As previously announced, today January 30th, 2014 is the final airdate of two of the most popular actors ever to appear on the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless.  Of course, we are talking about Billy Miller (Billy) and Michael Muhney (Adam).

Viewers have witnessed over this week a burgeoning showdown between Billy Abbott and Adam Newman over Billy’s discovery that Adam was the hit and run driver who killed his little girl, Delia months ago.  Billy has confronted Adam with a gun at the site where Delia was killed, and as we head into Thursday’s episode, Billy reveals he has plans for Adam that don’t include taking him to the police station!

In a preview clip from CBS.com on today’s episode, looks like Adam is driving somewhere and Billy is holding a gun on him!   This won’t end well probably for either character!

What we do know is that its’ time for fans of Y&R to say their farewells to both Miller and Muhney who left the show late last year under different circumstances.  Miller chose not to renew his contract and Muhney was fired.

Watch a preview for today’s episode after the jump! Then let us know what you think will happen?  And, if you watched the episode, let us know what you thought of where it left the characters of Billy and Adam! Remember, next week David Tom returns to the role of Billy Abbott on February 3rd.   Will you miss Mr. Miller and Mr. Muhney?  Let us  know!

The character of Billy will not be the same. I didn’t like Tom before and I doubt that it will be any different this time. Sorry to see Billy go, wish him luck in his endavors.

I agree, Tom never fulfilled the role for me I’m nervous as to how this will fit in the weeks to come. I never had a care for Muhney since the day he picked up the role. I think past “Adams” suited the role better. Should be interesting.

… Tom deserves a chance I suppose. But he never seemed right in the role to me either M. I hope he’s grown as a performer or he’s really going to be out of his depth with this role.

He will look like Victoria’s little brother. I don’t see them in romantic scenes the Billy Miller was with the character Victoria. Maybe they are going to replace Victoria with more immature looking actress?

Tom is definitely too young and looks young. I don’t think this is a good move for the show. Victoria needs someone strong.

I’ve been watching for 35 years. I named my daughter “Ashley” of course after Ashley Abbott. I am very disappointed that Billy and Michael left. I don’t think that the new actor for Billy fits well with Victoria. I didn’t know that Adam’s character wouldn’t be back. Or if he does come back, I wasn’t aware that another actor would be playing his part. They’re both great actors. I defiantly watch the show for the actor’s, because everyone knows that the writers need to be replaced. I will still watch, and hope that the story lines improve.

I’ve been watching Y & R for years. Billy and Adam were great actors on this show. I can’t believe that a contract could not be reached on Billy and Adam was fired. Of course, we are out here in the public and we do not know what goes on behind closed doors, but those 2 actors were great on this show. The new Billy can’t even compare to the old Billy. I hope Y & R wakes up and brings both of these actors back. If you don’t, I believe in the long run it may not be good for the show.

The truth of the matter is, Tom does not fit the role of Billy. They need to immediately get rid of him and replace him with the real Billy, that played an excellent role. Tom looks and act like a little boy or some cartoon character. He can’t act. If they want to keep their fans and ratings up, listen to us and get the real Billy back. Send Stitch to his secret life too. He’s a nerd.

Nobody is going to stop watching. Please these two did not start the show and they will not end the show

I am sorry, but you are so wrong.. I will not watch the Y&R again.. The only part of the story line was Adam & Chelsea. And w/o Michael Muhney the show is not worth watching. There are other shows on TV!! Whenever a main actor is replaced by another actor.. It is never the same. Should have worked it out with Michael Muhney.. I wish Michael and Billy the very best. And hope to see them on TV soon!!!

You are wrong. Somebody will stop watching- that somebody being me. If anyone needs to be fired from the Y+R- its the writers and those that sit in the executive chairs. Without Adam and Billy- both whom were in scenes with Jack…the story line is BORING.
I’m recording Ellen now on NBC.

Mary

…. I know you’d like to – but you can’t and don’t dicate the viewing habits of others. I suspect there will be some loss of viewers as has been the case in the past when other popular characters have left any daytime soap or primetime offering. Will it end the show – most likely not. But it is the only option viewers have when not happy with the direction of a daytime or primetime series.

i definitely won’t watch the show again..those were the best two roles…the rest …well… boring…

But they made it very interesting, and I will miss the Billy Abbott, no one can replace him, and Adam needs a happier ending, I just don’t think he was treated right just when he was trying to turn his life around, I hate it when they keep replacing the Character, except The picked a good one when the picked Victoria that was a good choice and blended with the family better.

Sandy

I’ve been watching on and off for 20 years, more on now that there is DVR. I loved Adams character for the flawed human being that he was and for the way he wanted to change for his son. The whole story line was sad. I think the show is really boring without those story lines and really boring for losing such great characters. I’ll be watching where they go and I’m looking forward to watching a new show.

Some people will definitely stop watching the show. I will be one of them! A few weeks back my husband shook his head at me like he couldn’t believe I was watching such drivel. I told him, ” I know the writing is just awful on this show, but they have a few good actors, I really enjoy. Watch this guy. He is so good. He is the main reason I watch.” He watched Micheal’s character with me for a minute and agreed that he was really good. When his character was killed off, they killed off my reason for watching! While the show still has 2 to 3 remaining quality actors, the stories are so bad, I just can’t make myself watch anymore. For Adam, I could even make myself watch Victor Newman, and that’s saying a lot, because I can’t stand that character! There are not enough adjectives to describe how truly horrendous it is to watch that ridiculous character!

Tad

I have watched for 20 some odd years. I will miss both characters but will keep watching. I loved Adam. I could always side with his character.

Vera

I have watched for 25 plus years. Since both Billy and Adam left I am no longer interested in watching…and haven’t!

Sharon and Adam were a romantic true love affair. That will be missed. Not please with his role these day and that scarf burning and now leaving Billy in the car shameful what they do to certain characters. Dru needs to return and Victor has become disgracful

K

Billy left Adam in the burning car!

Joanne

OMG! No. The Sharon Newman character needs to go. I am so tired of “Sharon” and if by some chance MM returns, the two storylines should never intersect again. And, the day that “Dru” re-enters the show is the day I turn off Y&R forever! I think it’s highly ironic that Billy goes out of his mind with rage at Adam who accidentally killed Delia and “left her there to die on the side of the road” and then he purposely walks away from Adam trapped in the car that then blows up, leaving him to die on the side of the road. Billy had intent, Adam did not. And, now we’re supposed to watch a weak actor struggle with “Delia’s death and Adam’s culpability” for weeks/months. Nope, I just can’t do it. Sadly, while arguing that we should support the show and other actors (earlier this week) I now feel as though I’ve just gotten fed up. There are characters that I just can’t stand, storylines that are stupid, annoying and insult our intelligence and actors who can’t (act, that is). Melody Thomas Scott, Amelia Heinle, Josh Morrow and a few others (“Abby”, “Dillon”, “Avery”, “Chelsea” and “Jack”) I’m sorry to say that I may have just reached the end of my Y&R rope. You guys were great, including Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. But, you all aren’t in enough good storylines anymore to keep me watching. Since you tape 6 weeks or more ahead of time, there is no chance that by Friday you will unravel this huge mess you’ve made. But, I’ll give you until Friday anyway. After that, I’m afraid that I just can’t give you an hour a day anymore.

