    I agree I can't believe all the doomsday opinions since MS it seems has desided to leave the show. I agree she will be missed but she like any other actress or actor who desides to move on can be replaced. JC is another story she has been there since day one and has passed away she can not be replaced. MS or nor MS the show will go on just like it is going on without JC and she was loved by all. I wish MS well but she has the right to make her own decisions and the show has the right to make theres I don't see the end of Y&R because of this.

    Losing the beloved "Mrs. C" will not end the show. What will end the show is this insipid writing, the disrespect to veteran characters, and the watering down of quality with this invasion of new characters.
    Chelsea--what a tired S/L you have. Ho hum.
    Chloe--really?? You have no friends (except Chelsea) and are married to a Chipmunk.
    Dylan--get a grip. No one can be as stupid as you appear to be.
    Tyler--Constipated? I can recommend a laxative. I am tired of your constipated look.
    Leslie--Do you work?
    Neil--wants so much to be the BIG MAN in a corporation--you are on the right track keep chasing that tail.

    ITA!

    I also think that if they wanted to end the show, they would have allowed MAB to continue to do her damage and not fired her. She was destroying the history of this show.

    This regime definitely needs to improve, but the show has come a long way from the train wreck of MAB. Yes, the newbies are focused on a little too heavily. But it's not the imbalance of Phyllis & Victor under MAB.

    Yes, the vets need to be given more focus. But there is already a better balance. Michael & Lauren have their first real storyline in years. Jack's storyline with drug addiction was big for PB. We are seeing more of vets like DD (Paul), KSJ (Neil), CLB (Michael), TB (Lauren) - who was put on contract! JW has mentioned getting an apartment in LA, hopefully equals more Jill too.

    The biggest issue I have is the continued inconsistant writing. The writers seem to be changing direction every few weeks instead of charting a course and staying on it.

    JC passing will be hard for the show. MS is a disappointment. But neither of these are end of the show.

    I don't think Y&R is on it's last legs, but I do think the writers are introducing far too many new characters.
    Granted we need new blood, but not a deluge of it. Gradual change is much easier for everyone. I don't see a lot of the old cast leaving as yet, but anything can happen.

    I think the issue is more the HOW they are introducing these characters.

    It's the fact that Tyler was introduced as Leslie's brother and then they went with a storyline focused around THEM with Neil/Lily/Cane playing supporting roles, instead of the other way around is the problem.

    It's the fact that they brought in Dylan as a past love interest to a fairly new character Avery, and then throw him into a storyline with another newer character Chelsea, with long term staple characters like Sharon/Nick/Adam (I count Adam as he's a Newman) are supporting roles, is an issue.

    Even the paternity storyline is missing the mark. Instead of focusing on the history here, Jack/Phyllis/Nick/Sharon, the focus is on two new faces. Summer and Kyle may have been around for a while, but not in the version they are now. They could still have their younger storyline, but putting the focus there is a mistake.

    And that's what is hurting Y&R.
