FRIDAY on Y&R: Rebroadcast Of Victor and Nikki’s Classic 1984 Wedding

Photo: CBS
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.

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

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.

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.

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 !!!
PS;
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.

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…

Later.

‘This Is Us’ Guest Star Ron Cephas Jones & Jasmine Cephas Jones Become First Father-Daughter Winners In Emmy History

On Saturday night, Ron Cephas Jones took home his second Emmy for his guest-star turn on the hit NBC drama, This Is Us.   Jones, plays the biological father, William Hill to Sterling K. Brown’s Randall Pearson.  Jones took home the gold during the final night of the Creative Arts Emmys leading into Sunday’s night’s major ceremony on the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys on ABC. (8 p.m. EST/5 p. m. PST).

But what made last night all the more special for Ron is that with this win, he, along with his daughter actress Jasmine Cephas Jones, became the first father-daughter duo in Academy history to win Emmys.  Jasmine won on Thursday night’s Creative Arts Awards for her work on Quibi’s #FreeRayshawn.   Ron won in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama series, while Jasmine took home the gold in the Outstanding Actress in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series category.

In the virtual press room following his win, Ron expressed: “As a parent that’s the most fulfilling that I could ever feel at the moment. Winning another Emmy is the icing on the cake, but to see my daughter progress and move into this place where she’s earned an Emmy is beyond words and I tear up every time I think about it to be honest with you. To see my daughter become healthy and happy, that’s a parent’s dream.  I’ve always focused on the work ever since she was a little girl, and coming from the theater it’s always been about trying to do good work…when you do what you want to do and you’re happy and you’re healthy that’s the win in itself… When we found out she was nominated, I was expressing to her that’s the win in itself when your work gets acknowledged and the win itself is the icing on the cake that keeps you humble and keeps you hungry.”

However, Ron’s win did not go off without hitch!  The broadcast announced The Outsider‘s Jason Bateman as the winner, and then suddenly cut to a commercial.  After the break, a title card acknowledged the mistake and confirmed that the This Is Us star was the actual winner.  In the virtual press room an announcement to all was made that: “They announced the right winner and the right slate, but the voiceover was incorrect.”

So what do you think about Ron Cephas Jones second Emmy win for This Is Us, and his daughter winning an Emmy the same Emmy season? Comment below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
