Before enjoying your annual Thanksgiving meal with friends and family on Thursday, November 27, one day earlier - Wednesday, November 26 - the men of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will provide plenty of thanks for viewers of "The Queen Latifah Show" as the talk show welcomes actors Peter Bergman (Jack), Justin Hartley (Adam), Daniel Goddard (Cane), Bryton James (Devon) and Joshua Morrow (Nicholas) to the program to chat with Queen Latifah herself.
As the polls close in some states, and prepare to close in others, it might come as a surprise to learn which of your favorite television shows may appeal more to those who share a different political viewpoint from that of your own. In the weeks leading up to the mid-term elections taking place today, Bloomberg did a study that followed political ad spending on various forms of programming aired throughout the year leading up to election night. In it, Bloomberg noted that "General Hospital," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Talk," "The Steve Harvey Show" and even "Judge Judy," among others, aired more Democratic political ads while news oriented programming such as "CBS Sunday Morning," "NBC Nightly News," "Nightline," the Sunday editions of both "Good Morning America" and "The Today Show," and even game show "The Price is Right," aired more Republican ads.

November’s ‘Bold’ Casting Notes

Tuesday, November 4, 2014 2:12 PM EDT
This month on CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" fans will get to see the beautiful city of Amsterdam when Hope (Kim Matula), Liam (Scott Clifton), Wyatt (Darin Brooks) and Ivy (Ashleigh Brewer) travel abroad to mix business with pleasure, but an on location shoot isn't the only thing to look forward to on the daytime drama series.
With NBC's "Bad Judge" and "A to Z" pulling less a than a 1.0 rating in the key Adults 18-49 sales demographic the network has decided to end both Thursday comedies after airing the original full 13-episode order for each. "Judge," the higher rated of the two, starred "The Practice's" Kate Walsh as a "bad judge" who really isn't. The series pulled a 0.9 in the demo in its most recent airing, while "A to Z," co-starring Cristin Milioti (aka: the mother from CBS' "How I Met Your Mother"), pulled in a 0.7 rating, which is the lowest rating a primetime show reportedly can hit before it gets the axe. Former "Passions" star Ryan McPartlin recently completed an arc on "Judge."
On Tuesday, December 2, former "All My Children" stars Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) and Walt Willey (ex-Jackson Montgomery) are set to reunite as part of a "Soap Opera Showdown" segment of NBCUniversal's syndicated daytime talker, "The Meredith Vieira Show." The episode finds Willey surprising Lucci during her showdown with host Meredith Vieira.
