Y&R's Steve Burton Addresses Dylan/Paul Reveal & Complaints Of "The Dylan Show"!

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

It is going to be a big couple of weeks on-screen, off-screen and at home for daytime favorite, Steve Burton (Dylan) of The Young and the Restless!  On-screen viewers will finally get the truth that they have suspected for months that Dylan and Paul (Doug Davidson) are related, in fact Paul is Dylan’s bio-dad not Ian Ward!

Off-screen, Steve Burton goes for his second Daytime Emmy win on Sunday at the 41st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Beverly Hills as he is nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actor category, and at home, wife Sheree is about to give birth to the newest addition to the Burton clan!

Burton talked with TV Guide Magazine about the plot twist of Dylan being the son of Paul Williams and the ramifications of that and even addressed the complaints that Y&R has become “The Dylan Show” ever since EP Jill Farren Phelps brought the soap superstar to CBS after his long time reign as Jason Morgan on General Hospital!   Here are a few interesting excerpts below!

Burton on the reveal of Paul and Dylan being related:  “This is whole new territory for those two and for many others. You’re going to see how this affects Paul and Nikki, and Paul and Christine, and Victor and Nikki. Do not miss these episodes, people!”

Burton how people comment that Y&R has become “The Dylan Show”:  “Listen, without the fans we don’t have a show. I understand their frustrations and I know that they don’t necessarily like change. I guess maybe my coming to Y&R upsets people because they don’t really know the truth of what happened.  What you and I both know — that GH didn’t make a deal with me. And that’s the whole truth. My contract was up and they didn’t want to play ball and make it work. At the time, I didn’t want to throw anyone under the bus over there but of course, as soon as it was announced I was going to Y&R, people thought the whole thing was planned by Jill from Day 1, which it was not. I vividly remember my manager telling me how ABC Business Affairs had called him to say, “Hey, is Steve going to Y&R now that Jill’s over there?” And my manager said, ‘No, he wants to make a deal with you! Quit dragging your feet. Make a deal.’ But they wouldn’t.”

So, what do you think of Paul being Dylan’s bio-dad?  Better than having it be Ian Ward (Ray Wise)?  Or, would you have preferred it to be Ian?  And are you off the mindset that Y&R is truly “The Dylan Show”?  Share your thoughts below!

As a GH fan I hate the whole way this has
played out.Seems the story has changed
A bit.I thought originally he just wanted a break
and to be in Nashville.
It does seem odd is loyalty to JFP.But Y&R
Can keep her.
I was such a SB fan or really I guess a
Jason fan..I do really miss him but
Think it was sad for his fans when he joined
Y&R.but it’s his life..I never watch CBS
soaps and that won’t change for anyone.
Jmo..

He said from the get go that they didn’t make an effort to make a deal. Not sure what people expected him to do. He said he wanted to spend some time with his family. GH didn’t want to make a deal so he moved on. I was really bummed to. But, I was glad to see him on Y&R so at least he was still on my screen

I remember it differently. He wanted to move to Nashville. That’s why everyone was so shocked at the YR job. We’re really just splitting hairs, though, because he’s gone from GH either way.

Your post caught my attention so I went and looked up the interview with Michael Logan/TV guide he did when he left GH. He was wanting to leave had sold his house he wasn’t negotiating blah, blah & blah. Then the last question was about JFP being at Y&R would he go over there he said I will never say never because I could show up there. Maybe next time he might want to go back and read his old interviews so he can keep his story straight. When he is gone and JFP I will start watching again but… Read more »

Yes, but in this interview he said at the time he couldn’t throw anyone under the bus at the time so he had to zip it. GH did not renew his contract, didn’t even try and negotiate with him leading validity to the contention that they also didn’t play ball with Tristan Rogers and Kimberly Mcculough. Burton would have stayed had they negotiated a new contract with him. Instead they did not and meanwhile, they did what the could to ruin the character of Jason so 1. Fans would not mourn his leaving the show and 2. To make room… Read more »

Dullan is the worst. I knew when JFP brought him in he’d eat the show alive. I’ve never seen one of the most untalented actors get this much screen time in my life. It’s disgraceful that CBS and Sony have allow JFP to turn Y&R into absolute trash. They need to send both Dullan and Avery off to the great cook-off in the sky. Can’t stand either of them.

