So you met Tom? And Martha Byrne? How random LOL

 

Yes, I know writers are canned when ratings fall. Y&R's ratings are NOT "in the basement" no matter how often you say the sky is falling. It's still the #1 show BY FAR.

 

You won't watch from now on? Then at least we won't have to read negative rants from someone who doesn't even watch the show. Your sister doesn't watch regularly either. Huh. That makes two of you.

 

If you read this board regularly, you should realize WE KNOW ratings have dropped. You don't have any special insight because you know that. 

 

A lot of us complain about 1 or 100 things on Y&R. We're still watching, however, and just about all of us will be watching next week. You see, there's plenty that we still like.

+1. It's easy to complain, and in today's climate everything tends to be skewing towards the negative. I've learned to take a step back (

It is.  In fact, as far as daytime soaps (both past and present) go, I'd venture to say Y&R is the nastiest.  From the beginning, it seems, egos have been that particular show's biggest BTS problem.  

 

Indeed, Y&R has always had behind the scenes problems, they aren't new stories and there's lots of them. 

 

This is just so pathetically sad for Y&R. Mal is doomed, nobody can handle being Headwriter and the EP in charge of production at the same time - Bill Bell didn't do it and neither should Mal Young. Kay Alden should still be there to guide, if not steer, the ship. If she left of her own accord, then fine...but between the story of Sally firing her or CBS firing them both it doesn't sound like it happened that way. The retirement language is just as it was for that hack at GH - an opportunity to save face, but in classic Y&R fashion it's been handled very poorly. You have to give it to ABC: their public relations game has always been good.

 

Interesting to see several actors jump aboard with their mouths firmly implanted on his ass. It will be interesting to see where their stories might go.

 

I'm just thankful Sally and Kay provided some actual closure to the Kay/Jill feud. Those scenes a few months ago where Jill read Kay's final letter to her and gave her Phillip's ring were excellent and so desperately needed to provide closure. I'm thankful we got that and I'm glad it was Kay Alden who got to do it. I wonder what Jess Walton makes of all this - she has the advantage (and disadvantage) of being recurring, so she can return or not. 

 

The interesting thing will be whether Sally's husband, Tony Morina, stays on as a producer.

1) Stop highlighting and copy/pasting tweets. If you're going to do it, at least do it properly in a way that won't look trash

 

2) Yeah, I'm sure the actors would shittalk the new HW. Because that leads to more story, right?

It seems the cast adores Mal.  Nobody has said one thing about missing Sally. 

 

The cast -- ANY cast -- adores WHOEVER is in charge. They'd be stupid NOT to adore him, although the Twitter adoration is eye-rolling.

 

Why would actors go public about missing Sally? Do you realize how MORONIC that would be? No cast member is going to shoot himself in the foot.

Why is Gina sidelined when she won an emmy which was all Pratt material? Sally gave her zero to do. It seems the cast adores Mal.  Nobody has said one thing about missing Sally. 


Lord Have MERCY I'm tired of you always doing this. do you do this just to troll or do you really believe the drivel you post each and every single darn day and night? If I'm not hearing about ratings with you, you're kissing Pratt's tail, JP's tail, GT's tail, events are what people want.....the show has been crap since 5 minutes after CP and JFP were FIRED....Blah Blah Damn Blah. Give it a rest....

DAMN!

Yes.  And it's not random.  Tom and Martha were friendly/friends for awhile.  I met them about 5 to 7 years ago.  So it's not that random.  Martha either wrote a few episodes or directed at B&B around then.  But I won't bore you with my negativity.  I really really promise.  Best of luck to you.  I think about it, and when I look back at old clips I think I'm going to be disappointed because maybe Daytime was always this bad.  But when I look at old clips on YouTube I see that it really was good years ago.  And it's not now.  So it's time to go, and that's why talent and actors, actresses, writers, producers, directors - they leave.  I see it's time to go, and as sad as it is for me to say - I said goodbye years ago to soaps when the greats - Guiding Light, World Turns, Another World, and on occasion I would watch All My Children.  It really was over then, but the hanging on, I've really just done out of missing the genre as I knew it.  I keep expecting some old clips I see to age really badly, but they don't.  I honestly think, if they're all cancelled - wait about 5 years and then re-introduce a soap, and the kiddies will think they're seeing something brand new and never seen before.  I truly apologize if I seem really negative and adversarial, but it's just how I feel.  Much luck and love.
