    Cynthia Watros needs to go. She doesnt fit in with the Y&R family.

    I am loving Cynthia on Y&R. She is why I want to watch soaps, she brings the drama and the conflict. I have no time for happy couples.

    I can’t stand Chelsea and Abby and Avery is boring. I wish they would make Victor nicer to Sharon. Im sick of his attitude and all they show is that Connor kid

    Jeff replied

    I love Cynthia on the Show too she is bringing a refreshing change of pace rather than grown children of victor competing to see who get’s all of his attention to me that is very old. Loving Seeing Judith Chapman back as Gloria too!

    This show won’t keep my attention after Muhney and Miller are gone Jan 30th. Only soap I watch and it will be the last. Finding out what goes backstage with fight fights and EB knocking out Peter Bergmans teeth, Jeanne Cooper pinching groins and grabbing butts of the young men she worked with, backstabbing, trying to destroy a man’s livelihood and reputation with slander, jealousy and egos. Oh and lets not forget the high school CLIQUES. Pretty much soured me on a show I’ve watched since the 70′s. It’s the real life version of the movie Soap Dish. Lost my respect for actors I’ve tuned in to see for decades. And really Jerry Douglass did u have to put a knife in the back of a man when he’s down TOO? What is wrong with you people?? all of the veterans DISGUST me now. I cannot stand any of them now. Will be pulling the plug on my set for good.

    Michael Muhney is NOT the star of this show. His character has been soooooo boring this past year. He was soooo much better with Sharon

    Samantha replied

    Michael Muhney is the star of the show! Writers tried to sabotage the character by not including Sharon anymore, but MM made the character so three dimensional we didn’t care who he is with. I have been watching the show with my mom since I was 4. No character has interested me as much as Adam or Michael Muhney, the actor. This guy may be a jerk or egotistical but he has talent.

    CW doesn’t fit on Y&R and her character is just horrible. What are TPTB thinking?

    Kim H. replied

    I wish Chelsea would leave with Adam. I am tired of all scenes pertaining to Victor and Adam and his baby. Isn’t there any other stories they can do.

    I won’t either, Tana. Losing Billy and Michael causes me to lose this show. Looking at that photo, you can see that David Tom is still the same wimpy looking guy he has always been. there is no way he can do justice to THIS Billy Abbott. They got rid of him the first time for a reason….

    Linda…back in the day, OLTL fired David Tom from his role of Paul Cramer because of DT’s cocaine problem. Let’s go back to 1992. David Tom was SO ANNOYING in that horror movie Stepfather 3 that I (along with A LOT of my friends) kept rooting for the stepfather…LOL!!!!! And, Linda, you are so RIGHT ON…David Tom is SUCH A WIMP!!!!! B-O-R-I-N-G…LOL!!!!!

    I sure can’t picture David Tom with Victoria!

    I think I’ll watch DOL and see who they get to replace Bo. Who knows, maybe it will be Michael. He can play any role that they give him, that’s for sure. He could play son, to the other Victor and be a Kiriakis this time. When he comes back on DOL, that side of him could be shown.

    It’s not my Billy, not as interested in the Y&R like I use to be..

    Y&R without—– Katherine, Phyllis, Billy, Adam, it is empty ..

    I do not care for the ‘new’ cast member’s ..

    The stories have been terribly boring ..

    Now when I see Victor/EB I will want to punch for MM ..

    I do not know if I will carry on with Y&R or not..
    GH is awesome!!

    I agree, Y&R has been through such a tough time this year, Jeanne Cooper’s death, losing Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller and Michael Muhney, which were all in my top five of most talented actors/most interesting characters… All the newbies suck… the only one I like are Cynthia Watros because she’s a great actress and hopefully has the chance to be crazy… but all the stories are boring, except for Adam/Chelsea’s reunion, but that’s ending now too because MM is gone… I really hope Y&R changes this year, it will be really sad to see JFP and Jean Passanante ruin another show.

