News – Soap Buzz 0 March 26th, 2018 Y&R Celebrates Its 45th Anniversary Today! EP Mal Young Teases: “We’ve Got Major Storylines Happening And Major Peaks Of What We Have Been Building Up To For Months”

A big congratulations are in order to The Young and the Restless on this Monday, March 26th. For 45 years ago, CBS broadcast the first episode of this juggernaut daytime drama hit series that since 1989 has been the number-one rated soap of them all!

This week, Y&R has plenty in store for fans of the residents of Genoa City with major storyline bombshells and revelations planned after last Friday’s multi-story cliffhanger.

In a videotaped message posted on social media Sunday, Y&R executive producer, Mal Young shared: “This is a huge moment and honor for me, personally. To have the responsibility of overseeing the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of Y&R. The anniversary is on a Monday, but actually it’s all about these five episodes and events that are going to unfold across the five episodes that are going to change lives forever.

We’ve got major storylines happening and major peaks of what we have been building up to for months. So it was important that some of those people came from like Mac (Kelly Kruger) who would actually play into current storylines.

It’s been like a real reunion this week, while we’ve been filming everything. It’s been a joy for everyone, simply meeting each other, after not seeing each other for years. The atmosphere had been exciting an emotional, and I think we’ve got something truly exciting and special for the fans.”

Is Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Coming To The Young and the Restless?

Looks like daytime dramas may have found its next celebrity superfan, or aspiring soap actor.  The lead singer of the iconic rock/alternative band Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong, has posted three different times on his Instagram account – one a video and two photos – that indicate that he may be coming to Genoa City and The Young and the Restless, or perhaps, already taped a guest appearance … or is lobbying to do so?

A few days ago, Armstrong shared a clip from a scene featuring Kyle (Michael Mealor) and Summer (Hunter King) while watching it from a TV.  As fans watch the clip, Armstrong’s voice plays over it saying: “I want to be on a soap opera so bad.”

Then, yesterday, Billie Joe has a pic of the iconic Y&R logo from the soundstages of the series at CBS Television City in Hollywood, and if you look even a bit further back on his IG, there is a photo remake with him in the classic DAYS’ Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams) cover of TIME Magazine!

Y&R’s Camryn Grimes (Mariah Copeland) responded to the video post and related to Armstrong: “This is my show. I am on it please come back and visit for the love of God *deep inhaling but not in a creepy way*.

Y&R’s Eric Braeden “40 Years As Victor Newman” Celebration (PHOTOS)

The stars came out in full for the iconic Eric Braeden’s (Victor Newman) 40th anniversary with The Young and the Restless at a very special on set celebration at CBS Television City in Los Angeles this past Friday (Braeden premiered as Victor back on February 8, 1980).

Attendees ranged from: a “Who’s Who” of Y&R through the years, important friends, colleagues, former co-stars, family, and executives from CBS and the series.

Y&R’s Doug Davidson (Paul) presided over the introduction of various speakers throughout the presentation to Eric.  If anyone could have such a wealth of friends from different walks of life, it’s Eric Braeden.  Even, sports journalist and broadcaster Stephen A. Smith (who is a GH fan and has appeared on that soap) gave a moving speech about how knowing Eric for the last 7 years has meant so much to him.

Former Y&R star and now one of the main men from the hit NBC drama series, This Is Us, Justin Hartley, returned to his old stomping grounds to deliver his thoughts on working with Eric, when he, indeed, played Adam Newman for four years.  In another tender moment, Justin’s successor, Mark Grossman (Adam) took to the podium as the newest member of the grown-up Newman children to honor Eric.

Peter Bergman (Jack) shared a hilarious story from the Daytime Emmys years ago; when he met his favorite singer of all-time, Aretha Franklin, but who he remembers really wanted to know more about Victor Newman, than he, as Jack!  Joshua Morrow (Nick) shared some very funny stories about working with his on-screen dad over the years, while Braeden’s longtime on-screen wife, Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki) shared some very sweet sentiments about her enduring co-star.
