217 December 18th, 2013 After Y&R Fan Outcry On Muhney’s Dismissal, Doug Davidson States: “JFP Is Not To Blame … There Is More To The Story!”

Daytime Emmy winner, and one of the most solid cast members of The Young and the Restless for over 35 years, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), took to his Twitter account late last evening, after the events of the day surrounding the firing of Michael Muhney as Adam Newman at the CBS soap opera.

After massive fan outcry at this latest move by the number one soap, and with people pointing the finger at executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps for the decision to axe Muhney, Davidson came to the defense of the show’s current leader and indicated there is more going on that meet’s the eye.

And in addition, Doug attempted to tell his followers that being on a soap opera and in a large cast is a “team sport”.  Over the years, Davidson has seen many a popular actor come and go, but perhaps none this popular with the fans?

Davidson tweeted:  “Honestly, JPF’s is not to blame. She is terrific. Today’s events don’t reflect her leadership. Trust me, there is more to the story. The Young and the Restless is a team sport. Please know we love you guys and we will continue to bring you the best show we can. I’ve got at least 20 castmates that vow the same pledge.”

What do you think of Doug’s tweets?  Do you believe what this longstanding cast member is trying to communicate to Y&R fans?   Weigh-in on soap’s latest controversial casting move!

    Dougs comments are too evasive for me…wonder what his comments would be if he was let go…JFP not to blame for something she could prevent…who are they kidding…if the actor had decided on his own then ok but i dont believe anything these people say…i was just trying to get back into this show but its not working!

    He almost seems to be implying that Michael is not a team player which I don’t feel is true. When Eric Roberts guess starred on Y&R he said that Michael was the nicest and most gracious cast member and went out of his way to make him feel welcome.

    4everDAYS replied

    I think Doug Davidson is kissing up in order to save his own job.

    The grass is not greener at YawneR. You are watching the good soaps. DAYS and GH are all you need.

    Why must Y&R fans continue to reward the butchering when a great show bends over backwards to become greater and nobody cares?

    Happy DAYS are here!!!

    Darlene Smith replied

    I agree that Doug, Melody and Erik should not have said anything. One thing that speaks volumes to me is the fact that Michael said he was stunned and couldn’t speak for 5 minutes. This says to me that he did not do anything worthy of being fired for; otherwise he would have been prepared or expected it. This is either a cost cutting measure or another case of Jill’s nepotism (Steve Burton). It has nothing to do with Michael’s actions. I’ve observed him in other settings and he is fun and gracious. DD, MST, and EB stay out of something that doesn’t involve you. It won’t be too much longer before you’ll be gone because of age…it happens to us all. So shut up!!!

    Harry replied

    I love Doug Davidson, but I really wish he had just not commented at all. I get he has to not bite the hand that feeds him, but this would have been a good time to recognize that silence is sometimes golden.

    Patrick replied

    I wish he hadn’t have either….

    he did this because.. he’s mr. all american pie… the golden boy… emmy winner best actor last year? and we’re to believe ?

    damned right their’s more to this… behind the scenes…

    i’m still so sad! incredulous… that… if this genre is to survive… talent… is everything… Michael Muhney is everything… to that show…

    and to show so little regard… for what works… for fan uproar… to bare minimum… and start over… ??? how? there’s nothing left.. but.. lukewarm… amateurs… wannabe stars on the horizon… what is left of the Vets… are dim and waning… in pulling in the numbers for nielsen or whatever….

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I wonder if this was a cost cutting move…maybe the actors who replace him and Billy are paid less than Micheal and Billy? Just a thought!

    Others involved replied

    Michael said he sad to see a writer go recently. I don’t remember the writers name but many wanted him gone including many actors. Guess what my mom said is true you know when you’re on the way out when your coworkers start avoiding you. Why? Because the don’t want to be next. Doug you know you’re not next but you could have been nicer and not kick a man when he’s down. What you said makes everyone think it Michael deserved it.

    Harry replied

    Others Involved, your mother was right. And I had forgotten that MM had spoken out in behalf of that writer Jill had fired. Now there are some really insidious rumors popping up which is not a surprise considering corporate damage control can be an ugly thing, But we all have to hold on until the truth comes out because so far, we do not have it. I do not take smear campaigns coming from some anonymous source posting on a soap rag to be credible, however, they can incur a lot of damage.

    Mika replied

    He is basically saying Michael’s firing was a “team” decision between JFP and EB.

    Reply

    Jack's Mom replied

    Exactly. Would anyone be surprised that EB had him or anyone else fired or pushed out? He must be jealous that he is not the “star” anymore. Everyone said that Michael was going to be the center of the show. That Adam was going to be the next Victor. I cannot stand any scene that EB is in and I immediately forward through it. Now, I won’t have to because I won’t be watching anyway.

