    If he’s tied to Dylan and provides MORE backstory for this character AND more screen time to this character, I’m sure most of the long time viewers like myself are not in favor of it.

    I don’t understand why Dylans military friend can’t be Chance. Chance is the character Y&R viewers know, not only as an adult w/MAB ,but for a decade in the 90s as little Phillip. So why didn’t they cast Sean Carrigan as nuChance?

    Not only would he serve as Dylans friend but he’d be important in Katherine Chancellors funeral. He could even bring Dylan to the funeral with him.

    Well Dylan and this Chelsea have the most chemisry and that is sad because Sharon and Adam should of had a Summer wedding and a boy on the way by now. The show is destroyed. After 30 years watching I am so upset. I wanted Rose to be the real Drucilla and shadam back. the show is so boring. Lily and Tyler who cares. Avery has to be with Chelsea the most boring women on the show. Chloe is a joke Leslie and Neil please who cares! Maybe is Sharon and Dylan have that St Christoper pendent she was wearing also March 13th and Dylan had the same from his father they will be siblings and this Stitch will be a great match for Sharon. Who cares about Adam now . Victors pathetic puppet. Please write a better show! No more talk about Chelsea and her baby boring lies :(

    Doe she have to do anything at all? We could just look at him! (It seems JFP is upping the bar on handsome men in Genoa City to match the very stylish women. … Just remember they need strong stories to tell!!!)

    Seriously, I am glad Y&R is developing Dylan with some backstories and relationships. I have to wonder though if Stitch may be someone up to no good in the long term.

    While I am all for handsome men on my screen…it shouldn’t be at the expense of those stylish women.

    We saw Nikki for maybe the second or third time this month?

    New characters tied to new characters are not what I want to watch. And especially since the new characters mostly don’t have stories of their own. Unless of course it’s Dylan. Plenty of air time there.

    Why Dylan? …..he’s had been eating up the show and his story is lame, over-pointed in letting the viewers know “see Dylan (Steve) is a good guy”….give me a break! w\forced flashbacks (grating), every member of his family is dead mother, pop, baby….way to much to ask longtime fans to watch this “boring” character …making the show boring. As for YR’s men they have some very stylish men now and yes turn the heat up in hunk factor is always pleasant but don’t forget the Stylish Women of GC…JFP!

    Why not tie him to Adam\school jester, Nick\prep school, Traci\Tim’s son…many possibilities for fans to watch if connected…again I ask Why Dylan? UGH!

    Good grief! WHY? Dylan/Steve is so boring. Why give him more ties? There are so many more characters on the show that are tons more interesting. Yesterday I thought, where are Glo and Jeffrey? Glo is who got me hooked on the show to begin with. It sure wouldn’t have been Dull Dylan.

    It depends is this a one shot visit to provide some background on Dylan, or a long term character who will be on the scene for a while? If longer term, well I don’t think we really need more newbies, no matter how hunky, taking screen time from established characters– but a short term thing, just to round out Dylan would be okay–

    Lawrence it is not even the same show pulled it from my DVR right after the tribute to Jeanne Cooper. Why all the sudden did we lose Michelle Stafford? Answer she got tired of watching the train wreck called Young & The Restless!

    Y&R with the recent loss of Jeanne Cooper now has a missing link, bringing in more new characters is not the answer. Since JFP has taken over, I FF through many scenes and characters such as Dylan. I prefer GH to Y&R and never dreamed after nearly 40 years of viewing I would make such a statement. JFP is a hack job as was MAB. I call for her resignation and re-instatement of Kay Alden. Just sayin! Perhaps when the ratings start dropping to record lows, CBS will make this happen.

    I’m waiting until Kay’s death is addressed on screen.

    If we don’t get something fantastic, that will last long term and that mansion goes dark…at that time I am going to declare war on JFP.

    I’m doing the same thing. How they deal with Jill & the mansion will tell me if this show is over for me.

    No offense against this new guy – but how many more people does Y&R need? They can’t hold on to the great vets they have. How much longer will JG & JFP get away with this?

    I know a lot get ignored, but if we scream loud enough it’ll happen. Just like with LML and MAB.

    She led GH to the point of near cancellation. Hope CBS gets wise if the numbers start to slip.

    Would serve that show killing witch right. The irony: Jill Farren Phelps is leading “Young and the Restless,” the #1 soap, when it is finally cancelled.

