Jack Abbott on Today's Young and Restless: "What is Going on With My Company?!"






Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) and Co. have literally been jazzing things up at Jabot since taking the helm. The changes they've made won't sit too well with majority shareholder Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) today on The Young and the Restless. Sneak a peek at Ol' Frownin' Jack's reaction to the new and improved Jabot Cosmetics after the jump!

Since all of The Winters Clan is there because of Neil, let's hope Neil doesn't quit tomorrow. That would be a quick good-bye for Tyler, Lily, and maybe Cane.

Anything, though, that gets the focus off of boo-hoo Sharon is a good thing.

Hmmm. Says Jack-"What is going on with my company?" I might add what is going on with Y&R? I am sincerely happy for those who have seen improvement in the show. And yes, there have been some definite visual and musical differences that have enhanced areas that seemed to be falling by the wayside. I'm glad to see some new faces but there are still too many cast members and as for stories, I'm just not finding much to latch on to. I really want this show to suceed, but I'm not sure this pair heading up the new regime are the ones to do it. And yes, full disclosure, I am not a fan of JFP. After her time on GH, there was so much damage. I'm still squeamish as to where she's headed with Y&R. But that's me... Innocent

And yes...

The show is somewhat boring. Who wants only character development? Not me. I want some action to happen. A stalker, a dopple-ganger, a murder mystery. An organized crime family would be a big plus, too.

For example, how is Sharon developing exactly? That she is bi-polar, and now everything is all nicey. No, she is still 'needy' Sharon, busting up Newman marriages.

Or Avery and Nick? Nick wants that Sommers smell, just like Sharon likes that Newman 'touch'. So, so much for character development.

Jill sleeping with Tucker on a lark? This is character development?

I know, Neil is not wearing a tie all of the time...

I need Patty back on the scene ASAP.

I don't like Cane's hair. He needs that short choppy hair back. Random thought.

Somewhat? The damn thing puts me to sleep! I feel like every storyline is trying to regroup the characters and get all their eggs in a row... yet nothing ever seems to happen. The flood of newbies is exhausting. I don't care about a single one of them. And if I want to watch a cooking show, I'll watch The Chew (which I NEVER would). I don't need to see Avery cooking something every damn day like it makes for fascinating television. It's does NOT!

Maybe I've gotten too spoiled by GH's fast, new, action-packed pace. Or maybe I got too used to MAB's can't-look-away-train-wreck story lines. Either way, I too cannot find a thing to latch onto here.

I noticed Leslie's brother is sniffing round "that fine thang Lily"..

and my God, did Tucker look like death warmed over today?

Show is FAR From boring folks. I see and feel so much negativity here on the boards and it has been less than two months since MAB left the scene.

Happy Holidays!!

Damn--I haven't seen the show yet but I can't wait, LOL! Maybe one night with Jill was just too much for him.

I am enjoying the new Y&R. I like the character development and where the stories are going. I had to post because I've been reading this site for a while now and I mostly see comments of negativity and criticism on here. I don't know what it takes to make viewers happy, but I feel some people will never be satisfied! I've watched Y&R since I was in my teens in the 80s and felt the last three years or so have been some of the weakest I can remember... But I kept watching.

Perhaps I am in the minority here, but I prefer strong character development and interesting "fleshed out" stories over continuous fast moving, silly and annoying story lines with crazy people coming out of nowhere and doing nonsensical things. I feel we are finally getting to know some of the characters again. Please, people, give the new regime some time!

The show is gotten tired and General Hospital is good again time to switch shows again because JFP will destroy this show like she did GH.

I feel as though the Newmans and the Abbotts are the only ones with the watchable storylines. I really like Sharon's recovery (hopefully) from bi-polar and how that will play out with her exes. I'm also into Jack's pill popping, although I think they made his descent into addiction too obvious and a bit too fast. And syPhyllis is on the back burner for a little bit - THANK GOD.

As for the Fishers, Winters, and hell, even the Chancellors - I'm not sure what their point on the show is anymore. I love that Jill's back, but aside from sleeping with Tucker (whose days are apparently numbered), what has she done? Get her back in Jabot, sparring (or sleeping) with Jack. Have her bicker with Katherine over CI. The point is, find a way to integrate them into the storylines.

I agree that there needs to be some "story-driven" plots (maybe 1), but keep in mind that Vicki just got kidnapped. Okay, that storyline was poorly done. But we'll get another one.

I thought it was a great show. Matter of fact, I am liking the show much better now. Neil Winters was on 4 days out of the week. And it wasn't just fluff or filler either. I felt like something was happening. I am in shock.

I enjoyed Jack's story and the far reaching consequences on the entire canvas. They are tied together niceley. I think that JG is weaving a nice story.

Side Note: I loved seeing Neil go toe to toe with jack. He hasn't done that in...ever I don't think.

Did I ask you if you were going to change stations? GH right now is light years ahead of this travesty they call a show. This is the reason why soaps are getting canceled.

