In CBS’ newest comedy hit, “Friends with Better Lives,” a group of friends who are either married, divorced, newly engaged or single, secretly question who has it better? With that in mind, on its official website for the series, CBS asks fans to answer that very question in relation to several of its popular series and its characters, including “The Young and the Restless” and “The Bold and the Beautiful.”
On “B&B,” the site asks who has it better between brothers Liam Spencer (aka: #TheNiceGuy; Scott Clifton) and Wyatt Fuller (aka: #TheBadBoy; Darin Brooks).
As we previously reported, “The Young and the Restless’” Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) is guest-starring on tonight’s episode of CBS’ hit sitcom, “The Crazy Ones.” The actress will be playing boozy librarian named Flora who enlists the help of Simon (Robin Williams) and his team to help her save her library.
To catch the one-hour season finale episode of the series, which also stars Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart, “All My Children”), tune into CBS tonight at 9:00 PM ET/PT.
The leading women of Lifetime’s “Devious Maids” better have buckets upon buckets of cleaning supplies at the ready, because the series’ second season premieres this weekend, and it looks like the stories will be messier than ever!
Stars Ana Ortiz (Marisol), Dania Ramirez (Rosie), Roselyn Sanchez (Carmen) Edy Ganem (Valentina) and Judy Reyes (Zoila) return to the screen on Sunday, April 20 in an exciting pickup of last season: As viewers may recall, the finale ended with Marisol, Zoila, Rosie and Carmen exposing the murderer of another maid, Flora (Paula Garces)!
During “The Young and the Restless’” recent 41st anniversary celebration, Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott) told Soap Opera Network that he’s one of the luckiest men in daytime. And if you look at his embarrassment of riches — an impressive 33 year career in soaps, numerous Emmy nominations and wins, exciting storylines, and talented co-stars — it’s easy to see what he means. But lately, he’s been feeling exceptionally blessed. Read on to find out why!
“The Young and the Restless” viewers were hit with a one-two punch regarding the role of Kelly Andrews: Former portrayer Cynthia Watros was officially announced as stepping out of the role in order to take part in MTV’s new series “Finding Carter,” while Emmy winner Cady McClain (Dixie, “All My Children;” Roseanna, “As the World Turns”) was announced to be stepping into the role of the grieving mother. But how did the exciting swap come about? Read on to find out from the actress, who makes her Genoa City debut this Wednesday, April 16!
For those of you who have been tuning in to see “The Young and the Restless’” Ignacio Serricchio (Alex Chavez) during season nine of Fox’s series, “Bones,” the actor has good news: He’s fairly certain he’ll be appearing in season 10, as well!
“Hopefully I’ll be back for season 10. I’m pretty sure I will: I’ve talked with the execs and they really like my character,” he tells Soap Opera Network. “I’ve been having a great time. I love everybody there.”
But as for whether or not he’ll be appearing on “Y&R” any time in the near future remains to be seen. “Alex is still around, but he’s probably on some very, very undercover assignment,” jokes the actor, who’s on recurring status with the sudser. “But I’ll be back: They can’t get rid of me that easily!”

Rumors had been swirling all weekend and now Soap Opera Digest is reporting that former “All My Children” actor, and “The Price is Right” male model, Robert Scott Wilson (ex-Pete Cortlandt) has joined the cast of NBC’s “Days of our Lives” as a recast Ben Rogers. He replaces daytime newcomer Justin Gaston, who in real-life is married to “The Young and the Restless’” Melissa Ordway (Abby Newman).
Per the publication, Wilson had already been on set filming in January as the series celebrated its two year renewal by NBC. As a result, Wilson’s first airdate isn’t expected until at least next month due to the soaps four to five months ahead filming schedule – Gaston began filming on the series in mid-October and didn’t air until late February.
Corday Productions, which produces “DAYS,” has not confirmed any casting changes per its policy.
Fur is flying over on “The Young and the Restless,” but it’s more than just of the coat variety during the sudser’s big fashion show this week: The recent rivalry between Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) comes to a dramatic and rather violent head beginning today, and the fallout may change the canvas forever!
Good news, sports fans: “The Young and the Restless” is scoring another appearance by Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Champion Michael Robinson!
The fullback, who last appeared as a businessman in the Thursday, March 13 episode of the sudser, will be back to CBS on Wednesday, April 16 to tape scenes that will air on Monday, May 19. According to Soap Opera Digest, Robinson will appear in scenes with Eric Braeden (Victor) and Sean Carrigan (Stitch).
