Should Y&R Try To Nab Trevor St. John As The Recast Adam Newman?

As this week comes to a close, it surely was one of the saddest for soap fans of The Young and the Restless!  In one of the biggest shockers of the year, the extraordinarily talented and popular, Michael Muhney was let-go at the number one soap after four years of his memorable work as Adam Newman, one of the most complex characters on daytime that Muhney helped shape and define through various writing regime changes at Y&R!

There is no question that Muhney left his imprint on the role and raised the bar for any actor who would follow in his footsteps in the role of Adam.  That being said, in Muhney’s exit interview with Huff Post Canada TV, he revealed what we had heard, that the show ultimately plans to recast the role.  Muhney was told they wanted to give the role of Adam a rest for 3 to 6 months.  Will the CBS soap do that?  Or, will they recast sooner than that?  Right now, fans of the long-running daytime drama hope that somehow CBS and Sony will see the pushback they have gotten over their decision and reconsider and rehire Muhney!

And while it is heartbreaking to think of anyone else in the role, we tried to envision who else could step into a role so dark and riveting as Adam Newman.  And only one name stood out to us … that of Trevor St. John, the former Victor Lord Jr. of One Life to Live!  Now the questions are, would Y&R even approach Trevor?  If they did, would Trevor consider doing a major soap role in this juncture in his career?  St.  John’s acting sensibilities would seem to suit a role like this … the black sheep of the Newman clan.

In fact, we did some digging and found a video from a fan on YouTube which shows the commonality of the characters of Victor Lord Jr. and Adam Newman as played by St. John and Muhney with clips to the song, Three Days of Grace by Riot.

Watch the video below! Then, let us know if you think Trevor St. John could be a good fit for the role of Adam Newman if Y&R moves forward with recasting the role!

Oh… this is too fresh… and still cuts… to the quick

altho… MF.. Thank you… it’s necessary to move

————–

I would love the idea of Trevor St. john… preferably on DAYS of OUR Lives… as Peter Blake.. and/or Jack Devereax….

Trevor St. John… is perfect… would be….

if this is thee case…. anything to bring back… Sharon from the dead

Nope besides JFP has already picked her FOJ for this role! I am disgusted that you think we can just go along like little sheep to the slaughter I and a hell of a lot of other people are not going to take this bullshit soap columnists trying to taint MM because he did not file in to to your bullshit sickens me just keep on with your slander and let’s see what the lawyers say! I am a TSJ fan but this is not over by a long shot your trying to accuse MM of unspeakable acts so you can cover JFP makes me sick.

This is more than likely true. I can see it being Timothy Gibbs or Rick Hearst.

Besides, Trevor St. John, at 41 is too old. Adam Newman was born in 1995 and that would make him 18. The oldest he should be would be around 25 or 26.

Kay, always love your comments and agree with them as I do with this one. But I just have to defend Fairman because he has not utlilized smear like smear like tactics to discredit Michael. Fairman really lives up the first syllable of his name as he is always fair. I think you’re thinking of the other Michael, as in Michael Slogan.
Joshua, while I don’t feel Adam should be recast at all, age isn’t really an obstacle for TSJ. Michael is 38, Trevor is 41 and Amelia (Victoria) is 41 or 42. He is in the ball park as far as age is concerned and Y&R has been notorious for not paying fedelity to chronological age.
Again, I vote for no recast at all, but if push came to show, Roger Howarth is the only actor who is remotely capable of challenging this very complex and dark role.

AFTER WATCHING THE Video there no doubt that he would be perfect for the role . I WOULD LOVE TO SEE IT HE IS ONLY 4TH OLDER THAN Micheal

He’d be a perfect Peter Blake…better than Mike M. would be now that the subject came up…i can see him do battle against E.J. much like his Victor verses Todd on OLTL…Days needs him now!!!

Patrick I wanted to say in my remarks I was not attacking you. It might have came off that way and sorry I am just really tired of all this in my opinion libel garbage being thrown out there over MM. So I am going to take the advice that I gave some of the actors and soap columnists and shut up about it. We will never know the true story and I for one do not care anymore. Just hate how it went down and all the back biting and finger pointing. Personally CBS & Sony should have put a gag order on these people as far as I am concerned. I wish now that MM would have not said a word. Best to you !

@k/kay.

