The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Michael Muhney To Be Replaced By Trevor St. John as Adam Newman - Jill Farren Phelps Decides?

Millions of soap fans tune into The Young and the Restless every week to check out the drama in Genoa City, if the producers filmed the behind-the-scenes drama as well they would probably double their viewers. The Y&R powers that be recently fired fan-favorite Michael Muhney after he was accused of groping another cast member. Fans were outraged after Muhney was told to hit the road, and the general opinion seems to be he was let go under false or exagerated circumstances. Now, it’s time for Muhney’s character Adam Newman to come back to Genoa City, and Newman’s impending return has reopened the can of worms surrounding his dismissal from the show.

The Young and the Restless fans have made it very clear that they don’t want a new actor to play the role of Adam Newman, they want Michael Muhney back. The small group of Y&R fans that have accepted the fact that Michael Muhney will not be returning to The Young and the Restless, have begun campaigning for soap opera alum Trevor St. John to take on the roll. Trevor St. John is known for his role on the cancelled ABC soap One Life To Live, and acquired a legion of devoted fans after his portrayal of Victor Lord Jr. Fans have pointed out that St. John bears a resemblance to Muhney, and his acting style would make it easy for him to fill Muhney’s shoes and take on the role of Adam Newman. He is currently working on a movie, Grief of Others,  but there is no reason he couldn’t take on both projects.

The odds of Jill Farren Phelps casting Trevor St. John are slim to none though, just because of the simple fact that St. John is who the fans want. Jill Farren Phelps seems to not only ignore the Y&R fans’ wishes, it’s almost as if she does the exact opposite of what her devoted viewers want to see. Instead of taking the fans’ desires into consideration, Phelps seems to be set out to prove she is the one in charge of the soap opera, and her decision is final. The big-headed Y&R producer seems to forget that without the fans she wouldn’t have a show to produce.

So, Y&R fans would you like to see Trevor St. John take on the role of Adam Newman? Or have you realized it doesn’t matter what you want because Jill Farren Phelps makes sure she always has the final say? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

    Been watching this show since Nikki was on the pole. I’m a dedicated Y&R fan. #IWANTTHEOLDADAMBACK!!!

  • Shelley

    That question has been asked in every online paper. The answer is NO.

  • JR

    Bring Michael back as Adam, Don’t want anyone else,

  • JR

    Sharon is not stupid, Ok writers have Sharon carry tape recorder and set up video camera to show she is not crazy, Especially after this last episode where Cassie calls her a stupid bitch and says I am real, Cassie would never call her mother a stupid bitch,

  • HB

    I want Michael back as Adam ONLY and want the other Billy back. I don’t even want to watch anymore. It was too much at once and the new Billy is awful!

  • BOWLERAS

    haven’t watched this show since dec when MM was fired will never watch it again unless they bring back MM as Adam.

  • jal

    TSJ is filming in NY how does he film also in LA. Are you nuts. In addition, JFP has said that no one can do other projects while on YR. That is why Billy Miller left. He could not do other projects like he always used to since JFP came a board. Only MM will work as Adam. No one else will be excepted.

  • viewer since the 80′s

    Adam, Michael Muhney needs to stay. Groping, potentially Victoria (whatever her name is) off scene, or whomever, should not be the detriment of viewers watching y&r. I for one, have been quite irritated by the changes and unjust stupidity of the way in which y&r has played out the recent character of Billy, the Kelly crap, Sharon Case bi-polar persons are not that stupid. Get a grip or another viewer, been watching sine the 80′s, will. Be lost. KEEP ADAM – as give him araise for harrassing for mediocre groppinng…

    • lucile marie..

      GROPPING is certainly sexual harassment, you can justify all you want…it is exactly what the word implies…wake up and stop minimizing the facts by shaming and judging the victim..MM, whatever his indiscretion IS not acceptable…

  • viewer since the 80′s

    Fix my typos while viewing. Groping and will be lost.

  • viewer since the 80′s

    and give him a raise.

  • Carol Joy

    Here is a news flash – fired the witch -Jill Farren Phelps. The show had gotten so lame since she came along. Maybe the fans should stick together and ban watching Y&R till these demands are met!!!

  • Molly

    This Show is making me sick to think someone besides Muhney playing Adam. So many leaving the show! Kevins new wife leaving Y&R also!!! I have watched since it started.

  • Lauryn Sheeha

    Maybe you guys should wait and see how Trevor portrays the role of Adam before you jump to conclusion on how you feel about him. If he was innocent of what he is accused of he would have fought agaist those allegations.

  • Racquel Garnette

    Trevor St John can play Adam Newman on the young and the restless when he is free. But if he has other projects to do then hire someone older to play Adam Newman. Michael Muhney might play a part on General Hospital. Without Adam on the Y&R there is a no show.

  • Susie Pratt

    Please bring Micheal back. I am sure the problem can be solved between the actress he had the problem with. I love Micheal and Victor’s role on the soap. And I would like to know what you all think about Gina Tognoni playing Phyliss?

  • oh-no-she-didnt

    I thought the other Billy was a bad actor until this Billy came back. He stinks!

  • Cj

    After a while everyone on y&r will be replaced and that award they had will go to syfi channel watch and see because better tv is in the B movies

  • Patty Martino Bough

    Michael Muhney is Adam Newman! There can be no other. Everyone knows it. If phelps thinks he can be replaced she is sadly mistaken. David Tom is a nice guy. I have seen him on a talk show but, his acting is not even close to Billy Millers! Michael Muhney made this soap interesting and I couldn’t wait for the next episode. Now, it’s like oh, I taped it but, haven’t had a chance to watch it.

  • Lovey&r

    The fact that Hunter hasn’t sued Adam might mean she’s not telling the truth. This can swing both ways. Were you there to see him grope her? If you weren’t then you don’t know anymore than I do about what has or hasn’t happened. I am not into ruining a person’s career until we have some more facts and not rumor and gossip. If Michael groped her then he should be gone but if this was something used to get rid of Michael that shouldn’t happen either.
