CBS ‘The Young and the Restless’ (Y&R) spoilers finds that fans are speaking out! Longtime viewers have expressed their outrage over the fact that Doug Davidson is no longer as visible on the show as he used to be before. As a matter of fact, they have even began a new campaign with a petition for CBS execs to bring Doug’s character Paul Williams back on full-time status. Here’s what you need to know.
The petition online says, “After 41 years of loyalty & commitment to CBS, Emmy award-winning actor, Doug Davidson is NOT receiving the storylines and/or airtime he deserves. Please show your support in wanting a more integral role for “Chief Paul Williams” on ‘Young and The Restless’ by signing this petition. In an industry where top executives are rewarded and paid an exorbitant amount of money to go away for questionable behavior, someone of Doug’s character, talent and grace being “discarded” is unconscionable!!!”
