The next set of CBS Daytime’s theme weeks have been revealed for The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.  Both shows have run out of current episode due to the coronavirus pandemic, and until production resumes the network is airing sets of classic episodes for fans to enjoy once again, or for the first time.

For the week of May 18th, it will be “Winters Week” on Y&R with the following classic episodes featuring the late Kristoff St. John (Ex-Neil), Shemar Moore (Ex-Malcolm), Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla), Christel Khail(Lily), Bryton James (Devon) and more.  Look for this line-up:

On Monday, May 18, Kristoff St. John makes his Y&R debut when Drucilla (Victoria Rowell) crosses paths with a newly hired Neil Winters (St. John) at Jabot. Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) receives disturbing news about Brock (Beau Kazer), and Olivia (Tonya Lee Williams) and Nate (Nathan Purdee) share a difference of opinion. The episode originally aired Feb. 13, 1991.

On Tuesday, May 19, Neil’s (St. John) estranged brother, Malcolm (Shemar Moore, in his first appearance on Y&R), arrives in Genoa City; Cricket (Lauralee Bell) faces a tough battle in court; and Victor (Eric Braeden) takes a leap of faith to help Hope (Signy Coleman). The episode originally aired May 6, 1994.

On Wednesday, May 20, the Winters family comes to Devon’s (Bryton James) rescue; Kevin (Greg Rikaart) turns over a new leaf; and Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) makes a confession to Bobby Marsino (John Enos). The episode originally aired Feb. 9, 2005.

On Thursday, May 21, Neil (St. John) searches for Lily (Christel Khalil) and Daniel (Michael Graziadei) in California with Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) and Nick (Joshua Morrow), while Drucilla (Rowell) stands her ground with Malcolm (Moore) back home, and Michael (Christian Le Blanc) learns of Ashley’s (Eileen Davidson) connection to Tom Fisher (Roscoe Born). The episode originally aired June 29, 2005.

On Friday, May 22, Neil (St. John) and Drucilla’s (Rowell) adoption of Devon (James) is official; Jack (Peter Bergman) and Ashley (Davidson) plot to keep Gloria (Judith Chapman) in line; and Jill (Walton) searches for answers about her past.  The episode originally aired Dec. 7, 2006.

On The Bold and the Beautiful, it will be a week-long look into their enduring classic leading lady, Brooke Logan Forrester (Katherine Kelly Lang).  Here’s some memorable episodes on tap:

On Monday, May 18, after their fairy-tale wedding, Eric (original cast member John McCook) whisks Brooke (original cast member Katherine Kelly Lang) away on their honeymoon in a beautiful hot air balloon and then on a romantic ride through the Southern California desert on horseback. Eric winds down their magical day by surprising his new bride with a lavish desert oasis where they will celebrate being Mr. and Mrs. Eric Forrester. Meanwhile, Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss) attempts to convince Stephanie (Susan Flannery) to let go of her animosity towards her ex-husband’s sexy, young wife and get on with her life. The episode originally aired Jan. 9, 1991.

On Tuesday, May 19, after a run-in with Taylor (Hunter Tylo) over Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss), Brooke (Lang) concocts a plan to shock both Taylor and Stephanie (Flannery) at the press conference announcing Forrester Creations’ newest line, “Brooke’s Bedroom.” With the help of Lauren Fenmore (Tracey Bregman), Brooke surprises the Forresters and the press by appearing in sexy lingerie on top of a bed in the Forrester Showroom. Watching on the Fashion Channel from home, Taylor, Ridge’s current wife, is mortified when Brooke describes the line as the “legacy of Ridge Forrester and Brooke Logan.” The episode originally aired Dec. 11, 1998.

Then on Wednesday, May 20, in B&B’s special 5000th episode, Brooke (Lang) waits outside the Forresters’ Big Bear cabin for Ridge (then played by Ronn Moss), reluctant to go in by herself given her history with Stephanie (Susan Flannery). Once inside, a temporary truce is called and the four original B&B characters, Brooke, Ridge, Eric (McCook) and Stephanie, share memories of their personal and professional ups and downs through the years, including the first time Brooke met the Forresters in 1987. The episode originally aired Feb. 16, 2007.

On Thursday, May 21, Brooke (Lang) and Nick (Wagner) exchange vows with one another in a beautiful park in front of the ocean before sailing away to their honeymoon on Nick’s boat at sunset. Jackie (Lesley-Anne Down) worries that Brooke’s daughter, Bridget (Ashley Jones), still has feelings for Nick. The episode originally aired July 7, 2006.

