The recent behind-the-scenes drama over at “The Young and the Restless” has created quite a storm, but a little bit of sunshine broke through the clouds today when CBS announced it has renewed the 40-year-old soap opera through 2017. Fans of the show have taken to Twitter to congratulate the cast and crew, and they’re not alone in the celebration: The actors are also thrilled that the sudser they call home received the official extension.
CBS' "The Young and the Restless" has officially clocked 25 consecutive years as daytime's #1 drama series. The soap is pacing for its largest audience to begin a season since the 2011-2012 television season with 5.1 million viewers tuning in on average to the trials and tribulations of Genoa City's elite. "I am so proud of the talented cast and crew, past and present, for making 'The Young and the Restless' #1 for 25 years," said Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime. "A special thank you to our loyal and passionate fans for helping us reach this incredible milestone."
It’s been exactly one year since Argentinian actor Ignacio Serricchio first aired as “The Young and the Restless’” Alejandro “Alex” Chavez, and there are a few things fans of the show have learned about the actor in that year: He’s incredibly talented, he’s incredibly sexy, and he’s incredibly kind. But when Soap Opera Network recently caught up with him at one of his stand-up comedy performances (yes, he does stand-up comedy), we learned that he’s much more talented, sexy and kind than anyone even imagines. And we’ve got the quotes to prove it!
As previously reported, Billy Miller is departing CBS' "The Young and the Restless" and the role of Billy Abbott, which garnered him two Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. After the actor and Sony Pictures Television failed to reach an agreement on a new contract, the studio and CBS opted to replace Miller with David Tom, who actually originated the role of an adult Billy Abbott in 1999.
With Billy Miller unable to reach a new deal with Sony Pictures Television, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will soon say goodbye to the actor and hello again to David Tom, who originated the role of an adult Billy Abbott in 1999. News of Miller's exit and Tom's return was first reported by Michael Logan of TV Guide Magazine on Twitter, but has since been confirmed by Angelica McDaniel, Senior Vice President, CBS Daytime, also on Twitter.

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!
