More exits at The Young and the Restless and this time Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) is losing her long lost son!

Daytime favorite Stephen Nichols is reportedly out at the number one soap as Tucker McCall, and in fact, according to Soap Opera Uncensored the actor finished his final scenes today at the set of the CBS Daytime drama.  In addition, SOU has also reported that Jessica Heap is on her way out as Eden as well!

So soapers, what do you think of the departure of Stephen Nichols? Was the character of Tucker McCall not working?  Do you think the new regime should have kept him around and created new story for the character? Or, do you think this is the right decision? Weigh-in!

The new regime has gotten rid of the good actors, instead of the no-talents like Christel Khalile.

AMEN!! The new TAKE OVER GROUP SUCKS!! THEY SHOULD BE THE ONES TO GO!! THIS SOAP SHOULD BE CALLED THE VICTOR NEWMAN WAY!! I FAST FORWARD THRU ALL OF HIS CRAP!! JUST SAYING…..

Thought I was the only one who can’t stand Christal Khalil. I mentioned how I’d like to see her (& Kane) go during her contract negotiations and posters jumped all over me. I think she is lovely, but no talent as an actress. BORING! Y&R needs to ship off Lilly, Kane and the twins to Australia or parts unknown. Please!

Neil is great, but since Dru went over the cliff the Winters clan is FF material.

omg i couldn’t agrree more!! when Christal Khalil is on screen I fast forward as well
they are so boring…and it just surprises me on how they keep this storyline going. I call that crew the “fillers”

Ashlee
Ashlee

Actually Christel Khalil (there is no e there) is a popular, talented Emmy winner. The fact that the writers cannot find a story for her is THEIR fault, not hers. Does the fact that Cain is almost 20 years older than her just bother me?

Valerie

I agree, the age difference is just too great. Cane and Lilly are either sickening, or having problems, no middle ground.

Big mistake letting Stephen Nichols go!!!!!
They should and could have done so much more
With his character…..He is a great actor , Victor is starting to show
His age…I was in hopes of Tucker being a bigger part
Of the show..

Debbie Anderson Locke
Debbie Anderson Locke

AMEN! He could give Victor and Jack a much-needed adversary. On top of that his story with Katherine was really going places!

Kristen

Horrible decision to let Stephen Nichols go! Back to the same old Victor rules everything in the world crap, huh? YAWN.

I like SN, but the whole character of Tucker was ill conceived- I was not against Katherine having a long lost child, and when they said that child was Jill- that was an interesting twist that alter the whole Katherine/Jill relationship. But then changing that, making the child a male out for revenge was a mistake. They made Tucker so unlikable that I was rooting for Abby when she ran him down.
Then they try to make him nice, repenting his wrongs against mom, making him Devon’s deadbeat daddy- none of it worked. So I think Tucker has out lived his purpose in GC- but it is a shame they had to let go of talent like SN. If given the right role he could have done a lot for the show.
As for Eden, she is hardly on any more and has no connection to anything happening at the moment, I think it would be okay to ditch her for a while. Maybe if the show ever brings her and Micheal’s con artist father back on the show, she might be able to come back, but I think at that time they should recast because the present actress never seemed right for the role.

Stacy

They are idiots! Stephen is the finest actor in daytime (and gorgeous)! What a loss.

Stephen, come back to GH. Everyone knows Helena has been holding Stefan captive since he left for Milan! Bring back Stefan! 🙂

Sasha

NO-he’s not georgous and he is just kinda “there”…Better not get rid of ADAM though!!!

I never liked Tucker because of the mullet, they should have cut his hair to look like the 21st century!

Wow! I’m not a Y&R fan BUT, Stephen Nichols is a great talent.
IF Days could write a decent storyline, I would welcome him back with open arms!

Once again JFP makes the stupidest decisions.

Tsuds

Your funny Ces.. .we think too much alike… We both have soo much resentment against Days for their writing abilities and both keep watching!!! If your in the Washington area. .we could start up a support group to quit watching Days..

Ces
Ces

haha! I’ve noticed your comments as well 🙂 I guess I watch Days because it comes before GH on Soapnet and there isn’t anything else to watch. I suppose I could go out or read at that hour (??) I’m on the verge of giving up on this show though … it’s just not good.