    Victoria replied

    Totally agree. We will fight to get him reinstated. Please sign online petitions on Facebook & please contact CBS to voice your displeasure.

    Something must be done. We are the fans and we matter. When there is a problem human beings work to solve it. U don’t cut your fellowman off at the knees. Someone dug a ditch for MM….I hope u dug one along side it for yourself

    Lisa replied

    Maybe he wouldn’t want to go back. It sounds as if it was a stressful situation, although MM seems like a very strong man and was dealing with it. As far as anything he said on Twitter, that was his own account and should’ve had nothing to do with him keeping or losing his job. Grrrrr Agree with the ditch digging and I bet I know just who should be in the 2nd one, but it won’t happen.

    dj powers replied

    Please rethink letting Michael M leaving. Y&R is number one but I see it falling, people are getting upset with new actors/actress.

    Pat Taylor replied

    Michael was a very important part of the cast. The fans had great respect and love for his character (him). The ‘revolving door’ policy at Y&R is beyond the point of being annoying. It’s like trying to read a novel with random chapters missing’, not worth the trouble of trying to follow it. I guess after all these years, it’s time to change the channel.

    Bubberv replied

    Of course there’s more to this story.

    If that’s the case let’s hear from Michael and then let’s hear from Phelps why she let him go. I wanna hear it. Then it will be up to the fans who to believe.

    Is Davidson implying MM wasn’t a team player? MM has been with Y&R four years and all of a sudden he’s not a team player? Maybe because Phelps is the coach now?

    Within one year (under JFP) I find it extremely odd that Griffith, and biggies Stafford, Miller and now Muhney are all gone. There’s a reason these actors and HW left on their own or were fired this year….all under her. Why?

    Apparently, if you don’t kiss JFP butt, you ain’t a team player and you are eventually gone. If Davidson and the others want to keep their jobs, they will continue to pucker up and smooch….more than ever now.

    Crazy! MM totally embraced his role..and I’m sorry DD is not the person from the show who should have said anything on this issue, he has precious little clout..this makes it sound like AKissing of the worst kind! He knows he has no valid storyline right now..so holding tight to whatever he can is his only hope…IMO …that..is worst kind of ‘team’ player….the way he uses the word Team in his statement makes it sound like a HS clique..and perhaps ..despite the immense talent MM brought to the show..he may be better off without them…he will bring same talent to any endeavor he takes on…and if working for this TEAM is the hell it sounds to be then let’s let him move onto greener pastures and solidify his talents among a Team that matters….

    k/kay replied

    It is getting worse and worse by the minute I have no idea what happened behind the scenes with MM I know he is a passionate sarcastic guy but saying that did he ever physically attack a co worker? I have had business’s for years and trust me on this you ever go down and attack a co worker and you are GONE! Peter Bergman would be the only person I would trust on this! Until he speaks which he won’t because he is too classy I will not believe a word out of anybody’s mouth. Eric Braeden needs to shut up as does DD!

    Jack's Mom replied

    I agree. And wasn’t it more than just Peter that EB had fights with? Didn’t I read he had a fight with Michelle a while back? And wasn’t he part of the reason Victoria Rowell was dumped and has not been allowed back?

    Shame on any Y & R cast member who is using innuendo in their tweets. If you are not prepared to say exactly and truthfully what happened or fear for you job, then shut up. Innuendo is worse that spreading a rumor – It shows that you have no class, are certainly not loyal or a team player. SHAME, SHAME, SHAME on you.

    Sorry Doug Davidson, we love you BUT no matter what YOU or ANYONE else says… Y&R will NOT BE THE SAME without MICHAEL MUHNEY. And I really don’t care if there’s “more to the story” FIX IT, MAKE HIM STAY. Arent these shows about the FANS? Well we don’t want and won’t accept anyone else in this role. And I don’t want to here, give the new actor a chance, blh, blah, blah NO WAY. If JFP isn’t to blame… then she should do something FAST. The show has been unfulfilling since she came & now we here the worst possible news ever – I’m blaming her. I don’t care if everyone on the cast hates him, I don’t care if he’s the most difficult person to work with… I don’t care… MICHAEL WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO BE REPLACED, NEEEVVVVVEEEEER!!! He’s by far the Best male actor & Charecter on Y&R. If JFP isn’t to blame then I would LOVE to know the idiot who made this terrible, unforgivable decision. Whoever you are… OPEN YOUR EYES. Y&R, CBS Or P&G this is the worst decision in daytime especially with all the issues. KEEP YOUR FANS HAPPY… WE DON’T WANT MICHAEL MUHNEY GONE NOW OR EVER. This is totally unfair, uncalled for and the biggest mistake.
    PS- Keep him & put him back with Sharon Case PRONTO (oh right, anther screw up by JFP). Seems JFP is ALWAYS against the fans – it’s sickening. I’m so done if Michael goes… Done Done, Y&R WON’T be worth watching (and I’m sure many agree)!!!!!

