Now it is time to meet Hilary Curtis played by Mishael Morgan. This sistah will thrown in the mix of the Tyler/Lily/Cane triangle in the making. http://bit.ly/YP16ig

All I got to say is that Victoria Rowell's presence can be felt from far and away! Looks good to me! Now we'll see if she can act on a soap.

I read in Soaps in Depth that one CBS soap was about to recast a veteran character.

This better not be Y and R OR a Dru recast.

I'm fine with them bringing on Tyler's ex.

Does anyone know the scoop on that magazine story? Rumors?

Maybe Ridge?

They made it sound like it was a HUGE recast of some long time vet. Maybe I just misread?

Well, it sure has gotten a lot darker in Genoa City in the past year, and I'm freakin LOVING it.

I don't think its a dru recast. When Tyler was on the other day, talking to Leslie, they had an actual conversation about his ex...and how she is similar to Lily...so I'm pretty sure this is her.

<3 or maybe it's a recast Lily. NOT saying I hate CK, because I'm actually enjoying her more now than I have in about 10 years...but if there's a rumor of a recast...that could be it. But I really think it's Tyler's ex girlfriend...

Maybe she can hook up with Devon...

...and the wording was something like..."and we wonder if the recast is up to the challenge..." or something to that effect.

Sounds like a big recast.

So yeah...could be Lily. (I hope not. And I know I'm in the minority.)

I was thinking maybe Ridge? They said a CBS show, so could be either.

I just don't think I can handle ANY more recasts on Y and R. No more.

@pferrando & Stoney: At

@pferrando & Stoney: At least with much of the show (70%) they are listening to the fans. They still got 30% to go. But I do wonder who this recast could be. Might it be Phillip, Jill's son? Ryan? Maybe Nina?

Oh wait!

Ashley Abbott? They could be recasting Ashley Abbott! Josh always loved her character and was not too happy to see that she had left when came on.

I know he wasn't really a vet, but with Jeanne's passing could it be Tucker?

Another newbie ENOUGH already. They have too many now.

I just hope it is for B and B.

Can't take much more of the new faces or endless recasts.

JFP seems to be very "generic" with her choices.

I like nuNoah, and I think Chavez brings some character to Y and R. But all the others she's brought on look and act "blandly" in my opinion.

If we saw Mason more, I think that might be the only other exception.

Summer, nuKyle, nuAbby, Tyler...there's really nothing that stands out for me with them. Attractive enough, but no "character".

I like Summer. I think NuAbby is doing a pretty good job. she hasn't done much yet. And I like Tyler more now too.

NuKyle I just simply don't like.

Maybe once they have been established I'll be more on board with them.

It's just been so hard having so many new faces at once, they don't stand out at all.

Tyler pales next to Leslie. NuAbby is really nothing like Marcy/Emme, so that's an adjustment. Summer, I like when she's acting more like her Mom.

BUT yes, the worst of the bunch, and the evidence is there in today's performance is NuKyle. He had an opportunity to define himself or make the role his these past couple of days, but it was blah. I was picturing how Blake Hood would have delivered those lines, and it would have been much more fun to watch. He has that character I'm talking about.

@pferrando: I don't care much for Dentures aka Kyle either. His acting performances are just sub-par.

I'm not feeling either recast either; their acting is horrible...I'm not trying to be mean, but the actor who plays new Kyle his chin is very distracting it looks like the McMoon aka McDonald's moon man from the old McDonald's commercial-

There was no need to recast Kyle. BH was doing a decent job. The nuKyle is not impressing me. NuAbby is rather blah, too.

I think recasting Kyle with this guy was a mistake, and I'm having a hard time liking Summer.

I was actually boycotting the show for most of Emme Ryland's time as adult Abby (Chipmunk Boy and the Diane Jenkins fiasco were too much to stomach.Angry), so I really can't compare the new actress' portrayal against Emme's. I kind of like the actress' energy.

I hope the new black girl

I hope the new black girl turns out to be a villainess. We could use a cold-blooded black bitch on the soaps. What if Dru and Olivia had a vindictive younger half-sister that their father had out of wedlock. She could STILL be Tyler's ex. But maybe she'd rather sink her claws into Neil in an attempt to get a taste of the wealthy lifestyle that Dru once enjoyed..or maybe she could target Devon and all that money that Katherine leaves him in her will...hmmm

No more newbies or recasts? So you just want the show to be mired in lousy ratings? How about casting people who will actually draw viewers?

And who are these people you are talking about?

Soap "stars" from other shows?

It doesn't work.

Newbies and recasts DON'T raise the ratings. You know this.

You are right about newbies

You are right about newbies not getting ratings up. It's been decades since any newcomer did. It has to do with casting. The casting has been all the same type - bland cookie-cutter. The Betty Rea casting directors are a thing of the past.

A recast could raise ratings. The problem is that the people they hire are not ratings draws. They have no history of it. They are hired with much fanfare, given a huge salary, major story, tons of airtime and the ratings never budge. The same can be said about returning "favorites." Whose favorites? Not the viewers. It's favorites of the producer or headwriter or other executive.
