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 !!!

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

CeeCee

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.

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.

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.

Sue

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…..

Jamesj75

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 🙂

Scott (ATWT Fan)

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

CeeCee
CeeCee

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

Mary SF

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.

mollie
mollie

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! 🙂

Lynda

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.

Jamesj75

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…

Y-E-S!!!!!

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?

Elite Advisors

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.

Caroll Spinney, Legendary Sesame Street Puppeteer Behind Big Bird And Oscar The Grouch, Dead At 85

More sorrowful news on Sunday.  Caroll Spinney, the legendary puppeteer behind beloved Sesame Street characters Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch,died today,  at the age 85 at his home in Connecticut.  Spinney has been suffering from dystonia for quite some time.

For the body of his life’s work, Spinney received many significant honors.  He was the recipient of four Daytime Emmy awards, as well as the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2006, the Library of Congress’ Living Legend Award, two Grammy awards and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

PhotoL SesameStreetWorkshop

The Sesame Street workshop put on this press release upon his passing: “Caroll was an artistic genius whose kind and loving view of the world helped shape and define Sesame Street from its earliest days in 1969 through five decades, and his legacy here at Sesame Workshop and in the cultural firmament will be unending. His enormous talent and outsized heart were perfectly suited to playing the larger-than-life yellow bird who brought joy to generations of children and countless fans of all ages around the world, and his lovably cantankerous grouch gave us all permission to be cranky once in a while.

Welcomed to Sesame Street by Jim Henson, Caroll thrived under a mentorship that led to a decades-long great friendship. Caroll’s unparalleled career saw Big Bird visit China with Bob Hope, dance with the Rockettes, be celebrated with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a U.S. postage stamp, and named a “Living Legend” by the Library of Congress. A favorite highlight for Caroll was conducting symphony orchestras and performing with them across the United States, Australia, and China, allowing him to personally connect with families everywhere through the music of Sesame Street. Caroll Spinney gave something truly special to the world. With deepest admiration, Sesame Workshop is proud to carry his memory – and his beloved characters – into the future. Our hearts go out to Caroll’s beloved wife, Debra, and all of his children and grandchildren.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R's Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

Jason Thompson (Billy,, Y&R): We lost a member of the family last night, one of our producers, Lisa De Cazotte. I first worked with Lisa when she produced the 2nd season of “Night Shift”. Years later and currently on @YandR_CBS  She was kind and smart. Our thoughts are with her family.”

Eric Martsolf (Brady, DAYS): The kindness and opportunity this woman furnished me was immeasurable. We have lost one of the hardest working and graceful producers in our genre. I will miss you terribly, Lisa. #RIP”

Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, Y&R) “Sometimes you recognize those women who are part of “the tribe”. Whether you know them for 20 years or 20 minutes… they are still part of your tribe. Lucky for me. Godspeed beautiful Lisa”

Angelica Rosas McDaniel (Ex-CBS Daytime Exec) “Last night we lost a light in this world with the passing of Lisa De Cazotte. Lisa was smart, strong, kind, vibrant, an incredible friend and an Emmy winning producer on many beloved shows. I was blessed to know her. Sending love to her family and friends.”
