Despite CBS airing news coverage on the House Select Committee’s public hearings on the January 6th Capitol Assault, “The Young and the Restless” aired at least half of today’s regularly scheduled all-new episode. As such, the full episode will be available to view on demand, the CBS App and Paramount+. In time zones where coverage was not impacted, the episode aired without interruption.
Viewers looking forward to the special standalone episode honoring Eileen Davidson and Beth Maitland for their 40-year contribution to the series, playing sisters Ashley Abbott and Traci Abbott, respectively, can expect to see the episode air on Friday, June 17, Soap Opera Network can confirm. The episode was originally scheduled to air on Thursday, June 16 but was pushed back following Monday’s preemption which included earlier testimony from the aforementioned public hearings. A repeat aired in timezones not impacted by CBS’ coverage.
The special episode of “Y&R” finds the Abbott sisters sitting down at Society with their newly discovered grandniece, Allie (Kelsey Wang), as they share information about their lives with the hope that they’ll eventually get to learn more about Allie’s own experiences as well. Look for the episode to find the pair reminiscing with their brother, Jack (Peter Bergman), and Ashley’s daughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway), among others, as they take a trip down memory lane filled with flashbacks and memorable moments.
