CBS Corporation and Time Warner Cable (TWC) have been embroiled in a carriage dispute since the expiration of their contract on June 30, and as a result the two sides gave Wednesday, July 24 as their deadline to come to an agreement before millions of CBS viewers were left in the dark. Thankfully, the two companies continued discussions and were able to extend their deadline several times since. Last night was the latest scheduled deadline, but both parties failed to come to an agreement yet again and have now set Friday, August 2 at 5:00 PM ET as the next deadline. The extension occurred nearly a half hour after TWC blackened CBS programming in various markets.
In honor of "The Young and the Restless" moving to TVGN, the network has released a new advertisement, via TV Guide Magazine, that states "Daytime Drama Is Hotter At Night." In addition to promoting the show on TVGN, fans are asked to enter for a chance to win an exclusive "Y&R" set visit and meeting with some of the shows cast members by simply watching the soap on the network and entering a code on TVGN's Facebook page.

So by now you may or may not know that same-day airings of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" are now available on TVGN after just over seven years on SOAPnet. To keep you up-to-date with the soaps transition, we thought it best to provide new and old viewers with some tidbits on TVGN and "Y&R's" move to its new home.
As previously reported, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is moving to TVGN (née TV Guide Network) beginning Monday, July 1, after spending just over 7 years on SOAPnet. The soap will continue airing same-day episodes Monday through Friday at 7:00 PM ET/PT. In the just released new promo, "Y&R" fans will see Kristoff St. John's Neil Winters and Angell Conwell's Leslie Michaelson having a heated convo that turns to passion. In addition to the promo, TVGN has also released the full episode of "The Young and the Restless On Set: InFanity," the special hosted by St. John that provided viewers with a behind the scenes look at the creation of Genoa City, on YouTube.
As previously reported, TVGN has picked up the same-day airing rights of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" beginning with the Monday, July 1 episode. This means that this week is the final week in which fans of the SOAPnet airings will be able to catch the drama series on the never ending defunct cable network.
