I am soooo excited about this. I saw some of William Russ as the character and he just didn't do anything for me as the character. I couldn't stop thinking that he was Mr. Matthews of Boy Meets World. I totally love SN and I think he's going to rock in this role.

There's a reason why Y&R is No. 1, and this is it. What a casting coup!

I enjoy Lori Loughlin a lot on 90210 these days and always loved her on Edge of Night with Jody and Preacher.

I guess I'm the only one who liked Walton & Russ together.... :laugh:
I liked them, too.

This'll be my first time seeing SN without the eye patch.

This is who they wanted for the role originally. I wonder why Stephen finally gave in?
Did they really? It seems that he did try out for it but didn't get it? I wonder why if they wanted Stephen all along why he wouldn't take it? Maybe the interview coming up will let us know.

I think this is a good casting scoop for Y&R. It will be interesting to see him in the roll and what he can do with it. I hope it is different than Steve from Days which it sounds like it will be. Maybe he will make the character as a Stefan/Steve hybrid.

Excellent news!! Stephen Nichols adds a spark to any role he is given. He is a true actor. I think he is PERFECT for this role in many ways! He will be super hot in this role and add a wonderful dynamic to the show! As a former Days fan, this just confirms all the reasons why Y&R has generated my attention lately! I am so excited to become a daily viewer. Y&R is where it is at!!!

Braeden should feel threatened by the hiring of Nichols who was a super star while he was on Days. The show could be viewing Nichols as someone who could pull the rug out from under Braeden. When EB was throwing his hissy fits about coming back to Y&R Nichols was one of the names mentioned the show was considering bringing on. So maybe despite re-signing EB the show is still planning have another male character take over from Victor.

As much as I would like to see the rug pulled out from under Eric/Victor, I'm not sure if Stephen Nichols will be popular enough with Y&R fans to do that. Hell, he wasn't even popular enough with Days fans and that's where he was considered a superstar, LoL.

He's a great actor, but to many Y&R fans he's going to be "just another new face."

Nah, they learned their lesson. When Victor and Nikki left the ratings immediately fell in the toilet. The show is not the same without those two. I don't think there's any taking over for Victor. I just hope when V&N return they get true frontburner stories instead of playing second fiddle to other people as they did all year.

The ratings did not fall when Braeden waddled off. Y&R's ratings were at around 3.5 for the last few months. They went up or down a point or so but they averaged out at 3.5. Which is what they have basically remained during EB's absence. I am a huge MTS fan and do think she unlike EB is an asset to the show. But even so MTS' absence did not negatively impact the ratings. And neither did EB's despite what he claimed in his hissy fit interviews.

The show's ratings reached 4.1 last year at the height of the Katherine story line.

Yeah, but that was back in the 80's. When they came back to the show a few years ago, they weren't nearly as popular with fans.

Hogan Sheffer must be really pleased - one could tell SN/Steve was one of his favourites at DAYS. I'd expect him frontburner a lot at Y&R until EB gets jealous.
