With Elizabeth Hendrickson returning as Chloe Mitchell on today's episode of "The Young and the Restless" in remembrance of the one year anniversary of the death of her daughter, Delia Abbott, it's only appropriate that the stars from daytime's most watched drama series take part in a live tweet during the show to talk about the emotional scenes they filmed and what the storyline has meant for them overall. Hendrickson, Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman) and Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher) plan to do just that!
If you tuned into today's episode of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," you likely saw the "Next On..." segment, which highlights what's happening on the next episode of the daytime drama series, and you probably thought you were seeing things when a clip of Elizabeth Hendrickson appearing as Chloe Mitchell was shown. No, you're not going crazy!

As Soap Opera Network gets ready to celebrate its 13th anniversary on Wednesday, October 8, we are proud to announce that we will begin providing our readers with weekly ratings reports for not just the daytime soaps, but also talk shows "The Chew," "The Talk," "The View," "The Today Show 2" and "The Today Show 3," as well as game shows "Let's Make a Deal" and "The Price is Right," along with the previously reported ratings for "The Young and the Restless," "Days of our Lives," "General Hospital" and "The Bold and the Beautiful." The charts, which will vary week to week, does not take away from the weekly daytime drama rankings we will continue posting each week, but instead represents what daytime programming as a whole looks like when compared with one another and not based solely on genre.