Tad

I too am not pleased with the burning of the scarf but somehow I think Kelly killed Dee Dee so I will continue to watch. I think everyone is too hard on Victor.

Katie

I think Michael Muhany did a good job in the role of Adam, and he was fired! where is the innocent til proven guilty!! takin the word of fellow actor not cool I liked him in the role and hedeserves an award

betty

AMEN!!!

Tad

I cannot believe Adam was fired. For what? I loved his acting!! I hate when they bring on new actors in the old roles and we are suppose to care about them like before.

mary ann

I guess I am way too slow. I knew the voice of Billy off and all that blood masked things, BUT this Billy needs to GO. It is a sacrifise for such good Actors to stay and play our Favorite Actors. Job offers must be plentiful. Who can blame them? So I will Turn ff and Do Netflix in that time slot. Adam was unique and under rated. Good luck you guys. THE new direction of a show I have watche from month one is over.

Diana Heidi

Billy is such a super actor honeslty. This new guy cannot reach even hight of real Billy Miller ankle Happy that Victoria is getting divorce from this “tom whoever’ no chemistry between them whatsoever. Also too bad…because Adam & Billy held the show in high standart. I loved Adam’s acting – same as Billy’s acting performance…..they were so natural and kept us wanting more from them. Oh Billy why did you NOT sign the new contract?
Y/R are sinking as fast as Titanic without you two.
And that bloody Sharon ?????….OMG what is that imbecile still doing there & how long is she going to keep the secret from Nick. Unbelievable, she is the worst actor there….Vicki..the best, since Michelle/Phyllis left.

I really enjoyed them both. I’m just upset that Adam got blamed for everything & really never had a chance. Doesn’t sound like he got a chance for real either. As for Billy I really liked him too. They just always made him to be such a lousy husband. Not cool all the time. The last thing for me was when you made Adam hit Delia, not cool either. He got the bad part always. I quit taping Y&R after that. He needed to have a chance. Just like he did now. I love them both & I hated to see them go. I don’t watch much anymore, maybe someday.

don’t give up Deborah. I too watched in high school and love Ash but that’s in her contract to be a bit part. Shes on Days. I love Adam. He will be missed.

Jesse

Loved Billy who’s the character now, don’t love billy who’s coming in brand new to take his role. He sucks!!! he looks and he is a terrible actor. He’s no Billy Miller.

Michael Muhney and Billy Miller should get Emmy’s for their role. I have been watching the show since I was 8 years old and now I am 43 eeks. I loved these two characters. They were exciting to watch. Two best actors. Now I am disappointed. Very…. They should at least bring michael muhney back somehow, I don’t think they should have fired a very good actor. Maybe suspension or some fine. Not being fired off the show. That’s not well thought out. He was amazing.

amanda

Love Michael Muhney and Billy Miller been watching this for about six mon andstarted love the show I will not watch no more since there gone sorry

Paige

The new billy doesn’t suck. He actually sorta looks like the old billy. He is not a terrible actor either. I’m sorry but you have very wrong opinion. And Michael got fired cause he did something very wrong.

Karen

ALLEDGEDLY did something wrong.

Adam and Billy will definitely be missed its simply not the same…

Christen

These two guys are/were my favorites on the show. Both extremely good actors and will go on to better things I am sure. I will miss them greatly. I am really irritated about this and at this point don’t care to even watch Y&R again. That is sad because I have watched for 30 something years. Bring Michael Muhney back!!! The show should have room for both him and Eric Braeden. I have doubts as to whether he did what he is accused of!?

Paige

Michael got fired and Eric wanted to do other things.

I have been watching Y&R since 1987, and with all of my life responsibilities, I have only watched the show sporadically because I just didn’t have time and wouldn’t bother staying up late to watch the DVR show. This past week, however, I made it a point to watch each and every show. I fast forwarded to the parts with Billy and Adam because the acting was phenomenal and these two characters are my favorites. I have not researched the details of why they are leaving the show but am disappointed the the powers to be could not find a way to keep two pivotal actors in the declining age of the soap opera. Best of luck to Billy Miller and Michael Muhney; I have not doubt they will travel to prime time success and the soap opera will crash and burn, especially with such poor leadership.

deborah foster
deborah foster

I am very upset that Michael Muhney was fired and forced to leave the show. He embodied that character completely and even if Adam miraculously survived that crash and fire and they bring on a “new” Adam, it will never be the same. No one but Michael Muhney can do that role. I just wish they could have worked something out to keep him on the show. I know what he “alledgedly” did ,and frankly there’s two sides to every story. I would much rather see the actress who plays Summer go. She brings very little to the character and the show and if they killed off het character it would be no great loss. Perhaps she’s related to the creator, producer, director, or writers of the show the way some of the other actresses are. As for Billy Miller, they are foolish to let him go especially if it was over a contract dispute…some actors are indispensable. These two, Michael Muhney and Billy Miller are. I’ll not be watching your show after this debacle unless you bring these two iconic actors back.

Billy Miller will prob show up in the Bold and Beautiful. They are the #1 show for shuffling their characters from one to the other. After all, they are both created by the Bell Group!

Rosie Johnson

Billy Miller, Michael Muhney great actors. Not pleased with new Billy. Try a stronger actor. Michael Muhney is a great actor. Bring him back if possible.

Shari

I wholeheartedly agree! I, too have watched for more than 30 years. Michael played the incredibly complcated and troubled Adam with depth not found in most soap actors. As much as you want to hate Adam, you find yourself pulling for him. The “new” Billy is dreadful and not believable in the role. Billy Miller is the ONLY Billy Abbott in my opinion! These two were the only story lines I watched-the rest-fast forward. While I wish them both much success, my selfish side wishes they would RETURN!

keydj
keydj

do you think the writers will see these comments? do you think these comments and the way people feel will make a difference in their decision on the show? I sure hope so, BRING BACK BILLY AND ADAM…..

KAREN
KAREN

No one else can play the character of Billy Abbott as well as Billy Miller. Again, Y&R has let a great actor go because of money. Michael Muhney,also will be missed. Y&R is being ruined and turning off decades long loyal viewers and then when it is cancelled, Y&R big shots will blame the FANS!!

RJ

No way Billy Miller is the only Billy. I am not happy and I will stop watching the show now. I have been watching it for over 30 years. Also, I like the other Adam better too.
Letting changes like this is the reason the soaps are not making it. CBS pay Billy Miller what he wants.

