Used to love watching the Young and Restless, now am sick of Victor and the fact that the show is the poster child for VD.  The writting on the show is not near as good as it the past and now I do not watch it.

I love Y&R, as many of you I have watched it from the beginning. It has been my favorite over the years and It's still the only one for me! One of the story lines I remember best was when the actress, that plays Lauren was buried alive by a stalker and Paul had to rescue her! Brilliant storyline! Great job Y&R!  I'll keep watching!

Y & R is definitely my favorite soap of ALL time. I have been a loyal watcher since the first. I have seen so many actors come & go and the last year has brought several disappointments.

I liked Ashley & Tucker together.

I hope Avery chose's Dylan(they are very HOT together).

I know Adam & Sharon have ALL this chemistry but could you please take it away from both of the.

Adam needs to be with Chelsea and even though she is a mess right now, I still think Sharon & Nick are good together.

Also, go ahead & put Phyllis & Jack together, again..

Please leave Lily & Cane's relationship alone, don't let anyone interfere with it!!!!

Would like to see Neil with someone but I don't like who he is with now. Did Dru really die? It would be a GREAT time to bring her back!!

Last, please let Nikki & Victor stay together and I hope the diagnosed MS doesn't play to much into her role.

They are so GREAT together, they remain to give ALL of us a feeling that there is a special someone for us out there!!

Oh, I forgot one couple Lauren & Michael.

Please leave them together & don't let her have an affair on Michael.

Come on Lauren ya'll have been through to much to mess it up !!

I could go on & on  but I will finish for now and hope the writer's will read our comments!!

i have watched this show off and on for the last 20 some years. love it! it's always been one of my faves!

Can someone please tell me the name of the song Nikki plays on the piano?????
Feb 16, 2013 11:19AM
David Hasselhoff wasn't the original Snapper.  William Grey was even sexier than David!!  But, I did enjoy them both .  There have been so many stars coming out of all the Soaps.  Young and the Restless is still the #1 and only for me!!

I have been  a  Day 1- Fan of Y&R. Wishing the cast a huge Congrats. And many Blessings.


I have also been a member of the Y&R internet family, called Toni's Spoilers, where the

most wonderful, considerate folks hang out on the Web.

Love this show I record it every day to watch it when I get home. 
Feb 16, 2013 10:59AM
Are they bringing back Snapper? AKA David Hasselhoff

My best friend got me watching from age 14 and I watched it religiously until I was about 28ish or so.  I've been away from it for too long to probably get back into it but I DO love how just about every major character has stayed with the show for decades...that really speaks well for the producers, writers, crew, just every one.  And seeing that Victor and Nikki, Jack, etc even Katherine are still there makes me feel young still.  I know that's kind of goofy but just how I feel. Congratulations Y&R cast and crew!

Love Y&R and Bold & Beautiful along with Guiding Light which was sadly canceled.

Victor, Adam, Nikki, Michael, Chelsea, Victoria, Billy, Devon, Katherine, Murphy, Mason, Chloe and Kevin are the best!

Avery is great with Dylan.

Mason needs more airtime. Him and Chelsea would be good together.Disappointed Adam and Chelsea broke up.

The show needs more upscale homes, after all most of the characters are wealthy.

The storyline between Lauren and Carmine is excellent.

I can't believe I have watched this show since the very first episode. I record them daily in case I am not home to see them.  I hope this soap continues on for many more years.

I wish Sharon would go away?  You people are commical.  She does not write the story lines.

The soap is fictional people.  Get in touch with reality.

I like watching Y&R, General Hospital and Days of our Lives. Watched the soaps since 1981.
Feb 16, 2013 9:46AM

I wish Sharon would get over Adam and leave him alone so he could be with Chelsea. Love Avery with Dylan more chemistry than with Nick


Feb 16, 2013 9:13AM
Like some of the other comments, I have been watching since the beginning and probably always will. I also agree with another post in that I wish Sharon would go away permanently! I am sick to death of her!
Feb 16, 2013 9:00AM
I love Y & R.  I've been watching it for many years.   I hope the show last another 40 years!!!!
Feb 16, 2013 8:52AM
I am 70yrs.old. I watch Y&R everyday. I love the soap. I have always told everyone that when I die thatI pray that in Heaven that there's a that I can watch my favorite show. Love Love  Love the show.
