Holly whoa!!!
Big cast !!

The Young and the Restless has the second smallest cast of actors in daytime, honestly.

I see that Chloe is back. Why is she coming back with the revenge for Adam. Let this episode go! I understand and has empathy for Delia’s death. Adam was tried and freed. How long is this saga is going to go on. You need to be creative. I notice a lot of your storylines are always repeating themselves. Stop this Delia storyline. It went on long enough. Couldn’t you have given her another role? This is boring; rehashing things over and over and over.

Get rid of that dorn Luca. He is irrelevant,

I would like to know why doesn’t the police chief ever get anything resolved? Dillian, who had no experience just walks in as a policeman and has more control of the police role than the chief. This is bull!!

Why is Jack so dorn naïve? An older educated ceo man, who doesn’t see any signs at all! At his age, some things he should be able to put 2+2 together. He looks very dumb.

Adam is such a punk. Just like Nick. They have no manly roles whatsoever. They are weak links. The show was more interesting when Adam was powerful and tuff. Now he acts like a little girl. He can’t make no damn decisions. These are all who are irrelevant for Y%R and need to go: Chelse, Devon, Hillary, Neil, Ashley, Dr. Neville, Hunter, Luca, and Jill.

Why do the storylines go out so long before the truth comes out?
Why haven’t Nick found out that his son is alive yet?
Why Jack have not found out about Billy and Phyllis?
Why is Chloe back bringing up this old b.s.?
How long is it going to be before Chloe is going to be revealed?
How long will Adam be in jail?
Why is this the most powerful man in Genewa City, doesn’t have a client, a friend, or a relative that is able to get bail for him or get him off?
Why does the Newman family always go back and forth, hiring, quitting, and rehiring the same people? The same is with Jabot? Why do they share one office?
Why does the Newman’s only have one office? Everybody shares Victor’s office.

I need to write for Y&R. It will be intriguing all the time and not constantly rehashing the same old boring storylines.

I like the character of Chloe. I hope they dont send her completely off the deep end!

Dylan steals ALL of Paul’s lines now. Paul needs to put Dullon over his knee!

They are writing Jack as a clueless druggie like in a Jude Aptow film!

Justin Harley feminized Adam!

You are right, a billion dollar company with one office featuring a 30 year old painting of The Mustache!

The cast photograph is extremely glam and reminds me of old-Hollywood. I cannot wait for other cast photographs to come out from the 43rd anniversary shoot! And right now, this soap is on top of its game. The stories are riveting, and I cannot wait to see what’s coming next, especially with the changes that Mal Young has been making, and has yet-to-make!

“Top of its game”??? The stories are “riveting”?????

Timmm, “Scott” is “Scott”, who has been watching this soap for 20+ years. Just because someone has a positive opinion, that differs from your negative one, does not mean they are not valid. This is the type of behaviour Michael continues to post about on social media.

I can only guess that he is from some “Bizarro” world where their version of “Y & R” is actually coherent & watchable, unlike the drek to which we are currently being subjuected.

No. And unlike you two boys, I am not resorting to name-calling and low-blow insults, simply because your viewpoint of the soap differs from mine. Grow up!

No name-calling here – not one – be careful what you post, dude – I didn’t throw out any names…

As for me, I’ve been watching for over 35+ years, dude – chew on that tidbit

You’re very rude, Bart. And given how long you’ve been watching the show, that’s very upsetting to know someone of your age is acting like a five-year old online. Gain some self-respect.

Bart

I have plenty of self-respect – I just don’t respect people of your ilk – and I do mean ILK!!

Grow up, dude – good-bye.

Scott-never let the negative get to you-some feed on that-best to say thanks for your opinion and let it go at that or they will keep egging you on like Bart-whoever…im starting to enjoy Y&R and have been tuning in more lately…i always watched this one very little over the years beginning with the Brook sisters back in the 70s…watched when Dru and Sharon went over the cliff…but i find myself drawn to it a little more lately…i used to watch a few times a month…now i watch 3 times a week!!

That makes me extremely happy to hear; there has been amazing things coming from Y&R this year, and it’s only going to get better. The pace is great, the storytelling is amazing, and I can’t wait to see what comes next. Hope you keep tuning in, Jim!

