709 January 30th, 2014 TODAY: The Final Y&R Episode of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney!

Courtesy/MuhneyTwitterFanPop

As previously announced, today January 30th, 2014 is the final airdate of two of the most popular actors ever to appear on the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless.  Of course, we are talking about Billy Miller (Billy) and Michael Muhney (Adam).

Viewers have witnessed over this week a burgeoning showdown between Billy Abbott and Adam Newman over Billy’s discovery that Adam was the hit and run driver who killed his little girl, Delia months ago.  Billy has confronted Adam with a gun at the site where Delia was killed, and as we head into Thursday’s episode, Billy reveals he has plans for Adam that don’t include taking him to the police station!

In a preview clip from CBS.com on today’s episode, looks like Adam is driving somewhere and Billy is holding a gun on him!   This won’t end well probably for either character!

What we do know is that its’ time for fans of Y&R to say their farewells to both Miller and Muhney who left the show late last year under different circumstances.  Miller chose not to renew his contract and Muhney was fired.

Watch a preview for today’s episode after the jump! Then let us know what you think will happen?  And, if you watched the episode, let us know what you thought of where it left the characters of Billy and Adam! Remember, next week David Tom returns to the role of Billy Abbott on February 3rd.   Will you miss Mr. Miller and Mr. Muhney?  Let us  know!

    The character of Billy will not be the same. I didn’t like Tom before and I doubt that it will be any different this time. Sorry to see Billy go, wish him luck in his endavors.

    I agree, Tom never fulfilled the role for me I’m nervous as to how this will fit in the weeks to come. I never had a care for Muhney since the day he picked up the role. I think past “Adams” suited the role better. Should be interesting.

    … Tom deserves a chance I suppose. But he never seemed right in the role to me either M. I hope he’s grown as a performer or he’s really going to be out of his depth with this role.

    He will look like Victoria’s little brother. I don’t see them in romantic scenes the Billy Miller was with the character Victoria. Maybe they are going to replace Victoria with more immature looking actress?

    Tad replied

    Tom is definitely too young and looks young. I don’t think this is a good move for the show. Victoria needs someone strong.

    Denise replied

    I’ve been watching for 35 years. I named my daughter “Ashley” of course after Ashley Abbott. I am very disappointed that Billy and Michael left. I don’t think that the new actor for Billy fits well with Victoria. I didn’t know that Adam’s character wouldn’t be back. Or if he does come back, I wasn’t aware that another actor would be playing his part. They’re both great actors. I defiantly watch the show for the actor’s, because everyone knows that the writers need to be replaced. I will still watch, and hope that the story lines improve.

    Nobody is going to stop watching. Please these two did not start the show and they will not end the show

    I am sorry, but you are so wrong.. I will not watch the Y&R again.. The only part of the story line was Adam & Chelsea. And w/o Michael Muhney the show is not worth watching. There are other shows on TV!! Whenever a main actor is replaced by another actor.. It is never the same. Should have worked it out with Michael Muhney.. I wish Michael and Billy the very best. And hope to see them on TV soon!!!

    RL replied

    You are wrong. Somebody will stop watching- that somebody being me. If anyone needs to be fired from the Y+R- its the writers and those that sit in the executive chairs. Without Adam and Billy- both whom were in scenes with Jack…the story line is BORING.
    I’m recording Ellen now on NBC.

    Mary replied

    …. I know you’d like to – but you can’t and don’t dicate the viewing habits of others. I suspect there will be some loss of viewers as has been the case in the past when other popular characters have left any daytime soap or primetime offering. Will it end the show – most likely not. But it is the only option viewers have when not happy with the direction of a daytime or primetime series.

    tess replied

    i definitely won’t watch the show again..those were the best two roles…the rest …well… boring…

    Kathryn Crum replied

    But they made it very interesting, and I will miss the Billy Abbott, no one can replace him, and Adam needs a happier ending, I just don’t think he was treated right just when he was trying to turn his life around, I hate it when they keep replacing the Character, except The picked a good one when the picked Victoria that was a good choice and blended with the family better.

    Sandy replied

    I’ve been watching on and off for 20 years, more on now that there is DVR. I loved Adams character for the flawed human being that he was and for the way he wanted to change for his son. The whole story line was sad. I think the show is really boring without those story lines and really boring for losing such great characters. I’ll be watching where they go and I’m looking forward to watching a new show.

    Connie Williams replied

    Some people will definitely stop watching the show. I will be one of them! A few weeks back my husband shook his head at me like he couldn’t believe I was watching such drivel. I told him, ” I know the writing is just awful on this show, but they have a few good actors, I really enjoy. Watch this guy. He is so good. He is the main reason I watch.” He watched Micheal’s character with me for a minute and agreed that he was really good. When his character was killed off, they killed off my reason for watching! While the show still has 2 to 3 remaining quality actors, the stories are so bad, I just can’t make myself watch anymore. For Adam, I could even make myself watch Victor Newman, and that’s saying a lot, because I can’t stand that character! There are not enough adjectives to describe how truly horrendous it is to watch that ridiculous character!

    Tad replied

    I have watched for 20 some odd years. I will miss both characters but will keep watching. I loved Adam. I could always side with his character.

    Matt D. replied

    Sharon and Adam were a romantic true love affair. That will be missed. Not please with his role these day and that scarf burning and now leaving Billy in the car shameful what they do to certain characters. Dru needs to return and Victor has become disgracful

    Billy left Adam in the burning car!

    Joanne replied

    OMG! No. The Sharon Newman character needs to go. I am so tired of “Sharon” and if by some chance MM returns, the two storylines should never intersect again. And, the day that “Dru” re-enters the show is the day I turn off Y&R forever! I think it’s highly ironic that Billy goes out of his mind with rage at Adam who accidentally killed Delia and “left her there to die on the side of the road” and then he purposely walks away from Adam trapped in the car that then blows up, leaving him to die on the side of the road. Billy had intent, Adam did not. And, now we’re supposed to watch a weak actor struggle with “Delia’s death and Adam’s culpability” for weeks/months. Nope, I just can’t do it. Sadly, while arguing that we should support the show and other actors (earlier this week) I now feel as though I’ve just gotten fed up. There are characters that I just can’t stand, storylines that are stupid, annoying and insult our intelligence and actors who can’t (act, that is). Melody Thomas Scott, Amelia Heinle, Josh Morrow and a few others (“Abby”, “Dillon”, “Avery”, “Chelsea” and “Jack”) I’m sorry to say that I may have just reached the end of my Y&R rope. You guys were great, including Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. But, you all aren’t in enough good storylines anymore to keep me watching. Since you tape 6 weeks or more ahead of time, there is no chance that by Friday you will unravel this huge mess you’ve made. But, I’ll give you until Friday anyway. After that, I’m afraid that I just can’t give you an hour a day anymore.

    Tad replied

    I too am not pleased with the burning of the scarf but somehow I think Kelly killed Dee Dee so I will continue to watch. I think everyone is too hard on Victor.

    Katie replied

    I cannot believe Adam was fired. For what? I loved his acting!! I hate when they bring on new actors in the old roles and we are suppose to care about them like before.

    mary ann replied

    I guess I am way too slow. I knew the voice of Billy off and all that blood masked things, BUT this Billy needs to GO. It is a sacrifise for such good Actors to stay and play our Favorite Actors. Job offers must be plentiful. Who can blame them? So I will Turn ff and Do Netflix in that time slot. Adam was unique and under rated. Good luck you guys. THE new direction of a show I have watche from month one is over.

    Will not be watching the young and the restless anymore either not after bill and Adam are gone not the same sorry

    Billy is such a super actor honeslty. This new guy cannot reach even hight of real Billy Miller ankle Happy that Victoria is getting divorce from this “tom whoever’ no chemistry between them whatsoever. Also too bad…because Adam & Billy held the show in high standart. I loved Adam’s acting – same as Billy’s acting performance…..they were so natural and kept us wanting more from them. Oh Billy why did you NOT sign the new contract?
    Y/R are sinking as fast as Titanic without you two.
    And that bloody Sharon ?????….OMG what is that imbecile still doing there & how long is she going to keep the secret from Nick. Unbelievable, she is the worst actor there….Vicki..the best, since Michelle/Phyllis left.

    I really enjoyed them both. I’m just upset that Adam got blamed for everything & really never had a chance. Doesn’t sound like he got a chance for real either. As for Billy I really liked him too. They just always made him to be such a lousy husband. Not cool all the time. The last thing for me was when you made Adam hit Delia, not cool either. He got the bad part always. I quit taping Y&R after that. He needed to have a chance. Just like he did now. I love them both & I hated to see them go. I don’t watch much anymore, maybe someday.

    Loved Billy who’s the character now, don’t love billy who’s coming in brand new to take his role. He sucks!!! he looks and he is a terrible actor. He’s no Billy Miller.

    Michael Muhney and Billy Miller should get Emmy’s for their role. I have been watching the show since I was 8 years old and now I am 43 eeks. I loved these two characters. They were exciting to watch. Two best actors. Now I am disappointed. Very…. They should at least bring michael muhney back somehow, I don’t think they should have fired a very good actor. Maybe suspension or some fine. Not being fired off the show. That’s not well thought out. He was amazing.

    ALLEDGEDLY did something wrong.

    These two guys are/were my favorites on the show. Both extremely good actors and will go on to better things I am sure. I will miss them greatly. I am really irritated about this and at this point don’t care to even watch Y&R again. That is sad because I have watched for 30 something years. Bring Michael Muhney back!!! The show should have room for both him and Eric Braeden. I have doubts as to whether he did what he is accused of!?

    I have been watching Y&R since 1987, and with all of my life responsibilities, I have only watched the show sporadically because I just didn’t have time and wouldn’t bother staying up late to watch the DVR show. This past week, however, I made it a point to watch each and every show. I fast forwarded to the parts with Billy and Adam because the acting was phenomenal and these two characters are my favorites. I have not researched the details of why they are leaving the show but am disappointed the the powers to be could not find a way to keep two pivotal actors in the declining age of the soap opera. Best of luck to Billy Miller and Michael Muhney; I have not doubt they will travel to prime time success and the soap opera will crash and burn, especially with such poor leadership.

    deborah foster replied

    I am very upset that Michael Muhney was fired and forced to leave the show. He embodied that character completely and even if Adam miraculously survived that crash and fire and they bring on a “new” Adam, it will never be the same. No one but Michael Muhney can do that role. I just wish they could have worked something out to keep him on the show. I know what he “alledgedly” did ,and frankly there’s two sides to every story. I would much rather see the actress who plays Summer go. She brings very little to the character and the show and if they killed off het character it would be no great loss. Perhaps she’s related to the creator, producer, director, or writers of the show the way some of the other actresses are. As for Billy Miller, they are foolish to let him go especially if it was over a contract dispute…some actors are indispensable. These two, Michael Muhney and Billy Miller are. I’ll not be watching your show after this debacle unless you bring these two iconic actors back.

    Billy Miller will prob show up in the Bold and Beautiful. They are the #1 show for shuffling their characters from one to the other. After all, they are both created by the Bell Group!

    Rosie Johnson replied

    Billy Miller, Michael Muhney great actors. Not pleased with new Billy. Try a stronger actor. Michael Muhney is a great actor. Bring him back if possible.

