165 September 24th, 2012 Y&R’s Head Writer, Josh Griffith Talks Cast Cuts, Sharon Newman & How He Plans To Refocus The Canvas!

Courtesy/CBS

In his first in-depth interview since returning as head writer of The Young and the Restless, Josh Griffith in a fantastic chat with TV Guide  talks about his plans for Genoa City, and all the cast changes at The Young and the Restless.  Griffith served as Y&R’s head writer and executive producer back in 2007-2008 during the infamous writer’s strike and now is back in full force dealing with the fallout from Maria Arena Bell’s direction for the beloved characters of the number one series.  Here are just a few interesting excerpts from the interview

Griffith on if he was thinking of changing the previous regimes scripts before they made it to air, since his material does not start airing till October 12th:    “It was a more interesting challenge to work with what I was left with and tailor my ideas to pick up from there. You don’t want to go in and start messing with what is already written and suddenly shift the story 180 degrees. The audience would feel jerked around. It’s always a challenge in these transition periods. Sure, we made little tweaks here and there but we made the decision to officially start our work with show number 10,011 and only look forward.”

Griffith if Sony had specific requests on who should get fired which included in this round: Genie Francis, Marcy Rylan, Debbi Morgan and Jennifer Landon:   “No. They asked Jill Farren Phelps (EP, Y&R) and me where we wanted to go with the show. We told them which characters we felt would give us the most heat and which ones wouldn’t, and they were fine with our choices. We were inclined to make even more cast cuts but both Sony and CBS wanted to be careful. They felt too much head-lobbing would not bode well for the way the fans see our tenure. We also came in with a budgetary mandate from Sony and really had to tighten the belt. We looked at the characters that didn’t have long-reaching history and connection to the heart of the show and made the tough call to cut them loose so we can focus on the core.”

Griffith on the mess of character Sharon Newman played by Sharon Case, and how he plans on resolving the character’s psychotic behavior and getting her back to the Sharon fans had originally come to love:  “In order to rebuild the character of Sharon, we’re going to take her to the edge and over it, to a point where she has a total mental breakdown. And then she’s going to find salvation in a very surprising — yet inevitable — way.  She will cause major damage to the Newman family, damage that’s possibly irreparable, specifically to Victor , Nick and Victoria.   And out of that absolute breakdown she’s going to be rescued and nurtured back to mental health, so we come out on the other end of the story with a stronger, more together, more evolved Sharon, with a love story at the center of her recuperation. When I first saw what had been done to the character I went, “Whoa!” Then I embraced it and saw it as the opportunity for an even bigger story that will take three to four months — the fall and the resurrection of Sharon.”

So soapers, what do you think of Griffith’s take on how he will reposition Genoa City?  Are you happy with the decision of the recent cast-cuts?  Are you glad to hear how Griffith wants to take the character of Sharon Newman?  Weigh-in!

    Well in Murphy’s defense, THESE DAYS he is on every once in a blue moon or when they need an extra body at the holiday pool parties. :-)

    Esther is not on that much either, but she has been around for quite some time. Then again, the Newman’s used to have that Miguel (I think) as their caretaker and he is gone. I suppose they could drop Esther if they really wanted to but it would not be fair to Valentine. Does she still work as a flight attendant too?

    Daniel caught on, but except with the death of Cassie, they have not written good story for him. There is so much potential being Lucy’s father, but they don’t use it. He had something with both Amber and Abby, but they blew it. There was a little something with Lily back in the Cassie days (maybe the Lily recast more than Khalil). He has a great friendship with Kevin. He had nothing with Eden. He has potential with Heather, but it looks like they are blowing that one too. I just with Michael Graziadei would cut that hair and go back to the handsome young man that he was in the opening. I think he might be able to be taken seriously then. But I hear that Graziadei as well as Billy Miller may each have a foot out the door anyway and I wish them well if that is what they decide.

    But I absolutely hate the firing of Marcy Rylan. I can kind of justify the others, but Abby has ties to everyone. They will recast her, I know and it is not right. I am liking Genevieve these days as she genuinely cares for amnesiatic Victor – they could explore that if they wanted to.

