    They've been dumping people left and right saying it's to save money, but then they bring in new people????? Keep Abby and cancel all these newcomers. The stories you guys are writing are pathetic at best, and just abruptly ending the stories you inherited is disenfranchising loyal viewers like myself. Tivo'd this week and last night deleted all without viewing ... just don't have an interest in wasting my time watching the garbage they are spewing. Are there no writers left with imaginations? Is this why we are being bombarded with talk shows and reality tv because there is no imagination left? Extremely disappointed.

    The new writers are going to cause the Young and the Restless to lose viewers. I have never watched General Hospital because of the poor acting and storylines. I don't know who is responsible for all of these changes, but if they continue, Young and the Restless will be canceled like all of the other soaps due to lost viewership. The next change should be with the writers who are sabatoging what was a great soap for years and had more viewers than any of the other ones on television.

    Yes, I think the management at the CBS want to destroy slowly the Y&R so they getting rid off the liked characters and bringing the new ones like ....models? Ouch, this is not real and good for the show.
    Abby, Ashley, Genevieve are so talented and loved...and what they fired them .
    Cheers from Canada!

    I agree with you totally the storyline really sucks. It's so sad the way the writer have young and restless so boring.

    If summer is the young actress of the week then the young and the restless should have kept abbey because summer acts just like her abbey. The writer could have done so much with ashley and genevieve character. This storyline having Victor lose his business is a bad line and the writer already let phyllis and roland get away with murder so sharon is going to get away with murder too. Writer Get with the real world and write good and reasonable storyline please.

    The y&r is going down hill. Terrible writing and too many new faces. I have been a fan since the show began but due to the terrible writing and bad acting, I don' t watch any longer. The show is terrible now What happened with their writers? This is a big disappointment

    I don't recognize this soap anymore! I am NOT happy with new story lines and why are so many being fired supposedly due to budget yet new ones hired that according to rumors are friends of new producer? I think Y&R's days are numbered. Just read all the message boards!It's a total mess!

    Y&R does not use the AA characters already on the show. Why would you want to add more? What are they going to do with them? Strand them on Jabot Island w/ Neil Winters? What's the point of bringing in more AA characters to a segregated cast? This move is just as bad or worse than MAB bringing in nuMalcolm, Sofia, YoHarmony, & Sarge. They were used for a hot minute in poorly developed plot points, sidelined and promptly discarded.

    Not only are the new head honchos bringing in two AA characters, they are adding two hispanic characters. For what purpose has yet to be revealed. I don't like the direction Y&R is taking right now. Y&R has been on a downward spiral for 4 plus years now. It is sizzle or fizzle time for this show without much wiggle room between the two. I hope whatever they are trying to do works out right this time. I am totally disappointed in the direction the show is taking.

    I have to agree with all the comments posted here today. Y&R is really going down and fast. We don't need new characters such as these 2 new ones, I don't even like Leslie and now that they are bringing in a brother for her, I am sure this means they are pairing Leslie and Neil together! Ugh! New writers, try to develop better s/l's and give us some decent writing. I have watched this soap since it started and in no way does it come close to comparing it to the way it started. Just terrible....

    really, the show needs to find another area for Sharon's kitchen. For years its been behind the closet when you first walk into the house. There is just no space.
