Jeanne Cooper and her iconic character Katherine Chancellor will be remembered in upcoming episodes of The Young and the Restless when Genoa City has a ceremony for Mrs C.  at Chancellor Park for the one year anniversary of her death!

According to TV Guide, and arriving back on the scene for the episodes to air on August 26th and 27th, will be Tricia Cast (Nina) and actor Michael Fairman (Murphy)!

And finally, with all of that will come some resolution to the Music Box Mystery that Katherine sent Jill (Jess Walton) on over a year ago that has dragged out!

As previewed to us in this video interview below with Jess Walton at the recent Creative Arts Emmys Red Carpet, the Daytime Emmy winner shared with us  that the mystery would be revealed in short order, so this should be when it happens!

One other major plotpoint has that Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott), who is teetering on the brink of dipping into the sauce once again, will apparently fall off the wagon at the same time of Katherine’s remembrance ceremony!  It’s all to much for the gal to take!

So, looking forward to the Music Box Mystery being resolved?  The return of Nina and Murphy and a boozin’ Nikki? And the series remembering Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper)?   Let us know your thoughts below!

Of all the actors gone from the show, its the one and only Jeanne Cooper i miss the most…maybe the music box leads to an unknown sister or brother of Katherine…i might return and watch for the memorial!!!

Love Murphy. They should pair him and Ester! I really dont care about Nina. They need to find someone new in Genoa City who is older and wiser to take Mrs. C’s place. Its not Jill! Her and Colin suck! I say bring in Jeanne Cooper’s real son and have him play a long lost son who is an SOB who throws Jill out on her A.. and people keep mistaking him for Father Todd. This isnt Father Todd. This new Chancelor guy is a hell raiser!

Timm, I could not disagree with you more. Jill and Colin are the best thing going on Y&R. Yes, the writing is not up to par and these two are worthy of better storylines.
However, the actors have risen about the mediocre, boring writing–they are worth watching.
I am, however, disappointed with the writing being afforded to Tristan Rogers–he is quite a gem and deserves so much better.

Yes Harry your right, sorry, its not the actors, they are legendary, its the writing. Whats new!

I agree; I love Jill and Colin. And I agree with their tepid dialogue. If it doesn’t pick up we’ll lose Tristen again.

I always thought that tracy would be the perfect person to take Katherine’s place as the go to person for advice and love.

Don’t really want to see Nikki hitting the bottle yet again for an extended period of time. Hope it’s not dragged out. Don’t care for this character at all.

Yeah, the character has been there and done that, sooooooo many times before! Let Nikki handle her problems without the assistance of booze or everyone coming to her rescue.

I suspect the music box story line was the brain child of Josh Griffith and went he left, the new writers had no idea what he had planned to do with it, so they have been scrambling ever since to figure a way to tie this thread to the new thread they started — and the result was this mishmash of a story as if the writers were making it up as they went along, changing their mind and starting over. And I suspect it felt that way because that is exactly what they were doing– but at least they… Read more »

There has to be a way to give Murphy and Nina air time and story. Murphy, tho now wealthy presumably, could work somewhere that keeps him engaged in the lives of Katherine’s intimates. Nina is a writer and could-be media person. I would like to see her in place, too. She was Christine’s best friend once upon a time. And friendly with Paul, right? If there is no front-burner story, then make these characters supporting roles, part of the daily lives of the leads.

I’m not really interested in seeing Nikki hit the bottle again either.
I don’t see it as a necessary plot device.
I am looking forward to a Mrs. C memorial tho.

Good Lord, this show has just collapsed since Ms. Cooper passed away. Y&R was a show that I never missed, now I might watch it twice a month. The stories go at such a slow pace that I know I’m not missing anything at all. Talk about boring. These writers and producers are running this show into the ground. Gee, Nikki gets drunk again? How many times have we seen that? UGH.

So excited for the Kay remembrance episodes, too!

How much do you love Y&R!?!

Melody Thomas Scott plays an incoherent drunk better than anyone!!! Well…her and Linda Gray as Sue Ellen!! But I hope if the show does have Nikki bangin’ the booze back, I hope they remember that she has MS now…and how alcohol can affect that condition. The show seems to have had no real reason for giving Nikki MS and it hasn’t been prominent in story so far. It could be a very hard hitting true to live story about diseases and alcoholism.

