Sexy Exes & Phyllis Waking Up Are Just Some Of The Highlights This Fall On The Young and the Restless!



A screaming Phyllis as played by Gina Tognoni as the character finally awakens from her coma, and the arrival of Scott Elrod as Avery’s (Jessica Collins) ex Joe are just some of the highlights that are being touted by CBS Daytime in their latest fall promo for the number one soap, The Young and the Restless!

And there’s Ashley (Eileen Davidson) seemingly making her presence and intention known of taking over at Jabot, and the proposal by Nick (Joshua Morrow) to Sharon (Sharon Case), and then there is that little, err big secret about Summer’s (Hunter King) paternity that could blow the roof of Shick’s relationship and more!

In the promo the voice-over and title cards say:  “If You Miss The Young and the Restless This Fall, You’ll Miss Everything: Sweet Proposals … Hidden Desires … Shocking Secrets … Unexpected Surprises and Sexy Exes … Don’t Miss Out!”

Watch the promo after the jump, and then let us know what story and arrival you are looking forward to most!

Ashley being back is probably what I’m most looking forward to…. assuming she gets a real story. Lots to look forward to with Phyllis being on canvas. I’m probably in the minority here, but I don’t see a point of breaking Dylan & Avery up right now. Adding Avery’s ex in to the mix doesn’t excite me. I’m not familiar w/ the actor, who might turn out to be the best thing since sliced bread… but if we are going to introduce new actors I wish the actors playing them were familiar soap faces. Can think of so many AMC, OLTL, GL, ATWT, & even off canvas GH & Days actors I would rather see coming on board.

I agree, Reagan. I personally want Dylan and Avery to stay together because their personalities match…snore. Seeing these two paired with others will be disastrous…BORING !!!

Ship Dylan to the Netherlands…

Noooooo…..!!!! LOL…I have family in Holland . You can’t sic Dylan on my people !…LOL.

CeeCee…or my people in Louisiana…LOL!!!!!

very good promo. maybe the action on Y&R is finally starting to heat up. Y&R needs to move stories along.

Yes, Robert. It certainly looks that way. What are the chances Joe will be paired with Phyllis?
I am starting to get excited about Y&R again…haven’t been in months…so, this is awesome.

I agree with that! These storylines go on and on forever! it’s just too long! I find that I lose interest and it feels like the writers “forget” a storyline for a while…. then one day break it out again.

Just use the orignal background music and I’ll be happy!:)))

I must say…one screaming promo and all I could think was UHOH..Phyllis is awake

Scott shouldv’e been Adam…Justin Hartley as Billy…Burgess as Joe…jmo!!!

I like it!

Joe looks like somebody that stepped right out of the 50’s.

Ahh, Scott/Joe…So absolutely beautiful, is he….I only wish I was born in that era if all the men looked like that, Lawrence.

Yeah, Y&R just might be back. I’m not ready to proclaim the current show runners as saviors just yet. JFP’s history is too sketchy for me to ever fully accept her as EP of this show. I’m still steamed about David Tom’s ouster. That was wrong. Abby also irritates me. The Winters clan have the collective personality of a dial tone. Other than those obvious problems, the show is on fire right now. The look and feel of the show is very similar to the days of Bill Bell and Kay Alden.

Hopefully this is a sign that Y&R is getting back on track. It was a very good promo and hopefully what comes next is equally as good. I’m really looking forward to Phyllis waking up, as well as Ashley’s return, and Kelly Sullivan coming to Y&R! I agree with Reagan above, I don’t see the point of breaking up Dylan and Avery now, but I guess it will add a bit of interest to the pairing, which is in desperate need right now.

But what I’m most looking forward too is Adam’s return! So much time has passed and the character is really needed right now. Plus, Justin Hartley is a very good actor, no he’s not Michael Muhney and no one else is except MM, but I’m really hopeful that his portrayal of Adam will be good.

Yawn, another lame attempt to attract viewers.

A good marketing team can make paint drying sound exciting—it is one thing to attract viewers it is whole different ballgame keeping them.

Oh, I don’t know about that. Phyllis waking up could be a very good thing.

It is so uncanny how Scott Elrod looks so much like my gorgeous and sexy Italian husband. I can’t wait…yeeees! Y&R, hurry and get back to that pinnacle of holding the #1 spot in the ratings….

Scott should have been a recast of Sonny’s son on GH.

Sadly this promo is just a retread of the same ol’ stories the show has been forcing on us for months — Devon and Hillary’s “forbidden” desire; Nick looking like a fool giving his heart to Sharon (after she married his half-brother and father); Nu-Billy and Chelsea making chemistry free eyes at one another while Victoria stands around unable to believe that the man she continues to reject isn’t curled up in the fetal position and giving up on life as a result of said rejection; Victor’s fruitless search for that damn secret of Sharon’s — mixed with the arrival of Avery’s ex (anything that gives her and Dylan more screen time can’t be good) and the impending return of Faux-lis (ain’t nobody ever gonna replace Michelle Stafford as proven by that flashback Jack had last week).

