Big news today from CBS! None other than daytime fan favorite and one of the stars of the hit CBS primetime series Criminal Minds is returning to his old stomping grounds at The Young and the Restless!

That’s right! Daytime Emmy winner Shemar Moore is returning to Genoa City as Malcolm Winters for the first time in nearly a decade with a two day appearance slated to air on the September 10th and 11th episodes of the number one soap opera!

During his two-day return, Moore will reunite with longtime friend and co-star Kristoff St. John, who portrays his on-screen brother, Neil Winters. In the episodes, Malcolm returns to Genoa City after leaving town years before without a proper goodbye. Now, he’s back for an important visit with the Winters family to make amends and catch up on everything he’s missed.

“I am excited about returning to The Young and the Restless as a special guest,” said Moore. “This is where I got my start and I am looking forward to reuniting with my soap opera family.”

So what do you think of the news of a Shemar return to GC?   Let us know!

Noooooo!!! He’s awful

No! The newbies are awful; Malcolm is a-w-e-s-o-m-e! I only hate to see him come back under JFP regime. I tell you, the woman is never leaving! Still glad, SM is coming back, even for just a couple of shows!

Matt…YES…THANK YOU!!!!! AGREED!!!!! And…

1. Yep…those newbies are awful!!!!! And…and in serious need of ACTING LESSONS…LOL!!!!! Yep.
2. Dude…to me, that JFP reminds me of an unwanted houseguest who refuses to leave. YIKES!!!!!
3. Y-E-S…Malcolm is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!! And…that Shemar Moore is ALL KINDS OF F-I-N-E!!!!! HELL TO THE YEAH!!!!!

Take care, Matt. A-C-E-S!!!!!

This speaks volumes as to what a good kid Shemar Moore is.

Sadly, the writers will completely screw it up just like they did when he returned in early 2005.

The Malcolm character has been destroyed for almost a decade now.

How right you are. She mar Moore is enigmatic in whatever role. Unfortunately, Y&R has the uncanny knack of pulverizing truly skilled actors who make an indelible impression.

Do not toy with my emotions! This better be real Mr. Fairman!! 🙂 I can’t wait!!

That’s the Malcolm I remember.

Yayyy. Can’t wait!

Maybe he comes to town and knows a secret about Hilary who is pregnant with either Neils or Devons child…that she was married before to a much older man and took him for every cent…Malcolm himself!!! Ok, not true…lol

Please not another who’s the daddy drama! We already have this with Victoria & company! Just thought of something; Neil is constantly betrayed by the men in his family. Malcolm slept with Drucilla, when she thought he was Neil, while high on cold medicine and Devon slept with Tyra, another woman Neil was seeing and now he is lusting after Hilary. Give this poor guy a break! It will be good to see Shemar on Y&R again.

Trust me if she ever laid down with this guy she would not even look twice at Neil & Devon. This man is fine!!! This man leaves you breathless he has a boyish charm & a sexual air about him! Ok I am done! lol Fantasy time over & out!!!

Wow! This is the biggest return/casting news this year. Can’t wait . Even if it’s two short days.

JFP must be desperate for viewers! However I can not wait for Shemar to return, even if for only two episodes.

I agree, seems like a ratings ploy but I do look forward to seeing him.

Anything ANY soap does is for ratings. What the heck?

Well this is one cross promotion I don’t mind—at least he was connected to the show– and it will be nice to see original Malcolm again, even for two days. Finally something connected to the Winters family to look forward to.

Mary my sister still watches every day and she tells me that they r hinting at a Mariah/Nick hook up? Please tell me that she is wrong I will never return to watching this show on a full time basis again if they do that. The fact JM would not scream to the producers that actress grew up on that show as his child Disgusting!!! There has to be a line you do not cross please tell me she is off base.

Yes it is true– sort of– we definitely see Mariah developing a thing for Nick, it could just be a crush or she might be getting the hots for him. Right now Nick is oblivious and whether or not the writers would write him returning her feelings is a long ways off I think.

