Y&R Posts Largest Audience In A Year With Strong Week!

A new CBS press release is touting that for the week ending January 19th that The Young and the Restless delivered its highest total viewing audience in just over a year.

In story, Graham (Max Shippee) was on the receiving end of his own syringe he was going to use on Dina (Marla Adams) to end her life, but it was he who was then taken off life support, while Ashley (Eileen Davidson) was suspect in the whole ordeal, and Lily (Christel Khalil) and Cane (Daniel Goddard) were attempting to rekindle their relationship, while J.T. (Thad Luckinbill) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) were “rekindling” theirs.

Y&R’s numbers came in at 4.84 million viewers for the week, its largest weekly audience in a year (since the week of Jan. 6, 2017).

The series will celebrate its 45th anniversary in March.

What did you think of last week’s episodes of Y&R?  Has the show improved since a year ago at this time? Comment below!

Chuckle. Suoo used to push my buttons too, Randy. But now she kind of cracks me up. I did not want Graham to die! I know he was dastardly, but there was a glimmer of fun in this man. Did they have to make him 100 evil? I thought I saw something there (a heart?(but I guess I was wrong. The reason Y&R continues to be the number one rated soap is because it consistently pays fidelity to core families and core characters. It’s that simple. Sure, there have been a few missteps and mistakes made along the way but… Read more »

Oh, SuzieQ…..Wussy Man???? Crack me up…thing is, I never saw Cane as a man. Iam not one of those women who goes into a string of jumping jacks and spinning at the same time over Australian men….especially Cane….he always sounds so whiny and insincere.
Yeah, if he ever had any vestiges of manhood? It’s gone…gone….gone…

I do not think it’s improved at all and I DO NOT LIKE the way Mal Young is doing the show with this day to day scenes and not continuing where they leave off so it’s left to our imagination of what happened between the characters…I have said it a million times and I will say it again, Y&R is no more, it’s not the once great show that was created by William Bell and the show has a total different feel and style and again, I DO NOT LIKE IT and I don’t see how the ratings are up….I… Read more »

Sounds like you should let people have an opinion. The new format sucks. When Mariah yelled at Tessa, I wanted to go back the next day and see reactions to that right then and there……instead, we only get aftermaths and people talking about what happened instead of seeing it. Makes me not care about the storylines. I’ve been watching for 30 years. I’m not going to stop because they’re doing something I don’t like because just like every soap, changes get made all the time and maybe at some point this guy will change it back again.

I’ve watched for over 35 yrs and think it’s better now than it has been since Bill Bell was writing. I finally recognize characters such as Ashley, Sharon ect. Hillary is being written in a love to hate her way. We all have a right to our opinions but I am extremely happy with Mal Young’s vision for my favorite soap.

Hi toscanti and bianca…I respect you all and your opions but I totally agree with Bianca that the new format sucks and I love Y&R…toscanti, actually the writing that Sally with Kay as a consultant is what started Y&R back to where it should be but the 2 things I don’t care for is the new format that Mal started like Bianca and I mentioned of not seeing something play out and then, here I go again and it’s been years that it’s been gone and I miss it so is the beautiful classic background music which added so much… Read more »

LOL, Harry. I read your question, “are you randy?” but I honestly didn’t know if you were referring to the English definition and were joking or if you sincerely meant it…since Kevin said he was randy! THAT is funny! (no offense to Kevin; nice poster!) though that was a tad confusing!

Rebecca, fancy seeing you here. I was engaging in a little word play. Yes, I meant “randy” as in horny.
But also, sometimes a comma can make all the difference between,”I am eating, Mother” and “I am eating Mother.”

