Hmm...Is this is a JFP decision? If it is, there's no doubt somebody wants Y&R off of CBS. The best way to kill a soap is to get rid of its best characters for no apparent reason. Martha Byrne, who played Lilly on As the World Turns, and a pivotal character on that show, was let go under the guise contract negotiations didn't go well, while show didn't recover with her disappearance and bad recast, followed by the show's cancellation just three years later. Also, the Frankie Frame character on Another World, was written off and the actress let go, and again, the show suffered terribly and got cancelled a few years later. Both these instances, I'm almost certain, occurred under JPF. Come to think of it, JPF was also on Santa Barbara a year before that show got cancelled. Yeah, they don't call JPF the soap killer for nothing.

I know, without Michael Muhney, Y&R is not worth watching for me. Never thought they would be foolish enough to release him.

He posted he was let go. I hope all is well with his family and I hope he does take some time to decide what to do next but would love for him to be here -as either Philip K or Peter Blake.

Exactly. HOUSETOPS we really need him here - I love the idea of him as Peter or Philip.

Twitter yesterday was so entertaining. EB, NB, MW, DD chimed in on why Michael was fired saying it wasn't the executive producers fault but the rumors are stating that they are recasting?? 8) 8)
