The news broke earlier today, September 13, 2016 that Charles Pratt is out at "The Young and the Restless". Thanks goes to TVLine, for sharing his new position at "Star" the mid-season show from Lee Daniels, which will air on FOX.
It isn't surprising that Chuck Pratt is out at Y&R, as once Mal Young was in place it was bound to happen. He's now the executive producer, so why would he want or need a co-producer. Also, Mr. Young probably wanted to pick someone to help execute his vision. It will be interesting to see what happens there. With "Star", we'll see, as "Empire" started having issues after the first group of episodes. Will the same happen to "Star" or will Lee Daniels become even more successful on FOX?
