He is multi-Daytime Emmy winning actor, who is synonymous with daytime drama, and now he is about to achieve another milestone in his career.  Of course, we are talking about The Young and the Restless’ Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott).

Bergman is set to celebrate his 30th anniversary with the top-rated soap when he was first introduced to viewers in the role back on November 27th, 1989.  In his honor, the series is delivering a special episode to air on Monday, November 25th.

In the episode, Jack takes a walk down memory lane as he reads his sister’s, Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland), family memoir, that details the triumphs and tragedies of the iconic Abbott family.  Also, viewers will be treated to classic clips and appearances from the Abbott family, including fan favorites Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) and Maitland.

Bergman shares his sentiments in a statement:  “It’s been a real joy for me, to retrace Jack’s footsteps over the last 30 years. I am struck by the enduring friendships I have made at Y&R, and deeply grateful to our fans, who have stood by Jack, cheered him on, or waited patiently for him to get his act together…for three decades!  I’m happy, amazed and truly thankful…and it sure feels good. Thank you one and all.”

During his 40 years in daytime television, including 10 years as Dr. Cliff Warner on All My Children, Bergman has received 21 Emmy Award nominations for Lead Actor, and won three times.  In addition, Peter took home two Soap Opera Digest awards for Lead Actor, as well as three Soap Opera Update MVP Awards throughout his soap performances, making Peter the most decorated actor in Y&R history.

Bergman got emotional on today’s November 15th episode of The Talk sharing his love for his co-stars and the Abbott family.  Watch the clip below.

Now let us know, if you are excited to see the Jack Abbott episode coming up on Y&R via the comment section for Peter’s 30 years in Genoa City.

I agree with you Kay. The Abbott’s always, in my opinion, bought class to Geona City. I am looking forward to his stand alone show. It will be nice to see the Abbott’s in their prime. Especially good old John. Thanks for listening and happy viewing

Me, too, DMRR! (Remember Cliff and Nina’s gorgeous wedding?? That, and Bergman’s classic Vicks Formula 44 commercial, “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on tv”…Lol….) Hence for me, Peter will always be Dr. Cliff Warner, just as the late, great Terry Lester will always be the REAL Jack Abbott!!

I loved Terry Lester. He was one of the two reasons I started watching the show. The other was all the wonderful cat fights Tracy and Lauren had first over Danny and than Brad. Ah the good old days

Congratulations to an amazing actor! I am a huge Peter Bergman fan – he is my favourite actor and Jack my favourite character on Y&R. I also happen to think he’s the best actor on the show.

Friday night, the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ (NATAS) 49th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were handed out in 15 categories on a live telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.  When the dust settled, it was ABC’s General Hospital who took the night’s top prize for Outstanding Daytime Drama Series.

This marks GH’s continued record-breaking number of wins in this category and brings it up to 15 victories for the iconic show, which is currently in its 59th year on the air.  GH’s executive producer, Frank Valentini accepted the award on behalf of everyone connected with the show, when Drew Barrymore presented the final award of the night.

The night also brought with it the historic win of The Young and the Restless’ Mishael Morgan (Amanda Sinclair). The actress became the first black actress in Daytime Emmy history to ever take home the Lead Actress Daytime Emmy.  In the emotional highpoint of the evening, in terms of acceptance speeches and significance, Morgan spoke to the current generation breaking glass ceilings.

Morgan expressed: “We are breaking glass ceilings left right and center and I am so honored to be a vessel and to experience this moment. Everybody out there today, we can do this thing called equality and unity together.”  In her speech, Mishael shared: “I was born on a tiny island in the Caribbean, and I’m now standing on an international stage and I am being honored regardless of the color of my skin, regardless of my passport, for being the best at what I do, Now there are little girls around the world and no matter what the industry, the vocation they can strive to be the best.”

Veteran actor, John McCook who has played Eric Forrrester on The Bold and the Beautiful for over 35 years, finally won his first ever Emmy after four previous nominations in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

The Supporting Actor and Actress in a Drama Series trophies went to two standouts from General Hospital, Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) and Jeff Kober (Cyrus), while Nicholas Alexander Chavez (Spencer), added another mantle to the GH trophy case with his first win for Outstanding Younger Performer.

Days of our Lives writing team led by Ron Carlivati took home the gold for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series, while GH won for Direction.

The biggest winner in terms of total gold belonged to The Kelly Clarkson Show. When all was said and done, between the Creative Arts ceremonies held last weekend, and last night, the talk show took home 7 awards including: Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show and Talk Show Host. General Hospital followed with five total wins for Daytime Emmys 2022.

The ceremonies featured DAYS Suzanne Rogers (Maggie) anchoring the Lifetime Achievement Award presentation to her longtime co-star John Aniston (Victor), who was not present, with the help of John’s daughter, Jennifer Aniston, who was seen on tape.

Susan Lucci (Ex-Erica, All My Children) made her first public appearance since the passing of her beloved husband, Helmut Huber and introduced the In Memoriam segment.  Grammy-winner Michael Bolton performed his classic tune “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” during the tribute.

Entertainment Tonight’s Kevin Frazier and Nischelle Turner were the hosts for the telecast, and with the overturning of the Supreme Court Roe vs. Wade decision on everyone’s mind last night, Turner gave a nod to how she and so many others felt, when Frazier told her how nice she looked in her dress. Nishcelle commented, “I chose this dress. It was my choice.”  That moment received huge applause from the audience in attendance.
