  • Ugh young and the restless

    This story line is utterly ridiculous!!! A double for Jack and how does he know where the bathroom is in the house? He knows no details about the people in his life. And why wouldn't the real Jack call Phyllis first instead of Kyle or better yet call 911.
  • Young & restless

    I'm tired of Neil snake ass, take him off the show get him caught or whatever. Sage... a snake too why is her sneaky tail even on the show, dumb move show. Adam, need to be caught, how can you continue to let him get away with stuff, kill him off for real!!


    Devon is an idiot since he got his inheritance. Who the hell spends money like that? Oh, wait - Devon does! Neil is a terrible actor. Making him go psycho? Even more boring!! He's not even a nurse or have any medical knowledge - but he somehow knows how to make up an IV and know just what t give Hilary? I presume she fell down a cliff? Won't she have some sort of broken bones at least?? Some scratches or cuts? There's nothing like that!! Stupid story line! What's with Victoria being so "loyal" to Victor all of a sudden - complete change of character. All the soaps are getting boring - all with baby themes as well. Are they all the same writers? Maybe that's why all the soaps are doing downhill! 9/9

    Seriously??!! What right did Billy have to be so sanctimonious?. When he had his 'joy' - no problem, but when the other side does it to him - he goes all "Oh no - you cannot do that to me" and be all malicious (that is so not like the original Billy - this one really sucks!) He's acting like a woman scorned. What are the writer's thinking? That we would feel sorry for him? He still had to be 'fined' for leaving a child alone in a car - nothing was done about that! What about him shooting Adam? How about him getting caught for that!! I would love to see that happen - he's so annoying! Stitch and Abby??!!!! (SHUDDER!!!!) Abby is already sickening enough - to put stitch with her is really stretching it and making the story line worse!! Is she a nymphomaniac or something and even an ape can act better than her!! Also agree with the other person that the new Kyle is UGHHH!!! 04/30

    Wow!! Another stupid storyline besides the last one when everyone survived the air crash!! A double of Jack!??? Really???!!! Don't tell me Phyllis who has seen and felt Jack's body, never mind his every little stupid actions and mannerisms, cannot tell that this is a fake!! Come on!!! How do you duplicate a voice?? Never mind the exact body shape - this is one big stupid story line!! They are killing off some people in this weird murder thing going on, how about getting rid off the most annoying people instead of the wrong ones - for example, Sharon, Kevin, Kelly, Mariah and stupid Joe!! 04/15

    Really!!???? I know it's a soap, but the whole lot of them surviving a crash???? Walking around like they just fell on their knees and not badly hurt from that kind of an impact? . Real stupid story line! 02/19

    Billy still sucks in acting... new Abby is still terrible in her acting. Time to get Kevin to pay for his crime for hacking int o the hospital records and Billy for leaving a child alone in a car? What's wrong with the writers? The evil and wrong doings of "annoying" characters are left and not punished and the good gets it all the time? Sick of watching Avery's husband, Joe - so slick, slimy and cheesy looking. Didn't bring anything to the story - not worth watching. Repeat again - time to get rid of Chelsea's father, Jeff - useless and annoying character. Neil, Mariah, Lily boring acting and story line. Devon and his dad's wife - yuck.... story line also boring. More on Stitch. Give Cane a more better and active role that might give his wife a life instead of matchmaking and make her more interesting to watch! On the road to not watching anymore!! 01/21

    Seriously??!!!! The new guy as Adam?? Yeah, he had a face surgery - wow, somehow the writers have forgotten to transplant the black/brown hair, did Adam's hair regrow in a blondish brown color and did they change his vocal cords as well??? Did they also make him wear stillettos to make him look taller?? (sarcasm) How did the writers think they can get away with such a stupid story!! Second new Billy is still annoying - pity they had to make the baby his, now we have to suffer watching him more with all the stupid soppiness!! Bleah!! Fastforwarding more now then ever!! If I can give this rating a minus I would. 12/01

