Why do I have a strong feeling that this is gonna be like Callie 2.0. (but with Nate or Devon) and go nowhere at the end of the day?

Well they just had Simone earlier this year and that went nowhere.

I've stopped watching for over 2 years, so I didn't know about this. TBH, I only pop up in soap threads b/c I love you all. I've given up on daytime TV altogether with the exception of The View.

I'm and on and off watcher so I caught the tail end of what was apparently a very brief arc with  another AA singer character.

Which annoys me!!! Why do we always have to be tied to the music stories?! Can we aspire for other professions like a doctor? Lawyer? Business exec? Oh yeah. I forgot. Y&R has a knack for scrapping all of those characters. <_<

Well the new character for Nate with be working in the lab. But they've been determined to keep Devon in this musical business crap for years.

True. 

 

But I always thought it was stupid for Y&R to never not expand the hospital staff seeing as medical dramas have always been hot commodities in TV (e.g. Greys, E.R., St. Elsewhere, House...)

CBS has never really had much success with medical dramas, at least since the 1980s.

MASH was a sitcom that was just as much about relationships in the time of war as it was about medicine. I guess they also had Trapper John M.D. (my mother was a fan of that show) and Marcus Welby (way before my time) but those were decades ago.

CBS is not known for their medical dramas and it seems to be the case in daytime too.

Marcus Welby was ABC. CBS also had Chicago Hope that was pretty succesful and Medical Center way back in the 70's.

 

Y&R had doctors (Snapper,Scott, Casey,Olivia ) but never any major hospital drama unless a character was admitted.