    Sing it sister! I only tune in to Y&R these days to watch the brilliance that is Michael. because the show has been such a dreadfully, redundant bore as of late. The writers even managed to make Billy Abbott a drag. The only reason the character of Adam still exists is due to Michael’s ability to rise above the swill he has been handed and breathe life, complexity and nuance into the characterization of Adam.

    Joss replied

    He got fired because he pissed off Eric Braeden, someone who has been on the show long enough to make his voice heard to the higher-ups when he’s not pleased with another actor. He may not be the only one that had problems with Michael, but there’s documented proof online that they were in some tiff recently.

    I, too, am just sickened by this latest action. I don’t give a fig if there is more to this story, unless it is Michaels decision to leave. Get him back, I don’t care what you have to do, this is for the fans, and we are the ones who matter, right?

    Maybe I’m the only one. I liked Chris Engen in the role, felt bad when he was replaced, took a while to get used to this Adam, but honestly, he’s one note, I don’t get excited about his on screen presence any more. I’m looking forward to a different Phyllis and different Adam in 2014. You roll with the flow.

    And Doug Davidson’s comments probably do ring true, sounds like many actors are part of a “team” there, and maybe Muhney wasn’t really a team player…there’s a good reason he was released, and my hunch is we’ll find out soon enough.

    Reply

    Eric Buchanan replied

    I agree with you Joe. I just felt the character took too much of an evil turn after Muhney took over, and Adam became in my mind un-redeemable. BUT, it appears that is the type of “bad boy/man” character a large part of the fan base likes (Victor Newman, EJ on DAYS) I like a character who can actually at times have a heart and have it not seem completely out of character. As for the comments by Doug Davidson, I am thinking that it is all about cutting budget and a big name actor had to go.

    Lisa replied

    Braeden isn’t a team player. He is an ass and a bully, just like Victor. Years ago he punched Peter Bergman in the face. Not Jack, but Peter, the actor. EB is also why I stopped watching Y&R several years ago. It was the 2nd time that had happened. I won’t make the mistake of ever watching again.

    I think he’s only saying what she has probably asked the cast to do, and that is to protect her. She is well aware that MM is extremely popular with the fans just as his character is, and she’d like protection against the considerable amount of backlash she’s about to receive. Doug needs to work, so he’s going to do his part to steer some of that away from her. I think it’s a very foolish move, because like him personally or not, he is bringing fans great Adam Newman, and that’s what we want. She obviously has her own agenda that includes putting her favs Dylan and Avery into the spotlight, while pushing fan favs Adam and Sharon into a corner, but she must remember that along with MM goes a lot fans of this show.

    jaybird369 replied

    Yep…that’s one way of putting it. Get this: Offscreen-wise, I hear that Michael Muhney does not care to associate with Steve Burton (aka Jill Farren Phelps’s GOLDEN BOY). At all. And, whenever he’s filming scenes on the Y&R set, MM talks to and communicates with that arrogant and pompous SB only whenever MM himself has to. One final thing: It seems to me that MOST of the Y&R cast are truly afraid of that fire-breathing soap-zilla JFP…which I think is VERY, VERY DUMB AS HELL!!!!! Jill Farren Phelps aka cold-hearted female version of that evil-ass Hitler!!!!! Beyond sad.

    jp replied

    Agreed. I am not a fan of Y&R, but this woman has her own agenda. If there was more to the story, then share it. Obviously, Doug Davidson has been a loyal and dedicated cast member to this show for years and probably makes a good salary. No doubt in my mind JFP needed a distinguished voice of support from her cast. Where are the others coming to her support? In the end, its a business. After working so many years on this show, Doug doesn’t want to be another casualty. She needed a favor, and he was willing to do it for job security. It keeps him safe…for now.

    Just love Doug, I can see why he is supporting the firing ho, job security. The proof will be in the pudding when one of her favorites takes over the role. Wait and see, it will be one of her premiere ass kissers that takes over. She has ruined every soap she has produced. After she’s done here she can move onto Days and screw them too. I stand by my feelings that she is bringing one of her actors. Someone needs to drive a stake through her heart (if she even has one) to prevent any more of her sh@t from happening. I am so pissed about the Michael firing.

    To say that JFP is NOT to blame is expected because John Davidson wants to keep his day job. The fans who watch General Hospital know the truth, Jill fired a slew of fan favorites and magnified the ones that kissed the a**. She already hired one of bff’s Steve Burton who played Jason Morgan on GH, also Shelly Altman who was a writer on the show too. If anyone looks at JFP history on soaps she has done irreparable damage to many shows she was involved with, if you don’t believe look her up. Jill has her own agenda, sit back and watch Y&R ratings you’ll see.

    Have had a difficult time trying to watch this unwatchable Young and the Restless since the last change in EP….it should be called “Doom and Gloom”.