The only arrival I’m looking forward to is some new writers.

Well said Alan….The part about new writes is spot on! Fire all of them!!

Alan…y-e-s!!!!! Y&R needs BRAND N-E-W writers ASAP!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, the current so-called writers just ain’t cutting it. No. And, most of all, I think that Y&R needs a BRAND N-E-W Executive Producer ASAP!!!!! That A-W-F-U-L Jill Farren Phelps has N-O CLUE at all about Y&R’s history or N-O CLUE at all about running a soap. Bottom Line Here: Jill Farren Phelps needs to BOUNCE…..

Alan, Sue, & Jay: Zing, zing, zing! I am totally with you!

A new executive producer, new writers, and new storylines are needed, as the viewers are the ones getting restless!

James…not only am I getting RESTLESS, but, I am also getting EMOTIONALLY BORED out of my s-k-u-l-l!!!!! Total D-R-E-C-K!!!!! And…I think that some of the current Y&R cast/characters need SERIOUS TRIMMING…ASAP!!!!!! Yep.

I, for one, am really ready for the “secret” of Summer’s paternity to be resolved. Who’s her real daddy? Nick or Jack? Let’s wrap it up, writers.

I hope it is Nick 🙂

It’s already been revealed that NICK is the real baby daddy; Sharon switched the results in order to get back together with Nick.

It IS Nick. That has already been revealed before Phyllis went into a coma, mollie.

On soaps that doesn’t mean anything LOL. They could easily write Sharon’s secret comes out and her life is blown to bits by it. Then Jack finally has enough sense to order his own DNA test, which confirms him as the father and we find out Sharon while off her meds only imagined she changed the results. It depends on the mood of the writers, what story can milk the most drama from– when it comes paternity tests in soaps nothing is written in stone.

Yeah for Nick! I thought that Sharon, herself, wasn’t sure if her flashbacks of switching the DNA test results were real or a product of her Bi-polar imaginations…so, that left us, the audience, unsure also if a switch *really* happened.

I hope Nick finds out SOON! 🙂

Sharon has remarked a few times that she didn’t know If her flashes of memory were real memories or memories of a hallucination.

IMO, Summer will stay Jack’s whiny lil sweet pea.

I liked the promo. Hope CBS runs it during primetime too.

@CeeCee I disagree I think that they are comfortable with each other and that could be interpreted as boring.

Mix them up and it could be a lot of fun. I am interested vin seeing Avery with Joe and lets see Dylan move around the canvas a bit, try him with Phyllis, Ashley etc and see how it goes.

But I agree with other posters i am totally looking forward to fall.

The promo looks interesting, but it’s lipstick on a pig.

Here is a promo I want to see: “New and improved: The Young and the Restless has a new producer! No longer will boring characters (Dylan) be shoved down the viewers’ throats, no longer will history be rewritten, no longer will veteran actors be disrespected and discarded! Also, Michael Muhney returns as Adam Newman!”

Then, you’d have my attention, enthusiasm, and admiration!

James…R-I-G-H-T O-N!!!!! I mean…Y-O-U-R promo is something that I can get behind!!!!! Thank You.

Now…here is a promo that would, IMO, TRULY ROCK: “Soap Extra Soap Extra…read all about it!!!!! THE FABULOUS Kay Alden and John F. Smith are officially re-named as Y&R’s Head Writers. Also, THE WONDERFUL Tricia Cast (aka Nina) permanently comes home to Y&R. Most of all, the SUPER-AWESOME Jamesj75 is officially hired as Y&R’s BRAND NEW Executive Producer. There will be more wonderful details as they develop. Stay tuned…


Jaybird369, you’re too kind! But I know that already, Friend!

I love your promo idea, too!

James…you’re too kind, also!!!!! But, of course, you already know that!!!!!

I’ll talk to ya’ soon…flip side and all.


I liked the promo, it has some promise & some hope. The only two stories that worked this summer was ShickWinters the rest was trash. I don’t want Mariah to be vile towards Sharon maybe very pissed and go after her in another way but not this, can’t any of today’s writers write anything but hateful stories?

Yes… I am excited to see Phyllis back with Jack ( where he belongs) and hopefully Kelly can find someone else…. I liked the character better with Cynthia W but I feel Cady is annoying to me. The weird part is that Meredith Baxter is playing her mom, and she looks closer to Jacks age, I was just wondering how nuPhyllis will look paired with Jack.

I look forward to some new characters as I think the show as it stands is a bit stale. Avery and Dylan are so boring…. I don’t dislike them, just not at all interesting on screen.