I figured as much. no worries.

this news is still staggering….

vets are one thing… but a truly gifted actor… fired…. ?

thank you for telling us about Sharon Case’ heartfelt, beautiful, Tribute… to Michael Muhney….

I simply went to YouTube… and found it….

Man! all I know for certain… is how magnetic this pair… truly was!

there are such a select few to cull from… that defy explanation

Sharon and Adam.. had quality… in spades

this is more than a trying time… to like Y&R…

I apologize I did not mean to imply Mr. Fairman he is always a gentleman I was referring to the other one with TV Guide he has really been throwing matches on the fire. Plus a few others plus three actors take your pick can’t we just let the man go in peace? I think I will just quit watching the true colors of these people on the set are coming out and it is leaving a bad taste in my mouth. Maybe I should start watching Days for my fix! Now to get in the Christmas spirit I will leave on a positive note. Happy Holidays Soap Fans and Mr. Fairman our host!!!

Donald

I have no idea who any of these people are. Except TSJ. Did anyone see him on the Client List? No. As for GH YR BB DOOL, I really don’t give a ****. (Darn) ;-o I have tried to watch each of these and they make me want to shove a pencil in my eye. (Not really, but they are really awful.) I want OLTL back, but it think it’s time to smell the **** and put it out of our misery and re-place the RIP next to it’s name. it’s not coming back. And AMC, too. 😉

To be honest I DON’T GIVE A RATS ASS what he did.. He makes the show! He brings in the ratings! He’s the man! And without the shining star there is no show. I say let the fans decide! He gave life to Adam Newman and he is too big to be replaced! It’s we the fans that give it its rating to survive.. So lets stand together and get our man back.. TO YOU MICHAEL MUNHNEY THE ONE AND ONLY ADAM NEWMAN

Trevor would be an amazing addition to the show. 20 of my family members agree. Bring it on..

I totally believe and have said from the beginning that Trevor St. John would be the best fit. Everyone doubted his abilities when he was recast on OLTL, and he was amazing.

It won’t matter because I won’t be watching Y&R at all after January 30. I’m done!

Marion Lee

Me too….I don’t think it’s fair to MM for the fans to be left ‘guessing’ what happened. It smears his name even more, with all the innuendos and finger pointing i.e. Melody Thomas Scott…the fact that her husband is one of the Producers of the show should have been all the more reason why she should have kept her mouth firmly shut. I sincerely hope MM has a string of good Lawyers. I’m done with Y&R after 26 years.

Her husband is not a producer of Y&R. He is the producer of BB

No clue who he is as all I’ve watched is YR. Whether it’s this guy or someone else I’m sure he’ll do a fine job at roll. It’s not like a character has never been recast before on a show.

Go on utube and look up OLTL when he played Victor Lord JR…you’ll see what a great actor Trevor is…any soap would be lucky to have him!!!

I would love a Sharon and Adam reunion. never liked Chelsea so for me I wasn’t even watching Adam these days with this horrific story of killing a child and Adam with chelsea no way. Adam loved Sharon not Xhelsea. That was a mistake to have him have a baby with Chelsea.

louisa

LOVE LOVE LOVE Trevor St. John…but let’s keep him on ABC! If we can’t have him on OLTL let’s get him on GH.

Harry

Two problems with that idea; 1. GH is already way too bloated with cast and 2. GH doesn’t seem to know what to do with thhe OLTL 3 they already have. They’d probably make Trevor Franco’s crazier brother or something idiotic like that.

I’ve watched Y&R for over 25 years faithfully. Have seen favourite actors leave and be recast. I don’t recall feeling the true sorrow I’ve felt this week with Michael Muhney’s firing. In fact, all I’ve done is tape the show since hearing the news, haven’t had the heart to watch Adam knowing the weeks ahead will end with the final scenes on Jan. 30th. So, to replace the character is a problem given the fan’s outrage at the firing.
I believe very soon the Phyllis replacement will have to occur and along with that the Billy Abbott replacement too. A lot to ask that within probably a month or two later, a replacement for one of the most loved (and hated) characters in Adam, who Michael Muhney created with such expertise.
I cannot even consider a replacement actor, not to insult Trevor St John, as talented as he is.

Patrick

“…I don’t recall feeling the true sorrow I’ve felt this week with Michael Muhney’s firing.”