    As for Michael Muhney’s firing…..I, too, will just call it quits after nearly 30 years of faithful watching. MM is a superb actor who ALWAYS holds my interest with his natural talent and to not see him each week will be devastating. He and Eric Braeden are the show now that Jeanne Cooper has passed. Find a way to compromise with MM…cannot see any one else for this role…..sure there are many fans who will agree.

    Bring back the “Bells” to stir some life into the writing….they know the background better than those who are writing for the show today.

    There’s been a lot of displeasure since JFP joined Y&R. Fans have complained and complained about casting decisions, story lines that were completely bizarre and continued for so long, it was boring in so many ways, new actors seemed to be arriving in droves, many new actors not doing a good job were replaced this year. I am at the point where i honestly don’t care about 1/2 the cast because it’s new, not that great actors with lame story lines. The veteran actors, the ones who’ve been on the show for even 5 -10 years have there place within GC and their characters are solid for fans. Also fans have had to deal with the death of Jeanne Cooper in real life & as Mrs. C on the show, recently with Delia on the show, the exit of Michelle Stafford, the soon to be exit of Billy Miller and now the amazing character, Adam, as created by Michael Muhney. Fans have also had to deal with the plots of Sharon’s mental breakdown, Phyllis being rendered to a nursing home immobile (all the while the powers that be at Y&R are obviously TRYING to find a substitute for Michelle’s great characterization of Phyllis, which of course, is impossible), the entire really stupid Carmin/Lauren/Michael/Fenn SL and now the silliness is continuing after prison times which also was a waste of our time watching whispers over a link fence between Michael & Fenn. Really? And on top, a sudden death of a little girl on the show. Do the writers really think we’ve not had enough of complete disregard to the fans discerning ability to ‘see through’ fluff plots that are merely fillers with the young actors having ‘dating’ problems? Really, that is not the nuts and bolts of this show, not at all. And what’s happened to the entire MS SL, seems like the challenge of writing consistently about a disability is too much for them. Anyway, that’s my take on this. Whoever is responsible for the firing of Michael Muhney, did NOT consider the fan’s and their attachment to Adam within the threads of the lives of the characters in GC. Any replacement of Adam’s character, and I feel the same way about Michelle’s character, will be a travesty and will not be accepted by any true fans.
    Despite what any other actor says in defence of the show’s decisions, I also feel it is because they are protecting their place to keep their own jobs secure. Any company who fires someone a week before Christmas should really be totally into not giving a damn about their staff whether they are cast or even crew. They really need to feel a sense of shame about this happening now. I hope the outrage continues into January as well and I truly believe it will Twitter has a lot of power and also a petition that has been signed through Twitter links to reinstate Michael Muhney back to where he belongs on Y&R, as Adam. He will be always, THE Adam Newman, for thousands of fans of the show.

    And so this gossiping continues into May now?

    It is astonishing to me how MIchael Fairman now has posted another topic which seems to indicate the hysteria both around the belief of the reasons for firing of Muhney was based on simply words on a page from various media.

    There never was an official statement regarding this ‘gossip’ of any behaviour which,, if anyone considers in ‘normal’ life, would have resulted in a criminal charge. There would have been absolutely no skipping that step dealing with the criminal justice system as California has very strict harassment laws regarding employment.

    Tthere were no charges laid by either Sony, by CBS, by anyone on the cast or crew of Y&R.

    With charges not being laid; with the surge of hysteria regarding the seemingly adopted ‘rights’ of viewers to be thinking as they did for a reason I cannot fathom, were actually stating they had a right to know what goes on in management at Sony. How very ludricious is that?

    This entire situation was totally out of control, fuelled by many who believed words written by others who have nothing to do with Sony or CBS.

    ‘S’ – your statement above is slanderous and as the individual, making that statement and with the lack of first hand proof of your statement; with not knowing one person who works at Sony or CBS, you are making an assumption really based on absolutely nothing and that’s the bottom line here.

    Believe what you want, as on the large scale of the world of business at CBS, your opinion is really not important to them,. Your belief of your statement above is as silly as believing that Billy Miller left Y&R because he wants to run for Governor of California. Which if there was enough media about such an assumption, you can bet there would be hundreds, if not thousands, who would perpetuate such a fallacy allowing such an assumption to snowball out of control. And I will add here I just picked that idea out of the absolutely ridiculous choices I could have made and state here “This is NOT true.” Billy Miller is NOT running for Governor. It’s a pretend assumption with not a shred of evidence.

    Any allegations about criminal wrongdoing are slander and you as an individual need to be mindful of that fact as even though you are only an ‘S’ here, there would be a way to have an inquiry and civil suit against you for slander if ‘someone’ decided to do so.