Robin Fletcher

Not happy. Y&R sucks for the first time ever in 40 years. I am about to quit.

Terry Pickett

Robin, maybe if they bring on our favorite Emmy-winning Facebook friend, it would be interesting. I say CK has got to go. The reasons many dislike her, including myself, is that 1): she is talentless and 2) she is one of the reasons her TV mother, Victoria Rowell, left the show.

Yes! Couldn’t stand the character. There was just no point to him.

Maybe back to Days?

They should have kept Stephen Nichols. He’s a good actor, worth more then all the newbies put together. My advise to the entire cast of all the soaps, find real jobs, because sooner then later, they will yank all of the soaps off the air.

Avelina comes from Santorini Greece

Agreed! He is a great actor and they keep characters like Chelsea around.

Sasha

LOVE Chelsea. Why is it when someone is NICE nobody likes her?????

k/kay
k/kay

He never worked for me but it is because of the writing I knew he was gone when they had Devon go back to work for Neil. Probably Days or GH will pick him up since word is they want to build back the Cassadine fold on GH. I know he was suppose to be dead but you never really die on daytime.

Derrick

Really not surprised!!!

Judith

Neither Tucker nor Eden have been integral to Y&R for a long time now, so I have no objections to their dismissal.
I do wish that this new Producer would discontinue bringing in more and more newcomers. I also find the presence of soooo many teen-agers adding nothing of interest to the plot – their stories are shallow, save for Jamie – his back-story may contain some merit. As for Summer and Fen, why they were aged is beyond me, and why their parents don’t also age is also mystifying. Love Victor, but please have him see a barber pronto!!!!!

Chris
Chris

Along with bizarre aging, wish those who cast would consider the likelihood that the child they just cast looks even remotely like the parent. Abby related to Ashley and Victor? In what universe? I realize the pool might be small, but a little discretion adds to credibility.

Diane

Stephen Nichols was doing just fine. The problem was not him but rather the storylines that were written for him. He was always one of daytimes best actors and he is not the only one to be released from this show due to poorly written storylines. Someone better get something done in the new year or this will not remain the number one soap opera as it has been in the past.

Hilary
Hilary

They are insane. Seriously, not as an SN fan, but objectively, I think YR has blown chance after chance to truly develop Tucker beyond what SN has been able to do with him, which is quite alot. The Devon reveal was amazing work from this actor. there is so much story material that they could have given him that they just chose not to. Or that they chose to drop. Letting Eileen go was bad, but Tucker had alot of options for story without her, much as I wanted him with her. But what do they do? Let go another good actor to make room for 20yo’s and FOJs. So disappointing. YR, what do you want? What are you really looking for? Do you even know? Meh.

MBmomof3

Like Stephen Nichols, never liked the Tucker McCall character. Maybe GH or DOOL could use his talents once again. Wish him well.

LJ

Tucker was an unnecessary character….

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

He was undoubtedly expensive, as a major soap star, and it’s been said previously that TPTB are under pressure to cut costs. One would have thought that Katherine’s son would have been considered an integral part of the show, but like many characters from the Maria Bell era, Tucker was badly conceived and badly executed, and it may simply be that there was no way to repair that. I feel the same way about Nichols that I felt about the losses of Maura West, Debbi Morgan, Genie Francis, Jennifer Landon, and why-can’t-I-think-of-her-name-who-plays-Abby: what a waste. They (MAB and crew) attracted all of this top-rate talent and then they screwed things up so badly. It’s a real pity.

Bart
Bart

Good bye and good riddance, Tucker McCall – now that you are history, perhaps the new regime can rewrite Devon’s alleged parentage and ties to Katherine Chancellor???

Sorry, but this was just another half-baked Maria Arena Bell-created character that added nothing to the GC landscape and his alleged blood ties to Katherine is just stale by soap opera standards!

You will not be missed – neither will Eden – adios!!

