Shemar Moore On His Return To Y&R: "A lot Of People Get Successful And It’s Like Their Soap Days Never Happened. I’ll Never Be That Guy!"

For many years fans of the number one daytime drama The Young and the Restless have been hoping Shemar Moore would make a return to the role he made soap-famous … that of Malcolm Winters!  The Daytime Emmy winner last appeared on the soap back in 2005!

Fast-forward to last week, where viewers learned the news that the Criminal Minds star is on his way back to Genoa City for a two episode appearance on the upcoming September 10th and 11th episodes.

Shemar spoke to the New York Post about Malcolm’s comeback, and what it means personally for Moore stating: “The fans haven’t forgotten about me and it’s nice to see the excitement is still there.  And I hope it’s not the only time I can do this.  I hope they write (the episodes) in a way that maybe this is something I can do from time to time.  A lot of people get successful and it’s like their soap days never happened.  I’ll never be that guy.  I’ve always said I wouldn’t be where I am today without Y&R and Malcolm Winters, and without (late show creator) Bill Bell taking a chance on me.”

So, do you hope this marks the beginning of more Moore on Y&R?  What do you think about Shemar’s statement about how he will never look down on his time on the soaps, when some actors who have gone on to fame wanted it taken off their resume?

The mark of a good & great actor is to realize all their acting experiences add to the resume which enables them to move to other roles, as Shemar has done. It was obvious he ‘had something’ special on Y&R and his switch to prime time seemed a natural transition for him.
It will probably be a joy to return to the old cast (and meet the newer cast too) and have a lighter storyline than on CM.
He doesn’t need any ‘Good Luck’ returning, as he’ll ‘ace’ it for sure.

Its very honest and gracious and nice to hear. Its like Carrie Underwood. She always acknowledged American Idol when she won at awards for several years. She thanked the show and the fans for getting her where she was. Now after umpteen zillion awards it might sound like she is beating a dead horse to thank American Idol, so she doesnt usually, but always the fans. Shemar and Carrie are classy.

Welcome back Shemar! Here’s to hoping you can stick around for more than a couple of shows next time.

all the hoopla over a two episode appearance ..
That is so lame ..
He’ll probably total 17 minutes of screen time in two episodes, or less … lol

how’s about the glass is half full………


Now now Su…you were over the moon excited about Donna Mills’ 37 second appearance on GH!! At least this is someone who has 20 years of history on the show and who honours his soap roots. Its not a stunt.

Johnny, stop making sense!

Lolol!! Sorry Harry!

preach shemar!!! i hope the fans and producers can continue to give redaric a chance to shine like bill bell let shemar!!!
more tyler!!!!!

So much class wrapped up in one beautiful body! And such humility! Can’t wait to see you back on #YR Shemar. Lily can use a little help fro her bio Dad and I hope you turn Hillary’s head so both Neil and Devon dump her!

I fret any air time the Winters family gets because the stories written for them are terrible BUT I commend this actor for giving props to the soap genre and not forgetting where he got his big break.

In your opinion. Cause right now The Winters are about the ONLY thing keeping me watching. Maybe in the past the Winters were overlooked, but this year, they have been incredible In my humble opinion. I mean to be honest I could say that about EVERY family on this show. The writing for every family has been awful. So to just single out The Winters is a little unfair. Except 4 Lily #1. I ALWAYS despise Lily #1.

Your right, the WHOLE show has been written poorly but I singled out the Winters’ because of Shemar’s return.

Travis, I agree. The Winters’ family is stepping it up a bit. The triangle is vaguely interesting.
Lily of the Valley represents everything I detest–she utilizes Valley Girl Speech, engages in vocal growling, uses a flirtatious tone of voice whether she is speaking to Kane or Abby, and while trying to play a scene replete this tragic undertones, she seems to be thinking about her next manicure or that Fendi bag she saw in the window of Fenmore’s. De Yawn is as boring watching a bally bug trying to right itself up and Neal makes Mr. Brady look like a wild bad ass by comparison.
So yes, right now the Winters’ family is the best thing going on Y&R which speaks volumes about the current state of the writing. Having Shemar return for a couple of days will be exciting but will leave the viewers feeling some what sad because his appearance will remind them of what once was.

