  • Victor versus Nick in custody battle

    I am so disappointed in the writers doing something so below the belt in showing the viewers that a grandfather can remove a grandchild right out from under a father's arm . Clearly that child will be raised by nannies and cooks and Nikki are past the age to raise a impression does this give the audience A grandfather who was in prison, a grandmother who commits adultry and they take away a child because of a person who is in recovery from mental illness. I am offended by the writers as an educator in special ed. People can recover with therapy and on the writers for making Sharon look bad.

    Today's episode just put a bad taste in my mouth .I am so sorry that they felt this was the way to go is why we have so many troubled kids today because of their improper upbringings.

  • Victor

    Really? I've watched Y& R my whole life and this is the first time I've ever thought about quitting. Giving Victor temporary custody of Christian? He is the one that is mentally ill!! Stop now!!
  • Billy!!! CYA!!!

    Ok Billy, secretly record Summer as she keeps trying you before you go to Phyllis!! Writers??!!!
  • Really!!

    I never do this but I have been watching young and restless for 30 years and I have never seen or heard such ridiculous story lines. It's all repetitive old storylines. Nick and Sharon really been there done that, Devon and Hilary come on victor being victor my god the writers need to come up with some new material, billy and Phyllis need to do something productive besides sex and I have always enjoyed the show but I don't bother watching very much any more same old same old get some new writers!!!

    Seeing is Believing and That how i got myself completely Cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) I was told by my medical doctor that i have HERPES Few years ago, and ever since i have been taking different kinds of medication and yet no improvement until i saw testimonies of on how he has been curing people from different kinds of diseases. Although i was skeptical about contacting him, i also knew the importance of herbal medicine, then i made up my mind and contact him we talked and he prepared and send me the medicine which i took according to his instructions. Now I'm so happy that I'm free from HERPES. My heart is so filled with joy, thank you so much for curing me. If you are reading this and you have HERPES or any other disease you can contact him on this Email address: or Whats App him on this number: +2348130714541 Or Visit his Website for more info: He cures all manner of diseases like.
  • Good grief

    I think it is ridiculous that Devon would even consider having a baby with Hillary the snake. What a dummy? I am sick of the both of them. It is so tiresome to continue to see this story line. Where is JT? How could they say Jack is not John Abbott's son, so ridiculous. I just love Victor's character. If he leaves, I will no longer watch the show. Victor makes the show. Sharon and Nick are bad together. Sharon is always looking for a man. Phyllis gets on my nerves. Victoria is too timid for me. How could she allow JT to abuse her? Kyle is such a backstabber. Send him back where he came from.
  • Writer's Bad Block

    I am wondering if the writer's are on drugs. This must STOP from a loyal fan. You cannot have the annoying Hilary and Devon to continue this relationship - SHE CANNOT BE PREGNANT. She needs to leave the show - she is VERY annoying! Also I don't understand what you're thinking when it comes to Nick and Sharon, they should NOT get back together! Please wake up over there, you may lose a loyal fan from over a 20 years of viewing.

    Just wanted to add, you should allow Devon and Simone to marry just to RUBE it in Hilary's face. Also Phyllis should NOT be allow to dictate how to handle the murder of JT - bad idea!!

    Thank you for your attention in this matter.

    Worried Fan

    . Another Review - Stinking Thinking!

    Writer's Still on Bad Drugs

    As of today's episode - April 27/18

    Now the writers have Hilary going to get Devon's sperm to get her pregnant thanks to Phyllis again?!! You have to stop this STINKING THINKING or you will lose another fan from over 20 years (as a reminder)! You need to get other writers and PAY THEM WELL to keep this show on air - PLEASE!!!


    Another added note

    After over 20 yrs of watch this show, I will be ending my restlessness. I will not longer watch this show. You should listen to your faithful fans. Until you get it together, I will not be watching this show. Your writers and on drugs by putting Devon and Hilary having a baby together, it's STINKING THINKING! Also Nick and Sharron back together. What's is wrong with you writers?!!

