The Young and the Restless is letting everyone know they are the top dogs of daytime. The cast and crew of Y&R made a video to explain why they've been the No. 1 Stunners for the past 25 years. Watch the video after the jump!
Today our special letter is "E", boys and girls — "E" for "E-S-P-I-O-N-A-G-E". Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) has the unenviable task of trying to explain what corporate espionage is to his nitwit son today on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless.
Maybe when Diane Jenkins stole the sperm to make this kid, she forget to refrigerate it properly? Kyle (Hartley Sawyer), of course, just stands there going "Doh!" as his Daddy tries to teach him some sense.
At least Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey Bregman)'s kid is fairly sharp. Okay, so he does dope and ends up in the clink quite a bit. Other than that, Fenmore's (Max Ehrich) a regular Einstein compared with most of his peer group on this soap!
Speaking of Fen, Paul (Doug Davidson) simply will not stop investigating him for Carmine's murder (Marco Dapper). I guess the Chief of the Genoa City Police Department is still smarting over Lauren getting to keep the toaster in their divorce. Watch a sneak peek of today's Y&R after the jump!
Setside sources are telling me Hartley Sawyer is done as Kyle Abbott on The Young and the Restless. In March of 2013, Sawyer began playing Jack Abbott's (Peter Berman) son, when popular actor Blake Hood was dumped from the role. No word on if the soap plans to recast again.
I must have been a very good boy this year, because Soap Santa is finally granting my wish for more Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) scenes on The Young and the Restless! Ever since I was a wee lad, cutting my teeth on soap fandom, I've been fascinated by the raunchy dynamic shared by John Abbott's (Jerry Douglas) trophy wife and his randy son.
Whether in the boardroom or the bedroom, Jack and Jill have always been a delicious soap treat. Judging from the holiday promo below, we're about to get even more of them in our stockings!
Elsewhere in Genoa City, Victor (Eric Braeden) is giving Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) the "How Dare You?" treatment. What. A. Monster-in-Law. Watch this week's Y&R promo after the jump!
Was former Guiding Light superstar Cynthia Watros considered as a Phyllis recast on The Young and the Restless, before booking the role of grieving mom Kelly? The subject came up during a recent interview in the Dec. 16 issue of CBS Soaps In Depth. Here's what Watros said when the magazine asked about the rumors:
"That's a subject I can't really comment on, but it's interesting."
Noah Newman's (Robert Adamson) grandpa has despised Kyle Abbott's (Hartley Sawyer) dad for decades on The Young and the Restless — though Victor (Eric Braeden) always has had a hard on, I mean soft spot, for Kyle's ravishing Aunt Ashley (Eileen Davidson). On Monday's episode of Y&R, the strapping young lads are preparing to take their family feud into another generation!
Meanwhile, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) are scheming and fighting like wild cats again. Now if they would just jump one another's bones for old time's sake. Watch Monday's Y&R sneak peek after the jump!
