While the iconic daytime drama actually airs its 12,000th episode next Tuesday, December 1st, the entire week of November 30th will be a celebration for the show reaching yet another milestone in their storied career.

In story,  the Newman, Abbott and Chancellor families will gather for the nuptials of Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway) and Phillip “Chance” Chancellor IV (Justin Gaston). The Hamilton/Winters family will be represented when Abby’s best friend, Devon (Bryton James), serves as the officiant of the ceremony. Wedding guests include: Victor (Eric Braeden) and Nikki  Newman (Melody Thomas Scott), Jill Abbott (Jess Walton), Nina Webster (Tricia Cast), and Jack (Peter Bergman), Ashley (Eileen Davidson) and Traci Abbott (Beth Maitland).

On the 12,000th episode, viewers will be treated to flashbacks that recall some of the show’s classic love stories, including the story of iconic super couple Victor and Nikki Newman.

Since its debut back on March 26, 1973, The Young and the Restless has racked up 162 DaytimeEmmy wins and took home the Outstanding Daytime Drama Series top prize 11 times; including this past June.

So looking forward to Chance and Abby’s nuptials and how the show marks their 12,000 episode on-air?  Comment below.

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.

Agree, looks like varied shades of black.

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.

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.

Head writer has to GO!

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 many that are going to drink a gallon of coffee
so not to miss a minute of it, so enjoy..
Really, I do hope you all enjoy every minute of it.

Iam with you, this family is the boringest, is that a word?

Hey, maybe Julian will swing by and blow up the whole bunch! Ha, ha

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.

Missing the real Chance.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS OF OUR LIVES Preview: What Will Diana Tell Leo? Is John Really His Father?

This week on Days of our Lives, Judith Chapman is back for a one-day stint as Diana Colville when her son, Leo (Greg Rikaart) visits her in prison.

In story, Diana was sent to the slammer, for back in 2019 she tried to murder Marlena (Deidre Hall), and at the time she admitted (or claims) she falsified the DNA tests that originally proved the John Black (Drake Hogestyn) was Leo’s father. Leo turned his back on his mother and has not seen or spoken to her again.

However, recently Leo has visited Marlena as his shrink to try to get to the bottom of why he is the way he is. Upon Marlena’s suggestion, she advises him to see his mother.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest on her upcoming key scenes, Chapman expressed, “Diana was not happy about him going to Marlena for help and Leo is like, ‘Yeah, Mom, I’m figuring this out because you messed me up so much in my life.'”

Judith teased,“She (Diana) stays in control so she’s not breaking down but her facade definitely cracks. By the time we finished the scenes, everybody who was in earshot started applauding. I thought it was just a token, ‘Oh, welcome back, Judith,’ but it was because Greg and I apparently knocked it out of the park. The director came out, threw her hands up and was like, ‘You did it, you did it!’ Greg and I hugged and just clung to each other for 15, 20 seconds.”

Make sure to tune-in to the Tuesday, June 25th of the Peacock streaming soap opera to see the showdown between Leo and Diana.

So, do you think Leo is John’s biological son after all? Do you think Diana will reveal something else that will help Leo figure out why he does the things he does? Are you excited to see Judith and Greg in scenes again, after years as Y&R mother and son, Gloria and Kevin, and then on Days as Diana and Leo?

GENERAL HOSPITAL Preview: After Tracy Takes Incriminating Photos of Finn; It All Points to Him Losing Custody of Violet

It’s clear that General Hospital is headed towards really taking Finn (Michael Easton) all the way down to the depths of despair, when his family and friends, while trying to do the right thing and protect his daughter, Violet (Jophielle Love), from any harm, are also setting the guy up for a real punch to the gut.

Thus far, Finn started drinking heavily after his father Gregory passed away in the middle of the night. Now, it looks like his daughter will be taken away from him.

In story on the Friday’s June 19th episode, after Finn cuts his hand accidentally on broken glass, he ends up passing out on the floor from excessive drinking. Violet comes upon her dad, and ends up calling Tracy (Jane Elli0t). When Tracy shows up, she calls the paramedics, who inform her that the issue with Finn is he drank too much.


Once Violet goes over to Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard), Tracy goes back to Finn’s and takes photos on her phone of Finn passed out, a bottle of booze, the glass and the entire scenario.

So, between Brook Lynn, Chase and Tracy, it looks like Finn will not stand a chance at keeping custody of Violet, unless one of them sticks up for the good doc? In true soap-fashion, it would seem most likely, a court will grant temporary custody to Brook Lynn and Chase, setting up some kind of emotional full custody battle down the line? Stay tuned.


Teasers for the week of June 24-28 on GH indicate the following:


Tracy issues an ultimatum. Chase and Brook Lynn seek legal advice. Carly plots a bold move. Molly and TJ have a heart-to-heart. Ava gets an earful.

TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2024

Jason and Elizabeth discuss their son. Carly opens up to Brennan. Anna makes a discovery. Valentin makes a proposal. Finn suffers a setback.



Trina delivers bad news. Ava is on the warpath. Mac visits Cody. Alexis makes a revelation. Gio is alarmed. 

THURSDAY, JUNE 27, 2024 

Chase supports Finn. Jason and Danny bond. Dante voices his concerns to Sam. Dex surprises Josslyn.

FRIDAY, JUNE 28, 2024

Carly and Jason clash. Sonny and Natalia get closer. Ava seeks out Laura. Brook Lynn and Chase make a big decision. Blaze has some tough questions for Kristina.

So, what did you think of Tracy taking photos of Finn passed out drunk? Are you on Tracy, Brook Lynn and Chase’s side, or do you think Finn will sober up when he realizes Violet will be taken from him? Share your theories via the comment section below.
