As it gears up to broadcast its first major awards telecast with the "42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards" on Sunday, April 26, Pop has released the Daytime Emmy Nominee Reels for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. Competing this year for the coveted trophy are Peggy McCay as Caroline Brady and Alison Sweeney as Sami Brady, respectively, on "Days of our Lives," Maura West as Ava Jerome and Laura Wright as Carly Jacks, respectively, on "General Hospital," and Gina Tognoni as Phyllis Summers on "The Young and the Restless."
Since joining the cast of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" in early 2014, Cady McClain [ex-Dixie Martin, "All My Children"; ex-Rosanna Cabot, "As The World Turns"] has seen her character, Kelly Andrews, finally deal with several family matters that have helped shape her into who she is today. "Her child died, her marriage broke up, her mom was a drunk and was very unstable. She thought her father was good, and it turns out her father was abusive. So Kelly had a really rough life experience. I hope that the fans kind of remember that. She's really hanging on by her fingernails and trying to make this life, and Jack is a real key... falling in love," McClain says in an exclusive interview with Soap Opera Network, following the Tuesday, February 17 episode of "Y&R," which found Jack Abbott's (Peter Bergman) actions contradict his words when he once again became intimate with Kelly as they did the deed in the storage room of The Underground.

“The Young and the Restless’” Gina Tognoni is having the time of her life. Just seven months after reporting to the CBS Television City studio, where the daytime drama series is filmed, Tognoni is grateful for the warm welcome she’s received from viewers and the daytime community as a whole. Fresh off a pre-nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category, for her role as Phyllis Summers on “Y&R,” Tognoni shares with us what it’s like playing such an interesting and dynamic character, provides insight into the Phyllis, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Kelly (Cady McClain) triangle, and which actors and characters she'd love to share more screen time with.
While CBS is currently producing a latenight version of its popular daytime talk show this week, as it waits out the March launch of "The Late Late Show with James Corden," that daytime version of "The Talk" has just surpassed ABC's competiting "The View" in total viewers for the first time ever. During the week of January 5, "The Talk" had a 2% lead on "The View" in total viewers (2.95 million vs. 2.88 million). Meanwhile, both shows tied in both Women 25-54 (1.0 rating) and Women 18-49 (0.7 rating).
CBS Daytime is celebrating Thanksgiving early with a buffet of holiday-themed episodes of all of its daytime shows, including “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” which will air on Wednesday, November 26.
The newest cast members of “The Young and the Restless” Scott Elrod (Joe Clark), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis Summers) joined co-hosts Sheryl Underwood, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Aisha Tyler and Julie Chen, along with guest co-host Pat Harvey, on today's edition of CBS' "The Talk" as the actors discussed some of the exciting new storylines in store for their characters and much more!
On Friday, October 24, "The Young and the Restless'" newest stars, Scott Elrod (Joe Clark), Justin Hartley (Adam Newman), Burgess Jenkins (Billy Abbott) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis Summers), will be appearing on CBS' "The Talk" to discuss their joining daytime's most watched drama series. The actors are expected to provide some insight into their characters and what life has been like since entering Genoa City.
CBS’ late-night legend David Letterman may be hanging up his hat as “The Late Show” host next year, but could he continue on in another capacity within the network? Judging from an audition tape he put together last week for “The Young and the Restless,” he just might land a spot on daytime’s most popular sudser!
The wedding of Nicholas and Sharon Newman (Joshua Morrow and Sharon Case) kicked off yesterday, October 3, but before the couple can say their "I Do's," Phyllis Summers (Gina Tognoni) is back in town and getting ready to crash the wedding, but will she get there in time? Viewers who tuned into the episode found Phyllis get stopped by a cop who's apparently there to arrest or detain her, but in the promo for next week's episodes, Phyllis rolls up in the chapel ready to reveal all, and Sharon's a devastated mess. "I don't know what she knows," an emotional Sharon says to Nicholas, who wonders if it's about the secret (which secret?) that has her all flustered. Of course, it could all be just a dream. Hmm...
“The Young and the Restless” has cemented its spot as the number one daytime drama for the past 25 years with a record of outstanding decisions, and the sudser’s latest flawless move was the addition of Emmy-winning actress Gina Tognoni, who took over the role of Phyllis Summers (previously portrayed by Michelle Stafford, Nina Clay, “General Hospital”) this year. The Missouri native showed off her serious acting chops as “Guiding Light’s” Dinah Marler and “One Life to Live’s” Kelly Cramer, and now that Phyllis is finally out of her lengthy coma and headed back to Genoa City starting this week, Tognoni will be giving soap fans yet another dose of her powerhouse skills — but this time, as the feisty GC diva “Y&R” fans have loved since she hit the scene back in 1994!
With his character married to Summer (Hunter King), following an altercation with Paul (Doug Davidson) that resulted in Genoa City's top cop getting shot, it was only a matter of time before "The Young and the Restless" locked down actor Matthew Atkinson (Austin) with a contract. CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting the soap has done just that!
While she's already been airing for just over a month on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," actress Gina Tognoni will officially join the residents of Genoa City when she brings Phyllis Summers back to town after the character had been in a coma for more than a year. In a newly released promo, the network touts the debut of Tognoni on the soap as she declares trouble is coming to town after being "well rested and ready."