KGB

Amen! I LOVE Billy Miller! I’m so very sad!!! 🙁

YES! Pay Billy what he deserves…We want BILLY BACK we want BILLY BACK…Oh and ADAM TOO…

I am 42 years old. I have watched Y&R since I was 8. I have seen characters come and go or be replaced. The current changes will bring about a change Y&R is not looking for. Viewers will change their mind about Y&R and you will see numbers drop. I doubt if they receive an daytime Emmy this year. I will miss both characters. I do not wish to see the old Billy return. He was sickening. No one will measure up to Billy and Michael, the current Adam.

gabby

I have been watching off and on for almost 20 years. If they had this old-new Billy back then, the story line wouldn’t have happened with the old Victoria. As I believe they are real life brother and sister (the previous Victoria).
Either way, he looks too young compared to the Victoria they have now. She wasn’t my favorite at first, but she grew on me next to Billy Miller. For the first time in regards to a soap opera, I am truly upset about this change. I hope Miller reconsiders.

This is an outrage! Billy Miller is the only one that can play his role! No one can ever take his place! Michael was a very good actor and will be missed. Maybe you can bring back a familier face for Adam. The last character that played Adam was a good one.

Billy Miller COME BACK!!!!!!!

I agree Michael was the best actor on the show and the new Billy looks too young for the part and is a terrible actor.

I agree hope miller considers coming back

Kim

I have been watching Y&R for 35 years and have not missed an episode. I just happened to see today’s show as it was recording and about fell off the chair. I knew Adam was getting fired due to being accused of “getting fresh” with Summer and some of the other ladies when it was not wanted. I had no idea about Billy Miller leaving. The new Billy is the old Victoria’s brother in real life and how could you bring someone back to play the role of Billy when he was Noah (Victoria’s nephew) many years ago. Y&R fans don’t forget things like that and cannot replace Billy with who used to play Nick and Sharon’s son. I cannot believe that Y&R was stupid enough to let Billy Miller leave. This show will never be the same and someone needs to slap Victor..he is getting rather ridiculous and really annoying. This may be the last time I watch the show..sad!

Patti

Amen, sister….. I’ll still watch but it won’t be the same. Y&R fan since day one!!!

The young and the restless really should have kept billy miller as billy. He was an original. I also agree with a comment one viewer said. She said the new billy looks like Victorias little brother. Big mistake y&r

and I must sa you have been ver you have been very informative I’ve been watc I’ve been watching The Young and the Restless close to 35years I am very on the outcom of Billy and Adam departure when it comes when it comes to Victor that is still my man!! I will continue watching the young and restless because I’m a True Fan!! to the retur of my of my girl { Dru }…

change…life IS change… but PLEASE, do NOT make us suffer thru the wacko storyline of nicky’s past lover crazy man who comes back from the past!!!!!! AWFUL…. who wants to watch this….?? not me, might be time for me to cut the y and r habit!! after many years…. makes me want to SCREAM!!

Joanne
Joanne

I agree so whole-heartedly! I hate that they are bringing this character out of the dustpan and throw him up at the audience as entertainment. Then on top of that we have to watch him simpering around “Summer” the one who allegedly got “Adam” a great actor fired. Too much, just too much.

w will never watch y&r again i will miss Adam so much he”s the reason was a success. please try to get him to return

Mary anne

I hate this guy as Billy!! He is even trying to talk like Billy Miller! He gives me the creeps. I may stop watching the show because of this. It would have been better if Billy would have died in the show!

Kim
Kim

I agree! He tries to have the same mannerisms and act like Billy Miller…he is losing and really gives me the creeps too. He looks so much younger than Victoria and I would agree that he looks like her young brother. Y&R has went way downhill fast. If someone don’t get Victor under control, I might just end up slapping the TV soon. Y&R staff is just sad for letting Billy Miller go..he was very handsome and sexy and quite the actor. I am still watching but thank heavens for fast forward on the DVR because some of it is so stupid anymore, I can’t stomach to watch. Since I have watched for over 35 years, it will be hard to stop but I just may because of what the show as become.

sandra

It will not be the same without Billy Miller as Billy! I can’t imagine Y&R without Adam and Michael Muhney was my favorite actor on Y&R. Whatever he did, I don’t care- hire him back!

Kelley

I will miss Billy Miller too. He did a great job. Not a fan of Michael (Adam). I liked the old Adam, but I don’t blame him for leaving when he did. I will miss Billy. He was cute and sweet.

Ines
Ines

I can’t believe that the 2 characters I most liked are gone! No one can replace either of them on the show, I have been watching the show for over 20 years and can say that this will not help the show. I agree with all the comments recieved on the new Billy – he looks like a kid and way too yourng for Victoria. As for Michael, truely sad to see him go, maybe, the actress should have left instead – it would have been easier to replace her as I don’t find she adds to the show as much as Billy and Adam did. Bad executive decsions for y & r.

Moore
Moore

David Tom does look immature in stature as compared to Billy Miller and Amelia but if you really look closely at his facial features, his features appear a little more worn and older than both Billy Miller and Amelia. David’s stature makes him appear younger to some.

Anne
Anne

I want Michael Muhney as Adam, and I hate the new Billy. I agree with others here, he is too young and too doe-eyed to be Billy and his acting sucks! Billy Miller was cocky and confident and had a spark that was electric with Victoria. Why is Y & R firing some of their best? Hate this new Billy, and want Adam/Michael back… oh, yeah… already said that!, can’t say it enough! And, yes, I will stop watching!

Carol
Carol

I agree. Couldn’t believe it when Billy got out of the burning car! Really
thought Adam would survive! The new/old Billy is awful and looks like a teenager. Billy Miller was so good looking and played the part of Victoria’s tormented husband so well. Would even miss Adam if I was going to continue watching but guess I will no longer plan to be home no matter what at 12:30!
Has always been hard to readjust to character changes but this one is impossible! Have been watching since 1975 – would fold diapers while babies napped. But hey they say it only takes 4 weeks to change a habit -perhaps executives should take note of that!!

mileaway

I totally agree. It hurts to look at the new Billy. he is not attractive, looks like a kid. Need to shut his mouth and breath through his nose. He is not a fix at all. Victoria looks like she could be his mother. And for Adam, loved watching him, he really played his part on the show. I think these new changes are so sad. It is hard to watch the show anymore. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK

I am sorry but Billy and Adam made the show. You love to hate Adam. Felt so sorry for him. He didn’t mean to hurt Delia. I hate the new Billy. I am sorry but he doesn’t play the part of Billy very good at all too whinny acting. Wished you could bring them both back………………….

Very disappointed with the new Billy and the removal of both Billy and Adam. I grew up watching this show with my Mom and have been a fan for over 30 years…Bring them both back!

Tam

I’m 47 years of age and I can remember watching y&r since the age of ten with my mom . I am so disappointed in the choice that the writers made concerning Adams character. He fit the role perfectly and I hope they do better with Adams replacement. This Tom character has some big shoes to fill which he is doing a terrible job. He has no sex appeal, he is over acting his role to the point that I just want to skip him and get to the next scene please. He acting is awful!!!!

Arlene
Arlene

Tom just doesn’t suit the role of Billy. We’re going to miss both of the actors fired and my interest in the show isn’t what it was before. I’ll never figure out why two of the best actors are being replaced and no one will do the work justice. What a shame to abuse the reign of control this much.

