Fans of The Young and Restless have spoken. They are over Billy Abbott’s (Jason Thompson) ridiculous podcast. They find the storyline ridiculous and silly. Fans have stormed social media to beg the show to stop “torturing” them. While podcasts are hot in the entertainment world, they’re not so hot when it comes to soap storylines.

The CBS soap must’ve looked to Hulu’s hit show, Only Murders in the Building, for inspiration. Billy Abbott ended up with his own podcast. Rather than talking about true crime, he talks about the mistakes he’s made over the years. Viewers slammed his podcast as “cringy” and “absurd.”

Billy Abbott’s BIG career change

The recent episodes of The Young and Restless have entirely focused on Billy Abbott’s new podcast. He launched The Grinning Soul podcast to work on his personal issues, rather than see a therapist. Billy thought the platform was a healthy outlet to have. He also hopes to become an inspiration to others.

Tuesday’s episode of The Young and Restless focused mainly on Billy once again. During the one-hour episode, he discussed the future of his show with his girlfriend Lily Winters (Christel Khalil). Then, he was inspired to record another installment of his podcast.

However, The Young and Restless fans are finding these scenes painfully boring to sit through. They don’t want to watch Billy Abbott talk to himself. During his time on the show, the actor has got backlash for talking to himself, chewing gum, and going back to his old ways. This time, however, he’s talking to himself on his podcast as he heals from his addiction.

Billy Abbott has made a big career change. He feels that his podcast could change lives. The troubled man has come a long way from gambling his money away. He went from a Chief Executive Officer to the founder and host of his own podcast.

The Young & Restless fans want his podcast canned

While Billy hopes that his podcast will impact people, fans of The Young and Restless are bored with the storyline. During Tuesday’s episode, they took to Reddit to share their dismay. Most of them are begging the show to stop the “torture” and put an end to his podcast. They don’t know how much longer they can take.

  • “Please god… MAKE IT STOP!”
  • “Who in their right mind would actually listen to his podcast? Seriously Billy, pay a therapist!”
  • “This whole podcast thing is getting stupid. They need to abandon this immediately.”
  • “I skip those parts. It’s cringy and I just can’t.”
  • “Absolutely absurd. Make it stop.”

One fan of The Young and Restless is shocked to learn that Thompson is okay with the storyline going on forever. The Young and Restless fans agree that “it’s painful to watch.” They have a feeling that Billy is no longer needed on the soap since the writers don’t know what to do with him.

  1. The podcast is not only awful but boring. I silence my TV or vacuum till its over. If the writers are trying to make a connection with the things to come, its not working because no one is listening. 😆😆😆

    1. Well at least it’s not the ridiculous storyline with Devon and Chance and the baby he was only supposed to donate sperm too , that was horribly painful to watch and one of the worst storylines ever !!

  2. Find something else for Billy . Billy might find it healing but it’s driving the viewers crazy !

    1. There’s so much more to ( Abbott) Billy is a handsome rich billionaires type that should be running a magazine or , retail buying storerooms; for showing high fashion shows and photo shoots; as well as new; cosmetics lotions creams ointments things that his family’s company makes. His sister Ashley has been gone for so long but yet still she runs a cosmetic laboratory this is where he should be creating new products for dermatology. This character is a ‘ABBOTT’ and it’s time for him to start acting like it. Billy’s podcast should be about skin care skin healthcare ( his family companies has found a cure for burns) and (Jabo cosmetic)is very close to developing a serum that is the fountain of youth. I would love to be a writer on this show!