Tricia Cast is so wonderful as Nina. Too bad they cannot find story that keeps her on board and dump some of the boring stories/actors.

I might DVR the memorial episode…first one I will have watched in 8 months. IMO, the ONLY decent thing that has aired since JFP took over was the Jeanne Cooper tribute show. Everything else has flowed downhill and not worth watching.

Michael, I’ve been dying to ask you this question. Are you related to Murphy? Michael Fairman? Just curious.

I think “mystery” is generous in regards to that music box mess but here’s hoping the resolution is more believable than a terminally ill woman in her 80’s climbing a ladder to hide a necklace in a chandelier. Based on Colin’s reaction when he saw the photo of Rachel Berenson I thought she might be his mother and he was Kay’s half-brother as a result of Rachel’s affair with Kay’s father but long term plotting doesn’t seem to be this show’s strong point these days. The show needs to bring Tricia Cast back full time and drop Austin, Summer, Avery,… Read more »

I love Nina, Please bring back Tricia Cast Full time on The Young and The Restless. Get rid of Christine slash Cricket, I hope Phyllis squashes Cricket like a bug. LOL. I WANT Murphy to romance Jill or ESTHER. I want Elizabeth Hubbard to be Katherines, long lost sister. I loved Elizabeth as Lucinda Walsh on as The World Turns. She is a wonderful actress, imagine Jess Walton and Elizabeth Hubbard in scenes, they would kick ass. Love them both.

Ricardo…Y-E-S Y-E-S Y-E-S!!!!! Dude…I am TOTALLY ONBOARD with you on this!!!!! Nina is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Y&R character…EVER…HOLLA!!!!! I wish that Nina (and her VERY FABULOUS portrayer Tricia Cast) would come back to Y&R FOR GOOD (and not just for a short-term visit or whatever)!!!!! Also…that’s funny…Murphy romancing either Jill or Esther??? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Or…how about a (get this) Esther/Murphy/Jill love triangle??? Can you imagine Esther and Jill fighting over Murphy??? Poor Murphy…LOL!!!!! By the way, more and more, Colin is WORKING MY NERVES…BLAH!!!!! Idiot. Also…I think that is a WONDERFULLY INTERESTING IDEA…the possibility of Elizabeth Hubbard joining the Y&R cast.… Read more »

I’m a huge Nina fan and really wish that the writers could find a better way to use her than has been done over the past few years. Besides Jack and Ashley Abbott, I’ve always thought Nina was one of the most interesting characters. She started out as young scheming girl from the wrong side of the tracks who ultimately grew into a very devoted mother who still has enough of her “street ways” to call a spade a spade when needed. Besides Brock and Jill, Nina really is the only character with a true connection to Kay. She would… Read more »

It will be nice to see Nina and Murphy again but the music box storyline is not and never has been the slightest bit interesting, I couldn’t care less about it, and sadly we have two of the most talented actors on the show (Jess and Tristen) in this stupid boring storyline.

It would appear on the surface that Nikki, lost her balance, and her way without her loving dear friend, mother, supporter, and Victor cannot fill the void for his wife however , having her once again return to drinking,is clearly not in the vest interest of creative writing and story telling. enough of this please, I never understood the mystery box, will someone please explain it in derail. First there was the mystery woman during the war, and the picture that resembled Mrs. c,and the jewelry the necklace, etc……I love Murphy, and Nina can do no wrong in my book….I… Read more »

Carlos…YES YES YES!!!!! Murphy is A-W-E-S-O-M-E!!!!! And…to me, Nina will N-E-V-E-R do anything wrong in my book…AT ALL!!!!! Most of all, I TOTALLY AGREE with you about that self-righteous and bland-filled Christine…B-L-A-H!!!!!! I wish that Paul would see the E-R-R-O-R of his ways…as in…D-I-V-O-R-C-I-N-G that whiny Christine…and (from there) then get back together with Nina. To me, Paul was WAY MORE INTERESTING AND INTRIGUING when he was with Nina!!!!! With Christine…N-O W-A-Y, man!!!!! The Bottom Line (at least for me): TEAM NINA!!!!!!

Take care, Carlos. A-C-E-S!!!!!!!

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
