CBS Renews The Young and the Restless For 3 Years; Entire Daytime Line-Up Gets Renewal Pick-Up!

Courtesty/CBS

In a show of commitment, faith, and support for their top-rated soap opera, The Young and the Restless, CBS today officially renewed the daytime drama for another three years!

In other news, the network renewed the entire line-up featuring The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk and Let’s Make a Deal through the 2017-2018 season. The Price is Right received a two-year pickup.

Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, Daytime Programs and Syndicated Program Development, CBS Entertainment and CBS Television Distribution said in a statement: “CBS Daytime has never been stronger. From 30 consecutive years of being #1 in the ratings, to another year as the most honored Network at the Daytime Emmys, our lineup of talk, game shows and dramas connects with our audience like no one else. All of our talent, on screen and behind the scenes, is hard at work making the upcoming season of these award-winning series even bigger and bolder.”

So, what do you think about Y&R’s three-year pick-up? Comment below.

I failed to mentioned I am happy about B&B…Y&R and B&B are my 2 favorites. I no longer watch GH or DAYS but I might tune into Days once Eileen Davidson returns.

Glad to hear about the renewal.

Not feeling Jack vs Billy vs Phyllis vs Victoria

Hillary is racking up a list of enemies…..not good. I wonder if her luck is slowly running out. She seems to have issues with most of Genoa City and we haven’t had a murder on the show in a long time.

Not surprised..
Y&R will , without a doubt, be the last soap to go.

And when the other 3 soaps are canceled most of their viewers will migrate to Y&R because they need a soap and therefor Y&R will gain a million..
Y&R will remain as long as there is daytime TV, most likely.

People are sad its on another three years…kidding.-lol..at least we know the show will be around until 2020…then it will get cancelled and some will blame Trump who gets reelected for a second term-lol

True that Rebecca, however, at least those two individuals are relatively sane and won’t be blowing all these bells and whistles to distract us from the important issues of the day like health care, climate change and education. At least with them we can confront those issues head on and fight for our rights and for our planet without swatting away all this insanity. It’s kind of sad how we have lowered the bar. I am so tired of saying, “Well at least he/she is better than Trump.” But hip, hip, hooray for Y&R!! Now this three more years I… Read more »

Hi Rhonda…I hear what you’re saying but I detest Pence, Ryan…the whole lot of them. Healthcare? There’s not one of them that cares if they put millions of lives in jeopardy; however…they MIGHT make a few concessions if it effects their constituents and thus effects their own votes when they’re running again. Climate change? Education? It’s not Trump making these decisions alone…between Bannon whispering in his ear..ugh…just can’t stand any of them. Back to healthcare. It’s too sick, pun not intended but so appropo…Trump is a billionaire so none of what he does or doesn’t do with healthcare will ever… Read more »

Bravo! I’m happy for all Y&R fans. We need ALL of our soaps to get multi-year picks. But as unlikely as that is these days, it’s an extraordinary feat.

I’m glad Y&R got the 3-year deal but i sure wish the old way of telling stories on Y&R would come back. That’s when the show really was thriving because no story got told before it’s time no matter how long we had to wait for the payoff. The writes made sure everything was perfect.

Tucker

“The old way of telling stories” – please elaborate….

James R. Poissant
Guest
James R. Poissant

They used to take forever to get through a storyline but the payoff was always tremendous. None of the shows are like that much anymore. Alot of stories are sped up which can be ok but I still prefer the very slow buildup.

Tucker
Guest
Tucker

If you are referring to the classic story-telling by Bill Bell, yes – he wrote stories for the most part that took time in telling its tale before the big payoff. I think Sally Sussman is doing a great job in trying to replicate the late Mr. Bell’s way of storytelling, but this is not a different time and era – people don’t want to take the time to follow a good story – they want the Cliffs Notes version in this day and age.

Thank you for clarifying your comment =c)

Nice for Y&R fans but I would have liked B&B to be renewed for three more too. One…that sounds kinda iffy…

Rebecca, I agree. I would have thought B&B would be renewed for 3 more years like it’s sister soap, Y&R. I’m concerned too!

Rebecca…If I remember right it is reported that B&B is the number ranked soap internationally. If so seems good reason to renew it.

Hmmmmm…I looked it up after reading your comment and read that the ratings dipped really badly last year and hasn’t come back. There was talk of cancellation but thankfully they decided to renew it…at least for now. I then read, in the same article, that it’s ranked number one globally so if it was cancelled it would continue as a web series… Huh. Interesting….

Joy

YAY! Love Y&R!
That said, this damn sexual harassment suit lodged against Brass and Sassy is getting on my last nerve. Who thought this was a good idea?
It’s a boring, pointless story.
I do love what is going on with Nicki and Melody Thompson Scott is doing a bang up job (she also looks amazing, what has she done to herself besides losing some weight? )
I also like the Abbot family coming together again.

