My favorite soap, ever….please do not drown it–get rid of superficial characters. I am begging TPTB to turn it around—Y&R has become as upside-down as GH. Mia, Carrie ( who has an agenda—-sensed it from the onset). …. decapitate them, I beg you!! ( not literally, LOL). What exactly are the writers doing with this woman Mia? Prove she’s a manipulating, psycho? Worse than Phyllis? I am so happy to see Michael be part of Salem’s living again. His resurrection merits mentioning—-a little more Lauren, please!! Oh, I’d love to see Paul take back what’s his—-the job Rey stole from… Read more »

Celia, back in the 90s there was this hilarious comedian named Steven Wright who would deliver his monologues in a monotone (think if Eeyore were a comedian). I recall Wright saying,”I lost my job. Well, I didn’t really lose it. It’s just that when I went there someone else sitting at my desk.” That’s Paul talking about Rey! And how odd is it that not one character asks,”Where’s Paul?” He just vanished with nary a mention of it. I still cannot get over it. How are the new writers going to remedy this I wonder? I agree with your every… Read more »

I, also, agree with your every word, Harry…… If you remember, you and I did comment on this very thing. The writers made the worst faux-pas I can remember…….but, for the sake of a storyline ( an insipid one at that), the “penners” decided to tell the viewer that Nikki had, indeed, committed a crime. No one believed it—-we are a smart, wise bunch….aren’t we, Harry? As you so eloquently said; it was just the opposite. The crime was perpetrated by JT, not Nikki, who did what any mother, human being with a healthy compos mentis would have done. Phyllis… Read more »

Oh, Patrick!!!!!! I am so saddened by what seems to be the disintegration, little by little, of Y&R……these writers are categorically murdering the show. Why give Mia all this importance? And why the sudden engagement of Abby and Arturo? Are these stupid, unappealing characters ( Mia, and Arturo, that is) trying to outdo each other? Who cares? And, why would Devon foot the bill for people he barely knows—or does not know altogether?…..an asine reception? Exactly what is the relevance of these people? Am I the only one who could give two hoots about these interlopers? ……. When I saw… Read more »

Patrick and Celia, I winced when Devon told his sister that Mia reminded him of Hillary. I think my face is still stuck in that wincing position.

Ahhhh, Harry….Hilary is incomparable —-second to none….especially Mia. I will not apologize for the mess that is this actress and character. …..bad role, worse acting.
She does not need a husband …..she needs a super-duper shrink!! Rey needs a super-duper alarm clock!! Arturo needs a super-duper lose-your-accent challenge.
Harry, my friend….What else can we expect super-duper weenie, Devon, to say?? A super-duper empty remark!!

Nobody wants to see pics of the Rosales family – they have NOTHING to do with the successful run of “Y & R”!!! Hopefully Josh Griffith can get them outta GC ASAP!!!

But I do love Lola. She is so good with Kyle. And I would not mind Rey sans Mia. I hope they bring back Paul as police commissioner and he can partner up with Rey. Paul is really good at police/detective bromances and it would be nice to see him in action again.

B&B’s Don Diamont Returns To Y&R

He played Brad Carlton on The Young and the Restless from 1985-2009 before being written-off the show and eventually wound up on another Bell family series, The Bold and the Beautiful, as Dollar Bill Spencer.

Now, as part of the Summer Newman (Hunter King) and Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) feud that is going on from Genoa City to Los Angeles – in a crossover storyline on the CBS sister soaps – Diamont is headed back to his old stomping ground for a visit.

According to Soap Opera Digest, look for Diamont on Y&R the week of February 8th,

Diamont told SOD on his Y&R return, “I had not ever considered that I would be part of a crossover, just because my character was so well-defined at Y&R.”

So have you been enjoying the B&B and Y&R crossover storyline thus far? Do  you think it will be fun to see Don mix it up with some old pals on-screen from Y&R? Comment below.  But first, check out this video released by CBS Daytime of some other crossovers moments over the year between Y&R and B&B.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.