We did. We did. We got used to MAB's outlandish story-lines. From Genevieve standing on top of her balcony almost letting go of Colin, to Patty putting a slug in Jack, it was good times.

Now the highlight is watching 'paint dry' Sharon and her angst about 'burning down the house'. Or Avery trying to steal Phyllis's life.

And yes, the Show needs a Strip Club. A new Eden (although I like the one who is leaving) getting body painted on stage, the new Adrianna. And a lot of you would like to see Carmine take it all off, with a follow up dance by Tyler. This would blend easily with an organized crime story-line ( a serious one, not like Angelo and Angelina).

Frankly, after standing by the show through the MAB years, I was sooooooo hoping for something better with the New Powers that be. It ain't happened. In fact, other than some new set, etc. the show is worse. This viewer is no longer interested. Period end.

Like you, I could hardly wait to see MAB gone, but I definitely do not see any improvement. Too much Avery cooking and just dull storylines otherwise. They need to have Victor get a life and move on to something bigger and better than Newman Enterprises. This is all DULLSVILLE, and JABOT is JACK'S company and do any of the Winters clan have any business sense, besides NEIL?

Me too! Just alot of different stories going no where. Don't think I like these new writers. Gave them a chance but now, have not watched for nearly 6 weeks. or more..go to spoilers and they will give me the info I want and nothing is going at all for me. Find out about Sharon/Adam/Chelsea from there. Too many new charactors.

@hey mon: According to the ratings not enough people got use to her writing. So you were in a distinct minority there.

David ...I did and I loved that series. Y&R should make her Leslie and her brother's mother.!

Still so much negativity. Most of you weren't happy with Maria's storytelling, and now you are already complaining about Josh's writing. What do you want exactly?

My biggest complaint is the rapid transition from the old sets and music, to almost exclusively the new ones. Can we eat somewhere else besides BLVD? Where that wonderful Y and R score?

But as for the character development, it was sorely needed. People aren't jumping in bed, getting shot, wearing those damn orange jail suits, such a relief to see real people with real issues. And no, we don't have poisoned water in Genoa City. Keep in that Port.

My main complaint with the new regime is the unhealthy focus on certain characters (I don't need to see Avery EVERY SINGLE DAY, and COOKING? They are coddling the ACTRESS, who is a food blogger and COOK). Why does that aspect of her life have to be brought into Y&R??

Jamie/Fen/Summer--don't care about any of them. They can't carry story.

Winters are now getting too MUCH airtime (yeah, I said it). Lily and Devon at Jabot? A complete JOKE.

The only s/l's that are interesting are Crazy Fen. Hopefully this kid will turn out to be like dear-old Dad, or Uncle Kevin.

Tyler at Jabot. At least there is some new blood floating around. Make him a stripper ASAP! Let the ratings fly upward for the ladies and the gay men. Or how about this, Jabot's new Men's line, and Tyler is new model! He gets his picture taken daily with his shirt off in his underwear. (I'm being serious)

I am hoping against hope that Nick is going to open a strip club. Somehow Nick doesn't realize that his new 'disguised' stripper is REALLY, Summer!

As far as ratings go, the Show is going to be showing WAY DOWN compared to January 2013 to January 2013. Y&R was scoring 3.5s and 3.6 during January of last year, focusing on Patty Williams and her craziness.

Now all we got is endless debating about Sharon & The Fire.

How's the cocktail hey mon (gin? mentioned on full posts). If you are so unhappy stop moan & bitching quit watching Y&R! Angry It's that simple. You're constant ranting about a strip club, wanting more psychos and MAB is getting tedious. Y&R hasn't been this good in 7 years. Everyone was saying the same thing when Ron took over at GH and GH actually dipped in the ratings for months and yes GH has rebounded.

Paraphrasing as Jamey stated on Y&R "slower pace, sexually driven psychological drama" is Y&R!! It's not GH, Passions, or even DOOL.

Things are starting to gel more now with characters being fleshed out, couples abound, triangles are being built, new blood(s)being infused in story nicely, characters acting as they were, families being written deliciously dysfunctional, old fashion friendships are developing between characters. The novel thing I have been seeing so much more...ROMANCE is everywhere on the canvas...imagine that ROMANCE on a soap so novel! Love There hasn't been the silliness and goofiness of past years but now it's more of true to core of Y&R. JFP & Josh are doing right by Y&R and Bill Bell's legendary stories and how Y&R truly works. The kicker is JFP is proving she knows Y&R isn't GH showing a completely different side of her abilities. She made 2 bad errs with GL granted but she also showed the same side with GL at the time with some amazing storytelling. There are many sites and posters seem happy with Y&R right now but the same old gripes are coming from the usual suspects and they will NEVER give Y&R a chance. They just want Y&R to fail miserably and it's not. Wink The last two days of episodes were EXCELLENT!

Merry Christmas Wink
