I know just about all of the Evans family, except Terrell Tilford, is recurring (what about Destiny?), so we could always see them again, but according to Jamey Giddens, they're going, minus A Brain is Not a Foot, MD.

U guessed it, I've heard just that unfortunately. :-( Greg will stick around as the "doctor". but buh bye Evans fam too.

I wonder if we're going to get Greg/Layla. I'd rather Layla be with Brody, or with Cris, but then, I guess I should be surprised if she gets anyone.

Does this mean they're writing out the Evans family, or will we just not see them again? Since they're recurring, I don't think there is any need to get rid of them. Just have them show up when needed.

It's a shame Greg is staying, though. Maybe he'll be bumped to recurring and only appear when a doctor is needed.

Y&R already fazing out the black people. Even CKLily isn't getting that much airtime. & I thought viewers that isn't black accepted her more in the role. I wonder if they complaining about her too now.

As soon as Cris dump Layla for HS Jessica. Layla will never be seen again. They won't even give her a good bye storyline like they gave Sara & the Arabic cop, or Adrainne. Christian probably move on to somebody else after he get dump by Remember Jessica.

So basically the Evans family is done and Greg too will be dropped to recurring, only uses as the token black doctor? Wow. This is really bad. Like Y&R bad. OLTL decided to revamp the cast by dumping all of the minorities? That is sick and racist. I feel like the used them to try and get some buzz and not they're getting kicked to the curb. I knew Destiny never had a shot with Matthew once Danielle arrived.

Well you know, Frons doesn't really seem to like fat, old, black, foreign, and gay people.

Hell, I'm not even sure Matthew has a chance. Or this one anyway. Is anyone good enough for the precious miracle child? I won't be shocked if we get a Chris McKenna/Kirk Geiger style dumping.

    • Tubi has some great stuff and I'm currently watching the He-Man She-Ra Christmas Special from 1985 
    • I recently came across the 1997 book Worlds Without End: The Art and History of the Soap Opera. In the book Bill Bell comments on two pivotal events in Y&R history. I hope nobody minds that I quoted his comments in full. On Taking Y&R to One Hour "Once assured that Y&R was a runaway hit, CBS inevitably wanted to talk to me about an hour. I'll spare you the gruesome details, but after months of enormous pressure from the network and the affiliates, I somehow found myself committed to doing the hour show. What ultimately happened is that our ratings went down and it took us three years to become number one again.   How could this have happened? One reason is that when we went to an hour, we had a number of cast defections. The issue of performing in a one-hour show had not been part of their contracts. And some of our leading actors understandably felt that their popularity on Restless would open the door to fame and fortune in nighttime or films. Obviously we had to recast prime characters in our two core families, the Brooks and the Fosters. It was then that I decided if even one more actor from these families decided to leave the show, I'd have to do something radical.   A short time later, Jaime Lyn Bauer, who played Lauralee Brooks and was one of the very few original cast members remaining, came to me and said she was physically exhausted, which she was, and that she wasn't going to renew her contract when it was up in August. This was February.   There was no other answer. I had to replace what had been the core of our show since its inception. Two complete families. About eleven actors in all. But replace them with what?   As I studied the remaining cast, I realized I had two characters - Paul Williams, played by Doug Davidson, and Jack Abbott, played by Terry Lester - both of whom had a relatively insignificant presence on the show. They didn't have families. Hell, they didn't even have bedrooms. But these became the two characters I would build our two new families around. I remember the head of daytime for CBS advising me "with the strongest possible conviction" that I was making a grave mistake by replacing these families. There was a great risk, no question, but my conviction was that it could be even more disastrous if I didn't.   I immediately began establishing new families while interweaving the old. We made this transformation without losing so much as a share point. In fact, our ratings and share points kept building, with our two new families emerging as the dominant characters on the show.   This is where Victor Newman came into the picture."   On Victor Newman "You are not going to believe this, but this character, who today is daytime's number one romantic lead, was to be a short-term noncontract role. It would last between eight to twelve weeks, at which time he was to be shot by his beautiful wife. In short, Victor Newman was in concept a despicable, contemptible, unfaithful wife abuser.   When I saw Eric Braeden's first performance - the voice, the power, the inner strength - I knew immediately that I didn't want to lose this man. He was exactly what the show needed. Not the hateful man we saw on-screen, but the man he could and would become over time.   The first thing was to get Eric under contract, but he didn't want to go under contract. He was very uneasy about television, the daytime serial, the people he worked with, the producers. This was a whole other world for Eric. And Eric is a cautious man.   Over time, Eric became more comfortable with the medium, and more trusting with the producers, and agreed to sign a contract. If memory serves, it was for six months. I immediately changed my story in the hope of salvaging this character.  The rest is history."
    • @JaneAusten the way and in the form most current media exist today is the reason why I have to read multiple sources every week, if I want even half the story.  Some days I can't even stomach much other than to read the headline the the lede. I can remember years ago when I would consume the news like it was my job because to be able to write, I felt like being well read was a must. To some extent, I still feel this way but I am far more circumspect about every single news source- I pretty much treat them all as if tabloid tendencies lurk beneath the surface.    
    • I don't disagree it's a waste of JKJ and honestly all the actors involved, but Phillip has been a villian in the past.  This plan is ludicrous, but it's not like he's been a straight edge good guy all along.  JKJ is playing it like he is a psycho though.