Nancy C.Williams

I am so disappointed that Both Billy and Adam are off the show…!!!
This new guy…..playing Billy Abbott actually looks like the other Billy…..but not of the same character…….and I love Michael Muhney…..What a character he had to play…..Love him one minute and hate him the next…….Sometimes you want to hug him and the slap him at the same time……He was tailor made for that role….I dont care what he did to get fired……..He will be missed….!!!! and the same for Billy Miller…..I understand that Billy did not get fired……Nevertheless……..Those of us who have become addicted to Y & R should be considered …..I have learned to love Victor ‘s Character all these years……and he is an Ass……. I would like to say that I am speachless…..but as you can see…..I am not…!!!!!

Joyce Scharch

I think it was a HORRIBLE decision to fire Adam. There had to be a way to make things work and keep him. To let Summer go would have resulted in better rating for Y&R. Billy can not be replaced by this very DULL new Billy. Can’t stand him! I have watched Y&R since the very first airing and have always loved it (even through character changes) but this is to much. These two young men were the heart of Y&R. Please find some way to bring back Adam and Billy.

Shellie
Shellie

I cannot believe this. I was blindsided! I didn’t pay attention to what was coming up and I did not expect this at all. I have watched Y&R since 1990 and I cannot think of a day I did not want to watch it…until now. Get ready to join As The World Turns and Guiding Light! This show is going to tank! What are you people doing?! Summer is A HORRIBLE actress, I’ve been waiting for the day you kill her off and instead you kill off Adam? And Billy was the life of the show! This new Billy is just not going to cut it. I think it’s about time I find something else to watch during this time. I have been needing to watch something more worth my while, anyway, and you just made that a whole lot easier!

Lenore

I so agree!! but I was in shock to see Billy Miller leave the set as Billy. No, Tom will not be able to do what Billy character did and could do!! Yes Billy M was the life of the set! I’ve always admired Billy because he went as far as spending that $3 million to get the ‘black market’ baby to please his wife and look how Billy lost the $3 million like it was $300!! Now how wrong was that for the producers to NOT NEVER give Billy back what he lost!! Instead, they continue to making Billy look common, bad, gambler, drinking, liar, etc. Billy had a heart of gold and now we must watch a NEW face to me try and fit Billy’s shoes …. I’m disappointed, but thanks for giving Victoria a new hair style!! Wow she needed it! As for Adam character Michael Muhney – I disagree with how he was asked to leave and while I have not yet tried to follow him on Twitter, I agree he probably need time off to be with wife and child or children! I loved, admired, respected, enjoyed and some times disagreed with Adam, but he was smart, good looking, funny, sharp and just a son looking to be accepted!! He and Chelsea look good together, but Heather character and Adam, OMG – that Heather was beautiful, strong, smart, sexy for Adam and not stuck on herself … why did that Heather get sent of the set??? Daggg, well thanks to the Summer stupid character we, I can no longer get to see Michael Muhney as Adam Newman. I’m disappointed …. yes, my heart aches ….. so loved the patience, hopeful and changed Adam. Jack was smart to like Adam as well. And Adam did not hear a sound from hitting Delia. I just wish she never left the car ….. so sad. I pray Michael Muhney lands on both feet even bigger and better, or just where he want to be ……

Miss Adam, new Billy is just terrible…. Not believable and down right irritating, too bad. This is not to mention the beginning of this downhill slope….Delia’s passing… this past few months have been incredibly depressing. Tuning out…

I am bummed out that you got rid of Michael (Adam). He was a fabulous Actor ! I loved watching him!!! Y&R isnt as appealing to watch now. Then Billy left the role of Billy and we have this other Billy who is totally not right especially married to Victoria!!! Bummed!!!

Kim

I really liked Billy Miller in the role of Billy Abbot, and Michael in the role of Adam. Business is business, but viewership is also business. I’m not sure I’ll continue viewing Y&R. I’ve tried since the two characters have been replaced (Adam — TBD date of return). I have made the decision to focus my attention elsewhere. When Billy and Michael return to the show and there’s a shakeup in the executive office, I’ll consider viewing the show again. Many of my fellow viewers share my sentiment. I wonder where Y&R’s ratings are since the departure of those two great actors.

I liked Billy! Never liked Adam…….of course he wasn’t supposed to be likeable! For me he didn’t have any redeemable qualities.

I have been watching the Y& R since its 1st day. Some characters should not be replaced, they are the show. They could have never replaced Ms Chancellor, John Abbott, Victor Newman, Nikki Newman, Paul and on and on….Their business depends on viewer faithfulness to the shows…I liked the old Billy and Victoria’s fire and desire. Victoria can’t even act as well looking in the face of this little boy that took Billys place.

I agree. I have been watching for 35 years and replacing an actor, especially in a good storyline, makes you not want to watch anymore.

I have been watching Y&R since it first came on T.V. and, don’t get me wrong, I think Billy Miller is a fabulous actor and is more suited for Vicky but I was kinda excited to see the new Billy come back because I remember him way back when He played Billy and to me, he has not changed much at all. I was anxious to see him play on Y&R again and I think the main reason is that way back when he first played Billy, He looked like my Brother (now deceased) and it is nice to look forward to his acting again. As for Michael, I wish they woould bring him back because I was beginning to really like his role as he seemed to have changed for the better. Just my opinion.

The new Billy just doesn’t fit!!!! The new Billy really does looks like Victoria’s little brother. Who wants to see a brother and sister making out…. YUCK, not me!

Loretta

I don’t like the new Billy with his squinty eyes. The previous Billy was perfect for the part. And don’t replace Adam…..he was fabulous in the show. Doesn’t seem fair….the network wants us to watch their shows then they screw them up by changing the characters and want us to accept it!! I don’t think so. Just like they got rid of Steffy in the Bold and the Beautiful… Disappointed!

I loved Billy & Adam. What a BAD decision to let these guys go. I’m spending my soap opera time watching The Bold & Beautiful in place of the Y & R these days. Hopefully, these guys will show up on another show.

I must say that I cannot get into the story-line of Billy & Victoria now that Miller has left the show…It was hard enough adapting to a new Victoria but at least she has some spark in her attitude and brought a new aspect to the character…The “new” Billy seems bland and blase and rather immature in his portrayal…Also, I really want Phyllis to come back and SOON…She belongs with Jack, not that weird woman played by Cynthia Watros…Also, it is high time that it all came out about Summer being a Newman, not an Abbott, so she can resume her relationship with Kyle…The shows are getting boring and predictable and I am thinking about just not watching at all anymore…Please add some spice!!!!

ivan

why is muhney fired?

Meg
Meg

I read on a site that Muhney was fired for touching Summer’s breast. If this really happened I’m sorry to say Muhney is married with a few children and has a beautiful wife. I also read that Eric (Victor Newman) had something to do with getting him off the show. We all know any gossip sites aren’t always true. I want them to bring Muhney back. I don’t know if they can find a character that will show all his evil mean sides that he showed. it’s like them replacing Victor impossible to replace.