    Shari replied

    I wholeheartedly agree! I, too have watched for more than 30 years. Michael played the incredibly complcated and troubled Adam with depth not found in most soap actors. As much as you want to hate Adam, you find yourself pulling for him. The “new” Billy is dreadful and not believable in the role. Billy Miller is the ONLY Billy Abbott in my opinion! These two were the only story lines I watched-the rest-fast forward. While I wish them both much success, my selfish side wishes they would RETURN!

    KAREN replied

    No one else can play the character of Billy Abbott as well as Billy Miller. Again, Y&R has let a great actor go because of money. Michael Muhney,also will be missed. Y&R is being ruined and turning off decades long loyal viewers and then when it is cancelled, Y&R big shots will blame the FANS!!

    No way Billy Miller is the only Billy. I am not happy and I will stop watching the show now. I have been watching it for over 30 years. Also, I like the other Adam better too.
    Letting changes like this is the reason the soaps are not making it. CBS pay Billy Miller what he wants.

    I am 42 years old. I have watched Y&R since I was 8. I have seen characters come and go or be replaced. The current changes will bring about a change Y&R is not looking for. Viewers will change their mind about Y&R and you will see numbers drop. I doubt if they receive an daytime Emmy this year. I will miss both characters. I do not wish to see the old Billy return. He was sickening. No one will measure up to Billy and Michael, the current Adam.

    I have been watching off and on for almost 20 years. If they had this old-new Billy back then, the story line wouldn’t have happened with the old Victoria. As I believe they are real life brother and sister (the previous Victoria).
    Either way, he looks too young compared to the Victoria they have now. She wasn’t my favorite at first, but she grew on me next to Billy Miller. For the first time in regards to a soap opera, I am truly upset about this change. I hope Miller reconsiders.

    This is an outrage! Billy Miller is the only one that can play his role! No one can ever take his place! Michael was a very good actor and will be missed. Maybe you can bring back a familier face for Adam. The last character that played Adam was a good one.

    Kim replied

    I have been watching Y&R for 35 years and have not missed an episode. I just happened to see today’s show as it was recording and about fell off the chair. I knew Adam was getting fired due to being accused of “getting fresh” with Summer and some of the other ladies when it was not wanted. I had no idea about Billy Miller leaving. The new Billy is the old Victoria’s brother in real life and how could you bring someone back to play the role of Billy when he was Noah (Victoria’s nephew) many years ago. Y&R fans don’t forget things like that and cannot replace Billy with who used to play Nick and Sharon’s son. I cannot believe that Y&R was stupid enough to let Billy Miller leave. This show will never be the same and someone needs to slap Victor..he is getting rather ridiculous and really annoying. This may be the last time I watch the show..sad!

    I agree so whole-heartedly! I hate that they are bringing this character out of the dustpan and throw him up at the audience as entertainment. Then on top of that we have to watch him simpering around “Summer” the one who allegedly got “Adam” a great actor fired. Too much, just too much.

    I agree! He tries to have the same mannerisms and act like Billy Miller…he is losing and really gives me the creeps too. He looks so much younger than Victoria and I would agree that he looks like her young brother. Y&R has went way downhill fast. If someone don’t get Victor under control, I might just end up slapping the TV soon. Y&R staff is just sad for letting Billy Miller go..he was very handsome and sexy and quite the actor. I am still watching but thank heavens for fast forward on the DVR because some of it is so stupid anymore, I can’t stomach to watch. Since I have watched for over 35 years, it will be hard to stop but I just may because of what the show as become.

    I can’t believe that the 2 characters I most liked are gone! No one can replace either of them on the show, I have been watching the show for over 20 years and can say that this will not help the show. I agree with all the comments recieved on the new Billy – he looks like a kid and way too yourng for Victoria. As for Michael, truely sad to see him go, maybe, the actress should have left instead – it would have been easier to replace her as I don’t find she adds to the show as much as Billy and Adam did. Bad executive decsions for y & r.

    David Tom does look immature in stature as compared to Billy Miller and Amelia but if you really look closely at his facial features, his features appear a little more worn and older than both Billy Miller and Amelia. David’s stature makes him appear younger to some.

    Anne replied

    I want Michael Muhney as Adam, and I hate the new Billy. I agree with others here, he is too young and too doe-eyed to be Billy and his acting sucks! Billy Miller was cocky and confident and had a spark that was electric with Victoria. Why is Y & R firing some of their best? Hate this new Billy, and want Adam/Michael back… oh, yeah… already said that!, can’t say it enough! And, yes, I will stop watching!

    I agree. Couldn’t believe it when Billy got out of the burning car! Really
    thought Adam would survive! The new/old Billy is awful and looks like a teenager. Billy Miller was so good looking and played the part of Victoria’s tormented husband so well. Would even miss Adam if I was going to continue watching but guess I will no longer plan to be home no matter what at 12:30!
    Has always been hard to readjust to character changes but this one is impossible! Have been watching since 1975 – would fold diapers while babies napped. But hey they say it only takes 4 weeks to change a habit -perhaps executives should take note of that!!

    mileaway replied

    I totally agree. It hurts to look at the new Billy. he is not attractive, looks like a kid. Need to shut his mouth and breath through his nose. He is not a fix at all. Victoria looks like she could be his mother. And for Adam, loved watching him, he really played his part on the show. I think these new changes are so sad. It is hard to watch the show anymore. PLEASE BRING THEM BACK

    I’m 47 years of age and I can remember watching y&r since the age of ten with my mom . I am so disappointed in the choice that the writers made concerning Adams character. He fit the role perfectly and I hope they do better with Adams replacement. This Tom character has some big shoes to fill which he is doing a terrible job. He has no sex appeal, he is over acting his role to the point that I just want to skip him and get to the next scene please. He acting is awful!!!!

    Tom just doesn’t suit the role of Billy. We’re going to miss both of the actors fired and my interest in the show isn’t what it was before. I’ll never figure out why two of the best actors are being replaced and no one will do the work justice. What a shame to abuse the reign of control this much.

    I think it was a HORRIBLE decision to fire Adam. There had to be a way to make things work and keep him. To let Summer go would have resulted in better rating for Y&R. Billy can not be replaced by this very DULL new Billy. Can’t stand him! I have watched Y&R since the very first airing and have always loved it (even through character changes) but this is to much. These two young men were the heart of Y&R. Please find some way to bring back Adam and Billy.

    I cannot believe this. I was blindsided! I didn’t pay attention to what was coming up and I did not expect this at all. I have watched Y&R since 1990 and I cannot think of a day I did not want to watch it…until now. Get ready to join As The World Turns and Guiding Light! This show is going to tank! What are you people doing?! Summer is A HORRIBLE actress, I’ve been waiting for the day you kill her off and instead you kill off Adam? And Billy was the life of the show! This new Billy is just not going to cut it. I think it’s about time I find something else to watch during this time. I have been needing to watch something more worth my while, anyway, and you just made that a whole lot easier!

    I so agree!! but I was in shock to see Billy Miller leave the set as Billy. No, Tom will not be able to do what Billy character did and could do!! Yes Billy M was the life of the set! I’ve always admired Billy because he went as far as spending that $3 million to get the ‘black market’ baby to please his wife and look how Billy lost the $3 million like it was $300!! Now how wrong was that for the producers to NOT NEVER give Billy back what he lost!! Instead, they continue to making Billy look common, bad, gambler, drinking, liar, etc. Billy had a heart of gold and now we must watch a NEW face to me try and fit Billy’s shoes …. I’m disappointed, but thanks for giving Victoria a new hair style!! Wow she needed it! As for Adam character Michael Muhney – I disagree with how he was asked to leave and while I have not yet tried to follow him on Twitter, I agree he probably need time off to be with wife and child or children! I loved, admired, respected, enjoyed and some times disagreed with Adam, but he was smart, good looking, funny, sharp and just a son looking to be accepted!! He and Chelsea look good together, but Heather character and Adam, OMG – that Heather was beautiful, strong, smart, sexy for Adam and not stuck on herself … why did that Heather get sent of the set??? Daggg, well thanks to the Summer stupid character we, I can no longer get to see Michael Muhney as Adam Newman. I’m disappointed …. yes, my heart aches ….. so loved the patience, hopeful and changed Adam. Jack was smart to like Adam as well. And Adam did not hear a sound from hitting Delia. I just wish she never left the car ….. so sad. I pray Michael Muhney lands on both feet even bigger and better, or just where he want to be ……

    I really liked Billy Miller in the role of Billy Abbot, and Michael in the role of Adam. Business is business, but viewership is also business. I’m not sure I’ll continue viewing Y&R. I’ve tried since the two characters have been replaced (Adam — TBD date of return). I have made the decision to focus my attention elsewhere. When Billy and Michael return to the show and there’s a shakeup in the executive office, I’ll consider viewing the show again. Many of my fellow viewers share my sentiment. I wonder where Y&R’s ratings are since the departure of those two great actors.

    I liked Billy! Never liked Adam…….of course he wasn’t supposed to be likeable! For me he didn’t have any redeemable qualities.

    I have been watching the Y& R since its 1st day. Some characters should not be replaced, they are the show. They could have never replaced Ms Chancellor, John Abbott, Victor Newman, Nikki Newman, Paul and on and on….Their business depends on viewer faithfulness to the shows…I liked the old Billy and Victoria’s fire and desire. Victoria can’t even act as well looking in the face of this little boy that took Billys place.

    I agree. I have been watching for 35 years and replacing an actor, especially in a good storyline, makes you not want to watch anymore.

    The new Billy just doesn’t fit!!!! The new Billy really does looks like Victoria’s little brother. Who wants to see a brother and sister making out…. YUCK, not me!

    I don’t like the new Billy with his squinty eyes. The previous Billy was perfect for the part. And don’t replace Adam…..he was fabulous in the show. Doesn’t seem fair….the network wants us to watch their shows then they screw them up by changing the characters and want us to accept it!! I don’t think so. Just like they got rid of Steffy in the Bold and the Beautiful… Disappointed!

    GOODBYE! Y&R! I haven’t tuned in 3 weeks, and will tune in today to see my ADAM! Delia should not have died, as we had just lost our DUCHESS! Billy Miller you are a gem, and Michael Muhney truly in a class of your own with HONORS! I wish you both much success after this train wreck. Michael I hope you go on to do movies and primetime and when you get your EMMY say thank you to your family, Sharon Case and your friends on the show that supported you rather than talk crap after you left, and lastly to the fans that have supported you throughout and beyond. No mention of the losers of CBS, SONY, and JFP and exit stage left. I’ll miss seeing you on Y&R, but you were the last pill I swallow from that garbage of a show -which I have tolerated since that let VR go but no more! Best wishes to you both!

    @Sharonda very well put after having non-stop turmoil dumped on MM I am glad it is over for him and need not to worry he will move on to better things. Going to give this show a long rest if I ever go back not just because of MM but the absolute juvenile and unprofessional behavior of the actors on the show. There is an old song out there that says you say it better when you say nothing at all!

    Sadly enough, after watching since day one, I am also saying Fare the well. It was a great ride for the most part, but there have been way to many goodbyes this year. Jeanne of course was the biggest loss and I will always love her for having been so wonderful and so dedicated, may she rest in peace. Michelle Stafford has been a constant favorite of mine since she began. I realize she was ready to move on and I wish her all the best. Genoa city has not been the same though, since her departure. And now, Billy Miller has decided to move on too. I know that wherever he goes, he will have great success because he can offer no less. Michael Muhney. I must say, it took forever for me to like his character, Adam. Of course now, I can’t stand the thought of him leaving. He is a remarkable actor with a lot of character and talent to offer. I wish him continued success as well. Lauren and Michael are really all great together and I love to watch Tracey and Christian. I know there is a great up and coming story to be had for them but it’s time now for me to say goodbye and just read clips here and there. I feel that Y & R is heading downward and I may as well let go of it like all of those who have left before me. It will make it much easier when it does fade out. Thanks to all of those special people who made afternoons so exciting for sooo long. Best of luck to all of you!