    And therefore, please do always consider an initial does not give you legal anonymity at all.
    And don’t bother considering to reply and be aggressive with your words because truly I don’t care if you don’t like my words. They are the words of reason which are stating mere fact afar watching the face of mass hysteria on social media based on allegations, NOT actual proven truths.

    Remember in a court, individuals are innocent UNTIL proven guilty. You are neither court, nor a corporate member of CBS or Sony, and merely are assuming which I would ask you is really based on what exactly?

    I would like to add a disclaimer also, so there is no mistaking my words on this forum.

    Please note, my comments on Dec. 18th, above were stated about my own displeasure over dynamics of the show, dynamics of Sony, not actual details of anyone leaving Y&R, merely my personal unhappiness over characters leaving or disappearing, nor details of any firings as there have been other cast members actually fired over the past 2 years too, if you check back. I never made any statements which would be slanderous, as is your statement above.

    Doug’s character doesn’t even have scenes with Adam so I think there is something to his comments. There is not really any potential axe to grind on his part other than his knowing what did go down and realising that the fans have no clue! He has said what he has for a reason and he’s been with the show for many, many years. It sounds not too dissimilar to JM’s comments about the cast being committed to the fans and the show as a team whilst we know that MM isn’t notorious as a team player…..things that make you go ummm….?

    Of course there is more to the story, but to say she is not to blame, is silly. She is the EP she decides who to hire or to fired. It is her choice, no one has a gun to head making her fire MM, unless it is CBS and I can’t imagine them wanting to rid the show of a popular actor for no reason. My theory is the writers probably had some horrible story line set up for Adam and MM refused to do it . It is the only thing that makes sense. It seems to fit DD line about being a “team player”, obviously MM didn’t want to “play ball” and got tossed out for someone who would. As I said last night in different post, I wish I were a fly on the office wall to know the real story here.

    It’s true, we don’t know everything that is involved. But we know there was clearly some tension between Muhney & the “click” on twitter back when the Delia story first happened. Christian & Greg were praising everyone involved in the story line except Michael… on twitter. And Michael made some vague comments about it and not being recognized by his cast mates. Those guys never came back and acknowledged him, and although he apologized for venting on twitter, he took one of his twitter breaks.

    And look at twitter… pay attention who isn’t saying he will be missed. Coincidence??
    On another note, let’s be honest. We all had to know that Adam would have to go to jail or be off the canvas for at least some time given he is the driver that hit Delia. Now if they recast… that is just wrong.

    Exactly and I stopped liking the characters of Michael (who was my favorite) and Gregg.

    I have always liked Doug Davidson…he comes across as a nice guy. But, if there IS more to the story he should have expanded his comments instead of being cryptic. Unless, of course, he is going to see if MM says anything about the reasoning. The comment about “team sport” seems to imply that MM was not a team player. Well, I doubt everyone in the cast is…hard to have a group that large and have everyone’s personalities match.

    I know people have a hard time believing Eric Braeden has enough power to have another actor fired but, I would be willing to bet he was a fly buzzing in the ears of TPTB since it was pretty clear he & MM were not BFFs from some of the Twitter comments made in the past.

    Before all of the fans start screaming that they are going to stop watching the show, maybe they should stop and think how they would feel if Y&R is cancelled. I am sure those same people would be angry at CBS for killing another show. AMC and OLTL fans can vouch for that.

    I think Doug D is a class act. I also respect he came to the defense of his show and EP.

    Unfortunately for Jill Phelps this sort of thing seems to follow her around. We now know from Michael himself that is wasn’t her doing and he has accepted accountability for what he believes was his own undoing. I personally think its sad actors in the industry are kept under such tight gag orders and expected to keep up a facade for the public. In being honest about things in general, he was punished.

    In any event, I think it would be a different story if Y&R were in better shape creatively. The fact that Jill has been on board, going on a year and a half while the show is still seen by many as being in turmoil is not helping her position with the fan base. That coupled with her already shady history doesn’t help. Fact is Y&R is still not a great soap opera. On a good day its very average. Fans are tired of waiting for the show to get its shit together. Many, including me, feel the show hasn’t been on good footing going back to the LML era. That’s a long ass time to keep telling us to be patient while promising over and over it will get better.

    I do want to say that I also find the treatment of fans to be a little duplicitous. Take this weeks overwhelming promotion by CBS and Y&R staff thanking fans for 25 years. Its kind (and appreciated) but the flip side of that card is that fans have been ignored over and over again by HW and EP who shove sorry stories or characters down our throat while back burning the characters we do like. Don’t get me wrong , I don’t think a show should be constructed on only what the fans think, but when the masses are shouting that certain characters aren’t working, for whatever reason and you keep persisting that’s a direct FU to the audience. Y&R was just named Most Disappointing Soap by Soap Opera Digest for the 3rd year in a row. A sentiment not a lot of people disagree with. At what point are these people gonna fucking get it?

