You can always count on the talented Michael Muhney (Adam) of The Young and the Restless to tell it like it is and be direct about his thoughts!  Muhney took to Twitter this morning to let his followers, colleagues, and fans know that he is very enthusiastic of the future of Y&R under the new writing regime now led by Josh Griffith after reading their first script!

Here is what Muhney shared:  “Does anyone care to know my critical thoughts after reading the first script of the new order at Y&R airing Oct 12th?  Keep in mind, I’ve only just read the first script with new writing. There is cohesiveness in the overall storytelling. Things seem less disjointed. You can feel momentum build from page 1 to 60. I feel like there will be a lot more attention to characters’ voices, and somehow things feel more intense without any cheap tricks. It seems as though the show is on track. It feels like a strong ensemble. I feel like it is classic old show mixed with classy new energy. I feel like this show, as a whole, and with great respect to its history, could be entering one of its best eras.  And while no writing team can be perfect all the time, based on this script & the ideas for the future, this show will be a beacon for CBS. And if I wasn’t happy about the writing or show’s future, I just wouldn’t say anything at all. But I’m honestly impressed.”

So soapers, are you excited to see what is to come in Genoa City under the Phelps and Griffith regime?  Michael Muhney says its off to a very good start! Weigh-in!

It sounds hopeful!!! I believe in Josh G. I hope Adam and Chelsea will brake up ! I think that had to be the WORST snooze in couple history!!! It was so sickening to have to watch that shmoopie {referencing to a old Seinfeld episode) Shmoopie gag crap!!! Adam is better evil. Loved him with Sharon!!!!

AMEN and AMEN. Horray for Adam and Sharon. I wouldn’t mind Adam having a nice side, but be hard core when you have to. Adam and Victor both can play that tough skin role exceedingly well.

Mark my words, JFP will do something to screw it up eventually as a ratings ploy. Kill off beloved vets (Kay?) and go from Corp to mob focused!

Adam loves Sharon it was no way believable he would ever love anyone else. Chelsea is a con and gives her baby away . No one will ever except her. maybe if the actress could act.

Thanks but I will have to wait and see..I have been waiting for a very long time for a story of depth and love for Likey Lauren and Michael..Christian LeBlanc a three time emmy winner and Tracey Bregamn a 1 time Emmy winner have been reduced to props for the Newmans and it has gotten to the point that I gave up and only watch when Michael, Lauren or both are on..I can no longer tolerate what they have done to my couple..Whenever CLB and TEB have had a chance to shine..they have rocked the show..If Josh or Jill continue to use them as props for the others I am completely done with Y and R..

I’m also a fan of Chelsea and Adam. They’re very refreshing. They can be the town’s bad couple.

I never liked Chelsea It was never believable that they went from her a con raping men and drugging them her entire life stealing the money and left Billy to rot in jail. She blamed her mother but she is an adult. She gave away her child with a blink of an eye! It is disgusting. Most hate her for that the most. She is fake and sickening NO CHEMISTRY sorry! Re cast her she can’t act just giggle and homley looking Adam needs to be with someone his mother would aprove of like Sharon

I do hope you are right, Michael M. In recent years, I have not enjoyed my Y&R as much as I once did. The Newman, Abbott, and Wililams families have been so tossed and torn, the relationships and characters no longer seem defined or make sense. Thanks you for the tease and we the fans, with you and your fellow castmates, hope for better days in Genoa City. There were once times, Y&R was so bright on my radar. I cannot say that right now.

He tweeted yesterday he was leaving the show. Why? Besides he said he was offered a lead role in another show.

Here’s hoping for a way better TY&TR than has been seen in the last few years.

I agree I liked him much better being bad. I do not like this Chelsea person She and Adam are boring. I never liked her and think the acting is really bad. I also loved Adam how he was with Sharon. Much better fit. Although I loved Sharon and Nick and pray Phyllis is off the show soon . I’m so sick of that character and her issues she is on this show so much It’s horrible. They better make Phyllis go to Jail! I wish we find out that Snotty Summer is NOT Nicks baby. Poor Jack I love him. I hope Nikki and Victor act like to grandparents already not a high school wanna be.

I hope Adam’s first episode is to kick the snot out of Victor & Tucker for the taking advantage of Crazy Sharon then also help his brother Nick find a pair!!!

Sharon seems like the most normal person on the show right now!!! If you go through each character one by one think of there history with crimes sleeping around and cheating its horrific. The characters are all so mean and nasty. The ONLY two people I LOVE is Sharon and Billy and most of the time Jack. That’s it!!!

You will love this now I hear through a source he is tweeting he may get a lead in a prime time show! Maybe he should just zip it or has JFP started to clean house. LOL

LOVE SHADAM> I don’t like Chelsea at all. They need a actress we can repect and love. She is a criminal who I can not forgive. I like Adam bad and with Sharon.

I hope they make Adam back to the way he was. The Character has been boring with the pairing of this Chelsea. I loved him with Sharon. They had real chemistry.

