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.

So, excited to see these episodes and theme weeks of Y&R and B&B? Let us know via the comment section below.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.… Read more »

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.

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!

Ron

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!”

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?
