Y&R Draws Huge Audience For Last Episodes Of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney With Highest Household Rating In Six Years!

Courtesy/MuhneyTwitterFanPop

Courtesy/MuhneyTwitterFanPop

It looks like everyone was tuning-in to the Billy and Adam final showdown as played by departed series star, Billy Miller (Ex-Billy) and Michael Muhney (Ex-Adam)!

According to Soap Opera Digest, “The conclusion of the Billy/Adam story last week drew Y&R’s largest household ratings since January 2008, hitting a 4.0 Nielsen rating for the first time in six years!”   That is fantastic numbers for the number one soap, who through all the backstage drama and changes has continued to have very strong ratings over the past few months.

As viewers saw, the gun Billy had been holding on Adam, as they were driving went off …  as the car swerved!  When the dust settled, there was no Adam, but Billy returned banged-up in the form of Daytime Emmy winner and his original portrayer, David Tom.  The story continues to be told.

What do you think of the high ratings for the big showdown?

Agreed. I too have watched Y&R from the beginning, no longer watching after the lasted departure of two more veteran actors forced to leave. They are part of a team whose acting brought Y&R to a #1 spot. However with the WORST of the WORST, JFP and disgusting storyline writers in the history of the soap opera, there is no interest in the show anymore. It is completely a waste of time. Hope all the remaining veteran actresses and actors are preparing for retirement or working toward a better place of employment as Y&R may have been granted a 3… Read more »

I watched Michael and Billy until the very end. And then I quit. I fast forwarded through any scenes they were not in. Now I’m done. Not interested in these lame stories and the mediocre cast. Peter Bergman is the last decent actor on the show.

I hope that you all realize that David Tom, who is playing Billy Abbott now, is the same David Tom that Bill Bell himself hired to play a teenaged Billy Abbott in 1999 and stayed through 2002. He won an Emmy for his portrayal of Billy at that time. Also, if you were watching this week, you’d see that he’s doing a pretty good job of playing Billy nearly the same as Billy Miller had been. When it comes to Michael Muhney, however, it seems there may have been a casting call for his part when Y&R put out that… Read more »

This is so interesting because I tuned back in after leaving as a viewer in 2010 to see Billy confront Delia’s killer. I was a huge Chloe and Billy fan and loved Liz Hendrickson and Billy Miller together. Those two had me hooked on The Young and The Restless from 2008 until 2010 when I stopped watching. The only episodes I truly wanted to see were the episodes surrounding Delia’s death and the episode where Billy exits. I am certain the numbers also had a lot to do with Michael Muhney’s exit although I haven’t really seen him in the… Read more »

exactly Kendra , there will never be another Adam, and i really don’t like the original Billy (Thom) but loved Billy Boy Miller he was awesome at Billy this new old Billy doesn’t hold a candle to Miller

And so many will not be watching anymore. sad sad sad

Learn what from Y & R? How to tear down strong women characters and make them look weak. Bring in other actors who are the EP’s pet peeves and force them down the viewers throats. Divide the cast each other to see who can win the EP’s favor by not getting fired for some made up trash that the fans will never ever believe. Mable it is to do the unthinkable, and get rid of the two main lead actors who are pulling all the weight of the show, because of stupid story lines that not one is interesting in… Read more »

Do you work for JFP? If you like this nonsense then you would love GH. I watched for nearly 40 years and it’s the worst it has ever been. There isn’t even a shadow of what the show used to be. JFP has turned Y&R into the Jason Morgan show.

Dylan is a relatively small character on this show. I have been watching for 30 years and I think it is fantastic spot right now. The core characters carry the show as they should!
This last story was done extraordinary well, hence the massive viewership.
My opinion is Y&R is excellent!

Dylan is actually a major character on the show, and has been for a year since JFP did all that ballyhoo and trumpeting heralding his coming onto the show in 2012 for Jan. of 2013. It’s BECOME “The Dylan Hour” ever since, and now that he’s Nikki’s son, he’ll NEVER leave the canvas. Not only that, but he’ll continue to be a major character for at least 1-3 years definitely, as Steve Burton re-signed on the show (no info on the contract this time … yet) under the radar. Guess JFP had him do that because she didn’t want all… Read more »

Doubt it. I already don’t like David Tom and Amelia Heinle together, he looks way too young for her.

But man I really miss Billy Miller already and it’s only been a few days! I like David Tom as an actor but not as Billy, I wish they re-hired him but gave him a different role, like “Josh Williams,” which was what the original casting call said.

