ALL THINGS RELATED

“The Young and the Restless” airs Weekdays on CBS. Weeknights on Pop TV. Anytime on CBS.com or the CBS app on Android and iOS enabled devices.

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.
Despite signing a new four-year contract with CBS' "The Young and the Restless" back in April of this year, Michael Muhney (Adam Newman) has been let go from the daytime soap he's called home since 2009. The actor tweeted yesterday, "I'm so sorry. It breaks my heart to say this, but I was just let go from Y&R. My last day on set is this Thursday. My last air date will be Jan 30th. I'm going to take some private time with my wife & kids, as I am most concerned for their well-being. I have 3 final episodes to film, and because they are my last, I will be giving it everything I have. More details will follow... #xoxoxo." Prior to the actor's tweet, he hadn't commented on the popular social network site since November 5. In a posting earlier today, he noted that his daughter, Ella, is celebrating her 6th birthday today.
The cast and crew of “The Young and the Restless” have a major milestone to smile about: The CBS sudser has officially marked its 25 year anniversary of being the number one rated soap opera on national television! In honor of the very special occasion, Soap Opera Network spoke with longtime castmember Doug Davidson (Paul Williams), who’s been with the show since 1978, to discuss the elements that have gone into keeping “Y&R” in the coveted top-notch position for so long.
