On Friday’s episode of CBS’ The Talk, the afternoon series welcomed Y&R stars, Jess Walton (Jill), Sharon Case (Sharon) and Joshua Morrow (Nick) to discuss the soaps streak of 30 years at #1, plus what fans can expect next in the J.T. murder storyline.

Jess Walton recalled when the show first became number one, and why it did, relating:  “I remember thinking how good our show was at putting the storylines together, combining them, so that all the climaxes … the cliffhangers …  it wasn’t just one climax and one storyline, it affected every storyline.”

As to why over the years she thinks Y&R has remained at the top, Jess explained it is the fans who are paramount to the success of the show:  “You know what it is? It’s the fans. The fans, I mean, we are like your family, and you feel like our family. And that’s what soap opera is based on, the multi-generational family.”

When the ladies of The Talk asked Sharon Case if she screen-tested with Joshua Morrow over 25 years ago to land the role of Sharon, she revealed: “Joshua started working there a few months before me, so when I came along and I screen-tested, Joshua did the screen tests for all the girls trying out that day.”

Morrow added, “We had a couple of ‘Sharons’ before the real Sharon came along, and I knew right away.  I was screen-testing with these others …  and Sharon just nailed it.  I was like, ‘That’s the one.'”  In additin, the duo discuss “Shick” and Phick” fandom, and Joshua talks about working with soap icon, Eric Braeden (Victor), as his on-screen dad.

Later, Sharon dishes on “J.T.’s” murder plot: “These women are keeping a secret. They really don’t like each other, so they’ve had to trust each other a lot this last year, keeping the secret. But, there’s chinks in the armor that are coming; they’re starting to break.”

Watch two clips from the aforementioned segment featuring Walton, Case, and Morrow on The Talk below.  Then, let us know, why you think Y&R has remained number one for 30 years? If you are team #Shick or #Phick?  What you think will happen next in the J.T. murder storyline?  Share your thoughts to these questions via the comment section below.

“Y & R” is a dumpster fire under Mal Young – cannot wait until Josh Griffith’s material starts airing and Mal Young becomes a distant memory!!!

I could not watch ONE second of the clip because of Osborne and Underwood. TWO of the most annoying things on TV!