Meg
Meg

I was so sad to see the characters of Billy & Adam leaving the show. The two actors were my favorite on Y&R. They are two of the finest actors that Y&R had on their show.
The new Billy looks so much younger then the Billy who left the show. David Tom is a fine actor but just not in the role of Billy Abbot. He acts like a little kid.
As for the story line of Jack Abbot and his new love interest it’s boring. Phyllis has been gone long enough and the show has had plenty of time to replace her.
I’m sorry to say the show is just not what it used to be. Please get some excitement going on Y&R..

Anne
Anne

I totally agree with the above posts. I never liked David Tom the first time around and there is absolutely NO chemistry with Amelia aka Vickie. Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford were my absolute favorites on the show. So far as Adam? I was adjusting, but I still believe that the first actor to play him was better. I’m just SO disappointed with Y&R nowadays. I still watch it, but I have to change the channel frequently ie: Cane and Lily, Devon (the most boring character on the show!) Abby & Tyler…NO chemistry….The only new (or fairly new) characters I like are Chelsea and a regular Chloe, but I suppose since she’s been sent to Fairview we’ll never see her again. I’m just stating my opinion here, but I just don’t like the directions the show is taking. Maybe it’s a money thing, because firing or not re-signing fan favorites is just asking for a drop in the ratings and an ultimate demise of the show.

I find the show really boring and bad now. Losing Billy Miller and Michael Muhney was a big mistake. The show has no good story line now. Even victor is getting boring and he was the main stay for the show for a long time. Too bad but have no interest in the show anymore. Also losing the Phyllis character was bad too although I think that Michelle wanted to go but they should have paid her more and given her some incentives. Phyllis, Billy, and Adam that is what people tuned in for. Too bad, so sad. There is better tv out there for me.

Gail

Im so disappointed with the “new” Billy…his personality isnt strong enough and he has no chemistry with Victoria. And losing Michael Muhney is a huge mistake. I have to admit I didnt care for him when he first started in that role, but he grew into exactly who it seemed Adam should be. And his story line was finally going someplace positive with his new baby. What is going on over there? Phyllis, Chloe, and all — and if I have to see Sharon and Nic together one more sickening time. Are there no other women in this town for Nic that he has to keep going back to that milk toast Sharon?? I honestly liked Sharon better when she was going nuts running Newman, etc. Somebody please give her something else to do other than whine and end up in bed with Nic.! LOL! Billy wants to pursue other things while working on show – so let him — what is the big deal? Bring these people back — puuuuuleeeaaze!!!

GOODBYE! Y&R! I haven’t tuned in 3 weeks, and will tune in today to see my ADAM! Delia should not have died, as we had just lost our DUCHESS! Billy Miller you are a gem, and Michael Muhney truly in a class of your own with HONORS! I wish you both much success after this train wreck. Michael I hope you go on to do movies and primetime and when you get your EMMY say thank you to your family, Sharon Case and your friends on the show that supported you rather than talk crap after you left, and lastly to the fans that have supported you throughout and beyond. No mention of the losers of CBS, SONY, and JFP and exit stage left. I’ll miss seeing you on Y&R, but you were the last pill I swallow from that garbage of a show -which I have tolerated since that let VR go but no more! Best wishes to you both!

@Sharonda very well put after having non-stop turmoil dumped on MM I am glad it is over for him and need not to worry he will move on to better things. Going to give this show a long rest if I ever go back not just because of MM but the absolute juvenile and unprofessional behavior of the actors on the show. There is an old song out there that says you say it better when you say nothing at all!

Sadly enough, after watching since day one, I am also saying Fare the well. It was a great ride for the most part, but there have been way to many goodbyes this year. Jeanne of course was the biggest loss and I will always love her for having been so wonderful and so dedicated, may she rest in peace. Michelle Stafford has been a constant favorite of mine since she began. I realize she was ready to move on and I wish her all the best. Genoa city has not been the same though, since her departure. And now, Billy Miller has decided to move on too. I know that wherever he goes, he will have great success because he can offer no less. Michael Muhney. I must say, it took forever for me to like his character, Adam. Of course now, I can’t stand the thought of him leaving. He is a remarkable actor with a lot of character and talent to offer. I wish him continued success as well. Lauren and Michael are really all great together and I love to watch Tracey and Christian. I know there is a great up and coming story to be had for them but it’s time now for me to say goodbye and just read clips here and there. I feel that Y & R is heading downward and I may as well let go of it like all of those who have left before me. It will make it much easier when it does fade out. Thanks to all of those special people who made afternoons so exciting for sooo long. Best of luck to all of you!

I have loved Billy Miller as Billy. He even made the impossible happen…he made Victoria watchable!

Michael Muhney took his shit scripts and turned in golden performances. I can’t imagine anyone else being able to turn one of the most deplorable characters into one you want to root for. Adam did horrible things, but he always showed his vulnerable side and everyone wanted him to succeed…especially in bringing his father down!

Yes! You are so spot on about the character of Adam. He did take crappy scripts and make them into the stuff that keeps us watching. I am saddened that the writers took the route of killing him off. Not smart at all.

I’m pretty sure Adam has NOT been killed off. They plan to “retire” the character for a few months and bring him back with a new actor. He will have BIG shoes to fill if that’s the case.

It’s still mind boggling to me that my two favorite actors from Y&R over the last five years are leaving on the exact same day, in the same storyline, even in the same car – the performances of BM and MM over the last week have been nothing short of astounding – especially from MM, who knew he had just been fired, but still gave it his all – I have enjoyed watching these two marvelous actors immensely and am going to miss them, Y&R won’t be the same without them – best of luck to Billy Miller and Michael Muhney – and thanks for the memories!

Disagree. IMO the outstanding performances this week came from Rikaart and Hendrickson.

Jenny Brooks

I would agree with both of you and add Melissa Claire Egan to the list. The most painful part of all of this, is that when it is finally resolved (I still believe that someone else actually hit and killed Delia) it won’t be the same two actors playing the parts. So, it won’t have nearly the same effect. I wish them both the best. They will be missed!

jonboyelk

I’ve thought all along that another driver was responsible. Anyone would feel the impact of something striking their vehicle. The scarf could have already been lying on the pavement and attached to Adam’s vehicle. And there could be any number of explanations for the broken tail light. AND….isn’t it curious that the name above Adam’s on the list of matching plate number is “Kelly”? OK, so the last name is different, but who’s to say she doesn’t have a married or maiden name she goes by?

Mamajk

I too believe someone else hit and killed Delia. Remember they also show Nikki driving home that night too. I am so over, Victor, Sharon and Nick. The show has gone to the toilet, and I am tired of wasting my time. I have watched since the beginning. I read where Michael Muhney may go to another soap…….guess that is where I will go also. Good bye Y&R!!

Melissa

I KNOW that someone else killed Delia. When Paul brought the list of black SUV’s to Kevin I paused the DVR to read it, and guess who’s name was right above Adam Newman? Kelly!!! I don’t remember what her last name was though…Taylor maybe.

