ALL THINGS RELATED

As previously reported, "Criminal Minds" star Shemar Moore is returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" on Wednesday, September 10 and Thursday, September 11, to once again portray his iconic role of Malcolm Winters on the daytime drama series. In a newly released promo set to the song "More, More, More" by Clooney, the network is getting fans pumped with shots of Moore on a studio lot in between filming takes (not "Y&R") and generally being his oh, so sexy self. No storyline details were revealed, however.
“The Young and the Restless’” Max Ehrich (Fenmore Baldwin) hasn’t been seen much in Genoa City these days, but the young actor is still very much a part of the CBS family — as computer hacker Hunter on the network’s primetime series, “Under the Dome!” Soap Opera Network caught up with Ehrich shortly after he returned from North Carolina (where “Dome” films) to get the scoop on his new nighttime alter ego and when fans can look forward to seeing him back at “Y&R!”
As we previously reported, “The Young and the Restless’” is honoring the one-year anniversary of Katherine Chancellor’s (Jeanne Cooper) onscreen death with a remembrance ceremony in Chancellor Park. The touching episodes began yesterday, Tuesday, August 26, with a special appearance by Michael Fairman (Patrick Murphy). And today, they continue with a return by Nina (Tricia Cast), who flies in from Los Angeles to honor her dearly departed friend. Tune in today, Wednesday, August 27, to see part two of the special episodes.
They say home is where the heart is, and it’s a saying that members of “The Young and the Restless’” Winters family take literally. Not only have brothers Neil (Kristoff St. John) and Malcolm (Shemar Moore) shared Drucilla (Victoria Rowell), Alex (Alexia Robinson), Sofia (Julia Pace Mitchell) and Olivia (Tonya Lee Williams) in some way or another, Neil’s adopted son, Devon (Bryton James), has followed in the family tradition: He and Neil’s wife, Hilary (Mishael Morgan), are secretly in love with each other! Add into the mix Neil’s recent blindness, his past with alcoholism and a flash return visit by his brother, Malcolm, and you’ve got one heck of a mess that’s sure to make “Y&R’s” Fall Sweeps a can’t-miss event! Soap Opera Network met up with St. John to get the scoop on the juicy drama ahead, and he reveals that what you’re seeing now is just the tip of the iceberg!
As they celebrated their first anniversary as hosts of "Soap Box with Lilly & Martha" on Thursday, August 21, former daytime soap stars Lilly Melgar ("General Hospital") and Martha Madison ("Days of our Lives") had soap journalist Michael Maloney, talent manager Michael Bruno and online soap reporter Michael Fairman on as guests as they discussed the week's biggest soap opera news. No story was bigger this past week than the news of Justin Hartley ("Passions," "Revenge," "Mistresses") returning to daytime television to portray a recast Adam Newman on CBS' "The Young and the Restless." According to Bruno, however, there was a chance that the role could have gone to Hartley's former "Smallville" co-star Tom Welling, "Sex and the City's" Jason Lewis or "Queer as Folk's'" Gale Harold.
On "The Young and the Restless," Ian Ward (Ray Wise) has kidnapped Mariah (Camryn Grimes), who was just revealed to be Sharon Newman's (Sharon Case) biological daughter after months of will they [the writers] or won't they, and Sharon is none too pleased with the "sociopath." She demands that he give her back her daughter, while Ian informs her that the clock is ticking. Meanwhile, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) is dangling with bottle issues as she ponders how much more a woman can take without breaking into a million pieces, or taking a drink in this case. Will this latest drama push Nikki over the edge? Tune into CBS' "The Young and the Restless" next week to find out!
In 2012, Soap Opera Network published our own version of the annual TV Guide Magazine "TV's Highest Paid Stars" issue. In the time since it was published we've been quite shocked to see how many of you were curious to know how much some of daytime and primetime's biggest and brightest stars of yesteryear have gone on to make with their current work in primetime dramas and comedies, reality shows, and even daytime talk shows. Although we were unable to continue our report in 2013 due to circumstances beyond our control, we thought it would be a great opportunity to continue producing the soap opera edition of one of TV Guide's best selling issues with the release of the 2014 edition.
After being challenged by "The Young and the Restless" co-star Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea Newman), Greg Rikaart (Kevin Fisher) has exclusively shared with Soap Opera Network video of himself taking part in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, which included a surprise appearance by best friend and neighbor, Rebecca Budig (ex-Greenlee Smythe, "All My Children").
There’s a family affair going on over in “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City, but it isn’t of the picnic variety: Neil (Kristoff St. John) has no idea that his wife, Hilary (Mishael Morgan), and his adopted son, Devon (Bryton James), are in love with each other! Will the newly blind man find out about the emotional betrayal? And if so, what does it mean for the father/son pair and the future of the Winters family? Soap Opera Network caught up with Bryton James to get the scoop!
