Holly whoa!!!

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!

Drucilla too…her story hasnt been resolved-where is she…its been nearly ten years-lol

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.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

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!

Bart

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

Scott (ATWT Fan)

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.

Elizabeth isn’t going a guest spot on the show; she’s on for the foreseeable future.

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

Could we photo shop OUT:

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.

Anyone notice he is the only “man” in a white tux……???

@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……….

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.   

Photo: CBS

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Courtesy/ABC

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
