Nina Tassler on Y&R’s Decision to Fire Michael Muhney: “We Supported Them”


While CBS Daytime was rejoicing over the entire lineup being renewed today, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler was fielding questions about the Michael Muhney scandal. At the 2014 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour, Tassler had this to say about Muhney's firing from The Young and the Restless and the scandal which ensued following his ouster:

I can’t comment on any of the allegations. I can only say that when the producers and Sony [Pictures Television] came to us and said, ‘We want to make a change,’ and they laid out their reasoning why, we supported them.
