Josh has been still quietly making changes in the writers department of Y&R. Wink

Marla Kanelos was Maria's Associate head writer/breakdown writer has been shown the door. Lisa Seidman, is replacement who returns for her second stint with “Y&R”, she worked with Josh the first stint.

Brent Boyd, is the show’s new script editor replacing Beth Milstein. This is music to my ears. The leftover of MAB hacks are still leaving the building.

I love it...how about all of you, are you happy? Smile

However folks, don't get too

However folks, don't get too excited. Maria Arena Bell, Scott Hamner's names still appear in the list of writers when today's episode begins. HOWEVER, Josh Griffith is listed first and then everyone else follows behind him. Obviously, Hogan Sheffer's name is still in the credits but I don't expect his name to remain in the list of writers after his contract expires in November.

Here is the opening 25 seconds of the show that lists all of the writers:

Lisa Seidman did alot of

Lisa Seidman did alot of primetime writing - Dallas (the original) among others. Not familiar with Boyd. I hope he keeps Janice. She is like the only one left from when Kay and Jack were writing the show.

OH I didn't know that

OH I didn't know that Ryan-Scott. If you look at the writing credits (it's starting w\Stephanie I'm starting to cry already and will be crying until December) Brad, Kay, & Rex. Rex is Bill's protege as Kay and worked under Bill for years. Brad please send one to Y&R for history sake. I know with Brad, Kay & Rex Stephanie's story will be excellent.

Why are Maria and Scott still

Why are Maria and Scott still being credited? She's gone! Let her go! We don't want any sign of her anymore.

I believe it will probably

I believe it will probably show MAB & cronies for a couple of weeks. This probably when Josh picked the story and continued it on in tweaking the story to lead into his stories ALONE. I'm not worried it will go away, MAB & cronies has no heads! Wink

I will ONLY be happy once

I will ONLY be happy once Hogan is gone. I suspect he was writing a lot of the crap we saw. He never belonged on this show.

@Harlee: I ma happy to see

@Harlee: I ma happy to see the changes going on behind the scenes. This is a good sign for Y&R. If he could find a way to bring on Sally Sussman Morina i'd be extra happy. With her history with the show it would be a good fit.

@David...oh yes she got she

@David...oh yes she got she was personally hired by Bill back in mid-eighties as storyline consultant I remember her in the credits. I had to look it up to make sure I was remember correctly from '83-'87. She would be a good addition but you think she would go back to Y&R not being HW?

@Harlee: Yes, she would. She

@Harlee: Yes, she would. She was also the consultant during the LML days and prior to her hiring. She is famous for creating the Phick affair, which became so popular on the show.

Yes, Sally is really good.

Yes, Sally is really good. Generations was a good show and I liked the two years of Days where she was HW after JER left to create Passions.

I would cry if I saw Kay

I would cry if I saw Kay Alden's name in the Y&R credits again. LML never should have been allowed to can her or Jack Smith. That was total bullshit.

I'd be crying like a baby too.

Just another reason why LML was the worst thing to ever happen to Y and R.

So far...

It was nice to see new names

It was nice to see new names in the opening credits today - looking forward to see more of them down the line.