I “stroll” on over here occasionally. Watch the show very sporadically…a bit when Justin Hartley was on, when Steve Burton was on (only watched a bit then discovered I REALLY like DOOL! Got into that very quickly (and recently). I also took note when Scott Grainger was announced on Y&R, then the exit…he reminds me (physically) of Aidan Turner (and a bit of Matt Cohen). So, had to check him out! Like to tune in to any of MF’s with threads about ratings; soap anxiety (:) ) hoping the numbers are good enough so that we don’t have another soap… Read more »

As a veteran YR viewer, the ratings for the show over the past decade have been baffling. How has YR managed to remain the top watched soap while it has struggled through an ever changing group of producers and head writers and lackluster writing in the past 10 years?? I personally thought Sally Sussman/Kay Alden were doing a good job (better than any of their predecessors over the past decade) and were NOT given a proper opportunity to write for the show. (These two YR veterans deserved more of a shot than 8 months of episodes). However, as this site… Read more »

Given the bitterly cold, snowy, winter weather in lots of places in the northeast/midwest part of the country that week, it’s not surprising that ratings would be up. More people were available to watch, but that does not mean that the quality of the show is better. It’s not, by a long shot. The truth is that Y&R has had a very cushy time slot for decades. Honestly, I’m sure plenty of people simply leave their TVs on CBS after The Price is Right (and noon local news on the east coast). It just proves that Y&R’s loyal fans are… Read more »

And, Noah needs to dump that little thief Tessa and find someone WAY BETTER!!!!!

Take care, my friend.

Harry

PS, Jay, it’s not enough that Tessa had to steal Mariah’s heart, she also had to steal her journal and her words! I think Mariah should pull a Taylor Swift and write her own song about Tessa and get it covered by……well, Taylor Swift!!! I smell a guest star cameo coming. You go get her, Mariah and Taylor.

Hey, Jay, You got me thinking…firstly, I have never liked Jack…so, I needed to get that out. His holier-than-thou-‘tude does not work for me. His core is tainted….he’s not a good person. He and Victor are more alike than they realize….they will both stab anyone in the back, even their own ‘blood’, if it benefits them…the me, myself and I syndrome, as I call it…I know people like that, Jay.

Well said, Celia, and I totally agree. I also agree with you, Jaybird. As Sharon told Tessa, what she did to Mariah was “unconscionable”. Let’s take a look at what Tessa did to Mariah: First Tessa leans in and kisses Mariah (yes, she was the aggressor) and then she pulls back and says she can’t go there,and can’t they just be friends? This is utterly heartbreaking and confusing for Mariah so she conducts some soul searching and writes down her deepest personal feelings in her private journal. Tessa, suffering from writer’s block, steals her journal and plagiarizes her words knowing… Read more »

Correct me if I’m wrong ( I may be), but, I think Lily fessed up. I am not saying what she did was right, but she did tell Cane. I think this was discussed at length on both occasions—yes, there’s always room for forgiveness, I am just not one of those women. ….of course, it… Read more »

I wasn’t watching Y&R when Thad and Amelia were on before. Then I hear they were a real item but are now splitting. Could have fooled me. They really seem to be into each other on the soap. That takes real acting to pull this off based on the circumstances. Or is it all acting? Wonder if this will help be a bridge to getting them back together in real life?

And then there was Max and Marla. Wow…especially Marla/Dina. I didn’t know her from before, and was so impressed with her on the tough role she has just played. She’s such a lovely, talented actress. Will miss her. And I think that Dina’s adrenalin could have kicked in and she could catch Graham off balance and put the syringe into his arm by accident. And Max was also impressive as Graham. Always don’t like it when they kill a character like him off in case they want to resurrect him in the future. He was such a good villan.

Well wait around we are now going to get a story where JT is hooked on drugs and gets violent with his son and probably Victoria.

True, K/kay…..JT is on ( probably) some kind of opiate ( barbiturate, narcotic or something), which will eventually catch up to him. We saw a little display of the effects, today……the way he grabbed Reed. So, K/Kay, should we brace ourselves from what’s to come???? Another drug-addiction-detox storyline. Oh, joy!!!! Very astute of you…..why did Mac divorce JT? Hmmmm….good question. Is it because of his addiction?…. if he is addicted in the first place…… ….I think Victoria is so enraptured and enwrapped with what’s happening with her head, her heart, her body and emotions, she hasn’t come up for air…..she… Read more »

I have not caught up but did I read right if I am wrong someone jump in but Dina got to pull the plug because she was his wife but she has Alzheimer’s? I am really upset with Mal he knows better he has made to much comedy watch someone with Alzheimer’s not amusing I am sorry but if you are going to go down the road tell the sadness nothing is funny about a person losing their mind.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Again, K/kay…..very astute of you. I did a little research ( through my husband, LOL) ….
While Alzheimer patients do have moments of lucidity, which Mal has been using to his advantage and convenience, you are right. It does not work that way.
Even with moments of lucidity, such patients are not mentally ‘ healthy’ . Their sense of ken is compromised, therefore, not reliable, especially in a case between life and death.
I guess it’s called poetic license, Kay…it’s a soap. However, regardless of all the ‘irregularities’; what a great scene…..go Marla!!

