Despite her lawsuit against CBS and Sony Pictures Television being dismissed by a judge last month, former "The Young and the Restless" actress Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla Winters) has officially filed an amended complaint against the two companies citing retaliation and discrimination. "We'll vigorously prosecute claims," said Rowell on Twitter.
Compiling ratings data from production studio sources for the period beginning January 1 and ending October 31, Vulture recently reported some of the most watched shows in 18 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Poland, Hungary and Italy, and the publication found the likes of "NCIS," "Criminal Minds," "The Flash," "The Blacklist," "Grey's Anatomy" and the recently concluded "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" still at the top of the list for most watched shows in the world.

Thompson will officially join the "Y&R" cast on screen beginning in January 2016.
As first reported by About.com, "Days of our Lives" actors Judi Evans (Adrienne Kiriakis) and Wally Kurth (Justin Kiriakis) have been taken off contract. The duo learned of the decision by producers on Monday, November 30, but it's understood that at least Kurth will remain with the show in a recurring capacity.
