I'd always been of the understanding that Esser went to B&B during LML's run because her contract allowed her to go there in place of Y&R...which makes me wonder exactly who her contract is with - Sony or Bell Dramatic Serial Co?
Let's all hope that Kay and Sally have this music playing when they fire all of the useless ABC writers who've polluted the show:
I want to see all the writers fired with the exception of Janice Ferri Esser and Natalie Minardi Slater, who are both Bell era survivors (it still boggles my mind how they were able to survive every subsequent regime change). SSM and KA need to start fresh with a team who will execute their vision.
Totally agree. LML gutted the show. Absolutely destroyed it. And when she came it was still the best show in daytime by a hundred miles. She could have thoughtfully updated it...but no...she ate it alive, without any plan for the future.
Neither. The most destructive was that hack bitch from the depths of hell LML. She is the one who set the tone for every subsequent regime.
Hell, in her first few months MAB did a lot to repair the show, only to devolve into her own signature mess. I actually look at JFP's reign as the blandest in Y&R's history. Certainly, she damaged it, but not irrevocably so.
