I think the reason "Young And Restless" is in its current state is because where's the incentive to be better?
Where I live, "Young and Restless" comes on at 11:30 am, then it's followed by "Bold And The Beautiful" at 12:30 pm (same channel), then at 1 pm "Days Of Our Lives" comes on NBC and at 2 pm "General Hospital" comes on ABC.
None of these shows overlap. I think if "General Hospital" or "Days Of Our Lives" came on against "Young And Restless", then they would have a sense of urgency.
I don't know much about "General Hospital", but I do watch "Days Of Our Lives" from time to time and when someone does wrong, they do get punished.
It might one month or one year, but eventually someone gets what's coming to them.
I can watch "Young And Restless" every couple of months, see Victor out and about town, walk up to some random character, point and wag his finger and mumble some sort of threat.
Two things that have always puzzled me about the show.
First of all, didn't Victoria, Abby and Nick once win half a billion dollars each, in some sort of settlement against Victor years ago?
If someone is worth half a billion dollars, why in the world would you stay in Genoa City, Wisconsin?
How about moving to... New York? Paris? London?
How about change your name so you can't be found and move away?
If Victor is such a pain in the butt, take your money and go!
Second, how can Victor be so bulletproof? I don't watch the show religiously, but has he ever dealt with organized crime in any way, shape or form? How can you do all those things over the years and not seriously be touched?
THAT could be the way to get rid of his character once and for all. Have him cross some sort of crime boss etc... they put a contract out on his life, kill him and the rest of cast can breathe easier!
I have watched this show almost since its beginning. It has always been great. But lately, the story lines are not good. They are boring. I see much more sex and also people who are supposed to be intelligent act anything but. I always liked Sharon. Why has she been given such terrible lines and situations? She is beautiful. If you lose her, you are losing an excellent actress. I am sick of Victor always winning. Let the Abbotts win this one and Victor pay for his actions. Neal has also been given lines and situations that do not go along with his character as it has always been.
The writers need to be fired. I am sick of victor never getting caught. The new storyline is stupid,even for a child. You fired the fan grabber Adam,had him replaced, you let Phillis and her sister go, and kept this whinny no acting actress that plays summer. Also the actress playing sage. You traded three for two and got nothing.
Everyone knows people need justice and fairness. The story lines never make Victor responsible for his criminal actions, and there is no justice or fairness for what he does to other people's lives. I'm done.....
What has happened to the Young and The Restless, the show has really taken a bad turn. I have watched for over twenty years and I am not enjoying the stories any longer. I think this soap has run its course. I would hate to see it cancelled because of loss of viewers.
When are any of the writers going to wake up and get rid of is enough. Been watching this show since the beginning and the Victor character has run its course. How many times do we have to listen to his answer to everything "I am doing this for my family" Year after year it is the same have some young actors/actress use them and change something besides the same old breaks the law, Victor gets away with it goes on and on. BORING!!!! Get rid of the am sure he is rich enough and does not need the money.
Been watching Y&R since the beginning and wondering why it is so disjointed now? Why are you getting rid of all the interesting characters? Like Avery, the "real" Phyllis, The previous Adam, is Sharon going? Why don't you get rid of "the Blacks" They are O so boring and always have been. Neil is a terrible actor and Devon is almost as bad. So unbelievable how they lose hearing and get it back; lose eyesight and get it back. Guess that is what the skip button is for. And Stitch---what? So many newer actors are just unconvincing. Don't want to lose Y&R but am disappointed and discouraged.
Can you please speed up this Jack/Marco Sage/Have/Adam storyline. This has gone from ridiculous to extremely boring. It doesn't seem like you have a clue who you want Stitch to be with, Sharon and Dyhlan have absolutely zero chemistry. You all are all over the map and driving those of us who have been life long viewers crazy in the worst way. Please please please end this craziness fast
I don't know why you writers always let Victor get away with everything. Why can't Jack ever win over Victor that's not right. I am so (Tired) of Victor, its just so frustrated to see Victor win all the time it makes me want to stop watching the show because you writers are so into Victors character that it doesn't matter if everyone is getting tired of Victor. Please stop favoring Victor over Jack. Please let Jack get the last word.