I couldn’t have said it better…. MY exact sentiments

this cuts to the core… like anything… that’s happened… in the soap world this year

————–

my gut instinct…. I feel this way… because… I feel like this is the last of Y&R… to elevate Genoa City

like the industry that Y&R is… is suffering… and I don’t even know how to put it out of it’s misery

———–

this isn’t making light of the predicament… that Michel Muhneys traverse in life entails…

God! I want the best for him

Harry
Harry

Lovely. I am afraid I agree with you. I was only holding onto Y&R due to MM, and will not tune in just to watch DuhYawn, Summer (Her lease has too long a date) Abby, Lily of the Valley Girl and the Baldwin redundantly boring family crisis.

Marion Lee

Amen to that Harry…I wish MM the greatest success in his future. I will follow him, wherever he should go in the future.

She would look more like her sister Avery that is for sure. But Michelle Stafford has been Phyllis for 16 yrs. That is a hard pill to swallow. So is having Adam/ Michael Muhney and Billy /Billy Miller being replaced :'( WE LOVE THESE PEOPLE PLAYING THESE CHARACTERS. REALLY SHOULD BE A LITTLE MORE FLEXIBLE AND NOT BELIEVE EVERYTHING PEOPLE SAY. INNOCENT UNTIL “PROVEN” GUILTY. At least that is ALWAYS what I thought the saying was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Goodbye Y & R you HAD a good run.

Well said. I have watched this show since its inception in the summer of 1973. I am heartbroken. I haven’t felt this way about an actor no longer playing a role since Brenda Dickson left the show or when David Hasselhoff took over for William Gray Espy. I do not like that Sharon and Nick are moving back towards each other, I do not like the secret Sharon keeps and I especially do not like the man that Victor continues to be. I miss Katherine immensely. I need a Phyllis fix. I will be doubly heartbroken when Billy Miller leaves. It may be my time to leave the show now too.

Bjomb

I agree plz leave Michael Muhney in the role as Adam he has done such a great job…Hate to see Billy being replaces also… To many changes causes disinterest.

TSJ, is the only person I could even think of to play Adam. But, lets face it, Y&R has a LOT to fix. I truly think that Y&R thought bringing on Steve Burton would fix everything. They created this boring character & awful storyline JUST for Steve, & ended up writing out MM, as Adam. They have made almost every character on that show a mess. They tell the same stories over & over. At this point do the fans even care about Victor & Nikki?

Peggy

I really like Trevor St. John. He is a great actor, however, if he is approached by these hacks and offered the role of Adam Newman I hope he is smart enough to turn them down. What good decent actor would want to become a part of all of this nonsense? As soon as Michael Muhney’s last scenes air I plan to drop this show anyway.

Mbest
Mbest

If we can’t get MM his job back and the role is to be recast then yes TSJ would be ideal.
He has the look, the mannerisms, and he is a heavy hitter and could slip right in to this role.
IF not TSJ then I don’t think any other recast could pull it off. JMO

MBmomof3

Totally agree. If MM can’t be brought back, then TSJ would be PERFECT in the role of Adam Newman. can’t see anyone else who would could pull it off.

Kaleesi

He was the first guy I thought of that would be an acceptable recast but is he an FOJ? My guess is the soap killer will cast the likes of Brandon Barash and if so, I definitely won’t be watching.

Mr Fairman, it’s way too soon to be making these kind of posts. The blood is still fresh.

Mary SF

The body isn’t cold yet, figuratively speaking, and you are talking who should replace him– it’s Christmas, lets not deal with this stuff until the holidays are over– the topic is depressing enough– but bets are if this guy isn’t a FOJ I doubt he has a shot, no matter how good he is.

Holly

I’ve often said that TSJ and MM favored each other, only TSJ is blonde. And, Victor Lord, Jr. on OLTL and Victor Newman, Jr. (Adam) on Y&R have similar personalities. As a fan of both shows, both characters, and both actors, I often have said that I could see them playing each other’s roles. That’s a good thought.

lulu

It’s still too fresh to think about it..imo..although Trevor St John was a choice i thought about..he looks like MM and his acting is somewhat similar..but he is too old to play Adam..me thinks..

