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,… Read more »

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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 🙂

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

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
Guest
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! 🙂

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.

@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…

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… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
