It seems like not a day goes by without some mention of Michael Muhney and his firing from The Young and the Restless. Now, fans are abuzz on Twitter over rumors that Muhney is possibly headed to rival soap General Hospital. To add more fuel to the fire, speculation is that he could be the new Jason Morgan, a role once played by current Y&R actor Steve Burton.
There’s no telling if any of this is true, but if it is I wonder how the shows will be affected.
Y&R has been suffering since the actor’s firing; many fans are claiming to boycott the show once Muhney leaves and wherever he decides to go the fans will follow. If it’s GH, then Y&R could be in serious trouble.
The winners in this situation would be Muhney and General Hospital, not only will Muhney have a job, but he’ll bring new viewers which will be a huge benefit for the show. This could bring competition to Y&R, which has been the #1 soap for the past few years. Many Y&R viewers have been displeased with the direction of the show and it wouldn’t be surprising if they started tuning out or jumping ship to another soap.
What do you think? Do you think Muhney will be a great addition to GH?
