Steve Burton Explains His Return to TV, New Gig on The Young and the Restless

Steve Burton

His fans are thrilled, except for the ones who are totally pissed. Emmy winner Steve Burton made big news — and crushed a lot of hearts — last fall when he left his role as General Hospital mob man Jason Morgan and moved to Nashville. So how come he's back in L.A. and working at The Young and the Restless a mere three months later? Burton hits the CBS soap Jan. 29 as war vet Dylan McAvoy, the supposedly-dead ex of Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). TV Guide Magazine caught up with Burton to get the deets on this head-scratching career move. This star has some 'splainin' to do!

Exclusive: Young and the Restless Chief Delivers the Scoop on Steve Burton

Steve Burton

We're just days into 2013 but it's safe to say that Jill Farren Phelps, exec producer of The Young and the Restless, has scored the casting coup of the year. On Jan. 29, Emmy winner Steve Burton — who previously worked under Phelps when he played hit man Jason Morgan on General Hospital — will join Y&R as Dylan McAvoy, the presumed-dead ex-lover of lawyer Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). It's no secret in the suds world that Burton and Phelps are thick as thieves. In fact, they're currently teamed with actor James Franco on a telenovela in development at Sony. But how the heck did she land Burton for Y&R? Citing a need for normalcy, the fan fave left GH just three months ago and relocated his family to a quiet homestead outside Nashville. Why's he back so soon? Phelps gave TV Guide Magazine the lowdown.

Disney Channel Ratings Champ Sofia the First Returns As a Series

Sofia the First

She's not just an overnight princess, she's an overnight success! The new Disney Channel fairytale series Sofia the First, about a simple village girl whose mom marries the king, will premiere Friday morning (9:30am/8:30c) to great expectations. This is not only one of the most ambitious and sophisticated animated series ever attempted for the preschool crowd — the Broadway-esque song score alone is a marvel of pop, swing, bossa nova, jazz and hip hop — but it's already a ratings monster. The pilot movie, Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess, drew 5.2 million viewers in its November premiere and was the highest-rated program for children ages 2-5 in the last five years.
