How do you follow up giving Noah Newman the best storyline he's had since the character was SORASed to adulthood? If you're Jill Farren Phelps and Chuck Pratt, you bump the sexy dude playing the legacy character to recurring.
I know, I know, Deadline said Pernas was taken off contract due to budgetary reasons, but I hear that's b.s. Chuck simply has run out of things to do with the characters for the foreseeable future, which, in my opinion, is more troubling. How do you not have story for young, restless characters on a soap opera called The Young and the Restless? Oy.
