She always has that much airtime when something bigger is going on between Jill and Kay. Aside from that, she doesn't get much airtime.

It really was a wonderful month. ;)

The entire detailed recap from today's Canadian show was posted on the net.

I disagree.

Davidson should be high up, but not number one.

Bergman and Case were on WAY too much.

LeBlanc's lack of screen time is criminal.

Bloom and Hendrickson appearing more than Khalil and Rikaart is ludicrous.

And don't even get me started on Sursok not appearing at all.

It might be the RIGHT people for you, but not for everyone. I am glad they are using the vets more but it is pitiful how much focus has been on the Newmans and the quad once again this year. Whatever one may think of actors like Christian Le Blanc or Tracey Bregman, they are veterans and fan favorites and deserve better.

It is ridiculous that for the year Christian Le Blanc has been on 60 fewer shows than the characters of Nikki, Victor, and Nick and Tracey Bregman has been on 80 eps less.

I get that they aren't part of this sweeps and I don't have a problem with that since the focus was on Katherine, the quad, and the Newmans. But for the year, that is a very poor use of talented emmy winners. Their episode numbers are way down from the past few years and have been falling every year since LML took over. Did they suddenly become useless hacks or are the writers not using all of their talent?

I agree good for Jess, Jeanne, and Kate because they deserve the story and screentime, but it was not perfect or flawless. I don't want the same characters dominating all year long. This is an ensemble and always worked best as one.

It is time for the Newmans to not be center stage twelve months a year and this is coming from someone who loved the Newmans but it is overkill. I need a break from them and the quad. Let some of them be on twice a week once there current storylines wrap and lets' focus on some other characters who are also fan favorites.

Did I say I was speaking for everyone? :rolleyes:

The Newman's have hardly ever be backburned, which I guess has a lot to do with Eric Braeden, but I don't forsee them ever being put them on the backburner for an extended period of time.

Was there outrage when Michael was nothing but a supporting player up until 2004-5 or so? Honestly, that's the only time he's ever been a lead actor on the show. While I do agree he has talent, Michael's backstory has been botched by three different writing regimes. I no longer care to see him develope a "relationship" with his father, Gloria is beyond annoying and needs to written out, and don't get me started on Eden.

What more are they going to do with him? So much of what they've given the Michael character hasn't clicked, and adding Gloria into the mix doesn't help.

Since Tracey came back, outside of the relationship with Michael and the whole Sheila fiasco, she's never been an outright leading actress on the show either. Michael has traditionally been a supporting player too, so that's not new to me.

Obviously, Christian and Tracey aren't the only ones. Jess Walton can't get a stroryline for herself unless it involves Katherine. Jill was a leading character from almost the beginning of the show, I'd say that's a bigger shame. Kristoff St. John, who is also an Emmy winner and has been there for the same amount of time as LeBlanc pulled in the same amount of episodes this month than LeBlanc and less episodes the year overall than LeBlanc, again another shame. He's also given storylines that don't quite "click" and are featured once or twice a week.

The whole show doesn't revolve around one character. Yes, some characters are on more than others, but as the epsiode counts show, the the top 10 players in November were close in the amount of episode counts they had.

We all want our "favourites" on, but for me, as long as stories on the frontburner are satisfying me for the most part, I have nothing to complain about. Some stories will always be better than others, but I did enjoy a lot of what I PERSONALLY saw in November.

For Michael, I've always said the worst thing they ever did was give Michael a backstory, when he survived for years on the show WITHOUT one. The same backstory would lead to Gloria and Kevin overpowering Michael's presence on the show.

And I hope we never get a backstory for Phyllis either. I don't care to see her family, she's on enough, and I don't need a relative of her's driving storyline after storyline.

I couldn't agree more.

Since someone asked about Esther's airtime: I would go that far that it was her busiest month ever. She was basically in any episode with Jeanne Cooper and 12 episodes is a lot on Y&R where the is cast balance. I checked my episode count archive and the highest number of appaerabce I ever had for Kate Linder was 8 in a single month. Maybe she was on more during the original Marge/Kay story with Norm but I couldn't see any other period in 28 years of her Y&R stint where she was feautured more. And before I forget, Kate Linder was great last month!