Merry

Good-by to Tucker I wish he would of gotten his dues before he left. I also think he will end up on GH.
I wish they would put Phyless out of the front burner I don’t know how she gets the top story lines every day. I fast forward her. I am sick to death of her whinning put her in prison where she should be. ughhh or vacation who cares just less of her. Victor should get HIS company back the sooner the better it was ding bat Sharon that did this. I am happy that Avery and Nick are together. Y and R is not the number one show acording to the award show. GH is.

Oh well. Sorry to hear that. Anyone else leaving soon !

Return of Stephan on GH!? That would be very cool…Alexis needs family! (remember no one ever really dies lol)

I’m sorry to hear that because I love Stephen so much! However I really want to see him back on Days of our lives so hopefully that’ll happen !

Atalanta

Stephen is a great actor, Y&R did not give him a good storyline. We do not get GH in Australia, and I have given up on DAYS as it has been awful last few years, so BB is only other option for him as far as I am concerned

Mary

Very disappointed. Hope Days grabs him. Really not happy with a lot of the things new regime has done.

Christine

Shocker … not.

He is another one that just has not been on lately. They just stop writing for them.

The Eden character is another story. She should have been taken off the canvas a long time ago.

rebecca

Would be fun to have him back on GH!

Scott (ATWT Fan)

I’m not surprised by this exit; with Eileen Davidson gone, he really doesn’t have much of a story connection. I hope Sony can lure him officially back to DAYS!

Barb Harnedy

wonder if he’ll end up back on Days of our Lives? Kayla is still over there not dating anyone…maybe??

He needs to come back to GH! Now is the perfect time.

bring him back to gh!

Resurrecting Stephan would be quite convoluted. Cartini has enough bizarre plots going on GH. And without Constance Towers and Genie Francis, Stephan doesnt serve much purpose.

Ces

Too many characters on GH right now to give SN a good storyline.

Right decision. Cast is top heavy.

Not to mention totally boring. Good luck Stephen!

Stephen was the best part of the show. Huge mistake and missed opportunity.
One less show for me to watch.

SusyQ

I was waiting for him to leave,,,he belongs on Days of our Lives! I am crossing my fingers her returns as Steve “patch” Johnson! Yay for Steve and Kayla fans!

dg

Sony owns both Days and YR, and from what Ive heard that havent used Mary Beth Evans’s Kayla much at all. I dont think theyre interested in revisiting that pairing. Sony is much more interested in the younger demographic these days. Sad but true.

Ces
Ces

All Kayla does is pour coffee and dispense advice. DOOL couldn’t handle writing a decent storyline for them like they did before. The would fail.

Hilary
Hilary

Replying to Ces, that is not actually true. Kayla is Chief of Staff now, she has been back since December 14th in a recurring capacity, and if they didn’t want her they could have cut her loose a long time ago. There is potential there. Not sure what this team would do with it, the last run was a Hogan Sheffer-cum-Dina Higley creation. TomWhit certainly was there at the end of their second, run, so that is concerning, agreed. But just saying, they’ve broght the hospital set back, they’ve gotten her out of the Pub and into the hospital, TPTB have shown that they’re more than willing to acknowledge people over 40 (and over 50) in real storylines now, and I think there is possibility.

I hope SN comes back to Days as Steve. If YR is going to let him go — totally nuts — then hoping something works out for a Days return so they can fix Steve and Kayla.

Mary SF
Mary SF

I’m torn, like you I was a huge Patch and Kayla fan. They were one of the true super couples of the early 90’s. So a part of me would like to see them come back together and thinks if put in the right writing hands, there still can be story to be told for these two characters. So if they reintroduced the character Steve as well as they did Kristen, I would love it. But it is a bust like Carrie and Austin or Billy then I rather have my memories than see them ruin the characters.

Ashlee
Ashlee

Uh, Mary…Patch died in September 1990 and was not resurrected until spring 2006. So i am not sure how you can say they were a true super couple of the 90‘s. They appeared for 8 months in 1990.

Mary SF
Mary SF

I stand corrected- late eighties, early nineties when you become my age the decades kind of blur together.

Patrick
Patrick

Mary Beth Evans – ala’ Kayla: Lights up my screen… with Bo gone… would Days, invest in a Leading Man? Wishful thinking that Patch could return…. however, I hope that DAYS/writers would start first, with the possible Kayla/Abe relationship first…

Brian T
Brian T

Bring him back to Days as Steve because Kayla needs her man and with Bo gone they need another male lead.