DO NOT TAKE THIS PROGRAM OFF. I THINK THE STORY LINES ARE GREAT. I THINK VICTOR AND HIS SELFISH WAYS KEEPS IT INTERESTING. ALSO I LIKE THE WAY IT HITS THING HAPPENING IN REAL LIFE EG RAPE,ALCOHOLISM,DRUG ABUSE ETC. I LOOOOOOVE THE SHOW.
It has finally reached the point that I can expect the worse from the writers of Young and the clueless. I have for many years enjoyed this show. It has lost all reason and has gone so far from good writing it is a great example of how to destroy a show. Example: What is the deal w/Ashleys brain thing. One day you see her with a headache then she is in the hospital then out. I have found the writers throw something in then have to go gather up the actors to do back story shots to try and make sense of what happen. Just look at Abby and Austin having an affair. I believe Pratt thinks of something at home and then makes the actors and crew go along with his thoughts. I have often wondered if the Actors are fit to be tied with what has been going on. The actress that played Avery is leaving. Has she had enough, just like the viewers? I would hope the Bells would wise up. They have a poor leader in Pratt. Just like Gab in Abbot Newman. This is why I am thankful for the DVR I now fast forward so much because there is nothing good to watch. They have taken all character from Victor. He use to push the edge and you could understand how he got away with something, now you question why they really have turned him into a psyco. He has no remorse or emotions. Like the other reviews I hate to see it go but if it is going to be like this let it go,
These are the stupidest story lines, I ever saw. Y & R use to be pretty good, but all these new characters are adding to all the messed up psychotic story lines, which there are, too many going on. Its hard to follow what's going on & who's doing what to whom. Every time, something bad happens to Victor they find a way to keep his character around. Doesn't this guy ever want to retire? He is as old as methusila. Why don't they kill him off?? I'm sick of him. Nikki too, She has lost her looks & got fat. This lady Avery is sickening, she's always bawling & they made her a psycho but the law does nothing. In real life, You would be sent to jail for doing the same things. Good she's leaving. This show has run it's course & as old as it has been on, Its time to end it. Nothing on this show makes any sense & all these character's act like a bunch of dingbats. This soap is over it's limits, & it's gone. The writers are running out of things for a good story line. Everyone on this show is always at each others throat's or are trying to kill each other. It has truly gone to the dogs. Next.
I am MOORE JULIET from Australia, I have been trying for 5years to get pregnant and needed help! i have Been going to the doctors but still nothing.

I am so happy!! if you also need help to get pregnant or need your ex back please contact him for help via email: or or through his website: You can also contact him through his mobile: +2348110496031. YOU CAN ALSO READ MY TESTIMONY ON MY BLOGGER LINK: He is a good spell caster
Terrible story lines. Too much going on and most of it just doesn't make sense. Michael is a cry baby whiner who is acting so pathetic I ff the parts he plays. Neil is just getting spiteful and creepy and brings nothing to the show. His friendship with Niki is just awkward. Ok Joe is part of the Innocence Foundation and Avery gushes on about how great of a man he is despite growing up with an abusive father. Then all of a sudden he's an abuser and Avery just suddenly remembers she was in an abusive marriage with him -really? Phyllis doesn't notice the love of her life was replaced by a total stranger on their wedding night? Chelsea loved Adam so much but doesn't notice any familiarity of Gabes eyes or voice but notices simularities of Adam's bad attitude toward Victor. She calls out Adam's name while making love to Gabe and doesn't wonder why that does'nt bother Gabe? Victor is already powerful and wealthy but yet he steals Jabot. (pathetic) He has no issue sending Jack away to suffer and be tortured by crazy Kelly. He does evil things yet never ever faces any consequences. He does not love his family. He loves money and power and doesn't let his family just live their lives and is consequently driving his wife crazy. He has repeatedly ignored and abandoned her when she needed him-to go off and meddle in other peoples lives and just cause hell. Enough of evil Victor the jackass. At least have him admit responsibility for not being there for Niki during her bad times-when he pretended to be on business trips while Ian was tormenting her-The hairbrush DNA thing-Phylliss in the coma etc. Also having Niki wake up with a random drunk was sickening. She is the matriarch of the family and that was out of character for her imo. And the Niki looking like she died epidode was so dumb. Y&R is becoming soooooo stupid and is getting very difficult to watch. Get good, consistent and believable story lines if you want this female 18-49 to keep watching. PS Justin Hartley is sexy though! :0)
I am so sick of the lily character, she's always been a boring character but lately she's just a spiteful bitch, and oh my god find someone who doesn't instantly fall in love with nick, and this creep joe is just weird and creepy and the fact that even around is idiotic, but seriously get rid of lily I think everything would be better.
