“I’m Back.   It’s redemption time.  You can’t keep a bad man down!”  Those are the tag lines  spoken by the new Adam Newman in the new CBS Daytime promo ushering in Justin Hartley as the new black sheep of the Newman clan.

Hartley makes his Genoa City debut on The Young and the Restless  on Wednesday November 5th!  Clearly with Hartley as Adam, the number one sudser is also teasing: “Being bad never looked so good in a major way!

With a new face, and plenty of revenge on his mind, what will happen when Hartley as Adam returns to town?  And will anyone  catch on that this is Adam?  How will the show bring Adam back into the mix? fFnd out soon!

Until then watch the Justin Hartley Y&R promo after the jump! Tell us if you are excited to see Adam’s story finally have its kick-off in less than two weeks?

He’s definitely going to be a smarmy rogue with sex appeal through the roof!!! It’s a different take on Adam with that smarmy “you can’t resist this” smirk in a 30 second promo. Ok JH..bring it on…i’ll give a go for sure…hmm..could they have seriously made two of the best recasts in SOAP HISTORY???

One of the biggest letdowns in years. He shows up looking like The Mummy shouting “Shut Up”. Laughable if not downright dumb. Y&R just continues to sink under JFP’s idiocy.

YAh as long he as doesn’t do it with a preppy smile lol .. I do not know if he will be a good Adam, he has not yet portrayed Adam.. (most said the same about Burges being Billy, before he actually portrayed Billy, and that turned out terrible .. lol.. ”sexy and good looking does mean he can be a good Adam.. 🙂 No way to rationally/ logically know he will be a good Adam until he actually portrays Adam.. Phyllis, Billy and Adam are not replaceable… and too many others have left Y&R that once made it great..… Read more »

As usual, you’re right, Su. None of us is able to predict how Justin will fare as Adam. I have seen him act, though. He can be quite fascinating. And, of course good looks do not pave the way to good acting; however, I’d rather look at a face that’s easy on the eye than not. Believe me, I realize this makes me sound superficial, but, it is human nature. I had never seen or heard of Burgess before Y&R. So, imagine my surprise…I could not control my revolting stomach…Not a very appealing countenance, especially after being used to BM’s… Read more »

But….but……but…..SU000….. I hate to be the one who is constantly calling you out on your self contradictions, but no one else will so here goes–1. In your comment above, you say Phyllis cannot be replaced but a week or so ago you state that Gina is doing a fabulous job as Phyllis. 2. You also assert in the aforementioned post that Billy Miller is doing a great job as Jason (and he is) but before he was cast, you maintain that a recast wasn’t possibly for the character of Jason. And finally, you rightfully assert that you cannot judge Justin… Read more »

“… sudser is also teasing: “Being bad never looked so good in a major way! ” LOL dang’ed it…. He certainly looks the part… and intriguing his physical presence is imperative…. along with ACT I never really kept up with passions…. ala… all I know of his profession’ he’s listed as 6’3″… alotta hunk I sincerely wish him well…. and I mean that because of working with Eric Braeden this is nitpicking…. his adams apple and voice… are not Michael Muhney…. nill and moot point I hope he has chemistry with Sharon Case… as it’s tiresome already… Sharon and Nick…… Read more »

Adam’s apple? You noticed his Adam’s apple doesn’t look like Michael Muhney’s?
Patrick, your eye for detail and propensity for nit picking is impressive.
I say at least he has an Adam’s Apple! It could be worse–they could have cast Bruce Jenner in the role.

I prefer to see Michael Muhney’s Adam redeemed…not a newbie!! Michael was put through hell with that story line and I feel should be the beneficiary of redemption. Just saying…that’s how I feel.

Michael Muhney’s portrayal of Adam Newman established the character as a major force on Y&R. This guy is a pretender. Hunky yes, but acting wise? Where’s the beef? The Adam Newman that people fell in love with is dead.

I never thought the character of Adam was bad– just misunderstood—-LOL. And that is what I loved about MM’s take on the character, I could hate the acts they wrote for the character but all the while I felt sorry for him and wanted someone to see he isn’t as evil as he likes people to think. I just hope JH take on the character is similar– I really don’t want Adam to become Victor 2.0– who is just a control freak and a bully and I don’t want him to mean just to be mean. A rogue is fine–… Read more »

Sorry to say what I think…but I think the character is going to be totally different and unrecognizable as Adam. For two things, Justin is taller and has brown eyes. Those things don’t change when you’re in an accident, even severely burned.

thank you soap gods!
with joe, austin , dylan and nick, adam is amping up y n r s sex appeal!!!
now if we can get tyler and carmine back on, i may never fast forward thru y n r again!!!

CeeCee

There is unequivocally no sex appeal emanating from any of Dylan’s pores; speaking as I woman…JMO. He reminds me of a lumbering bear.
Austin? Maybe.
Joe and Nick…what can I say? …..especially Joe, with that come-hither look from his sidelong steamy glances.