    Daniel blew it with Amber . She was best with him and Daisy is really cool I love Daisy

    Chelsea is a snooze and Victor and nikki are pathetic and so old and over time to move over for the 20 and 30 something crowd

    william replied

    Sharon is a staple character so diverse and love her work . So happy she will be on top again she has been through so much . Wish and hope she get’s through the bad stuff quick . Great work Sharon Case and MF for the article!!!!

    peaches replied

    I’m about to pull the plug on this TV series as well. If Josh G is taking up from where the previous writer left off, why is the “lost Victor” plot still futile? Why Genevive not telling Victor is alive, why Billy did not tell the family Victor was alive at the beginning, why Victor see that Genevie and Billy looks familiar and does not see himself recognizable, why did he disappear the way he did, why does he always disappears, from that dull looking bar (no one knows where he’s gone) and then bamm! he reappears? This storyline is awful; no originality, no stimulative effects; it is an awful storyline.

    Chelsea is very boring. Daniel needs to clean up himself; do something with that hair and that facial stuff, Nick tries to be tough, but as soon as someone comes to him with a sad story, he becomes empathatic everytime. He cannot keep a firm answer. Every time he tries to make a firm decision, he breaks everytime. He sways whichever way the wind blows. Nick needs to manup more, he’s too weak and so is Kevin. Kevin and Nick is about the same. Kevin has no backbone whatso ever…to timid; unlike Jack..this man stands firm to what he says and carry his decisions out and end it quick.

    I like:
    Tucker, the manipulator
    Victor, the rock
    Adam, the enforcer
    Nikki, the noble queen
    Billy and Victoria, the tranquility couple
    Jack, the strong-willed
    Phyllis, the fearless
    Paul, the bonafide
    Michael, the invigorator

    When will Paul be free. Give us a break with these long drawn out story lines. In the beginning a plot can be interesting, but when it goes on and on and on, you no longer have an interesting story but a stupid and boring plot.

    You need to do something with Devon, Cheseas mom, Gloria and her husband’s roles…b o r i n g!!! I don’t like a plot when I can predict all the time what is going to happen. With the Y&R, just think of something stupid and you have guessed the punchline of the story.

We are so praying you have the information from the fans that even though Victor Newman is a icon we know he is NOT God!!!! Holy Cow! PLEASE!!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sharon and would LOVE to see her Sexy strong and on TOP!!!! BUT!!!! NOT CRAZY!!!! You have a dynamite actress for daytime use her! She is the greatest actress this show has right now and a Emmy winner loved and we still remember the way we loved her love story with Nicholas ! We did NOT forget it!!! Bring us and her and Nick home Josh and Jill! Do they see our fans comments? Thanks Michael F. for helping us get the messages across your awesome!!! Michael is the BEST publicist ever and the girls say they love you man! hey let me know your secrete! LOL… Peace! …:)

    Bill replied

    I feel Sharon has been through so much more than any other Character on the show! How much can one women take! I would hate to see her in a mental ward again!!! I think she needs a true friend like Drucilla was but also a good man a hot her age man. Tucker and Victor were awful for her. We loved the hot romantic passion Sharon and Nick once had, BUT can Nick ever be repaired himself from all he has done to Sharon.I don’t know but in the end it’s Sharon’s time to finally be happy!!! I t could also be Adam he truly loved her and no one is buying he cares for this fake pushed together thrown at us Chelsea thing. It has no chemistry nor future.

    who cares about Nick and Sharon. Romeo and Juliette were teenagers and they both died. Lets move on.

    Saundra replied

    Why is it Sharon’s time to be happy? She did alot of this to herself. Now her behavior is going to be excused with a mental breakdown or a tumor. Either way she is a victim who we have to feel sorry for. Evolved – we will see but as you can see at the center of her healing will be a love story. She needs to get herself together and maker her self happy instead of a man. I am so tired of her. And if Dru comes back I hope she is better then she was when she left. As a AA woman I was offended by the writing or her last s/l and how she was portrayed. Bummer.

    rdp replied

    Why do so many folks like Sharon? The character is boring and pathetic and the acting seems to be like a one-note symphony.

    TORI replied

    Totally agree,Genie Francis and Debbie Morgan are two of the best actress’s in daytime history that can do great things with a scene no matter how bad the writing is. To get rid of such talent and keep deadwood is ridiculous. You could of written better for these two actress’s if you so choose to but instead they think by bringing in all these younger actors and GH rejects is going to get the ratings they’re wrong. The characters are not pointless,they have more talent in their pinkies then most have in their whole bodies on this show and much more entertaining to watch! When Genie leaves,I’m done with this insulting bunch of people running this show!

