Y&R Connects The Dots To The Past, Present & Future With New "Previously On" Before Each Episode Begins!

Courtesy/CBS

The executive producer and head writer of The Young and the Restless, Mal Young continues to make some changes to the top-rated soap opera to entice viewers, keep them engaged. and bring in some new ones as well.

Starting on yesterday’s Wednesday, December 13th installment of the CBS sudser, at the top of the episode appeared a new “Previously On” before the action starts for the day’s drama.

In it, Y&R sets up some moments in key stories to let the viewers know where they are in story, and to look back at even some older clips to fill in the blanks for a big return; such was the case of J.T. Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) who is back in Genoa City after a several year absence.

Young said on the change to the top of the episodes: “We are always exploring innovative approaches to enrich the viewing experience for our fans. Adding the ‘Previously On’ segment provides us an opportunity to set the tone for each episode and draw on the rich history of Y&R to connect the dots of the past, present, and future.”

So did you catch yesterday’s “Previously On”? Do you like the concept? Let us know in the comment section below!

I don’t like it. It’s unnecessary. I prefer the “next on Y&R” at the end of the episode, which this appears to be replacing.

Hi, Mo,
I think I spoke ( typed, LOL , too soon)…… you are right…. I agree.
I read in such a hurry, I completely overlooked the fact that the “preview” before the episode replaced snippets of next episode
So, I do not like it…..I am vehemently objecting and amending what I said….But, I did enjoy Michael Fairman’s version of “Fighter” by Urban and Underwood. WOW!!

I agree, Mo. I look forward to the previews. Anyone who is THAT far behind can always catch up online, etc. It was always my feeling that anticipation only makes one more likely to keep watching. Silly me.

Mo

Exactly! Show me what’s coming up so I’ll want to tune in. Even if you don’t watch every day, you can still figure out what’s going on. Mal just wants to make changes and put his mark on it. Not everything is broken and needs to be fixed!!!!

I like it, it is more prime time. But I don’t think they need it every day? Maybe on Mondays, to catch the viewer up on some key moments from the last week. I don’t think viewers need to bitch about something as small as this right now! Three out of the four soaps are absolutely on fire right now!! Days, GH, and Y and R are firing on all cylinders. I don’t “get” B and B, I never will. Incest / near incest is just not my thing, and that show is just a revolving door of family members… Read more »

I vaguely recall when we had both the previews and the “previously on” footage.
It seems that they needed to give Y&R viewers a brief history lesson on JT. He is before a lot of folks’ time, moreover, some of us might be a little hazy with our memories.
It works for me. Lately, I have found previews not to be reflective of the next episode anyway. In fact, GH has been announcing “Next on General Hospital” only to show quick clips of what just transpired.
I like it, but wish we could have both previews and “next on…” footage,

I also would like “previously on” and “on the next”. Isn’t that what all the popular network shows do? The first time I heard “previously on” I thought it was cool but then when there was no “next time” I was so disappointed. Why do you have to eliminate that? Please bring it back and keep “previously on” Can’t loose this way and make everyone happy

I agree. For people who watch this show everyday there is no need for us to see the same as we saw the day before. I really miss “NEXT”, which gave us a clue as to what to expect on the following days show.

I second this!! Next means a glimpse of what’s to come and had me in a can’t wait mentality. Don’t like the before episode recap at all.

Not going to lie, I actually prefer the “Previously on…” segment instead of “On the next…,” because they can bring in flashbacks, such as what they did for Victoria and J.T., which is helpful for those who either do not remember or were not watching during that time. And to the people bitching and moaning that it takes away from showtime, it’s only 10-15 seconds longer than the “On the next…” segment, so stop trying to be negative and embrace a nice change.

Celia

Hmmmmm. I am going to sound like a space cadet, LOL…. but, Scott, you do have a point.
I think some of us are so used to status quo, we cringe at change. ….I guess we’ll get used to it…

I’m also liking the “Previously on” segment because it could help newer viewers.Plus by eliminating “On the Next” segment some viewers may not know what is going to happen on the next episode and will have to tune in to find out.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Exactly! You bring up a good point: not having the “Next on…” segment means they have to tune in to see who’s going to be on and what happens. These changes, for me, are excellent and very positive!

I agree, Scott. As a longtime viewer, it was a treat to see the flashbacks!

“Previously” has nothing to do about flashbacks from 2 decades ago. It is all about the episode from the day before.

Yeah but what a brilliant way to repurpose the idea.

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Guest
Scott (ATWT Fan)

Says who? And it wasn’t “two decades ago,” it was from 2007… that’s ten years. One decade, and as I previously stated, it helps remind those who may not have watched the soap back then what happened and how characters are connected, etc. And, again, it’s just a way of people being negative all-the time to complain about it. Since when does it have to be about the episode before? I’ve never seen rule about that.

