CBS Daytime’s “The Price is Right” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” are joining forces with “The Young and the Restless” to pay tribute to the life of the late Jeanne Cooper, who for more than 39 years portrayed Katherine Chancellor on daytime’s most watched drama series.
With almost 30 years of memories to pull from, “The Young and Restless’” Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren Fenmore) can’t be forced to name her favorite “Y&R” moment. Because, as she so aptly puts it, “There have been so many!” But as she celebrates being back on contract with the show (something she’s been on again/off again since she started back in 1983), she’s thrilled to be playing out what she thinks is one of Lauren’s greatest story arcs yet.
On Tuesday, March 26, CBS’ “The Young and the Restless” will celebrate its 40th anniversary and in honor of the event, stars from the daytime drama series will be popping up on multiple CBS Daytime programs.
As previously reported, Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott), Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), Amelia Heinle (Victoria Newman Abbott), Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman), Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Summers) and Kristoff St. John (Neil Winters) will appear on the Monday, March 25 celebratory edition of “The Talk.”
Tuesday, March 26 marks the 40th anniversary of “The Young and the Restless’” very first episode, and in celebration, the show is offering up plenty of special glimpses into its iconic past. For starters, the soap’s official website currently features 40th Anniversary photo galleries and videos, and there’s an option for fans to answer trivia questions for a chance to win a VIP trip to Los Angeles to tour the set and attend the show’s on-set Anniversary event. But as Angelica McDaniel, the Senior Vice President of CBS Daytime, says: The show’s 40th Anniversary is also the perfect opportunity to start focusing on what’s ahead.
There’s no doubt that “The Young and the Restless” has one of the hottest casts on daytime television — strike that, all of television — and as the show gears up for its 40th Anniversary, things are about to get even spicier! The show’s execs recently gathered some of the soap’s hot new faces together for a special event, and Soap Opera Network went along for the ride. Warning: What we found out about sexy stars Robert Adamson (Noah Newman), Lamon Archey (Mason Wilder) and Marco Dapper (Carmine Basco) just may surprise you!
