The Young and the Restless Spoilers: Susan Lucci Gets Job Offer But Fans Don't Care - Want Michael Muhney and Billy Miller Rehired

Fans of The Young and the Restless are still having a hard time adjusting to the departure of fan favorites Michael Muhney and Billy Miller, but they’ll have to make do with Susan Lucci. The show’s producer Jill Farren Phelps, perhaps realizing that she’s alienating the show’s fan base by giving them continuously crappy and weak female characters and getting rid of their favorite male actors has given Lucci a fantastic offer. This was reported exclusively by GLOBE Magazine via Celeb Dirty Laundry.

Now, Lucci’s been quite loyal to her flagship show, All My Children, for more than 40 years. She’s won numerous awards, including an Emmy, for her performance on that show. But now that the show’s dead and buried without any chance of revival, Lucci can finally entertain other offers.

It’s a smart move from Phelps. She’s getting a lot of fan heat, but casting Lucci in a strong role would do a lot to fix Jill’s image. Lucci is a big name in the world of daytime soaps, and she has many fans who are willing to follow her anywhere. Plus, The Young and the Restless desperately needs any good press it can get right now.

Fans are still calling for Jill to bring back Michael Muhney and Billy Miller, and a lot of them have explicitly stated that they don’t CARE if Lucci is brought onto the show. Ouch. So much for appeasing the fans, huh, Jill?

Some fans think that Lucci’s too good for the mess that The Young and the Restless has become, and other fans don’t care who’s brought on the show – they just want Michael and Billy back. Most fans have been very vocal about this, and they’ve taken to forums, comment boards, and every outlet they can find to vent their frustration.

Regardless, if there’s one thing all the fans agree upon, it’s that Jill needs to be fired and that someone else needs to be brought on to replace her. They won’t rest until Michael Mihney and Billy Miller are brought back, and if that doesn’t happen, they’ve threatened to quit the show or remain away if they’ve already left. Even if they bring Susan Lucci onto the show, will the ratings bump be enough to weather this storm?

What do you guys think? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

    I agree about Y & R. I want Billy and Michael back. I can’t stand the new Billy. I like the story lines right now. I can maybe deal with a new Adam but the new Billy has got to go!

    1. I’m not a fan of Lucci’s , and I don’t see it working well, if u are trying to pull back your fan base. 2. I’ve Been relatively quiet in this mess that has become of young and the restless. But u know everyone is totally validated in their feelings of amazement that a show as great as y & r would let this happen. Someone please come in and take back our soap from someone as ruthless as Jill. Take ownership of the mistakes made and fix it . Now! Before it’s too late. No one shd be allowed to make such arbitrary and absolute decisions as she has. i Don’t believe MM groped anyone and Billy. M shd be allowed to have other pursuits, as Doug D. Did as Erik Braeden did and numerous others I’ve seen over the years. Losing Michelle S. Too geez.. What the heck has happened here. 3. I’m hoping this is all a bad dream. 4. Oh wth. Is going on with Lily and Cane. . Come on, now. I want a real story line and fast forward thru the sex scenes. . Who cares . !!! Give us meat and potatoes not dessert Or fluff. And wth was that mess with Jill and Colin. . Made up scenes from yesteryear geez. I Love to see flashbacks to 30 years ago. That works well for this soap with its long term actors and actresses. Makes this soap very unique.

    For Susan Lucci being on the Y&R is pointless. Jill Farren Phelps should do what is necessary. Hire back Michael Muhney as Adam on the Y&R without him on there the show will suck. If Michael Muhney can’t make it back as Adam then find some good who can resembles him. See if that works. Billy J Miller played the good Billy without him the show will suck. Jill Farren Phelps the real reason why you are running out of ideas for this show is because you don’t have any imagination. What you should do is real simple fire your writers and start over with the new ones. When you do that then lots of people will come back and watch this show. David Tom as Billy cannot act very good and this Abby can’t act very good. This abby overacts and she tries to hard at her lines. She doesn’t haven’t what to take to be the real Abby Newman. You hired this girl who played Abby Newman because you worked with her in Hollywood Heights. This Kelly came from As the world turns. One writer from as the world turns and the other one from General Hospital have no imagination. I speak the truth when it comes to this show. The only way if this show succeeds if these writers are fired and hire some new ones. The new writers for this show will fix up the storylines of what has been broken. Maria Arena Bell was a good writer for this show and she made some of the storylines very good and she doesn’t keep out the storylines to long.

    The classic Y&R in the 90′s and 2000′s were so much better. There was laughter and so much enjoyment with the storylines. But when Jill Farren Phelps and Josh Grifith took over they made this show into a mess. Storylines was going on for months and months. The other writers before these two joined used to wrap up the storylines like in a month or 2. That is a good writer. I think the new writers for this show will change by this fall or so i am not totally sure. But i will see what happens. I miss Billy J Miller as Billy everyday. I miss Michael Muhney on the show everyday. Blaming Michael Muhney as Adam for the hit and run is ridicioulous. Jill Farren Phelps likes old storylines from the past. She doesn’t want to create futuristic storylines for the future. People want to see new storylines and new people. For Jack sticking up for that skank Kelly is ludicioulous. First Kelly slept with Billy and now she is hooking up with Jack. Bad idea. Jack deserves a better woman then that. For Noah giving Courtney a chance is so b.s. It is dumb. Courtney was just another mystery girl like Arianna. I don’t blame Summer for being mad at Courtney. What Courtney did to the others was bad. She doesn’t deserve a second chance. She deserves to be off the show. I never liked Courtney and i knew she was bad news. Noah deserves a better girlfriend then that. If you guys are going to fix up Noah storyline then pair him with someone better who is not a mystery.

    Please, please bring Michael Muhney and Billy Miller back, they were the best…it’s getting so boring. The Y&R is going down the drain, it’s painful to Watch.
    I am sick of Cane and Lily love scenes!
    Boring boring boring! rather sickening! I agree with others.
    Jill Farren Phelps You are killing our favorite soap!!!
    Wake up!!!!

    I don’t care one bit if Susan Lucci comes on board. I WANT MICHAEL MUHNEY ANDD BILLY MILLER BACK.

  • Lorine Molina Sanchez

    I don’t think it will bump the ratings, sure some fans may follow Susan, but more than likely it will fade. And once again Jill P will be faced with the same. MM and Billy brought alot to that show. I personally won’t be happy until Michael and Billy are back. Especially Michael Muhney. He was the star of that show, right along with his dad, Victor Newman.

  • Njae2000

    BRING BACK MICHAEL MUHNEY!!!!
