On March 26th 1973, the late Bill Bill, and his wife, Lee Bell launched their creation that changed the soap opera world, The Young and the Restless!

And today in 2014, the soap that has been at number one for twenty five years running, and has recently received a three-year pick by the CBS Television Network is celebrating anniversary number forty-one! Yesterday, On-Air On-Soaps attended an on set event honoring the series with the cast, crew, producers and Sony and network executives.  The ceremony featured a speech from executive producer Jill Farren Phelps, lots of photos,  and lots of celebrating.  Look for more from the gathering in the days to come!

CBS News in Los Angeles was also on hand to grab some interviews with Steve Burton (Dylan), Lauralee Bell (Christine) and Tracy E. Bregman (Lauren) as you will see from this clip after the jump!

Now, leave your congratulation anniversary messages to the cast and the crew who make Genoa City a viewing destination for millions each week for their accomplishment in the comment section below!

Young and the restless, is still number 1 Gloria. Michelle Stafford has moved on, They will recast phyllis, sooner than later. Robin Christopher ex skye amc, would be a terrific Phyllis. Also Elizabeth Keifer ex Blake Guiding Light would also be a great Phyllis.

The ratings do not reflect the entertainment value. Y&R and CBS, along with others, constantly and consistently say the same thing: “Y&R is #1”. That is a way for viewers not to stray and for new soap viewers to be drawn to the crap! Yes, Y&R is #1 according to the ratings, but can they ever go without saying it? Will they ever have the characters and storylines to be worthy of the ratings?

There have been top grossing movies that were panned by critics and movie-goers alike!

If they can’t get the original Phyllis back then I agree with Linda in Elizabeth Keifer is a great choice. I’ve seen her happy, sad and mean & she is a great actress who can play all parts.

I feel bad what happened to Sharon. Not happy at all. I can’t stand Chelsea and she has no respect for what Chlow has been through. Come on get this Chelsea women gone. I hated she broke up Adam and Sharon.

Why did they interview Steve Burton and now someone more meaningful to the show like Jess Walton or Melody T. Scott?

March 26, 2014 7:41 pm
Reply to  David J.

Why? Because Steve Burton is an actor, on the young and the Restless. who pissed in your cereal this morning. lmao.

I think they are trying to capitalize on Steve Burton’s prior fame from General Hospital. I’m sure they paid him well to make the move, and are trying to get the most out of their buck.

Congratulations Y&R!

Congrats Y&R on 41 years. I guess like any long term relationship we had our up and downs. There been times I wanted to “divorce” you and never watch you again. I haven’t always like the way you changed as you got older. But for better or for worse, I am still here, watching daily. I guess I will watch until death do us part– yours or mine, whichever comes first LOL.

March 26, 2014 1:06 pm

Y&R is not all that good, not at all..
For it to be number one for twenty five years running is not possible, the odds are not there..
I always felt something is not right with Y&R being on top without fail, not even one year down..
(this year ha been a huge yaaaawn horrible lol)

Anyways.. CONGRATS Y&R for lasting 41yrs !!

SuOOOO Everytime I see your posts they are always negatibe. If you don’t like the show don’t watch

March 26, 2014 2:04 pm

Been watching since day 1! Congratulations and thank you for the first 41 years! Cheers and love to all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

March 26, 2014 3:25 pm

You know what? I LOVE Y&R. I love the cast, the characters, the drama, the laughs, the sets and parties…even when I don’t love them as much, I just won’t quit watching.

So when people talk negatively all the time and say they are going to quit watching, I just don’t understand it. What could possibly substitute for these long-running stories and interwoven characters ? The impossible things they do and experience. Sure it’s fantasy but that is 99% of the fun. I enjoy it and hope you do, too! Keep going Y&R 🙂

You are a true fellow Y & R fan…and I think you “get it”! I am grateful to have our soaps. 🙂 Wish someone in my house was as “addicted” as I am so I’d have someone to share this fun with .

I know, Right !? Some people just don’t get it…how much fun it all is. How interesting. And, guess what. It is complete fantasy spun from nothing. It kinda blows my mind that the soap operas do this all year every year. Let’s enjoy 🙂

March 26, 2014 3:28 pm

CONGRATULATIONS TO MY FAVORITE SHOW!!! I hate March Madness because it means I go 5 days in a row without my GC fix! Going five days without it makes me realize just how important that one hour of escape is to me, and I’m forever grateful to the cast and crew that make it happen every Monday through Friday for the fans. Here’s to three more years on top and many more to come!!