    Good bye and I will encourage other watches to agree with me!!!! "SAD

    Sharon and Nick - UGGHHHH!! Abby - still pathetic acting (sure she's going for Arturo) - nothing new! Devon - useless! Pathetic!! Hilary - REALLY annoying and pathetic!! 5/17

    Oh come on!!! Can you believe Devon?!! How much more stupid can he be?!! If he wants a child so badly - have it with his new girlfriend!! Let's hope Hateful Hilary doesn't fall pregnant!!! The new (think he's 'IT') Kyle is such a weazel!! 5/7

    Can someone stop that stupid train wreck of a Hilary? So annoying to watch!! Phyliss is just as bad for giving bad advice!! 5/4

    PLEASE, PLEASE, NO MORE of stupid Hilary!! She is just so annoying to watch!! Devon is really stupid!! Just thinking with his bottom half!! 4/25

    Just when I thought it was bad enough that the writers are bringing Nick and Sharon back together, they bring Devon and annoying Hilary back together! Get rid of her - so off putting to watch! 3/30

    Nick is such a sucker. I wouldn't pay Chelsea's mom a single dime! 3/5/18

    No fan of Abby but they sure are making her act like an idiot and a fool. Not that she isn't already portrayed as one already. Who the heck has sex with whomever just because they are feeling out of it? Everyone is sleeping with anyone! What kind of show is this? There are no morals and fidelity whatsoever in anyone. You may as well have a porn show! 11/17

    Can Hilary just disappear from the show!! She's so annoying to watch and take Juliet with her - they make a nice pair!! 10/05

    Ugh!!! When can we stop watching stupid (I'm the victim) Juliet? She's so depressing!!! The way she is going after Cain is so pathetic to watch!! Bring in another mogul to bring Victor down!! So annoying!! 9/21

    The way the writers have Victor manipulating his grandchildren is just too disgusting to watch!! Really pathethic!! 8/28

    Not an admirer of Cain or Lily - but can Billy please SHUT UP!! He's so sanctimonious!! He's done many a stupid things and here he is acting all high and mighty!! Annoying!! Can he just vanish! Enough of stupid Hilary and get rid of Juliet. She's got that kind of face that is so pathetic - hard to watch. She seemed to be well aware of what was happening when she had sex with Cane. Now she's acting as if she's the victim? She looks guilty as hell. 6/29

    Adam did not murder Delia.. it was an accident! So Chloe gets off scott free killing him? What about Billy? He left his daughter alone in the car!! He's also partially to blame. Yeah, one cannot forget Delia's death, because the writer's went on and on and on and on etc about it. Glad that Kevin will be finally out of the picture - he is just as annoying as Chloe! 6/14

    Hilary is still pathetic!! Don't like Juliet. They both must go. Terrible to watch! Thank goodness we've seen the last of Chloe! I suppose now we are going to see a lot of Kevin being pathetic and all whiny!!! Please shut him up!! 6/5/17

    Dillon is now starting to get quite annoying and is becoming quite pathetic like Sharon. He's been with Sharon too long, he's catching some of her stupidity. Why would anyone give shared custody to them? That kid is not even their son - he won't even remember much at that age. They are confusing him even more by hanging around. Since he is Nick's brother, why can't they just go visit instead of starting all that cr*p. Great job getting two psychos together - Chloe and Sharon!! Let someone find out about Chloe's evil doings!!! Chloe and Kevin - BORING!! 12/3

    I suppose Cuckoo Chloe is going to get away with it? More about Delia again!? Billy is annoying!Just like 9/02

    Why is Adam always getting the short end of the stick? Are we back to the Delia saga again? Why do we have to sit and watch that over and over again? I understand the grief when a child is lost, but they've been carrying on and on about this for quite a while? 7/18

    Ewww!! Billy and Phyllis - Has Billy no respect for his brother? There's a line you do not cross - what a sleazeball!! Like I stated before - the latest Billy seems a bit slimy like Joe. Not like the original Billy! Not one has come close to the original. Never mind Phyllis!! Where's the loyalty and faithfulness? Of course, Psycho Sharon is getting away with it again? Can Hilary just die now? So sick of watching her 5/13

