We Don’t Need Anymore New People

CBS, SONY and Mal Young ARE Destroying This Beloved Show.

EVERY Fan Is Correct About This

And So Are People Who Have Been Responding To This Including Eric Braeden

And I Applaud Him Coming Out In Public And Saying STOP! Fix The Problems At Y and R

I’m Only Going To Say This Once.

The Young And The Restless Died When Jeanne Cooper – Katherine Died.

CBS Needs To Cancel The Show, Before Things Get Worse Like A Fan Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands……

Hi Kevin, Kevin here, lol…I agree with you on everything you said except I believed that Y&R died in 2006/2007 when they let Kay Alden and behind the scenes staff go along with the music department (Jack Allocco and David Kurtz)with the beautiful CLASSIC background music…THANK goodness I can still hear the beautiful background music on B&B…CBS/Sony, PLEASE listen up, us long time fans have been begging you to listen to us but you aren’t listening and making the changes that need to be done for this once classic show…it’s a SHAME what Y&R has become and what it is… Read more »

WHY????? Mal Young can’t even utilize the bloated cast he has now – HE NEEDS TO GO ALONG WITH ALL THESE NEWBIES!!!

Lots of younger characters coming to Genoa City. Someone new for Devon or Nathan?

Why don’t they get rid of Duh Yawn? He’s been on for a decade and still can’t act. I never understood what Hillary saw in that young man. Then we have DR Knat who walks around sans shirt while wearing a stethoscope, who also cannot. I also cannot stand Lily’s kids or the girl to whom Hillary played big sister. I like Neil, but he’s never on. At least Kristoff St John can act.

Oh Harry, how right you are. I never thought anyone could make me appreciate Devon, but Nate has done it. Are we really supposed to take him seriously? He simply has the answers to everything: love, sex, relationships, death, guilt, martial arts, Victor’s illness, pumping iron. Too bad he can’t grasp even the basic rudiments of acting. Ditto that awful Charlie and always beside- the-point Shauna. Can’t wait to see what new “character” they’ll foist on us next.

Plus Nate almost never has his shirt on.
They are slowly putting all the vets on the back burner. Paul, Michael, Lauren etc.

I do not watch the Young and Restless anymore. Mal Young HAS RUINED what use to be a very GOOD soap opera. Not the first show that man has ruined. Shame on CBS as well…I have gotten rid of that channel on my tv.

Ok, this makes no sense! Kill off and banish characters the fans love and load up the screen with Mal Young’s new creations. Word up! NO ONE CARES ABOUT REY AND HIS FAMILY! I like Cait Fairbanks, but I could do without Tessa. I believe they are trying to bring the next generation forward. But, can it be done gradually? To be honest I don’t want to see five days a week of Kyle, Summer , Ray, Arturo and Lola. I know the suits want young and fresh, but is your target audience watching? Jill, Ashley, Jack, Christine, Paul, Lauren,… Read more »

I care about Rey and his family. I find them a breath of fresh air. I’m sure there are others like me who are tired of seeing the same couples go round and round endlessly. Y&R is a show desperate for new blood. On the opening credits today, the youngest cast members shown were mid-40s. That’s not sustainable for a soap opera long-term — especially one called “The YOUNG and the Restless.”

Hey, ain”t nothing wrong with young and yes, you do need the next generation for a show to go forward. But, it should also be inclusive of the other talents on the show who happen to be over the age of 40. That’s all I am saying.

In total agreement with you , recycling the same people repeatedly . The veterans don’t have to go they can be integrated into the story lines. I love Rey and his family

Davetta Sherwood!the 2nd lily.
Days rehires actors all the time for other roles, why cant y n r do the same?
She was an excellent lily, imo even better than the original..and now with Christell on recurring the time is perfect.
I dont think they even should ve let her go the first time! She was a hit with fans. Now the ptb can correct a wrong

I imagine Mandy will be Devon’s new love interest, I’ve been reading about. Hopefully he can take down his shrine to St.Hilary.

Good!I like new characters I like new everything.
New keeps everything fresh and brings new stories..
Y&R is gathering a YOUNG cast..
It is the Young and the restless so it stands to reason Young people are need..
When Y&R started near 50 years ago many of the cast Was young.

It will be good, time moves on..

In case you haven’t been following, Mal Young’s so-called attempt to bring “new” and “fresh” characters in for his LAME AS HELL stories is driving viewers away – nearly a half million!!!

Hey Suoo, I know you love Billy. What did you think of today’s scene featuring Billy hitting the sheets with Summer. On one hand, it kind of sickened me but on the other, they were kind of hot. I had no idea that they could generate that kind of steamy chemistry.

hi Harry 🙂

ahh the I’m hurt make me feel better sex can be quite raw, it’s pure sex not emotional just a feel good moment.
but- it wasn’t in a crypt LOL

No doubt Sharon’s feel good sex will be with Rey..
and-
Phyllis feel good sex will be with Jack ..

Y&R sex is like musical chairs lol ..they will make the sex rounds so everyone will feel better and create a lot of soapy problems..
They always seem to end up with whom they started with.

but yes!! Summer and Billy was Hot..
Billy is hot with whomever he is doing the nasty with 😉

ENOUGH ALREADY. No more casting news. Bump up the story on current characters. Clearly this character is like every other new character with a voice that requires Devon to discover it and nuture it and then sleep with it.

Can’t Devon discover her in a nightclub but this woman already knows she has a voice but hasn’t gotten the break?!! We already had dull Tessa’s “I can’t believe you believe in me story”.

Oh, God…NOT ANOTHER NEW CHARACTER!!!!! It’s bad enough that they cut longtime veteran Doug Davidson loose. But yet another new character…NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

Later.

Again, Doug Davidson was NOT fired. He’s simply not a regular cast member, which means he is not guaranteed X amount of episodes per year.

This show will soon be unrecognizable!
The sooner Mal Young and his Merry-Band-of-Show-Killers is GONE, the better off everyone will be!

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

Mike Richards Out as EP of ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

What has become of the beloved game show treasure Jeopardy!, since the death of its iconic Alex Trebek, will surely at some point be made into a movie with backstage drama galore and breaking headlines news all along the way.

Now comes an official statement from Sony Pictures Television that they have now let-go of Mike Richards from his duties as executive producer of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

This comes after Richards controversial choice as the new syndicated host amid allegations, lawsuits and what seemed to be the final straw, The Ringer’s report and findings of insensitive and sexist comments made by Richards on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted in 2013 and 2014.

Suzanne Prete, EVP, Business and Strategy, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, sent out an internal note to the staff on both shows this morning. The content included that Richards would depart his EP roles effective immediately and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies stepping in to do the job on an interim basis.

According to Deadline, the note read as follows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.  Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. 

So, what do you think of all the twists and turns that have now led to Richards ousting as host and his EP duties on two game show? Comment below.
