          • It is shameful to see Victor disappointed. This man has held everyone together through out the years.
            I agree with Victor, the disrespect is uncalled for.
            Victor deserves better!

          • I agree, Y&R is already slipping if Victor leaves so do I. I’ve watched it from day one but I can certainly find something else to watch if Victor leaves the show. Drew

          • Can’t stand Victor he is a criminal he should have been along time ago, for all his crimes but no he is. Trump ne er pays for his crimes GET RID OF Victor

          • Yes please give Victor what he is asking for I would hate to see him leave the show. It definitely wouldn’t be the same without him and It would be hard although not impossible to replace him.

          • I agree with everyone else, GIVE (Victor) Eric what he wants. He makes the show !!!! No one will be able to replace him. I will no longer watch the Y&R. GIVE THE MAN WHAT HE WANTS!!! He is so worth it!!!

        • I have watched the show since it started too. I agree with most texts. Victor is the show. If he’s gone so am I .!!!!

          • I’ve watched Y&R since the inception. Victor Newman is the backbone of the show! He deserves to be well Compensated for his performances. He’s earned it after all these years. If Victor leaves, there’s no reason for me to continue watching 😢

          • Victor is the show it will lose ratings give Victor more money cheap scates he is worth it im with everyone else will stop watching it

        • Victor is the top man on this show, I have to say that it’s a pleasure to watch Y&R which I have since it started, the great actor, fashion, story lines, it’s so bright n beautiful. We don’t like to see any of our favorite stars leave although some may have too. But not Victor, he is tough. Don’t let him go!

        • Yes he does. I watch him on re-runs of combat when he was very young. Any role he plays is exceptional. Y & R could never replace Eric Braeden/Victor. Viewership would be destroyed!

        • If it wasn’t for Victor Newman there would not be a young the Restless whatever it is that y’all not doing for him y’all should he play his part so well.admire by allot of people and loved.

      • I agree. I have watched Y&R since the beginning in the 70s but he is the show. I have seen him in numerous westerns and he is 1 of the last of cowboys also. Give the man what he deserves.

        • I have been watching since the beginnine, came home druing lunch and watched, hubby got hooked too, bought our first VCR because of Victor and and that incredible house they had! Those days, NIki was stripping and all the disc jokeys would be taking about the bayou. Catherine, got hooked on a make stripper, and they handled his death so tastefully, Cash was his name. That was real writing, multi generations, Catherine as the strong woman of the set. That was some show, and today, it is Victor doing his he”God” auro that keeps me watching. I wil miss the bigget hunk on the show as well, Rey (Jordi Vilasuso. Looking to find him to watch wherever he lands.

      • DIANE YOU’RE, SO RIGHT!!!
        If Victor ), leaves Y&R,
        so do I. Victor is Y&R!!! There are several talented actors on The Young and Restless. Running close behind is … Nikki, Jack, Phyllis, Victoria, (who I’m worried about, due to Last Friday’s car accident she experienced).
        Also, there is Adam/Mark Grossman, Sharon, Billy…even Nick, who make Y&R !!! However, Victor leads the Pack!!! Y&R Production created Monster Viewers (Us)..lol. enjoying these actors every day!! I never want them to leave. Victor has to stay!!
        It is, “Still” Sad enough we had to lose Neil in “Real Life”. Heck, i even miss the 1st Ashland, as well as Summer and Kyle.
        Let’s keep our fingers crossed D ☺

        • You are right. Victor is a great actor and carries the part well but he came in as Julia’s mean husband. We must remember, we all get older and he may need a rest. I hope he comes back after his break. He should not have to take a wage cut. Sign the man if he wants to stay.

          • I have watch Y&R since day one when it first air Victor and Mrs. Chancellor was the backbone to the show. Now Victor carried this soap without her he leave I will wash my hands of it.

          • True and I liked the fact he was the man anyone could go to and he would just say I’ll take care of it. Haha who will take his place or be the man if he leaves. I still miss mrs Chancler and John. Both great actors. They’ll have to bring in a relative long lost brother to take his place.

        • The one thing I’ve loved about Y&R over the years is that when they show scenes of the past, the actors have remained with the show. Victor is one of them. He deserves to be compensated accordingly for his work. Let him continue with his personality, his moods, his controlling behavior and his history that brings out genuine emotions, be they hate, love, disdain, aggravation or whatever we fans feel. We all feel that he is someone we want to see.