I enjoyed Steve Burton on CH and I enjoy him on Y&R. Y&R was due for a refresher of characters and stories after so many missteps in the MAB era. Is everything the JFP team done good? No. But there is progress. I like Paul and Nikki together very much, more than Victor and Nikki. Seeing them more on the screen is a plus for me. The idea of Paul and Christine worrying about a baby now seems a little farfetched. I know there are late-in-life pregnancies but really? I am weary of Victor and would appreciate a change in… Read more »

Oh crimminy – The Dylan Show ? Really ? How silly is that ?
I’m thrilled that Paul is Dylan’s bio dad.
Paul and Nikki have a long standing history – and the reveal that they now share a child (an ADULT) one at that ….doesn’t mean it has to be a threat to Victor or Christine.
I would think that Victor would be more comfortable with Paul being Dylan’s dad than evil Ian Ward.
Nikki is already establishing ties with Dylan ,this gives Paul another shot at parenthood……bonus if he and Christine wind up pregnant.

As far as dull goes, imo, neil is the dullest person on the show, along with the perpetually horny Cain and the perpetually snotty Lily. I am so sick of their faux paris scenes I could vomit.

JFP did indeed ask MM to come back to the role of Adam Newman but to put it politely, he told her to take her offer and shove it. This is why the show has ramped up it’s efforts to recast the role of Adam Newman in the last week or so. Still no word on who will be playing Adam.

I love the fact that Paul is Dylan’s bio dad. I don’t think it’s the “Dylan” show at all. I think there is a pretty fair balance of all the characters although most of the s/l’s are totally boring.

Indeed! He is a great guy. Doesn’t deserve the nasty coments. GH treated him badly. He’d been there for 20 years and deserved some consideration to work a few less days to be with his family. I started watching UR as soon as it was announced and am so glad I get to see him. If you think he and Avery are boring, don’t blame them. Blame the writing.

DidjaNoit
Guest
DidjaNoit

No, I think the main reason people think it’s the Dylan show is because it has been so much “the Avery show” for the past year, and Dylan was made her boyfriend. And before Avery, it was Chelsea. I wish tptb would let this story be about Nikki, Paul and Dylan, and leave Avery out of it, although I know they won’t. I know Jessica Collins/Avery has fans, but I’m not one of them and she bores me.

I don’t think the Dylan show is about screen time, it is about the fact this new character is being connected to everyone on the show. He is Nikki’s and Paul’s son which ties him to the Newman’s, Nick, Victoria, Abby etc. He is tied to Williamson’s now. He is tied to Ben, who only came on the show as his friend and now is thrown into front burner status; to Avery which ties him to all their stories and connections of that character such as Phyllis and Summer. And now with Paul he is indirectly tied to Lauren and… Read more »

To Mary SF, if you’ve never seen a character be integrated into the show the same way as Dylan, you must have missed when Avery joined Y&R. She came on and was immediately connected to Victor, Sharon and Adam. Then Phyllis, Daniel and Summer became her family. She was involved with Michael Baldwin and Leslie. Was given a connection to Nick and Faith, then Dylan. Everyone loves her, and she’s so great we had to watch endless shows featuring her cupcakes and cooking show! Avery has been front burner since her arrival in 2011. Yes, Dylan has been woven into… Read more »

There’s a difference between not making a deal, and being asked for things that can’t be worked out no matter how much they want to keep an actor. I suspect there were rumblings of him going to Y&R or the manager wouldn’t have been called and asked. Probably put out there to hopefully get better leverage to get what he wanted. Didn’t work. I was really tired of the one dimensional character of Jason anyway. I’m hoping with a new actor they will send Jason in a new direction (or should I say old direction) of Jason Quartermaine.

