Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, this is the forty-five-year-old soap opera that centers on the saga between two wealthy families (the Newmans and the Abbotts) in the cosmetics industry. Head of the Newman clan is Victor Newman, the arrogant, cavorting billionaire and his wife Nikki; and running the Abbott show is Jack Abbott, the irresponsible, playboy CEO, and his sister Ashley. Most of the show is centered on the competition between the two companies: Victor's Newman Enterprises and the Abbotts' Jabot. Written by scott

I love Y&R. I've been watching it for years and I've seen some great moments on this show but I continue to run into the same problems with it. First, the show is predictable and they recycle story lines repeatedly. Billy and Victoria are eventually going to get back together. Nicki and Victor are eventually going to get back together so let them be together and let's move on to something else. Their roller-coaster relationships are no longer interesting. Second, BRING ADAM BACK. Bring Adam Newman back to the show and stop killing him off. Adam is a likable character that also stirs the pot in Genoa City. Him coming back will turn the Newman family upside down. His brother who is unknowingly raising his son is in a committed relationship with his wife. If Adam comes back Nick's whole world will fall apart and I would love to see that happen. Nick is self-righteous and annoying. Chelsea belongs with Adam. Theirs is a love story that I'm actually invested in. Finally, I have to address Cane and how his life has crumbled around him. He deserved it. It was his fault he lost his job and his family. Lily was right to leave him and I wish her the best but Jordan is not a good replacement. Jordan looks like he's about to fall in love with every woman he speaks to. Lily needs to focus on herself and her kids for five minutes before she runs into the arms of another selfish man. The conflict with Mattie and Reed dating is ridiculous. They're like sixteen years old. Plenty of sixteen year old's date and naturally break up without their parents needing to get involved. Cane and Juliet were not at all interested in one another for months. They were friendly colleagues even after sleeping with one another. She needs to stop walking around holding her belly and speaking for two when she's fifteen minutes pregnant. I've had enough of her, I hate her voice and I would be satisfied if they revealed that Cane is not the father before killing the baby or both the baby and Juliet off of the show.
