CBS Daytime’s “The Price is Right” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” are joining forces with “The Young and the Restless” to pay tribute to the life of the late Jeanne Cooper, who for more than 39 years portrayed Katherine Chancellor on daytime’s most watched drama series.
Cooper, who passed away after a brief illness on Wednesday, May 8, will be honored by cast members, close friends, and her family, when CBS airs “The Young and the Restless: Tribute to Jeanne Cooper” on Tuesday, May 28. Just before the special episode airs, the network will re-air the “Y&R” anniversary themed edition of “The Price is Right” featuring Cooper alongside co-stars Lamon Archey, Marco Dapper, Ignacio Serricchio and Redaric Williams. The episode originally aired on Tuesday, March 26, the same day “Y&R” turned 40 years old, and features the actors presenting “Y&R” 40th anniversary-themed showcases to “Price” contestants.
“The Bold and the Beautiful” will air an original episode as planned, but will pay tribute to Cooper at the end of its episode with a memorial card featuring the actress on Tuesday, May 28.
