The Young and the Restless Boss: On the Way Out?

by at . Comments
800010502_220_cache.png TV Guide's Michael Logan is hoping the writers' strike is good for The Young and the Restless.

How come? Because rumors have it that executive producer/head writer Lynn Marie Latham (pictured) - who Logan says "has nearly ruined the once-glorious soap" - will not return, no matter when and how the walkout ends.

When contacted, a representative for the CBS soap opera hemmed and hawed, but didn't deny Latham's ousting or reports that Sony programming VP Steve Kent has now taken command. Kent was supervising producer of Santa Barbara, arguably the best daytime drama ever.
