The Young & the Restless: "Where's the Beef Wellington?" edition.

As showrunner Mal Young begins to roll out his own questionable stories, it appears we're still faced with one big problem: NO BEEF !!

Has Traci eaten it all? .. Or did Noah get to it first?

Where are the HOT YOUNG MEN on this less than appetizing soap?

We need more than Beale's Fruit & Veg Stall from Albert Square.

I think Ehrich has blown this Popsicle stand. .. As I recall, he never wanted to sign a contract and was usually recurring, with him only signing some limited contract once when the show knew they needed him for it.

Although, if he's in some kind career free-fall, I suppose he might consider it.

Bisexual Max? .. Bisexual Fen & Carmine would be hawt.

Once a rising Hollywood star Max Ehrich sparks many questions and growing concerns.

Yeah, Thad's still a hunk. He was super-hot about 10 years ago. There was a scene when JT and Victoria had first started seeing each other, and Brad came to JT's loft looking for his wife.

You have to LOL at the fraus who tweet Mal Young 40 times a day with their every thought about Y&R. Do you really think he has time for that shit? He is the EP and headwriter of Y&R. He writes and produces 250 hours of tv a year. IF he is reading all those tweets, then he isn’t spending enough time concentrating on making Y&R the best that it can be. And remember that he’s 2 to 3 months ahead in writing. He’s focused on what is happening in February. Tweeting him today about something that happened on the Thanksgiving episode that you didn’t like is long gone from his mind and will not accomplish anything. Dumb fraus.

OMG the acting was horrid all around in that scene at r34. And that dialogue! Bill Bell was a master at crafting slow-burn storylines, but his dialogue is part of the reason soaps are ridiculed. However, watching that scene you can see why his transition from Brooks/Fosters to Abbotts/Newmans/Williamses was so successful. He kept the tone of the show exactly the same, complete with similarly awful dialogue and original music cues, but with a fresh new set of characters. So he was able to rejuvenate the show, all the while retaining the elements that had made it compelling and successful.

Jack became a womanizer because Dina left them.

Ashley become a fragile, needy, caregiver because Dina left them.

Tracy ate to cover up her insecurities and feeling of abandonment because Dina left them.

Mamie tried to overcompensate for the missing Dina by not taking a switch to Jack, being more firm with Ashley, and turned a blind eye when Tracey got into the sticky buns.

John was insecure in his abilities as a man because Dina left and overcompensated with young women.

Billy is fucked up because Jill is fucked up because Katherine fucked her up. Jill was trying to put her life back together and was with John, but Katherine had to bring back Dina which made Jill insecure and fucked up again.

So to end this little essay the two people that are to blame for everything are Dina and Katherine.

But after Brenda came back, Jack and Jill had their cabin tryst, and Kay and Dina were sniffing around Jill's pregnancy thinking something was up. Also, Dina was making some kind of claim that Jill's marriage to John was invalid, with Dina saying her divorce from John may not have been finalized correctly or something. That proved to not be the case.

TV Guide Magazine: Neither do you. Word is, you're not happy with these strange symptoms Mrs. C is experiencing. Cooper: The writers want you to think it's Alzheimer's and it's driving the audience crazy. It'll turn out to be a benign something or other. But if it was Alzheimer's, I wouldn't have played it. TV Guide Magazine: Meaning you'd have quit the show? Cooper: Absolutely. Nobody wants to see that. Y&R is an hour of escape and relief for people. That's what's kept it on the air 40 years! The audience wants Katherine vibrant. They want to see her kicking ass. I've worked hard for that. There was a barrage of concern as soon as Katherine started forgetting things and misplacing things. Then I got one script where she was supposed to be seen reading a pamphlet about Alzheimer's. [Head writer] Josh Griffith came rushing into my dressing room all breathless, saying, "Don't worry, it's not what you think! It only looks like Katherine has Alzheimer's." I said, "I'm not worried.

Mal gets mixed reviews in the UK.

When EastEnders was having problems in the mid-00's, and EP Louise Beridge quit, the arts and media correspondent at The Observer wrote:

"Others believe that Mal Young, the dynamic head of drama series at the BBC, is the real root of the problem. A demanding and powerful personality, Young first made his name as the co-creator with Phil Redmond of Channel 4's groundbreaking Liverpool-based soap, Brookside .