    I would agree with both of you and add Melissa Claire Egan to the list. The most painful part of all of this, is that when it is finally resolved (I still believe that someone else actually hit and killed Delia) it won’t be the same two actors playing the parts. So, it won’t have nearly the same effect. I wish them both the best. They will be missed!

    jonboyelk replied

    I’ve thought all along that another driver was responsible. Anyone would feel the impact of something striking their vehicle. The scarf could have already been lying on the pavement and attached to Adam’s vehicle. And there could be any number of explanations for the broken tail light. AND….isn’t it curious that the name above Adam’s on the list of matching plate number is “Kelly”? OK, so the last name is different, but who’s to say she doesn’t have a married or maiden name she goes by?

    Mamajk replied

    I too believe someone else hit and killed Delia. Remember they also show Nikki driving home that night too. I am so over, Victor, Sharon and Nick. The show has gone to the toilet, and I am tired of wasting my time. I have watched since the beginning. I read where Michael Muhney may go to another soap…….guess that is where I will go also. Good bye Y&R!!

    Melissa replied

    I KNOW that someone else killed Delia. When Paul brought the list of black SUV’s to Kevin I paused the DVR to read it, and guess who’s name was right above Adam Newman? Kelly!!! I don’t remember what her last name was though…Taylor maybe.

    I agree and since they have gone so have I teh only way I will come back is if they come back especially MM and it is shown that it was Nikki who drove the car that killed Delia not Adam then we would see how they all react because Adam is so much better then tthe rest of them and MM is the reason Adam is who we all are barricking for.

    Billy Miller waht can I say I just love him and Michael these two actors were why I watched the show but a sthey have gone so have I.

I am disappointed that these two actors have been left go from Y&R what ever the reasons. I will no longer be watching Y&R after today. The story lines have gone down hill and with all the important actors leaving there is huge wholes now where the once were. I think that Jill Phellps should be let go in her job.

    Donna, first, Adam and Summer are soap characters and therefore, Michael Muhney can not be fired for anything his character does within the parameters of fiction. Second, let’s focus on the drama we see on the television set, not the alleged drama behind the drama. There’s been far too much speculation and rumor mongering already. That said, Billy and Michael hit it out of the ball park today–brilliant actors, both of them.

    Thank you Mr. Fairman for writing about the storyline , the characters and the 2 very talented actors who play them. I was concerned that recent behind the scenes drama would overshadow the drama we see unfolding on the screen.
    I think both Muhney and Miller are giving gut wrenching, heart breaking performances. Both are so good that they transcend the not very good writing they have been afforded. The pacing is sluggish and going on too long–not the actors’ fault. Moreover, it has been made clear to viewers time and time again that Adam could not have been the one who hit Delia. As he repeated the story once again to Billy in which he includes the fact that he got out of the car, saw all was well, felt no impact while in his SUV, and finally, the little chip on his side light is not indicative of having hit a child. What I wish is that they had both Adam and Billy realize that Adam is in fact, innocent. I am sure that will come later with the Adam recast but the sense of vindication will be lost with another actor playing this part as we have watched Michael Muhney struggle with his conscience and with his soul in such an agonizing way. Many of us will not be watching so there will be no sense of vindication for the viewers either.
    Also, wanted to point out that the goodbye scene between Adam and Jack were incredible touching and a case of art imitating live. Those two were not acting and one could tell it was Michael telling Peter that he’s a good man who has been a friend and the father that he never had. Both actors had real tears brimming in their eyes–a very touching scene.
    In short Michael Muhney’s swan song was pitch perfect as was Billy Miller’s. They will be missed.

    Michael Muhney created Adam Newman into one of the best characters on the show based on his own acting abilities. He was thrown horrible storylines, yet he overcame them and connected with the viewers. What else explains the outcry over his firing?

    He could have stayed if the situation had been handled properly, but that’s a reflection on the producer and Sony. What a mistake. Muhney was the show’s future.

    I agree, 100%. I don’t fault Miller for leaving on his own accord but the character of Billy will not be the same with David Tom, and the recast is happening so soon! It’s not as though Billy will be off screen for a few months, it will only be a few days and then we’ll have a new Billy. Terrible, just terrible.

    As for Muhney, he is easily one of the top actors in the entire genre; not just the show, but all of daytime. Adam is one of my favourite characters on Y&R and there is no other actor who can do what Michael Muhney has done with Adam, he’s a phenomenal actor and he will go far. As for the storylines, you’re spot on; some have been horrible, like Melanie (remember her?) claiming Adam raped her… that was horrific and ridiculous on all accounts.

    The situation between him and Hunter King, or should I say the unproven allegations towards him, was handled completely wrong. The whole cast got involved and CBS, Sony and JFP did nothing to correct the issue. Shame on them. Muhney and the fans deserve so much better.

    Y&R has been so dark lately with Katherine’s death and now Delia’s, it’s turning into General Hospital before Frank and Ron took over. All I can hope is that by New Years 2015, I won’t be as disappointed as I am with the show now.

    I love the character of Adam. Truly one of the best daytime or otherwise actors out there. The fact remains that he was accused of an unacceptable offense against a woman/girl. It seems to me that no one wants to take this seriously, sweeping it under the carpet. It is the 21st Century, people….men cannot get away with what was once “okay” …..that is, treat a woman less that a person and more like a sexual object.. Where is the respect? I do not know what happened, but if there is a scintilla of truth here, then Michael M. should suffer the consequences, no matter what. He’ll be lucky if no criminal charges will be brought against him. So, what is the consensus here? That Hunter is lying? Maybe, but doubtful….and I’m sure others heard him, otherwise such drastic steps would not have been taken.
    No one speaks up…oh, poor Michael. Just because he’s a good actor does not give him license to disrespect women. Hunter is naturally well-endowed…not her fault…what is she to do? I know the feeling, believe me…..it is humiliating and degrading!!!! The same could be said about a well-endowed man. No respectable woman would dare make such a comment. She would be considered a-you-know-what, but a man would be slapped on the back and cheered. Is this not still living with the double standard?
    If he did it, why should he be exempt from the backlash? I hope he is innocent , I really do….only time will tell.

    Shemar can’t act- IMO, and he’s succeeding doing action type roles where the plot drives the stories not the acting-drama doesn’t suit him.

    Sharonda…you make a very good point. I agree. Shemar Moore’s time on Y&R has come and gone. And, besides, SM being on Criminal Minds is a PERFECT FIT for him. Yep.

    jonboyelk replied

    Whether he can act or not was not the point I was making. He was a fan favorite, as were Miller and Muhney. Jaime Lyn Bauer was a fan favorite, David Hasselhoff was a fan favorite…..the ex-YnR list is a long one, and the show continues to go on…..

    I honestly don’t think he would even consider putting himself up for an Emmy nod…not after the shitty way he’s been treated by TPTB.
    But I would love it if he did and he won! Now that would be at least some vindication!

    I love Y&R..I have been watching this show faithfully since it’s debut in 1973..The writing has been superb, the story lines riveting, but I have to say the Dehlia story line was most disturbing. Not since Cassie’s death has a story bothered me so much. And I have to say that Dehlia’s death tore me to shreds. No parent should ever have to face such a tragedy. With that being said, the two characters of Billy & Adam were each tormented by her death. I absolutely hate to see it all end this way. Two fine actors leaving at the same time. They were two of the most complex and fascinating characters on the show. Absolutely nothing mindless about them. And I think what saddens me most is that I think and I believe that a truth will eventually surface that Adam was not the hit and run driver after all. If that is indeed the case, what a shame for the people they leave behind. And what a loss for their fans!!!! I wish both actors luck and hope we, the fans, see them in shows worthy of them.

I’m thinking about saying “farewell” to Y & R and will wait to see where these fine actors re-appear and will watch those shows!!!! I don’t believe Tom can replace Billy Miller ….and have no idea who will return as Adam in about 6 months….and really don’t care!

  32. Mary SF says:

    I didn’t care for the way they demonized Adam for what was an accident, they kept saying he killed her, like he had done it on purpose, and some of the lines were a bid over the top and unnecessary, as if the writers were getting their digs in on MM through his character Adam.

    But aside from that I found the scenes today, with both Billy and Adam among the best in the show’s recent history. Unfortunately because of all the behind scene drama and rumors I doubt MM will ever win an Emmy for those performances. Yet in the hearts of his fan, he proved his point by acting his butt off while knowing it was his swan song. He could have phoned it in and ruin the scenes of the confrontation to get back at them for firing him, but he no, he gave his Adam a fitting goodbye performance.

    I guess what is sad about this is that once they recast Adam they will redeemed the character and most likely find out it wasn’t really his car that hit Delia— that is was Kelly or someone else, like a Mason that did it.

    I just started watching this about a month ago, and now I will be way confused. The characters are all new to me, and hopefully the new Billy Abbot will be someone that I can remember. HAHA, after Soapnet went off the air and the re runs of AMC and OLTL can’t be seen anymore, I had to pick some new Soap to watch. I knew that Steve Burton had gone to another soap, and once I found him in Y&R decided to watch. I sure wish there were some synopsis to know some of the story line, it is very hard to start so cold. Anyone with a synopsis?

    Joan– this website has a section off on the side of any page call Michael’s Links– click on Soap Central. Soap Central has an excellent history section for each soap. When you get there click on the Y&R tab, and then once in the Y&R page, go to the ABOUT Y&R section— there you can find recaps, history, character history, etc. It is good resource for those just beginning to watch a new soap. I used it to catch up on GH when I started watching last year.

    The acting of these two men – Billy M. & Michael M. – has been nothing less than incredible — over the years — and especially since the Delia thing – which should have never happened. Both men deserve an Emmy for their recent work – even though if nominated, they would be competing against each other for Best Actor. Such nuance, such heart, such power! Unfortunately, so many of the other Y&R story lines just don’t come close to the magic and complexity of Billy and Adam’s “dance of death.” It is hard to imagine continuing to watch Y&R, knowing the less-than-transparent circumstances under which Michael was fired. And who wants “Billy” when that character’s not played by Billy Miller. I hope to see both men find other venues in which to display their talent. In all probability, I will not watch Y&R as I’ve done — almost every day for the past five or so years, since Michael came on board as Adam. He was by far my favorite character, with Billy a close second.

Ever since I heard about the departure I just watched Millers scenes and skipped the rest. I thought miller was the best in the whole show and he was the reason I stayed to watch the show. Now I find every other story line predictable and I only have watched one year. I will stop watching today as it won’t be the same and will watch wherever Miller goes. He is talented and shouldn’t have trouble going primetime please no more soap operas I can’t take anymore. I hope YR luck since they will need it.

