The Young and the Restless has a classic episode on tap for tomorrow’s Friday April 3rd installment.  Look for a re-airing of the very first wedding of the iconic Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott).
The episode originally aired back on April 13, 1984.  In story, the long-awaited wedding of Victor and Nikki is in jeopardy as Victor’s obsessed former secretary, Eve Howard (Margaret Mason), waits in the wings to harm the bride.

Meanwhile, Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) makes a grand entrance, Paul Williams (Doug Davidson) escorts Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman) to the nuptials, and Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) dreams of her own upcoming wedding to Eric Garrison (Brian Matthews).

The wedding episode remains one of Y&R’s all-time highest-rated moments.

A brand new original episode of Y&R will air on Monday, April 6th.

So excited to see this classic episode of Y&R tomorrow? Comment below.

i liked Margaret Mason as Linda on Days…wish days would rebroadcast..Doug and julie’s wedding…speaking of Days…i get budget cuts and all but im sick and tired of everyone there who can officiate a wedding_Julie, Abe, marlena and Kermit The Frog-ok, kidding about kermit…cant we at least have former priest eric instead…or at least a day player…soaps need a good old fashion wedding too

Hi Jimh–. I get why MF updated his website, but I kinda miss the old site, with the regulars — I don’t get here much. I hope you are doing okay.

I totally agree with you on the weddings– but Days has been doing that for a while– but considering most weddings on Days are interrupted, I guess the guy in accounting figured why pay someone to stand there when that happens, and just use an actor they were paying to be at the wedding anyway.

And those lavish weddings of the past are long gone-never to return again sigh

Well, its good to hear from you…i hope your ok too…im dealing with some medical problems and was scheduled for testing at hospital then this Pandemic happened i delayed testing until June hoping things improve by then…ya, budgets-no more lavish weddings!!!

I didn’t see it the first time so I am looking forward to this.

I d rather sooo many other classic episodes than the show always pandering to Eric and Melody. We get it. Their the stars of the show!
But show some other actors some love!
Shelias reign of terror on Lauren
Michael rapes Christine
Paul and the Cassandra mystery
Nina and David Kimble
The Dru/ Neil/ Olivia / Malcolm days
Ashley runs off and goes crazy
Matt Clark/ Sharon/Nick
Victoria catches Nina and Ryan
Gloria and John
Phyliss comes to town with Dannys ‘ child’
The possiblities are endless…
Y n r is sooo rich with history. I hope we get some variety, not just Vic, Nikki, and Jack epis
I cant wait for the classic ‘ real’ background music and for newer viewers to witness the true once great young and restless. What an embaressment the show s become.

Damien, I agree with you on all your post…YOU have my support…All the shows you mentioned would be so great to watch again…once they run out of new shows hopefully they will broadcast the classics and YES the real background music and I agree 100%, Y&R is no more and such an embarrassment, it’s no longer Y&R that Bill and Lee Phillip created, extremely sad.

Thanks Kevin!
Bells vision continued with Kay Alden at the healm which i recall was ended during the big writers strike! She was marvelous at continuing the true essense of Bill Bells creation! LML took over and that was the beginning of the end. Hopefully this latest break from the broadcasting will end the non writing team of Josh Griffith and maybe sony and cbs will beg Kay Alden to return to train the next generation of writers and recreate Bills legacy!!!!..and the real music too!!!

Damien, you are most welcome…it’s so refreshing that someone else longs for what Y&R use to be… YES, I have said the same thing regarding Kay Alden…I guess we can dream that they would beg Kay Alden to return to train the next generation. It’s so nice that even younger folks like you know the difference of the good old days and what is really good and what’s not…

Damien, what about when Vanessa Prentiss set up Lorie Brooks by jumping off the balcony, CLASSIC Y&R, oh the good old days.

I was too young then. I first recall watching when phillip chancellor jr died in a car accident with the teen set of cricket and Nina!!! The good ol days indeed!

I do remember the teen set of Cricket and Nina…THANKS again Damien for your vision of this once great soap…

Agree with you 100%! And, I would even dig back into the archives further– the Lori Brookes murder trial of Vanessa, Jennifer Brookes’ breast surgery, Leslie Brookes’ concert meltdown, Kay Chancellor’s “live” face lift. Holy Cow– these were such inventive stories! And, I miss Gina Romalotti’s singing. As well as the classic music. You’d think the writers today would heed the pleas of faithful, longtime viewers.

HELLO Ron, YES, so many great stories along with Lori and Vanessa, Jennifer’s breast surgery and Leslie’s concert meltdown and YES, Gina Romalottis singing, what a beautiful voice she has…CBS top brass don’t care about us long time viewers or even listen to us but we are the ones that know what a great daytime drama/soap is all about.