I don’t see how they can just change Jason’s personality after all these years unless they totally make him Jason Q again (which I honestly have no desire to watch).

KansasGuest
Guest
KansasGuest

“Old” Jason was planning on becoming a doctor & following in his parents’ footsteps before his accident. While recasting Jason may bring some new opportunities, the chances of him taking over the Q’s medical mantle @ GH have long passed. I really don’t know what GH will do with Jason if he’s brought back, other than have him throw a wrench into the romantic lives of Sam & Elizabeth. It’s not like they need more romantic male leads @ GH. There is an overabundance as it is.

I dont blame him, per se. I blame that showruiner JPF.

I think he has been pretty gracious and seems to be a decent guy, I just dont like the character and the way he is being anchored to the canvas.

Maybe JFP should have played ball with the real talent that walked out the door in the past year and given a less is more approach to Dylan.

Jimmy
Guest

Completely agreed, GH didn’t “play ball” with Burton, but JFP has done the exact same thing with Y&R’s top talent. Billy Miller is a prime example. He wanted a few changes made to his contract and Y&R didn’t offer them to him, which forced him to walk. Since then, the role of Billy has been a trainwreck in terms of casting because David Tom doesn’t fit the role anymore and now a new guy is coming in when all we want is BM back. As far as “The Dylan Show” goes, I think Y&R is pretty balanced in terms of… Read more »

So he never really did address the issue of him being on the screen so much.

Who cares why he left GH. The issue the fans have is the amount of unfair screen time he has. That was the question posed…and NOT answered.

He IS on less these days, but Phelps made him her priority since day one.

This article is linked to the original one. Did you read the full article? Cause he directly said he’s not on that much and that is why he doesn’t understand why people say the Dylan show. He said that it was more understandable when people called it The Jason show on GH. Furthermore, he does not dictate script and lines. Why are people in his face? Go complain to JFP.

I believe most all knew Paul was Dylan father from near day one..
Y&R is very obvious with their plots.
Seems the fans usually know months ahead of time what comes to be ..

also to mention-
It was mainly ABC, not RC or FV that did not OK the deal SB wanted..

believe it or not, RC and FV are not totally in control of GH, ABC is.. 🙂

I like Steve Burton on Y&R. I don’t think it’s the Dylan show. It’s most of the rest of the show that’s a problem. All the un-interesting characters and too many of them. Not to mention, just like GH didn’t make a deal with Steve, Y&R did the same with Billy Miller. I can honestly say, they truly, let the fans down in a BIG way with that one. Between not being able to enjoy Villy anymore and what would have been a great storyline between Billy and Victoria, plus numerous boring characters/actors, it is turning this show into something… Read more »

Glad he’s having so much fun on the show–that’s what it’s about. The actors have all the fun and the viewers none. I don’t think it’s the Dylan show, but there have been times when a little goes a long way and I don’t mean that in a good way. I have fast forwarded through a lot of Dylan/Avery scenes because they are so inane. The cooking story added nothing. I guess it was so they could get to Paul being shot and the sire story, but surely there had to be a less painful way to get there.

Ha, Mo–your first two sentences made me chuckle. I do agree, however, I do not see this as the Dylan show at all. When Burton first arrived in Genoa City I was really enjoying his new role as Dylan. He showed he really does have the acting chops. He was poignant and touching playing an ex American soldier suffering from PTD. Moreover, he got to wear color and he looked great! I thought he enjoyed great chemistry with Sharon but for some reason the writers and maybe JFP were determined to pair him up with Avery. Sometimes writers and producers… Read more »

Am I the only person who finds him very cocky? I’ve never been a huge fan of him as an actor, but ever since he left GH and went to Y&R, he, as a person, has come off very negatively, too me. Even in this article, when asked about complaints of it being “The Dylan Show” because of his constant airtime, he throws it back on the fans saying that “they just don’t like change.” No, change is fine, change is good in moderation, not when a character is suddenly everywhere, all the time.

