Day two of the return of Shemar Moore (Malcolm) to The Young and the Restless packed an emotional wallop … as Malcolm finally wore down his big brother enough to get him to finally admit he is scared that he may never see again!

Neil (Kristoff St. John), who has been blind since his accident, has been pushing the entire family away and his new wife, Hilary (Mishael Morgan).  The now very-wise version of Malcolm gets Neil to see what he is doing, and to let people help him, and to take a hold of what has become a handicap and turn it around, and learn what he can to help him participate in the world again, i.e. learning braille, etc!

Later, after Neil has his long overdue emotional meltdown over his blindness, the two brothers are listening to some music per the album Malcolm brought Neil as in walks Devon (Bryton James), Lily (Christel Khalil) and Hilary.   Malcolm asks Devon before he leaves if Hilary is a good woman, and Devon says, “yes”.   Of course, Malcolm has no idea that Hilary and Devon are in love.

In more emotional scenes, Malcolm says goodbye to his family, and his big brother, before heading off to his next photography assignment.  Major acting kudos go to Kristoff St. John and Shemar Moore for some hankie-filled moments making us all realize how talented, and how great it was to see them share screen together, and the bond that they share.

I liked Day 2 better than Day 1.

It was refreshing to finally see some good old fashioned character driven scenes.
I thought the scenes between these two brothers was well acted and well written.
Malcolm has grown up–the former screw up is now the wiser of the two brothers.
Well done–more please.

The actors made the most of what they were given (which was pretty thin) but all I could think about was that totally random scene at the Park Cafe — it looked like the old terrace doors from Brad’s house collided with the Chancellor Park set (and not in a good way).

Alan,

You said the following, “The actors made the most of what they were given (which was pretty thin)…..” Just to let you know, Kristoff and Shemar did not like the original scripts that they were given. Which leads us to know that both guys went to Jill Farren Phelps and asked her about redoing the scripts because they really didn’t do a very good job of really addressing the long history between the two characters of Neil and Malcolm. So, these scripts that they did shoot was a major improvement over what they originally had to work with. I will say that the show really made good use of flashbacks and mining the long history between these two characters.

These two days with Shemar Moore back as Malcolm was superb and sublime! Wow! Talk about mining the long history between these two characters and the actor’s themselves as well. Neil finally coming to terms and acknowledging FINALLY that he is scared that he will never be able to see again had me in tears. Kristoff St. John had better get an Emmy nomination next year. If not, he will have been robbed. This is a fantastic storyline for Kristoff and I can see the Academy handing him an Emmy nod next spring.

I agree with your every word, Michael. I have to admit that I never thought Mr. St. John was much of an actor but those two episodes with his brother proved me wrong.
Those scenes reminded me of what hooked many of us onto soaps in the first place.

Because of Shemar’s work in primetime and films his actor’s energy now has game and brought up all around him. Same thing with Meredith Baxter, may I add. It’s not the soap stars’ faults per se, but the recent jolt on Y & R has been exhilerating and fascinating…yep, everyone rose to the occassion.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
