Lest you think the number one soap opera is not going to a have a big splashy February Sweeps! Better think again after this new interview from the new head scribe and co-executive producer, Chuck Pratt Jr. of The Young and the Restless! 

The Hollywood Reporter chatted with Pratt Jr., as his major dramas are set to explode and implode on the residents of Genoa City in the coming weeks, and it all looks to really kick into high-gear on the Valentine’s Day episode of Y&R next Friday, February 13th.

The story was accompanied by a high-stakes promo from CBS Daytime called, “Flirt with Disaster” that you can preview below!  As for what Chuck has in store, here are a few excerpts from the interview with THR!

Courtesy/CBS

Pratt Jr. on what to expect in upcoming storylines:  “Victor and Jack will go head-to-head, and a mysterious new person will come to town. A major storm is on the way, guaranteed to turn lives and loves upside down. Secrets will be revealed. And when a plane goes down, lives are rearranged.”

Pratt Jr. on how he plans to keep the audience tuning-in every day:  “My motto in daytime has always been make every day a Friday, so that our audience has to watch each and every day. That means more twists, cliffhangers and that primetime feel of ‘What the heck are they going to do next?’ If you stay within character, and keep the stories coming from character, and throw everything but the kitchen sink at them, an audience will start to identify with them and relate to them both as friends, and as people they want to see succeed or find love or survive unthinkable tragedies.”

Watch the promo after the jump!  Then tell us: What you think of the upcoming disaster storylines which have been a trademark of Chuck’s writing in the past?  Who do you think the mystery person will be?  Who will live … and who will die? Share your thoughts below!

Yes I agree Sharon was much much better with Adam then Chelsea. Chelsea is not Adams true love period

The ONLY person for Adam is Sharon. The love and friendship was off the chain. Shadam was my all time favorite couple in soap history!!! 🙂 Chelsea never loved Adam and he didn’t love her. It was thrown together with the changing of writers. Sharon is the future 🙂

I wonder, if it’s going to be a slow build back up… fraught with sexual tensions between Adam and Sharon…. as it should … LOL when MM’ Adam and Sharon broke up… ??? 3 plus years ago now? when I left the show NOW… I can see them getting back together again…. excitement, fan embroil is snowballing…. YES I am SO “over” Nick …. Sharon near doormat … was SO in ‘LOVE” with Adam… Y&R production has to know… what a hot commodity nuAdam is reeling… and they have to be certain… Sharon and Adam is the ultimate dreamteam…. production… Read more »

the funny thing is… these guys should be front burner…. i’ll take a line from “the help” as Aibileen is “telling” Hilly : “ain’t you tired , ain’t you tired”

ie: Victor, Nick, Jack, Michael, Kevin, Billy, Paul…. just saying… it isn’t not true… but the featured contract players have played themselves out some….

these guys are making their mark… and i’ll soapbox… they can ACT

Nikki Newman needs to go away too. The actresses’ somnolent approach to acting is putting us to sleep. She also confuses me as she was seen chugging bottles of vodka on the sly and instead of dealing with her alcoholism, suddenly they are blaming her drunken behavior on MS.
I do hope Chuck Pratt does not engage in plot driven stories full of stunts and plot devices.

CeeCee

Pathetic, is it not, harry? Again, as with mental illness, “they” are taking a serious disease as MS and using it so loosely to accommodate a stupid, overly-recycled storyline such as a drunken Nikki. Very sad!!!!!

If there has ever been a more immature, so-non-fitting-actor for this type of storyline, it is Bryton. He goes through the motions. So far, his only acting has been kissing, stripping and having sex with his step-mother. To think he’s on the list of nominees?
I said this before…Neil never learns his lesson…stay away from girls/women young enough to be your daughter. You reap what you sew, Neil…Duh!!

Not sure how I feel about this … not a fan of Pratt’s ‘plot-driven’, over-the-top, “look at me, I’m in charge now, so to hell with what show you’re used to watching!” mentality. (We all witnessed his ‘anti-character-driven’ 2008-09 AMC tenure, brought-on by Frons of all people! Interviews by the cast at that time do NOT bode well for Genoa City as we know it…)

Y&R has been #1 in the ratings for 26 years. Why would Pratt want to copy a show that’s “flourishing” in 3rd place? He will not turn Y&R into campy GH no matter how bad you want him to. The fans of the soap will not let him. Big changes are NOT coming.

