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!

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!

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

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.

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
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.

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……….

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
