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…

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!

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.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”