"'To be honest, one of the most difficult elements of the job of producing EastEnders is dealing with Mal,' said a former writer on the series.

"Young now oversees the content of Holby City as well as EastEnders and is also quietly developing a new, big budget regular drama series for BBC1. Created in the style of Holby City, the latest drama off the production line will concern the relationships between a team of lawyers and the plotlines are already being drawn up behind closed doors. Actors and writers at Elstree are convinced that this new baby has distracted the BBC's drama executives from tending properly to EastEnders .

"'Mal Young rides in every now and then and gives out his ideas, which you have to follow. He is quite scattergun and I think that can be very frustrating,' said a writer on the show who has since left the BBC. 'He was brought in as a populariser and even once appeared in Hello! with his girlfriend. In some ways he is not a very good fit with EastEnders .'

"Tuesday's episode last week attracted the lowest ever ratings in the series' history - in previous eras the show might have expected an audience of around 10 million - only 6.1 million tuned in."


Also, his last attempt at TV in Great Britain, a scripted reality show called 'Desperate Scousewives,' was a flop with both critics and viewers. It was canceled after eight episodes.

btw - I don't think that legal drama The Observer mentions ever saw the light of day.

The Traci/Lauren stories were some of the most relatable things on TV, let alone daytime. Lauren would bully Traci before Bullying became a buzz word. Traci was the fat Abbott sister. She was always in Ashley's shadow. Lauren was jealous of Traci's family life and tortured her. I remember a scene where Lauren was measuring her waist and thighs at the gym Traci was going to to try and lose weight. If you met Beth Maitland in person (the actress who plays Traci) you would think "wow she is a normal sized woman.." because she is. Tracey Bregman (Lauren) is like 4'9" and about 100 pounds. Anyone would look huge next to her. Danny did not fall in love with Tracey. Brad did because she was nice to him and helped him. She took an interest in the Pool boy and helped him to become a man and executive. Sometimes it's not about a size 0.

She probably realizes that she'll be off the show and retired in the near future and her name won't be nearly as well known as it is now especially once Y&R is shut down. Smart move.

Y&R hasn't been able to develop an interesting young male character for years. Adam was the last (and you couldn't really call him young).

They've failed with duds: Fen, Kyle, Reed, Ravi, Zack.

They killed off one of the most interesting younger men (Carmine) and got rid of Travis, who was at least appealing and interesting enough that he could have stuck around - and could have possibly been the first character we met in a new blue collar family.

R425 Thus, the OP question, "Where's the Beef?" .. This show is truly lacking in Prime Grade.

But one thing - Carmine wasn't killed off. While Fenmore was up for his murder, Michael discovered that Carmine was still alive. T he feds had put him in the Witness Protection program for turning state's evidence. Carmine wouldn't return, though, because he was fearful that Womack would have him killed for real, if he learned he was alive. In order to clear Fen, Michael had Carmine make a video holding up a newspaper with the date on in. Once the judge and D.A. Christine saw that, the case against Fen was dropped. But then, a few weeks later Womack was killed, so really, there may not be a reason for Carmine to be in hiding still and he could probably return.

I hope he's found Fen in Arizona for some hot revenge fucking.

R430 That doesn't explain the casting of less-than-stellar younger actors on the show during the last year.

For the newbies under the age of 40, they gave us: Reed, Charlie, and Scott on contract. And Ravi, Zach, and Jordan on heavy recurring.

But I wouldn't call any of these guys soap hunks. And this is supposed to be America's No. 1 Daytime Drama? You'd think Y&R would have their pick of hot young talents who are looking for exposure to around 5 million viewers across combined platforms.

Just take Scott. imho - Viewers should be drooling when he walks into a room shirtless. After all, he's supposed to be the son of sexy Lauren Fenmore and hot Scott Grainger (Peter Barton). Instead, I kind of winced when he came downstairs without his shirt on today.