Misty

Michael Muhney defined Adam Newman on Y&R. The best thing they should do is either kill the character off in an ambiguous way that could open the door of an eventual return. Hopefully, TPTB will bring Muhney back after a time out and every one has chilled out. Y&R is damaged goods from this whole debacle. The brand has suffered in a negative way that I have never seen. There has to be a way for Sony & CBS to understand that the unprecedented genuine outpouring of support for Muhney from the fans must be considered too important to ignore. A recast now would only provoke the audience.

JUDY

NO REPLACEMENTS FOR ME…YOU CANNOT REPLACE BILLY AND ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!! AFTER WATCHING FROM THE BEGINNING IT IS TIME TO TUNE OUT Y&R…..

Phyllis Scott

When I spoke to Michael Muhney on the phone in 2012 I told him I was attracted to his acting because I saw a similarity in styles and looks with that of Trevor St John who I absolutely adore and am a member of his fan club. I attended a fan appreciation gathering for TSJ in 2011 and one of the questions that was asked him: would he consider another soap? His answer was positive. But I’m torn. To me, Adam IS Michael Muhney. No other. And the manner in which MM was ousted would not set well with TSJ who is a very principled actor who stands up for other actors, especially when they are fired for no apparent reason. But could TSJ take on the role of Adam Newman and make it his–absolutely!

I am so frustrated because I want to know the exact reason Michael was fired. What did he say or do that was so terrible that they would fire such a talented and loved actor? Also, is there any possibility that they would rehire him because so many fans have threatened to stop watching? Has that ever happened before in the history of soap operas?

Serena Elizabeth

Both men are so similar & I love both actors. However if TSJ came to Y&R I would be so back in a heartbeat. He should have won a Emmy for the execution scenes.

Trevor would be PERFECT !!! I love him!!! But I really want him back on OLTL & am hoping the powers that be will get that show back into production! AMC too! Even tho Trevor would fit seamlessly into the role of Adam, it just isn’t fair that he was axed in the first place! Michael Muhney fit the role of Adam like a glove!!!
But who knows, maybe GH will grab him as a recast of Jason! All these firings, breakdown of negotiations, shop hopping, jeez! Soap fans are loyal & are watching! Love Michael, Love Trevor & Love Steve!!!

Trevor St. John didn’t want to go on with OLTL..
There is no OLTL

(there never will be a OLTL, it gone, forever..

Shawna

I am a HUGE Trevor fan and how he never won an Emmy is a huge travesty but that being said, I don’t see him wanting to take on a role so similar to the one he has already played on OLTL. Also, I think he is a little too old for the role and for a pairing with Melissa Claire Egan not that they would have to reunite them. It’s just something that would be considered for sure.

I love Michael Muhney and I want to see him stay on Y&R in the role of Adam however with all the drama and rumors surrounding his exit, I find a rehire probably not in the works for him despite the fan outrage. I hate rumors because you never know how much of any of it is true. However, I do find the fact that CBS, Y&R and Sony have not issued a statement or made an announcement incredibly strange.

All I know is that Muhney has created Adam to be the equivalent to the female, Carly on GH…it takes a talented Powerhouse of an Actor to pull off a role as complex as Adam Newman so Good Luck to Y&R on their search…I think they will need 3-6 months just to find someone ~

Harry

Well said, Shawna. I think it would be a mistake to recast the role of Adam too. Why? Because time and time again the writers have painted him into a irredeemable corner. I never thought I would even want to look at that man again after he crossed dressed as Victor’s dead wife and scared Ashley into having a miscarriage. Then he seduces sweet vulnerable Raul as a means to an end, not to mention Heather Williams. I think he was even mean to Victor’s dog. How does a character recover from that? I’l tell you how, through the superb acting prowess that is Michael Muhney. I wanted to detest this man, but something flickered in those eyes of his–as if if you could see the conflict, the vulnerability and the wrestling match between self interest and conscience through those eyes. Adam should have been a one dimensional villain, but Michael took it to a whole new level making fans care about this character. He showed, without telling. This did not come from the writers, but the actor himself. Trevor St. John is a really good actor, but this cannot be replicated and therefore, they should not even try to recast this role.

Heather Cole

So true! He made me love Adam, as much as I tried to hate him for all the things he did. You always seen in his eyes the wanting to be loved by his father (Victor). Michael Muhney IS Adam!

If the idiots in charge had any sense they would bend over backwards to get Muhney back. I’m not interested in watching anyone else as Adam or watching a Muhney-less Y&R. I’m out once his run is up.

