Daytime dramas are a unique type of television programming. Unlike primetime, shows are put on five days a week, and it can be a constant challenge for writers to come up with creative content to keep viewers loyal and tuned in. More often than not, some characters can suffer this consequence, and the land of Genoa City is no exception to this rule. Below are 12 Young and the Restless (Y&R) characters that went from exciting to boring.

12. Gloria Bardwell

Gloria Bardwell had a splashing return during the 2016 holiday season, with an affair of comedic proportions with nemesis Jack Abbott at one point. Gloria is a diverse character, one which Y&R fans love to hate; however, as of late, lack of exciting storylines has made Gloria a little stale. Time for the writers to re-visit this character.

11. Tessa Porter

Tessa Porter dived into Genoa City and took Y&R by storm. She was once involved in a unique love triangle with Noah Newman and Mariah Copeland, and a human trafficking storyline with their mom Sharon. Sadly, something fizzled with Tessa and as fast as she entered the show, she exited.