    Maria Bell only came on the show because the writers strike in 2007 and she stayed and wormed her way in and destroyed the characters we knew and loved and nothing went any place nor made sense anymore! No romance with anyone now. We do not have a super couple like the Bill bell day’s of Sharon and Nick and Drucilla and Neil

    Carly replied

    I agree that Abby was a core character and brought a softer side to Victor ….. and Heather is core to Paul’s family especially after losing his son and sister? Abbey was also related to Jack, Kyle and Billy, so that made her integral to the whole show. This is really sad. I can see that the other 2 characters aren’t part of the core history , but NOT Abbey???? I don’t get it?

    I am really getting a little sick and tired of Sharon …She was at that stupid barn with a Vet for forever and ever…. supposedly cheated on Adam who she loved so much ??? Now this ….. She was so happy to get Faith back??? Ya right? I am tired of seeing her stupid character take away screen time from the other actors…

    BW replied

    I agree with Carly. I am sooooooooo over Sharon. Her character has been so weak for so long, I don’t think giving her a backbone now is going to be believable. They tried to do that when they had her take over Newman , but it just wasn’t believable so they made her crazy. Neil and Leslie suck. BRING BACK DRUCILLA!!! BRING BACK CHEMISTRY!!!

    Nikki replied

    I absolutely agree! I was happy to see Genevive and Harmony go because they were pointless characters to begin with, but Marcy Rylan who is so talented and plays a character connected to three (well, two, I guess. Years later and I still can’t accept the fact the Carltons are gone. lol) prominant families in Genoa City? That made no sense to me.

So wrong! Why would anyone like her she has no chemistry with Adam it seems dull and fake

    Kelly replied

    This cut bothers me the most because of the stance they are taking about the cuts. They said about “core” characters and Abby was a core character in my book. I love her snark and I was really looking forward for what they would do with this Abbott-Newman character. She had the best one liners and I loved her facial expressions. I hope another show grabs her too. There were a whole lot more that should have been cut way before her IMO and now I am really ambivalent about the new crew. Winning me over just got a lot harder.

    candy, I just heard a rumor the other day about this, but it said something like Summer asks Ronan if Phyllis knows he has a “kid.” It didn’t specify age.

    I just hope IF he has a child, that they explore his relationship with his mother, Nina. It is way past time.

    That is complete and utter BS where Marcy Rylan as Abby is concerned. Abby is both a Newman and an Abbott. How does that character NOT have long-reaching history and connection to the heart of the show if she is Victor (freaking) Newman’s daughter??!!

    Mark my words, they will bring in some Hollywood Heights or Friend of Jill to replace her down the road. I can agree with the other firings (except Jennifer Landon – they didn’t give her a chance), but Marcy Rylan was totally unjustified. :-(

    If they didn’t SORAS Abby to the point of being a young adult and an OBNOXIOUS young adult at that, I would say keep her – however, that whole “Naked Heiress” crap really made me dislike the SORAS’ed Abby from Day One.

    Mary SF replied

    I agree, I never liked the character Abby but I give props to MR for doing her best with the role. Case in point, during the recent “death” of Victor she was the only cast member I actually believed was grieving. The rest of them were phoning it in. I don’t blame them considering the number of times Victor has died on this show it would be hard for any of them to work up any real emotion, or think up a new way to play it. But I believe Abby was geniunely upset so kudos to MR for pulling it off with a straight face. I am sure a talent like that will find work more suited to her range.

    Christine replied

    Bart it is just a shame that they never gave Marcy Rylan a good story – so much potential, so much torment – losing Brad and Colleen; being a Newman and an Abbott; all the love interests; her philanthropy with Katherine. All wasted.

    I don’t care what some of the naysayers said about Marcy being too old. Who cares?! She was a great actress and did her best with the CRAP she was given. I will miss seeing her face on my screen as Marcy is such a wonderful person in real life.

    I would think Chloe was more dead weight and not connected than Abby. And I am pretty sure that Elizabeth Hendrickson commands a nice salary too. I wish Marcy well. With the acting lessons that she is taking, I hope she gets a primetime gig one of these days or a breakout movie role. :-)

    She does that and my soap opera watching days are over just like that. That’s the kind of crap that happens IRL plus someone predicted she would be on the chopping block because JFP does not like Rylan’s “type”. Sure enough all were women and all were not JFP’s type. Funny how the people that have followed JFP knew instinctively WHO would be the first to get their ass kicked to the curb.