One would hope the writers would not go there by having Nick interested in someone who looks like his daughter– although Cassie was his adopted daughter not biological, the eck factor and the borderline incest should be enough for them not to have Nick go there or ask JM to go there as an actor with an actress he knew as a child. So fingers crossed this is a one way infatuation that will fade and that Mariah will eventually end up with Kevin

W-H-A-T?!?!? Mary…say it ain’t so!!!!! It’s one thing for that Mariah chick to look up to that dirtbag Ian as a father figure (or whatever). But…a possible Nick/Mariah pairing?!?!? H-E-L-L N-O!!!!! That is all kinds of C-R-E-E-P-Y!!!!! What is Y&R thinking here?!?!? B-L-E-C-H!!!!! As for Mariah ‘ending up’ with Kevin (or whatever)…I d-o-n-‘t t-h-i-n-k s-o. No. Kevin has gotten WAY TOO DORKY AND WAY TOO STUPID ever since Chloe left. If Y&R wants to put Mariah with someone…why not…say…Carmine??? I mean…Mariah is something of the town pariah and Carmine burned A LOT of bridges (or whatever) when he WENT ALL PSYCHO and kidnapped Lauren and held her hostage. Bottom Line Here: I think that Y&R should bring Carmine back, put him with Mariah and call it a (storyline) day. Period.

Oh great, someone else connected to the Winters family who SUCKS! Thank god its only two days!

Wow!! Good of him to pay homage to his beginnings. Wasn’t watching during his run but interested in seeing him in this role and the family dynamics.

Really don’t need any connection to the HilAnn character; enough of the faux connections and historical rewrites.

Holy toledo , this is must see tv , I can’t wait

Oh Baby girl say it is so!!! I love that man I truly do when he started the soap he was as green as they get and he came a long way he truly did! The best eye candy ever on daytime!!! The Keesha storyline he finally proved he could act with the big boys!

He needs to make sure he brings Drucilla back with him!!! She’ll wipe the floor with Hillary!! And hopefully, Olivia will make an appearance as well!!!!!!

First GT and now SM!!! JFP is making some smart casting moves. I almost look forward to nuAdam.


Victoria Rowell’s ceaseless rants all over social media will sadly make sure we never see the day of Drucilla’s return which bad writing or not I would have returned to this show. After the debacle of that Cosby kid or whoever it was..was it the Family Matters kid…as Malcom..a two day ratings boost stunt will NOT peak my interest to return to this hot mess.

Wow great news, I love Shemar Moore he is very sexy and a wonderful actor. I love Shemar on Criminal minds. Now bring back Leanna Love, I miss Barbara Crampton so much.

Be still my heart!!

Only if he comes back and announces that he’s dying from cancer. Then I’ll watch. Otherwise, pointless.

I won 10$ ..!!!
I Bet my friend that Y&R/JFP would copy GH and start to bering old vets back..
she fears GH on her heels and she has always been a copycat to get ratings when she can’t come up with something of her own she copies what works ahha..

It will be fun to see him on Y&R, again ..

Actually YR has brought back vets for years.

MAB did it ALL the time. Josh G continued it, and it’s never stopped since Ashley and Traci make appearance quite often.

GH won’t be catching YR in total viewers any time soon. Especially with Ron over at GH.

PatF is right. To accuse Y&R of copying GH on this point is way off base. Nina, Brock, Christine, Ashley and Traci (as PatF said), even John (as a ghost) … Y&R has always been good about bringing vets back for short appearances or story arcs.

ITA– all soaps bring back former characters at some point–either to promote the show, to boost ratings, or if story dictates it– there is nothing new here and no one is copying any one since they all do it. A few years ago Days when it was in slump had a bunch of vets return; by bringing characters such Carrie, Austin and Billie and more recently they had Shane and Kim on for a bit— they too were trying to lure in more viewers with vets– which is the point– they want people watching nothing sinister or desperate about it, just soaps being soaps.

Can’t wait, love Shemar!

bring back olivia as well. just because victoria rowell burned her bridges, aunt liv should still come back to consoul lily and neil. maybe a triangle with neil, and liv and leslies husband if they both work at the hospital? neil needs to roll with people his own age.
speaking of malcolm, whrs tyler! ?! shemar needed lots of acting help when he first hit genoa city but had so much potential!! rederick is the next shemar, pls dont let tyler go!!!!

I love him! He’s great on Criminal Minds! I only watched a few episodes of Y&R when it first started, so never saw him on the soap, but I knew he had come from a soap.

Then there’s that other gal on CSI? who was from All My Children. It’s great that soap stars can move on up, but I always look at them and think “hey, he’s from ….” Like Tommy Lee Jones for example, no matter how many movies I see him in, I always think “I remember when he was on One Life to Live as a doctor who hung out with Dorian Lord!”