The show’s new format continues to undercut any drama by making each episode a new day. I find it hard to believe that Mariah flipped out on Tessa at the end of last Friday’s episode and then everyone just went home and waited until the next day to discuss what had just happened on live tv. Or that an Alzheimer’s patient was allowed to pull the plug on a man she may not have even been legally married to when his mother was alive and well in Florida (something that both Jack and Ashley knew).

I love Maugham’s works and wonder if any of the current writers even know any of those titles! If they know P and P, it’s probably from a cheesy film version.

As a vet from the getgo viewer I have to agree with these stats. This show is the best it has been in the last 5 years. It started with Sally and Kay and is continuing to be even better with Mal Young at the helm. Of course there will be s/ls that are a waste such as anything to do with Lily and Cane but they pass. I’m happy to see Amelia be given something that counters her shrew image and Jtoria is tremendous chemistry. Sharon has been redeemed and hopefully for a long while.

Noah is acting like a jerk towards Mariah, albeit I can understand his hurt. He feels betrayed that Mariah could not confide in him, with her moment of weakness with Tessa. At the same time, he is being so harsh and… Read more »

Harry, Harry, Harry…I also love a lot of US/Brit punk rock amongst my other music interests. But you are in the spirit of above comments because The Smiths/Morrissey are British. Really like “How Soon Is Now.” Could go on and on but I’m sure MF would not want me to. Very sad a member of one of my favorite bands with an edge, The Zombies, passed away last week. I say passed away because the music carries on. Like Youtube helps us with past year soaps.

As for the Smiths….I think they may have been quite prescient about the royal demise….they were simply a bit premature in predicting it…when Her Majesty departs this mortal coil, I suspect she may take the monarchy with her, but, hey, it had a good innings, yes???? As for “ShyDi-mania?”I was not a participant in that particular phenomenon either….she made an unquestionably beautiful “Princess Bride,” but that highly-fabricated… Read more »

I’m with you K/kay on trying harder to get along. “Yes” some of us have a different way of seeing things and expressing ourselves, but I would like to think we can show we can coexist, and even learn from each other. Even Shay and I have found we have something in common…lots of things British. There are probably even more. This applies to soaps and real life, and heaven knows we need it in the kind of world events we are experiencing. And most importantly to those on MF, we need it to keep our soaps alive.

@Rose…..I agree we probably have much more in common than it has appeared as of late…For example, I think we share many of the same basic moral values and concerns regarding certain societal problems that are currently plaguing this country…we simply are vexed and perplexed by each other’s polar opposite ideas and ideals in reference to how they can be addressed and corrected. Same situation when it comes to various GH characters and storylines!

Shay…I’m afraid I can’t take credit for being the Rose from across the pond” you found amongst the Markle comments. Even when you look at MF there are several Roses. I can see how “real” Brits may be protective of their monarchy, and who is allowed to become part of the family. But from what i’ve read and heard about Meghan I hope they give her a chance. Nobody’s perfect or comes without baggage.

Rose and Shay, I have never been very interested in the current Royal family. I was not one of those who obsessed over Princess Di. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t dislike her and I was sad about her untimely death, but I didn’t invest a lot of emotion into this person. I just didn’t get the fascination with her. I am an alternative rock/punk rock fan and have been since my college days. I especially love The Smiths and think of The Smiths singing about how the monarchy is dead. That said, I watch Victoria on PBS and The… Read more »

Hey Rose…I left you a message somewhere…don’t even know now which thread! Was it YOU who mentioned Oultander…I was confused, too, because one “rose” has an uppercase and one a lower…as you do now! Maybe we should have numbers or letters after our names if there are posters with the same name!