Steve
Guest

Adding “previously on” is not innovative! The ABC shows did that in the early 2000’s. It was a waste of valuable airtime. It saves the show money as they can shoot less of one scene and give that time to “previously on”. Works for a weekly show, not a daily one.

Yes, I do like this concept. In fact, I think it’s brilliant. It gives long time viewers a chance to see some vintage clips and it gives new viewers a way in to current story.

“Previously On.” is nothing new…Another World did that many years ago in the late 70s but it did not last…so Y&R isnt doing anything new…i do like the idea because if you miss the last episode you get to see bits and pieces you missed or might have overlooked had one watched…but still Another World gets full credit for the first to do “Previously On.”…Another World also gets credit for the crossover story, especially with its spinoff of Somerset when characters visited both Bay City and Somerset!!!

Celia, Hi! And I agree. I’d rather he lose that makeshift beard, but I could spend a week in that resplendent blonde hair. His return is most welcome. J.T. was one of the few characters who actually had scruples (though he was unduly mean to Kevin for too long) and who didn’t cower to Victor.

Celia

You’re right, Soaphound……my personal opinion, a blond beard looks scraggly….not just on Thad, but in general.
And, yes….I always liked JT…..now, if only Mac ( Ashley) could come back; take her inheritance back from interloper Devon; GC’s world be resplendent in its divinity, again….LOL.

LOL, Lew….as you can see, I can’t seem to make up my mind. I used a little sarcasm by “vehemently objecting”……I was just joking, in that, it really makes no difference one way or the other, when we think about it. As long as we don’t lose these precious remaining soaps, “they” can do whatever they want….
Later, Lew.

I don’t care for anything like that just as much as i don’t care for the scenes for the next episode. Soaps were never done this way and i feel that the essence of soap opera has been completely wiped away. Very rarely do we get that surprise that has us calling someone and asking “Did you see what happened to so-and-so today on?” It used to be fun to swear at our TV screens too when something suspenseful would happen to a character or when that last second of a Friday episode ended because we knew we had to… Read more »

Hi K/kay, I so agree with you…I DO NOT LIKE what Mal Young is doing to Y&R and it’s just a matter of time before I quit watching…I started watching full time again when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden returned and even though people complained about Sally’s writing, I loved it and if given time I think we would have seen a lot more with romance, mystery and suspense with Sally and Kay…In my opinion, Mal’s writing and direction, editing and his day to day mode of Y&R is horrible. I have seen other’s complained about this too and I… Read more »

It behooves me beyond end that people say bring back Bill Bell or the days of Bill Bell. You can’t. He was a creator with a unique vision of daytime but he’s been long gone.

Hello davlestev1, I understand what you are saying and agree with you to a certain extent…Bill Bell stepped down from Y&R in 1998 and the show continued with Kay Alden as the head writer and the show was excellent until CBS/Sony decided to let Kay and other behind the scenes workers go and that is when we lost Y&R that many fans fell in love with…Y&R wasn’t broken and now it is…I know Bill Bell passed and I am not saying bring back Bill Bell but bring back his vision and I really believe it would of if they would… Read more »

You have my full support here, Kevin. You have voiced what die-hard fans have wanted for the better of 2 decades: the music, the pacing, the romance– Bill Bell’s vision continued with Sussman and Alden. To drop them after a year’s return bothers me. The show was returning to those glory days, but that’s out the window. I’m just hoping things settle down. I do not like the “reality of time” the show now has: a day is really a day. That’s never been the formula of soaps since the inception of them!

I wish they would quickly do that to B&B so we don’t have to listen to the same conversations for a week. I get that it is a half hour show but if you are THAT worried that your viewers won’t catch on then maybe you need different viewers. When I was a teen and soap surfing due to football, etc., it was NOT the dialogue that kept me intrigued but the characters and the action.

I don’t care for it– I too prefer the next on y&r segment– but since it is the last soap to keep that feature I can’t fault them for dropping it– but replacing it with previously on- using scenes from a while back only make sense to regular viewer, and regular viewer don’t need a refresher– plus soaps are written in a way, most of what happened is repeated over and over in the dialogue, you can catch up pretty fast without need the previously on feature.

I find it very helpful, as I’ve been watching for a few years now but didn’t know, for instance, Victoria and J.T.’s history. And sometimes there’s something you missed from a previous episode, so now you know what you need to know for that day’s episode to make sense. I do miss the “Next on . . . ” segment though. Couldn’t we have both?

