I just signed on here to complain about the new format. Glad to see I’m not alone. Bring back the previews!

I could not agree more. This new format is for the birds. I like getting a hint of what is happening tomorrow. Gives me time to speculate of what may or may not happen.

I enjoyed the recaps and the background on JT. He is better looking than when he left! Wish he was going to be staying around GC!

I am happy to see changes in the show, new sets, more outdoor scenes, people even dressed for the weather...

Except almost everyone grabs their coat, then walks out the door with it over their arm. Maybe it's just me, but I actually put my coat ON before going out in the cold. At least today Victoria had her coat on at the club. Of course, she was wearing a cocktail-like dress with one shoulder exposed, so she would have really been cold if she walked out carrying her coat.

Very true. J.T. is just as boring as ever. After all the hoopla about how his return to Genoa City was going to shake things up, and all he's done all week is sit around in the apartment with Victoria, crying into their wine, while they moan about how Reed is blowing them off and wants nothing to do with them. Nothing at all has changed.

Most of us here and elsewhere seem not to like the new format. I really suggest those of us who don't like it let TPTB know about it now (on official Twitter and Facebook accounts) like I have. If we do, they may revert it back to the previous format. Or maybe they could keep the recaps and also include the previews (that only last like 10 seconds).

Ah, yes. That is true. I was thinking about the outdoor scenes at the park, where people had actual coats and scarves on. I can see why the director does not have the characters dress before getting out the door. That takes us several minutes in real life (not to mention going out to start the car first), so I suppose they don't want to waste that kind of screen time!

As much as I like the current writing.. I DO NOT LIKE THIS NEW FORMAT!!! Soaps for decades in the U.S. has always had previews at the ending.... I think it will return.. I am sure Y&R is getting a lot of complaints..

I agree; I definitely do not like this. One thing that irritates me more than anything else is having important things happening off screen that we, the viewers, should be seeing. It is disorienting and leaves me with a very bad feeling about the show in general.
