The Young and the Restless

"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" has been entertaining millions of late night talk show fans since debuting earlier this year as an escape from late night talk shows. The premise of the HBO series is that host John Oliver takes a closer look at the happenings of the past week in terms of news, politics and social media, and culls it altogether into one half hour of entertainment that seeks to empower and inform its viewers. In a segment highlighting a "CBS This Morning" report on a device known as the Salmon Cannon, Oliver, who was so in awe of the Salmon Cannon concept, gives viewers insight into the purpose (it helps push the Salmon that typically get caught in hydroelectric dams over said dams) and decided to make his own, which resulted in the flying fish hitting several of television's biggest stars including "The Young and the Restless'" Sharon Case (Sharon Newman) during a made up "Y&R" scene featuring co-star Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) as the two fight over Sharon's hidden secrets.
The November Sweeps ratings period is a time where the daytime soaps pull out all the stops to attract new and old viewers with big events, big reveals and big returns. No other soap has all three points nailed down as CBS' "The Young and the Restless," which will give viewers another dose of Grace Turner (Jennifer Gareis), now that Mariah (Camryn Grimes) has officially been revealed to be Sharon's (Sharon Case) daughter, while also giving fans insight into what Sharon's childhood friend, Amy Wilson (Julianna Morris Polaha), has been up to since last being seen in Genoa City. The soap will also welcome former "M*A*S*H" star Sally Kellerman to the cast in the newly created role of Constance Bingham. To ensure viewers are well versed into the happenings on screen and behind the scenes during this very important month, Soap Opera Network is breaking down who's coming, who's going, and when to expect those pesky preemptions we all love (to hate).
While the date for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards wasn't necessarily a secret, it was still somewhat surprising when it was revealed that next year's Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards would be taking place on Friday, April 24 and the big show would be taking place on Sunday, April 26 - the earliest either ceremony will have taken place since at least 2006. In an interview with David Michaels, Senior Executive Director and Co-Executive Producer for the Daytime Emmy Awards & Events, who notes to Soap Opera Network that we can likely thank "The Young and the Restless'" Christian Le Blanc (Michael Baldwin) for revealing the dates online, the executive addresses the red carpet debacle that rocked the industry earlier this year, while also providing insight into what we can look forward to seeing from both the creative side and the broadcast side for next year's telecast, and a greater understanding of how four new categories will change the future of the awards ceremony.
As the saying goes, "Remember, remember! The fifth of November," in reference to the fifth day of the month of November, which got a modern boost in understanding via the Natalie Portman vehicle "V for Vendetta," some CBS Daytime soap fans will remember the day for a presidential press conference that resulted in their favorite soaps being interrupted in several markets, including the second largest market - Los Angeles! As a result, those impacted markets will offer makegoods, which finds stations re-running a program that may have been interrupted in any significant way in its corrected form at a later time. "The Bold and the Beautiful" did not air in nearly 11% of the country, while "The Young and the Restless" did not air in nearly 7% of the country.
If seeing “The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) appear on both his CBS Daytime home and in his recurring role as “Under the Dome’s” Hunter isn’t enough for you, then you’re in luck: The actor will soon be showing up on Nickelodeon’s new comedic series, “100 Things To Do Before High School!”
Before enjoying your annual Thanksgiving meal with friends and family on Thursday, November 27, one day earlier - Wednesday, November 26 - the men of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will provide plenty of thanks for viewers of "The Queen Latifah Show" as the talk show welcomes actors Peter Bergman (Jack), Justin Hartley (Adam), Daniel Goddard (Cane), Bryton James (Devon) and Joshua Morrow (Nicholas) to the program to chat with Queen Latifah herself.

Emmy-award winning soap star Eileen Davidson has plenty of experience dealing with drama, having played “The Young and the Restless’” Ashley Abbott since 1982 and “Days of our Lives’” Kristen DiMera since 1993, but the actress is admittedly having a bit of trouble adjusting to the intense drama she’s enduring as part of the upcoming season of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills!”