    ENUF with the new characters!!! Create stories for the characters that have been on the canvas for some time! I know you have to have new blood to infuse life into a show, but this is a bit much! Could this be one of the reasons Michelle Stafford is leaving the Y&R? She became a supporting player to her daughter’s story(ies). This woman is too talented and still hot, not to have her own storyline.

    Reply

    Sandy replied

    Why is Michelle Stafford leaving. Y&R did not say why nor did Michelle herself. I would love to know as I would like to follow her . She is such a strong and talented actress. I will miss her a lot and it will leave a big hole in the line-up of remaining female artists. Anyone know why?

    Oh, goody,,,ANOTHER new face. So far, almost everyone JFP has brought on has been duller than a dirt sandwich. Dylan is just so bland. His relationship with Chelsea is like watching leaves fall from the trees.

    Tyler & Leslie (I know she has been around a while but never front & center) are just snoozeville. I don’t give a pig’s butt about them or the mysterious Rose. Poor, Kristoff St John cannot catch a break. I swear he was more interesting with Sophia so that is really telling as far as this new match up.

    The other new guy, Mason….they just don’t seem to know what to do with him.

    Not crazy about the Abby recast. She just looks too old when compared to Emme Rylan (who is very youthful looking).

    While I wasn’t wild about the actor playing Kyle the recast is just another dud.

    After Jeanne Cooper’s death the last thing viewers want to see is show after show with all these new faces & characters front & center. The vets need to be on at a minimum 3 days a week. Niki has been so backburnered she might as well be an extra.

    JFP seems bound & determined to destroy the characters of Kevin & Chloe….her way of pushing them out totally?

    I cannot see how the show can possibly retain #1 status with this woman at the helm. I guess there is someone out there worse than MAB and that’s pretty scary.

    Fan & Faved!!!
    I’m not sure WHAT the new regime has in mind but it isn’t working!! This is not Y&R!! Where is the intelligent storytelling; characters that make sense??? All of the newbies are so empty and useless!

    What audience are they trying to appeal to?

    Reply

    PatF replied

    I think Jill is scary in a different way than Maria.

    She seems more arrogant and oblivious about the history of the show. Pushing SB to the forefront proves it. Scrapping the score totally proves it. Burning down the ranch for a new set we never see proves it. All the recasts and new faces prove it.

    Maria at least told stories for the characters on the screen. Often they were bizarre. And when we saw new characters, they were usually tied to core characters. Not totally new ones who came complete with back story.

    But I hate to say it but when I balance the last two…MAB and JFP…I can at least tune in and for the most part like the storytelling. But then again, that’s Josh and not Jill. I think we’d have had an even better show if Maria NEVER wrote but served as EP. Who knows, and too late now. We are stuck…for now.

    Hope he has more personality! I love the character, but the actor, Steve Burton, has no personality, a lack of acting ability (and I’m not asking for much, it is just a soap), and I don’t find him attractive at all. So far his only purpose is to keep Chelsea away from Sharon’s Adam. ;) Honestly, whatever scene he’s in, the other actors carry him. Jessica Collins, even Joshua Morrow.

    To by pass the politics of the show for a min. Just to give a shout out to sean carrigan as stitch. Send my congrats and best of luck for the new spot on the show. Sean goes back as a friend of the family from the time he was born. he comes from a very large family being one of eight. He is a graduate of george mason university, where he had a full ride scholarship for wrestling and from the time he could walk almost, was boxing and was trained by his father Pat Carrigan.

    In college he turned pro as a boxer and went with a 9-0-1 record as a pro. watch his video on you tube hitting a heavy bag and you will see. If you go on you tube you will see his brother and youngest of the eight ronnie Carrigan. Who now has turned pro as a boxer after well over a 100 plus am-mature fights and has been trained by the father Pat carrigan as well .

    I love Steve Burton. He is a superb actor. Sharon wears me out. Avery is another sensitive actress who belongs with Nick. I am sick of Kevin, Chole, Neil, Leslie, Courtney, Noah, Jill, Cain, Lily and even Esther.
    I love Stitch and would like to see him as a doc at the hospital with his fam with him. It is really sad that Phyllis is gone, probably one of the best characters on the show to love and hate. Nikki and Victor make me sick and Kyle and Summer need to get together and all of sick Sharon’s secrets resolved. Chelsea and Adam need to be together. Just my fairytale!

    I think Stitch is Nikki’s biological son. We know nothing about his family and they had to bring a new character in to fill the role
