    Thank you CBS!

  • Fred

    With all of the top talent leaving Y&R, I won’t be watching after Jan 30th after Michael Muhney’s and Billy miller’s departures. I think both actors were treated horribly by CBS. Especially MM with the smear campaign being waged against him by CBS, so I will boycott all CBS programming as well.

  • Fred

    Boycotting CBS for the shameful smear campaign waged against the incredibly talented Michael Muhney.

    • Alex

      I’ve been boycotting CBS since they canceled ATWT and GL, with the only exception of Y&R and B&B! And all my friends and family members are doing the same!

    • Bexx

      I really wish you people would just go, and stop making noise before you get to the door.

      • Fred

        Bexx, every article where I poat a comment you reply to me with a Nasty comment. Last I heard, it was a free country and ppl are allowed free speech. If you have a problem with that perhaps a communist country might suit you better.

        • Bexx

          That’s a lie! I’ve ignored you quite a few times. But how was my comment to you nasty? I’m just trying to ease you gently through the door, because I’ve noticed you’re having some difficulties.

          No Youtube in the communist countries, no thanks.

          • Spot2

            seems like you and only a handful of others will still be watching Y&R shortly. Good luck with that. The rest of us, out here in the real world, will walk away from Y&R and take the advertising $s with us.

          • Bexx

            Handful? The save Muhney Facebook page has just a little over 3k likes, and the petition has only 9k signatures. Y&R when it’s on a good run has over 5 million viewers.

            People who live in the real world know that threats of boycott never work. Just ask those who threatened to stop watching ABC when Burton left, and he gave 20 years of his life to GH.

          • Spot2

            oh Bexx, I feel sorry for you. You think that Facebook likes are a true indication of how people really think out here in the real world. Call me when you’re over 21.

          • Bexx

            And internet comments are not a true representation of the entire Y&R fanbase. Call me when you wake up from your delusion that millions of people will tune out due to one fired actor.

  • PatF

    This is great news for the loyal YR fans. Three years shows great confidence in the brand, and gives more than enough time to fix some of the things that aren’t working.
    CBS does have an awesome Daytime lineup, and this will more than solidify their hold on the #1 spot.
    First up…hoping that Phelps is let go soon. And now that I know I have three years in which it can happen, I’m good.
    As for all the posters that claim they stopped watching when Stafford left, Delia was killed, or will when Miller or MM are done, I’m sure you are as excited as the rest of us. The show NEVER has been about one character anyway. I was saddened when Jamie Lynn Bauer left, so I know how you feel. And that was over 30 years ago.

    • Bexx

      Great! I’m also hoping Phelps is out the door before the end of the year, will give us plenty of time to turn things around. After the 30th Muhney fans are suppose to care no more, so it should be a pleasant atmosphere from then on.

  • Alex

    “THE TALK … is even in women 18-49 (0.7/04)”

    Gosh, could it get any worse? ATWT had much better ratings even in its last year when ratings were the lowest and GH is drawing DOUBLE the numbers in the women 18-49 key demo (1.4 season average so far), both in the same time slot!

    Who do CBS marketing people think they’re fooling with their ridiculous spins?

    Advertisers know that soaps are drawing the best ratings in the key demos BY FAR!

    • Bexx

      How many aliases do you have?

    • PatF

      But the Talk is so much cheaper to produce. While its 18-49 rating IS lower than ATWT in its last year. ATWT was ranked LAST in that demo by the time it went off the air (.9 rating) out of the 7 soaps on the air. AND The Talk is pulling in more households by about 200,000.
      I loved ATWT and it shouldn’t have been cancelled, but neither should a lot of the soaps that were at their time…AW, OLTL. I think today CBS, NBC, and ABC will think a little harder before making that same call.

      • Alex

        Only that advertisers don’t care how cheap a show is (cheap isn’t always good or effective) – they need the best numbers in the key sales demos!

        And soaps are by far better than these replacement shows!

        So, in this case, quality pays off!

        At one point advertisers are going to demand that the networks do the right thing: give us more soaps again!

        • Abel E. Jimenez

          I’d like to believe that, but soaps are expensive to produce and thus the networks and advertisers are more interested in saving money, that’s why there’s Garbage like THE CHEW and THE TALK in Daytime and AMERICAN IDOL and TOP MODEL in Primetime. It sucks, but it’s reality or in the case of these dumb shows, Scripted Reality.

    • Spot2

      The Talk may be the worst chat show on TV, ever.

  • Lydia Torres

    It all sounds good,,,,,,,,,better if the bold n the beautiful would air for 1 hour.

    • Abel E. Jimenez

      Bradley Bell will never allow it to happen, when CBS cancelled GUIDING LIGHT, they were hoping that Bradley Bell would extend B&B to an hour, he said no because of the Italian audience it was attracting and didn’t want to mess up their base by extending the show. Plus, the shorter the show, the smaller the cast they can post and keep the stories at a quick pace.
