Maybe this is in another thread and I haven't read it yet, but Eric Braden was on "The Talk" yesterday (Friday) and he was telling that you had to have good writers and the show did so I don't know if this is before or after MAB announced her leaving the show. He didn't talk too much about the show or the character TGVN he seem to talk about his two granddaughters and showed pictures of them I really don't know why he was on as he wasn't really promoting Y&R or anything else.
He was on because they like him, he's been on a few times, and just being there he was promoting the show.
Maybe he didn't say much about the show because the :shithitfan: and he wasn't at liberty to divulge. The timing was pretty close, just my guess.

That was a rerum that was done probably in June I think. Nelson branco kept mentioning it on his twitter but it was a rerun, stuff might have been happening then but I don't know if any of the "characters" knew about it then. MAB has to play the stupid card now, she's knows she destroyed the show ,the stories and characters show it.
I missed it, I had to leave the house, and I thought it was a rerun too, but then Julie Chen said something that was up to date, and I thought damn, it's a new appearance.
Now I'm pissed I missed it. lol

All of this VR talk has got me looking at her clips on YT. I hope JFP brings her back. She is the shot in the arm this show needs.

I would be perfectly fine with Eric Braeden being let go. Victor needs a good rest from the show. Bring him back a year or two later. I'd love to see Nikki become a ruthless business woman.

I'd also love to see Dru back.

like it or not Victor newman is a big part of the show, nicki wouldn't have a story, jack wouldn't have a story, vicki and nick wouldn't have stories. There would be really no big business stories. Im not saying Im a big fan of his character but somebody says young and the restless, what character do you think? Victor.

I still can't believe MAB acts like she had no clue she might have been canned. Hell, I had suspicion. If MAB would like to know why, then I have one word for her.....

Daisy.

She kept bringing that thing back.

I dont mind daisy in some areas, she gave phyllis a dose of her own medicine and clearly phyllis couldn't handle it.

^Yvonne Zima's acting was awful! Plus, you knew Phyllis was going to win.

I hope the new writers try to add some balance and not try to make one character "the star". However, I would not mind seeing Phyllis crapped on for a year, LOL.

I think that was the only time people rooted for Daisy was because their Phyllis hate was stronger than their Daisy hate. People wanted to see MAB's pet take a fall.

I am surprised MAB had her girl lose blueberry. I thought for sure she'd let Phyllis have the baby considering she gets everything else she wants.

That was another thing that annoyed me about MAB. If the viewers did not like a storyline, Maria the Moron doubled down. In fact, it came across that she was trying to tick the audience off. Hello? I can understand the notion of not changing on every whim because someone complains. However, she never changed her storylines and they NEVER paid off. As a HW, MAB was a salesperson and no one was buying that crap she was selling. Your audiences's opinions matter.

On OLTL there was this porn storyline EVERYONE hated, but at least the storyline paid off in the in.

She was trying to tick the audience off. You can't tell me she wasn't.

Shictor & Daisy are prime examples. She knew the audience hated both and it was made clear. MAB turned around and shoved them down the viewers throats.

You didn't like Sharon/Adam together...she gave us Sharon/Victor.

Didn't like chipmunk story. Here goes Skye falling into a volcano.





None of her murder mysteries were successful but she kept on pushing them.

that also made no sense to me, viewers have been complaining for months and it seemed the more angry viewers got the more she did it, thats not how you keep viewers, they don't like something they will let you know. Heck the ratings proved that. That woman just made no sense at all. oh well she's gone now. Hopefully things will get better before the show gets cancelled, this may be their last chance.

I haven't watched TYATR on a regular basis since 1982. What I can say is that you might as well start to say your goodbyes to this soap opera--Jill Farren Phelps will be the total death of this show. Her past record speaks for itself.