Maybe Pratt is going to be using this disaster to launch his new stories going forward.Plus he wouldn’t be the first head writer to do something like that when taking over a soap.As for who dies i’m thinking it’ll be Austin who doesn’t make it but there could be a mystery of how he dies because i read that both Kyle and Fen will both be involved in a mystery when they return in late February.

Question? Where is Jill Farren Phelps in all of this? I know this is Chuck’s type of storytelling, but I hope they don’t get further away from character driven stories, in favor of the disaster of the week. We saw this with All My Children and they never made their way back from it. I will remain positive and see how things unfold.

Had to reply here, Timmm. My comment was only in regards to those whom want character driven storylines. Splatt Pratt does not do characters. He does plots. I don’t think he’s necessarily bad for Y&R, but he may be bad for the fans that yearn for the Bill Bell brand of storytelling. As long as the majority is happy, it’s all good.

I’m with Timmm on this one … I wrote an op-ed letter published in DIGEST a couple mths ago on this very topic. It is beyond distasteful and self-serving the way Rowell is bad-mouthing CBS/Sony in the press because they haven’t asked Her Highness to return to a show (…CLEARLY that isn’t interested!!) She’s like the party guest that won’t leave … can you imagine being let go from a job and then waging a multi-year campaign to return, all the while maligning your former bosses in the press?! Get a clue and turn-the-page!

Victoria Rowell/Dru- I doubt she would even be allowed on any Y&R set..
After her tirade and lashing out at Y&R with her accusations criticizing the show for not having enough African-Americans in decision making positions and so on, and the behind-the-scenes politics that prevented her from getting Daytime Emmy nominations lol.
Her being Dru again will never ever happen..
There could be a recast, but doubt that also..
and-
Dylan is going nowhere.. He is JFP’s golden boy..

but hey! we have a new Billy!

The only problem with making everyday Friday is daytime is five days a week for almost 52 weeks a year. Daytime is NOT Prime time. You can only put your main characters in these life and death situations before it becomes a bit silly, like the MAB years. Why? Because you have to keep upping your game to out do that last big shocker. Eventually, no matter how talented the writer you are just are going to run out of realistic situations to put your characters in and then you get aliens or vampires kind of stories. Don’t get me… Read more »

This is a great post, and IA with every word. MAB got fired eventually b/c she got so ridiculous with the stories, so I’m not exactly sure why they hired Chuck Pratt. He is notorious for using gimmicks and plot dvices, and that doesn’t work on this show. Unfortunately, I’m already seeing OOC behaviour and contrived situations. This week was flirting with disaster. Next week, the promos say that the destruction continues. Let the irony of that sink in for a second. Hello Chuck Pratt. You are already turning our show into a plot driven mess.

Y&R has to compete with GH. The writers at GH have a strong show with an excellent cast. Even when the “unbelievable” happens it still entertains and captivates. I hope that Y&R can catch a little of that fire. I don’t like the majority of the stories on Y&R right now. All any one does is screw and get pregnant. That plot device is so BORING! Half the characters on the show are past child bearing years anyways. I am not a fan of Jill Farren Phelps or Chuck Pratt but I am willing to see if they can stimulate… Read more »

So many people want Summer gone, but is it the character they want gone or is it the actress playing her? Summer is a legacy character, she is connected to the history of the show– a show should rarely if ever kill off legacy characters because that is like cutting off your nose to spite your face. I agree I don’t like Hunter King’s portrayal of the character– I would love a recast, but I don’t want to see them killing off characters that are their future generation, like they did when they killed Colleen and Deliah. So as annoying… Read more »

Only 1 person won’t make it out alive? I’m not saying Y&R should go on a killing spree and get rid of half its cast, but a disaster like this warrants more than just 1 death. And there are so many useless characters on canvas right now, I could easily do without: Hilary, Devon, Lily, Cane, Joe, Avery, Dylan, Austin, Courtney… There are many expendable characters on Y&R, and they need to trim the fat and bring back characters people want back, like Dru. I hope she comes out on the other side of this, it’d be great to have… Read more »

Even though it seems only one character will die the disaster could also make other characters leave town for different reasons.That way they could always return later.Plus even though one character will die for real other characters could go missing in the disaster.The promo says one character will not make it out alive but it doesn’t say anything about other characters possibly leaving too but not dying..