I don’t think it’s as good as it once was but it’s number one among what 5 or 6 left? I think B & B will out-do them at some point in the running. They lost to many great actor’s to be no.1 (Phyllis, Billy & Adam) all we’re strong actors with great story lines. They need to bring them back and get rid of the dead wood(Victor,Summer, along with the new Billy)

Oh Fran quit whining, David Tom is doing a terrific job as Billy Abbott. He is the original billy, what is your problem Fran. You sound very miserable. LOL.

March 26, 2014 3:58 pm

Congrats to the young and the Restless, I love sharon nikki, paul and Lauren Fenmore. I want them to cast, Cameron Mathison ex Ryan as the new Adam Newman. He would be great, in the role of the new Adam Newman.

I used to watch The Young and the Restless during school vacations. I haven’t been a loyal viewer for a long time; but, I wish them a lot of success in the future.

CBS interviews Steve Burton for the 41 year celebration and not Victor and Nikki? Haha what a joke! JFP at her finest. Amazing ppl still watch this show.

Maybe they weren’t available for a interview they interviewed LB & TB who have been with the show a long time.

Will you please give DOOL a try?

March 27, 2014 12:20 pm

Happy 41 years! Now get the stories on track.

March 27, 2014 12:46 pm

Congrats for 41 yrs! Oh I get furious at a lot of their stories but they still have a lot of familiar faces after all these years and JFP is using them still in story sure miss seeing Jeanne Cooper great loss!

March 27, 2014 2:23 pm

The show is definitely in a better place than it was a year ago with the new writing team.

I’d be thrilled to read JFP was gone, but in the meantime its fans are sooooooooo
happy that it continues to be #1 even on its 41st year on the air.

I agree with you PatF, the new writing regime has put back the show on track better than it was last year and its becoming entertaining again..JFP aside and all the changes, congrats on 41 years..I am tuning in again and got over my anger, LOL..Here is to many years to come!!!

One big YR family!

Reply to  Omar

I happy to have YR at 41 just because it’s YR. The show is better and am enjoying some stories but I do have a little problem with the balance and some characters. YR does to much stunt casting and clearly some characters aren’t working IE Tyler, Dylan is my big dislike.

Long Live Shick!! Love’em

I’ve watched 41 years and just happy CBS didn’t get rid of all their soaps….boo hoo I miss my CBS lineup.

Breaking News

The New Men of B&B Revealed

The Bold and the Beautiful has been the first soap back in production since COVID-19, and now comes exciting casting news that will surely bring some new energy and drama to the CBS Daytime drama series.

First, the series has decided to recast the role of Zende Forrester Dominquez last played by Daytime Emmy-winner Rome Flynn (2015-2017).   Now Delon de Metz will be taking on the role of adopted son of Kristen Forrester and Tony Dominguez.

And in addition, potentially part of the mystery we alluded to earlier in the week as to just who may be the new man in Steffy Forrester’s  (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) life, may have been answered with the casting of Tanner Novlan in the role of Dr. John ‘Finn’ Finnegan.

Novlan is married to former ‘Bold and Beautiful’ star Kayla Ewell (Ex-Caitlin Ramirez) and has been recently seen in the Liberty Mutual commercials where he plays an actor trying to say the lines of dialog required of him but keeps messing it up.   He was also recently seen in 2019 on the CW’s Roswell, New Mexico series.

TV Line broke the casting news.

So, what are your thoughts of a new Zende and a new doctor coming to The Bold and the Beautiful? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Wally Kurth, Mary Beth Evans & Chandler Massey Take You Behind the Scenes of Kayla and Justin’s Wedding

On Wednesday’s heartbreaking episode of Days of our Lives, viewers saw just how the nuptials of Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Justin (Wally Kurth) eventually wound up!

Justin told Kayla that Steve (Stephen Nichols) still loves her, which put a halt to the proceedings and ended the romantic relationship between the two dear friends, who found love with one another following Adrienne’s (Judi Evans) death, and Kayla believing Steve did not want her back.

Now, The DOOL app has posted a rare behind the scenes view of the making of the wedding – with moments from the key scenes, rehearsals and interviews with the cast involved.

Chandler Massey (Will) weighs-in on Will’s debut as a wedding officiant and how that went south, while Mary Beth Evans and Wally Kurth shared why they loved this storyline so much.

Wally expresses how the last six months have been some of the best storylines of his soap career, while Mary Beth says that Justin and Kayla’s relationship was so adult and that in real life, both actors have known about people who fall in love with their dear friend, after losing their significant other whether it be by divorce, or death, or whatever the circumstance.

If you don’t already have the DOOL app on your mobile device to watch the segment, you can get more info to download here.

We will have more to say on the memorable performances at Michael Fairman TV later in the week.

So, what did you think of Kayla and Justin’s wedding and the fallout? Comment below.
