I honestly feel the direction the current writers are taking the show is not what the long time viewers want. I have been watching since 1986. My kids grew up watching the show and now watch too. They do not care for the direction the show is going too.

if this has been posted please delete. from last evening.

 

Wasn't Davidson doing the most to sing MY's praises when Mal took over the head-writing position?  My how times have changed.

Doug’s comments are so transparently self-serving. He’s retweeting all the people who want to see more Paul.

Please don't let this be a setup for a Phyllis/Billy/Summer triangle. 

 

Wait for it...

Doug is only upset because Doug doesn't have airtime. 

 

He did the same with Sally right before her departure.  Makes me think Mal is on the way out.

Not sure what's more surprising this week, DD's tweet or Michael Muhney adding his two cents to 'protect' Hunter King.

Always interesting to see when soap fans and/or bloggers promote #MeToo but still try to do a little softshoe over whether Michael Muhney (or Robert Kelker-Kelly) should ever be hired again.

So I guess Mal is no longer in Doug's good graces. 


One thing I don;t like....actors getting on Twitter and talking garbage. if he think he didn't get airtime before...

I know actors have a relationship with customers that some schmo toiling away at an office job doesn’t have, but I don’t know many industries where trashing your superiors in a public forum does you any favors. Doug isn’t Susan Lucci or Erika Slezak in terms of 2018 Y&R.

 

That is, unless he knows Mal is halfway out the door, which wouldn’t be surprising given Y&R’s recent run of record ratings lows.

Yeah, Y&R had like three days of sub-3.0 ratings in the most recent report, and the demos are just as abysmal. Granted, the other shows aren’t doing much better, save for DAYS with modest gains, but I can imagine the highers-up being alarmed.

I feel like any time a new creative comes in Doug Davidson is out front with a bucket offering to wash their car.

My fear is that we’ll return to the depths of Pratt/MAB shock and awe. Some would argue that Mal has already gone there, but nothing he’s done has been egregious as Adam killing a child or Neil torturing Hilary or the crazy run of psychotic doppelgängers IMO. Not even the JT stuff, which was pretty poorly handled.