    Finally the cat is out of the bag!! Hopefully we don't have to watch Soppy Sharon and Nick so much!! Billy (second new one) still cannot stomach. Time to get Kevin to pay for his crime for hacking into the hospital records!! What's wrong with the writers!! 11/06

    All I can say is these last few episodes with Sharon is making me gag!!! Getting to seriously not watching it anymore! Must be the same writers of DOOL and BB. The story lines in those series are also sucking!! 9/30

    Can't stand Ian when he first came on the scene and to this day I still find him way annoying. I can't stand Mariah either, these two just spoils the story line and make it not worth watching. I don't know why Dillon and others stand around and listen to the rubbish ramblings that comes out of Ian's mouth! I would have just walked away. In this case - I just fastforward!! Let's hope the writers are not going to draw out this stupid Ian/Mariah story!! Sharon's acting is not helping either! How about more of Stitch instead - how about someone coming forward to clear his name and pair him off with Victoria. They go well together. I prefer him to the 'new' Billy ! The new Billy does not go with Victoria or Chelsea. In actual fact, he doesn't go - period! Less of stupid Ian, aggravating Mariah and the 'hard to stomach' Sharon!! ENOUGH is enough! What's with there being alcohol in the house/office when Victor knows Nikki is an alcoholic. Just doesn't make any sense! This soap is going to the dogs!! 8/29

    New Billy - a bit better than the old new Billy - the stress is on 'bit'. Definitely no zing!! The latest Billy is portraying the 'Billy' we all like incorrectly!! When 'snitching' on Snitch - the Billy Miller wouldn't have stood there with a stupid smirk on his face!! Downright off putting!! With Billy Miller - he would have gotten away with murder and we would still be on his side. With these two new Billys - whatever they've done or are doing - somehow just brings the worst reactions out of their fans!!! There is no connection with the fans!!! Chelsea and Billy - a big yuck! Why is Kevin getting away with a crime just because he has connections and Stitch gets to pay for his?? They seem to knock down the good actors and give the bad actors the thumbs up!! Enough of Kevin already and kick him out of the police station and get the hospital to file a suit against him! I also agree about Cain and Lily - boring couple! Has Lily opened her own 'Match a couple' club?? Get her a life!! Neil and his new wife - terrible to watch. Get Devon his old girlfriend back - not the terrible beanpole model actress, the first girlfriend!! How about bringing back Sophia and Ronan Malloy and Chance - they are better actors/actress!!! Less of Chelsea's father - pathetic actor. Hunter King also not a very good actress. ENOUGH already of Sharon and Nick - lost interest to watch them. Bring Phyllis and her son back already! 07/07

    I agree with the other reviewer that it's time to get Phyllis back!! She was nasty but in an interesting but not irritating way. The new Kelly is a little bit of an improvement over the old Kelly - but just as nauseating! The new Billy is still way past nauseating!! Sharon and Nick .... not worth watching ... ughh!! A lot of fastforwarding whenever they are together!!! Now the secret is out about the Cassie 'clone' (hope we are not going to see anymore of her!) How about blowing Sharon out of the water with her so called 'secret' and get it over and done with. Had enough of her already!! One more rating down!! Almost time to stop watching! 4/25

    EWWWWWW!!!! Sharon and Nick making eyes at each other is making me gag!!!!!! Victoria and Snitch - they seem to match nicely ... Billy and Kelly - a definite NO!! Enough of Victor the dictator!! How about nice things happening to Adam and Jack for once??? Every episode is gloom and doom - not so enjoyable to watch anymore! The way the story is going and has already gone, is making me lower the rating! 1/10/2014

    YES, please send Sharon posthaste on a slow boat to China! ENOUGH of Sharon. I really cannot stand her acting! How could the writers even make her dead daughter to be so devious and ugly in mind for that age? When I saw that I couldn't even believe what I was watching. Get Chelsea and Adam back together, I think they go very well together. How about more on Devon?
  • Victor Newmen Get what's coming to him!!!!!