I don’t like boring fake Chelsea either. she over acts and giggles like a baby

I’m THRILLED about the new writing team (because honestly, a monkey in a top hat would do a better job than the hack Maria Areana Bell was) and I am so happy that Michael, one of the most vocal and passionate actors, is enthusiastic over the writing changes being made thus far. I, however, hope that the new writers take into consideration Chelsea and Adam’s baby, as well as the popular pairing of ‘Chadam’ itself. I would love to see them keep them together, but make them more of a Bonnie & Clyde duo with their naughty personality traits shining through. As long as Adam isn’t put back with Sharon- I’m happy 🙂

Chelsea should never have children after thowing hers away gross

I LOVED SHARON WITH ADAM!!!!

Chelsea didn’t throw her baby away any more than Sharon threw Cassie away. She gave her baby to his FATHER and his wife who she knew would be able to give him a better life than she could at that moment in time. That’s not called being gross; that’s called being selfless.

If its all Newman’s Im less than thrilled and will be leaving this far behind.

A lot of twitters seem to be totally self serving lately, including that from an actor coming and going sort of demanding stories. Its becoming not about story telling but about egos and I do not enjoy egos

Agree again JT let’s also put Michelle Stafford on the back burner no reflection on the actress but it is overkill!!!

Muhney’s tweets just solidify my original joy for Phelp’s arrival and Griffith’s return. My only hope is that Adam doesn’t turn evil again, and that he and Chelsea stay together! Michael and Melissa have amazing on-screen chemistry and their pairing is one of my faves on the show.

Plus, I hope they reunite Nikki and Jack back together. Jikki topples over Niktor any day!

Im excited but still a little cautious. I hope that nothing happens to the character of Victor. He is what tunes me into y&r since 1987.

Loved SHADAM; cannot stomach the CL/AN pairing so hopefully the new regime will fix that dastardly mistake MAB made in breaking the amazing chemistry MM and SC shared up. Looking fwd to the cohesiveness as well. So many plot points were just dropped and fans get tired of it.

It will be hard to be worse than MAB. She married Victor and Sharon, it will be hard to top that.

How could Adam have stopped loving sharon, It is very difficult to believe it, I’m still a big fan of the YR but, God put them back together.

‘Grand Hotel’s’ Lincoln Younes Cast As Lead In CW’s Reboot Pilot of ‘The Lost Boys’

In intriguing casting news, Australian-born actor, Lincoln Younes (Ex-Home and Away and most recently ABC’s Grand Hotel, where he played Danny) has landed one of the leading roles in CW’s reboot and upcoming pilot of The Lost Boys based on the 1987 movie.

Joining Younes in the other lead roles in the pilot will be Braeden Cook (Industry) and Ruby Cruz (Castle Rock).

According to Deadline the series is said to be about the following: “When a mother and her Gen Z sons, one played by Cook, move to the seaside town where she grew up, they discover there’s a sinister reason the local cool kids sleep all day, party all night, never grow up and never get old. Family bonds are tested as the brothers find themselves on opposite sides of a mythological struggle. Based on the 1987 cult classic that revolutionized how we think about vampires.”

In The Lost Boys reboot, Younes plays Benjamin, the charismatic leader of the gang of vampires in the town. It is a version of the David character played in the movie by Kiefer Sutherland.

The pilot is written by Heather Mitchell and Rob Thomas and will be directed by Marcos Siega.

So, what do you think of a TV version and reboot of The Lost Boys? Comment below.

The entire soap world and daytime community is saddened today with the news of the passing of a true icon and TV pioneer, Lee Phillip Bell.

According to her children, William James Bell, Brad Bell (EP and head writer, B&B) and Lauralee Bell Martin (Christine, Y&R), Lee passed away on February 25th at the age of 91.

They shared: “Our mother was a loving and supportive wife, mother and grandmother.  Gracious and kind, she enriched the lives of all who knew her. We will miss her tremendously.”

Born in Chicago, Illinois on June 9, 1928, Bell was co-creator, along with her late husband William J. Bell, of two of daytime television’s most successful dramas: The Young and the Restless (Y&R), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B).

Bell’s career as a broadcast journalist began in Chicago, where she hosted and produced her own show, The Lee Phillip Show, for CBS TV for over 30 years. A pioneer in the evolution of the afternoon talk show format, Bell was a trailblazer in the exploration of timely social issues and concerns.  Additionally she produced and narrated numerous award-winning specials and documentaries covering social concerns such as foster children, the subject of rape, children and divorce, and babies born to women in prison, to name a few.. Bell interviewed heads of state such as Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Regan; film actors Judy Garland, Clint Eastwood and Jerry Lewis; musicians such as The Rolling Stones and The Beatles; television and stage stars such as Lucille Ball, Jack Benny and Oprah Winfrey; and many other politicians, authors, journalists, fashion designers and rock stars.

She was awarded 16 regional (Chicago) Emmy awards and numerous Golden Mike awards. Bell is also the recipient of the Alfred I. Dupont/Columbia University Award for the special The Rape of Paulette, the first program in Chicago to explore the issue.  In 1977, she was the first woman to receive the coveted Governors Award from the Chicago chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.  In 1980, she was named “Person of the Year” by the Broadcast Advertising Club of Chicago and the “Outstanding Woman in Communications” by the Chicago YMCA.  She also received the Salvation Army’s William Booth Award for her distinguished career in communications and social service. Bell won the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series as co-creator of The Young and the Restless in 1975 and was recipient of the Daytime Emmys’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2007.
