jodie, Edge of Night) are among dozens of wealthy parents, elite college coaches and college prep executives accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious colleges, according to a massive federal indictment that has been handed down.

According to prosecutors, the scheme was in two parts: either parents allegedly paid a college prep organization to take the test on behalf of students or to correct their answers.  Then, the organization allegedly bribed college coaches to help admit the students into college as recruited athletes, regardless of their actual abilities.  The documents also allege that some defendants created fake athletic profiles for students to make them appear to be successful athletes.

CNN is reporting: “As of now, 50 people were charged in the criminal investigation that went by the name ‘Operation Varsity Blues.”‘ Those arrested include two SAT/ACT administrators, one exam proctor, nine coaches at elite schools, one college administrator and 33 parents, according to Andrew Lelling, the US attorney for Massachusetts.

The parents were alleged to be from a “catalog of wealth and privilege,” including actors, CEOs, a fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm.  “This case is about the widening corruption of elite college admissions through the steady application of wealth combined with fraud. There can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy,” stated Lelling.

As to Huffman and Loughlin’s parts in the scandal: Felicity has been charged with felony conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  She was arrested without incident at her home.   Huffman is accused of paying $15,000 to William Rick Singer’s fake charity the Key Worldwide Foundation to facilitate cheating for her daughter on the SATs, the complaint says.   Another cooperating witness told authorities he purportedly traveled from Tampa to a West Hollywood Test Center to administer Huffman’s daughter’s exam.  She received a 1420 on her test, which was 400 points higher than a PSAT taken a year earlier without the same administrator, the complaint states.

Loughlin, best known to TV audiences as Becky on Full House, and now its reboot, Fuller House. is facing the same felony charge: conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.  Her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, was also charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

According to documents, the duo allegedly agreed to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the USC crew team, even though they did not participate in crew, the complaint said.   The complaint includes emails between Singer and Giannulli in which the two discussed a “game plan” for his older daughter, whose academic qualifications were at or below the “low-end” of USC’s admission standards.  Singer facilitated bribes to Donna Heinel, the senior associate athletic director at USC, who then got the students in to USC as recruited athletes, according to the complaint.

Giannulli was arrested without incident, and the FBI served a warrant for Loughlin, but she was not home at the time. She is on a flight to Los Angeles where she is expected to surrender at the Central District Court later this afternoon.

So, what do you think about this shocker involving Huffman and Loughlin, and the corruption via the those of privilege, wealth, and status? Share your thoughts on this developing story via the comment section below.
