It would be nice if fans outside the USA could view these cbs videos

Y&R has not been my number one soap for the past 30 years. I think people have continued to watch during the down times out of habit, not because it was must-see TV.

It most definitely has been mine since the first episode in ‘73. The number of viewers over the years speaks volumes when compared to the other two remaining soaps.

Sadly, Momo, I’m inclined to agree. Lately, I barely recognize my beloved show. Unsavory new characters, stories dragged on for MONTHS on end, major legacy characters and actors being let go. Nikki on another bender? Jack in another loser romance? Obnoxious Fenmore again pursuing Kyle’s girlfriend? Been there too many times. It all adds up (or down) to boredom and a lot of disappointment. Not to mention fast-forwarding.

Kinda a slap in the face! The reason the show has been #1 for that long is because of the actors who have been there for most of that time! Viewers keep tuning in invested in the characters and the actors portraying them that we care about 5 days a week! The Abbots, the Newmans, Neil,Lauren and Michael, Paul and Christine, Jill, Sharon, Phyliss, the absent and beloved Adam,Nina, Drucilla, Olivia,Mac,Hillary,Avery, Gloria…
Not these newbies who have replaced them and have been on for 5 min. No disrespect to them but respect should be given when its due!

My grandmother, her two sisters and countless cousins have been watching Y&R since its inception ( 1972?)…… I love my Y&R—have watched for eighteen years and my loyalty has never faltered, regardless of its “transgressions”, LOL. I do complain about some storylines—-a few, these days, that drive me up the wall in their stupidity….yet, I would never turn away. Whoever writes for Devon needs to think before putting ink to paper, as it were. Abby said something about a 24-hour open-house-type of restaurant where students may ‘hang’. I’m sure we all remember our High School and College days. Did any… Read more »

Celia, Kerry reminds me of what the Statue of Liberty would be like if it were made of ice, through and through. Poor Jack. I bet even Patty Williams is starting to look good right about now.

Are we going down the Nikki-and-the-“bottle” memory lane again? How many times can someone fall, pick herself up and repeat it a million times for years? Literally!! I guess Nikki needs to remain relevant? She needs some of the focus on herself? Yet, there has been so much focus on d’Artagnan and the Three Musketeers; how much more camera time does she need? The idea of showing how alcohol affects a compulsive drinker/alcoholic, has already been told, tenfold!! We know; we get it!! We’re not dumb!! It is old and over-used. Personally, I am not interested in seeing Nikki fall… Read more »

Celia — Nausea Alert! I just returned from my semi-annual doctor visit. Everything was okay… until I came home to today’s episode of Y&R. Mia in a navy-blue seductress ensemble (possibly a camisole… I couldn’t bear to look too closely) trying to seduce Deputy Dawg again. Cec, I nearly got back in the car and went back to the doctor. What are these writers thinking? I don’t even want to see characters I LIKE humiliating themselves, let alone this virago. Can’t they find a different role for Mia, possibly another sequel to “Swamp Thing”?

Celia

LOL, Soaphound….seriously, had the seductress been anyone else but Mia, and Rey, Nick?—-well, then….different story!! I don’t know what that mish-mash was. I wear shorts and tanks to bed. I will never understand why women wear that garb ….you know?? And, here I thought I was the only one who loved to use the word “virago”….we must have read the same books!! She reminds me of Martha ( Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf)…. Hmmmmm…..that could also apply to Carly Corinthos. Did I misunderstand, or did Mia say she was going back to Miami? If so, one down…how many more to… Read more »

You know, Celia, I learned that word in eighth grade English… I wonder if they still teach vocabulary or if, like cursive, it’s gone the way of the Dodo bird. There’s a line of fiction now under the moniker Virago Modern Classics that features women authors and has rescued many old books from obscurity. I love them! And I hosted a book club on WHO’S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? because it’s one of my favorite works of fiction.. love the movie, too! But I’ll take Martha over Mia anyday.. at least SHE had a sense of humor.

Hello, Soaphound, You sound like moi….while my sisters were interested in what any youth should be, I read…..my grandmother has a stash of all the classics; and so many Historical Romances, which my husband calls by a name I cannot repeat!! Still read them…Kathleen E Woodiwiss is my favorite!! Got to love that Martha. Sometimes I wish I were more like her!! The Shrew!! I was ready to barf ….”Mia At The Ball”– a walking contradiction. Mamma mia!! Pardon the pun. LOL…. Have you noticed how TPTB are somehow divesting the ‘fatale’ out of this ‘femme’, and dressing her in… Read more »

Good grief, Soaphound….I posted an emogi of a blonde, representing myself….And, what I end up with is the Venus symbol of female gender.LOL.
Oh, I love “Swamp Thing”, starring Adrienne Barbeau….I wasn’t watching at the time, but she was part of the GH cast, at one point, I believe…..
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, my friend.❤️+ a XMAS tree emoji ( I’m afraid to press on it….who knows what it will show up as.LOL).

