RUMOR: Is The Young and the Restless Headed for A MAJOR Change?

Is The Young and the Restless headed for another MAJOR change? Read more here--->>

Could The Young and the Restless be headed for another major behind the scenes change? It could be possible according to Lynda Hirsch, the woman whom daytime TV producers call "the person who knows everything about daytime soaps".

In her latest column, she noted, "It appears "The Young and the Restless" is looking for a new head writer. The show continues to tumble in the ratings. Some actors are said to have developed tics over what the characters are doing. Head writing change always has cast members wondering if they will make the cut. Whoever takes over, they need to repair lots of damage. Head writing a soap is tough; however, when it works, is so rewarding. We aren't just talking about money. From mental illness to pap tests to Alzheimer's, daytime has proven it can educate the audience while entertaining it."

Rumor also recently circulated that former Days of Our Lives head writer, Dena Higley who vacated the show in 2017 met up with Steve Kent. Although no official proof came forward. It is worth noting. Should there be another writing regime change at Y&R, who would you like to see at the helm?


  1. The show seems to be all over the place recently. The writing is inconsistent. The characters are acting out of character. Storylines make no sense. Relationships are being forced that no one wants.

    I believe something needs to change. The writing definately needs to get back to what it was. But, fixing the writing doesn't behave to mean losing characters.

    While there are a few characters that wouldn't be missed if they just left, there are a lot that are needed and can not afford to be tossed.

    So here's hoping a new writing team will bring the show I've loved for so long.

  2. I've always stated that Josh Griffith was NOT the person that TPTB should've hired to be a head writer; he's done the job twice before, and both times did not result positively. So, in all honesty, I've been laughing the entire time, because so-called "fans" wanted him in the position. The problem is that there is zero progressive writing or truly interesting storylines happening on this soap right now.

    Since his new positions, Griffith has been attempting to entice audiences with castings, and they're driving people away, instead. Even the cast are favouriting tweets that are insulting the writing. This whole soap needs a brand-new makeover behind-the-scenes, even though each change seems to rattle this soap into more difficult positions.

    Personally speaking, with Days of Our Lives on hiatus, they really should try and lure Lorraine Broderick out of retirement and bring her in as head writer. Her stint as head at All My Children were wildly success in my eyes, especially in her final stint, despite her knowing it was the end of the soap's run. Despite that, she wrote stories that, had the soap continued, would've genuinely worked out well. She is capable of handling a soap in today's world, instead of keeping it in the past, which is where we've been for the past year.

    I would also welcome the team of Marlene McPherson and Elizabeth Snyder, who wrote for TOLN's All My Children, which I quite enjoyed. I feel as if they weren't given even credit for their handling of Pine Valley in its limited-online format. Not to mention Poulter's time as co-head writer at Days of Our Lives with Darrell Ray Thomas, Jr was one I did enjoy.

    Also, on this note, I do believe Anthony Morina should be demoted back to his previous position as a supervising producer, and they should hire Wendy Riche. While I would prefer Riche at The Bold and the Beautiful, she could and would do wonders at The Young and the Restless; her nine-year run at General Hospital is highly praised, and unlike most other executive producers, she wasn't fired from her position; she chose to leave on her own accord, which shows she isn't one to be fired. Her introduction of social issues in the '90s was fantastic, and if she could be given the same platform, I can assure everyone that she'd do the same in the modern age. TPTB need to wake up and realize smart decisions could be made, and Riche and Broderick could be a powerhouse team.

  3. As s loyal viewer,I find myself turning it off many days. Chance 5us about the only appealing character now. Billy is being ruined, Devon is being ruined, that awful kid story line is so predictable and boring. I want more Victor and Jack Y&R uses the same story lines over and over. They need new blood. And I find it hard to believe you can't find s story line for Cane

  4. 40plus yr viewer. Started watching when I was 15. Never ever have I not tuned in more than a day a week except when on vacation or when Sharon married Adam. A huge Sharon fan that never understood falling in love with the guy that stole your child and let her and nick believe faith was dead. I record every day and watch at night. Not for last year. Maybe a couple times a week and since the holiday season and busier not at all. For over 40 yrs I could not wait to get done with everything so I could go sit down and watch “ my show”. Sad to say it’s not the same. Hoping we can get that fixed.

