What Is The New Year's Eve Wedding Shocker On The Young and the Restless?

Courtesy/CBS

Courtesy/CBS

A New Year’s Eve in Genoa City is never just walk in the park! In fact, plenty goes down, and as the ball drops and we ring in 2016, looks like 2015 will go out like a lion!

In the latest promo for this week’s Y&R, the guests are assembled for Stitch (Sean Carrigan) and Abby’s (Melissa Ordway) New Year’s Eve wedding! Victor (Eric Braeden) is seen walking his daughter down the aisle, but something goes amiss.  When does it happen? Before the wedding, or after?  While there will be some interesting midnight kisses, and some resolutions, especially one coming from Billy Abbott (Burgess Jenkins), “This will be my last best bet ever,” he exclaims, the citizens of this town have their share of drama set to unfold at the stroke of midnight.

Meanwhile, all signs point to something being amiss with Ashley (Eileen Davidson)!  What does she have to say to Dr. Neville (Michael E. Knight) that may be a game-changer?

Watch the latest CBS Daytime promo after the jump, and then weigh-in! What will be Ashley’s confession? Why are Lauren (Tracey E. Bregman) and Chelsea’s (Melissa Claire Egan) faces looking so stunned (pictured above)?  Is the wedding shocker about Ashley, or something or someone  else?  Share your theories in the comment section below!

Looks like Im a bad influence on you…lol…i like your idea better than mine…i was going to say Ashley’s headaches were cause by a fall out a window and they learn she is has been living a double life…she is a wanted criminal Kristen Dimera!…havent been watching much of these shows lately…only glimpses…had two family emergencies over Christmas and one family member is still in the hospital…ive been ill with the flu and have spent much time in bed but i have some brief good moments to take advantage of to post…later friend!!!

Awwww. So sorry, Jimmy. I’m glad you’re on the mend, though.
I love the Ashley/Kristen connection. That would be the killer of all killers. Imagine that.
Listen up, please get better soon. We need your audacious and so entertaining comments. Please try to have a great and healthy New Year, my friend. Much love.

Going to run with Judy–Neville saves Ashely but is still regarded as the town pariah while Neil is given full credit for saving her life, and is hereby declared Saint Neil.

@Elite.
Oh, my gosh. Really? I feel so guilty and so sorry for Burgess now. I guess he really needs the money. But, at least he’s shopping around for a job ….’cause he ain’t cutting it as an actor. I wish him well.

Ashley collapses, gasp! Gasp! ! $×€£* Dr. Neville can you save her or not? 1)She will come to enough g to insist that the wedding continue because…she’s doing and wants to see her baby happy and begs Ben to make that happen despite their undying love for each other. 2) the wedding is “postponed” until it’s clear Ashley is going to survive. 3) Billy shows up drunk and crashes the scene, literally.

Funny you say that… this is no joke…. I live in Chicago and Burgess was on a commercial the other day for a low end Furniture Store called “The DUMP”… I was literally shocked…. and it was most certainly Burgess….

Saw the Dump commercial too (I also live in Chicago suburbs) and it was Burgess. He was very different from the Billy role. I was glad he found other work.

Seriously speaking? What can be so shocking that we haven’t already suspected? There will be, as usual, a catastrophe with one or all the aforementioned characters, with Dr. Neville smack in the middle of it.
I admire the ‘gods’ for trying to create suspense, but my interest is not whet. Is Ashley dying? Is there a video of Ben snd Ashley in the shower? Is Dr. Neville someone’s list father? Whatever it is, won’t be such a shocker. I hope I am wrong. This show’s tree really needs to be shaken…..I hope my favorite show will not disappoint me.

Timmm

Video in the shower footage would be more likely to happen on GH. Your right CeeCee, its probably a weak teaser to bait us into 2016!

“I can’t believe it’s finally here. My wedding day.”

Please Abby. You have been engaged for a nanosecond. Let’s talk about how it is “finally here” when you have been with a guy for at least a year.

CeeCee
Guest

Lol. Too funny, Chrystie. Perhaps she means A wedding day is finally here……doesn’t matter with whom? Too bad she’s stuck with cantaloupe-head. Or, maybe NOT….. something momentous is about to happen. Oh, joy!!

Ron
Guest
Ron

I’m glad there is an interruption because I for one do not want to see this marriage. Abby does not belong with this “doctor.” Good grief, I can’t stand this character, and the actor can’t keep his head straight for a minute– every single line is delivered with a swaying head. Bugs the crap out of me.

CeeCee

@Ron.
Again…too funny, Ron. Did you notice Ben didn’t even bother shaving on his wedding day? He always looks do scruffy.

Ron

He can’t keep his head straight long enough to shave without needing medical assistance!

Like Mo said, Ian as the preacher and I’m hoping Pattycakes as the organist, Ghost John as the bartender, Marco shows up to cut off Jack’s ear, Murphy shows up and kicks Devon’s azz, Avery Bailey Clark delivers a freshly baked wedding cake, Michael Muhney shows up as a caterer and hits Summer over the head with a chafing dish and luckily Summer already has a sour look on her face to match the pain of the stainless steel dish as it rings off her noggin, Harding’s twin shows up to arrest the real Adam and Victor shaves his mustache.… Read more »

What a body! I forgot ALL about him! Maybe he needs to roll back into town and shake things up! Maybe we will get to see Michael and Lauren then! And Fen, he was on “Under the Dome” this past summer and he was great! Why not bring him back and dump Summer, Stitch, Devon, Marissa and Luca!

