I think Traci and Ashley should be in more colorful dresses.

I’m looking forward to it. At least the happy couple can be close to one another with Justin playing Chance.

Y&R needs to reunite Sharon with Adam.

When Sharon asked Rey to marry her, I was thinking that it not going to happen. I have a feeling that she proposed to Rey to try and fight back feelings she still and will always have for Adam. I have a feeling the day of the wedding, if not a little before, that poor Rey is going to get royally screwed, whether Adam s still in the hospital or not. And if that is the case, I hope Nick isn’t stupid enough to go back with Chelsea. Time will tell I guess.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Why didn’t they wait for Donny Boaz to return to have the wedding??? This is SO very disappointing! Nothing against the recast, but it would have meant so much more to see the original Chance and Abby at such a momentous moment in their relationship.

I feel the same way. Abby and Chance went through so much aggravation together. It would be nice for the “real” Chance to be there. And like you, I don’t have anything against the replacement, it would just be nice considering what they have been through.

Shari,
I think I commented before somewhere. It won’t be the same without Donny.

Young restless has become the Seinfeld of daytime tv. But not funny more embaressing. The soap about nothing! Minus a cpl of good developing plots,aka the Adam show
thank god for Mark Grossman, nothing of real consequence happens!
Shame on cbs! Lets celebrate 12 000 eppys of Bill Bells legacy and the top rated soap with a wedding of two mediocre characters. Atleast we get a much better Chance in Justin Gaston and Tricia Cast finally back. Small wins with this show these days. Cbs and Sony should be ashamed.No eccuse for still keeping Josh Griffith around.

If only Y&R hadn’t bowed to an element of its fan base and written out the interesting Latinx characters – maybe it would be more fun to watch. Instead we get refried Adam vs. everyone, refried Nick + Phyllis, refried self-absorbed Billy and his demons, refried Jack giving sermons bla bla bla. OMG people, this show has talent and just refuses to use it! More Amanda, more Ashley, more Traci, more Mariah! Less Newsman!

The Abbott family is the most boring/lacklustre family, ever. Adam is the only spark of fire of the lot. Jack- whats wrong with the man? He comes off like a beaten puppy, a sucker/gullible one. The Abbotts need to have a firecracker under them to get them to outta their commas. How Y&R is #1 is beyond me. The Week-Long Celebration 0ooh that’s going to be an overkill of boring. I’ll skip it and tune in the followling week only because I’m addicted LOL 🙂 It has to get better, yes.. I have patience and hopes. I know there are… Read more »

I adore Jack and Tracy. But if I have to see them play Nancy Drew solving yet another mystery involving their mother’s past, I’m gonna roar-yawn. “Hey Traci,” says Jack. “ I found an old hair brush of Dina’s in the attic. I wonder what it means?” Tracy responds with excitement, “I will research that hair brush, Jack. It could be a clue and I can add it to the Abbott Family sequel I’m writing!”

OMG, I don’t know if I can stand this crowd for a whole week, they get pretty boring after a while. Enjoyed the T.G show from years back with the masquerade ball. Loved seeing the actors back then. I had forgotten Gina Romaladi and how good she was, among others. Funny, I don’t remember that David person who tried to kill Danny and the others.

Violet, that masquerade ball was such fun and harked back to the days when soap operas had a huge budget. That was 1991, a couple of years before OJ’s run and subsequent TV trials had seriously impacted viewership.

THIS WEEK: Eileen Davidson and Beth Maitland’s Y&R 40th Anniversary Episode To Air

It’s time to celebrate the life and times of Genoa City sisters, Ashley and Traci Abbott, when this week on the Thursday, June 16th episode of The Young and the Restless, the top-rated daytime drama delivers a standalone episode in their honor.

That means, that Ashley and Traci’s longtime portrayers, Emmy winners, Eileen Davidson (Ashley) and Beth Maitland (Traci), also celebrate on-air their 40th anniversary with the iconic soap.

Davidson premiered as Ashley back on June 11, 1982, while Maitland debuted a few days later on June 17, 1982.

Back in May of 2022, the actresses were saluted by the cast and crew in a special on set private celebration for this amazing milestone.

Coming up this week, Traci and Ashley will share Abbott memories with Jack’s (Peter Bergman) granddaughter Ally (Kelsey Wang), the newest member of the extended Abbott clan, in the special anniversary episode.

From the looks of the promo for it below, there will be clips a-plenty as Ashley and Traci stroll down memory lane.

So, what has been your favorite storyline and moment of Ashley and Traci’s through the years? And … share your congrats to Eileen and Beth on a job well-done for 40 years in Genoa City via the comment section.

TONIGHT: ‘This Is Us’ Series Finale: Are You Ready to Say Goodbye?

In its sixth and final season, This Is Us delivered unforgettable episodes and performances that will remain with us for some time to come.  From the intrinsic writing, tying stories together from the past, present and future, and the remarkable standout of the season, Mandy Moore (Rebecca), the NBC drama series airs one last time for its series finale tonight at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT.

While we have been prepped to have the tissues ready, the cast and creatives have previewed that the finale will also feel like a big warm hug to longtime viewers who have watched the Pearson family every step of the way from the very beginning.

Last week’s penultimate episode, “The Train”, saw Rebecca’s life come to an end after her battle with Alzheimer’s.  Now in the finale, the funeral is front and center stage and a part of the story that is previewed as much more than that.

The series finale is simply titled “Us” and many of the scenes were actually shot four years ago.  Mandy Moore told Deadline at the This Is Us finale party, “To be honest, a lot of what is in the finale for Milo (Ventimiglia) and I was filmed years ago.  I don’t even remember what it was. We had a couple of things we shot for this that I’m excited to see. But I read the script and I’m excited to see everyone else’s work. I think it’s really beautiful. In my own selfish way—maybe because my character passed on in the last episode—I felt like last week was the finale and this one feels more like an epilogue in a way. I think it’s a really beautiful way to tie things all together and tie them up in a very satisfactory fashion.”

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Justin Hartley (Kevin) just simply said the finale comes “full circle.”

The NBC official This Is Us twitter account, came up with the most clever way to promote and remember their beloved series, with a doctors note from OBGYN Dr. Katowski (played by Gerald McRaney) to get the day off work or school to recover from the emotions you will experience during the airing of the show’s conclusion.  (See it below).

So, are you ready to say goodbye to This is Us? Any predictions on the finale?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES PREVIEW: Peter Reckell Returns as Bo Helps Ciara and Steve in Their Time of Need

In a surprise promo for next week’s action on NBC’s Days of our Lives, none other than Peter Reckell makes a previously unannounced return to the mothership series as the iconic Bo Brady.

Reckell, who had been tapped to reprise his soap-famous role for the upcoming summer limited-series, Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem (Chapter Two), on Peacock, and taped his scenes a few weeks ago, must have gotten a little extra from the writers, to get to return to the network series in which he was one of the mainstays for over four decades.

As viewers know, Bo died several years ago, and now in 2022, it looks like Bo is making a heavenly visit to his daughter Ciara (Victoria Konefal) and her husband Ben (Rob Scott Wilson) in their time of need with their newborn baby, as well as best friend, Steve (Stephen Nichols), who needs a miracle to help save his son, Tripp (Lucas Adams) … all part of the AllDevil’s (Lindsay Arnold) heinous plots that has several major moments play out the week of May 16th.  This is May Sweeps after all!

Watch the promo below, featuring the return of Peter Reckell.

Now. let us know, are you excited to watch how Bo’s ‘visit’ plays out? Let us know via the comment section below.
