Y&R's Restless Style: Just Who is Tucker McCall?

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Clever, clever.  Y&R’s website, just produced their online version on their Restless Style mini-site of the issue of their publication talked about on-air on billionaire Tucker McCall.   Titled: Who is Tucker McCall? The Man Behind the Billions, this hilarious entry details McCall’s legacy, worming his ways into Chancellor Industries, and being revealed as Katherine Chancellor’s biological son and his attempts to hijack everything near and dear to the Grand Dame of Genoa City.   Check out all the images in the feature, that’s all we will say.  Here are some excerpts below!

“We know McCall dons and sheds personas like a Las Vegas drag queen. One minute he’s Nelson Mandela, the next Robert Mugabe, say those who have worked for him or been otherwise drawn into his orbit. Further, some days he’s the Joad who made good, true to his hardscrabble roots, unimpressed by his or anyone else’s success, others, he comes off more like P. Diddy on St. Barth’s.”As for any personal insight into what exactly drives him in his voracious quest to rule the business world, don’t bother; “close acquaintance” is as far as anyone seems to have gotten.  Perhaps that’s because “close acquaintance” is only as far as he’s gotten in knowing himself. The murky circumstances surrounding his origins might have something to do with that. Until recently, all McCall knew was that his parents had adopted him as an infant from a northern Wisconsin orphanage run by the Sisters of Charity where he was left by his reportedly unwed mother. More recently, new facts have come to light about McCall’s origins, and that information and his emotional response to it have been the subject of speculation in both the Business and Gossip presses.”

“But while he takes delight in building businesses, McCall reportedly takes equal delight in butchering them. More than a few CEOs (and thousands of workers) have reported to work on any given Monday only to find via pink slip that over the weekend, their seemingly-safe employer’s been hijacked, stripped and sold for parts faster than a broken-down Bentley on the Cross Bronx Expressway with McCall pocketing the bulk of the proceeds. Which is why his interest in Chancellor Industries, parent company of beauty behemoth Jabot Cosmetics, has so many tongues wagging and industry observers keeping a very close eye on CEO and founder Katherine Chancellor. If McCall’s plan is to send CI to the abattoir, his initial moves are textbook: CEO, Directors, business press and employees taken completely unaware while he buys up a controlling interest in the target. Next, in a demonstration of almost feline cruelty, a short period of toying with the captured prey, and then, the bloody end. Thousands of losers, and only one winner.”

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
