We Demand CBS Rehires Michael Muhney as Adam. Immediately.

      Long Island, NY

On the daytime drama, the Young and the Restless, Michael Muhney has been Adam Newman for 5 years, and he was fired today, December 17, 2013. He IS Adam Newman, and there is no reason to fire him. He is an exceptional actor and one who can stand up to the character of Victor Newman believably. We do not want to see another actor in the role, "especially not a General Hospital, Guiding Light or All My Children ex-cast member "friend" of Jill Farren Phelps.

If you are a fan of the Young & the Restless, you know how important Michael has been to the character. There are many of us, from the comments I have read, who say that the ONLY REASON they watch the show is because of Michael Muhney. We deem this as a slap in the face not only to Muhney, but to all his fans. We feel your Executive Producer, Jill Farren Phelps seems to only be interested in making room (in any way she can) for her actor friends. This is an absurd and unnecessary action and we will stop watching in droves if you don't change your mind and reinstate him immediately.

To:
Jill Farren Phelps, Executive Producer, Young & the Restless
Bradley Bell / Lee Bell, Executive Producers, Bell Dramatic Serial Co.
Leslie Roy Moonves, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, CBS Corporation
We demand you rehire Michael Muhney as Adam. Immediately.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

    2. Highlight Hollywood Claims Muhney & Miller May Only Be the Beginning

      According to Highlight Hollywood, Muhney and Miller are only the beginning of what will be more firings. Don't be surprised if actors who originated their roles could be on their way out. You never know. In the mean time, it claims the ratings are up, but aren't the ratings up because of Muhney and Miller? JFP needs to go.

    4. Doug Davidson says, "Jill Farren Phelps Had Nothing To Do With It"

      According to Doug Davidson, "There's more to the story."

      Well, let us in on it!

      Michael said something about "hubris" in the Huff Post article. Did he piss off a CBS exec? Whatever the reason, it wasn't enough of one to fire him. It certainly wasn't because of his lack of talent or work ethic.

    6. Interesting Take on Jill Farren Phelps Power

      Petition Organizer

      Our friends at Highlight Hollywood posted this expose of sorts about what some are calling "FOJ" or "Friends of Jill," saying that JFP ousts current actors and adds storylines for new characters, all the while hiring her "friends." Just kissing up? Or is it more?

      Michael was a very good actor. As for Hunter saying he groped her....maybe she should quit showing her boobs all the time on the show. She is awful young to be wearing the low cut tops that she wears, just asking for trouble. Put them out there, somebody is going to say or doing something to tick her off. Then cover the darn things up!!!

      Michael Muhney IS Adam Newman! The biggest mistake made, was to let him go! He needs to return to Y&R as NO ONE can fill his shoes or will be excepted! This show is loosing viewers by the day and this would certainly thrill many viewers and raise the ratings. BRING BACK MICHAEL MUHNEY, IMMEDIATELY!
