Horrible if true. Doesn't change my decision to stop watching, because the show just plain sucks. But what an appalling thing for him to have done...again, if he did.

Y&R does completely suck these days. And yet it has just been renewed for 3 more years, so it's safe through 2017.

they say all shows have gone up in the ratings including B&B, which stunned me. I guess Ronn Moss leaving the show, really did spike up the ratings since the viewers don't have to watch his Ridge anymore.

It's a shame about Michael Muhney's firing, because I was starting to like Adam again, after all the shit he did the last 4 or 5 years.

IF MM really did grope Hunter on set, then that was definitely grounds for his dismissal. sexual harrassment should not be tolerated, regardless of how popular the actor is. I hope this teaches him not to do anything like that again. That is IF he really did that.

David Tom is set to debut again as Billy Abbott around the same time. I'm glad to see David come back to the role, but I will definitely miss Billy Miller in the role, considering David's Billy was a teenager and now David has to came back to play a darker, shadier Billy. We'll see how well he can do that. David's a good actor, so I think he'll be alright.

Y&R has become plot driven garbage lately. Where are the well written character driven storylines, the romance, and the realistic storylines done from the early 80s and 90s of the show? I want that back again!

Maybe if the writers of today would go back and watch the Y&R clips from the past on YouTube, then maybe they would see what's wrong with the show today, and maybe so many of them wouldn't have been cancelled.

But like many said, JP is your go to girl to hire, if you want people to eventually stop watching your show, as well as getting cancelled.

Michelle Stafford (ex-Phyllis) Is now going to General Hospital. Not sure what character she's going to play, but it will be interesting to see if that character goes toe to toe with Maura West's character on that show. That would be a treat to see!

Elizabeth Hendrickson left the show as Chloe. She will be missed. Apparently she may also be going to Gh to play Robin, considering now Billy Miller is playing Steve Burton's former role of "Jason Morgan."

I saw some scenes of Steve from 2008 and it's amazing how different he looks now on Y&R and so much younger looking.

Steve Burton has always been gorgeous, but he really looks good now on Y&R.

So...I kept watching.

JP is on the case--a character is currently blind (an electrical panel exploded in his face) and being cheated on...

Yes, and she actually took a really bad ATWT storyline and made it worse: the 'cheaters' are his wife and his son. I haven't watched the show since I heard that JP was joining Y&R as a writer. Nothing that I have heard from friends and relatives who still watch on occasion is giving me any incentive to watch again.

The bright spots are mostly in the future: Phyllis is about to wake up and Adam has finally been recast and will return in November. A lot of the storylines right now are... :unsure:

The only good storyline that I've enjoyed so far is the fact that Mariah did indeed turn out to be Cassie's twin sister and Sharon's daughter. Sharon gave birth to twins.

But the ick factor was really JP for me, considering Mariah came down the stairs in lingerie, expecting Nick to be home, but it was Sharon instead.

I predicted this to turn out this way, long back when Mariah was pretending to be Cassie.

Sharon Case, Joshua Morrow, and Camryn Grimes had a great week in this storyline so far. The acting by all of them was oustanding.


As for Neil Winter, yes, he recieved quite the "Noah Mayer" treatment with the blindness storyline. IT was revealed that Neil couldn't see, all I could think about was ATWTs Noah Mayer at that moment.

But it was also the fact that they show never should have killed off Hope Adams, who was Adam's mother, on Y&R. IF anyone could have helped Neil deal with his blindness and give him perspective on it, she would have been the perfect person.


Also, given all the charactes involved in the "Ian Ward/Mariah Storyline, I'm predicting a "Whodunit" storyline. Ian will be killed and everyone will be a suspect.

As Richard pointed out in a previous post, Adam Newman will be back in November. He will be played by actor Justin Hartley.

Gina Tognoni is the new Phyllis. She was Dinah Marler on GL before the show's end in 2010.

What's weird is that my mom and our roommate who watch the show say that it's getting good now. I have to agree to some extent, regardless of the fact that jP is writing it.

Some storylines are good, but the sloppy writing is definitely there. I've noticed it here and there.

And Shemar Moore is coming back as Malcolm Winters, Neil's brother on September 10th and 11th. Thank God for that.

It's about time to see the real Malcolm on Y&R again, so that finally Neil and Malcolm can patch things up between them, considering how things were left between them, after Malcolm found out that Neil fathered Sophia's baby, Moses.

They had Mariah Copeland (Sharon's daughter, and Cassie's twin sister) and this other young girl share a kiss at the end of Y&R today, and this time, Y&R actually showed it!

Color me shocked! But we will see how long this last, because Y&R has always given in to backlash when it comes to gay content.

Maybe this time will be different, but a part to me, will remain guarded, in preparation to be disappointed. Both actresses are very cute, and pretty girls, so hopefully this will attract more of the male teen and early 20s audiences, since there are straight guys that think girls kissing is hot too.

So maybe, just maybe, there's hope for Y&R after all, when it comes to finally getting with the times and doing it right!

Right now, Mariah is dating Hilary's ex-husband, Devon, and the girl she kissed is dating her half brother, Noah Newman.
