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."
