    Ghost gone?

    Same day update:

    Jerry Douglas saw's article on Twitter and tweeted us to confirm that he is definitely not with "Y&R" any longer. He posted:

    Original article March 3:

    It appears as though Jerry Douglas' days as Genoa City's John Abbott may have finally come to an end. Inside information indicates that Douglas is no longer with "Y&R," where he had still been making appearances as John's ghost once or twice a month until as recently as December 2013. As for the reason, a post on Douglas' official fan page on Facebook suggests that the writers have decided not to include the John Abbott character in future scripts. Pam Rogers, who does social media on Douglas' behalf, posted the following on January 30, "Some very sad news for fans of Jerry Douglas, 'John Abbott,' on 'The Y&R'! The writers do not want to write for the character of 'John' anymore. Jerry agreed to do a show at least once a month, and that has not been happening." will keep readers updated with any further information that becomes available.

    for the love of god, when will Sharon tell Nick about summer, this has been dragging on too long. Also, please hook Devon and Hillary up, they would make a lovely coouple and get Esmeralda off the show all together.

    Well, another fine actor is gone. I have stopped watching the show; the scenes are choppy, the story lines have no continuity to them which makes it easy to forget what the hey is going on. It appears that the original cast will soon be gone and what was once a good show, entertaining,edgy,and fun to watch, will be no more. CBS/Sony and the JFP have ruined this show.

    My thing is Noah how dumb can you be? Courtney is a Under Cover Cop, a good Cop, she has a job to do & for him acting like a fool asking she has to carry it always, "you damn right, carry her Gun, she may have to save his behind one day.I just didn't like him doing that to her, she is just doing her job, so why can't he date a Cop? especially an Under Cover Cop.He needs to be more supportive.

    Yeah John has played out now, time to just go away & enjoy your real life, Sharon's secret is just not gonna happen, everyone else has gotten caught,I'll be so happy when she is found out, it's been to long now! something has got to happen, hope Devon see's Esmeralda for what she is, "a gold digger", I hope things backfires on her, don't drag this out, let Devon & Hilary get together, but it seems like Neil is falling to fast to soon it seems that way" I agree with all you have said (mama Joyce)

    John never should have been killed off in the first place. Bad move years ago.
