While The Young and the Restless was given the greenlight through the 2017 television season by CBS and announced today at the TCA (Television Critics Association) Winter Press Tour, the President, CBS Entertainment, Nina Tassler, also fielded questions from the press corps and one was about the situation surrounding the firing of popular Y&R actor Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) and the events that led up to it, according to an item from TV Guide Canada’s Greg David.
According to TVG Canada’s David, Nina Tassler made this statement: “I can’t comment on any of the allegations, I can only say that when the producers and Sony [Pictures Television] came to us and said, ‘We want to make a change,’ and they laid out their reasoning why, we supported them.”
Of course, the allegations most likely could have included the two incidents revolving the groping of Hunter King’s (Summer, Y&R) breasts, and Muhney’s on and off set behavior as noted by many of his co-stars, in addition to the possibility of other allegations that have not been made public, in any way, at this point in time.
