When thinking of daytime dramas like “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” extreme drama, intrigue, love and romance probably come to mind. But how about comedy? Is laughter an important component within daytime dramas?
With "The Young and the Restless" losing its leading men in a one-two punch, as both Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) and Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) filmed their last scenes on Thursday, December 19, cast and crew of daytime's most watched drama series have put together video tributes to honor the departing stars.
CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is in a celebratory mood today as the soap is enjoying 25 consecutive years as daytime television's most watched drama series. As part of its continued success, the soap is also enjoying its best season average in total viewers since the 2011-2012 television season. To show their appreciation to fans for their support, cast and crew took the time to pose with a banner that states: "The Young and the Restless: #1 For 25 Years." To honor this feet, Soap Opera Network has gathered all the images published on social media for your one stop viewing pleasure.
If you thought sitting down with family and friends for Thanksgiving was going to be the highlight of the week, wait until you see what “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” have in store for the holiday!

As playwright Oscar Wilde once said, true friends stab you in the front. And so begins the inevitable downward spiral between “The Young and the Restless” besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), two female characters who’ve become a daytime rarity — true best friends — and whose recent storyline is setting the pair up to potentially take a serious fall. Will the recent death of Chloe’s daughter, Delia, followed by the heart wrenching transplant of the little girl’s corneas to Chelsea’s infant son, Conner, followed by the possible news that Conner’s father, Adam (Michael Muhney) is responsible for Delia’s death end up tearing the best friends apart? Soap Opera Network spoke with both Egan and Hendrickson for the scoop!

Goblins and witches and ghosts, oh my! And no, we’re not talking about the millions of children who’ll be cavorting around as such on All Hallow’s Eve next week.

As we previously reported, Eileen Davidson is making a return to “The Young and the Restless” as Ashley Abbott, but don’t expect the sunshine and lollipops that surrounded her last return to Genoa City (for Victor’s wedding); the tragic death of Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Billy’s (Billy Miller) daughter, Delia, is what brings the makeup maven back for three episodes.
Anyone who’s watched the past few days of “The Young and the Restless” knows that it has been heart wrenching, to say the least. The hit-and-run accident that caused the death of Billy and Chloe’s young daughter, Delia, has been center stage, and the performances that have gone along with the emotional storyline are what Emmy dreams are made of. We caught up with Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), who not only had plenty of kudos for her onscreen best friend, Elizabeth Hendrickson, but also had a few details as to how the tragic story will affect Chelsea... and beyond.