I wish they would bounce Summer, Dullan, Stitch, Luca and reduce Chelsea from so much airtime.

I wish there’d been some color in the photo. It’s kinda drab.

Yes! And why couldn’t they have a lighter background? These are some pretty awesome-looking people; we want to see them!

So is Judith Chapman officially gone? Hadn’t seen her in some time, but always hoped to see her show up again, meddling in her sons’ lives …

Her and Jeff are not on anymore because THEY are too interesting!

Thank you for that, Bill. Judith & Ted are sorely missed. Remember that story a few years ago when Michael’s father resurfaced…her performances were among the best I’ve ever seen, nighttime OR daytime. And instead we have Luca? Something doesn’t compute.

soapqueenforever

I agree. Lucas is a useless waste of space. I loved the days when Gloria was running Gloworm. She seemed so in her element doing so. Ms Chapman is to much talent to be wasted. Being both a fan of Jess Walton and Tristan Rogers, I would love to see Jill and Collin come back. Maybe we could have a fair trade. Lucas and Summer leave, and we get Jill and Colin. Mwybe if we wsk nicely and say pretty please!!!!!!

Re: Elizabeth Hendrickson…she’s probably not in the photo because she’s just on for a short story arc and no longer a part of the regular cast.

Thank you Scott! I did some checking and you’re right about EH’s status.
I used to like Chloe OK, but I’m not caring for vengeful Chloe, so maybe that was my wishful thinking…that she is short-term. LOL

Hunter King, Sean Carrigan, Jason Thompson, Gina Tognoni , Melissa Claire Egan and Sofia Pernas,

Don’t forget that Miles Gastral NewVilla guy or whatever his monicker is – the one-note dope playing Luca/Puka.

@Timmm If you have not seen KB’s speech last nite at the convention google it she knocked it out of the park. Intelligent tasteful had her facts it was fantastic! But then who messes with Sheila Carter????

With all due respect, I do come to the soap genre to escape negative reality, KKay. I realize some has-been soap actors have decided to come to step up and speak on behalf of Hitler, er, I mean, Trump so Mr Fairman has to write about it.
However, this blog and this thread has nothing to do with that shit storm which is currently occurring.
I am sorry to sound terse or remotely rude but this is the first time in my adult life in which a presidential campaign has instilled in me a true sense of horror.
Can we just escape from it all by entering Port Charles or Genoa City once in awhile.
I hope our differing opinions on this subject matter do not severe our formerly cordial posting relationship.

Love how different viewers perceive things. For me, the picture emphasized faces; liked that. I too miss Judith Chapman but always dislike saying who does not please. Dr. Neville’s kind of abstract role has been fun. Victor’s newest redemption has been troublesome to watch.

Give me an occasional, smart good gal or guy in all of this. Mariah comes close, perhaps Ashley, but the play out of Dylan and Paul is way off key.

Where’s the cake and the loose atmosphere with this picture? Why is it so hoity toity? It’s formal instead of fun. It comes off as being snooty.

The Young and the Restless is known for its more glamorous photoshoots, especially where milestones are concerned.

Oh, how I W-I-S-H that Y&R would bring back the following characters…regular basis and all:

1. Cole
2. Gina
3. Gloria
4. Julia (Victor’s first wife)
5. Mackenzie
6. Malcolm (and, yes, in the form and all of Shemar Moore…the ORIGINAL Malcolm!!!!!)
7. Mamie
8. Murphy
9. Nina
10. Patty

Just an idea……….

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

Thad Luckinbill Back Taping At The Young and the Restless

Well, well, well! Look who is back on set at The Young and the Restless!  Thad Luckinbill, who is presumed dead as J.T. Hellstrom, was seen walking around the sound stages at CBS Television City on Wednesday.

That is because Thad is taping again at the number-one soap opera!  In a tweet put out by the series Twitter account with a photo of Thad (see below), they reveal: “Spotted On Set! J.T. Taking a coffee break. Stay tuned!”

So now the mystery begins!  Will J.T. be alive after all, which would exonerate Nikki, and her gal pals in crime, Phyllis, Sharon and Amelia from a murder rap?

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

When Luckinbill returned to the show in late 2017, fans were in for a shock when once nice guy, J.T. was turned into a spousal abuser.

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