    I feel the same way! I have been watching Y & R for 30 years and after Feb 1, 2014 I will NO longer watch. David Thom Poor choice to replace Billy Miller. Michale Muhney will be sadly missed. The character who played Delia wanted to leave so why didn’t they just cast the little girl instead of killing her off- another bad choice. In closing, my opinion- LOVED LOVED Adam *& Chelsea together. Victoria and Billy well I can get used to them not being together- will miss BIlly Miller though. Stitch and Victoria could be a great couple. I think Kelly killed Delia. This Carmine Storyline is getting very boring. I think that Devon and Hilary make a great couple. Avery and Dylan- getting used to – liked her better with Nick. Sharon & Dylan? Like Abby and Tyler together. Now that Ian Ward is in Genoa City – look out Summer and I think that Ian Ward may have Jill held captive? Hmmm maybe a NEW RIVAL for Victor- IAN WARD- Just some thoughts – but oh well who knows cause I don’t really WANT to watch anymore NOW that my two FAV actors are gone.

    Good Luck Billy Miller and Michael Muhney you are BOTH awesome actors and any other tv /daytime show that has the opportunity to cast either of YOU WILL be very LUCKY!! LOVE to see Micheal Muhney (Adam) come to Days of our lives!!!! Love interest for HOPE now that Bo is gone!!!

    I haven’t watched either, nor do I read re-caps. But if you need to wean yourself off-that is the way to do it and youtube. But watching Days is much better, and watching reruns of Life Goes On and Sisters is always better than Y&R!

    The storyline of a child dying is always heartbreaking but this one has left me COLD! How in the world is it even remotely conceivable for this lame excuse storyline to too have been written just to blame Adam Newman. this was a tragic accident at worst Adam panicked after hearing almost everyone in town from the local police to the local hometown media demanding a lynching for the person who unfortunately ran into a small child at NIGHT on a deserted stretch of a hillside road in a SUV a vehicle that if anyone were driving this vehicle under similar circumstances would more then likely not even notice they hit someone of that height and size under those driving conditions. My problem with Y&R is not only is it a dull slowly paced drama. it has NO creative storylines. The story has brought in over the past several years actors Michael Muhney and Billy Miller and young actors with promise like Max Ehrich and that to be fair has been a plus for the long running daytime drama but aside from the acting the show is just well DULL and the current producers of the show they manage to consistently do something to drive viewers away from Y&R. it’s just another sad day for fans of this daytime drama.

I am a Young and Restless fan, so I probably will not watch him on another soap, but if he’s on prime-time, I will watch. Although, Tom has played Billy before, it will not be the same.

    I can’t imagine anyone else paying Adam, other than Michael. I’m hoping whomever replaces him can do as a great job as Michael. I am so hoping the writers of Y&R redeem Adam. I am hoping the tip they got about Adam’s hit and run, proves to be the person who actually hit Delia. Just a sad story line.

    feel so sad ,best two actors they had billy and adam, the show will never be the same ,ratings will go down ,adam was the core of the show as well as billy , a fantastic preformance from both of them i hope all goes well with both of them they will be missed , they took the heart right out of the show ,how sad , the ratings will go down the show will be cancelled and they will all be out of a job including that 20 year old wanna be actrsss summer, shes not at all attractive ,mm is a happy married family man he loved the show ,he would not jeopordize his career by feeling up a 20 year old girls breast ,how insane is that to risk his family life and job , get real ,they need to find out why that little 20 year old summer is up to shes looking for popular ratings for herself ,get her self noted and climb the ladder of sucess at the cost of a talented hard working man like mm, he had tough roles but he came out as a great actor god bless you both billy and adam ,and shame on the rest of the cast ,

    I think that KELLY killed Delia NOT Adam!! Y & R will suffer the ramifications for these awesome actors leaving the show- heck ERIC BRAEDEN ( Victor) was fired and came back!! Now that Catherine is gone with her sad untimely death, Phyllis in a coma , Delia gone and now MM & BM. NOthing left to watch!!

    Saw it today and tears were shed. Such amazing actors who have, indeed made the Y & R worth watching. All the old characters are really boring, Eric Breeden makes me sick and the new kids leave much to be desired. Dillon is the only one left and I am hoping to see Adam on General Hospital very soon!!! Billy Miller will also be missed. He, too is an amazing actor.Todays episode left it very difficult to figure out, since they are planning on bring Adam back with a new actor later on. Just will not be the same. Wherever they are, is where I will be.

    if you hit someone, don’t you feel it? Adam didn’t and saw only a dog. The scarf, could have stuck on is truck. Why kill the girl instead of make her go away instead. I am watching the program since the beginning and it is an eternal same old story. Victor hating every one who moved, Nicky and her old story, Sharon obsessed with Nick. And those stories, you feel them very easily, before they happened. The death of Jeanne, so sad. The rest of the actors, are better than the one I mentioned.

    be a fan and can’t even imagine not watching. There are still great actors
    on Y and R, and great storylines. I can’t stand other soaps with violence,
    hospital focus, etc. Much prefer the soft voices, luxurious ambience,
    beautiful surroundings, etc. of Y and R!

    I have watched this show since I was little and thought I would watch it till the last show that aired but I can understand mrs chancellor leaving and Delia but come on you have to draw the line somewhere Billy was a great actor and you should have had to do what you could to keep him as well as Phyllis and furthermore people finally started liking Adam and the word is you fired him are y’all crazy why don’t y’all go off the air like all the rest of the shows. The blonde headed girl Billy fell for not crazy about her and never was and Lilly can take her or leave her her husband have nothing for him but y’all won’t fire him and he needs to go he is so BORING!! Like michael and Lauren Sharon Nikki nick jack and victor believe it or not I will watch Friday what happens to Billy and Adam and find a new soap or give up all together for not doing better to keep these two I am so so disappointed with the writers producers and the ones who write the contacts Goodbye to young and restless you have a bad way to end things and I’ve never been so disappointed!!!!!!!

    The Young and The Restless has lost some great actors this year for many reasons but the best acting on television has between Billy Miller and the great Michael Muhney. Wake up Young and Restless writters and producers you have just lost two great actors and I don’t think you can replace them. You will loose many viewers because of the writing which has gone down hill and letting go of your best actors for whatever what reason. The old stories are boring I have watched this story for so many years and after today to see the great acting of Billy and Michael I won’t be watching any more. Wake up.

    I have been watching Y&R for ever. it’s the first thing I used to do when i came home in the evening. But, I felt NOTHING when I pulled the plug on it today.
    Tell me, folks, in all sincerity, what is there to watch? All the story lines are so boring and meaningless . The Ian Ward/Nikki/Dylan story is as interesting as a bad dream. Chloe is fast becoming another Psycho. Chelsea played her best part , now she is in limbo. Oh I forgot, the now big honcho in the Police force ,Kevin is nothing but empty noise. Victor Newman is just wandering about poking himself where he is not wanted.
    I hope Jack wins this war in the end. The other characters are so nondescript that it is not even worth mentioning them
    Good luck.to all those want to keep watching. As for me , it gave me intense satisfaction to click on “Stop recording series” today.
    Best of luck to Billy and Michael. You played the best roles of your lives today.I hope you will be nominated for Emmys for this outstanding performance .

    All I have to say is,to take a loss of this magnitude,the Y&R will be off the air in less than 2years.The Y&R took a big hit with Jeannie Cooper’s death,then came Judith Chapman,before her John Abbot, Eileen Davidson,,then Melody Thomas for awhile,what gives? We all know that Victor and Nikki are Y&R,however, they can’t carry the show, if the producers are not willing to bend, or killing off the real talent to support Victor, and Nikki..Billy&Adam..Big Loss Y&R…I’m done,you didn’t learn from the Guiding Light?

    I have faithfully watched Y&R since March 1973. There have been people who have left or been fired for whom I cried for. I always stuck in there, though, knowing the writers of the show had something just as good or better in mind.
    Then this, a storyline of a beloved little girl not purposely run down, but whom the town embraced her death. And it had to be Adam they pinned it on. MM has done some of the best acting I have ever viewed on Y&R.
    Knowing it was Billy’s daughter that was killed, brought out the best acting of BM, too.
    I loved how easy BM and Victoria got along . . . Jim & Margaret from “Father Knows Best.” Married shoeless in the sand and tipsy. The two were made for each other.
    Never in my life did I think I’d see the day that these 2 really outstanding actors were to bid farewell to Y&R.
    I think Summer should have been brought to trial, but, no, just take the woman’s allegations, and the great MM gets fired. I think the allegations should have been brought to the attention of the police IF they did indeed occur. That’s Soap life for you.
    I was SO sad today, the 30th, because our President was in our town, and the last half of the show was preempted. Now, maybe it was a blessing in disguise when I read it was the last day for BM & MM. Spooky, actually. I have cried SO many tears through all the Delia scenes, that I didn’t think I had any more to cry. But I will.
    This will be the end of Y&R for me. Jeanne Cooper dying hit me SO hard. The Duchess dying. Then Phyllis in a coma no more to be seen. Now, my last 2 favorite actors, BM and MM leaving. SO glad I missed the last 30 minutes.
    May you both find equally rewarding success in any jobs you do. You are the cream of the crop, and I will never forget either of you. The heart wrenching scenes the past couple of days especially.
    I once watched & taped 13 soaps, and dwindled it down to Y&R. Now I can get on with real life, no firing no tears from TV.
    ~~~~~MM and BM . . . Always Remembered . . . Never Forgotten~~~~~

    @Marissa Just like ATWT got horrible canned-so can Y&R and to say it will be on for 10 plus more years is unlikely-if it continues in the path its on. Several soaps have come and gone since the late 70-2000s. RIP Ryan’s Hope, Santa Barbara, ATWT, and to say that we who will no longer watch to “grow up” is offensive. People have a right to stand and support whatever cause they want. I stand to disagree with you on this my friend.

Doesn’t he realize how hard it is to get a job out there even for actors and in some cases especially for actors?! AND he has a great spot and character role at Y&R. Oh well, some people never learn. As far as Y&R’s story line…there’s a lot of work to be done to keep us all interested with Miller, Muhney and Delia gone.

    I have been watching the Y&R 40 years. It was hard enough for fans to adjust to the loss of the great Jeannie Cooper whom was an amazing actress who will never be forgotten. Now with the firing of Michael Muhney and Billy Miller leaving also is nothing less then cast disaster! Neither of these characters could ever be replaced. Sure David Tom may be returning as Billy but the two were totally different characters. Personally I don’t think I can stand to watch Billy Miller and his bad boy image be replaced by David Tom. No offense David Tom but are they going to completely change the personality and character. Billy Miller and Michael Muhney are irreplaceable and I wish them both the best. Who ever picks up these two actors next really hit the jackpot. The Y&R writers better be able to fix this or this 40 year fan will be changing the channel. In all fairness I certainly will give it a few episodes out of curiousity but I am not happy!

    Well as Braedan is in his 70′s I’m guessing the coaching of a son was over 40 years ago. Plus ‘nice guys’ don’t get into fist-a-cuff with 2 co-stars. Maybe he just needs to retire. if you read his interview he was very disrespectful to the fans. Big no-no.

    I believe he was coaching his sons college soccer team in the 90′s. Doesn’t seem that long ago to me, haha. Of course, if he’s physically accosted anyone on the cast that should be ignored any more than Mr. Muhney’s alleged actions. Guess we’ll never truly know.

    I agree. The previous Adam was never going to win me over the way Mr. Muhney did. I absolutely hated him when he first came onto the show. But, over time and with his excellent acting abilities, I came to really like the character, to feel badly for how mistreated he was by the rest of the Newman family and to feel that the poor guy just never got a break. When he and Chelsea got together it seemed like they were both getting a shot at a good life. Well, as good as it ever gets in a soap. So sorry to see him go.