I don’t believe Steve Burton as to how and why he moved to Y&R. That was the plan between him and Jill all along when his contract came up for renewal. BUT, I no longer watch Y&R so I don’t care what Steve Burton does, I think he’s dull and not a very good actor. Why he is even nominated for a Emmy is beyond me, what did he do to deserve the nomination? I see Jill’s hand in this. I refuse to watch the Emmys but I will be hoping Steve does not win.

I stopped watching Y&R after Delia’s pointless death. Now I might watch ten minutes a month at the most. And every time I tune in, without fail, it’s Dylan standing around, looking like an idiot.

The biggest problem with this character has been the show’s insistence on making him a paragon of perfection from the second he appeared. He’s a war hero. He’s got mad carpentry skillz. He saves little kids lost in the woods. He marries grifters who claim he put a baby in them. He rebuilds kitchens for chicks with the bi-polars after a tree falls on their roof.

I’d rather watch the “Dylan Show” as opposed to the “Winters Show!” Steve can only act out what is written. I see the writing on the wall with JFP. If they do fire her, I wonder if Steve Burton would want to stay on Y&R?

“You don’t have half as much talent as these writers..” Really? Maybe you don’t, but I’m fairly certain that many of us who have been long time Y&R fans, could write a WAY better show than the current regime is constantly putting out. I would love to, actually! Tell CBS to give me a call and we’ll return to this discussion in a few months. 🙂

You are absolutely right. It was the fans who insisted that Dylan should be Paul ‘s son when JFP was trying to cram Ian Ward down our throats. Glad JFP relented and gave this to the fans as this is the only story helping to stem ratings from bleeding down below the 4 million mark. But alas, she chose again to put Paul in a hospital death bed so the fans have to endure another agonizing dying storyline. And watch more vets crying relentlessly. Aaaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhhhh!

There is a difference in what Miller wanted and what SBu wanted. What SBu wanted sounds more like a steady schedule that allowed him to work in LA and have time in Nashville. What Miller wants/wanted is a schedule that producers and writers can’t necessarily plan aroundn. If Miller gets a job and can’t be on set that throws a major wrench in the works especially if the show tapes only 4 to 6 weeks a head. As a producer you can’t plan long term for a major character if he wants to pursue other projects. It isn’t practical. It… Read more »

GH had become The Jason Show before Burton left, so it’s not surprising the same thing is happening with his character at Y&R, especially considering who’s running the show. I don’t miss him on GH. His character had become stale and way over exposed. So even though people are still talking about how and why he left, personally, I think it was for the best. GH is doing fine without him.

I honestly don’t think it was a matter of money. I think why it didn’t work out with General Hospital and DID with Young and the Restless is because Steve was used to having some of the highest episode counts, far above most of the other GH actors, which led to criticism of it being “The Jason Show” (deja vu!). But when the current GH regime took over, I think they told him they wanted a more ensemble feel and he’d no longer have that screen time, where as, his good friend Jill Farren Phelps, who always gave him that… Read more »

I don’t think that Steve left General Hospital for a lack of money. I meant that I think The Young & The Restless has created “The Dylan Show” because of the amount of money they are paying Steve Burton. I’m sure they are paying him well because he is very popular and talented. They want to make good use of the money spent. But, who knows really? Not me! HA!

I don’t know how they can say it is the “Dylan Show”. I started watching Y&R only to see Steve Burton and it seems I don’t watch the show more than I watch it.
I am beginning to wonder why they brought him over because all I’ve seen him do is pour coffee. I have been very disappointed with the lack of story. I’m hoping this will all change.

