The Young and the Restless David Tom Fails as Billy Abbott: Bring Back Billy Miller Before It's Too Late

The Young and the Restless fans took to social media today after David Tom’s scenes as Billy Abbott on the popular CBS soap, to voice their opinions on the recent cast change. Recently Y&R executive producer Jill Farren Phelps shocked fans by firing fan-favorite Billy Miller, and re-casting Y&R alum David Tom as the character Billy Abbott.

A large chunk of  Y&R fans have already jumped ship and stopped watching the soap amid all of the recent cast firings and behind the scenes drama (courtesy of EP Jill Farren Phelps). Some of the loyal Y&R fans that have kept tuning in, despite the Billy Miller and Michael Muhney drama, are struggling while they watch David Tom butcher the role of Billy Abbott.

Some heated scenes on The Young and the Restless today featuring David Tom in his new role as Billy Abbott arguing with Victor Newman sent fans into an uproar. Billy confronting Victor over keeping Adam’s involvement in Delia’s death a secret should have been an intense scene, but fans think David Tom’s portrayal of Billy Abbott ruined the scene.

Y&R fans took to Facebook to voice their disgust over David Tom’s scenes with Victor Newman today. On Soap Opera Spy, a Facebook group dedicated to today’s soaps, fans ranted about David Tom’s appearance on Young and the Restless today. One fan even stated, “Y&R should have given Billy Miller what he required to keep being Billy…it had never been an issue in the past. They are killing their own show.

So, Y&R fans, were you as disappointed in David Tom’s scenes with Victor Newman today as we are? Or, do you think David Tom is doing a good job playing the role of Billy Abbott?

    I hate the new Billy he SUCKS!!! He is so annoying and he has no chemistry with anyone. I cant stand watching him thank god for fast forward on my DVR. Y& R needs to get Billy back. I also wish they would get rid of Avery. I also cant stand looking at her and her Claymation face. She has no chemistry with Dylan. Chelsea had way more chemistry with him and they looked much better together. The people making these decisions for Y & R need stop and listen to the fans or they are going fail.

    David Tom was progressing in the role, finding his footing, he should have been given a fighting chance. I loved Billy Miller in the role. After years and years he captured Billy Abbott to perfection and I miss his portrayal. He could have stayed. He chose not to. So Y and R fans get a grip and embrace change. New Jack, new Jill, new Victoria, new, new new.

    Please give billy miller whatever he wants , just get him back. Also,get michael muney back. They were the best part of the show.Lori,40 year viewer.

    Billy miller is by far the best man for the role! David Tom is unbelievable as the character and doesn’t have the intensity required to be Billy up against Victor. Bring Billy Miller back!

  • Sophia

    He sucked then too!

  • Rockin Robin

    I feel is does not matter who plays Billy. If it is not BILLY MILLER it just sucks. He is the only Billy I will ever accept. Please bring him back.

  • Patte50

    I think it’s the writers and the character that is failing not the actor!! Please bring David Tom back!!! Stich is no good for Victoria!!!
