ALL THINGS RELATED

On Wednesday, January 1, 2014 - New Year's Day - CBS will air episode #6536 of "The Young and the Restless," which originally aired on December 31, 1998. The episode found family and friends gather at the Colonnade Room for a New Year’s celebration, while Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon (Sharon Case) celebrated the new year with Cassie (Camryn Grimes).
In a promo that puts emphasis on the word "new," CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is promising viewers a new year filled with new drama, infidelity, secrets, and reunions. In the case of infidelity, Billy (Billy Miller) won't let the search for his daughter's killer stop him from bumping uglies with Kelly (Cynthia Watros), while Sharon (Sharon Case) and Nicholas (Joshua Morrow) share a reunion of sorts, and Dylan (Steve Burton) wants more information from momma Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) on her secret past. Also look for Victor (Eric Braeden) and Jack (Peter Bergman) as they toast to an exciting new year!
Wanna see something guaranteed to make you giggle? Then you won’t want to miss the “The Young and the Restless’” Joshua Morrow (Nicholas Newman) in his new gig as a talk show host!

Earlier this year, Soap Opera Network covered the antics of the webseries, "Old Dogs & New Tricks." In light of its recent release on DVD and availability on Hulu, we thought you'd like to catch up with all the fun that features soap stars Thom Bierdz (ex-Phillip Chancellor, "The Young and the Restless") and Ian Buchanan (Duke Lavery, "General Hospital").

On Thursday, December 19, "The Young and the Restless'" Billy Miller said goodbye to his character Billy Abbott for the last time as the actor filmed his final scenes on the daytime drama series, which is set to air on Thursday, January 30, 2014 - the first day of the all important February sweeps ratings period.

With just 10 days to go before it goes dark for good, one piece of several puzzles surrounding the end of SOAPnet was where some of the shows currently airing on the cable network would land once it said goodbye. In a press release, Pivot announced earlier this week that it has landed the rebroadcast airing rights to "Veronica Mars," which joined the SOAPnet lineup in March 2012. In announcing its agreement with Warner Bros. Television, producers of the series, the network also announced that it has picked up rerun rights to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," which starred former "All My Children" actress Sarah Michelle Gellar (ex-Kendall Hart), as well. "Mars" starred Kristen Bell in the title role.
Event planner David Tutera is known for his extraordinary, jaw-dropping parties and weddings for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Matthew McConaughey, Elton John and “All My Children” star Susan Lucci (ex-Erica Kane), and now he’s headed to bring one lucky couple from “The Young and the Restless’” Genoa City his help in creating a magical, dream wedding!
Once the news hit that “The Young and the Restless’” Michael Muhney had been let go from the CBS soap, rumors began circling that his co-star, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman), not only could have had a hand in Muhney’s fate, but also that he influenced Maura West’s (Ava Jerome, “General Hospital;” ex-Diane Jenkins, “Y&R”) exit from the soap, as well! Upon hearing the news, both Braeden and West took to Twitter to set the rumors straight.