Milkica Bulic
Milkica Bulic

I agree and since they have gone so have I teh only way I will come back is if they come back especially MM and it is shown that it was Nikki who drove the car that killed Delia not Adam then we would see how they all react because Adam is so much better then tthe rest of them and MM is the reason Adam is who we all are barricking for.

Billy Miller waht can I say I just love him and Michael these two actors were why I watched the show but a sthey have gone so have I.

I have never liked David Tom as Billy and no one made me even like Adam like MM and Adam is who I am a fan of so all teh credit goes to the greta job of MM.

I have nothing against Tom David, er, reverse that. No, I always liked this actor.
David Tom Tom is not a negative factor for me. It’s just with the recent departures of the brilliant lights, not to mention being focused on Lily, Devane Abby and all the newbies studying their palm prints in the light with abject fascination, I have become bored. Adam and Billy were the magnets drawing viewers like me in. And I love Peter Bergman as Jack, but the writers aren’t giving him anything but chopped liver.

Melissa

I would give David Tom a chance (mostly b/c Heather Tom is so awesome and I want to support), but I can’t bring myself to do it. I need to stand in solidarity with all the other Michael Muhney fans. I just cannot believe they let an actor of that caliber go. His final scenees were rivoting. I loved when him and Billy were at the memorial site and he yelled, “THEN WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?” The way his voice delivered that was just wow.

Shirley Pfeiffer Kilgore

This is a VERY SAD DAY for many of us!! I have been watching Michael Muhneys final days and his acting ability is OUSTANDING!! He has outdone himself and brought every emotion to the top. It is is finest hour!! How difficult it must have been for him to that., but yet he stepped up to the plate and gave it his ALL!! THe man deservers an EMMY for his performance as does Billy Miller. I am disappointed that these two actors have been left go from Y&R what ever the reasons. I will no longer be watching Y&R after today. The story lines have gone down hill and with all the important actors leaving there is huge wholes now where the once were. I think that Jill Phellps should be let go in her job. She is the queen for killing soaps and she is taking my favorite soap right down to ground.

Joanie Joy

It is soap opera, but I stopped watching from I was told that Adam was fired. These two men are just two great actors. I like watching Adam and Billy. They are all good though, but I like seeing Adam. Billy, Adam and Phyllis have me anxious to know what next. I guess, I just want to see them all on there, I did not know that soap operas could really break hearts. It sure breaks mine. Sobbing right now.

Bean

I am totally in agreement… the Y and R has been hit hard with the losses of Kathryn, Phyllis…and now Billy and Adam… that’s the life of the show…they added humor and excitement… they all made their characters real… totally convincing… I have watched for many many years…and I am afraid these losses will be the beginning of the Y and R going down hill. What a shame… I will miss these dear friends… It truly breaks my heart.

Look out, Days of our Lives ratings will go through the roof when Kassie (formerly Blair of OLTL) arrives on its shores to play Ava. She has a huge fan base and they will follow her there. I have never seen Days, but having recently given up my thirty year GH habit, not to mention this is my last week of watching Y&R, I will be taking up Days just to see Kassie.
PS. I am sad to give up Y&R with Tristan Rogers about to hop on board but he may not be enough to save the show from terrible writing and mind numbingly dull and vacuous characters.

LOVED IT! DAYS is hilarious, reminds me of how Passions started with Little Timmy and the witch before it got stupid and he died.

I can’t believe they would get rid of Adam for a false accusation made by that twit Summer. Billy will not be the same played by Tom and his sister is on B & B. And when is STUPID VICTOR ever going to get what’s coming to him? Everyonee else on Y & R has suffered because of bad choices and VICTOR always gets away with doing whatever horrible thing he wants.

Harry

Donna, first, Adam and Summer are soap characters and therefore, Michael Muhney can not be fired for anything his character does within the parameters of fiction. Second, let’s focus on the drama we see on the television set, not the alleged drama behind the drama. There’s been far too much speculation and rumor mongering already. That said, Billy and Michael hit it out of the ball park today–brilliant actors, both of them.

Because I don’t know how many of us knowing that we were fired-would actually show up to work or either do a crappy job, and take stuff from the set home with us to say FU, and yet he was still doing his job.

Thank you Mr. Fairman for writing about the storyline , the characters and the 2 very talented actors who play them. I was concerned that recent behind the scenes drama would overshadow the drama we see unfolding on the screen.
I think both Muhney and Miller are giving gut wrenching, heart breaking performances. Both are so good that they transcend the not very good writing they have been afforded. The pacing is sluggish and going on too long–not the actors’ fault. Moreover, it has been made clear to viewers time and time again that Adam could not have been the one who hit Delia. As he repeated the story once again to Billy in which he includes the fact that he got out of the car, saw all was well, felt no impact while in his SUV, and finally, the little chip on his side light is not indicative of having hit a child. What I wish is that they had both Adam and Billy realize that Adam is in fact, innocent. I am sure that will come later with the Adam recast but the sense of vindication will be lost with another actor playing this part as we have watched Michael Muhney struggle with his conscience and with his soul in such an agonizing way. Many of us will not be watching so there will be no sense of vindication for the viewers either.
Also, wanted to point out that the goodbye scene between Adam and Jack were incredible touching and a case of art imitating live. Those two were not acting and one could tell it was Michael telling Peter that he’s a good man who has been a friend and the father that he never had. Both actors had real tears brimming in their eyes–a very touching scene.
In short Michael Muhney’s swan song was pitch perfect as was Billy Miller’s. They will be missed.

Michael Muhney loved the fans. He was one of the most gracious people I’ve ever met at a public function. He loved Y&R. What a loss for the show, but more importantly, what a loss for the audience.

He made Adam Newman a force on the show. I wish him all the best. He’ll be greatly missed.

This is a dark day for Y&R. Billy Miller should have been resigned, but now he’s leaving. Sorry, but David Tom is weak. What a mistake.

Michael Muhney created Adam Newman into one of the best characters on the show based on his own acting abilities. He was thrown horrible storylines, yet he overcame them and connected with the viewers. What else explains the outcry over his firing?

He could have stayed if the situation had been handled properly, but that’s a reflection on the producer and Sony. What a mistake. Muhney was the show’s future.

I’m so disgusted that I’ll be tuning out for good this afternoon. Good luck to both of these wonderful actors.

Jimmy

I agree, 100%. I don’t fault Miller for leaving on his own accord but the character of Billy will not be the same with David Tom, and the recast is happening so soon! It’s not as though Billy will be off screen for a few months, it will only be a few days and then we’ll have a new Billy. Terrible, just terrible.

As for Muhney, he is easily one of the top actors in the entire genre; not just the show, but all of daytime. Adam is one of my favourite characters on Y&R and there is no other actor who can do what Michael Muhney has done with Adam, he’s a phenomenal actor and he will go far. As for the storylines, you’re spot on; some have been horrible, like Melanie (remember her?) claiming Adam raped her… that was horrific and ridiculous on all accounts.

The situation between him and Hunter King, or should I say the unproven allegations towards him, was handled completely wrong. The whole cast got involved and CBS, Sony and JFP did nothing to correct the issue. Shame on them. Muhney and the fans deserve so much better.