Victor Newman Jr. is supposed to be older than Abby but younger than Nick & Victoria. TSJ is older than both of them and looks it. Don’t get me wrong, I know he could play the hell out of it but he would look older than his character should.

Anne Jordan
Anne Jordan

I could not care less which FOJ comes on as Adam. I am done NOW. The firing of MM and the loss of Billy Miller is insurmountable. The loss of Phyllis and the death of Katherine were huge, then the awful killing of of Delia, plus icky Victor and snoozy Dylan, Cane and Lily—- it is just too much. I just can’t stand it anymore. JFP is a disaster!!!

Trevor St. John would be great but–
He quit soaps for bigger and better things..
He’s been in movies and has moved on..
Also.. Trevor St. John would want the contract that wouldn’t give Billy, freedom to do other projects..
Trevor St. John, would not get into a binding contract that would prevent him from doing other things,,

They are not going to hire back Michael, something obviously has happened to warrant a firing, and nobody can talk about it. If it was for anything else they would have said why, and I don’t buy his reasoning, because he is outspoken, if that was true, Eric Braeden would have been fired a long time aggo..

As a MAJOR Adam/Michael Muhney fan he was the first person who came to mind – once the shock wore off.

The only parts of OLTL I ever watched had him and Renee Goldsberry in it. And I’ve liked/loved him ever since. He reminds me of a mixture between Adam Newman and EJ Dimera- which is just all sorts of sexy.

And now you are replacing ADAM….are you crazy. You are changing the best actors on the show. You’ve kept Nikki all these years and she is a terrible actress. She walks like she is so uncomfortable and if she cries another time, I think I will scream. And back to ADAM, he is a terrific actor. You are KILLING the show.

Whenever Nikki starts up with the waterworks all over again, I usually put her on mute (via remote control) until she stops crying. LOL!!!!! And, all Nikki does anyway is (1) cry and (2) over-analyze things 24/7. Blah Blah Blah Blah and Wah Wah Wah. Beyond lame.

I am just devastated over the firing of my favorite Daytime TV start Michael Muhney. It is unbelievable what has happened to this gorgeous, talented man. No one can replace him. No one can replace Billy Miller. No one can replace Michelle Stafford. What is wrong with all the Y&R fans? I have watched this show since day one when it first came on. March 23, 1973. I will no longer watch it after January 30, 2014. That is the last air date of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. Well, everyone knew when the Soap Killer, Jill Farren Phelps got her hands on our beloved Soap it would be destroyed. They were right. She sure did just that. We Michael Muhney true fans will not go easy. We are asking them to rehire Michael to the role of Adam Newman. If he is not back by January 30th thousands of people will boycott CBS Network and thousands will write to the sponsors such as Covergirl and several of the other huge sponsors. We are so upset that this man was fired one week before Christmas. Michel is a married man with three small children and the rumors circulating about his firing is just unheard of. Why does anyone want to crucify this talented actor just trying to do his job? Could several castmates be jealous of his talent? What. He did not deserve to be done the way he has been done unless he possibly killed someone. No other behavior deserves this punishment. This show is a mess. Turn it on and you will not recognize it as Y&R. Most fans feel like CBS/Sony want this show cancelled but must you do it at the expense of the most talented actors ever to grace the screens of Daytime? Here you are already talking about a replacement. You know she has one of her friends already lined up. I am so disgusted with this I do not know what to do. With Billy Miller and Michael Muhney leaving at the same time has just ruined my Christmas. It was bad enough to loose Phyllis but to loose both Billy and Adam at the same time is just unreal. I will never watch another show on the CBS Network again. I am done with it. I wish both Bill Miller and Michael Muhney the best in their future endeavors and they are both talented and will do well. We will see them both on another show or in the movies. But I will never forgive Jill Fareen Phelps, CBS/Sony Network for what they have done to our beloved Young and the Restless. It will never be #1 again with what they have left on the show. I have heard rumors they are not through cutting the cast. All you that bad mouthed Michael Muhney beware, you may be next. I would like give a shout out to Sharon Case for the beautiful video she did of her and Michael. She is a… Read more »

I can’t fathom how they are going to get along… without… Adam, Billy, Phyllis, Ashley,

these are incredible actors

letting go of the last bridge that connected incredible Y&R, to nothing… is simply not good

Please. Get a grip. The world isn’t going to end over this. I think Michael Muhney must be posting a lot of these himself. There are specific rumors out there as to why he was fired. It’s not something that people would just make up and lie about. Michael Muhney isn’t denying those specific rumors which says something. All he’s saying is don’t believe anything you hear. He’s never going to admit to why he was really fired. Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford left by their own decision. That video Sharon Case made was cheesy and so inappropriate especially if MM is guilty of what he’s been accused of.

