"General Hospital's" mysterious Dixon, who Paul Hornsby (<strong>Richard Burgi</strong>) has been heard conversing with for the last several weeks, has finally been identified as actor <strong>Troy Ruptash</strong>, who debuts in the recurring role beginning <strong>Friday, February 19</strong>, <em>Soap Opera Network</em> has learned.

Lachlan Buchanan (Kyle Abbott, "The Young and the Restless") will portray Navy Petty Officer James Muldoon, who witnesses a crime and comes to the aid of someone in need in the <strong>Tuesday, March 1</strong> episode of "NCIS," titled "After Hours."

"The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Scott Elrod</strong> (Joe Clark) will be playing an Army doctor on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," which returns with all-new episodes beginning <strong>Thursday, February 11</strong> after airing its winter finale last month.

After terrorizing Genoa City for half the year with everyone wondering who killed some of "The Young and the Restless'" most beautiful people, actor <strong>Chris McKenna</strong> (ex-Detective Mark Harding) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChrisLMcKenna/status/676895427984302080" target="_blank">announced</a> that he'll next appear on an upcoming episode of CBS' "NCIS: New Orleans."

Compiling ratings data from production studio sources for the period beginning January 1 and ending October 31, <em>Vulture</em> recently <a href="http://www.vulture.com/2015/12/most-popular-us-tv-shows-around-the-world.html" target="_blank">reported</a> some of the most watched shows in 18 countries, including Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, Poland, Hungary and Italy, and the publication found the likes of "NCIS," "Criminal Minds," "The Flash," "The Blacklist," "Grey's Anatomy" and the recently concluded "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" still at the top of the list for most watched shows in the world. Joining them are CBS' "The Bold and the Beautiful" and NBC's "Days of our Lives," two soaps aired in the daytime in America but in primetime elsewhere.

"The Young and the Restless" has cast "Home and Away" alum <strong>Lachlan Buchanan</strong> in the contract role of Kyle Jenkins, the son of Jack Abbott (<strong>Peter Bergman</strong>) and Diane Jenkins (last played by "General Hospital's" <strong>Maura West</strong>). The actor will report to work at the CBS Television City studio, where "Y&R" is filmed, beginning Tuesday, January 27. His first airdate is set for <strong> Wednesday, February 25</strong>.

Attention fans of CBS Daytime's "The Bold and the Beautiful," "The Young and the Restless," "Let's Make a Deal," "The Talk," and "The Price is Right": If you live in the New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Miami, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or the Sacramento television markets, you currently have no access to CBS programming if you subscribe to Dish Network. You are also missing out on The CW's programming if you live in Atlanta, Detroit, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Sacramento, San Francisco and Seattle. This is the result of a carriage dispute between CBS Corp. -- owner of broadcaster CBS and co-owner of The CW -- and Dish Network that was set to expire on Thursday, December 4. The two sides agreed to extend talks on a new carriage contract beyond the 4:00 PM, PT deadline yesterday. The satellite provider eventually dropped the stations from its programming lineup earlier today when the talks fell through. Also affected by the dispute are three independent stations in Dallas, Los Angeles and New York and two MyNetworkTV affiliates in Boston and Miami.

Get ready to see “General Hospital’s” <strong>Parry Shen</strong> (Brad Cooper) in a whole new light: The actor is headed to CBS’ “NCIS: Los Angeles!”

The 2013-2014 television season ending CBS Fan Awards are currently underway and CBS' "The Young and the Restless" is nominated in the category of Best Chemistry for Sharon and Nicholas Newman (Sharon Case and Joshua Morrow). The two are competing against Deeks and Kensi of "NCIS: Los Angeles," the cast of "Criminal Minds" (which includes former "Y&R" star Shemar Moore; ex-Malcolm Winters), Sheldon and Amy of "The Big Bang Theory" and Ted and The Mother of "How I Met Your Mother." "Big Bang Theory's" Sheldon and Amy are currently in the lead, so if you want to see Sharon and Nicholas' chemistry rewarded, make sure to vote.

It was one year ago this month when word broke that actress Camryn Grimes would be returning to CBS' "The Young and the Restless" after previously portraying the beloved Cassie Newman on the soap from 1997-2005, when the character was killed off following a horrific car accident, and on a less frequent basis as the ghost of Cassie from that point through and up to 2010.