    Steve kent did the firing because MAB hired to many people for a lot of money and like the rosery beads the stories went no place Phyllis still isn’t in jail

    dg replied

    Well Jill has already hired a Hollywood Heights actress to play Summer and an HH actor to play Noah so her nepotism has already begun. Unfortunately I think the “adult” Abby was pretty much wasted. Since she was aged all Abby has done is strut around half naked and pretend to be a reality star. She was never given a decent romance or a story line with any substance. So I think she never got the chance to prove herself.

    Trust me she will be recast how does she not fit it and we still have Chloe, Chelsea & Eden. If it was salary dump those three you can only do so much with the material you are given. JG was rooted out so he has major heartburn towards Maria Bell a lot of the choices I agreed with, everyone was shocked that MR got axed they really like her castmates etc.

    I will trust the decisions they make initially, but if JFP starts her crap of firing good to bring in her friends I will tune out on principle. MAB hired alot of actors when other shows were cancelled at the expense of our current characters. I believe the actors cut are very talented but Y&R is not GL, AMC, ATWT. If she was going to bring in Great talent, then her obligation was to write for them and she DID NOT! Time will tell, JG knows the shows history and I trust him to repair what MAB attempted to destroy. JFP needs to executive produce and let JG write. The recast Summer Newman is amazing as well as new Noah. Everyone deserves an opportunity to prove themselves.

    I forgot to say that in my rant below. This show really needs Victoria Rowell by now. Hopefully she can get along with JFP and CBS and Sony respect her work. If she were rehired as Druscilla we would see Neil a lot more. I think Maria liked her because Victoria was reportedly really close with Bill Bell Sr.
    And also Im sure Sonya would cut some more dead weight to give her a good salary. Maybe we can get rid of Daisy and Eden and trade them for Dru. Wouldnt that be grand! Lol.

    Christine replied

    kay/kay, that sounds like shades of Gone with the Wind, especially since Sharon was picking out new curtains. Maybe she will have a dress made out of them.

    Well this show has almost hit rock bottom so it will either get better or tank altogether. I’m hoping Josh can pull it off, get things back on track, restore the reputation of this once great soap. But in the meanwhile I will have to watch another funeral for Victor, who really isn’t dead, and zzzz, sorry I fell a sleep just thinking about it.

    Lol! I agree. But the bright side is that YR is still firmly in the number one spot in the ratings and no other show is even close to them. I hope that Josh has some good ideas and he doesnt listen to stupid Jill Phelps. She is the queen to tanking soaps. Its good that she’s not in complete control. Sony and CBS are supervising everything both she and Josh do. They have the final say. So let’s hope for the best.

    Victor got thrown off the horse and lost his memory? BTW that whole Sharon and Victor marriage made my skin crawl ..It was like watching your own family having incest…. After 20 years, that made me stop watching the show cause I couldn’t handle it…. Her character has become so creepy …. Sick…. Victor only married her cause Nikki married Jack……. GO Victor!!!!!

    My main concern is Lauren and Michael and their great love story. MAB did little or nothing with them and they have so much chemistry and are the perfect couple in every way..This love story has been and inspiration and the best written on TV..All I ask of Josh is that he give them a fair chance as it seems MAB gave everyone else a chance but Likey (Lauren and Michael Baldwin) with Christian LeBlanc and Tracey Bregman he has a 3 time Emmy winner and a core character and Tracey Bregman a 1 time Emmy winner and a core character..Do something with them Josh..I know you can do it..as for Sharon had enough of her under MAB and same for Phyllis move on up to other characters.

    The verdict will still be out on JG for me. The previous writers hurt a lot of characters this year. And kept Avery and brought back Ronan for destructing. Not cool for me and several other fans I tweet with. Just be balanced. I looked at some of the old Y^R by JG and I saw balance. Let’s hope it we see it.

    Im not certain I trust this new writer. He wanted more cuts to the cast and I fear he will be hard on favorites who are not long time Y&R cast members. Frankly, Im not all that thrilled the Braeden is back yet again for the Newman hour is predictable, redundant and tiresome. We needed the development of the rest of the cast. The Chancellor family needed more bonding with Tucker at the helm. There needs to be new genuine competition in town not just a punching bag for Braeden to pretend he is the ultimate of gods. That is getting to be a rather contemptible rerun. And boy does this program need genuine romance and not just Nick remarrying for the 1000th time.