    I hate that Victor gets away with all his dirty deeds. And the writers does nothing to change that. A lot of bad story lines
  • Devons a Sucker

    Devon is going to squander his inheritance because he is a soft pansy. He's so easy to manipulate and gives in to blackmail way to easy. Colin is walking all over his weak azz. He truly sucks as a billionaire. Still choosing gold digging tramps too. I know catherine was just sticking it to Jill leaving devon her money but damnn what the heck was she thinking. A bum would make better use of that money than him.

  • How i got re-united with my wife back

    I know you all out there have read and go through several comment about Ajayi Ololo, I am out here to affirm that those comments are not just comments, As they are sincere and truthful words written by those who have been there and found help in reunite with the one they hold dear to there heart, get there Job back after been sacked, Win lotteries, fixed broken marriages and got different kind of problems solved by this great man called Ajayi ololo. I can tell you this because i also asked him for help to cast a spell to fix my relationship with the only woman i have ever loved after been married to this woman that was carrying my baby. Normally am the kind of person that do not believe in love, As all i do is to work hard to be so rich. But when it came to been Mae it was different i fell for her in every way. Maybe i don't know what love is because i never felt it for any of one my ex lovers before i got married. Anyway the only detail i can give is that my heart literally beat fast when she was around, anytime she ran his finger through my chest. I always knew my past will always hurt not matter what i do but i never gave it too much thought because i never thought i will meet this kind of woman. At the time i meant her it was only a while before the relationship became serious because i bet she loved me also. We moved in together and our relationship was the best and i found peace with her. She was kind soft with me always i mean my life was a fairy for a moment. But then again my past life that was to be left in the closet got out. It almost ruined my life i almost lost the love of my life but Ajayi the spell caster help me restored that love that was always there. That is how i know every of this comment about this spell caster online is noting but the truth. As i am about to end it here, I know not everybody will believe this, As many will think that its just something on the internet but my heart knows that every of this word to this spell casting temple i am talking about that finally brought Happiness to my life after meeting with every single spell caster online that were frauds and liars apart from him that was opened minded about his work which was so true and real and brought Joy to my life. Am Droping Ajayi contact for those who believe and needs help to fix there life problems:
  • Victor sucks

    PLEASE GET RID OF VICTOR, apparently our post don't make an difference, victors still up to no damn good, everybody should stop watching and let the ratings drop and hope for changes to come.
  • Paragon Project may be our redemption

    As once before, Y&R changed out a whole family. Maybe this Paragon Project is a way of bringing in a whole new family to remove Victor as the patriarch. I have watched too many years to continue to watch this downturn of evil in every character, every couple. Is there no one that has decent character? Why would we believe Jack is afraid of his actions while kidnapped and threatened? Why do we have to continue to watch decent roles turn into evil roles? And these couples that fight so hard to get together only to be torn apart instantly. Writers really need to put in more time, more thought for more interesting, creative, plausible plots. Please!!!
  • Lost accent

    Has anyone else noticed on Y&R that Marissa has lost her "accent"?
  • Belly bump

    I'm gonna scream if I see Sage hold her belly one more time!
  • A fire needs to be lit!

    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!
  • The Young and the Restless ongoing stories

    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.
  • Disappointed

    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.

  • Ridiculous!

    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.....

  • disappointment

    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.
  • Get rd of Victor

    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.
  • Goin' down

    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.
  • Tired of this long storyline

    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
  • Will tolerate Victor

    We enjoy Y&R and want it to keep going.
  • I don't like Victor

    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.



    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,
  • The Y & R has gone from bad to worse!

    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.

  • Is Time Victor Pays

    Get to the point to long and drawn out always get away with all kinds of time he pays for his actions
  • Just keeps getting worse...

    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)
  • victor finding identicals Been there done that too much

    When is Adam going to be Adam and this bull of Victor finding identical is ridiculous.

    Why doesn't someone find an identical Victor b/c BEEN DONE!!! Already too much with

    Cassie and now Jack. When is Jack coming back? And Adam as Adam?

    I have been watching for 40 years and getting really not at all believable. Do better like

    you used to. .
  • Lilly is a bitch

    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.
  • plz fire the writers/producers

    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.