    The greats in daytime were held in high regard because they weren’t so committed to an idea that they pissed the fan base off repeatedly. The problem with the LMLs, Maria Bells and Jill Phelps is that they don’t budge once they get an idea in their noggin. Through better or worse they are committed to their ideas and willing to do anything to make that idea stick. Bad MOVE! Dylan is a perfect example of a character the audience wasn’t warming up too and instead of moving past it they compromised the integrity of a veteran character to give the weak one legs. Same for Hilary who caught on with no one but is apparently sticking around. Then there is the vapid Tyler and his overnight love affair with Abby. The list is ongoing. Its time for Y&R to step it up in a big way. We deliver by tuning it (for better or worse). Its the shows turn now to dazzle us.

    Well stated! When they do fire JFP and they will it will be interesting to see how fast Steve Burton will leave the show. He is a farce much like Jill herself. JP is no better as a head writer. The only thing that could add insult to injury would be hiring Christopher Goutman as her replacement.

    Michael made Adam one of my favorite characters on the show. I hope this is something that can be worked out. If you look at Michael’s Twitter history, one of the last tweets he sent before sounding off for the year mentioned something about “not being white, just not ripe yet”. Although, I would think if that tweet cost him his job then it would’ve been removed from his history.

    There may very well be more to the story. Whatever it is, it has to be something pretty serious to dismiss one of the show’s key actors and risk the future of one of its core characters. Again, I hope this is something that all sides can sit down and discuss, but given that it has already led to termination, I’m not sure that can happen.

I’ve never really watched YR full time, but try to keep current with all the soaps. I caught a few episodes of YR recently to check out Steve Burton’s character. I was appalled to see the show has become depressing and painful to watch. Rewriting history is kind of working for GH, but on YR it just seems awkward to have SB revealed as Nikki’s son. Killing YR’s Delia a la GH’s Jake, and sending YR’s Michael and Fen to prison a la GH’s Jason and Michael, is just regurgitating story that was not well received the first time around, so why go there again? Honestly, JFP can hire and fire whomever she wants. GH is just fine without JFP and SB, maybe his friend Bradford Anderson can be the new Adam and GH can hire MM, lol?!

    I think since Doug is not a decision maker, when it comes to casting and firing, he should really keep comments like this to himself. It’s vague and it makes it seem like he’s saying Michael is not a “team player.” My opinion is, JFP is a grown woman….taking on the position that she has means that you have to take the heat when you are a part of making decisions that anger the fans. So you garner no sympathy from me, we you make these type of decisions. Personally, I quit watching Y&R after Michelle Stafford left. She was the main reason I watched the show, so now that she’s no longer there, I don’t care to watch. But I agree with the majority of the comments….the statement that Doug made, makes him seem like an opportunistic butt kisser. I wish Michael all the best. I’m sure he will land on his feet.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that fans are seriously pissed. We were pissed about Delia and she knew she was going to infuriate us with that and basically said she didn’t care.

The man is a arrogant ass and deserved to be fired.I am glad it happened and hope he does not get another job again.Maybe this will knock him off the pedistal he put himself on and teach him some humility.

    I disagree….

    Anthony Geary… happened at the right place in the right time… he sparked and flew “with” Genie Francis… yet.. she’s backburnered.. and left for dead. he rode the dynasty train…

    Luke has been riding… the crest if you will… laurels bannering… how good am I? the writers.. emmy him… and then it’s off to Amsterdam… and gone… 1/2 the year…

    Michael Muhney… a “newbie” of… consummate reel… 4 plus years.. and dedicated himself to the craft of cinema… and Serial is a part of that equation….

    Luke is left… to “whole enchilada’ Traci…. LOL… and that’s all he’s good at

    What does that have to do with him doing a great job of acting the part of Adam? Twitter is for commenting and he has freedom of speech like anyone else. Check out EB’s Twitter, I read here that he is being horribly abusive to his fans. Now that is an arrogant ass. But then HE always has been.

    Don’t know anything about salaries, but maybe some of the biggies (Stafford, Miller) let go this year or couldn’t negotiate with JFP, was because she wouldn’t pay them what they wanted because her pet, Mr. Burton, had to get his salary from somewhere. You can’t tell me Steve’s BFF didn’t go over the top (with perks too) to make sure he came over from GH and now I heard he just signed on again for another year and probably more money to make him stay. Just a thought.

    It’s ridiculous, Michael Muhney is not that great, all this hoopla over nothing. If he’s so great in so many others eyes, I’m sure he’ll find work, especially after the New Veronica Mars movie debuts, he plays a cop in the movie. I hear Michelle Stafford is hiring.

    I don’t know of anyone more outspoken on the show when he sees something he doesn’t like, than Eric Braeden – how many times has he voiced an opinion…no one has fired him.
    There must be more to it – I’m really disappointed, Michael has really made Adam his since he took the role in ’09.