The doubles of multiple characters is so dumb. Please get rid of Summer asap, she is a whiny brat, I fast forward every scene with her in it. Even though I think the character of Phyllis is unreplaceable, im happy Gina is on the show, I loved her since she was on GL. Lily is so boring, please send her away and have Drew come back. And please please please stop destroying every couple that fans love. 1st it was Nick & Sharon, and now its Lauren and Michael. I know this is a drama, but people actually enjoy seeing happy couples on tv, and it's not boring if the writing is done properly.
you find someone who has less sexual chemistry with nick? first it was sexless avery and now this girl who is so boring that i havent bothered to remember her name. your writers must hate your viewing public!
I have been watching Y&R for over 20 years and I have never seen it in with such a horrible story line. Have never fast forward through so much of the show. The show has gone down hill since Michelle Stafford left the show. Replacing her with that Phyllis WAS JUST A HORRIBLE IDEA, She is just terrible. If you want to keep her invest in some acting classes for her. No one can play Phyllis like Michelle Stafford. Talk about no comparison, at least the new Adam has done is homework and studied how to be the old Adam . To have Ben go from Victoria, then to Ashley, then to her daughter is not only weird, but gross. The storylines with the kids and this murder plot is just boring, either reveal the real killer or move on. I'm over it already!!! Peter Bergan is such a great actor and a big part of the show, I can't believe he would go along with this fake Jack plot. That character Summer is such a winey spoiled brat. Can you guys write it in for her to take a long vacation?. Tired of having to fast forward through her parts,, but can't take the whining anymore. Victor of course is sexy as always. Hopefully being the leader for Y&R will talk some sense into the writers and have them change the direction they are going in, or they will certainly loose long time viewers.
Move on with the horrible storylines. I fast forward the 2 Jacks. I am tired of the kids talking about the murders over and over!! Wind it up!! The writes must think the viewers are stupid and believe these storylines. Not entertaining. Not believable. Poor, poor writing!!
Young and restless has gone downhill fast. I PVR it and like to watch it at night, but with the bad writing I fast forward almost all of it. the two Jacks reminds me of the two Catherine's. the two Adams, two Cassie's what is it with all the doubles.
What are you people smoking?this Jack/Jack thing is really bad. Both story's are horrible. The murder investigation is also terrible. You need some better ones you have are asleep. Move on or your viewership is really going to tank!
CHARLES PRATT! He wrote AMC right into cancellation, anyone remember the poisoned pancakes?!?!and if the Powers That Be aren't more attentive to what the fans are saying, he'll do the same thing to Y&R? REALLY??? Phyllis can't tell the Jack look-a-like isn't really Jack? Ummm they SLEEP together don't they? And Chelsea can't figure out the similarities between "Gabe" and Adam after having sex with him either??? The Kelly keeping Jack hostage is just too stupid to even address other than can you say 'dumb cops'??? and SHE WAS STUCK IN THE NECK WITH A PEN and she is right back to normal in the next scene? Just too much bad writing to mention here, but CBS and CBS Daytime better do something quick. Even a 'BELL' show can be canceled if the bad writing continues...
Wow I have been watching this soap since 1980 and it has always had such great story lines. The writing is the same as All My Children before it got cancelled. If it doesn't turn around I am going to have to quit recording it because it is a waste of time to watch right now. I feel bad for the actors/actress on this show having to work off such horrible scripts.