It’s great that he’s willing and able to return and hasn’t forgotten his soap roots. They’re nothing to be ashamed of. Looking forward to seeing him as Malcolm!


People (actors) will always have fans because he is not full of himself. I like Criminal Minds.He and the rest of the actors are great. Julianne Moore also returned to As the World Turns unlike others who wouldn’t. The fans appreciate this and wil lof course support and watch the other things they do.Good Luck and even tho I don’t like Y&R, I will watch those two days.

Smart man–as my pappy used to say– “Never forget the one that brung you.”

WB Shemar!

“I’ll never be that guy” – you mean successful? Cuz a Criminal Minds reject isn’t exactly Johnny Depp-level of success.

Criminal Minds reject? Your statement was all kinds of stupid.

Criminal Minds is one of my fav dramas. He has had a good run in primetime.

Very classy. Look forward to his return even if it brief.

The Winters’ storyline needs a boost. Can’t stand the current state of the Winters family. Neal seems a pathetic fool and I can’t stand Devon or Lilly. Cane is just a non-entity and Hillary can do so much better than Neal or Devon. This family was once one of my faves, now I FF through all their scenes. Hope Malcolm can do something to provide some interest. I WANT to care, I just find ALL of them awful right now. It’s sad.

I’ll gladly watch Shemar for one, two, or any number of episodes on Y&R. Not only is he humble, but he is great on the eyes! I’ll watch him on any show! Shemar was on Arsenio recently and talked for about 1/2 hour? Plus Criminal Minds is always on many TV channels.

Good to have you back, if only for a couple of days, Shemar!

Good for him for not forgetting his roots in acting. Two days or not it is more than some will do…IF they even acknowledge ever being on a soap.

Welcome back Shemar we missed u…HOT!

It is my belief that Shemar Moore is a very gracious man.
He is full of gratitude and doesn’t think he is to important
to go back to day time.
Truly an amazing man
Not to mention, he looks amazing with a full head of hair
or a shaved head!
He is a beautiful person inside and out from what I’ve
Bless you sir!
The world needs more people like you !

‘The Talk’ Renewed For 15th and Final Season to End in December; Does Its Cancellation Make Room for ‘The Gates’?

Things just got very interesting over at CBS daytime with the announcement today that The Talk is going to end its run on the network after its 15th season, and that season looks to be shortened as the series will come to its conclusion in December of 2024.

In a joint statement, Amy Reisenbach, President, CBS Entertainment and David Stapf, President, CBS Studio, shared, “The Talk broke new ground when it launched 14 years ago by returning daytime talk to CBS with a refreshing and award-winning format. Throughout the years, it has been a key program on CBS’ top rated daytime line-up as it brought timely, important and entertaining topics and discussions into living rooms around the globe.”

Reisenback and Stapf added, “It goes without saying that hosting and producing a year-round talk show is no easy task, and we express our sincere gratitude to our amazing hosts Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood, our Executive Producer/Showrunner Rob Crabbe and the hardworking producing team and crew.

Giving props to those who co-hosted or worked on the show through the years including: Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen Moonves, Carrie Ann Inaba Leah Ramimi, Marissa Janet Winokur, Holly Robinson Peete, Eve, Aisha Tyler, and Sharon Osbourne, the joint statement added, “We also want to acknowledge our former show hosts and colleagues who contributed throughout the seasons. We truly appreciate the skill, creativity, and dedication everyone involved brought to the show every day.  And of course, we thank the numerous guests who appeared, and the millions of viewers who tuned in daily. For the final season, we plan to celebrate the show and give it the proper sendoff it deserves when it concludes in December 2024.”

While no firm decision or announcement has been given at this time, it seems most likely that The Talk’s time slot could be given to the new soap opera in development The Gates from CBS Studio Ventures and from longtime soap opera writer. Michele Val Jean.  As previously reported, The Gates features the lives of a wealthy Black family who reside in a posh, gated community.

The Talk was originally the brainchild of Sara Gilbert, who had developed the show when it launched back 2010 and it replaced the beloved As the World Turns which went off the air after 54 years when CBS canceled it.

So, what do you think of The Talk being canceled? Will this make room for The Gates to begin to air in its spot beginning in 2025? Share your reactions to the news via the comment section.