    Ugghhhhh!! Can we get rid of 'Mad' Max?!! To have someone so young premeditating and committing such a terrible deed (even if I don't like Abby) is hard to watch. What are the writers thinking!! Don't like his wooden acting either!! 4/21

    Gave the new "Billy" a chance - a tad better than the previous one - but still not holding my breath on this one - he seems a bit slimy to me like Joe! Can we watch less of stupid Hilary? The sudden quick switch back to Devon is really pathetic! 3/5

    Abby now pregnant??!! Ughh!! What with her stupid laugh and her pathetic acting, we now have to watch her going gaga over the baby? Max is a brat - the writers now have him premeditating murder? Stitch let him walk all over them - their parenting skills suck. Hilary's acting sucks, we now have to watch Neil binge drinking again and acting like an ass?! 2/22

    People dying and or people getting sick. All this and the sadness over the start of the new year? How depressing!!! Sharon and her annoying psychiatrist is really pathetic. And as usual Billy in hospital bed, stilll carrying on about Delia and car accident. Time to get past that, the writers keep on bringing that up. 01/19

    Enough already - they keep on and on about Delia! Get on with the story - sick of hearing Billy blaming everyone but himself over and over! Enough already of Psycho Sharon - such a bad actress! How can a psychiatrist even have free control like that - unless she owns the clinic? 12/01

    Really stupid story line - how in the world can doctors or so called psychiatrist can really get away with stealing a baby and planting a dead baby in its place? Sage has been with her baby since birth and don't tell me that a mother does not recognize her own child's face!! How can anyone think that Sage wouldn't recognize her own child! Now it's going to be all about Sharon again with her stupid fake baby!! 11/09

    Neil is a terrible actor. I presume Hilary fell down a cliff? Won't she have some sort of broken bones at least?? Some scratches or cuts? There's nothing like that!! 9/9

    Stitch and Abby??!!!! (SHUDDER!!!!) Even an ape can act better than her!! The new Kyle is UGHHH!!! 04/30

    Wow!! Another stupid story line 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!! 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? 02/19

    Seriously??!!!! The new guy as Adam?? Yeah, he had a face surgery - wow, somehow the writers have changed his vocal cords as well??? How did the writers think they can get away with such a stupid story!! 12/01

    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! Sharon's acting is not helping either! The new Billy does not go with Victoria or Chelsea. Less of stupid Ian, aggravating Mariah and the 'hard to stomach' Sharon!! ENOUGH is enough! 8/29

    New Billy - a tad better than the old, stress is on 'tad'. Definitely no zing!! 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? Enough of Kevin already and kick him out of the police station. 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. 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. 07/07

    It's time to get Phyllis back!! She was nasty but in an interesting but not irritating way. New Kelly is a little bit of an improvement over the old Kelly - but just as nauseating! New Billy is still way past nauseating!! 4/25

    EWWWWWW!!!! Sharon and Nick making eyes at each other is making me gag!!! Billy and Kelly - a definite NO!! 1/10/2014

  • You have got to be kidding!

    Nick & Sharon are pathetic! I can't believe you let them get back together again! That story is so overdone. Really disappointed.
  • Disappointed

    I have been watching this show, from day one. But I cannot stand the new Phyliss, I never liked her, as an actress. And the new Billy, yuck. I am glad you have people that aren't handsome, and beauiful. That's a plus. Cain, Billy, Ashleys new boy toy. Devon. All average looking. Don't know if I can continue watching this show. Really just can't stand this Phyliss. And who is dressing Abby come on people. Blue denim long shirt and that Gotti looking red long skirt. Come on people you can do better than that she needs to show off her figure not covered up with that horrible looking clothes.
  • Tweet-lee dee and tweett-lee dummer

    Who's Idea was to make Sharon and Phyliss cohorts. Nothing good has materialize in that union. They both look very stupid and phony!
  • Goodbye Y&R