I have seen a Rebecca without the number 1…though only a few times…and I think I’ve seen a Becca. And then there are two Kevins, etc….

Y&R needs a Faison-type, T…..suddenly he has kids all over the place, including Peter ( Hendricks?), who is also Anna’s son given away at birth?
We both like Eric Braeden as an actor ( as does Harry) and he is killing the character he plays in Victor….but, he pales in comparison.
Graham was a sheep…Zack too young and amaturish….Luca miscast…..
So, we need a baddie without a heart to really disrupt GC’s equilibrium.

Fits perfectly, wouldn’t you say? Faison stays true to form. Victor, not as bad as Faison, stays true to form etc. The newest ‘reformee’ is Ava…..Julian will soon follow suit.

Perhaps at the time they were scrambling to find a new character for Roger they could have chosen more wisely…a long-lost Q…Jason’s twin (before Billy Miller even joined the show). But, they didn’t.

Max was stunning, Ron. But, I did not take to Graham. He was your standard baddie—no charisma, albeit many liked him, as yourself. I am in the minority, I know….
He was just too debonaire and suave for me—impeccably dressed– his suits fit mahhhvelously…what’s that old cartoon character? Dishonest John, with the handle-bar mustache? Well, Graham didn’t have a mustache, but I always pictured him with one. HaHa.

I think it would be brilliant to have Dina hallucinate her former “men” especially John Abbott (I think the actor is still alive) and, naturally, Graham ( I think it would be a clever twist to this story, and from what I know about Alzheimer victims, they “really” do see people from their past.… Read more »

Though there has been some hiccups along the way recently I have been enjoying the show more a bit lately, mostly because of JT and Victoria. I am loving their easy yet sizzling chemistry, they’re even hotter this second time around. Dina turning the tables on Graham was almost Shakespearean and it’s great to see the writing actually using Camryn’s skills as Mariah blasted Tessa… those things paired along with Jtoria have made the show better imo. I only hope the upswing continues.

The thing with the needle/syringe. Dina may have stuck Graham with it, but did she then push the plunger? No, I don’t think so.

Could he have died just from having whatever may have been on the needle tip go into his body?

So for me, Graham dying rang kinda hollow. Not to say I’m not glad he got what was definitely coming to him, but I think execution wasn’t so great. Plunger wasn’t pushed, meaning whatever was in the syringe didn’t go into his body.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Wow!!! Good point….very observant, Mo. the syringe had always been in Graham’s possession. Did he poison the tip of the needle for a speedier death? Perhaps he did have some feeling for Dina, as twistedly contradictory that sounds.
We may be underestimating Dina. Maybe, she did it….. was Dina watching her own back??…she did ask Graham what he was doing with all those drugs when she caught him redhanded.

Mo

When the syringe was stuck in Graham’s arm and he was acting all weird (like being poisoned), I noticed the plunger wasn’t depressed. Why didn’t he just grab it out?

Celia, have you seen Superstore on NBC? it is 30 minutes- it is a comedy but really a soap opera- and so so good and hysterical. I guess it has been on a few years but just discovered it and love it and want to talk about it. If you can watch last night’s and week before episodes-let me know- we seem to like the same programs and this one is my new favorite. Have a great weekend.

Hey, Phyllis,
I caught a couple of eps when the show first came out….I did think it was hilarious….unfortunately, the timing is not great for me. I didn’t even realize the show was still on. I do like America Ferrera….I used to watch “Ugly Betty” regularly….
I must record the show, so we can talk about it….why not?!

Okay, CeeCeeGirl…..I’ve traveled to all of your favorite soap towns in order to stay in touch, but I have to say that none holds the same appeal as Port Charles…that is the one that I know the best and feel most inclined about which to comment…But it is totally mundane without your input there…I’m keeping up my end of the conversation going, so is the incomparable Phyllis, plus Timmm, Fanny, Harry, Patrick and other favorites of ours…even the fabulous Francesca put in an appearance, yet it’s simply no fun in your glaring absence! Please reconsider your self-imposed exile from Port… Read more »