To all those bashing Mr.Burton, he is a genuinely good guy. I know multiple people who have met him & have nothing but good things to say about him. He made a career choice and by no means is Dylan ruining the show. In fact, I recently met Sharon Case and she said that Steve is one of the kindest people she has worked with. So, before you make assumptions about him, try to consider there are two sides to every story.

I’ve been hanging in faithfully to/with ABC soaps since the end of ’68. I’ve watched SB grow up on GH from a young guy of 20/21 to a man in his 40’s, and always admired how well he acted the part of Jason Morgan. It is to his credit that he could take his character from the extremely bright and sweet character who had a calling to become a Doctor, to a brain- damaged kid who divorced his past and became an emotionless(for the most part) enforcer to a mob boss. I think SB had the perfect right to make… Read more »

I am just happy he never showed up on Days or I would be hitting the FF button. Dylan is a boring, character played by a one dimensional actor.

He was CROWNED KING of Y&R. The Genoa City palace was already full of princes and a couple of kings. They did not need King Dylan. He did nothing to improve ratings, and minus Michelle, Michael, Billy and Liz, things are going downhill.
We loved the characters we know and have, this newby wasn’t needed.

Chaz…Y-E-S…THANK YOU!!!!! You are so RIGHT ON!!!!! More and more (real-life and all), watching some of my neighbors FIGHT (verbally or whatever) offers WAY MORE EXCITEMENT than watching that blah and bland Dylan…LOL!!!!! I’ll take watching my certain neighbors THROW DOWN AND ALL over watching that dull-as-dirt Dylan ANY DAY…LOL!!!!! And…whenever Dylan The Dullard starts huffing, puffing and stomping all over Genoa City (aka the show), I keep pressing (over and over again) the Mute button on my DVR remote control until he stops talking…LOL!!!!! Yep.

Take care, Chaz. Peace.

Why is the dude still talking about Gh?? Hmm is he upset Gh is gold with out him? Or is it because Biller Miller is about to show him what a real emmy supporting actor is all about? Me thinks both.

I have enjoyed Steve Burton’s performances on BOTH “General Hospital” and “Young and Restless.” I liked his teamwork with both Sonny and Spinelli on GH, especially…….and go ahead and bash me, but I enjoy seeing him with Avery, Nikki, and even Victoria on “Y and R.” I certainly don’t care for everything that’s gone on lately on “Young and Restless,” like the awful Delia storyline, but the Dylan stuff is OK with me…….I even like his friendship with Stitch! Sometimes when I watch Stever Burton on Y and R, I have to wonder if he’s glad not to be playing… Read more »

Sally I agree with you completely. You know all the bashing about Dylan and his acting abilities is getting a bit boring also. I have watched Y&R since it first started and there have been actors and actresses that you just could not stand, but that was their role’s. You know right now this storyline with Victoria and Billy and Stitch makes me sick and I would love to reach thru the screen and shake the devil out of her LOL, but its a role. She is so caught up with what Billy done that she forgets what she is… Read more »

More and more, Y&R is getting WAY TOO RIDICULOUS…CONSTANTLY throwing that dull-as-dirt Dylan onto our TV screens 24/7!!!!! BLECH and more BLECH!!!!! As an example (or whatever), I wish that Y&R would bring Carmine back. Hey…to me, Carmine is WAY MORE ENTERTAINING than Dylan!!!!! And…Marco Dapper is SO WONDERFULLY EASY on the eyes…H-E-L-L-O!!!!! Bottom Line Here: I’ll gladly watch Carmine The Crazy/Cuckoo Bartender over that Dylan The Dullard ANY DAY…LOL!!!!!

I love the show Young and the Restless. I think its fantastic that Paul and Dylan are related. It will make a great story line.

I love the young and the restless!! I just don’t want Paul to die. They just killed Delia off, Katherine Chancellor is gone!!! Now to take Paul off is going to cause them to lose me as a fan!!!! They don’t have to compete!!! Too many people, male & female fans love this show. I like the fact that Paul is Dylan’s dad but don’t kill him off!!!!
