Y&R has become the show which casts the right actor in the wrong role, the wrong actor in the right role (see Malcolm) or someone know in pop culture in a useless role. Whatever the case, it's completely perplexing.
Hopefully Maura West can spin this into gold the way she's done with some stinker storylines on AS THE WORLD TURNS over the years. If she can, give her a third Emmy. But Y&R seems to be off the rails with its decision making in the past year.