MK

I would think that SN would go back to Days to join MBE and ED. Steve was the one who filled the void when Bo left in 87. He could do it again.

Jules

Fine by me. None of MAB’s characters ever clicked, and it always seemed like they never knew what to do with either. Personally, I liked William Russ from Boy Meets World in the role of Tucker.

Out with the new, bring in the old!

RJ

Would be glad to see him back on Days with Kayla.

And now the Chancellors will head the way of the Brooks family… slowly and surely written out and eventually forgotten. Losing a great talent like SN doesn’t do JC or JW any favors. JFP is going to make Y&R a showcase of her friends and favs, and the token vets who remain will eventually fade away to the occasional appearance around the holidays or funerals – because we all know no one goes to weddings anymore. With SN gone, I’m no longer interested in Y&R.

Mary SF
Mary SF

You might be right about JFP but I suspect Sony will have a say in her decisions and if the ratings drop because of her changes she will not be there for long. But as for Tucker, he was hardly a legacy character. The character has only been on the show for what two or three years? He wasn’t a vet of this show, but SN is a talented actor who got stuck with a badly written role that wasn’t well thought out to become a legacy character. But I agree losing both Phillips, Mac, Brock and others have made the Chancellors, a legacy family, woeful low on numbers on air.

Is there one person who knows for sure if he was fired or if he chose to leave??

We do not know if he was fired
or
if he decided to leave ..

dg

Michael you left out the most crucial info for this story. Did Stephen quit or was he fired? People have this tendency to jump to the conclusion that actors and fired. But many times they jump ship themselves for various reasons. It hard to give an opinion without knowing that fact.
If he quit on his own accord, well I say good luck in the future. If Sony fired him I say thats a big mistake. He’s a great actor and so far Tucker has been an interesting character.

MK
MK

JFP strikes again, she doesn’t like SN much. She killed him off on GH.

Lisa

Tucker was a waste of time. The only time I had any interest in him was at the very beginning when he was played by another actor. He was fabulous with Jill. The re-cast ruined the Tucker/Jill paring and the Katherine & Jill dynamic. The addition of Devon as Katherine’s grandson made it even worse. Maybe Tucker’s exit story will undo the mess MAB made of the Chancellors. *fingers-crossed*

toscanti
toscanti

The character of Tucker was ruined by MAB and as talented as the actor is I am ok with the decision to write him out. He would be much better back on GH or DOOL with better written characters. I am liking the new sets on Y&R and some of the new cast members. Really like Leslie and the fact she is getting story. If MAB had any idea how to write she would have been on this months ago. Abby returns in the guise of Marcy Rylan in January and this is GREAT news!!!!!! Eden is a character that has never been cast with the right actress. Perhaps when the character returns it will be with the right actress.

Mary SF
Mary SF

This has nothing to do with Tucker, but since you mentioned Abby- do you think they are planning to hook her up with the Green Energy guy that showed up a few shows ago? I could see a Big Bang Theory thing happening- the hip beautiful heiress investing in this nerdy scientist company- maybe a triangle with her and the mob guy and the nerd- what do you think?

KMB
KMB

I heard Abby was only coming back once in awhile and only on a recurring basis.

Not surprised. Tucker was a terrible character. Jessica Heap was also a waste.

Kat

SN is a gifted actor who turned a boring character into a complex one. Although at times he had little to work with in terms of script, he always brought in his “A” game and delivered a great performance every time!! There was so much unexplored territory with the Tucker character. Shame on Y&R’s new regime for failing to keep this talented actor!! Hopefully one day SN will return to the role.

Lia

I’ve never bought the story about Katherine having a long lost child. I found it difficult to believe she’d given birth to Brock as it is. However, I’ve gotten use to having Tucker around, and will miss him. Eden was never a vital character on this show, so she won’t be missed. We haven’t seen her in weeks already. Maybe now that Stephen is free, the Cassadines will be revived and he’ll go back to GH.