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Yeah, Fen turned into a real looker. Yuck, Luca. He doesn’t even look like a Luca. That name is as Spanish as Smith. And Marissa? Yes, she is gorgeous but what’s up with her? I suppose being close to her husband gives her the chance to one day get her daughter back. I cannot wait until peanut-head, Luca leaves. Of all the tycoons in the US to choose, they chose a Spaniard who looks nothing like a Spaniard with an Italian name? Spain is not exactly up there with lucrative businessmen roaming about, these days. You had mentioned on a… Read more »

Whatever it is, Charles Pratt came up with it, so it won’t be good. Sorry, but Dr. Neville is a stupid character. I’m sure Ashley has health insurance, why would you put your life in the hands of a quack rather than professionals. It doesn’t make sense. Michael E. Knight must be hard up to take on this dreadful role.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Lol, Joe. Haven’t you heard? Dr. Neville has been working on this miracle drug for eons. Hilary was his Guinea pig. That is the purpose for this character. Lol.
Of course, I agree with you, Joe. So sad to see these iconic actors/actresses being used as a means to an end, almost in a caricaturist manner.

When will Lauren and Michael remarry?

I did not realize they were divorced. When did that happen? Where have I been? I seriously did not know, Mo.

Mo
Guest
Mo

They divorced a while ago when Michael was going through his cancer (which apparently has been cured offscreen) and he was afraid he couldn’t be a ‘real’ husband to Lauren so he let her go. He was trying to get Lauren and Cane together and that’s what pushed Lily into Joe’s bed (she thought Cane cheated on her). They have since gotten back together and I believe they live together, but are still unmarried–unless that too happened offscreen. Maybe Y&R thought we all forgot these two are divorced.

Mo, I thought the final drafts of the divorce papers were never signed.

Okay am I the only soap fan out there who is sick of the word “shocker”? In most cases the shocker isn’t really shocking, but just PR spin trying to create buzz for stories that are simply not well written. It seems nowadays no one wants to watch anything unless there is something that can trend on social media the next day, so everything has to be hyped up to sound far more exciting than it is just to get a once of attention. There was a time people would just tune in because they liked the show, not because… Read more »

2015 Soap Story of the Year: Producers forcing soap writers to ask the WGA for waivers. The contract requires writers to be given one assignment a week. With a waiver, a writer is forced to give up a script or two a month for 52 weeks. This results in less work and a smaller paycheck. Complaints have been lodged but there is not much the WGA can do. List of Soap Writers: head writer, associate writers, breakdown writers, scriptwriters, and a script editor. Learned that each associate writer is required to write for one day in each week. Scriptwriters write… Read more »

Thanks for the info– this might explain why soaps right now seem to be written all over the map with no real flow between scripts– it is good to know even the writers aren’t thrill with this set up. Sometimes as viewers we like to blame the writers for all the ills of the genre, but as you pointed out here, they have there own struggles with management. I suppose the days when soaps were written and produced by the same person who created the show are long gone and so are stories that were creatively and intelligently woven together… Read more »

Each network has or had a training program for writers interested in writing for the soaps. CBS (Daytime Writers Initiative Program), ABC (Daytime Writers Development Program) and NBC (NBC-TV Daytime Writers Development Program). There is no guarantee of a job after the program has been completed. Comment Reference: Web article by Julie Poll “My Life Writing for the Soaps” NYCityWoman.com

The picture of Lauren and Chelsea can’t be from the episodes because Lauren left the wedding (Why? I know, for Fenmores, but why did the writers do this?) and Chelsea’s hair is tucked up to a bob for the wedding.

I watched the recorded show from yesterday, and had a hard time understanding how anyone at CBS would let that enormous amount of talent be wasted at the hands of Chuck Pratt. When I saw the wedding scene and saw all the actors relegated to crap, I realized that Y&R has become just like every other soap (minus B&B) with the new merry-go-round of hack writers and producers. When I saw Lucky Gold’s name in the credits, I knew the ship had sprung a leak. Y&R maintained itself based on writers who knew (or created) these characters, now it’s just… Read more »

Somewhere in all these fun comments someone mentioned that Billy’s acting had picked up subsequent to the announcement that he was leaving the program. I agree. Common sense says my next comment is in the minority, however, Billy was growing on me. He was probably an unfortunate choice after Billy Miller. It was difficult to slip into that role when the first appearance of new Billy was so startlingly different. Anyway, I wish him the best. He deserves better than selling furniture. Lillian’s comments are quite telling. Quality has little to do with the given incentives; just numbers. Of course… Read more »

Much ado about nothing! Do we not recall the anticlimactic Feb., Nov. sweep fiascos?
Soaps have become sad ‘rinse/repeat’ TV. None are imaginative enough to evolve; try something new – like emotionally intelligent adults.

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin & Ana Navarro Test Positive for COVID-19; Asked to Leave Studio Ahead Of V.P. Kamala Harris Interview

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.