Y&R is on down fall from terrible stories and has become overwhelming boring..
Losing Phyllis, Billy, Adam, leaves it empty..

sorry to say; I find nothing interesting or exciting with Y&R..
It is near a chore to watch it, but I watch from habit and I FF through most of it with the exception of Billy and Adam…
Now there is nothing left that is worth my time to FF and yawn..

My first thought was any soap should hire TSJ for any role – if they can, that is. Then I watched the above video and: wow, it looks like he’d be great! This from someone who rarely watches Y&R, so I’m not attached to any specific actor portraying any character.

All we fans are focused on right now is getting Michael Muhney rehired on Y&R. Don’t give up hope yet. Join the thousands of fans that are signing the petitions on Facebook & Twitter.

I agree! I want Michael back, not replaced! I just dont know if CBS would do that. And it’s driving me nuts not knowing exactly why he was fired. So if anyone has any information as to why Michael Muhney was fired can you tell me?

Trevor St John would be the ideal Adam recast. Like everyone says, he has a similar look and mannerism. He’s a heavy hitter with the star power and fan base to hit the ground running. With the loss of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller, Y&R is lacking in Leading Men. Right now it’s just Josh Morrow and Steve Burton. They need another STAR to fill the void and Trevor St John certainly fits the bill.

People are upset about losing Muhney so JFP needs to give us fans somebody stellar like Trevor St John to make up for it. We need a brand name actor who can deliver the goods right away!

They need to make such a splash for sure. Is Josh Morrow a leading man anymore? He used to be much better but he is far to complacent now. Muhney and Miller were the powerhouse leads the show needed. Morrow and Burton? I cringe.

After reading these posts me thinks Y&R should do an end of the world storyline that affects only Genoa City…lol

w/Victor hanging on the cross

love to read posts: it’s still shock

and, now, it’s still angry!

just blankety, blankety, blank! blank! blank!

how could they do this?

it’s misery to go where Y&R is headed…. the dump

Me thinks Victor should go a business trip to England…on his way home he gets aboard Titanic 2 and as history would repeat itself the ship hits an iceberg and there is no lifeboats for the men!

I am a huge TSJ fan… but I am also a huge MM fan!!! I am still reeling over MM being out… he is a huge part of Y&R for me!!! However if it would be a choice between any one else… then yes… Trevor would be perfect!!!

I want both actors to have work and would like to see more of both!

I think Y&R has made such a big big mistake in letting go Muhuny. I’m 90% not watching. St. John would be a good replacement. But I like the original Adam. PLEASE PLEASE KEEP HIM!! and I absolutely hate Steve Burton on here. I flip the chanel when he’s on. Want him bk 2 gh. But since y&r was so yet again stupid to let Billy go. I’d like to see him play Jason on gh. And knock y&r ratings down for letting go such great actors..

I am surprised we have not heard JFP speak out.. she is a loud mouth who likes likes to say I didn’t make these decision it came from higher up.. Remember she is the one that says that she didn’t “Kill” Frankie Frame (AW). This has her handwriting written all over the place. Sony Make her be gone as quick as possible before she completely ruins Y & R.

Had MM left the show in a different manner and the role were being recast, I would agree that TSJ could handle the role without it appearing to jarring a change. But, first…it is too soon. And second,,,,frankly ANY actor to sign on to Y&R at this point had better not be looking at it as a long term gig. Be it Sony/JFP or CBS…someone is out to kill this show.

That isn’t directly related to the firing of MM but because currently the storylines are terrible, the influx of new characters while shoving veteran ones aside (could Neil have a more boring story…oh, wait…does he even have one now??) and the loss of so many talented actors is sinking the show.

An example: Esther may not be a major character like Nikki or Jill…but the way they handled her in the Delia story was a travesty. It was truly treating her like the hired help vs the girl’s grandmother. It is typical of the way legacy characters are shunted aside to showcase someone else.