Is this the end of Y&R until the COVID-19 is past? It is one thing to look forward to, but if we’re hit by that virus, it may be the end of seeing anything new on our show.

This wedding was way before my time so I can’t wait to see it.

Y&R doesn’t air here in Hell, but props to them for doing flashback fridays correctly. As opposed to GH which threw up a really weak episode from last year.

that episode has been pulled out dusted off and shown more than a couple of time..
I’d like to see the ”beginning”
Episodes from the first ummm 5 years,,
Something interesting..

side note__
Y&Y is circling the drain..
it has become more than boring..
the overkill of pretend fake sex scenes are ISHHH.
and the loooong boring go-nowhere conversations, snooor.

the cancer story is a fail; all family support, little cancer realities.
it has little to do with the actual cancer horrors it’s a support story..
but– Sharon is doing excellent acting !!!
Victor didn’t kill anyone
Adams mother did (accidentally)
and Victor covered it up .. yawn, same’ol..

Yes, they need to start broadcasting the show from the beginning…

That would be a fantastic idea. Although,from what I understand, CBS may not have the complete originals because every now and then they would tape over the old shows. But, I might be– and hope I am– wrong. Nonetheless, CBS could string 2 episodes together every day for 60 minutes. I wouldn’t miss a single showing.

Hope is dead, so why would Victor give into Adam’s blackmail, it is not like they can put Hope in jail. I think it will turn out Adam killed the guy and repressed the memory– The guy was probably attacking his mother, so Adam grabbed something and hit him on the head– and Victor is protecting Adam from remembering — I mean that isn’t much better than Hope being responsible but a least it will be a bit more ironic, where Adam gets screwed over by his own scheme

I saw it when it originally aired and have watched it a few times since then. It’s such a reminder of the wonderful era of the 80s. Everything was perfect from the costumes, the music and the sets. Can you imagine a wedding in today’s age where nearly every actor on the show attended?

I miss so many things about the glory days of Y&R, but especially Jeanne Cooper as Kay Chancellor. She was magic!

And of course KCBS in Los Angeles promptly cut it off for a breaking news break and that was that.

for the millions of fans who watch online;
the Friday rerun episodes are not shown..

Sad for I noticed that, very sad.

Here are some of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE Y&R moments…
1. Sharon dumping Nick at the altar. OK…that one was sort of recent…lol.
2. Sharon finding out about Mariah being Cassie’s sister.
3. Lauren breaking up the almost Nina and Phyliss catfight.
4. The Lauren and Sheila rivalry.
5. Terrible Tom.
6. Michael and Kevin’s very emotional fight in that boxing ring.
7. Nina shooting David Kimble.
8. David Kimble’s death via that trash compactor.
9. The Katherine and Jill rivalry.
10. Sarah aka Veronica the maid.

The list goes on and on…

According to Deadline, Muldoon, along with Jennifer Taylor (Two and a Half Men), will play Caleb’s ultra-conservative parents.

Giovanni Mazza On Contract at General Hospital: What Are Your First Impressions?

This week, General Hospital introduced newcomer Giovanni Mazza in the role of Giovanni Palmieri, who apparently is Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) second cousin, one removed or so the story goes.

The character of Gio showed up at Brook Lynn’s wedding to Harrison Chase (Josh Swickard) and played the violin at the ceremony. As has been previously reported, Mazza in real-life is a professional violinist and actor.

Upon making his first appearance on the ABC daytime drama series back on May 15th, fans wondered if Gio will be sticking around and that was confirmed by the closing credits of the May 17th episode where Mazza’s name is included along with other contract players.

When the news of Mazza’s casting was announced, the talent young man took to his Instagram and shared the good news, expressing, “I am so honored, grateful, and ecstatic to announce the big news! The biggest thank you to General Hospital for bringing me.” He closed his sentiments with “So much love and joy to my new fam! YAY!!! ”

Commenting on his post included new castmates Evan Hofer (Dex) saying, “Happy to have you brother,” plus Tabyana Ali (Trina), Eden McCoy (Joss) and ABC executive Nathan Varni who said, “Congratulations! Welcome to GH!

During the May 17th episode, Gio had an exchange with Dex, where he mentioned that his father was in the military back in early 2000’s.  Previously, Gio revealed to Chase that his father died in the military when he was young. So this begs the question, who is Gio’s dad?

What were you first impressions of Giovanni Mazza in the role of Gio? Who do you think he might be romantically involved with and might be also related to other than the Cerullos? Comment below.
