Following last week’s revelation to her husband, Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), that Dylan (Steve Burton) is actually Paul’s (Doug Davidson) son and not Ian Ward’s (Ray Wise), Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is nearly at a loss for words as she tells Paul that he’s Dylan’s father just as Dylan walks into the room. Meanwhile, Hillary (Mishael Morgan) is dabbling in a father/son triangle and potential “Who’s The Daddy?” territory with her upcoming nuptials to Neil (Kristoff St. John). Will Devon (Bryton James) be able to stop the wedding?

Finally, a new Billy hits the screen beginning Tuesday, June 24 when Burgess Jenkins takes over the role previously portrayed by David Tom and Billy Miller. Of course, he’s already shirtless bein that it’s summer time. It was only a matter of time…

  • Lauri

    They should bring back Billy Miller, why they ever let him go is beyond me. He was the best!

    • Janice Brown

      I thought he was Prefect Y&R is going down hill why did they let Adam go ? Ok I remember , but he was Damn Good Actor I miss him too

    • XL

      I really agree with you!

  • Jan

    I do not like the new Billy Abbott. Please bring back Billy Miller or I just may have to quit watching the show. Too many character changes really hurts the show. The old Billy had the role down pat and could go head to head with Victor. Listen to the viewers before it is too late.

  • Rhonda S

    It’s almost to late! get rid of that Jill women maybe some will return. Don’t think she’s to well liked

    I’m so sick of reading about King Miller! He has moved on to another soap and the role has been recast. Burgess Jenkins is NOT Billy Miller, he’s a completely different person, with different mannerisms, and acting style. It’s amazing how anyone can hate him after only two episodes. Stop looking for Miller in every guy they hire, because you won’t find him.

    • JayTN

      I don’t have a problem with Burgess Jenkins. I don’t know how old Billy Abbott is supposed to be (soaps have never let a silly little thing like age stand in their way), but Jenkins brings a more “mature” look to the role than David Tom did (or even Billy Miller). I don’t remember Peter Bregman looking so old, until his scene with Jenkins, which made Bregman (Jack) seem so much older than I remember him looking in the past.

      I have never understood the appeal of Billy Miller. I have nothing against him, but people are acting like he’s the best actor that has ever lived. Other than his stints on AMC and Y&R, other than an occasional guest starring role on a primetime show, Miller’s longest acting job was a 7 episode stint on the one season CW series “Ringer” in 2011.

      • Barbara

        That smile! He made the role of Billy really believeable and he nailed with the death of Delia…David Tom looked way too young to be with Victoria…Burgess Jenkins Jenkins doesn’t have the chemistry…When a role is recast, you can pretty much tell right off if it’s going to work

        • JayTN

          Well, that’s just your own opinion. His smile doesn’t do anything for me. Neither does his acting.

          • XL

            I agree. What’s up with the painted facial hair that’s seems to be popular? Jenkins’ painted facial hair comes across ORANGE.

      • debbie

        I agree the newest one sucks. He sure did nail it on the death of Delia

        • XL

          The new Billy is not good looking. Y&R went from bad to worst when Toms left and Jenkins appeared.

      • http://unknown.com Bexx

        I think he does looks older, but definitely not ancient as some may claim. Maybe it’s the peach fuzz, and the current attire they have him wearing on the show? Amelia looks every bit her age, and I think it’s great that she’s working alongside someone who doesn’t look like a school boy. My problem is that people aren’t criticizing Burgess acting, but his aesthetics. People just need to accept it for what it is. It doesn’t matter how many times they change Billy, no one actor will appeal to everyone. They could get DiCaprio to play the part, and people would complain that he’s too short.

  • don

    the new billy is a better for a stitch recast too old to play billy.

  • debbie

    I want Billy Miller back! If we don’t guess all the soaps will go out.

    • JayTN

      Aren’t you being a little over dramatic placing the future of the daytime soap genre on the shoulders of one actor?

  • debbie

    sorry but if people boycott they will just take them all. I have one hour to myself a day Mon Thur Friday. That’s my hour do you know how many people try to take that hour. The emergency network, The President, basketball. The phone too.

  • debbie

    so is the police guy leaving too! cause he’s been on along time too.
