DOOL Head Writer Congratulates Y&R Writing Team
Ron Carlivati, the head writer of “Days Of Our Lives,” was quick to offer his good wishes to the scribers of “The Young and the Restless.”
“Congrats to our friends and colleagues at @YandR_CBS on their Writers Guild award! #yr #days #gh #bandb” he posted on his social media account.
Of course some of the Y&R scribes, including Bibel and Hensley, posted their awards on their personal Twitter accounts.
Fans React To The News
Fans also reacted to the good news and congratulated the writers. One follower said, “Congrats on your award. The #teriah storyline has been particularly awesome. Keep up the good work. I appreciate you guys!”
But there were also those who had something else to say.
“What?! I don’t know who voted for them to get this award, but it wasn’t the fans that have been complaining for months and years about the writing and how horrible it is!” one Twitter user replied.
Another fan chimed in and said, “The writers guild is crazy in giving Y&R this award. As a viewer of over 40 years, the past two years have been the worse stories ever written for the show. Obviously, the other soaps must really suck if Y&R won.”
