Okay the stuff lately wasn't really good ... but these promos that CBS is releasing lately are - without referring to the show itself - beyond horrible.

Angelica McDaniel, please, your team can do better than this.

Are they advertising a soap opera or a game show? I'm so confused.

Victor and Jack rivals? What an epic twist!

If this is going to end up with Victor winning over Jack AGAIN, then why bother watching? Maybe JFP will have the balls to tell Eric Braedan to kiss her ass and write the Victor vs. Jack story that fans have been waiting for; the one where Jack actually wins and wins BIG.

Soapjunkie88. The new regimes work does not start til Friday. I'm sure we are about to see a big improvement. Even though they are working off Maria Bells current stories its obvious Jack Griffith went in and tweaked the remaining scripts. The actors are starting to sound more realistic. We are starting to see characters conversing in more interesting ways. I think he's doing a nice job of laying down the foundation from which he will build this show back up. It's also clear a new producer is in the house in spite of Maria still being credited at Executive Producer. I think once the writers can wrap up all these meager stories Maria had going and start unveiling their material it's going to get good. I'm excited. Y&R is starting to show small glimmers of hope.

Lame. Predictable. Been there. Done that. Got the t-shirt. Call me when something "intriguing" happens with this storyline.

I wasn't talking storyline. I was simply talking about the style of the promo trailer. It's terrible to promote a soap opera like this. Current storylines completely aside ... CBS should be ashamed to air a promo like this. It's a freakin' joke.

I completely agree. The style of this promo is awful. The announcer's voice and the music sound more like they belong in an ad for American Gladiators or something.

And as for the clips they've selected for this promo, aside from Nikki slapping Tucker, none of it looks too exciting or original. I'm sure I could find clips from the 80's with Jack and Victor taunting each other in the exact same manner. I don't need to "brace myself" for more of that.

soapjunkie - I agree!

The promos are definitely from the new regime, it can be seen from the style. Since the 10.000th episode they have been indeed like gameshow commercials. I loathe the green color on them (what does it even have to do with Y&R??), and the font, etc. And these promos starring Victor in general have to stop! That is NOT the focal point of the week to the viewers.

Even NBC, whose promos are usually kindergarten-style, had an exciting promo this week featuring the return of Kristen DiMera. It wasn't a 100 % but it was 10 times better than this one.

I don't find nothing wrong with the promo. The rivalry is epic.

I just hope that Josh Griffith can really dig deep into the history of the Victor/Jack rivalry and open up some old wounds - their history is just as tempestuous and Jill & Katherine's rivalry!!

Knowing that Jack has a good chunk of Newman stock, I sure would like to see smilin' Jack come out ahead of the Black Knight for once!!

harlee490, I have to ask. At this point in time, how “epic” is the rivalry if it keeps having the same outcome time and time again, which is Victor, comes out on top. When Jack wins, and wins big, then I think we can say it’s truly epic due to it being a more balanced rivalry. I mean for goodness sakes, Jill and Katherine’s historic rivalry was always more balanced than this.

Been there, done that. Not what Y&R needs right now. The focus on 3 men over the age of 60 yrs old.

Should be Kyle vs Noah, fighting over Eden.

I often wonder why Victor doesn't have someone like Traci around to lament whenever he's on one of his Jack vengeance stints.

Non of this is epic anymore, it's just a retread; unless Jack finally wins.

It is epic as far as I'm concern...only under MAB has Victor been the one the always to win their feuds. Bill wrote Victor losing to Jack and visa-versa, it was more balanced. So some will watch and complain and I'll will watch and enjoy. I'm tired of all bashing that goes on about Y&R...some things are completely correct but sometimes it's to bash just to bash because regardless how you slice it Y&R is still on top of ratings that isn't going to change. Now with the new team maybe we will see a much needed balance show.

It's a play on the Football season. I like the promo, it makes Y&R seem current and it could be played during football games etc and still feel seasonal.

Harlee to the rescue! I have to side with Harlee (again). This CAN be a classic Y and R story. I DO hope to see a different outcome as well, but I too don't like all the bashing going on. I hope that some of the issues with the writing are noticed by us as soon as the 12th. Keep in mind that even if Josh has tweaked some of the scripts, these are still Maria's and some have been good. I'm not worried to see changes to the writing, but am a little concerned about "other" changes. TBD...

Jack/Peter Bergman isn't over 60 yet.

Heymon,

Kyle sucks as an actor, his demeanor and voice grate on my nerves too.

Eden? Yawn, boring....

NuNoah, alright as an actor, but really to old for the part, as Robert and Josh are like 8-9 years apart.

They can write young stories, but there is no chemistry between these three, and Fen is atrocious as well.

Summer is the only one I can stomach and they are kicking her to the curb.

harlee490 ... your take on epic may be correct, but Victor has to stop winning all the time and doing so by using means that should send him off to the orange jumpsuit fitter. That of course goes for many others in this quaint little burg.

However, I don't think that most here do bash just for the sake of bashing. We, I, they are simply driven bonkers by much of what we are expected to swallow.

I love the new Summer. MAB had her in short shorts or short skirts all of the time. Ultra yummy. (Should I feel guilty?)
