I will miss seeing her on the show it’s really sad what has happen and my thoughts and prayers go out to the whole Y&R staff. I have been blessed to have started my own photo album of the Y&R that I have had since I was a teen. It won’t be the same with out her on the show. Much love from Brighton Tennessee

Watching it now and all I can say is ‘BEAUTIFUL’…………….

It was beautifull!! I was worried about how it would be done, but they did a great job. I feel like i know who she was, alot like Mrs. C. They will both be miss.

It was beautifully simple and wonderfully touching. Kudos to whomever found vintage footage of Jeanne with newly the arrived Victor Newman and her first encounter with Lauren Fenmore! (My only complaint is John McCook inferring he was already in place when Jeanne arrived; he actually joined the show 3+ years after Jeanne.) Great job!

loved her so much and this show have been watching for years miss you love you RIP

it was very well put together!

My only disappointment was that is was not longer- there were obviously some stories being told about her that were cut off that I would have love to heard the whole thing. It would be great if they compile a DVD on all the stories shot that day in their entirety; didn’t mind the edited version, just wanted more. Love the early shots of her, she was gorgeous in her youth, stunning in womanhood, and simply beautiful in her golden years. Rest in peace — we will missed your presence, but your spirit will always be with us.

Wonderfully said!!

So well done… a beautiful tribute to such a special lady!!! I loved and wished it could have been 2 hours!!! How fabulous to see her castmasts all thinking they had their own unique and special relationship with Jeanne!!! I wish I had been lucky enough to meet her. She sounds like she really loved and appreciated her fans and that is so lovely. They really had a great mix of her speaking, clips, cast members speaking and finally her kids… very touching and truly a celebration and a tribute to the star of Y&R!!! Jeanne you will be missed… but we have so many memories!!! Thank you Jeanne for all the years of you being you or Katherine or whomever you played… we loved every minute!!!

What a wonderful tribute to a great lady. Thank you to CBS for taking the time to acknowledge her contribution to the entertainment world.

What an incredible tribute !!
I watched from Canada on time shift 3x….and cried throughout every time.
It was wonderful to see Jeanne Cooper in flashback scenes.
I started watching Y&R in summer of 1976 as a 13 year old.
I always thought Jeanne Cooper epitomized absolute class and grit.
Katherine Chancellor’s relationship with Jill Abbott was ‘the relationship’.
A real Super Couple.
It was so fitting that her last scenes were with Jill – and the last scene in the tribute was given to Jess Walton.
I hope Katherine Chancellor’s presence will be felt in storyline for years to come.
Rest in peace Jeanne Cooper….well done,well done !!

i cried! it was very touching!

CBS…Thank you so much for this “AWESOME” tribute to Ms. Jeanne Cooper. Have watched the show for many years, like so many others. Icon she was. Others have said it so well. Not much more to say….Ms. Cooper may you now rest. Job well done!!You have left behind so much to so many. Thank you from all of us!! XO

Heart-warming/Heart-breaking. Was not ready to lose this wonderful woman who has been in my life since I was 14 years old. This old world is changing & I am not sure how much I like it.

Need to clarify, 13 years old-1973 Y&R debuted & I was 13 so she was a part of my life since then. FORTY YEARS!

We were honored to have our song chosen for the photo montage –
Joel & Byron

Was this not just a beautiful day for this magnificent woman…I’ve watched 3 times now, enjoying all the tweets coming into CBS, it was nothing like daytime has ever seen past or future, a true legend of daytime genre….Great day for daytime!

With all that was said about Stephen Nichols head being cropped from the cast photo, it was very nice to see him included in the tribute. I was also glad to see Tricia Cast included, considering she lives out of state. She was probably in town for the funeral and stayed with Lauralee Bell, but the fact that she was there was really nice.

It seems to me that they really thought about who shared scenes with Jeanne. I thought it was a very lovely tribute to an amazing woman.

Absolutely wonderful. Something I’ll watch more than once. It was indeed a great day for daytime.

Saw some of it and it was heartbreaking to see Jess at the end. I’m going to put it on DVD so I have a copy of it.

Wonderful show, just curious what name did Jeanne call Christian LeBlanc?

It went so fast, but I thought he tried to say “little sh–.”

So very well done. I was surprised at the quality and emotion. Balanced program and such a gift to us as fans. Well done, CBS! This was a real treat for us.

Well done tribute to Jeanne Cooper and her role in making the show what it is!

