    Yeah..not leaving. (CBS)
    Restless Rant
    Week of January 7 – 11:

    The most compelling stories right now are Jack’s detox (amazing acting), and the Newman Enterprises intrigue. The plot-driven storylines aren’t cutting it. Most viewers don’t care about Adriana/Alex/NuNoah and their stolen money. Okay, some of us do care about Noah, but that’s not enough to make this fly. "Y&R" also needs some couples with smoking-hot chemistry having super-sexy encounters and love scenes that aren't completely left to the imagination. Characters 'going upstairs' or clutching blankets to their chests 'afterward' is lame. Passion please!

    You can do this!
    Peppy Avery solving all Nick’s little issues for him is annoying – how on earth did he ever manage to run Restless Style or Newman Enterprises without her? The impending arrival of her presumed-dead ex-lover, Dylan McAvoy, is definitely interesting, and will certainly send Avery into a tailspin. I’m sure there will be tons of cupcakes baked.

    You can’t quit me.
    Adriana, so far, is rather unlikable - your typical manipulative user chick. Noah obviously got the knight-in-shining-armor gene from Nick. It would be great if he weren’t a pushover in this. As for Detective Alex, he’s getting annoying with his hovering and threatening. There’s obviously more going on with him and Adriana and this money or he would have had a search warrant for the tackhouse last week, and certainly would have busted Chloe and Kevin this week. The Keystone Cops could have busted Chloe and Kevin by now!

    Could affairs be on the horizon in both the Lily/Cane and Michael/Lauren marriages? Tyler and Carmine are both intriguing and sexy guys, but Lily and Lauren don’t seem likely to stray. The flirting has been fairly hot, except Tyler’s too obvious, and Carmine giving parenting advice was weird. Personally, I hope Carmine and Abby heat up again when she returns. Then, put him in Chloe’s orbit.

    Say what? (CBS)
    Birthday baking.
    The marking of Cassie’s birthday tugged at my heartstrings – Sharon looking at the photos more so than the cookie baking and so on.

    Jack and Phyllis – bravo for the raw emotion and realism! These characters have an amazing connection as two friends who care about one another and are capable of being completely, even brutally, honest when necessary.

    Bon voyage...or not.
    Did anyone really think Adam would leave town with Chelsea? Sharon obviously didn’t by the look of surprise on her face when he told her they were leaving that night. Being involved in the corporate intrigue and having Sharon in his orbit is just too much to walk away from.

    Victor’s leak.
    That poor congressman – his daughter’s death and cover-up are smack dab in the middle of Victor Newman’s feud with Jack and Adam. I love watching Victor and Adam play cat and mouse, and hearing Adam tell the person on the phone that his father will never get Newman back was intense. By the way, who has Adam been talking to on the phone? I have to know! As for Nikki – why is she even batting an eyelash at Victor using personal information to bring down Jack? Really?

    New sheriff in town.
    Did Billy really tell Adam, "There's a new sheriff in town?" Cheesy! As for Billy running Newman - I love him - but Jack may have shot himself in the foot putting Billy in Adam’s way. After all, Billy wants to help Victoria return Newman to Victor – despite how Victor degrades him. I don't get this, or Victoria wanting to help her father when he talks to her husband like he’s dirt (or worse). That said, it was quite a 'moment' for Billy when he got to zing Victor by telling him he was running Newman. In the end, Jack may discover he only wants Jabot anyway, but in the meantime, what's your opinion on Billy heading Newman? Let us know by voting in's Y&R Running Newman poll.

    "Sharon says she'll do her best to see that Billy doesn't run Newman into the ground."

    Oh, now I'm totally reassured, thanks Sharon.

    I guess you missed it (because you're not much of a Victoria fan) but Billy said MANY times why he was going to Newman. It isn't to "help" Victoria get Newman back for Victor. It's for Jack. To make sure Jabot isn't rolled into Newman with a merger. Billy wants to save his family's company. Again this was brought up many times his week in conversations between Billy/Victoria.

    Sharon is finished with Nick, he was not there for her when she really needed him. I believe she really loves Adam and wants him to take over Newman Enterprises and get back with her. Billy may be running Newman now, only because he wants to save Jabot from going to Victor, because he knows Jack is in over his head right now. Billy loves Vic, but really hates Victor.

    I LOVED Jack's storyline this week. Fantastic acting by PB and MS. I can't stand (already) Adrianna. I thought there might be fireworks between Alex and Sharon or Phyllis, but now I don't want that since he seems to be a bad guy. And Tyler is definitely a pot-stirrer. Don't care for him too much. Who is running Restless Style? And can we please not have another caper-gone-bad storyline for Kevin? SO tiresome. I want to see more Jill, Katherine, Tucker, Paul (without Christine), and Michael and Lauren. Where are Murphy, Delia, Johnny, and Eden? Not missing Eden, but they need to explain where these folks are. Happy New Year, Candace!

    No Carmine and Lauren! Nikki will remarry Victor despite what she hears. She deserves what she gets if she marries him AGAIN. Chelsea needs to divorce Adam. Is Sharon cured? She hasn't mentioned therpy or medications. Jamie should be starving in the storage locker unless Summer is taking him food. Fenn is evil looking. Good casting if he is mentally disturbed.

    Noah is dumb like father, like son.....Nikki, put a lid on it! You know how Victor is and he is not gonna change... Lily smiles to much at Tyler.....Jack is dumb for trusting Billy....Chelsy should have taken the 10 million from Vic and been gone. Why does Avery always just show up whenever Nick have plans with one of his ex's ? She is gonna sour on his stomach soon. I think she is way worst than Phyllis but just sneakey.

    I'm in total agreement with your rant, Candice. I hope that Lily & Lauren are just enjoying a little attention & flirting & that it doesn't lead to an affair. I too wondered how Nick ever ran a business without Avery,it's a little over the top. Sometimes she mothers him too much. Adam will never be able to break with Newman enterprises or GC. Chels advice to Chloe brought back her past but may just save C & K from some jailtime. Jack & Phyl stole the show this week. Adam & Sharon still have the chemestry.

    I thought Sharon saying she would keep Billy from running Newman into the ground was hilarious.
