The Young and the Reckless?

Has "The Young and the Restless" really written off Victor Newman (Eric Braeden) over a salary dispute? He is the Simon Cowell of that show, or was when I used to tune in regularly. A legend.

I used to love soaps. Didn't matter which one. Of course I had my favorites, GH being my favorite from the Luke and Laura days. I loved the ones that are no longer on the air Another World, Guiding Light, Santa Barbara, Sunset Beach, The Doctors and The Edge of Night (bye-bye my old friends). I moved overseas but still kept up with Soap Opera Digest magazine.

I don't anymore, for the first time in 15 years I let my subscription last, when I'm home on leave I don't even try to catch a show anymore. They've lost me and I find that really sad. I don't know when it happened, perhaps with the new young "actors," who can't act their way out of a paper bag, or when the plots started being more derivative than original, I think it started with the loss of multiple generations within the shows.

Anyway, it's sad such a long standing form of entertainment is being lost.