    I’m really excited for these new possibilities. While I do not agree with 100% of the decisions (Marcy Rylan and Kevin Schmidt’s firings), I hated Maria Arena Bell’s tenure so much that anything NOT involving her excites me. I’m glad they are going to try and redeem Sharon, I think this mental breakdown will provide Sharon Case with some much needed meaty material. I’m curious as to who the lovestory will be with. I hope it’s not Adam, simply because I love Adam and Chelsea and hope the writers give Chadam some material, but again, I’ll give anything a shot at this point. Speaking of Adam, Michael Muhney has been very supportive of the first few scripts so that gives me some hope because he’s typically outspoken and critical (in a good way!)

    He sounds like he has good ideas, but that’s just talk. I like the idea of sending Sharon over the edge. The show does need to return back to the roots that made it strong. First of all lets hope the Victor/Nikki marriage go round ends for good this time.
    Id be up for seeing Phyllis sent up the river for a bit, just not for good. A Phyllis, Nick, Sharon triangle round 2 might be good as Nick is forced to rescue Sharon. But Id rather Phyllis win in the end. I say a big fat no to Adam/Sharon part 2. Despite the actor’s chemistry that story is just not justifiable considering the past. Its just too much. In the end a new love interest should be written for Sharon.
    While the firing ax is being swung I’m sure most fans would like it to swing Daisy’s way. Yvonne Zima is a very bland, uninspiring actress and the character is just not needed anymore. Also please no more Patty, that dead horse needs to be shot and sent to the glue factory.
    As far as Eric Braeden goes, Victor Newman had better stay off the backburner. Without him this show will definitely tank. Love him or hate him Victor needs to remain a vital part of the YR main story line. Eric Braeden is far too great of an actor to be relegated to a mere supporting player. He doesnt have to eat the entire show, but he should always have a strong front burner story. Let’s just stop him from chasing after women half his age.
    Swing the firing ax again and let’s cut Jessica Heap as Eden. She has no chemistry with anyone and the character is completely under developed. That Kyle Eden “hookup” is very sleep inducing. Fire Jeff Branson too. Ronin isnt necessary to the canvas and Jeff Branson is not a great actor.
    Also if Sony is so interested in cutting the budget, put Gregg Rikart ( Kevin) and Liz Hendrickson ( Chloe) on reoccuring status.
    And for crying out loud give Christoff St. John ( Neil) a freakin’ story line! It’s ridiculous how racist this show appears because we see Neil every black history month, lol. I fear that since Debbie Morgan was let go we’ll see Neil even less. This isnt the freakin 1950s. Give Neil is own company and make him a major power player in the GC corporate scene. Why not put him in the music biz with Devon and have them both fall for a beautiful breakout star . Lord knows Bryton Peyton ( Devon) has also been extremely marginalized and neglected on this show.
    Do not fire Stephen Nichols. He is excellent as Tucker and he makes a great corporate mogul and rival for both Victor and Jack. He is vital to the GC corporate scene. He just needs a suitable love interest since Eileen Davidson was written off. Why not give Victor a long lost sibling, who ends up falling in love with Tucker and scheming to take his empire?

    This is just a hunch but I think you will see a new face on this show for Sharon I for one think she needs to get out of the Newmans zone. In the 1980′s when Ashley had her first breakdown courtesy of Victor & Nikki she fell in love with her shrink. I think you will see a new guy being cast for Sharon this is JFP she brings her buddies over but I am on board for a new face for her.

    I too think Victor needs to stay, but the character needs to grow, all of them do. The writing has been too plot driven and the characters have become one dimensional. I don’t really care what happens as long as we get back to real storytelling, where characters have depth, so their actions would make sense. I want conflict that is rooted in reality, not a shooting, or murder,or fake marrigage or death thrown it in November, Feb or May during sweeps week. There must be stories that we can relate to; that are entertaining because this show would not lasted all these years without it. Get back to basics. Actors come and go, but good storytelling will keep me tuning in.

    I think Genie Francis is getting a raw deal. JFP just does not like her and that is the sole reason she was fired. Genevieve has storyline potential…and she is one of the few women in the cast in her age bracket.

