I love Justin Hartley as the new Adam Newman, he is sexy and a wonderful actor. Also I love Kelly Sullivan as Sage, I smell a Romance brewing for Nick and Sage.

Steve Burton/Dylan McAvoy & Sean Carrigan/Ben “Stitch” Rayburn and their storylines are the main reasons I watch Y&R!

I am enjoying Avery and Joe. I would have loved yesterday’s reveal episode but was it filmed differently than previous episodes? The dialogue was off too. Made it almost unwatchable for me?

I could like Avery and Joe if Joe didn’t, to me, come off like he is a potential rapist.

At times he seems charming, but when he is not getting what he wants, he gets mean or at least his facial affect appears to be.

I know he’s creepy

Agreed. Why does this show always make these really good looking guys assholes?

Not liking this predictable story line with Nick. He is such a douche right now! All of those promises he made to Sharon…. he’s very unlikeable to watch for me. Not only that, but they’re just rehashing the “Nick died in a plane crash” storyline from several years back. Remember then a beautiful young woman nursed Nick back to health and he was romantically linked to her? Sage is just the latest in a long line.

Here’s a great way to make Nick interesting: he just confessed he’s done with women, so let him explore other sides of his sexuality!

Watching him call everyone “dude” and his indignation with the woman he promised to love “no matter what” are not doing him any favors.

I’ve never been a huge fan of Y&R, but it is on fire lately. Justin Hartley is knocking it out of the park — charming with just the right cockiness with that remnant of hurt underneath. Gina Tognoni is a force of nature. I like this socially relevant plot about developers destroying neighborhoods for profit. There’s more life in this show than I’ve seen in 2 years. Way to go.

People who tuned out have tuned in to see new Phyllis and new Adam, hope they stay, but they may not hang in there unless Pratt can deliver some good stories..
((Y&R hopefully will get better when Pratt’s stories appear..
I like Victor and hope he gets written into bastard mode, again 🙂 that would be good..

It’s great news for Y&R..So happy for the show, it is doing so much better..It really boggles my mind that no mention of Corey Sligh brutal attack at RiteAid on Thanksgiving Day.

Fans & ex fans of the show came back to see the new Phyllis, Adam as well as Billy. I love the new Billy & the new Phyllis is knocking it out of the park. I really like the new Adam but I want to wait until I see him with Sharon. It’s hard to beat Shadam. I still remember them in New Orleans near the angel. That was nothing less than magic. I like to watch the video of it on Sharon Case twitter. I hope this Adam can be as successful with Sharon.

Nikki, I can get on board with Nu Phyllis and Nu Adam but the Nu Billy is terrible. He is not “Billy” and never will be. He is a wimpy poor version of the vibrant, bold “Billy” we all came to love.

I have to tell you Toscanti, you made me laugh. I thought the same way for the first while but as I got used to him he grew on me, now I think he’s kinda cute but I don’t like him with Victoria at all. I really like him with Chelsea. You sound like me only with that Summer. I just can’t stand her. The way she talks, walks, holds herself yuck. She makes me think of an amazon, & she’s about as sexy as a toad. If & when they bring back Kyle I hope they find a new & sexy Summer to play love scenes.This thing will make it look like a cartoon. JMO

With the new Adam and Phyllis, the more “fun” story lines can happen. I like the new Adam, Phyllis, and Billy. Dylan and Avery are still stiff but have relaxed a little. Dylan and Avery should be matched with really good actors who can pull them out of their “stiff” mode. I feel so sorry for Nikki, she is wrapped tighter than a drum. Nikki looks so miserable in her tight clothes….unclench this woman, let her breathe! Overall, I think Y&R is great. Keep it up, I am loving it.

I’m glad that the current writers delivered these numbers right before Pratt’s stuff airs in 2015. I hope he’s realized he can’t come in and destroy the history of the show.

Those grass roots efforts clamoring for the firing of JFP are probably cringing when they see these numbers. Say what they want, she must be doing something right.

I can’t wait for Adam and Cbelsea to start up again. I hope the chemistry she shared with MM is there as well. My favorite time for them was when Adam was helping Chesea study for her G.E.D. Which eventually ended with them dancing in the rain in the dress her bought for her and proposing Classic soap opera. I am loving the new Adam. Why they got rid of Heather Thom’s brother is beyond me. He was more bearable then this guy. This actor seems to old to be Billy. He comes off as to fake and plastic.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Felicity actually was the first parent sentenced in the entire admissions scandal that broke several months ago.

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
