Y&R Celebrates Its 45th Anniversary Today! EP Mal Young Teases: "We’ve Got Major Storylines Happening And Major Peaks Of What We Have Been Building Up To For Months"

A big congratulations are in order to The Young and the Restless on this Monday, March 26th. For 45 years ago, CBS broadcast the first episode of this juggernaut daytime drama hit series that since 1989 has been the number-one rated soap of them all!

This week, Y&R has plenty in store for fans of the residents of Genoa City with major storyline bombshells and revelations planned after last Friday’s multi-story cliffhanger.

In a videotaped message posted on social media Sunday, Y&R executive producer, Mal Young shared: “This is a huge moment and honor for me, personally. To have the responsibility of overseeing the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of Y&R.  The anniversary is on a Monday, but actually it’s all about these five episodes and events that are going to unfold across the five episodes that are going to change lives forever.

We’ve got major storylines happening and major peaks of what we have been building up to for months.  So it was important that some of those people came from like Mac (Kelly Kruger) who would actually play into current storylines.

It’s been like a real reunion this week, while we’ve been filming everything.  It’s been a joy for everyone, simply meeting each other, after not seeing each other for years. The atmosphere had been exciting an emotional, and I think we’ve got something truly exciting and special for the fans.”

So get ready for the celebration of Y&R 45! It all kicks-off today! Share your congratulations to the cast, crew, behind the scenes personnel on this achievement, and a special shout out to you, the fans, that have continued to enjoy and have been invested in the show for over 4-plus decades.  Comment below!

I’m not feeling it if it turns out Jack is not an Abbott. Maybe Eric Forrester is his father.

hi Mo..
Jack Abbott is a cornerstone of Y&R as is Victor..
That will never change..

There is no Y&R worth much of anything without the two powers; Victor and Jack.

Jack is John’s son… that is Y&R ..

imo- it will be a story to have Jack feel what Ashley felt/feels knowing she’s not an Abbott.
Most likely the story will be the bringing together of Jack and Ashley.

Jack Abbott and Victor Newman will always be.

It will be a very good story!!! The journey of Jack finding himself ..
Perhaps another visit from John..

It is a huge mistake rewriting history I wish they had never bought Dina back and guess what my sis tells everybody she wrote the novel Gone With The Wind does that make it true???? Get your shovel ready let’s bury the soap

I loved this show but taking it and making everybody act like a I pod from the body snachters is too much! They will do fine after this week because I do enjoy seeing the oldies I am soap free!

i’m watching just this weeks epi : for the 45th. oh wow… like I needed convincing in Marla Adams… as Dina.

” I don’t want any DAMN tea, I want to leave right now, you are so impertinent, you should be fired, johns going to know about this”

ALL the trappings that scare the bejeezus out of any one.

this rocks to the core… you can’t even grasp at any thing. the finality

kudos, salute… on the excellence of Marla Adams. how does it get any better

Patrick
Guest
Patrick

ie: your post… which explains … why – Dina would “make-up” ANOTHER scenario … with another of her children… that being Jack. that is tantamount to may as well blow this show up. as @suOOOO said.. you can’t just have two gladiators… without the other. Jack ABBOTT and Victor NEWMAN. since she grappled and fought for a lifetime.. Ashley parentage. anyway… theres no way around this… as was said @GH Mike story. just hearing the word , scares . for drama sake… Y&R and GH are to be lauded for SHARING what is more common than any one wants

I don’t think this latest “revelation” will lead anywhere. I think Dina is confusing her memories (hopefully).

I have to say Days is on fire and i feel Ron Calivati is the force that has made the other shows stand up and compete! That said, Young and Restless was brilliant this week. Whether people are not on board with the actions of JT the scenes between him and Amelia Heinle were amazing T he week was one minute a gasp than breathe in than a gasp Peter Bergman Marla Adams Eileen Davidson brilliant!!! Nick and Sharon finally!!!!!!1 All around major points !

I gotta mansion;
For the 1st time– Y&R has more action and intruge than GH .,

GH was once the king of adventure, action, hard drama and intruge now it is Dull, Stale, BLAH, and that is sad, a shame 🙁 GH has lost itself ..

WTG! Y&R– Mal is bringing it home!

No, SuzieQ…not the first time. That’s impossible, LOL.
How long have you been watching Y&R? I LOVE THIS SHOW, come hell or high water!!
Perhaps if GH got rid of Sonny, Carly, Michael, Sam, Aunt Stella ( suddenly she has a degree in Social Senior Services? For someone who ‘deals’ with human sense and sensibility and emotions, she is presented as a harsh hussy), Dr. Borscht?, and Bobbi, the show would be more palatable…..But you like Sonny, yes?

