Earlier today the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, in cooperation with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, announced the Drama Performer Pre-Nominations for this year's Daytime Emmy Awards.

When a fan of CBS' "The Young and the Restless" tweeted, "Can all my soap followers do me a favor and send some love and support to @HunterHaleyKing? Thanks! #YR," following reports of an alleged groping of her breasts by King's former co-star Michael Muhney (Adam Newman), who was reportedly fired from the drama series last month as a result of the incident, the quest for love and support for the actress, who plays Summer Newman on the daytime soap opera, came in droves.

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! The actor has teamed up with “Y&R” production staffer Greg Edwards to create a humorous show titled “Soaps and Other Stuff,” which features “Y&R” stars answering ridiculous questions, playing silly games and being subjected to a multitude of other antics all dreamed up and acted out by Morrow himself as “host.”

CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is in a celebratory mood today as the soap is enjoying 25 consecutive years as daytime television's most watched drama series. As part of its continued success, the soap is also enjoying its best season average in total viewers since the 2011-2012 television season. To show their appreciation to fans for their support, cast and crew took the time to pose with a banner that states: "The Young and the Restless: #1 For 25 Years." To honor this feet, Soap Opera Network has gathered all the images published on social media for your one stop viewing pleasure.

Goblins and witches and ghosts, oh my! And no, we’re not talking about the millions of children who’ll be cavorting around as such on All Hallow’s Eve next week. We’re talking about the stars of “The Bold and the Beautiful,” “The Young and the Restless,” “The Price Is Right,” “The Talk” and “Let’s Make a Deal,” as all five shows are featuring Halloween themed episodes on Thursday, October 31, complete with fun and creepy costumes!

Hot on the heels of TVGN’s “The Young and the Restless On-Set: inFANity” special celebrating the network’s acquisition of “Y&R” (whose same day evening episodes are moving from SoapNet to TVGN beginning Monday, July 1 at 7PM ET/PT) comes the much anticipated “Countdown to the Young and the Restless” special, which features a live audience asking questions of the sudser’s biggest stars!

After over two decades of playing “General Hospital’s” Jason Morgan, beloved soap actor Steve Burton decided to walk away from Port Charles for a break from the spotlight — only to turn around and join “The Young and the Restless” as Dylan McAvoy a few months later! Soap Opera Network caught up with the daytime vet during a special “Y&R” TV Guide Network launch party, and he opened up about changing networks as well as fast becoming right at home in Genoa City.

The summer is looking good for “The Young and the Restless,” especially with this latest news: Fan favorite Michael Graziadei (Daniel Romalotti) is returning to the sudser for four episodes!

Without further adieu, here are the pre-nominees:

Earlier today we posted our ratings report for the week of February 4-8, 2013 and it looks as though the debut of Steve Burton on "The Young and the Restless" and Jack Wagner's return to "General Hospital" have helped bring new (or returning) viewers back to daytime television.

As previously reported, daytime veteran Steve Burton ("General Hospital," "Days of our Lives") will debut Tuesday, January 29 on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" as Dylan McAvoy, a rugged ex-soldier holding a secret upon his arrival in Genoa City. The character looks to be primarily interacting with Joshua Morrow's Nicholas Newman and Jessica Collins' Avery Clark, at least initially.
