Daytime soaps have seen a resurgence of sorts in the past few months, but some worried it would be short lived when last week’s ratings slightly fell. But fear not, soap fans, as both “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless” ratings have gone up yet again.
It’s been 23 years since Kristoff St. John stepped into the role of “The Young and the Restless’” Neil Winters, and since that time, the New York native has given countless interviews giving fans a detailed glimpse into the man he is when the cameras aren’t rolling. But despite all of the revealing material, there’s still a large part of St. John’s life that hasn’t been unearthed — until now! The actor has just finished completion of a horrifying documentary film detailing his family’s unsuccessful 1980s quest to find God in India, and Soap Opera Network spoke with him about the groundbreaking film and how the childhood experience shaped him as a human being.

Today marks the first day of the all-important February Sweeps ratings period, and “The Young and the Restless” went all out with not only dramatic scenes between besties Chloe (Elizabeth Hendrickson) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan), but also a gripping face-off between Billy (Billy Miller) and Adam (Michael Muhney) that led to both actors’ final appearance on the show!
Another day, another drama. At least, that seems to be the case for “The Young and the Restless’” Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), who is juggling so many Genoa City cases as Chief of Police, it’s tough to keep all of the details straight! His onscreen wife, Christine (Lauralee Bell), isn’t exactly thrilled that her new hubby is so busy, especially because he took the time to help Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) track down the truth about her son, Dylan (Steve Burton). And unfortunately for her, it looks like Paul’s busy schedule won’t be letting up any time soon! We spoke with the character’s portrayer, Davidson, to get the scoop on whether or not Paul’s work will destroy his relationship and where Nikki might fit into the puzzle. Read on to find out!