Well we now know that from next time (tomorrow) Victor brings Phyllis home & you can tell by the plane crash Nikki & Phyllis are together. I hope it’s not Michael Baldwin or Sharon but if someone dies lets hope it’s Summer although we wont be that lucky. Did anyone see who Victor was working on in the plane? Billy maybe because they show Chelsea right afterwards.

I am loving the preview, and feel like this is the kind of storyline Y&R has been craving; the last major disaster Genoa City had was the explosion in 2007. So, this is eight years long overdue. Hopefully this also means some updates to the sets, because the new ones they’ve been debuting are amazing. As for the one death, I have my suspicions of whom it may be, but I won’t say who it is.

If American soaps want a disaster storyline that is character driven, poignant, emotional with edge of your seat suspense, take lessons from the British…go on youtube and check out Coronation Street’s 2010 tram disaster or their more recent bus crash episode…if our soaps could be at least as half as good as theirs, it would keep our disaster storyline from turning into a real disaster…jmho!!!

Just when you think things can’t get any worse, they bring on the worst head writer in the business in Chuck Pratt!

I have to laugh at his “If you stay within character, and keep the stories coming from character . . .” bit, because that’s exactly what he DIDN’T do at All My Children, and he’s gone so far as to say he doesn’t really think characters’ histories matter, especially if they impede the stories you want to tell. Now I suppose it’s possible he’s learned his lesson from that unfortunate episode in his career (i.e., All My Children) and has turned over a new leaf, so that he’ll generate stories from character–but what do you think the chances of that… Read more »

I know it seems a little far stretched but they have been saying that Michael’s characters dies.

Maybe Kelly will mistake Summer for Phyllis & kill her but that’s just wishful thinking.

I believe if anyone dies it will be Hillary. I think Jack will say just enough to get everyone wondering about Adam. Especially Victor and Billy. Adam is going to try to retrace what he’s said.

I’ve been watching Y&R for 33 years. With Pratt, the show is unrecognizable and almost unbearable to watch. The “kids” up at the cabin trying to solve a mystery with Stitch is like Shaggy, Velma and the rest of the Scooby Doo cast solving a mystery. And now Pratt puts Sharon together with Dylan. I understand suspending disbelief but Sharon has slept with all 3 Victor and/or Nikki’s children (Adam, Nick, Dylan) and her step-father Victor. Really Pratt? Really? Y&R separated itself from the pack when they focused on character development. Also, how long is Sharon going to be in… Read more »

Anne Heche Final Autopsy Reveals No illegal Substances in Her System at the Time of Fatal Car Crash

The final autopsy report is in, which puts a bit more into perspective what happened to Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), when she crashed her car into a home back in August, which ultimately took her life.

It has been suggested for months that Heche was impaired while driving erratically on August 5th, which ultimately caused her to crash and suffer a life-ending brain injury.

However, the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner‘s office revealed that the final toxicology results (concluded from blood and urine tests taken when Heche went to the hospital) showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine. That indicates past use, the examiner confirmed. Results also showed prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury. There was no alcohol detected in Heche’s system either.

There had been speculation that Anne was inebriated at the time of the accident which was further fueled by an image that appeared to show a liquor bottle in the front seat of her vehicle.  In addition, the Fentanyl detected in Heche’s system was administered in the hospital after her injuries were sustained.

The medical examiner had determined that Anne died of inhalation and thermal injuries. She was trapped in her Mini Cooper for around 30 minutes before she was rescued by first responders. The official report lists sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as another “significant condition.”

Heche was hospitalized immediately following the fiery car crash. She went into a coma and was declared brain dead the evening of August 11th.  However, her body was kept on life support until August 14th when her organ recipients had been found.  She was 53-years-old at the time of her death.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.