Rounding out the week on Friday, May 22, Eric (McCook) gives Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) a rundown of what Brooke (Lang) has been up to since he’s been gone, but is careful not to mention Bill Spencer (Don Diamont). In an epic and romantic reunion, Brooke imagines seeing Ridge at the water staircase only to realize that it isn’t a dream and he’s standing before her holding a single rose. The episode originally aired Dec. 19, 2013.

Nice to see the much missed classic days of the Winters clan!
The standout episodes for me from those days was :
1. Malcolm sleeps with a medicated Dru and she mistakes him for Neil
2. Olivia confronts Keisha whos having an affair with Nate who has Aids. Powerhouse acting from Tonya Lee Williams!!
3. Lily finds out her real paternity. Then played by imo my preferred Lily, Davetta Sherwood.
Would ve prefered any of those major moments over the Devon eppys, boring and blah as they were when it first aired.

Oh how I wish they would show THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS episodes from the 1970’s…especially with my favourite veiled lady, Vanessa Prentiss! It was wonderful seeing her a week ago Monday, but it was after her facial surgery so no veil! I remember the week she plotted to shoot Lauralee Brooks and ended up shooting her own son on the Friday episode so vividly even to this day. Run two of the half hour episodes to make up the hour! The Brooks and Foster families…Ron Becker and his attack on Peggy Brooks thinking she was her sister, Chris. So many beautifully written stories by our beloved late Bill Bell…X

I’m with you 100%– show two combined episodes of those half-hour episodes! What a treat it will be. I have to say that it’s clear, when watching a week’s worth of episodes, how the show has digressed from those 80s and 90s episodes into the 2000s. Long story short here– met Bill and Kay in Chicago while I was in college creative writing course. Bill named Becker after me. Sounded good at first! My parents weren’t too thrilled.

OMSTARS! That is amazing! Yes, I can understand why your parents weren’t happy about that, considering Ron Becker was a rapist who drove his wife, Nancy, off the deep end. I remember once that Cathy Carricaburu…who played Nancy…said that when she was in the sanitarium as Nancy that they would mat up her hair with Dippidy Do! I LOVE knowing this small bit of trivia as to where Ron Becker got his name! Cheers! X

Thanks. I learned a lot from Bill Bell and certainly miss his skills. I can also tell you that Kay Alden cried while typing scenes and that Bill got on the phone to Los Angeles while watching the show to applaud production and to gripe when lighting could be seen in the background. Cheers to you as well.

WOW! I am loving our natter so much here online. I really appreciate your ‘behind the scenes’ information. I have been watching THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS clips I have found at YOU TUBE at the week end when Brenda Dickinson was playing Jill. Also got to see the wonderful Terry Lester in action as well as our Jack Abbott. Those were such amazing times in Genoa City! By the way, I do hope you have continued your own writing career and that it is going well. Wish you could bring your own ‘Bill Bell inspired writing skills’ to the programme. I’m sure you could bring our beloved story back to its former glory! Have a very Blessed and magical day, mate! Cheers!! XX

Eden, You made me curious about your whereabouts– MATE? Interesting word selection. When I was young, I thought I would be writing scripts, but I also had a love for journalism. Torn between them as well as teaching, Bill gave me sage advice. He told me, “Go and live! Experience life so you can write about it.” To sum it up, I had the best of 4 worlds in one career: I taught Creative Writing, Journalism and Film– and got to coach– for 30 years, while doing writing on the side. It’s amazing how a few words from one person can truly affect your life. Take care and I’ll be looking for you on these boards. Blessings to you and be safe, from the Chicago suburbs!

Hiya! Ta so much for your reply. I love hearing about your life as writer and teacher. Bill Bell was so correct about life experience. What a lovely memory you will always carry with you. Manchester, UK is my home turf since you asked and it is always lovely to have a bit of a natter here online with you. You and yours stay safe, be well and be very, very Blessed everafter! Cheers! X
PS…I hope I did not upset you by writing ‘mate’ in my last post. I do not expect that I did, but just in case. Besides, as you have probably heard, we British apologize constantly for everything! 0;-)

No offense taken at all and no apology necessary. Words are my business

B&B’s choices week after week are completely ridiculous. There’s so much better stuff to choose from and all selections should be from the 80’s and 90’s, that’s what’s interesting to watch, not episodes from the past decade.

I agree. We get enough Liam Steffy Hope. No need to revisit. Give me a Stephanie Forrester monologue. Give me Sally Spectra comedy. Keep this tired LSH triangle.