Soaphound
Guest
Soaphound

I’m with you, Joy. I was hoping Cane would get a break or that the sleeping with Juliet was “sexless”. Victoria is a terrible boss and Billy gets preferential treatment no matter how she denies it. Cane should cut his losses and tell Jill AND Victoria to shove their job! And I LOVE the Abbott family dynamics, especially when dear Traci is on. I even like the Jack & Gloria duo…in the boardroom, not the bedroom.

Victoria IS an awful boss. I can’t stand the character.

Melody is unbelievable—stellar actress, Joy. Agreed. I may be in the minority here, but Cane deserves everything he’s getting. I’m not too enthused about the sexual harassment thingy, either, but, if it takes Cane down a notch or two…then, let’s roll. I am not saying that Juliet is all that innocent or the damsel in distress, but, the way Cane handled ‘things’ and himself in the aftermath, repulses me. He should have been more forthcoming with his wife and Victoria. And, especially with Michael . Never lie to the man who is to defend you. Stuff will, indubitably, arise at… Read more »

Likewise, Nanci….have been hooked since I was a kid. We have our cherished characters and memories of the best soap in the afternoon. Now, all I ask for is for Juliet to be pregnant with Caine’s baby…..otherwise, her suit will trip and ‘fail’, LOL. I know it’s a worn-out soap ‘outcome’, but, I NEED vindication. LOL. It may not have been sexual harassment, but, he still slept with her…inibriated or not—he knew, and kept it from his wife. But, the reason I want him to pay is not just for cheating on his wife and LIE about it; but, for… Read more »

Cane has been just a big, swarmy slimeball – with Lily, Billy, Victoria, etc. Yuk.
And yep, I agree, Cee. The proof in the pudding type of thing…although not
crazy about the idea of an actual pudding baby, lol, but that way the truth
could be proven.

And no surprise that Jordan was right there to comfort Lily. He wasted no time!
Jeez, could he be any more obvious? He has been waiting to pounce, despite
his initial interest in Hilary. But I definitely don’t want Lily and Jordan together!

Rhonda

Can someone tell me why Cane is now always whispering?
Did he attend the same theater arts school of whispering that Gina Tognoni attended?

Shay
Guest

Or perhaps somewhere along the line, Cane encountered Sam from GH…this “whispering thing” must be caused by a contagion spread person to person around the “Soapland” sphere…apparently there is no known cure for this bewildering–and vexing–condition.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hey, Nanci,
Juliet had the ‘vapors’…passed out right there at Lily’s ‘such a good girl’ feet, LOL.
Is she pregnant?
That’ll shut Lily’s sainted mouth, and then some, no?

Nanci
Guest
Nanci

Lol, Cee. And if she really is pregnant, no way can Lily handle it.

And what version of the truth was Juliet about
to spout right before she took a tumble, I wonder.

Celia
Guest
Celia

HaHa, Nanci,
Maybe she was going to fess up and tell the true version? No harassment? Even so, it does not erase the fact Cain had sex with her and doing his best hiding it.
Well, his best isn’t good enough. As flawed as Billy is, he sees right through him and what really went down.
Juliet may have a different malady, but a pregnancy would put a beautiful, juicy, red cherry on my cake.

Tani Sterling

I am behind in my viewing as usual. I would like to know what is going on about the whispering with Cain. Also, they both seemed to bear a little responsibility. However, as said I haven’t seen the last week. For me, I really didn’t think they had made “love.”

For me the twins all of a sudden being teens was a bit much, but the Winters family, however, needs some reconstitution.

What happened to Jill?

As usual, Timmm, you’re right on target. Jordan is a staggeringly gorgeous man, but dull as dishwater. And I hate this incarnation of Billy, especially when Billy Miller created such a well-rounded, sexy, funny, flawed, impossible and impossible to resist hero. Even Burgess Jenkins tried to keep Billy’s basic sweetness and humor. But now? Snark, sarcasm, and genuine looks of hatred for basically everyone he comes in contact with. Don’t know what Phyllis sees in him. At least Ravi isn’t front and center lately, though at least they’ve found a haircut that works for him. And Scott? Who knew lack… Read more »

Jordan is SO boring. Of course, anyone paired in scenes with Lily is boring, IMO.

Celia
Guest

Ahhh, Soaphound. My heart hurts every time I think of Billy Miller in his role of Billy Abbott. I miss him so much. What Miller did to that role was remarkable…..he made Billy A special, in that, no matter what ‘bad’ deed he engaged in was ok!
It sounds unreasonable, but it’s what the viewer felt. Thompson’s “reincarnation” (so aply put) of Billy is a farce. You’re right, this Billy approaches everyone with a modified snarl….with indignation.
Cane does it under the surface—sneak.
I wish Miller would come back. I cannot connet with Jason.