I think it was touching and beautiful, classy and full of warmth just like her. I have to congratulate TPTB at Y&R, Sony and CBS for getting it and doing it right. Jeanne Cooper deserved this tribute. So often the stars of daytime who pass away get little more than a nod. Taking an entire show and allowing family and cast members to break that fourth wall and share was outstanding! Thank you to all who participated. Those of us on this side of the camera share in your loss.

What can a person say about Jeanne Cooper and the loss of her to this show? It’s hard to sum up in words what it will mean. Here is a woman whom I’ve spent every day of my adult life with: crying, laughing, celebrating…… day in, and day out. I’m 42 and will forever miss seeing that brilliant woman light up my screen…. giving everything she had. God Bless you, Jeanne…… and thank you.

Thank you for a a moving tribute, Y&R; especially at the end, with her omni-present tea cup and jewels; perfection…. just like Jeanne.


Y&R’s Courtney Hope Gives Update Following Car Accident & Turning the Situation into a Positive

The Young and the Restless star Courtney Hope (Sally Spectra) revealed she had been in a car accident near the Harry Houdini Estate in the Hollywood Hills on Monday, December 4th.

Taking to her Instagram story at the time, she wanted to let people know that both she and the people inside the other car were okay.  Hope, who plays Sally Spectra on the CBS daytime drama series, expressed that that while the  incident was a “heavy moment” it wound up being “positive and overwhelmingly beautiful.”

She went on to state, “It ended up being hanging out with the guy (other driver) and his family, and my family, and people that witnessed that stayed for hours and workers and neighbors.”

Making this all the more crazy as Hope explained, “Oprah (Winfrey’s) team was at the Houdini house and them coming down, and it was like, by the end we were like, laughing and taking photos.  I know that sounds absolutely crazy and ridiculous, but I was in shock of how, in such a really heavy moment, something beautiful can come out of it. Honestly, like all that mattered was that we were all okay.”

The actress added, “By the end of the encounter we were exchanging numbers and taking photos. I’m so thankful for that experience.”

Always trying to look at the positive of life, Hope added, “I don’t know if our cars are totaled.”  However, she did share she needed a rental car but found the positive in that sharing a photo of a keychain hanging off the steering wheel that read: “LUV is in the air”

Courtney first played the role of Sally Spectra on The Bold and the Beautiful from 2017 till August of 2020, and then joined The Young and the Restless in the same role later in 2020.

Send your well-wishes Courtney’s way that nothing more serious happened from the car incident via the comment section below.

Kimberly McCullough Shares Remembrance of the Late TV Legend Norman Lear on the Set of ‘One Day At a Time’

Television legend, Norman Lear passed away on Wednesday at the age of 101 years old. The comedy genius who created, wrote and produced some of the greatest sitcoms of all time died of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

Lear’s body of work included: All in the Family, One Day at a Time, Maude, The Jeffersons and Good Times, Sanford & Son, plus the soapy, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman.

General Hospital’s beloved Kimberly McCullough (Robin) has been working as a director in the television industry for years now and upon learning the news of Lear’s passing, shared a very touching moment via her Instagram that stayed with her through her directorial career. McCullough had been a director on the reboot of One Day at a Time that featured EGOT winner, Rita Moreno.

McCullough expressed: “My hat goes off to your, sir Norman. What a wonderful life you lived. In my very first directing job, only 6 weeks after having a baby, I was feeling fragile and not quite ready to get back to work. On the set of One Day At A Time, you squeezed my chin and said ‘Look at you! A baby directing our show.’ It wasn’t condescending at all. In fact you seemed thrilled by how far we’d come in the industry, giving young women a seat at the table. I replied, ‘I’m not a baby. I just had a baby.”‘

McCullough added: “You gave me nod of approval saying, ‘Even better. You let me know if you need anything.’ That meant the world to me. Thank you for your service of the television industry, of our country and being a stand up human. #ripnormanlear”

In a previous post pictured with Norman Lear, Kimberly shared: “Thank you changing the world with your storytelling. Honored to say I’ve been able to work with you. One time I heard you say “but where is the HEART of the story?” I have a feeling you’ve asked that question a lot…”

The Lear family also put out this statement on the death of the iconic TV genius: “Thank you for the moving outpouring of love and support in honor of our wonderful husband, father, and grandfather,” the Lear family said in a statement. “Norman lived a life of creativity, tenacity, and empathy. He deeply loved our country and spent a lifetime helping to preserve its founding ideals of justice and equality for all. Knowing and loving him has been the greatest of gifts. We ask for your understanding as we mourn privately in celebration of this remarkable human being.”

Tonight, across all network television, an in memoriam card will air at 8PM ET/PT to pay tribute to Lear and acknowledging his influence in the medium.
