“The Young and the Restless’” <strong>Gina Tognoni</strong> is having the time of her life. Just seven months after reporting to the CBS Television City studio, where the daytime drama series is filmed, Tognoni is grateful for the warm welcome she’s received from viewers and the daytime community as a whole. Fresh off a pre-nomination in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series category, for her role as Phyllis Summers on “Y&R,” Tognoni shares with us what it’s like playing such an interesting and dynamic character, provides insight into the Phyllis, Jack (<strong>Peter Bergman</strong>) and Kelly (<strong>Cady McClain</strong>) triangle, and which actors and characters she'd love to share more screen time with.

While CBS is currently producing a latenight version of its popular daytime talk show this week, as it waits out the March launch of "The Late Late Show with James Corden," that daytime version of "The Talk" has just surpassed ABC's competiting "The View" in total viewers for the first time ever. During the week of January 5, "The Talk" had a 2% lead on "The View" in total viewers (2.95 million vs. 2.88 million). Meanwhile, both shows tied in both Women 25-54 (1.0 rating) and Women 18-49 (0.7 rating).

CBS Daytime is celebrating Thanksgiving early with a buffet of holiday-themed episodes of all of its daytime shows, including “The Bold and the Beautiful” and “The Young and the Restless,” which will air on <strong>Wednesday, November 26</strong>.

CBS’ late-night legend <strong>David Letterman</strong> may be hanging up his hat as “The Late Show” host next year, but could he continue on in another capacity within the network? Judging from an audition tape he put together last week for “The Young and the Restless,” he just might land a spot on daytime’s most popular sudser!

The wedding of Nicholas and Sharon Newman (<strong>Joshua Morrow</strong> and <strong>Sharon Case</strong>) kicked off yesterday, October 3, but before the couple can say their "I Do's," Phyllis Summers (<strong>Gina Tognoni</strong>) is back in town and getting ready to crash the wedding, but will she get there in time? Viewers who tuned into the episode found Phyllis get stopped by a cop who's apparently there to arrest or detain her, but in the promo for next week's episodes, Phyllis rolls up in the chapel ready to reveal all, and Sharon's a devastated mess. "I don't know what she knows," an emotional Sharon says to Nicholas, who wonders if it's about the secret (which secret?) that has her all flustered. Of course, it could all be just a dream. Hmm...

“The Young and the Restless” has cemented its spot as the number one daytime drama for the past 25 years with a record of outstanding decisions, and the sudser’s latest flawless move was the addition of Emmy-winning actress <strong>Gina Tognoni</strong>, who took over the role of Phyllis Summers (previously portrayed by <strong>Michelle Stafford</strong>, Nina Clay, “General Hospital”) this year. The Missouri native showed off her serious acting chops as “Guiding Light’s” Dinah Marler and “One Life to Live’s” Kelly Cramer, and now that Phyllis is finally out of her lengthy coma and headed back to Genoa City starting this week, Tognoni will be giving soap fans yet another dose of her powerhouse skills — but this time, as the feisty GC diva “Y&R” fans have loved since she hit the scene back in 1994!

With his character married to Summer (<strong>Hunter King</strong>), following an altercation with Paul (<strong>Doug Davidson</strong>) that resulted in Genoa City's top cop getting shot, it was only a matter of time before "The Young and the Restless" locked down actor <strong>Matthew Atkinson</strong> (Austin) with a contract. <em>CBS Soaps In Depth </em>is <a href="http://cbs.soapsindepth.com/2014/09/exclusive-yr-signs-atkinson-to-contract.html" target="_blank">reporting</a> the soap has done just that!

While she's already been airing for just over a month on CBS' "The Young and the Restless," actress <strong>Gina Tognoni</strong> will officially join the residents of Genoa City when she brings Phyllis Summers back to town after the character had been in a coma for more than a year. In a newly released promo, the network touts the debut of Tognoni on the soap as she declares trouble is coming to town after being "well rested and ready."

Featuring the long-awaited return of <strong>Shemar Moore</strong> as Malcolm Winters, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" posted its largest weekly audience and best Women 18-49 rating since March, per Nielsen Media Research ratings data. Did Moore help boost the soap?

It’s been almost eight months since “The Young and the Restless’” Adam Newman was declared dead following a horrific showdown and subsequent car crash with Billy Abbott. And since most of the town believed he’d perished in the fiery accident, they’ll be getting quite a shock when the very-much-alive CEO — now played by former “Passions” star Justin Hartley — makes a surprise return to Genoa City, which Soap Opera Network has exclusively learned will take place on Wednesday, November 5!

The next on the train of blasts from the past: Original cast member Tom Hallick, who played sexy neurosurgeon-turned-news reporter Brad Eliot from 1973-1978! But his return on Friday, September 26 comes with a twist!

“The Young and the Restless’” Hunter King (Summer Newman) didn’t win this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Younger Actress for nothing: Her storyline has been chock full of exciting ups and downs — and according to the actress, it’s only going to get crazier as the summer continues!

After nearly a year in a coma, CBS' "The Young and the Restless" will once again say hello to Phyllis Summers when daytime veteran Gina Tognoni takes over the role beginning Monday, August 11, Soap Opera Network has learned exclusively. In our tribute to the character as she gets ready to wake up for the first time in the coming weeks, we take a look back at what Phyllis has missed while she was sleeping, including what former loves Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) have been up to since last seeing their favorite feisty redhead.

Famous for her red hair, Phyllis Summers on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is about to get a new face. As previously reported, Gina Tognoni ("Guiding Light," "One Life to Live") is set to take on the role previously portrayed by Michelle Stafford, who is now appearing on ABC's "General Hospital." For fans wondering if Tognoni will be bringing back the fiery red look, the actress recently tweeted a response using an interesting hair quote/factoid.

Now that Michelle Stafford has signed on to portray the contract role of Nina Clay on ABC's "General Hospital," it was only a matter of time before CBS' "The Young and the Restless" opted to recast her Daytime Emmy Award winning role. Earlier this month the soap announced they were doing just that after putting out a casting call for the role, which was recently landed by soap veteran Gina Tognoni.
