I would guess Y&R's Black audience first came on board in the mid-1980s during the Jazz/Tyrone/Amy/Nathan era, then the Black audience was really cemented when Shemar arrived. 

 

Bill Bell used elements of the Jackson brothers 10 years later with the Winters brothers. Jazz and Tyrone's first scenes together are quite similar to Malcolm and Neil's first scenes together.

Actually didn't they start adding in black characters around late 82 because i read how Amy Lewis and i forgot her mom's name and the father frank Lewis were on before the year was out and I'm not sure but i assume there were scenes with amy and her parents until they faded out and then didn't those other brother come on board? 

 

Cause Amy and i guess you can say aunt mamie were the first 1982 then gradually more came and gone until the 90's era.

Haha I never took those SOD awards ever seriously, especially since there was always excessive ballot stuffing from Days and GH fans at the mag itself. Didn’t they have some silly controversy over actual reader ballots getting thrown away? 

It was ridiculous. Might as well have called it the Days awards. The soap opera digest awards lost all credibility very quickly.

Just realized this press release is wrong - Shemar's first day is actually the day before, May 5, when Dru first calls him.

Here, at 32:00 https://youtu.be/b8C0V3_WBNM

 

Beautiful man and instant charm on screen. It's not easy to act by yourself essentially and he pulled it off in his first scene. He wasn't nearly as green as a lot of the clunkers we have today, like that woman who plays Lola. A black hole of charisma.

Actually they got entire date this originally aired wrong. Today’s episode actually aired May 9th. Malcolm first appeared on May 5th when Dru called him up to come to Genoa City. Malcolm & Neil’s office scenes aired at the end of the May 6 They were then replayed at the beginning of the May 9 episode that we saw today. 🙂

I saw a clip the other day of Amy with Tracey and Lauren. So I guess Amy was apart of the teen scene at first?

I remember they had basically a whole soft-porn episode with Malcolm shirtless and eye-fücking the camera at a Jabot photo shoot. They knew what they had with him. But of course if he were white, he have banged half of Genoa City (a la Aidan on AMC) in incredibly risqué love scenes. And while I know daytime loves rape, him taking advantage of Dru when she was on cold meds was so out of the blue and disrespectful. And not really explored character-wise.

Sounds like you may be remembering 4/17/98 :) https://www.soapcentral.com/yr/recaps/1998/980413.php

"Outside the office, Malcolm saw his reflection and began to imagine himself posing in front of the camera. Malcolm imagined several poses in different outfits, and he wore less for each subsequent picture. When he returned to reality, he saw Jill standing in her doorway, smiling at him."

Yeah, that’s it! And makes it even crazier that Malcolm and Jill never had sex. Yet they brought on Sean Bridges...

Shemar was nominated for Hottest Male Star at the 1998 and 1999 SOD awards and lost to Ingo Rademacher in 1998 and Steve Burton in 1999. WTF? No way were those guys hotter than Shemar.

 

Wow, yea they dont even come close to Shemar. Especially Steve Burton who is ugly IMO

That would awesome. Haha I do hope the also have some surprise god send up their sleeve like either early Victor or Vanessa again. That 1981 episode was the first rerun people on Y&R’s official Facebook page people actually were interested in and still beat out a brand new Days episode lol.