Thank you for your lovely, gracious post, CeeCeeGirl!…..Your deeply kind words were ever so appreciated, as has been your gingerly-stepped return into the Port Charles fray! I understand that you needed a wee break from the recurring rudeness that keeps rearing its ugly head, but your clever quips and wise-beyond-your-years observations were sorely missed during your brief sabbatical….What can I say? Those “Cee-Cee-esque” intellectual and cultural references—not to mention, witty asides—-are truly indispensible to the GH threads! Just never forget what a supremely special soul you are to so many of us at MFSoaps and know we are always on… Read more »

And I wish we knew each other in person, as well, CeeCeeGirl!!! Oh, the “conversations” we could be having! LOL! At any rate, I’m so sorry to hear of your “headache”…hope you are feeling better today. Normally, winter is the best season for my sinus woes, but the up-and-down weather has been giving me the occasional twinges of discomfort, too…still better than spring and summer though! I apologize for the delay in my response…it has taken me a few days to catch up on GH….with the departure of Faison, my interest has rapidly waned…other than Anna and her “mystery child”… Read more »

Wishful thinking, ma belle amie….. the fab times we would have! ….Probably drive you nuts with my incessant chatter, LOL.
I am in the same boat as you, and many others, are, Shay……Faison was killed too soon.
I had anticipated ‘spending’ time with him gor sooo long, the rntire funereal ambiance of every episode since Peter came to town, sort of left a bitter taste in my mouth.
It is beginning to look like Peter is Anna’s ….my question is?? How involved is Valentin in all of this?

Ah, yes, CeeCeeGirl…fab times, indeed! I don’t think your “incessant chatter,” as you put it, would be an issue at all! So many topics from which to choose beyond the soaps and MF site, in general! (As if those don’t provide more than sufficient fodder for conversation… LOL.) But in terms of GH, yes, I am not at all pleased with how quickly Faison was dispensed…I anticipated some grand showdowns with Anna and Liesl…along with the dark comedy that Anders does so well…although we obtained a few chuckles from his crusty utterances this time around, they were far from enough!… Read more »

I wish Paul would get a real turn at being a leading man on YR. I would love for him to fall in love and dump Cricket and be front and center for awhile.

@Phyllis…I never did like that Cricket….She was an irritating little twerp back in the day and the years have done nothing to mitigate her annoyance factor. Paul can do so much better…..

Do you remember Ross Chandler from AMC? So Handsome and delicious. Why they ever booted him is beyond me. He is on a Diagnosis Murder I am watching and I always loved him. I did not watch YR in Cricket’s heydey. I guess she was a big deal back then and I remember hearing about Cricket and I found her name rather bizarre. When she is on now, she seems rather one-dimensional. Always kind of angry and ready to try a case where she has the facts wrong, loses, or convicts someone we don’t want convicted. Think “sucked a lemon.”… Read more »

Hey, Shay,
I had responded to Phyllis….but,, do not see it….anyway, Cricket used to be very likable. I loved her….i’s since she’s become DA…..she is a sour puss. I still like her, though.
I thought that Cricket and Paul were soulmates; I still do……she just needs to relax, LOL.

Shay and Phyllis, AMC is another defunct soap that I hold dear to my heart. I can’t say I remember Ross Chandler, so I googled him…Robert Gentry? Yes, he was hot, with his ’70’s ‘stache’ , LOL….. I catch a few eps of DIAGNOSIS MURDER, now and then, in the morning….but, I don’t think I’ve ever seen him, albeit I do enjoy watching Victoria Rowell…always loved ‘Dru’…. I love Paul….he seems a very nice, likable guy in real life…..I know Doug has been married to Cindy Fisher ( Dana-Y&R) for a very, very long time, as my Gran says, who… Read more »

Thank you, Phyllis!!!!! I certainly cannot argue with any of your observations….and yes, it would be all kinds of fun to see Paul step out on that unpleasant Cricket person…so who do you suggest for his “dalliances of delightment???” (My compliments! What a classy way to put something that’s actually quite seedy and sordid!) I’m not aware of the current hussy count in Genoa City, so you shall have to enlighten me….On the other hand, if we’re talking Port Charles, I can name at least a few possible candidates, beginning at the top of the alphabet….Alexis——always the first on a… Read more »