    Well, as of yesterday, I discontinued my daily recordings of Y&R. No more Y&R. I cannot continue to support a soap that does not support its fans. When the reports of the allegations came out someone from the leadership team for CBS/Sony should have come out and made a statement like this: To our beloved Y&R fans, please understand that we want your continued support as viewers of Y&R and know that we will find the “best Adam Newman” replacement for you in consideration of your disappointment in light of these developments. Please understand that we value your continued support as we work together for Y&R’s continued success as a daytime soap opera.” It’s just that simple and I truly believe the Michael Muhney fans would have really appreciated this.

    Sometimes people and businesses have to make decisions that can’t be up for the popular vote. By boycotting the show, the other talented actors could lose their jobs … is this what we really want?

    Shouldn’t the show have thought of that before they made such bad decisions?

    Shouldn’t the show have thought of that before they took the actions? The MM and BM situation seems to be the catalyst for the boycott threats, but there’s been dissatisfaction for a long time; if people were otherwise happy with the show, I don’t think you’d be hearing so much boycott talk.

    The flip side of what you’re arguing is that so long as they have poor writing and a producer who has more negatives than pluses, and people keep watching, things rarely, if ever, get better. Is this what we really want?

    (Taking no position, pending some real information if we ever do get it, on whether the MM situation was unavoidable–a situation that couldn’t be “up for the popular vote.” You could certainly be right about that.)

    I have watched the show for years and Billy Miller is the best Billy Abbott, he is so real, adventurous, emotional, boyish and has grown up to a fine young man, not to mention not hard on the eyes at all but most of all he brings such realism to his character. I hope to see him in whatever role he chooses for his next project, he is a wonderful actor.
    I love the actor that plays Adam is does it so well, he really makes me hate his character right up there with the actress that plays Phyllis.
    Young and the Restless is the best soap ever created and the actors are proof as well as the stories.

    I will truly miss Mr. Miller, he has the potential to be a phenomenal actor. He played the character with such conviction. He really did a fine job of portraying a grieving father of a 7 year old beautiful little girl. Mr. Muhaney’s character was such an evil, self-centeredand, deviant person..I really didn’t want to see him on the screen. Great performances by both actors. I wish both of them the very best in their careers.

    Over the years, I’ve gotten so angry with the storylines or characters and then they do their magic and I go from hating a character to loving them, i.e. “Adam”, “Chelsea” and so many others over the years that were made out to be truly evil and then with a nicer haircut, better make-up and clothes, redeeming storylines and great acting, I find myself cheering on the character I hated. In other words, daytime drama does it’s thing and plays on our emotions. As much as I think Michael Muhney is an outstanding actor and as much as I prefer Billy Miller as Billy Abbot, I want to keep in mind that there are lots of other actors on this show that I want to stay employed … Melody Thomas Scott, Josh Morrow, Amelia Heinle (my personal favorite) and so many others. Personally, I was hoping that if Billy Miller was leaving that they would kill off “Billy” and let Victoria get involved with Ben (Stitch) because he seems like a better fit than the ever unfaithful Billy. I’m not a fan of the former Billy (Mr. Tom) returning because I don’t think he’s a good foil for Amelia Heinle. Just saying. There have been way too many losses to this show this year. I wish the executives would have thought these firings through … we lost Jeanne Cooper, Michelle Stafford and the adorable child that played Delia. Now we’ll add Michael Muhney and Billy Miller. That’s just too many fine actors in one year. I will try and continue to watch, for the other actors that I love; but, it is getting difficult with losing so many others. Some day when I get to rule the world (okay maybe that won’t happen) but if it does, we’re going to hit the big “undo button” on some of this craziness. Come on, it’s not only Bobby Ewing who can come back to life … even the slime ball Carmine can come back to life. Let’s bring Delia back, restore Michael Muhney to the character Adam, bribe Michelle Stafford to come back to the Phyllis role and move forward as a happy case and fan base. Ok?

    Thanks Patrick! My Mom watched this show from the time it started, so I saw a lot of it growing up. Now my Mom is gone and I watch the show because it makes me feel closer to her … thinking “boy Mom would love to see Victor getting his” or some such thought. Of course, I wouldn’t watch it if I wasn’t hooked too. I agree 2013 was not a great year for Y&R. Let’s hope 2014 fares better.

I learned to love MM as Adam, he made it easy to see the kind heart under the hard exterior. Billy as Billy made you feel sorry for him and give him another chance, but, I think its time for AH (Victoria) to move on, I would like to see her hook up with Ben (Stitch). :)

Learned to love Billy, but why did you have him sleep with that woman, it just makes that same story line come back and yet you keep he and Victoria together.

    I have been watching Y & R for 40 yrs with all of its ups and downs. Billy and Michael are 2 of my all time favorite characters. I can’t believe that Michael got fired. There are always 2 sides to a story. If they recast their characters it won’t be even close to the same as it has been. I’m so upset with this that I am highly considering quitting watching Y & R anymore which saddens me greatly. In my opinion Michael is the only actor that can put the screws to Victor the way is does and make it look real. His expressions and tones are priceless.
    Please bring both Billy and Michael back to Y & R.

    I am so sad to see these two awesome talented guys leave the show! I will NOT continue to watch as I believe in stand by the man! Michael aka Adam and Billy were the best part of the show. These two actors were why we hung in there with all the crap actors and story lines. Cane and Lily for one, the horrible acting of the new Abby….she really bombed at where the old Abby was brilliant! We should have known this new so called professional “Jill” was pathetic from that point! I guess with all the new actors , she wanted a new audience. She lost me after watching the show for 30 years! In those 30 years I was a more dedicated and watched it everyday since Michael and Billy were cast!!! They are brilliant actors and I will follow their careers as to not miss anything they perform in! Bye Y & R until you get rid of Jill Phelps! Michael and Billy Kudos!!! xo

    I had no idea Adam and Bill we’re leaving the show until today. I had already felt such a loss when Mrs. C passed as she was the matriarch of the show and so easy to love, but to learn Adam and Billy are now gone is to much. Especially Adam. Victor treated him badly and it seemed Adam finally found peace with Chelsea and his son. Victor has become such a scum bag I no longer care for him. Adam (MM) will be terribly missed. He was what daytime drama is all about. He is sexy and interesting. He showed passion and range in is acting abilities. He is destine to become another Meg Ryan. I really have no reason to continue watching the show. This story lines with Niki and Victor remain the same. The saving grace of the show will be Jack. I hope you folks write in something god for him. He is long overdue!

    WOW. Just watched jan31 ep. of adam & billy. SO EPIC & INTENSE. Ynr for me, is definetly the best soap and most realistic. Nothing will be the same without muhney and miller, but what a way to end it. The unfolding of the delia case was a tragety. Im happy there was justice but killing off adam was Heartbreaking…it was an accident, he tried to write a wrong in the end, and poor chelsea n conner- the only good that was in his life after such a hard time. I have to say, I expected more raw emotion from delias loved ones.. only chelsea, victoria and kevin remained believable and realistic. *side note* I know mmuhney had to exit given the issue, but I honestly don’t think ynr will be the same without him! The acting of adam will be soo missed. I was shocked n disappointed about his incident with hking… I sympathize for them both in different ways. *p.s. Us viewers will never really know the whole true story behind scenes. May the ynr cast find common ground at the end of the

    Michael Muhney on the the other hand…I am sooooo upset to see this absolutely dynamic actor go, but I’ll keep watching… Until they ‘almost completely’ mess with the formula/vibe/standards of Y&R and turn it into a second-rate “soapy soap”, I’ll continue to watch.

Let one be a doctor, like a children’s doctor, and the other a business man, like a nice night club owner that has a (special guest singer) that comes in once in a while, that would also benefit the show. And that they both have nice wives and each have a child or two….General Hospital really needs a few good families in town without a lot of drama going on in there lives….but do your thing that will bring them into the show without bringing harm into there family life for a change…..I know they have been great (Bad man) in one way or the other, so to speak…so lets give them a break….but what ever you do….keep them on forever cause we all love them very much….I love Michaels eyes and I love Billys smile….Thank you for letting me, and my opinion only….say what I wanted to say….I’ve been a fan of General Hospital since it aired….and will continue to be….and seeing the two of them on the show….well….as a famous actor once said….”Come on, make my day.”

    I will miss the characters. I wish them both truth, happiness, humbleness, and renewed strength and faith. Maybe we shall see them on other shows in the future. They are both talented. Sometimes so much talent leads away from humbleness. It isn’t always about whose best or youth. Sometimes it’s about honor and dignity. It isn’t always about money and arrogance; sometimes it’s about what is noble and worthy. As maturity comes, maybe forgiveness and freedom and respect tag along-maybe. I adore the soap y&r ; watching since college. Love the ability of all the various talents. Sometimes, we confuse talent with rather we like the person in that role or the storyline. All the actresses and actors on this soap are talented, but sometimes the beef isn’t in the story telling. People see story telling in different ways. Who’ s to say which version is best. Many times I would have written the story differently, but im not a writer for a soap. I do wish y&r and billy and michael peace. I enjoy them all and think both men should win an award for their last few months. They were outstanding as their individual characters. I will continue to watch Y&R because I watch it for fantasy pleasure realizing it is a drama! Good luck all. A continued watcher.

    Very spiritual thoughts, Ophelia ( I do hope you have read “Hamlet”–LOL). However, humility and meekness are far-reaching qualities for mortals. I certainly agree with you in that respect; humility cleanses the soul. Nonetheless, it should not exempt people from wrong doing. I have said this before, if indeed, MM acted in a degrading manner toward Hunter K, then he deserves what he got and then some. As a woman, I am sure you get that. This is the crux of the matter for me. Why, oh why is everyone up in arms on Michael’s firing?
    Billy Miller is another matter. He was my favourite actor on the soap. He was also just as good on AMC albeit he was there briefly.
    I am giving MM the benefit of the doubt, but something serious must have gone down for him to get fired….just my opinion.

    It saddens me greatly to see what Y&R has done to this once terrific and classy daytime drama. I thought I would not recover when Michelle Stafford (Phylis) left the show and I realize that was her doing, she was one of the reasons I was still watching. She was exceptional, but to lose two of the best male actors on the show (Adam) Michael Muhney and Billy Miller now is intolerable!! Its bad enough the writing is so predictable, but to fire Michael when he is one of the most gifted actors Ive ever seen is deplorable! I never liked the character of Adam until Michael Muhney took over the role and portrayed the very essence of Adam Newman in a very real and deeply felt realization. I pulled for Adam in the story. I believed in his cause to show Victor he was worthy of love and respect as well as being a brilliant business man and father. Michael was so believably elegant in his role of Adam, and Billy was wonderfully delightful in his role as Billy Abbott. But now they are gone and its just not worth watching anymore. The sugar and spice and charm are all but gone save Daniel Goddard who is the only golden star left burning on this once riveting and exciting show on television. Kisses to the rest of the cast who must endure without these gems! You are all wonderful and will be missed, but to speak very candidly now, dude, I am so done!

His brooding, self-loathing persona in his shirt and vest every single day, I mean, really, who stays dressed like that around the house, it got on my nerves, and I’ve been watching for years. He was the same day after day after day, no depth to his acting at all, just played an angry person all the time and it got quite old… I tape it and ALWAYS fast forwarded through his ho-hum scenes.. The Chelsea/Adam storyline is old and tired, she doesn’t have the acting chops either… Billy Miller, on the other hand, is an extraordinary actor, but frankly, his brooding also became a bit stale, day after day, the same thing… I will continue to watch, I’m a loyal fan, look forward to see what’s coming in the future…

    I’m not a soap watcher but got hooked on the Billy and Adam characters about 2 months ago.