Honestly, I am shocked they didn’t try to somehow drag in a big scene involving Dylan since he was obviously brought on to become THE star of the show. Sorry, do not see that happening.

I guess unless I find there have been major changes down the road Y&R will be off my dvr list come January 30th. Leaving only Days. How sad.

Media critics, outside of the soap focused media, have taken notice of the firing of Michael Muhney. The impact on the internet has been unprecedented for this genre of television. What does that say about an actor that has that kind of fan support? I’d say he’s damn good. I’d also say that the showrunners should re-examine their own actions. Even if he’s guilty of all these unsupported rumors, his departure was on overreaction on their part. All of that said, to bring up this topic is way too early. If Muhney is rehired, then the role should lay dormant for an extended period of time. This is a deep wound for the show and a quick recast is only salt in that wound.

When I started watching Y&R again after years of not watching, I commented on how much Michael Muhney reminds me of Trevor St John. Trevor would be the best recast, however, Michael should be rehired! I mostly I fast forward to scenes with Adam in them because I just love him and he is the best actor on the show! This was not fair and a dumb ass move. God, I hate JFP! And let go of SB so he can come back to his role on GH! Dillon is a bore!

Nobody can take MM”s place, no recast, some people say sharon Case next to go, please don’t let that happen. Y&R has a lot of nu-people who can’t act that need to go, most don’t even have a story line, just words on a page, complete waste of air time, what the heck is wrong with the writers, oh I know they cant write!! Y&R needs to fire all at the top and start over again. Maybe the last 6 yrs has been a dream and none of this shit happened??

JFP doesn’t seem to care for Sharon as she started making her the psycho villain while bringing up Phyllis as a saintly, albeit spirited, hero.
And look what she did to poor Genie Frances on her last days–she had everyone kicking her while she was down. I think even Victor’s puppy kicked her.

TSJ is a wonderful actor and can certainly handle the role of Adam, but why? MM was wonderful in this role. He has made the character one of the most complex on tv. You would have to be a total idiot not to realize what an impact this will have on Y&R. The past year has been unbearable with the stupid storylines and some of the most boring characters (Lily, Cane, Nicki, Avery, and last but certainly not least Dylan). I never realized what a one dimensional actor Steve Burton was until now. I stopped watching the day after I heard about MM. I can not bear to see him leave.

I only watched YR off and on but , yes Trevor would make a good adam since OLTL is done why not use OLTL ‘s Talent it’s ABC / PP loss and could be DOOL and BB, GH and YR s gain . OLTL had a wealth of talent RW , JVD , RS & ES HELLO SOMEBODY HIRE these ACTORS

I am one of the biggest Trevor St. John fans there is, but I do not believe he is right for Adam. Firstly, as you stated Michael, Adam and Victor are SO much alike and I doubt Trevor would want to play a different version of the same character.

I cannot believe we are even contemplating recasts AT ALL, let alone so soon. Michael Muhney was one of those rare talents in the soap world that cannot be matched. He came onto the screen and immediately made Adam his own. He held, and even OWNED, scenes with veterans like Eric Braeden and Peter Bergman. He made a character that seemed so irredeemable, beloved by all kinds of fans. His chemistry with both Sharon Case and Melissa Claire Egan ignited two passionate fanbases. He poured his heart and soul into every scene, no matter how stupid (He deserved better writers!). And through social media and fan events, he made fans feel like family, just how soaps are supposed to be.

I am so deeply saddened by this. Especially the week before Christmas. I have only been watching Y&R lately FOR Adam scenes, because the rest of the show has been so dull, so lifeless, so depressing, so boring. I can say for absolute certainty that January 30th will be my final day of watching this show and I will not tune back in until Jill Farren Phelps is rightfully fired and Michael Muhney is rightfully rehired. Until then, I will follow him to wherever his career takes him and with his talent, I’m sure that could be anywhere.

Michael Muhney is an actor who made the past two years of horror on Y&R bearable. He created Adam Newman on his own. He can’t be replaced. No Muhney, no Adam. This is a disaster for the fans .

Newsflash to Melody Thomas Scott: Your disgusting smears haven’t gone unnoticed by the fans of MM. You deserve a huge lump of coal in your ever expanding stockings.

I hate to see MM go but Trevor would be perfect in the role of Adam.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