          Reply
    • I agree all of the major players on the show have either passed on or have left the show and if Victor leaves that just leaves Jack and family along with the rest of the Newman clan. So if Victor walks I too am walking. They need need to let Victoria go or change her holier than thou attitude along with the rest of the family they all care about what Adam can do for them none care about Adam honestly not even daddy dearest.

Now, with Jordi Vilasuso gone, victor is the only real man on the show, the only two sexy ones, age beside the point. I had hopes for Adam, but none has lived up to the last one or my favorite whom Hunter King got fired. The last think we needed was Kyle back, and Noah has disappointed. Sick of Phyllis, blather, blather. The whole writing and casting has gone way downhill!

        Why not keep his salary intact until he decides to retire? He doesn’t forget where he comes from and always donates money in memory of his heritage.

Good luck with that too.

  5. I have been saying for months that I thought Eric Braeden would soon be retiring. I have thought he was having trouble remembering his lines and whenever he enters a scene, he sits down right away. Today, April 14th, he walked into Adam’s office and walked immediately to Adam’s desk chair and sat down. Adam sat in the guest chair at his own desk. Sally stood up the whole time. I have suspected Victor’s dialog was made available on a laptop or some small device for Victor could it if necessary. Sorry to see him go.

I’m sure he needs and deserves a break. Hopefully he’ll return after the 5 weeks rearing to take on the world again. Or at least just take on Genoa City, Wisconsin. Lol. He’ll be deeply missed. Not too sure if I’ll continue watching if he exits for good. Victor Newman IS Y & R

  10. One more thought! My opinion as a viewer is that if the show is to go on after Eric does leave they would have to fill his shoes with Adam! He could go the distance as he is a chip off the old hard cores block! I would continue to tune in.

  19. This is a ridiculous post. It’s a rewrite from two or three years ago when there were questions about renewing Eric Braeden’s contract. The rewrite is very poor – there are grammar errors, spelling errors, punctuation errors, timing errors, conflicting messages. Last air day is in November? That’s 7 months away! I don’t understand the purpose of this post.

  20. I watched the show since the beginning with the Brooks & Fosters & Chancellor’s. When Catherine died I was thinking about leaving. Then Jill left and I was disappointed. Then Neal died I was sad again. However I kept watching. Now that that whench Diane Jenkins came back from the dead. I am pissed! They brought people back from the dead on Days of Our Lives and I quit watching it. So if Victor/Eric leaves because they are cutting his payment instead of his health or he’s wanting to retire I am gone too! I am tired of the way huge companies want to reduce payments to their employees so the CEO can get a huge bonus. Do they think I am gullible and will continue to watch if they take money away from him….HELL NO I WILL GO!

  23. I think that because of this veteran actor being as loyal as he has been to y & r along with being a great actor basically carrying this soap since it’s beginning that he deserves more respect and salary than he’s being given. He’s held up this soap, now it’s time to repay him for that. I can assure you that if you loose him, you’ll loose lots of fans. It would behoove y’all to give him what he wants, and keep him.

  24. VICTOR NEWMAN leaving, are you serious????? If you want to see CBS day time fan base go down, just let Victor leave because I don’t think the Y&R fans that leave will automatically “run” to B&B. My thoughts!!😯

  25. I want Victor to stay. He is the show. I’ll except if he leaves it’s because he wants to retire. I think he deserves better then they are treating him. Give him what he wants. He keeps us watching the show. He deserves respect for making the show what it is today.

  28. I have been watching The Young and the restless from the dead started. I think if you take Victor out you’re going to lose a lot of people. You can’t keep taking the big stars out you had a great storyline going with Kyle and Summer Chelsea and Adam. Victoria and Ashland. Please don’t take all of them away you lose a lot of interest taking some of the bigger Stars they’ve been there for a long time. I’m not a writer by any means but I know a lot of people and I’ve gotten a lot of people to watch The Young and the restless through the years. There’s a lot of us in Minnesota that want to continue to watch The Young and the restless as so much is depleting on TV. Just a little heads up I hope it helps.

  29. Like everyone else i have been a super fan for years to the point people knew not to disrupt me when ynr was on. I have been mad as hell at Victor but he truly is a giant part of the show. I quit watchung the bold and beautiful because of bring back Shelia and Deacon. If Eric goes the i will have to move on also. Love the Newma n family, love me some Nicholas. But i will say good YNR. Good luck without him. By the way i can’t stand Sally and didnt like her on BNB either.