Shay darling-is that you behind that prim and proper parasol? Without the seedy and sordid-what would our beloved soaps do? Continue to have old men make everyone kowtow to them and kill and maim in their never-ending quest for power and control. I need more than that. I want flawed characters and bad choices and decisions-not in my personal life-at least not anymore, as there really is no good that comes from that in the long run. How I wish that clarity would have come to me decades ago. But it is here now, thank goodness. But that doesn’t mean… Read more »

Yes, it is…..that is Shay behind that prim and proper parasol, Phyllis….don’t get fooled….beneath that parasol lives a soft, yes, but fierce heart of a lioness who will defend the ‘undefended’ with a banner of strength…….LOL. …
……not only that, but the most loyal, cyber-friend for which one has had the privilefge of “knowing”.
Dear Phyllis….I hope I have not kowtowed…..I needed a break from the riff-raff….
I have been posting on GH, here and there…..keeping it neutral for harmony’s sake….for now, LOL.

Why yes, my dear Phyllis…’Tis I peering ever so coquettishly from beneath my “prim and proper parasol!” (Must protect my pale and delicate complexion!) But fear not, I still enjoy a shady lady with a checkered past as much as anyone else when it comes to our soapsluts….we used to have them in spades back in daytime’s heyday and they were all kinds of glammed up fabulous…usually dressed to the nines whilst taking no prisoners—-but plenty of handsome lovers! I just don’t enjoy the sort of banal boinkers that seem to be populating soaptowns these days…..led by, yes, my favorite… Read more »

I am exhausted. Today was another big, emotional day on GH- I started to bawl a little bit, but it is hard for me to truly engage or suspend disbelief-because once I do, I know something stupid and horrid is right around the corner. Faison-supposedly THE most wanted criminal-had one policeman in his room for less than a minute. Also, when he started to cardiac arrest or whatever-where were the nurses-perhaps all sent away to Paris as well? I am willing to overlook a good deal. But not that. Gees. Come on. Loved Richard Burgi. Sexy. Stupid serial killer story-oh… Read more »

Awwww…you’re the best, Shaybelle….wish I knew you in person…..
I shall post a couple of lines about Faison ( on GH site) tomorrow…..I have a horrid sinus headache….
But, let me tell you, carina, this child ‘O Anna is driving me to distraction…..we shall see…
Do you think the PTB know who it is?….. will they invent someone at the eleventh hour?
Furthermore, su thinks Faison’s corpse is a clone….she’s usually right on the money, Shay!!
Oh, yeah….where is Phyllis? Paging Ms DeMarco-oo-oo…..
Buona notte, Shay….

Oh yes, Miss Phyllis!!! Heather is absolutely worth her weight in gold—-or Kelly’s famous BLT sandwiches, if she’d rather—-so it truly beggared belief that she failed to be included in “The Q a Deux” storyline…such an unforgivable slight of epic proportion! Regardless, Robin Mattson’s perpetual psychopath would still be a welcome returnee to PC for an inspired infusion of her much needed mirth, mayhem and specialty iced-tea mix! The same can be said for that crafty Cassandra….I’m certainly not one for enjoying recycled OLTLers crashing the GH canvas, but for the once, Jessica Tuck was actually an excellent casting choice,… Read more »

How was lunch, dear? I would like to talk about something besides GH for a minute. I have discovered the most enchanting show- Superstore on NBC. I must beg you to watch one or two episodes and see how you feel. No new eps while the Olympics are on- but if you can watch the one from last night and the week before. It is like a soap opera inside a Walmart and it is hysterical. Oh-and ALL the characters get a chance in the spotlight. The mean assistant manager now a surrogate for the general manager and manipulating him… Read more »

Lunch was lunch, my dear Phyllis…As you undoubtedly know, it’s not the quality of cuisine—-but the conversation—-that’s dished out which really makes for an unforgettable meal! I’m all for leaving GH behind for now….I’m truly tired of it. Laura is gone, Faison is gone, and so is CeeCee…what’s the d@#n point? (Whilst the first two are lost causes, we must do everything we can to remedy the latter….I’m serious…it’s so stale in Port Charles without her clever, sparkling observations!) Anyway, this show with which you seem to be so taken sounds like a modern-day “Are You Being Served?” Are you… Read more »

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.