I guess you just do not understand the concept behind Nikki drinking again..The point of it is to show how easy it is for an addict to fall off the wagon when they have a stresser in their life..Nikki hiding the fact that she possibly killed JT is a big stresser..Get it? Got it? GOOD!

I, very much, am aware that an alcoholic goes through an endless journey for a lifetime….I am just tired of the same plot….

Diane, I think most of us understand how an addict of any kind can succumb to the thing they are addicted to. As far as alcohol goes, a person sees it, smells it in just about any room, anywhere they go.But, hon, there are addicts, especially drunks on all four soaps, and their stressers are always utilized to the hilt.I’ve often wondered how many, or if any of the actors are alcoholics. It would really be stressful to be involved in a SL of that sort. I degressed , sorry, I just wanted to say that the soaps are meant… Read more »

Thank you, Violet….glad you understand what most of us try to express when it comes to these revolving doors of the same themes, on all the remaining soaps…. Going ’round ‘n ’round.
To be honest, I truly feel that when one suffers from an addiction, such as alcohol, these kinds of repetitive ‘runs’ on the soaps, may affect the ‘user’ in a negative manner. ….the ‘afflicted’ may feel it is useless to help himself/herself if he/she will capitulate time and again down to that dark place. What would be the point?! I hope my comment makes some sense.

Well said, Violet. No one is minimizing addictions or the damage they do. But when they use it as a plot crutch, it does a disservice to the addicts so valiantly fighting their disease. Nikki’s story (and her laughable “tough broad” routine on Tessa) just seem like a grasp at giving Melody/Nikki something to do until Victor returns.

Violet Lemm
Guest
Violet Lemm

Thanks Soaphound. I got such a kick out of Nikki with her scary tactics towards Tessa, whom I feel deserved everything she got, even to the point of dumping her ass on the side of the road. Speaking of Nikki, when she gives her full-on laugh and lopsided smile, and I mnean that in a complimentary way, she looks just as she did back in the day. Wish we could see more of that, instead of her nose up in the air. Her constant haughty airs take away her beauty, still hiding there.

I have said it many times before, Y&R no longer feels and sounds like classic Y&R, it’s sad what this show has become…I have to admit that I was going to quit watching it but I haven’t as of yet…

Celia
Guest
Celia

Awwww, Kevin!! Don’t you see? The reason you haven’t stopped watching is because Y&R is part of your life. LOL. I’ m in the same boat….I will watch until the end….whoever expires first?? HaHa…. Some of these storylines are unnerving……..Tessa, Rey, Arturo….many more need to go!! Thank goodness, it looks like Mia is departing GC–Miami awaits? Something else, which has always bothered me, is that Peter Bergman is 36 years older than Alice Hunter ( the new chemist)….why? And, “Arturo”is only 26….almost ten years younger than “Abby”, but, at least, within reason. Making out with “Jack” would be gross for… Read more »

Hi Celia, I actually did quit watching back in 2006/2007 when the top brass let Kay Alden and the music staff, Jack Allocco and David Kurtz go… OH HOW I MISS THE BEAUTIFUL CLASSIC BACKGROUND MUSIC, lol, YES I will say that until the day I die or until Y&R rehires Jack and David back to compose the music…I am THANKFUL I can still hear their beautiful work on The Bold and the Beautiful which I do enjoy but wish the show was an hour…I missed a lot of years during the Jill Farren Phelps, Maria Arena Bell and the… Read more »

Hey, Kevin….That should read Keystone Kops. LOL.
I must be fair and say, that Mr. Fairman did put his foot down and we have all been ‘behaving’…….if you notice, it is only the odd few, whose names are not familiar who enjoy trolling.
I can understand giving an opinion, but attacking other posters for it is irreverent, to say the least. it’s the offender’s own insecutity.

I’m in the same place as you, Kevin. I started watching in 1974, in high school, and have never felt so letdown and disillusioned with the show. And I blame these wretched newbies: Rey, Mia, Nate, Kerry, nuFen… one more repugnant than the other. We desperately need Victor, Ashley, more Traci, less Rosales family, and… the return of Drucilla. Now that’s Y&R worth tuning in for.

Hi Soaphound, it was about the same time for me too and I just started high school and watched on days off and during the summer with my mom, one got hooked on those good old days of Y&R…So you remember and understand exactly what I was saying about Y&R…OH, I so miss those days…I agree with you too regarding all the newbies…I like newbies but as other’s have said not at the expense of the veterans…I feel so bad for Doug Davidson and I miss him so…I actually have to say that I do find chemistry between Sharon and… Read more »

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