Then, as Adam started to become remorseful for the accidental death of Delia, I was drawn to his acting skills. Those two were the only reasons that I watched Y & R. Probably won’t be watching anymore since they will be absent. Am really sorry they are gone. Best of luck to both of them in the future.

    David Tom was so ineffective that I have no memory of him at all. What happened between Hunter King and Michael Muhney, is between them. It has nothing to do with the show or the viewers. Mr. Muhney is a wonderful actor and should be, somehow, brought back. Ms. Hunter is, like David Tom, very ineffective and can be easily replaced by any one of thousands of other bleach blonds. Her acting is poor, her appearance not memorable, and she should have been fired, not Mr. Muhney. It is unfathomable to me that Y & R would bow down to someone who very well may have made up the whole story.

    I like both Adam and Billy they will be missed. As for Billy’s replacement, he will grow on people. I’ve been watching since I was a little girl back when Chancelor and Jill were fighting over Phillip! Many have come and gone. I will be watching.

    Yes, we will miss Bad Boy hunky Adam and even Billy’s hot temper with that build…… Both great characters and will watch to see where they go. The new Billy just isn’t going to work when he didn’t go through and experience all what Bilky Miller went through. So thumbs down on Y and R for doing this. Not a good move. Bring these guys back!!!!!!

    Am I the only one who noticed that the show is becoming more and more boring? I hate the whining sniveling characters like Summer, Fenmore and now Lauren. They took a strong character from General Hospital and made him weak…what happened to Stone Cold? They had 2 interesting characters after Jeanne was gone, Michael (Adam) and Billy. Now they are gone. I have no reason to watch again. I guess it is reruns of Magnum for me. Sigh.

    I am really sad to see Adam Newman go, While he was behind the wheel of the vehicle that killed sweet Delia Abott,it was in fact a accident after he swerved to miss the dog he got out and checked around saw the dog safe and didnt see nothing else and drove away,the family of Delia is saying monster how can you just leave a little girl on the side of the road to die?Hello what part of he didnt see her do they not get?Granted once he realized that he was the one that hit her he should have came forward about the events of that evening had he done so it would have been deemed a accident,but since he panicked do to the fact then it was infact a hit and run,He never saw her and was affraid to go to jail for a hit and run where he never saw the girl which isnt fair,if anything i feel they should not have killed him off they should have charged him with obstruction of justice for destroying evidence of the accident after the fact ,I dont feel he should have got anything other than that because he never saw her period.Chelsea I was so happy to see the heart felt changes in adam when he finally realized he loved her and how much he loves his son would have so wanted to see the three of them happy together.as far as him being fired I really wish they would allow another actor to step in and to take on the roll of adam newman,His character will be deeply mssed.as far as billy goes everyone can feel his grief but he kidnapped adam took him at gun point with force ,gun went off since adams gone i belive he was the one shot and would love to see justice served Put billy in jail for murder,rather Billy shot him or caused the crash do to his actions and adam died he caused his death and he should not go unpunished, I mean they were going to charge Fenmore with murdering Carmine when everyone thought he was killed even though carmine stalked ,raped and tried to kill lauren and her husband ,their son was trying to protect his family and he was going to go to prison for years,untill his dad proved carmine was infact alive .Bottom line is everyone needs to be punished for taking the law in their own hands,hope to see Billy locked away for good because what adam did was a accident,what billy did cost adam his life was on purpose………..The sub billy will be missed,didnt care for the original one so glad hes leaving

    I loved the Adam Character, hate to see him go. I’m not sure of the firing but if he’s guilty then yes he needs to be gone. Hate to see that happen, .. Billy on the other hand , made an excellent character, but didn’t have to see him everyday. His role could get somewhat boring at times. I’m glad it appears as if Adam died in the car crash because they can’t replace that character now… He was such a strong actor. But the writing really needs to improve.

    While I loved them both, Adam is not Young and Restless… That would be Victor Newman and Katherine Chancellor. While Kathering (RIP) is gone… Victor is still holding his own. I find him to be a bit nosey, but he is the star here not Adam… Again I loved the character but he came in pretty late to the story, and they had several Adam’s prior to Mulney making the character what he is today. So I’m glad they killed him off, because the one honest thing he did., was truly an accident, but no one in Genoa City would ever believe that.

    Will you ever make Sharon tell the truth about Summer, how long we will have to endure Nick suffer. You killed a kid and that storyline ended fairly quickly, now you are milking the Sharon storryline, which is completely nerve wrecking. I’ve started to fast forward through her part. Its utterly ridiculous that you would take this long to have the truth come to light.

    And what’s with Nicky not telling Victor about the guy that has returned from her past… What kind of crap is that? Really.

    In closing I wish both the best of Luck in their future endeavors. But I will not stop watching Y&R. That’s why this soap maintains the number one spot.

    Yes. They were both great actors. But if your a true Y&R watcher, you know they change characters so much that it’s ridiculous. I’ve just learned to live with. Even tho I am greatly saddened to see them two go, I’m surely everyone will keep watching to see more character changes to come. No one got all upset when Heather Tom left as Victoria and they replaced her with Amelia. Now that change still upsets me to this day. But I still watch the show. And let’s not forget David Tom is the original Billy. Be happy they went for something original and not something new.

    I know Adam was not the most loved character but I am going to hate seeing him go. He just became a father and reunited with Chelsea. It would have been nice to see the new and improved Adam and to see Chelsea finally happy with the man she truly loved. His character could have remained ruthless in business but with personal relationsihps. It was a bad decision to replace Billy so soon with this other actor I already don’t like. They should have killed Billy off as well. I have no respect for him as he is still a cheat. So now, Chelsea’s child is fatherless, great move Y&R!! Two major changes in one episode….bad decision!.

    Will I miss Billy Miller/Billy Abbott and Michael Muhney/Adam Newman, ABSOLUTELY. Without them, I don’t want to watch the show. I have been watching Y&R since it began. Mr. Thom doesn’t hold a candle to Billy Miller, Adam made the show. Yes, sometimes the writers insult viewers intelligence, but you remind yourself “it is just a show.” The writers are so dense, one can predict (fairly accurately) what is going to happen from day to day. Why was Michael Muhney fired? Stupid, stupid, stupid…. things like that and poor writing could cause the show to lose more viewers consequently leading to the demise of the show. I hate Victor Newman, and he is totally predictable, but w/o him, there would not be much of a show. I hope that the responsible parties get their act together, i.e., better writing, re-hire Michael Muhney. I am almost certain that I can predict what is going to happen with the Adam character. Mr. Thom degrades Billy Abbott’s role.

    Michael Muhney was and is a very talented actor. It was as though he really was Adam Newman. Very hard shoes to fill. This character is truly original. He made the character his own. I just hate the character has been put into this position of thinking that he killed Delia. I truly don’t believe he killed her. The character was really grieving just as much as Billy and Chloe about the child’s death. I loved this charcter because he was well rounded in every situation they threw at him. He blew it away. Everyone deserves a second chance. I look forward to seeing him on the big screen, perhaps. He is good enough. If not his own TV pilot. I personally thought he was a better actor than Billy Miller.

    I have never missed an episode of the Young and the Restless since the first day it aired (although I had to tape many episodes to do it). Billy Miller has been one of my favorite actors. His ability to portray a flawed but charming and loving (and lovable), person can’t be duplicated. His pain at losing Delia was so real and raw. Billy Miller IS Billy Abbott. I strongly feel an error in judgement was made in letting him walk away. Surely some kind of contract could have been worked out to keep him with the show, even if he appeared less often. I will miss him more than I can say and will be looking to see if he appears in another show or movie. David Tom just does NOT have the personality to keep alive the character of Billy Abbott we have come to know and love. Hopefully, it won’t take the writers/producers too long to realize that and court Billy Miller to return.

    Most likely Billy Miller was fed up with the tension that existed between Adam, Victor, and others. Summer didn’t like Adam and she wanted him fired. Certainly seems odd that she never reported the alleged “groping” incident, but did after the alleged second incident. Still no police report filed. She goes to the big wigs, tells them to fire Adam and if they don’t, she will go to the police. Let her, bet she wouldn’t have gone. Michael Muhney (Adam) is a married man with three children, kind of doubt he would openly try to mess with a dingy “boob bouncing blonde.” She is exposing what she has just about all of the time, not very much covered. Most of the time she has a serious worried look on her face, not a happy-go-lucky young woman. From what I have read, in his private life, Michael Muhney is pretty much the same as the role he plays. He is very talented, and his presence would almost insure the viewers will continue to watch the show. Doubt they can get Billy back. I have seen him on other tv shows, not soaps. Rumor is that Adam believed that Victor wanted him fired, but dear old Victor claims Adam wanted him fired. I sure hope our comments will have some bearing on the big guys up there making decisions. You think maybe some of them might be interested in keeping little Ms. Boobs around. Claim is that Adam groped her boobs two different times. Maybe wishful thinking, he didn’t, so she gets mad. So working with Chelsea would seem to me that he had more opportunities to be onery, haven’t heard Chelsea complain. Adam is going to a different soap.

    I have been watching the Y & R for at 40 yrs and have enjoyed the story lines and characters over the years. In my opinion characters like the late Mrs Chancellor, Jill, Victor and Nicki have been the anchors. What has brought life and realism to the show were characters like Adam and Billy. Adam in particular was an intense actor who was able to challenge his father Victor and through Adam you could actually believe this was his son. I personally believe the firing of Adam is a huge mistake as he captivated the screen. As a viewer of over 40 yrs, I feel that this is a good time to change the channel. Your casting changes will not motivate me to watch a show I have so felt a part of. I already felt the loss of integrity of the show watching episode on 4.02.2014. Please bring back Michael Muhney

    Yes, I will miss Billy Miller as Billy. I had gotten to where I even was liking Adam. I am sorry that Michael got fired, but if he did what they said he did then he needed to be fired. I hope I can begin to like the new Billy they do look a lot alike so I will get him a chance.

    I’ve been watching Y&R from the beginning. Actors have left and been replaced. I didn’t realize that the new Billy was David Tom. I will certainly miss Billy Miller. He is so adorable! Y&R made a mistake replacing him. And Adam will be missed. His role was one of the most dramatic on the show. That being said it will not keep me from watching. I hope to see them in other roles or maybe in Y&Rs future. You never know when someone comes back from the dead.

    I will definitely miss both actors. Both this show and the bold and the beautiful have lost me as a viewer . You wonder why daytime soaps are disappearing? Your story lines are so absurd. Michael was one of my favorite actors I know there was a problem between him and the Summer actress but it didn’t seem like the whole story was told. The bold and the beautiful is so ridiculous. Why is it that when Brooke does something she is a slut and a whore but let Taylor (who thankfully is no longer in the storyline) or Katie (who also is one of the worst characters put in a soap) do the same things they are pillars of the community. Also I do not like the new Ridge wish you would have left him out of the story line. I loved Ron Moss as Ridge but now would much rather see Brooke with Bill. But this doesn’t matter since I will not be watching.

    IF (and I say IF) MM groped the young actress months ago and the Producers did nothing, shame on them. And IF the Producers did ignore the situation and really do allow physical fighting, manhandling of others, blackmail of themselves by “the talent” and any number of other offensive bits of behavior then they certainly won’t care what the fans of the show think/want. Normally you protect your income and assets. The minute someone doesn’t respect and protect either, they’ve lost reason and sanity. It’s a sad day when that fact is understood and accepted.

