Young and Restless' Sharon Newman in 'The Burning Ranch'

comments





The rumors are true. The Young and the Restless is about to retire one of its most iconic sets — the Newman Ranch. Eric Braeden (Victor) tweeted, teasing the ranch being burned down, but later took his post down. Unfortunately, it was too late. Fans across the Internet had already started buzzing about the fire!

Soap Opera Uncensored's Nelson Branco later confirmed the development on Twitter. Reportedly the sprawling estate Kay Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) sold to Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) way back in the early 80's, will be torched by that whack-o-mess Sharon (Sharon Case)!

The fictional spread won't be rebuilt. Victor and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) will instead move into (Gasp!) a penthouse. This is not right, and it's not okay. Nikki Newman is supposed to be back on that ranch in a chinchilla coat in time for winter! Grrr...

I say I will drink Beer to that Yoryla! Burn down Gloworm! I hate that set and what be fitting is to reopen Colonnade Room with a fresh look and old secrets. Smile

Part of Victor's old penthouse is still being used on Y and R. The window section of Restless Style was used in the old penthouse.

Oh well, we all wanted change & it looks like it's coming. I hope the first thing to go up in flames is that dish of potpourri that been on that coffee table in the ranchs' living/family room for the past 30 years!! Go Sharon.

So is this Newman Raunch (that's on purpose) burning part of MAB's last scripts or is it a creation of the new regime? Just a thought, but it seems like one of many pile-ones to make formerly fucking heroine Sharon Collins officially the evilest evil that ever eviled - MAB's last stand. Either way, I honestly don't care. That set, even though a Y&R staple, has become a hideously fugly representation of the now hideous pairing of Nikki and Victor. I just can't act like these two are the greatest love story ever told anymore after Victor wished Nikki dead instead of Sabrina. Nikki's ass rolling all over the beach in Meh-hee-co crowing "Victorrrrr" like a drunken rooster, and all of their collective fuckery trying to make each other jealous, including Victor marrying Sharon (it seems the whole Newman family has forgotten that Victor pursued Sharon, nobody held that old codgering fool at gunpoint).

I'm not falling for the okie-doke outrage on the sly MTS and EB drumming up on Twitter. So what if Niktor have to live in a penthouse? It worked for Victor when he was married to Ashley, Hope, Diane and I'm sure a bunch I'm forgetting. And Nikki lived at the GCAC when she was with David Dog Chow and even worse with Deacon Sharpe. So...whatever

*Kanye shrug*

OMG!! YES!!!

THIS has bugged me for years now - drives me crazy every time I see the stupid thing in the background. I keep checking it out, expecting to see that at least SOME of the CD (!) selections have changed. Between that, and that creepy puppet holding back the stupid curtain, someone there needs to pay attention to these sets!

@Restless Vixen Is 100% right why is everyone blaming Sharin but letting Dicktor get away with everything? I now understand why Eric Braeden cried when Maria Hackrena Hell was fired, this woman was so far up his ass that she couldn't see that she was destroying the whole show with her Dicktator (and SyPhyllis) hard-on.

Honestly, i'm not sure JG can salvage this mess. I liked his interview, but i now realize that he didn't a say a thing about Dicktator and Syphyllis finally being held responsible for their heinous actions. If the "Victor and Phyllis Always Win Show" is going to continue, i'd have to drop Y&R for good.

I'm really not enjoying any of Y&R's ridiculous storylines right now and everyone's written completely out of character. So I won't complain about anything they get rid of, seeing as how it's impossible to enjoy my fave sets or even my fave actors with this dreadful writing. So hopefully the new writing will make up for it. Although if this counts as a preview of what's to come, it still sounds a little like MAB to have Sharon sinking to yet another new low. And, you know, I can accept that Sharon is completely insane now if that's where they are going. BUT I just hope that unlike MAB, they actually explain WHY Sharon is this crazy now.

where can I find screencaps of the young and restless.

Why are the burning down the Newman Ranch?

Hey, as long as they're not giving Victor and Nikki a room at the GCAC where the only window is in the bathroom, I'm fine. Agree that the ranch is looking tired. More than that, I like the added emphasis on V&N getting a fresh start.

Although I really would have enjoyed seeing what Sharon would have done with the place in her current state...leopard and camo? Zebra and Orla Kiely?

That ranch set was an unfunny joke for decades. My ass has better decor.

When they move to a penthouse, please don't recycle Michael Baldwin's pillars any further! I liked them the first time, but not the 3rd time.

Perhaps the new set will have a lot of built-in monitors so Victor can read his lines without squinting.

Burning the ranch is a stupid stunt story...hopefully Josh can do better than this. No one seems to know, but it appears this actually is a product of the new regime. Not off to a stellar start IMO.

What are people going to do on here once they can't blame Maria for everything they don't like? I can't wait to read the comments starting on 10/12.

It isn't like when Gloria Monty returned to GH in 1991 and destroyed the brownstone with that earthquake because "it took up 3/4 of the studio".
I don't see the point in this.

To me the ranch is special. When I started watching Y&R in the early 90s Nikki was living there with Jack and Nikki was hiding her booze bottles in a walk-in linen closet that was the size of a studio apt.
I'll miss it. Beer

If this is how Josh and Jill are starting, I'm worried.

Poor old Vic can't manage those stairs much longer anyway, he needs something with an elevator. LOL

Then send Sharon over to the Chancellor Mansion, and burn that thing down, too. Jack could use some re-decorating, Sharon are you ready with your matches?

They won't touch the Chancellor mansion simply because it has remained the same set-up since '73. Over the years they have remodeled it during each decade but Katherine's mansion is going nowhere.

I still don't mind the torching of the ranch. I still think that Victor will build another fabulous ranch on the property. I'm all for that in the future with a fresh start for Nikki & Victor.

Frankly I think this is the right move. Quite likely in the mid term what we are gonna see is Nick get the main house at the Ranch once rebuilt into some modern estate and hopefully we won't ever have to see the Tack house again.

While they are at it, rid us of Abby's house, Kevin's house, Neil's apartment and Billy and Victoria's house.

I like this starting fresh thing. Hopefully they follow through with some really cool stuff.