    Been a loyal fan since 1979. The storylines of late have been so difficult to watch - just make me feel annoyed and frustrated that the writers would do this to the characters I have loved all these years. Y&R tries to promote stories with important themes like domestic abuse, or alcoholism, etc. and tell the audience where you can get help if you are suffering, and then promoting family values and Christian values with other storylines, and then you have the gall to have these supposedly intelligent women hide JT's body and covering up his death? Instead the story could have been used to show how to properly handle an accidental death rather than hypocritically promote the idea that in some cases it is better to commit a crime and cover it up. Y&R, I bid you goodbye. You are dead to me after all these years. Not watching anymore thanks to the stupidest storylines ever and I can't bear to waste any more of my life waiting for the writing to turn around.
  • Are the writers children??

    The writers obvious think their viewers are stupid or ***ed or just desperate for something to watch. Wakey Wakey!! Friday you hit the mark that was the best I have ever seen in awhile from you so called writers. But than here comes Monday

    1. First even in fear Nikki would not listen to Phyliss

    2. Nor would Sharon

    3. Why did not anyone hit 911 even as they ran up the steps even in the room even after the situation

    4. How are you accomplices when you are just arriving in the room no motives only concern

  • Script is written by high school kids

    Terrible writing. Not logical at all. Not TV for adults thats for sure. Total CRRAAPP.

    Wow! What is going on with the writing!!???!! Every character is doing a 180. I have been a huge Y&R fan for YEARS!! I am totally not liking the story lines. Sorry Y&R you have lost a long time fan. That goes for the Bold and the Beautiful. Watched that to for YEARS b/c Bell does both. Done with that also. Writing is bad.

    I'm interested if anybody else sees this? Please post.

    Bye Y&R
  • The New Kyle

    Do Not like the new kyle, he was always clean cut preppy guy now he is rude and conniving and looks nothing like a stuck up preppy. Not a good choice in character.
  • Victor Newman/EBraeden

    No Victor/Eric Newman/Braeden no me and other viewers!!!
  • Domestic Abuse

    I used to watch several soap operas for a very long time, but over the years I stopped watching ALL of them except The Young and the Restless... However if they let this play out where Victoria forgives JT, I WOLL NEVER EVER WATCH IT AGAIN!!! FOR ONCE SHOW THE WOMANS STRENGTH AND SHOW HER WALKING AWAY


    How can you place Nick back with Sharon who has been with Victor (the father) and the brothers, Nick, Adam and Dillon? This is a really bad message to send to all the young people who watch this show.

    As for Chelsea, what about "second chances"? She deserved a "second chance" like Phyllis, who changed her son's paternity results, ran down Christine, went to Jail, lied and cheated, among other things, and yet they were allowed to overcome their Even Chloe got away with Adam's murder. And another thing,, how can you bring back JT into Victoria's life. Clearly she is a better business woman than she is at romantic relationships--Give her a break. She deserves some happiness.

    JT is downright rude, condescending, crude and disloyal. He seems very "flaky" and clearly does not love her, and she is trying so hard to make it work. JT is about to blow up.

    Who comes up with these "plots" anyway? Lately they suck. GI am getting a bit "turned off" and might quit watching this show after 30+ years.

    Give Nick a chance at love, but for heaven's sake not with Sharon. What happens to Nick if Dillon comes back? Nick is a good guy, he too deserves a break.

    Get rid of the "Lesbian" twist with Mariah. Give her a change of heart and get her a good man. After all she has been through, she deserves some happiness. As for Hillary, she is a basket case. I like her fire and I am so glad that Devon can see right through her. Bring back Neil so that he can get her out of their office and back to her office at the TV station. She needs to be subdued. How about getting a criminal to father her child, which she inadvertently discovers. That would certainly send her into a "tailspin" and subdue her for awhile.