Totally agree!

Looking forward to Winters Week as most I haven’t seen. I’ve seen some of Brooke’s episodes, but I’ll still be watching.

Wish them the best ! I think the virus hit the writers years ago. I lost my sister to Alzheimer’s two weeks ago she had a tough journey so never going to come back just don’t have the energy anymore and the governor of California has made it political how sad for the American people that you would bring a country down because you hate our president I hope and pray that our nation sees this for what it is ! God bless all of you !

OMG, I cannot even handle first run Devon stories, no way am i looking a this weeks show!

Timmm! The Monday and Tuesday episodes were wonderfully done– the early 90s when there were at least 4 unique storylines taking place each episode– you really don’t know which is the most interesting! Dru/Neil meeting on Monday was terrific and yesterday Malcolm shows up for the first time… these were only a couple of scenes each program. But, as I have seen the past couple of weeks, each day that passes, when you start watching the shows from the 2000s, it’s downhill faster than an Olympic skier! I will fast forward Devon scenes.

Thanks Ron. You are correct. I should have taped the shows and burned through the Devon crap! I like Lilly and liked Neil. And yes, there were other stories being told. I cannot wait for next week, its “Villain’s Week!”

‘Santa Barbara’ Episodes May See Light of Day Yet; Will the Beloved Soap Opera Come to Streaming?

For decades, soap opera fans around the world have wanted a chance to see Santa Barbara episodes again. The soap, which first aired on NBC back on July 30, 1984 aired for only 9 seasons until the network pulled the plug after diminishing ratings and multiple changes in writing and producing regimes. The show last aired on January 15th, 1993.

Santa Barbara was co-created and initially produced and co-written by the legendary team of Bridget and Jerome Dobson. At the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmys, Jerome was honored with the Gold Circle medal for his over 50 years of work and accomplishments within the medium. Sadly his wife, Bridget passed away earlier this year in January at the age of 85.

The show featured an all-star soap cast throughout its run which included, at times: Marcy Walker, A Martinez, Dame Judith Anderson, Robin Wright, Justin Deas, Eileen Davidson, Lane Davies, Nancy Lee Grahn, Kim Zimmer, Jack Wagner, Jed Allan, Louise Sorel. Judith McConnell, Roscoe Born, Sydney Penny, Todd McKee, Terry Lester, Justin Gocke, Nicolas Coster and many more.

During a livestream conversation on Friday, June 21st, Jerome Dobson and A Martinez visited the Michael Fairman Channel to reminisce about the success and ups and downs of Santa Barbara and much more.

Many people in the live chat and many around the world (Santa Barbara was very popular internationally) have wanted to know with the legal issues it appears had plagued the show for years, if there would be a chance that fans could ever see Santa Barbara episodes again, and if they could become available or streamed?

Dobson shared exclusively, “Well, there’s some legal footwork being done right now about that kind of possibility. There’s been so much demand to see Santa Barbara, and so it’s not totally out of the question.” Martinez (ex-Cruz Castillo) reaction to that possibility was that of “Wow!” That was also the same reaction by several viewers watching the live conversation in the chat, because that would be a soap dream come true for many.

So, do you hope that the legalities can finally be worked out and you could relive the seasons of ‘Santa Barbara’ all over again? Let us know in the comment section below. You can check out the live chat with A and Jerome below, the moment happens around the 56:18 mark.

Trevor St. John Announces His Departure from The Young and the Restless

In a shocker, Trevor St. John revealed on Tuesday that he is leaving the cast of The Young and the Restless and his role as Tucker McCall.

The popular actor took to his account on X and in a series of posts said his “thank you’s” and bid farewell to the top-rated soap opera.

St. John shared, “As you well know, Tuckers come and Tuckers go, and so the cycle continues… this Tucker is in his go phase… I thank each and every member of the wonderful cast, the crew, the directors, the producers and production staff, and CBS/Sony for the great experience from day one to the last.

Trevor continued: “Most importantly, I want to offer my heartfelt gratitude to you the (Y&R) fans. THANK YOU!” Tucker might be gone for the time being, but I’m not going anywhere. I’ve got projects in the works, and if you haven’t seen my film, A Good Enough Day, it’s now available to stream for free on Tubi!”

No word from St. John or Y&R as to when his last episode will air on the top-rated soap opera.  In story, Tucker is losing his company to a takeover by Audra and Victor, while Ashley is finally getting help she needs after her personality split.

So, what do you think about Trevor’s departure from Y&R? Comment below.
