    A little levity is always welcome on daytime drama but let’s not get too crazy with stunt casting or silliness. This is not B&B!

    RIGHT ON, Iakovos!!!!! It’s bad enough that B&B GOES OVERBOARD with the stunt casting. The last thing that I wanna watch is more of the same on Y&R. NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

    I don’t like all of this guest appearances by these actors who have no connection to Y&R. It pulls the focus away from the show itself. The point of this stuff is to get headlines like this (or, in the case of Julie Chen, a blatant attempt to market another CBS show on Y&R).

    IMO, this type of stuff is NOT helpful to Y&R. I have a high opinion of Sally Sussman and think she has the training and the ability to properly write for Y&R. I am very surprised that this type of stuff is occurring why she is the head writer. (I’m wondering if this type of thing is being dictated from the corporate level and Sussman has no option but to “hold her nose” as she writes a scene for these alleged “stars.”).

    Don’t judge before the story itself has actually played out. Can’t main characters interact with other people except themselves?

    As if Los Angeles is only populated with Logans and Forresters.