    I wonder what my DVR and I will do with a free hour every day? I used to love Y&R because the storylines were so much more realistic than other shows … no evil Stephano, no characters coming back as each other, etc. Yet, over the past year I have found myself defending the show to my husband who now open mocks the show and walks out of the room shaking his head. Why did you have to prove him right? Damn.

    I’ve been watching Y&R with my mom since it first aired. Over the years, the show became really boring, but what kept me watching was Billy Miller and Michael Muhney. They were amazing. I especially love Billy Miller. I want to know if someone is kidding? David Tom replaced Billy Miller? David Tom is not only a horrible actor, but he’s is no match for Billy Miller. David Tom is much too feminine to play the role as Victoria’s husband. Is the storyline changing? Will Billy leave Victoria for another man? I believe this role would be perfect for David Tom. I am done with Y&R. I’m leaving with Billy and Michael. I love you Billy Miller. I hope to see Billy Miller and Michael Muhney on another soap real soon.

    My husband and I both just loved Billy Miller as Billy Abbott…he is so charismatic. Very talented young man. David Tom has big shoes to fill. I know David played Billy earlier on and I didn’t care for him then. So for him to come back into the role seems silly. He acting is stiff and insincere. Sorry for being so harsh…I’ve been watching Y&R since I was very young with my mother and aunts. Oh well….we’ll have to just wait and see if he grows into his role. As for Michael who played Adam. Don’t know what was going on behind the scenes…but the man is a phenomenal actor as well. We’ll see what transpires from here on out. I’ll be watching for Billy and Michael to turn up on other shows. Good Luck to them both in all of their future endeavors.

    I agree so much! David Tom has only been back a few days and it’s laughable to see him attempt to act dramatically. The scene between he and “Kelly” in the hospital was hilarious because she looks like she would be his mother rather than a love-interest or booty-call. The moment, and I mean the very moment Y&R tries to show a love scene between this teeny-bopper and “Victoria”, I’m done. Amelia Heinle is a great actress and it’s unfair that she’s been burdened this with guy as her “husband”. I can only hope that she discovers his one-night stand with Kelly before they start having these two interact romantically.
    Y&R I know that you LOVE all the flashbacks to the past where the actors all look younger … but you shouldn’t have brought David Tom back just for those darn flashbacks. Try hiring talent that has some!

    Totally agree Joanne. The new Billy is so young looking. I can’t see viewers believing this. I think producers found “Tom” and recast him. I remember when he was on Y &R and he was a complete brat to Jill. Not buying this switch.

    Big mistake firing Michael Muhuney!!! He’s the best actor and his performance excels along with Victor and Billy. I’ve been a fan of Y/R for 47 yrs. We need Adam back in the show and that means Michael Muhuney playing the part. Michael, Billy and Phyllis made the show. Get rid of Summer instead, she does nothing for the show. Also, to the screen writers, enough of the cleavage on Summer, and Lilly dressing like a tramp w/dresses up to her waste. Shame on you screen writers! This is what caused all these problems. Now the show is going to suffer for it. I’m done watching the Y/R! Boring!!!

    I have watch Y&R since the first day it aired on TV. Billy Miller is one of the characters that CAN NOT be replaced. Although the “new” Billy favors Billy Miller he will never capture Billy’s character. Y&R is the only soap opera I still watch daily. Although I wasn’t crazy about Phyllis I do miss her character, but I hear she’s not coming back either. Y&R needs to do a better job with their actors..you have a good group of actors and need to keep them or you might loose some viewers. I would enjoy talking to someone about my feelings on Y&R. Great soap but don’t screw it up by letting your actors walk away.

    I question Jill Farren Phelps decision to fire Billy Miller and Michael Muhney, two of the most valuable actors on Y&R. Sharon Newman should have been the one that was fired. Her character should have been written out of the show years ago. Nikki’s character needs some help. Let her be happy for once, she and Victor need a rest. Digging up Nikki past is certainly not interesting. The stupid mystery with the music box and Jill is getting a little thin as well and now to bring the scheming Australian back on the show is ridiculous. Between Phelps and the writers Y&R’s ratings and viewers definitely will decline.

    Yes, I agree. I think that whoever made the decision to get rid of these actors needs to rethink it. Billy and Adam were the meat of this show. The music box mystery and Jill is implausible, the old pervert in Nikki’s past is stupid. You have such lousy writing, that you are doing more of a favor to both Billy Miller and Michael Muhney. Y & R has been composed of long time actors and building up fantastic roles that the viewers buy into. Lately it seems as if you are drawing a blank in your efforts and finally this last straw of changing cast members. Not a good move at all. We now know that soaps are a thing of the past, unless they are exceptional (the way Y & R used to be.)

    Bring Billy and Adam back, I mean no harm but this Tom character or anyone else can take Billy’s place. Killing off Adam is crazy Adam is the character you love to hate. There are some of the characters that should be killed off but not Miller and Muhney bring them back. I think whomever made those decisions needs to reevaluate. You are losing two valuable cast members. BRING THEM BACk PLEASE? Give Miller a good deal and whatever Muhney said or did you created the character so you created the real life mouthy monster.

I understand Miller wanting to move on he will be missed. I hate the idea of bring back Tom please recast ASAP! Muhney, was a great actor he should not have been fired.

    Reading all these comments, there is really nothing else to say Y&R has made a terrible mistake in firing MM and lettling Billy M slip throught their fingers. They are indeed the best actors on this show. Its ironic that the direction of Summer’s character is headed towards a man that sexually abused Nikki! I have watched Y&R since I was a teen and I am now in my 50′s, very disappointed, can’t believe Y&R is losing all the best actors, their loss will be another show’s gain. If Y&R wants to keep on keeping on they need to get MM back and Billy M. Sounds like he might have stayed if they would have given him some freedom to do other projects. Replacing either of these with another actor will never work, they are not replacable.

    It is hard when these characters leave, because the viewers have bought into certain traits and characteristics associated with their roles. I think “Billy” was cute, sexy, a bit of a rascal. I think the new “Billy” looks like a little boy. He does not have the charisma or sexual naughty boy that the first one had. As for Adam, he has alwasy played it with a bit of darkness and dishonesty. I have not yet seen his replacement, but again, it will be hard to buy into the new character. I miss Phyllis and can’t wait to see what happens there. I hope the new Phyllis can play the role as well as the previous Phyllis. Young and Restless has the honor of having superior actors and actresses playing each role.

I was so upset when Michelle Stafford left the show, but now Michael Mahoney and Billy Miller! Are you trying to lose all your viewers? You need to get them back whatever it takes. The new Billy may look a little like the old Billy, but he also looks like he could be Victoria’s son, not husband. I can’t express how disappointed I am.

    I stopped watching Y&R after the Jan 30th episode, as a matter of fact I have actually pretty much stopped watching anything on CBS.

The only good thing was I could fast forward thru all their dribble.
    It seems to me and apparently a lot of people, Eric Breadon is the major cause of discord on the set, and his character is pure evil, there is nothing redeeming about Victor.

    I agree with Sue and Jaybird. Y&R is getting rid of the characters that make the show interesting. I quit watching Bold and Beautiful because there was no plot except for couples stealing the husband or girlfriend of another couple. The sappy love couples are boring. I fast forward through them too. I think Victor needs to be tweaked a bit. Seems like he’s always saying the same thing and doing the same thing. I don’t think the show would be the same without him because there needs to be at least one villain to keep things interesting.

    I agree with Laurel. Victoria and the “new” Billy are so mismatched. I suppose it is partly because I can’t seem to get the younger Billy played by David Tom out of my head. And, the fact that Victoria looks much older, does not help either. His role had always been as that of a rascal and miscreant. I was pretty young myself, but I knew a Jerk when I saw one.Perhaps if he had played the role of Billy all along, I would not now have these images of a very immature Billy.
    The original Adam was okay for me, but did not possess the magnetism of MM. The “other” Adam, from what I had heard, left because he refused to have gay sex on the show or otherwise. MM did not flinch over it….it was only a role.
    I would like for MM to return, but if the allegations are true, then he deserves less than what he got from Y&R. Any man who would dare say anything inappropriate to a young woman, or anyone, has no right complaining about what is just or not. As a woman myself and the fact that I have a younger sister about that age, I would skin anyone alive if he accosted her in any way, shape or form.
    Nevertheless, I do not believe Adam killed Delia. I truly believe someone else was on the scene. It will take time, but as soon as the role of Adam is recast, he will be exhonourated.

Please bring Adam back to Y and R. I’m sure alot of people feel the same way that I do. Further more, I think it should be Victor gone off the show, he is so not a nice person on the show. He says he does every thing for his family, I am so sick of hearing that, Adam is his family to, but the way he treated Adam is so discusting. Bring Adam back please.

Letting Victor win all the time is booooooooooooring. I might have to say goodbye to Y&R and concentrate on Days and General Hospital or maybe start watching the Bold and the Beautiful. Way to go Y&R, keep this up and Y&R will be cancelled just like All my Children and One Life to Live. When you have good actors who really fit their roles you always have to mess it up.

He had a natural way of acting, and the chemistry between him and Victoria was electric. They should have done everything possible to keep him. As for Michael he also had a great chacater. I think the story line they gave him did make him a better person. He was also fun to watch. I will miss of them. When they change actors it takes something away from the chacater.

    The two best actors are gone off the show, doesn’t seem much reason to watch it anymore. As far as the other stupid story lines they’re ridiculous. Really…… Get rid of Sharon’s daughter old news and we really don’t want to watch a bunch of teen agers like summer and Abby sooooooooo boring. The only good characters that are left are the older ones. Let’s face the show will not be number 1 for long. Very disappointed

    I have been watching Y & R for many years and I must say this show has disappointed me, I can’t believe how you can be the best then go down the drain! The two best actors have left the show . The actor playing billy should really go to acting school what is with his facial expressions when he talks? I can’t even look at him ! Bring back Adam and the other billy or you have lost another viewer.

Although Adam was always hated and in trouble Michael played that part like none other could. He has the right demeaner for it! The new Billy definately looks way too young for Victoria! Victor is dispicable! And now bringing a so called look-alike Cassie from the dead is just a POOR storyline! I’m SOOO sick of Sharon and Nick’s on and off again love affair…MOVE ON!!!

    I am very sad and don’t care for David Tom. Didn’t like him before and am not pleased he is back as Billy. Billy Miller was so good at the role and he looked like an Abbot. He and Peter Bergman looked like they could be actual brothers. Their behavior as well as the beautiful hair, awesome eyebrows and breath taking smiles. Hope they put him back in the role. I’m sure David Tom is a wonderful actor but he’s not Billy Abbott that role belongs to Billy Miller!!!!!!