Y&R has been so dark lately with Katherine’s death and now Delia’s, it’s turning into General Hospital before Frank and Ron took over. All I can hope is that by New Years 2015, I won’t be as disappointed as I am with the show now.

Joni

Does anyone remember after J. Cooper passed away, when they were doing their tributes? There were several male actors on the show, that claimed that J. Cooper, crabbed them, and made comments. She was never fired. So why was M.M???
M.M. has done a tremendous job acting, and deserves to go on, to bigger and better things!

FAS

I love the character of Adam. Truly one of the best daytime or otherwise actors out there. The fact remains that he was accused of an unacceptable offense against a woman/girl. It seems to me that no one wants to take this seriously, sweeping it under the carpet. It is the 21st Century, people….men cannot get away with what was once “okay” …..that is, treat a woman less that a person and more like a sexual object.. Where is the respect? I do not know what happened, but if there is a scintilla of truth here, then Michael M. should suffer the consequences, no matter what. He’ll be lucky if no criminal charges will be brought against him. So, what is the consensus here? That Hunter is lying? Maybe, but doubtful….and I’m sure others heard him, otherwise such drastic steps would not have been taken.
No one speaks up…oh, poor Michael. Just because he’s a good actor does not give him license to disrespect women. Hunter is naturally well-endowed…not her fault…what is she to do? I know the feeling, believe me…..it is humiliating and degrading!!!! The same could be said about a well-endowed man. No respectable woman would dare make such a comment. She would be considered a-you-know-what, but a man would be slapped on the back and cheered. Is this not still living with the double standard?
If he did it, why should he be exempt from the backlash? I hope he is innocent , I really do….only time will tell.

Oh, Sammie…I AGREE!!!!! Billy Miller was the BEST Billy Abbott that Y&R ever had!!!!! BM made the role his own!!!!! Same thing with Michael Muhney as Adam Newman. Sammie, I didn’t care for David Tom as Billy Abbott the first time around. And, I am not too enthused about DT coming back to Y&R for a second time. No. I mean…the sound of DT’s voice ALONE annoys me. As for BOTH CBS and Sony, they have proven (more and more) that they don’t give a damn at all about any of us longtime soap fans. The only thing that CBS and Sony care about is letting that VERY DREADFUL Jill Farren Phelps and her untalented, unwatchable and annoying friends run amok on the Y&R set. It just keeps getting worser and worser!!!!!! Very sad.

Will be interesting to see if these two departures affect the ratings. Many high profile actors (ie Shemar Moore) have left this show in the past and it has remained a ratings winner.

Sharonda

Shemar can’t act- IMO, and he’s succeeding doing action type roles where the plot drives the stories not the acting-drama doesn’t suit him.

Sharonda…you make a very good point. I agree. Shemar Moore’s time on Y&R has come and gone. And, besides, SM being on Criminal Minds is a PERFECT FIT for him. Yep.

Whether he can act or not was not the point I was making. He was a fan favorite, as were Miller and Muhney. Jaime Lyn Bauer was a fan favorite, David Hasselhoff was a fan favorite…..the ex-YnR list is a long one, and the show continues to go on…..

If that is the case, he was right all along about the Emmy winners are chosen based on popularity among the voters. I didn’t know this was the Soap Opera Digest awards.

I’m really enjoying Y&R these last weeks. I always do but the Delia storyline has been very well done. I will really miss Billy Miller! He has played this role to the hilt. I wish him much success. Michael Muhney USED to be one on my favorite actors. Unfortunately, his fanatical fans have not done him any favors. I also wish him well.
Looking forward to seeing what David Tom can do with the Billy Abbott character. Also anxious to see our new Adam Newman in a few months.

I love Y&R..I have been watching this show faithfully since it’s debut in 1973..The writing has been superb, the story lines riveting, but I have to say the Dehlia story line was most disturbing. Not since Cassie’s death has a story bothered me so much. And I have to say that Dehlia’s death tore me to shreds. No parent should ever have to face such a tragedy. With that being said, the two characters of Billy & Adam were each tormented by her death. I absolutely hate to see it all end this way. Two fine actors leaving at the same time. They were two of the most complex and fascinating characters on the show. Absolutely nothing mindless about them. And I think what saddens me most is that I think and I believe that a truth will eventually surface that Adam was not the hit and run driver after all. If that is indeed the case, what a shame for the people they leave behind. And what a loss for their fans!!!! I wish both actors luck and hope we, the fans, see them in shows worthy of them.

Had

Amen!

I will miss these two actors so much. I hated Adam until Michael took the role. His acting so well that I knew right from wrong yet he found a way to endear him. Now I will miss both these amazing actors!! Good luck guys! Bad move Y&R!!!

I am very disappointed at Y & R letting Michael Muhney and Billy Miller leave ….two of the best actors which they proved in their performances this week! I don’t understand why Y &R has done this….I know Billy left of his own choice but believe if Y & R had offered him a good deal, he would have stayed. I’m thinking about saying “farewell” to Y & R and will wait to see where these fine actors re-appear and will watch those shows!!!! I don’t believe Tom can replace Billy Miller ….and have no idea who will return as Adam in about 6 months….and really don’t care! Would like to hear your thoughts on this situation, Michael, do you believe Y & R will still be one of the top soaps with these fantastic actors gone???? Thanks for giving us fans a place to vent !!!!!

Mary SF

I didn’t care for the way they demonized Adam for what was an accident, they kept saying he killed her, like he had done it on purpose, and some of the lines were a bid over the top and unnecessary, as if the writers were getting their digs in on MM through his character Adam.

But aside from that I found the scenes today, with both Billy and Adam among the best in the show’s recent history. Unfortunately because of all the behind scene drama and rumors I doubt MM will ever win an Emmy for those performances. Yet in the hearts of his fan, he proved his point by acting his butt off while knowing it was his swan song. He could have phoned it in and ruin the scenes of the confrontation to get back at them for firing him, but he no, he gave his Adam a fitting goodbye performance.

I guess what is sad about this is that once they recast Adam they will redeemed the character and most likely find out it wasn’t really his car that hit Delia— that is was Kelly or someone else, like a Mason that did it.

Of course they were just as soap columnists are attacking him he is guilty as far as they are concerned. just remember this B/S started in June of 2013. Just a bunch of vultures picking the bones! He was such a threat we waited 6 months before he was shown the door.

Ok after watching this week’s episodes boy am I glad this is over! I felt like I was getting a root canal three days of non stop same dialogue. We get it as Billy says thru grinding teeth tell me how she died and clueless Adam well Geeze Wally all I saw was a dog. This really is what we pass off as the #1 soap right? Personally I wanted to jump thru the TV and shoot both of them. Gosh love all of you guys that are sticking with this because I for one have had enough and Harry thanks for the compliment I will tell you my husband’s best friend calls me the most sarcastic bitch on the planet! And I agree! Peace out! You guys might need to order some heavy drugs if you consider watching this and calling it even remotely entertainment!

