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!

Y & R….Boooooooooooooring since Michael Muhney, Michelle Stafford & Billy Miller are gone…….

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.

Yawn..still boring..no 1 doesn’t mean it’s the best that’s for sure…

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?

Helen

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.

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.

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 !!

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 🙂

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!!

Feel the same way 🙂

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)

Claudio

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.

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.

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.

CONGRATS!

Omar

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!

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.