    COME ON, GUYS, GET SOME BETTER STORYLINES HERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  • Mrs. Annoyed

    I am sooooo sick of Ashley. Why is it that the writers having Jack to do all of the apologizing? Ashley was wrong to try to take his seat as he was trying to take care of their Mother and still trying to do his job. She should have been trying to help with their Mother also, Instead of trying to take over the company. She's been sneaky and dirty with it. But Jack is the one that has to apologize to her. She makes me sick. and I'm sick of Hillary and her bossy tail. Devon acts like he is afraid of her. He just lets her have her way. They need to let someone just tell her spoil butt off. make me a Character on there... I would love to tell Hillary, Phyllis & Ashley Oh I would tell Sharon to get a life! She is too dog gone NOSEY!!!
  • Writer's Block

    My all time favorite soap opera has lost it spark and appeal. First, Mariah needs the boot and Tessa should go from rags to riches. I have no interest in watching same sex relations on daytime television but rather primetime. Mariah and Tessa is NOT a sizzling storyline. When I can predict what will happen next, IT MUST BE WRITER'S BLOCK!! Come on you guys, where is the creativity!!!
  • Young and the restleas

    The story line on the young and the restless is so boring we need a better story line the way it ends no good we need previews on whats going to happen the whole storyis just no good anymore we need action
  • Sam has a patent ductus arteriosis PDA

    For the love of God who wrote this rediculous story line! PDA ligations are not only very common in the NICU but they also are not as serious (life and death) as they are being played out in this rediculous story line. First of all I have NEVER see a baby yet that has required a blood transfusion from one person, let alone more than one. When a baby does receive a transfusion (one unit)( donation) can give them at least 4 transfusions, because they receive such tiny amounts of blood. It is also extremely rare (have never seen) for a baby to die from a PDA ligation. Although there are complications in any treatment, this is not something that should be get your facts straight before airing something like this!
  • Michael & Graham

    I think if you'd pair up these two men it would be a plus! Good attracts bad! Let's give the viewers something to talk about!! Now that Days have Will & Sonny let's make Michael question his sexuality and be drawn to Graham!
  • Is Abby waiting to be tossed a fish?

    Will someone please toss big bass, bug-eyed, always scowling Abby some food, so she can shut that permanently gaping mouth.

    Sharon is the annoying aging lesbian, not Mariah - so from now on, this great young and beautiful actress Grimes will be forced to lock lips with young girls or old hags? I guess she'll soon be leaving for a better gig.

    I have enjoyed Dina, even if the Alz storyline was predicted from day one.

  • After 38 years a fan I'm done

    I will not watch a lesbian storyline. New producers and writers are fools. You are sinking a perfectly good show for a small percentage of the audience. Disgusting ! A shame because I enjoy some of the other storylines but this is nuts!
  • Ruining a good show

    I have also watched Y&R nearly from its inception. The story line between Mariah and Tessa has greatly disappointed me. The show used to be a fun escape from the now I am faced with giving up a long time tradition with a show I have enjoyed so much to stop watching for good. Is this the direction Hollywood really wants to take? If so, I think you are offending a lot of people and will lose a following of tried and true Y&R fans. That decision is up to you.
  • busternbb

    So very watching YnR since its birth in 1973-I am burying it as of today. Making Mariah and Tessa a couple is sickening. Enough homosexuality on tv. Stop shoving it down peoples throats. Victor the mustach is deplorable. He needs to go to prison. Lily n Cane should be together. Period. Juliet is a conceiving beotch. bye. RIP.

  • Dr Sadik is amazing. God bless him

    I can't believe I'm actually writing a testimony. Thanks to Dr. Sadik! What a valley my family has been through. My husband said he was done, he said he wanted a divorce. There was another woman who once told me she will do anything to have my man by her side; he said he was miserable with me. I wanted to run away and disappear at first, but something stopped me in my tracks. I had the desire in my heart to stand for my marriage and then I came across Dr Sadik website. Thank God for Dr Sadik! I was told from various places that I officially had an 'out' from my marriage, but I didn't want out. I felt the tug of my marriage vows and knew this whole situation was bigger than me. I praise God that I didn't submit to my hurt and emotions. The circumstances were horrible. The pain I experienced was so deep, it was physical. My faith when I came across Dr Sadik was solid. I had this strong trust in him. There are still real spell caster on the net. Now my family is a living breathing example!" (You can contact Dr Sadik on his email or visit his website at