I'm dating myself, but I remember when Y&R was one of the most provocative shows on daytime filled. So provocative that I was little and my grandma used to make me go outside and play during Y&R. I could watch the other shows with her, but not Y&R because that was grown ups. There was even a time when they were showing guys asses on Y&R. At some point someone made a decision that Y&R was no longer going to be the pretty people soap. It was probably after Bill Bell was gone. Personally, I think that the people over at CBS truly believe that Y&R is number 1 because it is better than the other shows and not because it is a timeslot hit and people are too lazy to change the channel at lunch time. I have often said that the way to save Y&R is in its title. I'm not saying put the old people out to pasture, but they should be supporting the younger and the restless characters or being used to move story for the younger characters.

I counted 7, yes 7 soap opera's in r483's video. And that's just on *one* network. ABC and NBC had soaps then too. Truly the heyday of soaps. I think the advent of cable tv and more working women really heralded the end of the soap era. After the mid-1970's they started dropping show's bit by bit and it's really sad to see how CBS has gone so far down with their daytime offerings. They had 7 shows 50 years ago and now the two they've got left are on their last legs.

replies 490Dec 10, 2017 8:32 AM +00:00

r490, are you being facetious? AW had been spiraling downward since the late 1970s and had cancellation rumors swirling about it for 20 years. The whole NBC daytime lineup fell into disarray in the late '70s. Days was the only show to ever rebound. Besides that, from 1980 on, the NBC daytime lineup struggled, which is putting it kindly.

replies 491Dec 10, 2017 8:37 AM +00:00

90 minutes of Another World killed it. Incredibly stupid, crazy of the network to approve Mad Man Paul Rauch's vision for domination. The show lost TONS of money doing that, ad agencies started to fire back at the rates charged. The solution was TEXAS and we know how shitty that show was.

replies 492Dec 10, 2017 9:42 AM +00:00

It wasn't just the 90-minute expansion. NBC's prime time lineup was really failing, and that definitely impacted the daytime end of things. Add to that ABC daytime's amazing explosion in 1978/1979, and you've got a recipe for low ratings for competing networks. CBS didn't suffer as much, probably because their prime time schedule was on fire. AW really never found its footing again creatively or commercially. Of the other NBC shows, Days was the only one to achieve any sort of success after 1980. Santa Barbara, despite being a critical success, never found a mass audience. Generations and Sunset Beach were forgettable, and Passions was never more than a little cult show. Search for Tomorrow was asked to lead off an already failing lineup when it was moved from CBS to NBC, so that was a misfire from day 1.

Reid’s hair is going to get the women 18-34 and 18-49 demo to watch the show again! SO hot!!!!

It's embarrassing how low the ratings have gotten. This was once the #1 rated daytime drama on TV for decades and now it can barely muster as many viewers as a 227 rerun.

The household numbers are relatively steady, thanks to the nursing home crowd, but the decline in the 18-49 demo is pretty bad. It's almost impossible to reverse that type of steadily downward trajectory. All this talk about Days being cancelled next year, when their demos, which is all advertisers care about, are not that much lower than Y&R's.

Mal Young has SAVED Y&R and he has single handedly revolutionized daytime! Said no one, ever.

Will CLB continue to show up at the studio to take selfies with the cast?

R582 JT and Cane are also linked via JT's wife, Mackenzie, who volunteered to be the surrogate who carried the twins for Cane and Lily.

R562 Jill returns in Monday's 12/18 episode.

R557 I'm wondering if, when Hilary shows up for Christmas with The Abbotts, Dina will think she is "Mamie." The other day Dina thought that businesswoman whom Jack was skyping with was Traci.

Oh God...all the losers, Kate Linder and CLB should have been a real life 'fake' romance for the show. Imagine all the publicity they would get??? At home with Christian and Kate...snuggling in their jammies watching tv, nose to nose in the kitchen. What a missed opportunity!

Why does Reed look like a lesbian?

Who's the slut in the santa costume next to Linder? It looks like Mary Kay Adams, but it can't be.

Is Reed transitioning? He does indeed look like a lesbian.

R594 The woman in the Santa costume is one of the show's production coordinators, Christina Knack. I know she's been around since at least the 90s.

Whatever you think of Reed, he does look like JT's son. Good casting on that count.

Seems more like a Tiger Beat rock 'star.'