    Get over it people; good lord! I hate the thought of anyone losing their job, but that’s the business, folks. Happens everyday to people everywhere, and it will happen again. Muhney is a great actor and will, no doubt, land on his feet. Y&R will continue to be the ratings leader with, or without, his presence. He said it himself, the show will carry on because it’s bigger than any one actor, or their contributions. NEXT!

    I really look forward to seeing Michael each day, he really knows how to capture your heart. He’s a wonderful actor that can handle any situation given to him.

    “Doug, I so appreciate your speaking up in my defense,” said Jill. “Here, have some more kool-aid.”

    I don’t doubt that Doug means what he says and truly believes it–but that doesn’t mean he’s necessarily right. Who knows what he has and hasn’t been told. He would not be the first to have been deceived by people he trusted and believed in.

    I would have an easier time believing Jill was not behind this if it were not such a familiar pattern on shows she takes over.

    What stuns me is the dunderheaded-ness of it. Having lost Jeanne Cooper and Michelle Stafford this year and with Billy Miller soon to leave, this is absolutely not the time you would want to *voluntarily* get rid of another major player who resonates with the audience. Are they nuts? Have they totally lost their mind? This would be a huge loss no matter when it happened, but to choose to do it now? Amazingly stupid.

    I was actually hoping it would be revealed that Nikki killed Delia. It would have made a more compelling story for the Abbott/Newman family and Nikki would have been off my screen for awhile.

    Do you think Doug or anyone else would come out and say anything else? I love Doug. Seems like a really nice guy. But he’d be insane to say anything against this raving lunatic that is running our show into the ground. She is forcing out everyone. Fans included. My mom, grandmother and great-grandmother watched this show the day it premiered. I have watched since the day I came home from the hospital. I have been raising the 5th generation Y&R fan. I’m done. Michael Muhney is an awesome person. My little boy was being bullied at school. He loves Adam so I reached out to Michael. He called my son and talked to him. He didn’t do it for publicity or money or notoriety or a pat on the back. He did it because he is a kind, humble, caring human being. He talked to my son like he was the most important person in the world. That phone call changed my son’s life. I owe that man so much. I will defend him forever. #TeamAdam #SaveMuhney. And if they want to fire a pompous rear, they should fire Eric Braeden. He does a great job of swearing at and threatening and bullying and intimidating fans. Nice guy.

    EB has had run ins over the years, punched PB and he wasn’t fired. That’s a pompous ass, what civilised person does that their workplace? That in itself wrongly empowers the man. He is no longer the leading man, time to call him into Phelps office for an intimate chat and mention, ” YOU’RE FIRED’ !

    Checked out earlier interviews he gave and apparently EB was disgusted when last yr he received his contract renewal–this is it, take it or leave it, no negotiation! Livid, he went above everybody’s head to MAB and head of CBS, and they resolved it, in other words gave him what he wanted. That my friends is CLOUT!
    Impossible that he didn’t complain about MM especially re their twitter fight, and MM reference to pedophiles & mustaches. ( And his asumptions they were about him.)
    He didn’t need to resort to physically assault, better to hit MM where it counts, the pocketbook. And that took months to accomplish.
    And that end has been achieved.

    Who really wins, Y&R lost their leading man along with co-leading man, the magnificent BM.
    EB can NO LONGER LEAD this show, he lacks leadership skills, has lost respect of a multitude of fans, and hasn’t a natural acting ability, too one dimensional.
    Now Peter Bergman needs to tell the helm, he has the respect and leadership.

    As for future leading men, you just lost your goldmine, the 2 best natural, charismatic actors on Y&R,( & daytime) Billy Miller and Michael Muhney.

    Eric Breaden is to blame he felt threatened by him. He had a twitter war with him hes has been physical as in punching Peter Bergman before hes had a twitter war with Sharon Case. You either kiss erics ass or he will bully u. Guess Michael being a MENSA (top 2 percent of iq chart) is just to much for him to compete with. Anytime a costar twitters things he acts like its all about him and twists it then Hans-Jörg Gudegast aka Eric Breaden turns to his homeland Germany tongue and gets nasty but hes not a US citizen so I guess no foul there when he was 18 he got a free college education upon arrival to the US so hes use to getting what he wants. Wish he wopuld go back to playing the Nazi roles he did b4 he started on ynr. I guess hes feels entitled to bully.

These 2 guys have that talent…not all the actors on this show have that. As much as I love Paul, Michael and Nicholas they just don ‘t have it. Victor and Jack may be the patriarchs of the show but what good are they if you can ‘t keep the sizzle these two guys have?