Not surprising to see that Miller and Muhney delivered the numbers as they exited Y&R. It is a testament to their craft as actors and popularity with the audience that brought the viewers. I really think the show and everybody involved mishandled the whole situation. Everyone makes their own decisions, but I have no plans to ever watch this show again. The sight of some of these cast members sicken me. The show is ruined for this viewer.

Y&R’ – STAR – has fallen: so carelessly

Y&R reigned supreme… because of the great production.. that the BELL family, instituted care

Michael Muhney and Billy Miller are a big factor in the testament they delivered and elevated the ailing Genoa City

I just don’t foresee Y&R being any better after these two STARS

January 31, 2014 – 5 days later…it’s that much easier…. knowing… what’s left behind – I don’t miss Y&R

I turned it off–really I did. But I confess to turning it back on a few minutes this week to check out the charismatic, charming and wonderful Tristan Rogers and to see how David Tom is doing. The latter is doing a really job job tackling this challenging role. Really, his taking the baton from Billy Miller was seamless.
So, yes, now I’m done but I do wish I could watch Tristan Rogers.

I love Tristan as Colin– just his being on screen has made the extremely boring Cane more interesting– and his rapport with Jess (Jill) is fantastic. His arrival in GC came at the best time. As for David Tom, I honestly like his performances to date– would I rather see Billy Miller, yes, but for a recast there could have done worse. Back in 99 I tried boycotting NBC because they cancelled Another World, which meant giving up Days– but I too would sneak a peak every once in a while, until eventually I caved and began watching Days and… Read more »

Michael Muhney is an incredible actor. Billy Miller’s work was celebrated. They delivered this audience to Y&R despite horrible writing for a vile storyline. To think they are both gone reflects on the show’s producer. She wanted them gone. Good luck pushing your Orange Man down the viewers’ throats. He’s no substitute for either of the two great actors. Bye-bye Jill.

And yes, as you can already read above, there will be the MM fans who will claim when the viewers drop, that is was them…however, that doesn’t explain the RISE in the numbers over the weeks.

So congrats YR and cast to a job well done. And even if/when the numbers drop off a little for WHATEVER reason, the show is climbing back to a creative high.

I’m sure most will stay tuned for now.

Not all of Muhney’s fans dropped the show. I didn’t, even though I don’t LIKE certain players on there now, certain EPs and such. I’ve been loyal to it, come stars and go, since the Fosters, Brooks and Prentisses were on there, so I can’t quit now. I’ll probably go to my grave wondering what tomorrow will bring (doggone it). But believe me, two more talented actors than Miller and Muhney have never been on that show at the same time like this, and their leaving and being fired (respectively) is a massive loss to the show.

The writing has been so poor that the only thing drawing us in was Michael Muhney’s acting which managed to transcend the writing. The same is true of Miller as of late but I do think he is replaceable with David Tom doing such a good job. My inclination to stop watching is motivated my selfish desire to just watch good stories played by good actors. Now Muhney is gone, that inclination is gone. I adore Tristan Rogers but if they don’t write better storylines for him this time around he won’t be enough to motivate me to start watching… Read more »

Unwatchable! Sadly there is nothing else of interest left on the show.

Being a huge Michael Muhney fan… I am incredibly unhappy with his apparent demise. He was the main reason I was watching Y&R, he and his character Adam were superb!

Hope the numbers were to show support for Michael and Billy!!!

While Miller did leave on his own, he had asked only one thing for his new contract: outs. Not more money, not bigger privileges or dressing room or anything like that, but the time off to do outside work so he could improve himself as an actor. Burton had a very lucrative contract that gave him outs, only 3 days a week work schedule, CBS/Sony agreeing to back projects he was working on … all things he admitted to in interviews. When as talented an actor, who only wanted to hone his craft and states that being Billy Abbott on… Read more »

I have watched the young and the restless since 1974. I am very sad to see Michael Muhney leave the show. He played the role of Adam very well and his character will be missed. Now, so sad to see that the charactor Billy Abbott has been replaced with David Tom. I liked Billy much better than David Tom in the role of Billy Abbott. Good luck to both of these men in their next adventure.

What is wrong with this casting director? Billy Miller ROCKED as Billy Abbott. Plus he has a killer smile!! And Michael Muhney as Adam was good too. I understand there were some issues with him and his colleague. But bring back Billy Miller. Most fans would agree.

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.
