Genoa City will continue to be a top destination for soap opera drama with the news today that the CBS Daytime series has been renewed for four more years, through the 2023-2024 broadcast season.  CBS and Sony Pictures Television made the announcement.  Meanwhile, the show continues to remain the number one soap for a record 31-plus years.

“Having the #1 show for any length of time in any daypart is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Kelly Kahl, President, CBS Entertainment. “But The Young and the Restless has been daytime’s top drama for over three decades.

It’s a remarkable achievement and a testament to the extraordinary cast, gifted writers, talented producers and supremely passionate fans, as well as our tremendous partnership with Sony Pictures Television.”

“We are thrilled to continue the legacy of The Young and the Restless at CBS, as this renewal will take us to our 50th anniversary in 2023, and beyond,” added Steve Kent, Senior Executive Vice President, Programming, Sony Pictures Television. “The iconic characters created by William J. Bell and Lee Philip Bell 47 years ago continue to captivate audiences in the U.S. and across the globe, and we look forward to building on the dynamic storylines featuring these beloved characters.

WHOA!
I counted the cast..
there are 32 actors to pay $$
and a few get Big $$$

And– the new $ sets..
Y&R has to be bringing in good $$

Good to hear there will be 4 more years to come.
Also– Days..

((any word on GH?

Days as I’m sure you’re aware was renewed for the 2020-2021 season. Have not heard anything about GH.

Steve

GH is wholly owned and produced by ABC. Renewals are not applicable. It’s not on a season-to-season commitment schedule like the other 3 soaps.

Ahhh, so that’s why GH is always on the chopping block.

I envy how quickly AND often @cbs is renewing Y&R, what a comfort zone.. really, it is,

DAYS fights years .. why should they ?

A change must be coming at the top then, because this “version” of Y&R is the worst it’s ever been.

Nice, but some of the current storylines are blah. Hoping they improve.

Wonderful news! Now if they could just step up the storylines (at least have a few storylines of interest), then all will be right with the world.

What they could do is have Tessa elope with her ex-husband, and Billy develop a fatal peanut allergy.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Oh Dr. Helen, if only! Tessa and her ex are a new low. We should be invested in a brand new character and a girl we’ve seen 3 times in 6 months? Yes, I’m thrilled the show has been renewed; I’m hopeful it will improve. Of course, every time I say that, they bring on another non-actor like Chance. Bring on the Baldwins, including Gloria, Fen, Kevin, Chloe; the Williams; Jill and Esther…and Nina!

This proves these networks dont care or watch soaps. This is the worst soap on TV right now and it got a 4 year renewal!

Soaphound

Timmm, I decided to be hopeful. Then I watched today’s episode where Tessa and Tanner sang. Sang! This is what I deserve after 40-plus years? Since they were singing on an airplane, let’s hope it was well-stocked with airsick bags. I know I was.

Sorry I will still pick Y & R over GH I can’t stand SB or MB and please don’t tell me they are nice people I want to throw up,

The two who you hate anchor the show. They are connected to almost every other character. You have your opinion and your FF button!

TV shows don’t get renewed based on individual opinions of their quality. It’s about projecting whether they can be profitable. To me, that’s more shocking that CBS would invest in a four-year renewal. I wonder what tricks they have up their sleeves that make them believe it will still make money so far in the future.

Kay

Might help the ratings if they get Stafford playing with the grown ups this dressing her in call girl clothes is beyond stupid and her best scene in forever was today with Case they play off each other well it helps if you have a cast member you trust and for all that’s holy let her and Peter have some scenes together they work well together and let’s get Lauren Paul Michael a story they are the ones who kept the ratings up also ! No I am not for another head writer change work with getting JG another writer who knows the shoe and put Adam Chelsea a rest and Abby

Soaphound
Soaphound

YES, Kay! It reminds of the scene in MRS. DOUBTFIRE when she tells Sally Field that the dress Sally intends to wear makes her look like a streetwalker. It reeks of desperation and Michelle Stafford doesn’t need it; her talent is enough. Adam and Chelsea? I’ve had enough for a full year, especially of that wicked spawn of theirs. We need Baldwins (including sexy Fen), Fishers, Gloria, Nina, Jill…even Esther!

Kay
Kay

Oh my god I love this show and Staffords scenes today with case were off the charts ms is a great actress she has been given shit put her back as I said with the grown ups !!! I will always want Nick and Sharon back together but that’s me! If you can’t see the chemistry with Them you are nuts though I adore Jordi he is good people

Kay
Kay

For the first time since MS has been back her s scenes with Case has been great!! More please they awesome together

Kay

Stafford is good but since she has been back they have written crap fir her she deserves better

Kay

Like I said she and Case are gold take advantage of that

Timmm

I like that Nick and Rey are mutually supporting Sharon.

Kay

I truly have not enjoyed Stafford being back then she had scenes today with Case and I remember how good she could be I am all for these two actresses bonding yes it’s nuts but Stafford needs to finally work with someone who she has chemistry with she has been floating out there with stupid wardrobe no purpose and acting opposite amateurs ! I am sure Ordway is a nice woman but she is blah to me maybe just put a few on the back burner for a while I want case and Morrow to find their way back but I know that’s not where they are headed so I just give it a rest but if you watch on you tube some of their old scenes your heart melts they just have it!

Kay
Kay

The final word I want my show back !!!! If you are going to renew it then make it good and have Victor build the old ranch set back I miss it

Kevin C

Kay I so agree with you about Sharon and Nick, I believe they are a lifetime couple, I remember when they started on the show…The GREAT days of Y&R and they are so missed…I also agree about the old ranch set too…Oh let’s not forget the beautiful classic background music…

Timmm

And lets make the Chancelor estate relevant again!

Abby and Chance melt!

Conner is wicked. He will be the future Adam of the show. Chelsea can go into hiding forever! I like Fen but not this one. I like the original.

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

NATAS Launches New Streaming Service App As Destination To Watch Daytime Emmys and More

Looks like the place to view the Daytime Emmy ceremonies continue to change, and now evolve with the times, with news on Wednesday from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

While the annual kudofest used to be on major network television, the last several years have found the Emmys not having a broadcast outlet and having to be creative.  As fans of the daytime community know, most recently that show has been able to seen on You Tube, Twitter, and the like, via social media.

Now comes word that NATAS has launched its very own streaming service app to be the epicenter for all of its award shows.  According to Variety: “The service, which doesn’t yet have a name (but will likely include “Emmy” in its title), will be unveiled in time for the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards in April, and the Sports Emmys in May, both of which are administered by NATAS.”

With the introduction of the new OTT app, NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp shared that viewers will know where to go instead of  how it went down in the recent previous years.“We were making it available on PCs and mobile in a clunky way. But with the Emmys OTT app available on any platform, if you want to watch on your phone you can watch on your phone. You want to watch on your TV, you can watch on your TV. And really be accessible to the audience. Wherever they are consuming the shows, we’re on it.”

One more important note is that Sharp says to be on the lookout for more content to enhance the Emmy and award show experiences delivered from NATAS that will include: past awards ceremonies, as well as clips from the NATAS archives,.

In addition to that, looks like there will be some original short form content as well; including its first one “Behind the Emmy” that will combine backstage interviews, onstage acceptance speeches and some of the actual submitted content to really tell the story of the excellent creativity and production work that goes into winning that most coveted honor of excellence in television,” Sharp said.

So, what do you think about the upcoming launch of NATAS’ new app and the place to watch this year’s Daytime Emmys? Comment below.
