I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later, right? After weeks of dishing the daily dirt on The Young and the Restless the discussion finally popped up on radio via The Bill Feingold Show with Kevin Holmes. Apparently Bill and Kevin both tune into the show daily and seemed to be just as appalled by the sudden casting changes as CDL’s readers are. They conceded that Michael Muhney’s firing looks more than a little suspicious and watching a new actor, David Tom, replace Billy Miller and come be-bopping through the door as Billy Abbott was a total jolt to the system.
Jill Farren Phelps’ soap killer reputation has now reached the airwaves with Bill and Kevin both rallying for a boycott of the show as well as a change in CBS’ upper offices. It seems that David Tom isn’t exactly a welcome addition to the show just yet in spite of winning an Emmy for the role during his last stint on Y&R ten years ago. No one wanted to see Billy Miller leave the show and so of course David has his work cut out for him now, but will he eventually be accepted?
Bill and Kevin also questioned whether or not Phyllis is on her way back to Genoa City and if so who will be portraying her. Do you think Jill is trying to recast the role infamously played by Michelle Stafford? Tell us your thoughts on that but in the meantime, take a listen to the interview clip below. Y&R’s strong and vocal fan base is the reason why these discussions are even happening so don’t doubt for a minute just how much influence you guys really have!
