    On a break.

    According to a report by Soap Opera Digest, "The Young and the Restless" co-head writer, Scott Hamner, will be taking a leave of absence from the show. The writer, who's been on staff at "Y&R" since 2006, claims that executive producer/head writer, Maria Arena Bell, convinced him to just take a few months break after he told her he had made the decision to let his contract run out.

    Are you glad Hamner will return, or do you think the show could use some new blood on the writing staff? Let Soaps.com know by voting below.

    The entire crew of "writers" should have been FIRED months, no make that YEARS ago. This show has been going down into the SEWER since MAB and her cohorts turned this show into something that has been HORRIBLE to watch.

    Story lines, plots drag on ENDLESSLEY, NO DENOUEMENT, putting the majority of us in limbo and have stopped watching. There are too many story lines going on at the same time. For the sake of Mr. Bill Bell Sr, get this show back on TRACK before it is CANCELLED.

    There are too many USELESS CHARACTERS that amount to nothing but aggravation to us.

    The DESTRUCTION of Sharon Case's character has been on-going for too long. I lay the blame on MAB because she hates MTS and SC who happen to be best friends in real life. She is the MAIN ONE WHO SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRED.

    NEPOTISM exists on both shows controlled by the Bells.

    No one should be given the task, job of getting wealthy by writing NONSENSE. I'll make it simple. Did they take classes in universities to make them qualified to become writers? If so, they are doing an ASININE job with the so-called "writing." The people who post have better ideas and can write better than they can.

    Genie Francis is one of the most talented actress's in daytime and she has many fans that love her and the character she plays on Y&R.She has chemistry with all her costars and she's in one of the best storylines on Young and Restless in a long time. Also the shows pairing with Stephen Nichols is wonderful,their chemistry brings alot to the show.Haters can keep hating on her but that's to bad because she's not going anywhere!
