Holy smokes, Batman! Supporters of axed “The Young and the Restless” actor Michael Muhney (ex-Adam Newman) have gone and done it again — they banded together and raised $2,000 to charter a second plane to fly over CBS Studios today in order to air their feelings over the popular actor getting let go from the soap.
“#TeamMuhney Walks with Michael” was the message spread across the sky today, which marked Muhney’s last airdate as Victor’s (Eric Braeden) tortured son. The first banner was sent out by fans on Thursday, January 9.
Daytime soaps have seen a resurgence of sorts in the past few months, but some worried it would be short lived when last week’s ratings slightly fell. But fear not, soap fans, as both “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” ratings have gone up yet again!
According to Nielsen “live plus same day” ratings for the week of January 20 through January 24, “B&B” went from 3.69 million viewers to 3.94 million viewers. Meanwhile, “Y&R” increased from 4.98 million viewers to 5.38 million viewers (making it once again daytime’s number one program in women 25-54 and women 18-49).
Congratulations, CBS sudsers!
Despite recent Twitter feedback from fans who seem unsatisfied with “Days of our Lives,” the drama series has been pulling in its highest numbers in three years — and the latest ratings information shows the sudser is still going strong! According to “live plus same day” viewing figures from Nielson Media Research, the week of January 20 through January 24 saw 681,00 viewers in the women 18-49 category, the same number of viewers as the previous week, which was the show’s highest rating in that category in three years.

When it rains, it pours… Especially when a hashtagged phrase catches on via Twitter! And funny enough, Ken Corday, executive producer of NBC’s “Days of our Lives,” is the latest to be caught in a storm of incessant fan tweets.
Hot on the heels of the drama winning “Best Soap of All Time” in a Parade magazine poll, fans took to Twitter to share their displeasure with the series using #CordaysFault along with the tweets. And with so many passionate fans joining the conversation, it’s become a trending topic — even to the point of jokes like “I stepped in a puddle and ruined my shoes. I guess that’s #CordaysFault too?”
It’s been 23 years since Kristoff St. John stepped into the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Neil Winters, and since that time, the New York native has given countless interviews giving fans a detailed glimpse into the man he is when the cameras aren’t rolling. But despite all of the revealing material, there’s still a large part of St. John’s life that hasn’t been publicly unearthed — until now! The actor has just finished completion of a horrifying documentary film detailing his family’s unsuccessful 1980s quest to find God in India, and Soap Opera Network spoke with him about the groundbreaking film and how the childhood experience shaped him as a human being. Read on to get the scoop as well as a few teases regarding Neil’s life, too!
Today marks the first day of the all-important February Sweeps ratings period, and “The Young and the Restless” went all out with not only dramatic scenes between besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), but also a gripping face-off between Billy (Billy Miller) and Adam (Michael Muhney) that led to both actors’ final appearance on the show!
Another day, another drama. At least, that seems to be the case for “The Young and the Restless’” Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), who is juggling so many Genoa City cases as Chief of Police, it’s tough to keep all of the details straight! His onscreen wife, Christine (Lauralee Bell), isn’t exactly thrilled that her new hubby is so busy, especially because he took the time to help Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) track down the truth about her son, Dylan (Steve Burton). And unfortunately for her, it looks like Paul’s busy schedule won’t be letting up any time soon! We spoke with the character’s portrayer, Davidson, to get the scoop on whether or not Paul’s work will destroy his relationship and where Nikki might fit into the puzzle. Read on to find out!
Former “All My Children” actress Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane) has been filming Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” and Investigation Discovery’s “Deadly Affairs” since the ABC sudser went off the air back in 2011, but just what else has the busy actress been up to?