Great news. Y&R needs all the love it can get right now. The Winters clan especially. Used to love them, now they’re FF material to me. I’ll watch for this vet’s return.

Shemar Moore and Kristoff St.John are gold together. The show failed miserably when they recast Malcolm with Darius McCrary, he did not fit the role at all, nor did he look like Neil’s YOUNGER brother. I would love to see SM play Malcolm every now and then (Like how Beth Maitland pops up every few months or so), after all he does work on another CBS show.

And he would do it to contrary to what everyone thinks the man does know Y&R gave him his start. I have never seen him nothing but gracious and kind to the daytime community.

Looking forward to his two day visit. I watch him on Criminal Minds.

It’s about time. I love watching him and I love him on criminal mind. What about Neal wife that died? Will she be coming back , we need some of the old crew back, except take Christine off,more she need to put on some pounds, she look older then Paul .

This thread is to notify all of you y&r fans!!

Your show is carbon copying GH…
I have been a longtime viewer….

I am seeing countless storylines depicted.!!!!!

I don’t see any originality since JFP boarded either!!!

Kim Zimmer Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Last night the stars of daytime came together for a one-of-a-kind three hour-plus virtual event Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit For Stand Up To Cancer – We All Have a Story.

Towards the top of the show Daytime Stands Up co-hosts Michael Fairman and Alan Locher welcomed former Guiding Light stars, Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva) and Tina Sloan (ex-Lillian).

During their segment both actresses initially discussed playing breast cancer storylines for their character on the beloved soap opera and the impact it made on them and the viewers at the time. However, later in the conversation, Kim made a heartfelt admission that she is currently battling breast cancer in real life.


Kim expressed, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 6th. And if it wasn’t for a wonderful circle of friends that I have, and not to mention my husband AC Weary, and my family Rachel Max and Jake, who call me every day, I would’ve fallen apart. But because of my circle that I had, including fabulous doctors, early detection (was possible).

“I did have a mastectomy and I have my last infusion on Tuesday,” Zimmer added. “I would say to anyone that may get a diagnosis like I got. It’s so important that you find a support system.”

On how she is coping with her battle, Kim shared, “I’m a tough broad. But again, if I didn’t have the friends that I have, the support system that I have, the fabulous doctors, a fantastic plastic surgeon, I would’ve fallen apart. And I’m here to say early detection. Early detection. Early detection. Get your mammograms, get them soon.”

Earlier in the segment, when Kim talked about Reva’s breast cancer battle and how her character would not tell the love her life, Josh Lewis (Robert Newman), which maddened fans of the GL. Kim related, “The fans were like, ‘Why are you not telling Josh?” It made for great drama, though, It bonded Billy and Reva again in life.  We brought in the wonderful character of Colin, who was Reva’s by the book, cancer Doctor.”

“There were a lot of wonderful things that came out of the storyline,” recalled the four-time Daytime Emmy-winner. “I actually went back and watched the (standalone show) that they did on Reva finding out she had breast cancer. And I was like, ‘Wow. I can’t imagine not fighting that story today. But it ended up being written beautifully.”

Now Ashley is not herself.  She at times is either Ash, Ms. Abbott or the flamboyant Belle. Although her friend and psychiatrist from Paris, Alan Laurent (Christopher Cousins) has come to Genoa City at the urging of the Abbott family, he has been taking his time assessing Ashley and her behavior.

Looks like Ashley’s alter may be hell-bent on murdering Tucker during her mental anguish as the storyline takes even more twists and turns in upcoming episodes ahead.

Patrick Mulcahey OUT as General Hospital Co-Head Writer

After various reports surfaced, it has been confirmed that Patrick Mulcahey is out as the co-head writer of General Hospital. This is after a very short tenure of under five months.

Mulcahey was named to the position back in January of 2024 along with longtime GH writer Elizabeth Korte. They replaced the team of Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor, who had been the head scribes of the long-running ABC daytime drama since 2019.

A source informed Soap Opera Digest that stories created by the co-head writing team of  Mulcahey/Korte team will air through mid-summer. However they added “There will be more news to share at a later date as to the composition of the new writing team.”

In addition, eagle-eyed soap fans have seen that in recent episodes former co-head writer, Chris Van Etten has been credited, as he is reportedly a breakdown writer with the show.

Soap Opera Network is reporting that Korte has assumed the head writing duties solely on her own at the moment, while Buzz blog initially reported Mulcahey’s exit.
