New "Y&R" head writer Josh Griffith has made an important decision to right a wrong that was done by his predecessor. When Mal Young took over, he stated he was going to take the show in a new direction, and fired 40-year veteran and fan favorite Doug Davidson. Young then brought in the Rosales family and had them front and center with longtime Genoa City characters. Viewers were outraged and called for the executive producer to be removed from his position and the powers that be obliged. Josh Griffin has heard the cry of those who faithfully watch the CBS daytime drama and now Paul Williams will be seen again on screen.