I LOVE that Ashley is back, as Eileen is just amazing anyway. So hopefully they will write a real story for her instead of background ….

Not loving this Neil story.. Hilary in love with his son? Talk about watching paint dry!

Bring Chloe back, she was fun to watch….recast her. Looking forward to nuAdam and Chelsea…. should be fun, and lets find a real Billy. This one doesn’t do it for me.

John J. York Returns as General Hospital’s Mac Scorpio and Shares, “Expect The You-Know-What to Hit the Fan”

General Hospital fans were overjoyed when John J. York (Mac Scorpio) revealed he was back on set and taping all-new episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

The beloved GH star was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders, back in 2022.  Later, he underwent treatment for the cancer in September of 2023, which took him off the show while he went through a blood stem cell transplant and the recovery.

Now, those who have waited for Mac to finally get to the truth – that Cody Bell (Josh Kelly) is his biological son – may finally get their wish!  Speaking with TV Insider on his imminent return (he is back on-screen this coming Wednesday, June 19th), York shared on what’s about to go down, “Expect the you-know-what to hit the fan and let the dust come down and settle where it will, so get ready.”

York also prepped viewers that he will look a little different when he first seen back in Port Charles, due to his cancer treatments, “My hair grew back nice. I was not sure how my hair would look because I was bald. Now it’s short, like a military cut.”

Speaking on his own health and life, John shared, “With the MDS, if everything goes well with the bone marrow transplant, that should be handled. With the multiple smoldering myeloma, smoldering being the key word, it just kind of stays there in my system. There is a small chance that it could turn into full-blown leukemia at some point, but the goal is for me to die of old age before I die of any kind of blood cancer. I feel fantastic and all the blood tests that I take once a month have all pointed in the direction that things are all going in the right direction, which is really good.”

Are you looking forward to the moment that Mac realizes Cody is his son? What do you think his reaction will be as he has been duped all this time? Happy, as we are, that John is back on-screen on GH? Comment below.

One Life to Live Alum Jonathan Groff Wins First Tony Award For ‘Merrily We Roll Along’

Finally, in his third Tony Award nomination, the multi-talented Jonathan Groff, was named the Tony winner in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his work in the Broadway revival of Sondheim’s Merrily We Roll Along at the 77th annual Tony Awards broadcast on CBS.

In one of the hotly contested categories of the night, Groff bested Brody Grant for The Outsiders, Dorian Harewood for The Notebook, Brian d’Arcy James for Days of Wine and Roses, and Oscar and Olivier Award winner Eddie Redmayne for Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club.

Many thought Groff should have won a Tony back in 2007 for his performance in the original Broadway cast of Spring Awakening, but ‘Merrily’ was the ticket to victory.

One Life to Live fans may remember Groff played the teenager Henry Mackler back in 2007, in what was to be a long arc of a storyline involving a school shooting, but his role as cut short after 11 episodes, due to the real-life Virginia Tech school shooting in April of 2007.

Delivering the most emotional and heartfelt acceptance speech Tony night, Jonathan began. “I grew up in a house surrounded by cornfields in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. I was raised by my parents, Jim and Julie Groff, and my brother David, and the three of them were sitting right there. Thank you for letting me dress up like Mary Poppins when I was three. Thank you for letting me act out scenes from I Love Lucy on my 10th birthday. Thank you for always allowing my freak flag to fly without ever making me feel weird about it.”

He added, “Even if they didn’t always understand me “my family knew the lifesaving power of fanning the flame of a young person’s passions without judgment. I walked through life with an open heart because you let me know that I could. Thank you to all of my teachers back in Pennsylvania, especially Sue Fisher, who told me I could do this for a living.”

Speaking to how Broadway has impacted his life, Groff further teared-up and expressed, “I moved to New York exactly 20 years ago this year and I got a job waiting tables and became a volunteer for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights Aids. All I wanted was to be a part of this community. A thank you to everyone involved in Spring Awakening who not only made that dream come true, but also inspired me to come out of the closet when I was 23. I’m now 39 and musical theater is still saving my soul.”

“Maria Friedman, thank you for letting me be your Franklin Shepherd in this production of Merrily and allowing me the chance to accept respect and express both the lightest and darkest parts of myself,” Groff continued. “Daniel Radcliffe and Lindsay Mendez, you are more than old friends, you are soul mates, and I’m looking forward to watching each other change for the rest of our lives. Thank you to every member of the extraordinary cast for lifting this Merrily into the spiritual stratosphere.”

Groff concluded with, “And finally, I just want to say that when I was a kid in Pennsylvania, I used to record the Tony Awards on a VHS tape and watch the performances over and over again. And to actually be able to be a part of making theater in this city and just as much to be able to watch the work of this incredible, incredible community, has been the greatest gift and pleasure of my life. I thank you and thank you so much for this honor.”