  5. I have watched the show for many, many years. The storylines are terrible right now. What horrible storylines for Billy, Connor, Devon, phyllis. There already was an evil kid line with Stitch's son. They just keep characters changing partners. Awful. I will keep watching but if it was cancelled I would probably feel relief

  6. Ditto to everything Skipping Stone above wrote. I am not familiar with a couple of the names she (or he) mentioned but the name Lorraine Broderick I know well. She wrote for AMC for about 3 to 4 months at the very end of their run and it was some of the most beautiful dialogue I had ever heard on a soap. The actors elevated their talent because they had something to work with. If anybody should NOT be given the HW position it is Dena Higley (or Hackley because she is a hack of a writer and been FIRED several times before). That should tell you about her ability. I knew Josh Griffith wasn't going to do anything for Y&R because I was watching Days when both he and Higley were HW's over there and both were fired. They turned that soap so dark (literally and figuratively) that I had to stop watching. Please take in to consideration what your viewers tell you. I don't want to see the actors lose their jobs because of hack writers. Do better!!!

  7. It is really awful writing for just about everything and everyone. The SL with Billy is terrible, that stupid gum chew grated my nerves. If tptb want Chelsea with Adam good they deserve each other they’re the same but please end the SL with Conner, sickening. Please just get rid of Theo, trying to keep him on the show pretending to be an Abbott is stupid. He literally serves no purpose at all. That’s a SL they could’ve skipped. I mostly ff over half of the show. Some days I don’t watch it at all.

  8. Please make changes....The Chelsey, Adam and kid can all go...boring and terrible acting...I turn the channel when they come on...they add nothing to THE OUNG AND RESTLESS CAST..period.

    And Theo...his acting sucks...sounds like a robot...and he is so annoying! Turn channel on him too! Boring as hell!

    If those 4 stay on..I will move on...have been watching your show faithfully for over 35 years..and never have had any complaints until these 4!

  9. This comment has been removed by the author.

  10. I don't like them bringing back someone from the dead. Of course they gave her a new name and a different character, but it is still Michelle Morgan. And I'm tried of looking at boring billy.

  11. Don’t care for storylines lately. the Devon storyline is stupid. Cane gone Phyllis trying to put life back in show. Chelsea and horrible Adam (why couldn’t Michael muhney come back instead of this young jerk). Theo storyline is unbelievable and he’s a horrible actor. I heard they’re gonna have Lola have a fling with Theo. Makes no sense. She’s a good girl. Not in her character. I’ve been watching since for like 45 years. It’s now a disappointment.

  12. I've been watching Y&R for years. I had 9 episodes on DVR and deleted ALL OF THEM!!!! The story line with spoiled brat Connor is terrible. Theo is poison. Nate is weak. Billy is going off the rails AGAIN. I'm sorry to say I'm totally bored. Step it up or I'm gonna stop watching and just read the updates.

  13. Please don't put nick and phyllis together.

  14. 1. Michael was fired. He si never coming back
    2. Mark is an amazing Adam and the best thing to happen to the show in a long time!

  15. I began to think Soap Opera has ran it time out. They can't come up good store lines anymore. It is like the story lines in cold storage for now then all of a sudden they will pull old lines out and resurrected it again. The character Phyllis that killed her friend Sasha I don't think it was used a story line. She just continually to be evil and getting away with her behavior. How making the character strong people I am sick of wimps.

  16. So disappointed. Sure looks like Y&R is on its way out. Everyday all we see couples talking,very boring. There just isn't any story that is exciting. Phyllis livin's it up when she is on, her and Nick are comical I just hope it changes soon.

  18. Have watched since the first show. They need to go back to the characters that made the show what it was. Too many new people that serve no purpose. Please bring back the show that I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. Now, I don't really care.

  19. Can't stand the Conner kid storyline. Show more of Christian and Nick together.