    The owners want to get rid of soaps because it costs too much money. It is cheaper to produce the inane talk shows. It is all about the money. Plan of attack is to get rid of the fan favorites, make fans unhappy, no one watches and bamm gone is the show for “poor ratings” and up in it’s place are the stupid game shows, talk shows, or reality shows that don’t cost any money to make. You see the advertisers would still pay so why should they pay money to employ all those soap actors????? Get real everyone and revolt. Demand that actors remain employed. This is our entertainment which a good deal of us enjoy. Michael should never have been fired. He brings in the viewers and makes us watch every day. In house fighting, just remind all we are adults and move on. It’s that what everyone else does? It’s time to stand up to the network and employ people, keep them employed, and pay them what they deserve. It’s called Share the Wealth and bring Michael back.

Michael and his talent can do way better. Refusing to butt kiss a la DD suddenly makes MM the bad guy. Let JFP hire her next FOJ and see how she further tanks the show. Ratings have been up lately but sooner or later the holes left by Stafford, Miller and Muhney will be too great to fill and the audience will catch on if they haven’t already. The show is dismal and has no entertainment value. We are left to watch for certain actors and when those actors leave, so do we! Dougie can defend Jill all he wants but this woman has no loyalty …except to her boy toy Steve Burton.

    I too have watched Y&R from day one and for the past year it has been painful to spend my time waiting for the show to get better each day. It used to be such an awesome show with amazing characters. It was the only show that I watched regularly. The new characters are all horrific and I throw up in my mouth every time I have to tolerate EB. And most of the characters in the recent past have been ridiculous too. The great characters are most all gone now with Adam, Catherine, Dru, Brad Carlton, Billy, the old Abby and of course Phyllis. And we are left with the characters that I have always loved with terrible story lines…Lauren and Michael, Sharon, Nikki, Paul, Victoria and Nick. I would rather have little Delia and Victoria’s son back on the show than have to ff through boring Lily, Cane, Devon, Victor, Abby, her boyfriend, John’s ghost, Christine, Dylan. Spice up Jill’s character again, give Devon’s x-girlfriend a good story line, bring back hot Nick instead of idiot Nick, put Noah with a sexy girl his age, drop the ridiculous Fen crap, bring back Phyllis even if it is someone else-that was hard to say-stop the craziness of Nikki with MS and still letting Victor treat her like trash, bring back Danny to steal Christine, bring back Drucilla and Malcolm, the hot Malcolm!!! and fire Victor!!! Stop hiring cheap, mousy actors to replace the beautiful, great ones. Give Chloe a great role again. And give us a gorgeous guy to play Jack’s son and have him be the lady’s man that his dad always was and not with Summer. Tell the truth about Summer and punish Sharon instead of having Adam innocently run over a child. Why did we have to go through horrible characters and story lines like Neil’s last wife and child, Nikki and Paul in a cult, everything to do with Sharon, the stupidity of Jill’s non-inheritance, Summer’s crush on her brother, Hilary, etc…This show has been, could be and should be written much better and the hiring of the producer’s people should be eliminated. Not only are they unfortunate looking but are bad actors as well. There has to be beautiful and great actors looking for jobs! I have invested half of my life in this show and it’s characters. So has my mom. I record it everyday so that I can have one show each night to relax with. We deserve better than this. I don’t care if MM is nice or outspoken or whatever…keep the good actors and characters. You should be begging him and Michelle Stafford to come back. You should pay them the salaries of Lily, Cane, Victor, and all of the newbies put together. It took years to develop Adam’s character from a villain to someone we feel for because of his family mistreatment. MM has had to do some things most actors would not do. And no one can fill his shoes, no one! Stop ruining my show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For a Producer not to realize that there is an amazing actor who brings so many viewers to the show and keeps the viewers because of the actor not because she has a tv soap opera.

    AMEN!! I have been watching since day 1 and I am sick of it. Micheal Muhney is the best by far. I record it and fast forward through half of it. I think the following should go; Nikki ,Summer, Hillary – the whiners Abbey and Tyler, no story line for Neil and Leslie, no story line for Kane and Lily, no story line for Jill and they are about to bring Colin back…what a waste, and the writers have destroyed the character of Billy Abbot. The only story line going on now is Adam and Chelsea. I don’t think Y&R will hold the #1 soap for next year. And it is time to let Eric Braden go. In fact this soap started dying when Michell Stafford left.

    However, that being said, there is NO defending Y&R since JFP. She systematically fired the better actors and employed weak newbies and her best buddies lackluster however they may be. She stabbed history in the back by turning Chancellor over to VIctor and renamed the company. E Braeden is another huge ego and if egos are being fired I would have preferred his to go and have the likes of Stephen Nichols, Genie Francis, Beau Kayser, Jess Walton in full view. Steve Burton is as deadpan and dull as dishwater. Y&R for me is dead. JFP is the instigator of the murder of a once decent program. Sorry to the actors who remain but their stories are just not cutting it nor making me want to watch.

Too many “new” faces that can’t act.
