'Y&R' keeps Paul on the back burner

Since Doug Davidson returned to "The Young and the Restless" his character Paul has been on the back burner, except for a few romantic encounters with his wife Christine. They had lunch in Chancellor Park several times and also discussed her walking away from her job as DA. Chief Williams tried to investigate Adam's shooting but was stonewalled when a random man confessed.

Since that time Paul has not been involved in any major storylines. Viewers wonder why he was rehired, but is not getting air time?

Head writer Josh Griffith heeded the voice of the viewers to bring Paul back. Perhaps he will listen now that they are expressing disappointment the lack of a meaty storyline for the veteran actor. Doug Davidson addressing his fans questions will put them at ease and they will be looking forward to seeing him on "The Young and the Restless" again.

Be on the lookout for spoilers to indicate what direction Paul and Christine will be headed in when they are back on screen. Continue watching the drama unfold in Genoa City by tuning in each weekday afternoon at 12:30 PM EST on CBS.
