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.”

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.

Is Phick About To Reignite On The Young and the Restless?

Well, Phick fans you may get your wish after all, or will you?  The stage is set for Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) to seduce her former flame, Nick Newman (Joshua Newman), or might he seduce her? Hmmm.  These are the questions that may be answered next week on upcoming episodes of CBS Daytime’s, The Young and the Restless.

In the latest preview for next week in Genoa City. Adam (Mark Grossman), who wants to get closer to Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Nick out of the picture, gets his scheming partner, Phyllis over to his penthouse for a chat.

Seems like Adam has a proposition for her. He wants Phyllis to seduce Nick so they can both get what they want.  But … we know Phyllis doesn’t like to be played; especially by some guy who wants her to do his bidding.

But, one can’t help but wonder  …after their recent flirty conversations, if Phyllis doesn’t truly want Nick and to spark the flame that is Phick?

One thing is for sure; having Michelle Stafford back on Y&R it would make plenty of sense for the writers to go down that sexy and romantic road, knowing the success of the pairing that Morrow and Stafford had previously.

Angelica Rosas McDaniel (Ex-CBS Daytime Exec) “Last night we lost a light in this world with the passing of Lisa De Cazotte.

Michael Logan (Former TV Guide Columnist): “RIP Lisa de Cazotte, one of the truly great soap producers. A real nose-to-the-grindstone talent, she never wanted personal glory choosing instead to do the work, quietly and fabulously. Her partnership with James E. Reilly on #Passions was epic.”