Ok, T….Kenny G made me laugh!! Hard! HaHa.

Celia…oh, yes. Now that JFP and her ‘Golden Boy’ Steve Burton have left ‘the Y&R building’ (Y-A-Y!!!!!), Billy Miller needs to come back to Y&R ASAP (He’s being wasted on GH, anyway). And Jason Thompson needs to BE SHOWN THE DOOR!!!!!

Later, my friend.

@Jaybird.
Y&R could go back to its fairytale splendor, Jay, if Billy M would return. Would he pick up or maintain those same magnetic characteristcs which held us captive?
It’s a hit or miss, my friend. But, I’ll take him, anywhichway. LOL.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Yeah, Timmmy. Miss our chats….not from lack of trying. Many of my posts to you and Shay do not go through.
I must comment on “Kenny G”, LOL. I am so disappointed!!!! He’s not as hot as in his picture. LOL.
What did I ever see in him? That hair ‘gots’ to go. Who knows what’s growing in there.
You and Soaphound nailed it—-
The twins? As bad as the teens on Days; if not worse.
Yet, I love my Y&R; with all its flaws.

Celia
Guest
Celia

Y&R should really look for an in-your-face- actor….add a little spice and comedy in the mix. I love my soap, but, as it is, Nick is the only one who tries to lighten up the ‘atmosphere’. Don’t laugh, T, I said ‘tries’. Yes, it’s a soap, and typically drama-filled. But, times call for some respite. Laughter is the answer. You remind me of my husband—he makes me laugh, more often than not. Contrary to popular belief, we do not have a weird sense of humor, LOL….they just don’t get it. We could be at a family/friends gathering and he’ll whisper… Read more »

Ha, ha, ha! Tim, you’re funny.
But who is Kenny G? Would that be Graham? Scott?
Am I the only one who really likes Scott?
But I agree with the rest. When Jordan speaks it’s like hearing one big giant yawn. And all the money in the world cannot make Devon interesting.
I do like Tess and that girl can sing.

Kenny G is Scott. Graham, I like him. He and Ashley would be great together. They need to extend Graham’s connections to Y&R or bring in some of his family to bulk up his linage. He is handsome and sneaky!

Lol, T….I like Scott, too….I just don’t think he’s as good looking as I originally thought.
You really think he’s sneaky? What did I miss? Do you think he has an agenda? If he does, wouldn’t it be tasty ( lol) if Victor is the target?!
I hope against hope thst Sheila will make the trip to GC, if for nothing else, but to see her and Scott come “faccia a faccia”.
Should be interesting, for lack of a better word…..whereas, I am sure that any confrontation with Luren will be high voltage.

Timmm

First, to be fair, he can act and I like his witty banter BUT he is smug and SOMEONE needs to tell him he needs to cut that ugly mop! [A girlfriend, wife boyfriend, SOMEONE!] I dont think Victor is his target because Vic paid 10 million dollars to free his hair! I hope Sheila shows up and shaves him bald! But like you said, having Lauren and Sheila face-off would be high voltage!

Hello, Sir Timmmbo! I miss our fun little chats, too…as CeeCee said, it’s certainly not for lack of trying….often attempting to share thoughts with the two of you is like the cyber-equivalent of talking to one’s self, since that’s how far the conversation usually goes! At any rate, hope you are having a truly “great” summer and please know that just because we seemingly can’t exchange many words here anymore doesn’t mean that I’ve forgotten how delightful and special my previous times posting with you and “Double C” were…wonderful memories, indeed!

Awww Shay, just the sweetest words, thank you. I to have no idea what goes on behind the cyber curtain on this site. It seems like less is posted about GH and Michael seems to stay away from ANYTHING that might cause heated debates? He doesnt post ratings that often anymore either. That would get everyone talking about all four soaps. Maybe the good old day are just that, the good OLD days? But I still am grateful to him for sharing his love for this art form.

Lol @ ‘Kenny G.’ I swear I was thinking that subconsciously but that mop is original if nothing else (probably because no one besides the real Kenny G would dare attempt it;). However I’m just going to assume he is a naturally curly dude, but I wish they would stop trying to give him this friction with Abby because Sharon deserves better than a burgeoning possible love triangle. Abby’s annoying, and she complains whenever Victor gives anyone any promotions or new responsibilities, feeling threatened for no reason, because last I checked only Abby, Scott, and Victor are the only employees… Read more »

Surprised that Y&R would get a 3 year extension with falling ratings. Price is Right should have gotten 3 years and Y&R should have gotten 1 or 2 at best with boring The Talk and Lets Make Me Snooze. Still mad with CBS for ripping hearts with the ATWT and GL cancellations. Maybe they will return some day as 30 minute soaps that are more seasonable in lieu of every day. I already have great ideas for a GL return.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
