The Young and the Restless just placed casting coal in the stockings of many fans this holiday season.

Michael Muhney, who has starred on the CBS soap opera for almost six years as Adam Newman, Tweeted yesterday that he's been fired from the daytime drama.

"It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R," the actor wrote. "My last day on the set is this Thursday.”

Muhney, whose final installment will air January 30, added:

“I’m going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am most concerned for their well-being… I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have.”

CBS is yet to comment on the dismissal.

I wonder if they want to get rid of the actor? Are they going to have Adam confess to killing Delia and go off to prison. I will miss him. He is a great actor.

This show is truly going no where! With out Adam and Billy's charters this show would just be the same ole. This make no since and I watch for so long but I will not longer watch. These are 2 of the best actors this show has ever had. Goodbye!

I am extremely shocked to read of both Adam and Billie are being fired. Adam and Billy deserve an academy awards for their acting. They are both so exciting playing their parts that I will not miss watching the next episode. Y&R will not be the same. PLEASE RECONSIDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Big mistake!!!! Adam makes the show.
Lately the Y & R has been so boring and tedious to watch. I look forward to seeing Adam every single day. Michael, I wish you all the best. You will be missed :(

It's a big mistake to let Michael go. He is a
Wonderful actor.
The newer actors that have joined the cast are doing nothing for Y&R.
CBS you need to wake up.

What a mistake Y&R has made. The show will go downhill without him. There is no one that can take his place. I would sincerely think this over. You are going to lose many fans of the show. You are letting the wrong people go. This goes for Billy's character. I have watched this soap for many years and want to continue but am now having seconds thoughts. Wake up CBS

I've been watching Y & R since the first day it aired. Not only are they bringing back the former Billy, they are getting rid of Adam. These are horrible choices for this long standing fan. I am thinking it's time for me to stop watching.