I really detest the new format where we get to see “previously on Y&R” as if we would FORGET where we are in the story BUT they removed the much more interesting “NEXT on Y&R”… This is a daily show not a weekly drama so we don’t really forget the story overnight!! So far I like the writing, I like the return of JT, and I am still hopeful for the return of Adam (MM) because we are sure missing the dynamic of what this character adds to the show and storyline potential!

I don’t mind the “Previously On” thing (OLTL and AMC used to do it) and don’t really miss the “Next On” tags either. What I do not like is Mal Young’s approach where each episode is one day on Genoa City. It doesn’t make for good soap opera and leaves the characters looking stupid: are we supposed to believe that J.T. walked into Victor’s office and then everyone just went home and Victoria waited until the next morning to talk to her ex-husband? Or that Sharin’ saw Scott in a blood covered shirt in Paul’s office and went home and… Read more »

I enjoyed the first two segments of the show as it gave an idea of which cast and plots would be covered in the hour. Now it just is a look back. For most fans, they already have seen the shows, or if they wish to know the back story, it’s possible to look it up online. The preview can’t answer each viewers questions about previous show. To entice viewers with a preview makes a lot more sense to me. I’d see a preview and make sure to watch the next day for sure if it was a part of… Read more »

It’s a daily show so a lot of the dialogue that is said on one day gets repeated again and again throughout the week. Days of Our Lives neither does “previously on” nor “next on” and so we get to see a little more of the episode then Y&R or GH. Those things work for a weekly but are unnecessary for a daily.

Not to mention that this actress has only played Victoria for about 12 years. And I don’t know why everyone is shocked that Victoria is being a tough business woman (aka BITCH). When Heather Tom played her, she was a scowling, mean spirited bitch 24/7. She had the penultimate resting bitch face! Even when Amelia is playing the tough part, she has a natural, likeable quality that was absent in Tom’s portrayal. I much prefer Amelia’s version. There is nothing warm or appealing about Tom’s acting and I seriously do not understand why she has a mantle full of Emmy’s.… Read more »

It’s dumbing it down for NEW viewers. This kind of thing always feels like a slap in the face to the current viewers because we have been there all along. I never need a “previously on” or “next on” for soaps because they are daily. It is not DALLAS from the 80s that needs this.

But B&B could definitely use this strategy to move that show along since it is a half hour format then we would not have so much repeat of the dialogue and the story could get going faster.

I don’t like it at all. I watch the show on boring days all the way thru just to see the previews. It’s my favorite part of the show. There is enough redundancy during the show that the beginning Clips are boring . The beginning captions only are relevant if the show has been off 2 weeks Not 24 hours. As my mom would say, if it ain’t broke , don’t fix it. Please restore. The future Clips. I have not to talked to one person who likes the new look.

The changes to the show have left the show very choppy – I have watched Y&R on and off for over 20 years. I prefer the Next on vs the previously on, but more importantly the content of the show is now very choppy. The show now ends the episode on some sort of “cliffhanger” but is no longer picked up on the next episode, instead the next episode is a new day, so it feels as if we are left hanging. We do not get to see the reactions and feel the emotions of what happened where the last… Read more »

You nailed it, Kristen. Exactly how I feel about the next episode picking up on a new day. It makes the show “choppy.” The viewers can’t see reactions and emotions of what happened where episode left off. We are left hanging. Horrible changes and has taken enjoyment away from watching the show. I already commented on the “previously on.” It’s awful and unnecessary for a daily episode show. “Next on” provided anticipation and the viewer could look forward to next one..

Joanne Rice

I think it’s pretty unanimous that people do not like the “previously” and they prefer the “next” It gives you something to think about in anticipation for the next episode. If you are that far behind that you need to be recapped every show, then your not watching it on a regular basis. I can miss a week or more and still manage to catch up. Bring back the “next” listen to your loyal viewers for once!

Hate the new format. Change it back. The show is lacking recently, I watched since it’s beginning. I prefer more melodrama. That’s what soaps use to be in the early eighties. Intense stories that were hard to digest. Quite frankly, I’m bored.

Marianne
Guest
Marianne

No, I do not like the “previously on” at all – it’s not needed to know what happened. Also, it seems longer than “next on” so it takes more time away from the actual episode. “Next on” got me excited to see the next episode and now it seems the show just drops off and it’s disappointing every time.

I have been watching y&r since Douglas introduced Nikki Newman to Victor. As a loyal viewer of the show, when a format such a the original format has worked for the show, since the beginning, you don’t change the best and tried and true way which works. It should be changed back to the shows preview back to the end. Thank you for this opportunity to give feedback for letting those who make these decisions feel about the change with the hope it will be changed back.

General Hospital

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