    I was really hoping that with David Tom taking the role back from Billy Miller that they would end the Victoria/Billy pairing and the Kelly affair. David looks younger than Billy Miller did and would look more age appropriate with Elizabeth Hendrickson or Melissa Claire Egan. In this photo, he looks like the son or youngest brother of the others.
    I haven’t been a fan of Billy Miller’s storyline’s as Billy Abbott in years and would really like to see Billy go back to being Jill and John Abbott’s son, work at Jabot with Ashely and Jack and fight the good fight against the Newman’s not remained married to one which keeps him in bed with them.
    I would like to see Billy Abbott emerge from this un-casting of Billy Miller as the Strong, Smart Young Abbott he was intended to be not Victor Newman’s Billy Boy who is the constant screw up.

    I want to add that I think Billy Miller is an amazing actor and my opinion in no way reflects his skills as a performer. I think he is in for big things in his future and wish him all the best. My opinion only reflects my displeasure at the direction Billy Abbott’s character has gone in the last 3 years.

    PLEASE let David Tom’s Return be the end of this quadrangle, the end of Victoria and Billy, the affair with Kelly and the end of all things Billy Newman.

    It’s clear in this photo that David Tom’s Billy Abbott looks like a younger brother or a son. He has youthful looks and Billy Miller had mature looks which means David’s Billy should be paired with Elizabeth Hendrickson or Melissa Claire Egan. He doesn’t fit in with the older end of the cast and he shouldn’t have to, for God’s sake…Billy Abbott was always too young for Victoria Newman. I don’t even know why they are bothering with this story. They should take the opportunity of Billy Miller’s exit to redirect the character back to his Abbott roots as Jill and John’s son. He should be side by side with Jack fighting against the Newman’s at Jabot not in bed with one of them.

    Welcome Back David! I hope your stories aren’t as God Awful as Billy Miller’s have been for the last 3 years.

    Let me be clear, my displeasure is directed completely at the show’s writing and storyline’s and not at all at Billy Miller who I think is a talented actor who was amazing in every bad story he was given. I wish Billy Miller all the best in the future.

    David Tom… looks out of place… in this “quadrangle”

    He would be better with Chloe.

    Victoria… Kelly… and Stitch… are an adult sophisticated LOT… better!

    my theory… on building Y&R…

    is bringing back the Abbotts…..

    should… Eileen Davidson and Beth Maitland… want to return. they bring so much memories back to the show… and make.. Genoa City relevant… doesn’t Jack come to… when they are around…

    making the show.. about two old horses… Victor and Jack… is no fun… and lacks vitality…. what’s the point… with no heirs… and no passing the torch

    JFP.. you screwed us…. out of the pleasures of MM and BM… ie: Adam & Billy

    Time to refocus… and make the stronghold… The Abbotts

    imagine… if Ashley, Traci, and Jack… with nuBilly… reigning… as the #1 family

    it certainly doesn’t work, any more.. to feature the dull… so overdone… blah.. Newmans… LOL

    why? Victor can bellow and hold court.. all he can… it’s laughable…
    tired Nikki… who has no mind of her own… can rot at the ranch
    Nick.. can you believe.. he hasn’t had a story… in months and years? do we miss him?
    Victoria… had better be paired with Stitch… and she can disown herself from the Newmans… and live out her life… only going back… if TPTB… deem her and always… the head of Newman Enterprises… she’s the only Newman that the audience still cares about… she needs that happy married life… with her own child

    what’s the purpose of this Newman Clan? nothing! they lack fire… and interesting

    i’m with you 100% Shawna… I’ve loved this show… for 20 -30 years… and I can honestly.. say my heart is not with this…

    year 2013 is the year… everything went wrong… and Genoa City died.