I’m really sad to hear about him being fired he was great in that role & I was looking forward to his reappearance in the future with Chelsea. Usually when long time characters are replaced by new actors it is really hard to get used to & sometimes you never do get used to new actor in that role. I’m also very sad to see that Billy Miller has been replaced. Both of these men were excellent in the roles they played & I will miss them :(

    I have watched the Bell Productions since they lived in Lake Geneva and Chicago. This has saddened me tremendously. The role of Billy was played with reality and passion. He brought life to Victoria; a totally spoiled whiner. Adam was a “real” person with “real” imperfections. His ability to portray an individual caught between being accountable and finally having a moral life with family goals spoke to many people struggling in our society. It was a pleasure to watch his transformation with Chelsea. This change in actors will not promote viewer loyalty. Insignificant roles can master new faces but not these pivotal personalities. Shame on you…………

    It’s now February 21st and both actors have been gone for over three weeks. It is plainly obvious that there is a huge hole in this show now. Sorry, but David Tom isn’t cutting it as Billy Abbott. Billy Miller established a new level for the character and Mr Tom just can’t deliver this kind of performance. As for Mr Muhney’s absence, it is beyond filling. He was the show’s future and now there isn’t one. I don’t care what actor they bring in to play the role of Adam Newman, but Michael Muhney was Adam Newman, just like Eric Braeden is Victor Newman. Some roles can’t be recast because an actor establishes the character and the audience connects with them. Michael Muhney is that kind of actor. Y&R should bring him back or just leave the character off the canvas going forward.

    Ok here’s my take on this whole thing with Adam. First of all he’s my favorite character on the show and I don’t condone alleged actions involving his coworker but you just have to have him come back. I’m sure he’s sorry for what he’s done..if in fact he did what he’s accused of. Look at it this way, who else is Victor going to be cruel and obnoxious to besides his wife and other kids. And I think Tom fits Billy better that the other Billy. He’s a good actor. Oh and another thing I’ve been watching this show since it began and have see so many changes go on, but these story lines are sometimes rediculous. My husband and I would love to join the writing team for a day or two just to put in some good ideas. We can think of a couple other characters that can be let go and they wouldn’t be missed. Thanks for your time….BRING MICHAEL BACK

    Bill & Michael will be missed. I also think the new Billy is to young with the old fashioned Victoria (she needs to be spruced up). The new Abby is boring. Sharon needs to confess so Nick can move on to someone worthy of him. The show is going in circles, why is Ian being entered in the show and Colllin back – who has not changed. I’m tired of all the circles of the show. I have been a fan longer than 20-years. I guess sicking Clohe will be going away also.

    Not to take anything away from the hard work of David Tom, but I have seen the episodes since Billy Miller resigned and the role and intenseness of the situation surrounding the role are just not the same.

    Body language and stature add to a character’s performance and believability in a role and Billy Miller had the all around fit and performance for the role especially as it relates to the death of his child Delia. Tom seems at times to over play and at moments, underplay the scenes, maybe because he did not have the preparation and closeness to the months of feeling the ambience of what was to come and which finally manifested itself.

    The scenes that are absent Billy Miller at the moment makes the Emmy winning role and Daytime show appear more as a theatrical play instead of an award winning Daytime show. In theater, you can throw people together in a role even if naturally it would never be believed that such people would ever (relationship wise) match up in the real world. Amelia and Miller were a believable oneness because you could picture them together for real. It’s not the same believability with Amelia and David. However, business is business and sometimes you ‘gotta’ do what you ‘gotta’ do.

    As far to the fact give the new replacement time to fit in, after all it takes time for any change.
    Adam’s character actor though could never really find his way to embrace the emotional connection needed for his role, as far as being in career of acting I think he will do well in another role.

It needs to be the same Adam so he can show that he really does have feelings and wants to fight for them. That’s what a true father’s love is about. Let us see what kind of life he can give his family on hi own.

And after it taking forever to like the character of Adam why did this one get fired. He was an excellent actor. So believable.. Back when he was a jerk, I would not have cared if he got fired, but when he started becoming a decent human being, I liked him. Why was he fired? And Billy Miller, why did he quit? I do believe Billy Miller should be able to make it in movies as good looking as he is. I remember Tom a long time ago. He is ok, but, since you changed to him, I won’t be rooting for he and Victoria’s marriage.. The actor makes all the difference in the world, and I almost cried when Miller left.

    Call me crazy, but I’m STILL not 100% convinced that it was Adam who hit Delia (I, too, like Tad I think it was, think/thought it was Kelly — and this seems to be a pretty popular alternative to Adam).

    They keep showing Adam alive as it looks like he is being privately/secretly cared for somewhere secluded. I’m willing to bank though that it’s not MM who returns unfortunately. I miss Billy Miller, too. I could definitely relate to Adam’s role.

    I happened to see an episode Friday ( it was on at work during lunch), Are they serious, the whole show was BORING, no decent story line. That said, seeing the new Billy with Victoria is actually quite comical, no chemistry between them and he seems MUCH to young for the role. The last seen when Vicki told him to leave was the funniest tho, the pouty look, with his lower lip sticking out reminded me of my 4 year old niece when she doesn’t,t get her own way…too funny.
    I’m not sorry I stopped watching when Mike Muhney left– there is no story line that is worth watching now !!!

    I am a very long term fan of Y and R. I thought Billy Miller was absolutely perfect as Billy Abbott and really great with Victoria. Even though David Tom previously had the roll, Billy Miller really evolved the character and was so lovable. I agree that David Tom does not have chemistry with Victoria and does seem too young. His personality and voice seem awkward. Really will miss Adam also, but I understand there were extenuating circumstances…

    I am so devastated over Billy Miller leaving Y&R! He was such a hottie and I looked forward to seeing him everyday as much as possible on each episode. I am very disappointed about David Tom stepping back into the role!
    Billy please come back!! We miss you!

    Loved Billy Miller as Billy Abbott, David Tom may have stepped back into the role but he is so out of character compared to the personality that Billy Miller gave the role.

    David Toms isnt doing it for me in the role of Billy Abbott. I really miss the previous actor, Billy Miller, as he was so much more convincing, a great actor!!! As the new guy playing Adam’s role hasnt been revealed as of yet, I cant say how I feel about him , but really did like Michael Muhney. He will be missed. He truly was a very convincing actor, and was great at the portrayal of Adam. Sincerely, B. D.

    Agreed, David Tom is a huge bust as Billy Abbott. He’s playing the character like he did years ago without any growth into a man. As for Adam, just bring back Michael Muhney. His absence is a huge hole in the show. All conflicts can be resolved. Y&R needs Muhney badly.

    Storyline with Jill and the boring Aussie is terrible. Also Ian is boring, I am sick of Neil’s ex also. Move on Neil. Make Phyllis’s come alive or bring Sheila back. Show is getting very boring. I have been watching from the very beginning. Find myself fast forwarding most of the show because it is boring. Do something before this show gets cancelled too.

    The show may be going through a bumpy patch, but it still has a lot to offer!
    And will get even stronger, too. I am wondering if the Billy role will be recast
    because the current Billy just doesn’t fit and doesn’t seem like he ever will.
    Guess time will tell. I’m still loving Chelsea and waiting to see new Adam, etc.
    Still loving Dylan and Avery, and so much more.

    Adam and Billy both gave award winning final performances! I hate that they were their last episodes. Michael was the best Adam, I hate to see Billy Miller and Michael Muhney leave the show. The new/previous Billy has been in a constant state of “whine” since taking over the role. (not exactly the man that Billy Miller was as Billy Abbott) We have lost too many of our favorites recently, our beloved Catherine, then Phyllis, now Billy and Adam. Bring back Billy miller and Michael Muhney, and while your at it Phyllis too …please!

    The new Billy isn’t a very good actor. He’s not realistic.
    It’s like he’s reading the script. He doesn’t fit in. It’s like he’s trying really hard and over doing it.
    Billy Miller was perfect for the character he is a very
    good actor. Too bad he left. I liked Michael Muhney
    as well. Hopefully the person they choose to replace him can act and is realistic.

    I will never believe that Michael did what they have said he did….I think he was set up and further more HE is what made the show interesting. Not the lady who has charged him. Why did Billy quit? I bet he quit because he doesn’t believe it either.

    They better bring Michael back because if Cloe leaves too. you will have lost three of the best on the show and that means a real bust!!!!

    Well Y&R, you just shot yourselves in the foot and perhaps inflicted a fatal wound for the show. Both Billy and Adam characters were cast perfectly. The new Billy is not right, age wise and as a mate for Victoria. Y&R staff save your pennies as your show is not long for this World. Good luck to the 2 fine actors who contributed so much to their roles on Y&R. I will be looking for both of them in prime time or the movies.

    I will not be tuning in on Y&R anymore.

    I did not line the role that Mr. Tom played prior . Yes I will miss both Billy Miller and Michael Muhney . I think Michael and Billy played the role to the nines. I think it was a terrible mistake to fire Miichael . I wish that Billy Miller would of re signed his contract. I will miss both if them . Again I do not care for David Tom playing the role of Billy .

    Billy Miller was superb as Billy Abbott. Although, David Tom played the role years ago, Mr. Miller absolutely claimed Billy as his own. His interpretation was exquisite. There is no replacing Billy Miller.

    Michael Muhney made me like the character of Adam in spite of my logical desire to despise him. He brought so many facets to the role. He will be missed, to be sure.

    The new (old) Billy is so unbelievable. He still seems like a kid as compared to the previous Billy. This Billy has zero chemistry with anyone and it’s hard to see where Victoria would bother fighting and why Kelly would find him the least bit interessting in the first place. They should write him off!

    The new Billy is nothing but a whiner as is Kelly–they need to be together, but I hate watching this new Billy as he is such a wimp. The ole Billy played the part to a tea and was perfect–should have kept him. I really liked Adam also, but will have to see about the new Adam whether he will be as good as the old one. Funny when the ole Jill came back, it was okay because she is a good actress but this Billy needs some practice somewhere else and really don’t think Victoria even likes to kiss him—-hope there are some changes in the future–been watching since the beginning!

    My God – who chose Tom to play Billy. He acts like a 3 year old and sounds like one too!. By far the worse actor I have seen on any show. Really, really bad. Enough to make me say goodbye to Y&R. The old Billy at least looked old enough to play the part and was actually quite a good actor. Why all the changes to Y&R. You are one of the few soaps left and most people really like the show. Not one person I know likes the new Billy – he is awful.

    Soooo sooo sad. The new Billy isn’t coming CLOSE to believeable- poor Victoria trying to act like she has a meaningful history with that actor…just sad, he cannot pull it off…and she’s so good! The whole idea was to have Billy be the guy from the wrong side of the tracks that Victor doesn’t approve of, and the roll was being played perfectly (plus he’s hella hot, and DUH that’s why we watch!) The new Billy is a geeby-faced wimp, he’s unwatchable. ALSO I totally miss Adam, I loved to disapprove of his character’s actions, but man he’s a good actor PERFECT for the roll. No matter how wrong I thought his actions were, he was riveting and a joy to watch. Bummer things happening here.

    Well said!
    It’s a shame cause I had hoped new Billy would improve by now.
    But he really has become hard to watch, so I think I will start to
    FF through his scenes.
    I don’t like new Billy for Victoria, but don’t like her with Stitch, either!
    He is shady, and after the rollercoaster ride with Billy all these years,
    would be nice to see her with a good guy. Not a boring guy, cause soaps
    are about drama in large part of course, but just someone decent!

    I like most people having been watching this show for years, NOBODY can replace the old Billy ( I think Miller). He was the BEST ACTOR and the best looking EVER!!!!! I don’t care for this new one. As for Adam I did hear rumors on why he was fired and I must say if there is any truth to that rumor I completely understand why the firing took place. I did like him as an actor but am disappointed in what I heard. So to recap I think you guys should do anything to get the old Billy back!!!!

    What a bloody shame! Two of the best male actors that have ever appeared on the Y&R. Billy’s replacement just does not fit the role.

Too bad!!!!