I’m forwarding this to your husband! Joe is awesome. Maybe he should have been the new Adam? The lady who plays the role of Avery SHOULD NOT BE GETTING PAID!

CeeCee
Guest

You’re right, Timmm. Avery should do this for free. I don’t know if she was supposed to act flustered but it looked to me she turned 50 shades of gray..er, I mean red, when she came face to face with Joe. I wonder if she holds it against the writers for not having been given the chance to play footsie with Joe….LOL. Maybe, she will…who knows in soapland !!!!
Justin is not too shabby either.
I agree that Scott would have been more suited playing Adam just as Justin would have been playing Billy.

Hi CeeCee, 1. To begin with, ‘lumbering bear’…GOOD ONE…LMAO!!!!! And, totally true!!!!! 2. More and more, I CANNOT BELIEVE that Avery went from a TOTAL HUNK (aka Joe) to an UTTER DORK (aka Dylan). B-L-E-C-H!!!!! 3. More and more, I have this I-M-A-G-E of that TOTALLY HUNKY Joe getting a chick pregnant just by looking at her…LOL!!!!! To me, Joe is that D-R-E-A-M-Y!!!!! H-E-L-L-O!!!!! 4. Y-E-S. As much as I L-O-V-E the character of Joe Clark, Scott Elrod would have been A W-A-Y BETTER CHOICE to play Adam Newman and Justin Hartley would have been A W-A-Y BETTER CHOICE to… Read more »

Once again, Y&R blows it. CBS hypes the new Adam and he wrapped in bandages? Only line he utters is “Shut Up”. BIG FAIL.

Remembering One Life to Live on the 10th Anniversary of its Final Episode on ABC

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the final broadcast of ABC’s One Life to Live. The beloved soap opera was canceled back in April of 2011 along with All My Children, and continued to air till January 13, 2012.

As the story goes, after some false starts, the show wound up in the hands of Prospect Park in an attempted online reboot of the series which lasted some 40 plus episodes, and one season on Hulu in 2013.

Photo: ABC Archives

Agnes Nixon’s brainchild first took to the airwaves back on July 15, 1968 on ABC, and tackled many of the social issues of our time, delivered unforgettable performances, beloved soap on-screen couples, and often humorous and edgy storylines.

When the soap was initially canceled by ABC, we took to our former site to share our thoughts in the piece here back in 2011.

At the end of its 43-year-run it was then EP Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati who took the show to third place in the ratings among six soaps, and delivered a one-two punch of heart, humor, and drama to close out the ABC run of  One Life. (We have posted the final episode below).

Photo: ABC

Through the years the actors who graced the screen were ,and are, some of the all-time great actresses including: Erika Slezak, Robin Strasser, Judith Light, Jessica Tuck, Susan Haskell, and so many more.

It also brought us the talented actors including: Al Freeman Jr., Roger Howarth, Trevor St. John, Gerald Anthony, Michael Zaslow, Robert S. Woods, Ryan Phillippe, Nathan Fillion, and the list goes on.

Below, rewatch the final episode, and the extremely well-crafted and delivered speech given by the character of Viki on the penultimate episode, how soap operas touch so many lives a la “Fraternity Row” (But, as we all know, the show was speaking directly to the longtime viewers at home about their cancellation!)

Those videos are followed two emotional interviews we conducted on the final press day of ABC’s One Life to Live with Kassie DePaiva and Kristen Alderson, then Hillary B. Smith and Robert S. Woods that we are reposting here.

Now, share your thoughts and remembrances of when you watched the final episodes of One Life to Live, and how you still miss it to this day via the comment section.

Former Guiding Light star, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis) shared his enthusiasm and ‘thank you’s’ after his casting news went viral, that he is replacing Richard Burgi in the role of Ashland Locke on The Young and the Restless.  Burgi was let go after not adhering to Y&R’s Covid protocols, according to the actor himself.

Meanwhile, Newman took to his Facebook page and made this statement: “Thanks to everyone for the sweet posts and messages about my joining the cast of Y&R. I couldn’t be more pleased. I’ve had great respect for the show and its wonderful cast for many, many years. I’m happy to be a part of it. I had a lovely zoom meeting with Josh Griffith and Anthony Morina last night. We talked quite a bit about the character, and I’m very excited by the scripts I’m getting so far. I’m scared to death, of course, but I think that’s healthy.  It’ll be a new adventure and I’m feeling pretty blessed to have the opportunity. Cheers”

Look for Robert to make his Y&R debut in February.

So, what are your thoughts of Robert coming to Y&R as the new Ashland Locke, after Richard Burgi departed over the daytime drama’s Covid-19 health and safety protocols? Weigh-in via the comment section below.