I cannot believe both of the best actors are no longer on the show. I am so sorry, but I do not feel anyone could replace either character. I won’t be watching Y&R after today. The story lines have become boring in the last year. And the turn over of characters has been truly awful. I feel you should have worked something out with Michael (if it is true what is was accused of). I do not feel Michael/Adam can be replaced.I wish Billy and Michael the very best and hope to see them again soon! Also the ending today was terrible.. Today was my last day to watch The Y&R.. Will never be the same with the two best actors gone…

I wont be around when nu-Adam turns up to find out he didnt really kill Delia.

With the passing of Jeane Cooper and losing Michelle Stafford, Muhney and Miller one after the other is something this show will take years to recover from. If it recovers at all.

When I get home I will be removing Y&R from my DVR and adding Days of Our Lives. With Eileen Davidson set to return and Kassie DePaiva joining the cast im looking forward to getting to know the show better.

Criminal that these two are gone and the show is stuck with the likes of Steve Farren Burton, Eric Braeden, and Daniel Goddard. Y&R is beyond dumb.

I just removed Y&R from my DVR after many years. Sad day! Good Luck BM and MM. The show can now be cancelled to ensure JFP is in an unemployment line where she deserves to be. I refuse to tune in due to habit. DOOL here I come and look forward to the many new cast additions joining your show. Will not be long until GH becomes the #1 watched soap on network television. SAD!

I just started watching this about a month ago, and now I will be way confused. The characters are all new to me, and hopefully the new Billy Abbot will be someone that I can remember. HAHA, after Soapnet went off the air and the re runs of AMC and OLTL can’t be seen anymore, I had to pick some new Soap to watch. I knew that Steve Burton had gone to another soap, and once I found him in Y&R decided to watch. I sure wish there were some synopsis to know some of the story line, it is very hard to start so cold. Anyone with a synopsis?

Mary SF

Joan– this website has a section off on the side of any page call Michael’s Links– click on Soap Central. Soap Central has an excellent history section for each soap. When you get there click on the Y&R tab, and then once in the Y&R page, go to the ABOUT Y&R section— there you can find recaps, history, character history, etc. It is good resource for those just beginning to watch a new soap. I used it to catch up on GH when I started watching last year.

The acting of these two men – Billy M. & Michael M. – has been nothing less than incredible — over the years — and especially since the Delia thing – which should have never happened. Both men deserve an Emmy for their recent work – even though if nominated, they would be competing against each other for Best Actor. Such nuance, such heart, such power! Unfortunately, so many of the other Y&R story lines just don’t come close to the magic and complexity of Billy and Adam’s “dance of death.” It is hard to imagine continuing to watch Y&R, knowing the less-than-transparent circumstances under which Michael was fired. And who wants “Billy” when that character’s not played by Billy Miller. I hope to see both men find other venues in which to display their talent. In all probability, I will not watch Y&R as I’ve done — almost every day for the past five or so years, since Michael came on board as Adam. He was by far my favorite character, with Billy a close second.

Not happy at all with the replacement and I am glad I wasn’t a fan for more than a year or else I wouldn’t be able to quit so easily. Ever since I heard about the departure I just watched Millers scenes and skipped the rest. I thought miller was the best in the whole show and he was the reason I stayed to watch the show. Now I find every other story line predictable and I only have watched one year. I will stop watching today as it won’t be the same and will watch wherever Miller goes. He is talented and shouldn’t have trouble going primetime please no more soap operas I can’t take anymore. I hope YR luck since they will need it.

I have watched faithfully since 1973. Michael Muhney truly made Adam come to life for us all.

I feel the same way! I have been watching Y & R for 30 years and after Feb 1, 2014 I will NO longer watch. David Thom Poor choice to replace Billy Miller. Michale Muhney will be sadly missed. The character who played Delia wanted to leave so why didn’t they just cast the little girl instead of killing her off- another bad choice. In closing, my opinion- LOVED LOVED Adam *& Chelsea together. Victoria and Billy well I can get used to them not being together- will miss BIlly Miller though. Stitch and Victoria could be a great couple. I think Kelly killed Delia. This Carmine Storyline is getting very boring. I think that Devon and Hilary make a great couple. Avery and Dylan- getting used to – liked her better with Nick. Sharon & Dylan? Like Abby and Tyler together. Now that Ian Ward is in Genoa City – look out Summer and I think that Ian Ward may have Jill held captive? Hmmm maybe a NEW RIVAL for Victor- IAN WARD- Just some thoughts – but oh well who knows cause I don’t really WANT to watch anymore NOW that my two FAV actors are gone.

Good Luck Billy Miller and Michael Muhney you are BOTH awesome actors and any other tv /daytime show that has the opportunity to cast either of YOU WILL be very LUCKY!! LOVE to see Micheal Muhney (Adam) come to Days of our lives!!!! Love interest for HOPE now that Bo is gone!!!

Sharonda

I haven’t watched either, nor do I read re-caps. But if you need to wean yourself off-that is the way to do it and youtube. But watching Days is much better, and watching reruns of Life Goes On and Sisters is always better than Y&R!

The storyline of a child dying is always heartbreaking but this one has left me COLD! How in the world is it even remotely conceivable for this lame excuse storyline to too have been written just to blame Adam Newman. this was a tragic accident at worst Adam panicked after hearing almost everyone in town from the local police to the local hometown media demanding a lynching for the person who unfortunately ran into a small child at NIGHT on a deserted stretch of a hillside road in a SUV a vehicle that if anyone were driving this vehicle under similar circumstances would more then likely not even notice they hit someone of that height and size under those driving conditions. My problem with Y&R is not only is it a dull slowly paced drama. it has NO creative storylines. The story has brought in over the past several years actors Michael Muhney and Billy Miller and young actors with promise like Max Ehrich and that to be fair has been a plus for the long running daytime drama but aside from the acting the show is just well DULL and the current producers of the show they manage to consistently do something to drive viewers away from Y&R. it’s just another sad day for fans of this daytime drama.

Sharonda

IKR why couldn’t Kevin or Victoria run over Delia? That would have been better as far as plots go. Then I could see why- in his mind- it made sense for him to cheat on Vicki with Kelly.

i wont EVER watch Y&R becuase Billy M. & Michael M. are no longer on the show, they were the best actors on the show. Now the show is going to be all about Victor and Nikki, like really how much more of her crying and his bullding can we watch. I think they should have gotten ride of them, not those two great actors.

Penny

I absolutely love Billy Miller. I am going to miss him so much. I am thrilled to see him in prime time shows. It doesn’t matter the show, if he’s on, I watch. I am a Young and Restless fan, so I probably will not watch him on another soap, but if he’s on prime-time, I will watch. Although, Tom has played Billy before, it will not be the same.

I can’t imagine anyone else paying Adam, other than Michael. I’m hoping whomever replaces him can do as a great job as Michael. I am so hoping the writers of Y&R redeem Adam. I am hoping the tip they got about Adam’s hit and run, proves to be the person who actually hit Delia. Just a sad story line.

Best wishes to Billy and Michael. They will greatly be missed. The Y&R will not be the same without them.

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.
