For all intents and purposes, “Days of our Lives’” Galen Gering (Rafe Hernandez) has had one of the best gigs in Los Angeles as of late. Not only was he getting paid to hang out in a bed all day while his alter ego was in a coma, he’s had the recent fortune of playing the recovery part of the story, which is a physical challenge that rarely falls into an actor’s lap. The result: Some standout scenes of Rafe re-learning to walk that prove Gering has some acting legs to stand on!

Whoever said daytime was a dying industry clearly didn’t have a very reliable crystal ball: CBS Daytime ratings are skyrocketing across the board!
The network released information today regarding the week-to-week growth in viewers and women age 25-54, and it shows that all of its daytime shows notched increases. In fact, “The Young and the Restless” averaged 4.76 million viewers — its largest audience since February! Read beyond the jump to see the official release, which is based on Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending Sunday, October 20. And congratulations, CBS!
On Friday, October 25, “The Young and the Restless’” Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) will be appearing on “The Queen Latifah Show,” where he’ll be sitting down with former rapper Queen Latifah to chat about a variety of fun topics — including talking cars with Elvis Presley!
For a sneak peek at what you can expect, click on the play button below or tune in for the full episode (check local listings for time and station).
In addition to Braeden, viewers can expect to see “How I Met Your Mother’s” Alyson Hannigan, humorist/chef Charles Phoenix, plus country sensation Thomas Rhett on the episode.
Former “Guiding Light” actress Cynthia Watros has been pulling double duty: Not only has the “Lost” alum been taping an upcoming three-day arc for “The Young and the Restless,” she’s also been gearing up to star in MTV’s pilot, “Finding Carter!”
Deadline first reported the news that the actress had landed the drama pilot, which centers on Carter, a happy teen whose life comes crumbling down when it’s discovered that her seemingly perfect mother actually abducted her! Watros (who’s no stranger to bad ass roles, having won an Emmy for her portrayal of “GL’s” psychotic character, Annie) stars as Carter’s biological mother, a tough-as-nails detective who’s hell bent on finding her daughter’s kidnapper.
For more on Watros’ busy schedule, including details on her November run as “Y&R’s” Kelly, stay tuned for an upcoming interview with the actress!
It’s incontrovertible that “Days of our Lives” James Scott (EJ DiMera) is drop dead gorgeous. He has an impressive 6-foot-something stature, model good looks, a smooth British accent, perfectly polished style and… scrapes all over his hands. (Record scratch.) Yes, when the English native recently sat down with Soap Opera Network for an exclusive interview, he had numerous red scratches marring his otherwise perfect digits. And suddenly, he was all the sexier. Especially when he quipped of the wounds: “Oh, I did a love scene with Alison [Sweeney, Sami] yesterday.”
As we previously reported, a few stars from “The Young and the Restless” are slated to make appearances on CBS’s popular game show, “The Price Is Right,” and next week’s schedule featuring two of the soap’s stars has been released!
Watch for Daniel Goddard (Cane Ashby) to appear alongside host Drew Carey on Tuesday, October 22, and Wednesday, October 23, and for Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman) to appear on Thursday, October 24 and Friday, October 25.
It’s been a whopping 24 years since Elizabeth Dennehy graced the daytime stage as “Guiding Light’s” Christina ‘Blake’ Thorpe Marler, and she’s finally ready to get back into soap operas. But this time, she’s headed to “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City!
It’s not hard to laugh, but across the board, daytime stars agree that it’s not easy to be funny! That being said, some of the industry’s most popular talent — “The Price Is Right’s” Drew Carey, “Let’s Make a Deal’s” Wayne Brady, and “The Talk’s” Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood — certainly make it look easy to be hilarious day in and day out. Noticing the top-notch humor present in their daytime lineup, CBS decided to gather those said stars together at Hollywood’s legendary venue, The Comedy Store, to perform an evening of standup comedy benefitting a cancer charity. The result: CBS Daytime After Dark, Stand Up to Cancer — a fun event definitely worth smiling about!
This past August, “The Young and the Restless” fans saw one of those rare circumstances when behind-the-scenes drama rivals that of the intense drama seen onscreen: actress Christel Khalil (Lily Winters) filed a lawsuit against her talent agency for reportedly being so sloppy and remiss, they sent her on an audition for the very sudser she was already working on!
According to The Wrap, attorneys for the defendant, Mavrick Artists Agency (which Khalil left prior to filing the suit) went on record saying that Khalil’s accusations were ridiculous. “There’s no way in hell that she went on an audition. That just couldn’t have happened,” the lawyers said. “Do you think ‘The Young and the Restless’ is so stupid that their casting office would have scheduled such an audition? It wasn’t an audition — it was a submission.”