  31. I’ll use Y&R names. You have veteran actors on this show. If Victor isn’t being treated fairly, unfortunately, he should consider leaving. Also, they’re a package deal. Nick, Victoria and Nicky. Yes! I love other cast members but be real.
    I’ll say my good bye ✌️ now. I purchased Paramount plus to watch, I’ll be saving about $140 a year. No current Newmans no audience.
    Peace ☮️ out.

  32. If Victor leaves I will stop watching the program !! He makes the show along with his family. I will not watch it without them. We need Victor and Jack’s family.

  33. I agree with EVERYONE ELSE if ERIC B. decides to retire on his own then I’m okay with it, BUT if it’s because Y&R doesn’t want to give him a pay increase (not really sure if that’s what this is about since Eric’s note said he was trying to work w/ them but they weren’t willing to do the same) but either way pay increase or other incentives, give him what he deserves anyone who works ANYWHERE FOR 35+ years and puts in the kind of performance he has put in DESERVES an increase of some kind every time his contact comes up for renewal in my opinion. Think of yourself if it were you (and this includes all the executive producers and BELLS) if you had worked at the same company for 35+ years and they told you sorry we know you’ve been with us this length of time but we’re going to pay this 25 year old instead of you an increase (especially when they either aren’t as good as actor as you OR don’t have anywhere near the storyline that you do – in this particular situation) how would you feel, wouldn’t you tell them goodbye (to put it nicely). GIVE THE MAN WHAT YOU WOULD GIVE YOURSELF IN THE SAME SITUATION MR. BELL or whatever ignoramus made this horrible mistake.

  34. You people suck…. trying to shame a person’s spelling error!! You should be ashamed with your old, judgmental ass. It must be really, really nice to be perfect!

  35. Yes, Victor has been with the show for a long long time and if he’s 81 like someone said, yes he’s gradually getting up in age and eventually we’re going to lose him,if he should pass away what then, so all of you are saying you’ll stop watching young and the restless, I feel the same way to, who will be the one to replace him when his time come, so what if he makes millions of dollars he’s earned it and he’s been there a long time if it’s just for five weeks OK, but remember when he passes away like Mrs. Chancellor did what will we/ they do. I watch the show for so so many years.

  36. A more appropriate announcement would be is that the show is changing its name to Victor Newman and the Young & Restless!! No other announcement will do. Don’t you know by now there is no Y&R without Victor Newman. Isn’t it enough that Catherine Chancellor and John Abbot is gone? Leave us at least one Legend. Give the man whatever he asks for because he is worth it and more. Victor Newman is beloved! No Victor? NO Y&R!

  37. No Victor…. No show. End of story. It is to my understanding he isn’t asking for a raise but only asking not to be cut in pay…. Better fix it fast.

    Reply
  38. What does this say about Y&R producers?? This sounds like bad business for them to reduce his pay!! I suggest you keep him on at the pay rate he’s accumulated!! Victor is one of the main (backbone) characters, if you let him walk away because of greed, you will LOSE A LOT of viewers, including myself!! If you need to compensate, get rid of one of the newer characters!!

  39. I have watched Y&R since the beginning, Eric Braeden is 1 in a million, give him what he wants, if no Victor then I quit watching. The Bells’ need to listen to the public input, if no viewers then no money for them.

  40. Victor is the show. If he leaves it won’t be a good soap opera anymore. I been watching him on the show since I was in my early twenties.Give him a raise he deserves it.

  41. I graduated high school in 1980 & have been watching Y & R ever since. Eric Braeden “IS” the glue that has always held this show together. It saddens me to think of you no longer being on the show… I absolutely love watching you Eric…. whatever Eric wants he deserves think of all the $$$ he has made for this show. He DOES NOT deserve a decrease in salary. Love u Eric ♥️

  42. If Eric Braeden leaves Y&R, I will no longer be watching. He makes this show real. I watched the very first episode and have been watching ever since. I know he wasn’t on in the beginning, but let’s not take him off now. I loved him when he first started and I love him even more today.

  43. To many great actors are leaving young and the restless. Is bad enough. If Victor leaves it will for sure be devastating for the show. I really hate to see Ray is leaving and summer is being recasted. Looks like it’s time for me to move on to something new to.