    I really like Marcy Rylan and think firing her was another JFP crap move. How can a character with ties to the two major families NOT have storyline? Seriously?

    Shocked at Jennifer Landon’s firing. Poor Paul….he just cannot hang on to his kids.

    Curious as to what this guy can do down the road in writing better story without cramming a slew of new characters on the screen. They should have dumped Summer & Fenn. Though, I am intrigued by the new Noah…I was never impressed with Schmidt in the role.

    I really, really hope Daisy will be a goner for good….or at least a recast if they feel the urgency to keep the character.

    I think bringing Adam back to the dark side is a mistake. The character should not be either black or white. Jack, Victor, even Billy have their moral & ethical swings so there is no reason Adam cannot too.

There is just so much ‘yapping’ by silly women/men that viewers can tolerate!! Sony, ya listening??? Now…Abby should definitely STAY! She brings such a wittiness, sarcastic, adorable presence to the show!! NO ONE can replace her. She’s PERFECT for the role!! So, please don’t fire her & then bring in someone else…not gonna bode well with fans!! I just wish the storyline with Sharon would have used to opportunity to show that women CAN be powerful & intelligent & run large corporations these days (Katherine Chancellor did waaay back when)! I liked her taking the reins…I just wanted her to ‘see through’ Tucker’s madness & show her keen awareness of his deceitfulness! But it went south on that story!! What a missed opportunity. I love Murphy & Katherine!! Such a sweet love story that was. Keep him around from time to time. So HAPPY Harmony is GONE…you could send Neil with her! He lost all credibility/dignity/integrity that I will NEVER accept from him after he cheated on Sophia! I’d love to have seen Sarge & Sophia remain & a great love story develop there…but I FAST FORWARD every scene that has Neil or Harmony in it! I hope Cricket kicks Phyllis’ butt FINALLY!!! The way Phyllis hunches over & distorts her body when she’s trying to convince someone of her lies makes me barf. Her acting has gone south too. You gotta keep the CORE of Y&R…the Newmans/Abbotts/Chancelors…. I like the young characters coming in – gotta have them grow up sometime…but I LOVE the older characters who’ve been there forever…Victor, Nikki, Jack, Katherine AND Nick, Victoria, Billy, Michael, Lauren, Kevin, Daniel and the BEST actor on the show right now: ADAM! He’s super! I’m hoping he & Chelsea will bring back some integrity/dignity the show has LOST over the past few years! Also….if you could….bring back JOHN ABBOTT!!!

I hope they bring back integrity & dignity to the show like John Abbott did, by raising children together, being a decent family with LOVE & not drama.

    I didn’t have the sound on so I only saw the video. I love that Marco Dapper (Carmine) is still around. They need to give him more to do.

    I think the new team has done the best with the character of Avery – giving her an apartment, finally. Plus she looks so girl-next-door in her flannel shirt and jeans. I like her with Nick this time around.

    I don’t like that Billy and Victor are always at odds. Call me hopeless, but I would really like for Billy and Victor to accept each other and get along. I would also like Victor and Adam and Nick to all get along, but I doubt that will ever happen.

    Is it just me but do you think Y&R is missing something now, visually. I don’t see any of the style, class and flair it had for many years. The camera work is just plain boring, the sets are very limited and the writing and direction are unexciting. Maybe it has to do with budget cutbacks. I am starting to think this show is being sent down the river without a raft.

    It’s hard to say. I see GOOD and BAD. I like Avery’s place with the orange and the green and I can see Jill’s touches here and there. I am undecided about the new place. I liked Gloria having Gloworm. It was nice for her to be appreciated.

    I really don’t like what they have done with Kevin at all! If any character needs a change in personality, it is him.

    I think the only time Sharon Case looks good onscreen these days is when she has money, like Victor’s, or on a rare occasion. They always do her hair parted down the middle and there are all these flyaways. It is not attractive. Plus the stringy mess shows lines on her face and neck.

    The pill using with Jack is predictable and boring.

    I miss the serious music they used to play. Now most scenes it is upbeat and too loud over the dialogue.

    I hate that there is always turmoil between Billy and Victoria and Victor, not to mention Adam.

    I don’t know, Mark. The jury is still out in my case, but it is hard to say whether this one will survive or not. Even though GH is doing very well, there are still rumors it will be canceled and there are no guarantees past their anniversary. Same with Y&R. I am afraid we will lose all our soaps in 5 years or less. :-(