Soaphound

I don’t get it, Celia. While others languish, Sonny and Carly (and her clomping size 19s) each now have a big storyline AGAIN. if I have to watch her salivating over Drew and Sam’s breakup, I may SERIOUSLY consider making a Carly voodoo doll (just a too-tight mini-dress, some straw for hair, and regular adult shoes 10 sizes too big oughta do it), then we’ll see who’s cackling away!

Shay
Guest
Shay

Well, that would be a good start, CeeCeeGirl! Especially the supercilious Aunt Stella and creepy Dr. Bensch, who is looking to be the lecher we believed him to be from the very beginning. The problem with GH is that there are so many unpalatable characters that getting rid of just one or two will not be sufficent to the purpose of getting this soap back on track. It really does require deep culling of the herd…..

Celia…about Aunt Stella…girl, as always, you are SO RIGHT ON!!!!! GH suddenly making Stella a social worker…I cannot help but LMAO on that one!!!!! This makes me like Aunt Stella EVEN LESS!!!!! Trips to a local car wash last A LOT LONGER than that…lol.

Oh, my gosh, Soaphound….you’re the best. It’s remarks like these ( as Harry, Shay, Timmm, Jimh, Alan, su, and others—not necessarily in that order, LOL) that make these sites magnetic…keep coming back for more. LOL and beyond, my friend.
Oh, yeah…..I didn’t know there was a size 19…..laughing as I write. My husband is size 12-13( and I thought that was huge)….I, a mere 5-51/2…..
Clomp, clomp, clomp. Your exaggeration hits the spot.
I do not know why this couple is soooo venerated…..why not, eh? They’re soooo supreme, afterall…..

Jill being Catherine’s daughter bombed so badly, they had to make her Lorren’s sister… Can’t keep track of who is Christian’s father, or was it Summer’s father? Or who is Lilly’s father… and now they are going to make Jack and Victor brothers… bad move, serves no purpose. The writers bombs with this one too.

Victor’s father was played by the late, great George Kennedy. I didn’t think the character was from Genoa City.

Who is Jack Abbott? IF he’s not John’s biological son, I’d go for Neil Fenmore! Wouldn’t that be a great twist. Hate the idea of changing history, though.

Mo

Then he would have slept with his half-sister. No thanks!

Keep him as John’s son. Why mess with history? Serves no purpose and ruins a lot of things. It was bad enough they made Ashley the result of an affair. Leave Jack’s paternity alone.

I’m LOATHING the notion that Jack may not be John’s son. If the plot plays out in that direction, I think it was a TERRIBLE idea. A decade ago, the writers RUINED Jill when they tinkered with her lineage: First, writing her as Kay’s daughter and then revisiting the sad tale to make her Lauren’s sister. It made absolutely no sense. Based on their interactions for over 20 years, there was no way that anyone would believe that Liz Foster was not Jill’s mother. They further insulted us with the idea that Jill was the daughter of Neil Fenmore (who… Read more »

Jack will forever be John’s son…
Y&R would never ever make Jack not John’s son. no more than Y&R would make Victor a Jocky .

Jack and Victor are forever characters..

The story will drag us threws the muk but endgame; Jack is John’s son..

Barbara from Atlanta

I hope that you are correct. However, someone could have said something similar about Jill and Kay —- “Y&R would never make Jill Kay’s daughter. Jill is clearly a Foster.” We saw first hand how that turned out. I would have more confidence in things if the show had not suffered from a “revolving door” of producers and writers over the past decade. With the exception of Sally Sussman and Kay Alden (I’m big fans of both), none of the others seemed to have bothered to learn the history of the show or (in the case of Maria Arena Bell)… Read more »

Hi Barbara, A well-written and beautifully detailed look at the history of Y and R! I am in your camp: keep Jack Abbott a true Abbott. IT was a horrible mistake to make Jill Foster somebody other than Liz Foster’s daughter. Same would hold true here for Jack. On that note, as much as I hated seeing John Abbott killed off, I’d sure like to have Jack hallucinate again so we can see John now and then. I was really small when Y and R debuted, watching it with my mom (saw it the first time when I was home… Read more »

Barbara from Atlanta…you couldn’t have said it better and I have already been thinking of quit watching but the last 3 days of last week were excellent but I feel this week has been lackluster and if the Brook sister’s aren’t on more than this past Tuesday then IMO that would be an insult to Jaime Lyn and Janice to come back for that little bit of scene and what a waste of their time…I totally agree with what you said about the writing since 2006 and I had high hopes with Sally and Kay and poof they were gone…

Didn’t like how Chelsea was written into a bad person by everyone, don’t like it that suddenly JT is an abuser and especially won’t like it if Jack is not an Abbott. Stop messing with well established characters and then turning them into something they haven’t been in all the years we watched.

I record. Kind of afraid to look forward after reading these comments. Jack is John’s son. Some foundation is important and should not be compromised too often.

Should Victor or Jack pass away: then writer’s, please keep us!

Guess I had better watch!

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
