Good choices.

And please send Stephen Nichols back to GH. DAYS doesn't deserve him. Besides that there already was a rumor that another Cassadine is coming back to the scene.

I never really cared for the 1st, 2nd or 3rd Eden. It's kind of a pointless character.

This firing should have been the first when the new team came! Tucker should have been gone!

Finally!!!! The new regime fired Eden. Her character return was useless from the getgo.

Hopefully Stephen Nichols will be able to reprise his role on GH or Days. I hate to see anyone lose their job but he never worked as Tucker. Tucker needed to be able to drive the drama between Kay/Jill and be a love interest to Jill....even MAB knew he wasn't the right person to do that. Maybe his exit story will give us back the Katherine and Jill we knew and loved.

It is truly going to be a joyous Christmas. For some of us, anyway!

That's exactly what they did. Cuz he started around Jan./Feb. when he took over for the FIRED William Russ, who in my opinion was a better Tucker, and probably a lot CHEAPER than Stephen Nichols.

Tucker will die leaving all his Newman stocks to his mother and in return she will sell them or give them to Victor and that's how Victor gets Newman back

And they say CBS or Sony don't listen to fans....guess again because they are listening to their fans now and we are getting our wish and my gut is Sony was ready but CBS was giving the directive.

I'm one of the few people who didn't mind Tucker, but i can't say that i'm heartbroken about this departure. Jessica who? I couldn't care less about Eden.

Darlotto99 ...BINGO I think we have a winner...I think you're right...the new team has planned this exit.

After Harmony left, I had no use for Tucker. Kill him and make the winters major players in that town by Devon getting it all. Then let him catch the eye of that gold digger chloe and watch Lily's head explode. But they would never do you this...

Tucker; I was so-so about him, because if the story was right yes. If the story wasn't right eh no! I did like this Eden, and like the first one... Didn't like the last one.. My thing is why is Lane (Lily & Cane) still around... Those are two I want to see gone-

IT"S ABOUT TIME!!!!! They NEVER introduced and developed this character in a well-thought-out manner as was always done under the Bill Bell regime. This was Katherine's long lost son and they never even gave us a meaty story with those two. His character always felt forced onto the canvas. I love Stephen Nichols but not in this role. We want STEFAN! Smile

I never really cared for Tucker. I wish they would have made the character more like a Dan Scott ( one tree hill ). And they should get Paul johansson to play him just because I miss seeing him on my screen each week Smile Y&R could have used a powerful, confident, sexy, younger ( 40's ) new business mogul rather than the dull, boring, bad haired Tucker we were given. Even someone similar to Bill Spencer would have been a good idea.

I'm guessing that it would be next to impossible now to re-write previous storylines and make him turn out not to be Katherine's son afterall. But that's what I would like. Either that or for him to meet his heavenly maker.

SoapArmageddon ...I was wondering the same thing that Tucker will die and possibly Katherine hadn't made peace with him which could cause Katherine to start drinking again opening up new story for Jill at the same time. I'm not sure if they would do a murder story after all the disastrous stories MAB put the audience through during her nightmare. They could but not sure.

harlee490, it's quite possible now that Stephen Nichols is out that Jess may stick around longer than originally planned.

Well, this is no surprise. I waited these two firings to come sooner. Can't imagine why Eden was still on the payroll whe she was never even seen.

Stephen Nichols is welcomed back to GH as far as I'm concerned Smile

Stephen was wonderful as Tucker and I've loved him with his tv mom Katherine. He and Genie Francis had a wonderful chemistry and a backstory,a history that I for one was waiting to see come to fusion until Genie was fired. What a waste of two great talents. I would love,love,love it if he returned to GH and bring Genie with him they could be a force to reckon with as Tony Geary has recently stated the L&L thing for him is boring and doesn't add to his character,he wants to continue playing a dark Luke - please!!! Laura should of never gone back to Luke and let Stefan go,this opens the door to put them back together as it should be!

I actually didn't mind either actor. Tucker was a d-bag of the highest order, but I thought Nichols was one of the few--maybe the only--big names that MAB brought on that didn't completely choke under the weight of piss poor writing(unlike Genie Francis and Debbi Morgan). As for Eden, I never thought she was that bad and the actress was a helluva lot less irritating than April Nardini from Gilmore Girls. Maybe with those two off the payroll we can give Marcy Rylan back her contract?

Where are all the callouts for this show hiring all NEW faces, changing direction on story at the drop of the hat... I mean NOW Chelsea and Adam are over?!... and still NO dynamic amazing new story to make me want to watch.

Jack is now wanting to fold JABOT into NEWMAN... a company he doesn't OWN but just has enough stock and people voting to keep him in charge?!! It's the same old dumb crap Maria was writing. Victor will come out on top.

THen you have Nikki totally forgetting about Jack and his surgery and JUMPING on the TGVN bandwagon!

THe retread of Billy and Victoria's marriage is great but honestly, just have her stand up to her dad and go work for Jack.

There is nothing exciting happening. I have a feeling that the age gap on this show will divert from generational to young kids and I will stop watching altogether.

RATINGS are down as well.

Perhaps this firing (Stephen Nichols) was the firing that Nelson Branco (still can't stand that idiot) was referring to a month or so back. Letting Jessica Heap go was a smart move. She was rarely used and really had chemistry what so ever with Blake Hood (Kyle). So, perhaps she'll head back to the Ashram and perhaps find her deadbeat Dad.

This was a totally idiotic move and shows that the powers that be over at Y&R have absolutely NO clue about what they're doing. SN is an outstanding actor and these fools wasted his immense talents so badly that it's ridiculous. At least now I don't have to waste my time watching.

Great news for Days fans (if they are smart and take him back). I think Darnell Williams will be next to go and then he can come back to AMC with Debbie Morgan when PP brings it online.

Thanks God!! Take your sunglasses and hit the road and don't come back no more no more. I can't stand the actor in any role. I hated Steve Johnson and was so pissed when he was hired on here. I thoroughly enjoyed Russo as Tucker and he and Jess had an amazing chemistry.

I always liked Stephen Nichols, a sexy older guy. Unfortunately, AGAIN, the writing for the character was just not good. They should have done more with him , and his mother issues. That whole story with him and Harmony and Devon was just awful. I have no interest in the younger set on the show, find them boring. They are adding too many new characters at once.