    ————

    of the 4 remaining shows… left… and I don’t even want to give JFP.. any credence… but… Genoa City… is in a state of shock… a major overhaul… and has left fans in an upheaval… and we can’t believe it… i’ll roar as loud as i can… for the love of this show

    I hope… that Tristan Rogers… re-invigorates… Jill and Colin… and brings some thing… to The Neil Winters troupe as well

    God! help this! LOL… it’s staggering to think about how badly the cast must be struggling… what to do ? with the whole cast… for lack of script’ure? they certainly don’t listen to the fans…

    they need to breath life back in to Gloria… she’ll help bring interest back to Michael, Kevin, and Lauren… heck… even Fen

    they should try and get back… Emme Rylan… as the original Abby… she’ll solidify the Abbotts… and keep the Newman connection

    as for Victor and Nikki… they can fester and rot together at the Newman Ranch…
    coma these two…

    ———

    for the life of me… I don’t know… what I do know… until JFP speaks up… this fan… will .. hopefully.. with fans.. who are tired of disrespect… will align… and leave CBS in droves… and just leave well enough alone…. that this once grand dame.. of Serial… is just that…

    a thing of the past

    I think Amelia and David look very cute next to eachother so I’m curious about their chemistry and how their story deepens.

    Kelly is a God awful character and I’m sorry but Cynthia Watros and Billy Miller have less than zero chemistry together, it’s honestly painful. BM and AH’s last months should’ve been spent together and happy. Not sure how she’s gonna have it with baby faced David Tom either.

    Sean Carrigan is a great addition to the show

    No problem with David Tom replacing Billy Miller. Tom looks the part and always did and Miller was getting a bit tiresome as the always-in-the-wrong Billy Abbott. Something about Cynthia Watros is distracting, It is something in her facial expressions. She always seems on the verge of exhaustion. Sean Carrigan is excellent, likable, believable. He maintains interest in the Stitch character. I wonder had he been Niki’s son if Victor would have been more accepting, but no, Victor accepts nothing that is beyond his control.

As a so-called quadrangle, Billy/Kelly/Stitch/Victoria has nothing but FUTURE DISASTER written all over it!!!!!

  23. wolfsmistress says:

    Since JFP has been trying for months to break up the supercouple of Billy/Victoria, the best way she found was to NOT give Miller “outs” in his contract, thus forcing him to leave what HE called “the best acting job of my life” and re-hiring David Tom, who’s babyface looks don’t really fit the now-mature, fatherly Billy Abbott.

    JFP has been bucking to break up the duo for almost a year now, especially after neither her Dylan/Avery coupling nor the Dylan/Chelsea marriage went over with fans (too many clamoring that Dylan was a sap for believing Adam’s child was his). When she tried pairing Dylan with Sharon, some folks were all right with it, but the “Shick” fans were still rooting for them, so again, Dylan failed. She even had Dylan become friends with Billy and Victoria and showed some interest with Dylan toward Vicki, but again, no luck there.

    Now, JFP has blow the couple out of the water by having Billy have “grief sex” with Kelly, a woman who may have already broken up another man’s family, and Stitch and Victoria are growing closer because of their concern for Johnny’s well-being and Victoria’s own loneliness and worry about her husband and marriage, not to mention a deep-rooted, niggling doubt about Kelly.

    With Miller no longer on the show as of Jan. 30, and Tom coming in on Feb. 3, I’m sure the couple will be broken up before the spring sweeps, and Victoria will be seeing Stitch and Billy will be with Kelly. Once again, the FOJ’s will win out on the show…

    I like the story, but yeah – hard to call it the hottest quad when two newbies and a recast are involved, give it some time to build before you say that – The MM kerfuffle is actually the best thing that could have happened to DT, if it wasn’t for that all the focus would be on him replacing BM, now he is pretty much sliding in under the radar, which will give him more of a chance in settling in as the new Billy.

    If you put David Tom & Billy Miller’s pictures side by side they look a alike. The reason I like Billy Miller when he took the part was because he did remind me so much of Tom who I loved in the part. I like BM though I do admit I did get tired of the constant grinning as I have said before, but since they could not work out a deal I think they were smart to bring Tom back. In light of what has happened over there probably one of the right things they have done.

    Dylan’s angst is so tiresome He found his birth mother got the love of his life back and a business. One of his best buddies lives in town and can prescribe sleeping pills.Who wants to stick around to see Ian Ward damage him further.My guess is he will rescue Niki from some Ian situation and finally make the grade with Victor. Kind of like Michael Gregson on Downton Abbey earned a little approval from Lord Grantham.
