    Victor needs to support Niki. Sharron and Nick should get back together. They have a history like Victor and Niki. Sharron's character should change back when she was truly a good person and loved her family

    Here's the thing, I get that not every exit that has happened at Y&R has been due to Jill Farren Phelps or any other power that be. Losing Jeanne was obviously no one's choice, Michelle Stafford I think was genuinely ready to move on but with that, the fans have been virtually slapped in the face but exits that the powers that be had some control over (Billy Miller and Michael Muhney). Whether this is actually the case or not, it feels like JFP and the others are trying to destroy Y&R. I get wanting to bring on new actors and new writers and producers wanting to put their own stamp on the show but this should never be at the fans expense and that is exactly what has happened here. CBS and Sony need to take a serious look at what is going on and what the fans are saying. Of course we are all never going to want the same things ( for example there are those who like some pairings while others hate that pairing) but when there is a grand majority of viewers all essentially saying the same thing, it's time to pay attention and do what the fans want.

    If I'm not mistaken don't the fans make this show what it is. I definitely agree with most of the post. There is no one that can bring Adam Newman to life like Michael Muhney can. Why can't he just go off screen for a while like they did with Melody Scott and Jess Walton. The writers just don' t care about us fans.
    I like to know if we can petition to CBS and Sony. What can we do!

    This is a very bad turn of events that Michael Muhney has been fired. He is a terrific actor and kept our interest for every scene. He was 'Adam'.

    There is way TOO much change at Y&R, and why is that? As many agree, it probably has to do Jill Phelps taking care of her old crony Steve Burton. Taking Crimson Lights from Kevin and giving it to Dylan, making Dylan Nikki's son, give me a break. It doesn't wash with me at all, not believable and is actually silly. It's all to boost up SB. To give him a more permanent role on the show.

    This is deeply insulting to me as an audience member.

    If the way Y&R takes care of their good actors is by throwing them away, firing them a couple days before Christmas, or not taking care of them, like Billy Miller to keep them on the show, then they may not find me tuning in anymore. There are plenty of other good television programs to watch.

    100% agree. I put in a complaint on CBS website, and chose the box for Y&R and added my comments. If everyone does this, our voices could be heard.

    MM should stay, don't know what the deal is WORK IT OUT!
    Maybe you should look at the writers, get some new ones!!!!!
    Victor never changes or gets caught, try that, let's see if he if can really act!!!!
    This show is Tanking!

    I agree with Shinningstar 82

    Several things directed specifically to you Candace: Previously a commenter expressed difficulty with being able to be included in the polls and you expressed a rather flip response in that you were able to get in. I attempted when I read that you had gotten in and I was faced with the same problem as the other commenter and was NOT able to get in to be included, perhaps being flip was out of line

    Then above regarding actors leaving, you may not feel it helps however they should be taken with more respect and substance. We make the soap what it is and should be informed. AND you should not ASSUME that this soap can still come out strong, there has been too much ignoring what we are telling you and it should be heeded, we are trying to tell you that enough is enough! DO NOT TAKE US FOR GRANTED!

    The kiss between Nick and Sharon was disgusting and did not do Nick's role any service, it takes away from the character he has evolved into and makes him an idiot. It also tells us these writers are not evolving at all in their abilities or lack there of.

    This crap with Mason and Devon's ID is unrealistic and stupid, him getting arrested, come on! Hillary and Devon, stupid!

    Get on with this music box garbage please!

    Billy and this Kelly woman, so tired of this

    Kyle and his crap, so tired of this!

    Michael and Lauren and these stupid lies, come on, lets get this unbelievable crap over with. Fen and his part is so dumb. Noah's girlfriend and her storyline is just such sucking!

    Adam obviously did not hit the girl, how much are you going to bleed this! Sharon should be caught and over with instead of giving advice to EVERYONE, and then you throw Cassie back in again, what crap! Either get a replacement for Phyllis and wake her up, or have her come out of it and tell and then stay there with her son, but end this! And now you are going to have Summer drugging?? Come on!

    Give us viewers some respect and a break!

    Thanks for the thought-provoking comments, everyone.

    Realitysaneness - very sorry my response regarding the poll seemed flip, as it certainly was not intended to be. I went in the front end to vote as a reader and it worked. There were no other complaints posted, and votes were registering steadily. Thought perhaps it was a momentary glitch.

    As for assuming the show can come back stronger, it was wasn't really an assumption - more an optimistic opinion as both a fan, and as someone who reports on soaps.

    Thanks for reading! Candace.
