While fans of The Young and the Restless mourn the loss of daytime drama’s beloved Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters), the series and CBS Daytime announced Thursday evening that although there will be a tribute to St. John, who passed away on Sunday, at the end of tomorrow’s episode, that it is only the beginning and that viewers should stay tuned.

In a statement, the number one daytime drama expressed; “The Young and the Restless will forever value the legacy of Kristoff St. John in his portrayal of Neil Winters.  Beginning in late April, Y&R will feature a storyline that pays tribute to both Kristoff and his character.”

Over the days since St. John’s tragic death, fans of the series have wondered what the show planned to do with the character since St. John had played the character for 27 years.   Looks like we will all find out together this spring, as the writing team pens a story that honors Neil Winters and his two-time Daytime Emmy-winning portrayer.

So, glad to hear that Y&R is planning a storyline  to pay their respects to Neil Winters and Kristoff ?

Share your thoughts via the comment section below, and make sure to catch The Young and the Restless on Friday (12:30-1:30 PM, ET and 11:30 AM-12:30 PM, PT).

The actor and the character deserves a great memorial, like the one they did for Jeanne Cooper and Katherine in 2013.

A final scene with Victoria Rowell welcoming Neil in heaven, like the one Cady McClain did when James Mitchell died, would be a perfect ending.

I agree with you Linda. I have been a fan since the mid eighties and Neil and Drucilla have always been my favorite couple. I was so shocked and saddened when I heard the news. He was such a terrific actor. When I saw the “tribute” after Friday’s episode, I thought this is it. I hope the one they give him in April is more deserving to his role and his dedication to the show.

Am glad to see and to hear all this appreciation of Kristoff St. John. It is so well deserved and appropriate. The New York Times this week featured two articles, including an appreciation piece, I thought were spot on. As for Neil Winters, I am eager to see what happens. I do want the character to continue as the Neil is vital for Lily, Devon, and without Dru, Olivia, and Malcolm on canvas, provides a link to the past that is so necessary. He is another ex-wife and son out there too. Although I could see the passing of Neil… Read more »

Thank you for noting The New York Times Appraisal of Mr. St. John. Yes, indeed, it was “spot-on.”

Hopefully Olivia and Malcolm will turn up . Along with Dru, they re time with Neil was classic Winters era. Without them any tribute wont feel the same. Hoping Devon and Anna can carry the Winters torch. Not sure about Nate. Hoping Lily returns aswell fulltime

I have read several negative comments about the tribute at the end of Friday’s show. “Y&R” honored Kristoff at the end of Wednesday’s show and then the two-minute tribute today. First, it is tough for the show – it’s actors, writers, crew and audience – to lose someone so beloved. But these shows are taped months in advance and it is difficult to take a pre-taped show and turn it into a hour-long tribute within a week. I am sure it is still very raw for the actors to think his physical presence will not be there on a daily… Read more »

I’m in shock because I’ve been loyal fan of YR since 1973 but with Mal Young at helm I quit watching about 6 months ago. I’m reeling from this news, rest in peace. CBS & Sony needs to do the right thing and give the fans what we all been clamoring for return of Drucilla and in tow a child son of Neil.

Nice tribute to Kristoff Friday. Have been watching since day one. He was one of the greats.

The tribute at the end of yesterday’s show was very disappointing, so I am glad to hear there will be more to come. Been watching Y&R since day 1 and St. John was a terrific addition to the show, so sorry he is gone, may he RIP.
I do hope he will not be replaced as he cannot.

Kelly Clarkson Says Becoming a Talk Show Host Was ‘The Dream I Never Knew I Had’ & Was ‘Shocked’ By Allegations Against EX-NBC Ent. Chair Paul Telegdy

Preparing for her new season of her successful talk show, The Kelly Clarkson Show, the host and singer opened up on a myriad of subjects ahead of its September 21st premiere with the Los Angeles Times.

Clarkson shared that she had a kind of covert journey to discovering she could be a talk show host, plus the difficulties everyone had endured during the pandemic expressing: “I will be completely honest, and I have been since the beginning: I did not want this job.  I say that it’s the dream I didn’t know I had because I talk to so many people, and not just celebrities. I’ve talked to the people that have been hit hardest in all of this — financially, emotionally, mentally … it’s really the everyday people on this show that have just lifted my spirits when I’ve been feeling like, ‘Oh my God, nothing else could possibly go wrong at this point, like, send in the locusts.’”

The “Voice” coach and Grammy and Daytime Emmy winner also shared her shock when it came to light the accusations in the work place against former NBC Entertainment President, Paul Teledgy.   He was instrumental in bringing Clarkson’s show to air, as well as bringing her to The Voice.

Kelly shared she was “more shocked than anyone” by reports of Telegdy’s behavior.   She did not address straight on the allegations against Ellen DeGeneres and her talk show, but did say that what has been opened up about culture in the workplace reaffirmed a lesson she first learned at church camps and on student council as a child, saying that as a leader you remind yourself, “How you act is how all those beneath you are going to feel like they’re allowed to act.”

She added, “Accountability is so important.  Everybody messes up. Everybody’s allowed to mess up. We are imperfect; that’s OK. But it’s not OK to pretend it’s not happening. … I’m the first one in the room to go, ‘Was that me? Did I do it?’ Or, ‘How can I fix it?’”

Clarkson also noted when asked that she will not just completely open up about her recent divorce to Brandon Blackstock, because of all the children involved, but may talk about some parts of it, if and when it comes up naturally on her show.  She is currently pouring her feelings on the matter into her  music while writing news songs

When The Kelly Clarkson Show debuts its new season amid the coronavirus pandemic, viewwers can look for a hybrid format, with live and virtual interviews with guests — complying with various safety protocols — as well as a virtual audience.  Kellyokes will remain the staple of the show and those are staying put as part of the show.

So, are you looking forward to the new season of daytime TV’s The Kelly Clarkson Show? Comment below.
