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.

(Sorry guys, but Peter is my favorite).  I feel blessed to have been part of something so special like The Young and the Restless family.  It’s time to turn the page and see what beautiful stories I am blessed enough to be part of next.  I want to send all my love and positive vibes to the Y&R fans who have been so welcoming since day 1! Appreciate the love and no worries, The Rosales family will still be cooking up some drama in Genoa City, so keeping looking out for them, and showing them all the love they deserve.”