Iakovos
Iakovos

Nichols rocks; McCall does not. MAB never got Tucker McCall right and the potential of a vital actor/character to spar with Victor, to add dimension to Katherine, to give some definition to Devon and such… Well, it failed.

I am struck at the level of vitriol toward JFP and Josh. I am waiting to see. You cannot turn a soap around on a dime, and you have to allow for new characters and situations to allow for growth. The near incest nearly kills the show for me. I would welcome a new family and new characters. Just please give them compelling stories than link them to the legacy characters. It cannot be that difficult!

Mary SF
Mary SF

It is true you have to give new characters a chance. All the vets on right now, were at one time the new kid on the block. Victor was suppose to be a temporary character and look what happen, now the character is at that core of the show. If the story is there, if the writing is there, and the acting is there- any new character has the potential to be tomorrow’s soap fave. I’m with you, give it time,we won’t know for a while yet if things are as gloomy as some think they are. They are only about 55 or 56 shows pass the 10,000- which MAB penned, in soap time that is nothing.

Susan
Susan

Michael, you can’t tell me this surprises you? This is something JFP does on a regular basis. Since I haven’t watched Days Of Our Lives in years, Srephen Nichols needs to come back to GH as Stephan Cassidine. Just my humble opinion.

I have been a fan for over 20 years, and I cannot for the life of me understand what has been going on with the show. It actually started a few years back when they started letting go of fine talents and their characters who have served the show so well over the years. It perplexes me even more how some of the other actresses and actors remain on the canvas. I can say without reservation that I have seen better performances from high school productions. The show has always been character driven. I feel like now it is more about the outlandish stories they decide to tell. Their decisions are manifesting in poor ratings and will eventually lead to their cancellation. Sad, but true.

Tucker’s sell-by date was long past and it was time for everyone to cut their losses on the character. If Days could get their act together, it would be great to see a return. GH is a better show at the moment, but with so many characters already on canvas, it’s hard to imagine him fitting in.

lisa

I like Stephen Nicols ,but never really had much use for Tucker – crappy storylines.
I would much rather see him on GH.

As for the character of Eden – it drove me crazy when she showed up in Genoa City…this whole mysterious story that supposedly happened between her and Noah in Paris that never came to fruition….and canning Kevin Schmidt (Noah) BIG MISTAKE and I don’t like newest version of Kevin either (he seems to old to be Nick and Sharon’s son).
Not happy with Y&R these days.

lisa

I meant newest version of Noah ,lol !

YESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!! Time to go back to DAYS!!!!!!

The character of Tucker has never made sense or clicked with anyone. Perhaps it was due to the botched storyline that made Jill NOT Katherine‘s daughter, or the fact that Stephen never put much effort into the role. Whatever the case, this is no loss for the show. A high salary for a “name“ actor that did. Nothing for the show. That was Maria‘s specialty.

Kelly Ripa Shares Her Grief and Remembrances of John Callahan on ‘Live with Kelly and Ryan’

There was always something special about the wonderful actors and the cast pictured here from ABC’s All My Children.  After all, this is where Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) met her husband, Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo) and where Eva LaRue (Ex-Maria) met her ex-husband John Callahan (Ex-Edmund).

Now on Monday’s episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, which is being done remotely from the hosts individual hosts due to the coronavirus pandemic, Kelly Ripa shared her grief over the loss of her dear friend John Callahan with Ryan.

Kelly said “I had a really a bad weekend this weekend.  A very dear friend of mine for many, many years, almost 30 years, passed away over the weekend. He was a great actor, a really good friend. One of the funniest people I’ve ever met. He was the ex-husband of my first-born son’s godmother, Eva LaRue. His name was John Callahan. He was 66 years old—way too young to be taken from us.”

Ripa went on to to tell her co-host: “A gentleman of, I mean, Ryan, you two would have loved each other. He would say the funniest things and we were all going through our brains about all of the funny, like the funny ‘Callahan-isms’ over the years. He was just one of these guys and you know and he just died way too soon. His daughter and my daughter are good friends, they’re the same age and I just want everyone to know, Eva and Kaya, that we are thinking of you and we are just so sad and so devastated. So, I apologize in advance if I seem out of it. I really actually am, I’m terribly out of it. You know, forgive me for it.”
