Some of my fondest holiday memories are of sitting around watching my suds with my grandparents, when I was a kid. The Hortons trimming their tree on Days of Our Lives and the Abbotts getting together for some of Mamie's (Veronica Redd) sticky buns on The Young and the Restless, were as much a part of my family's holiday traditions, as the hanging of our own tree and exchanging gifts.
While it's been a rocky year in Genoa City, both in front of and behind the camera, here's hoping for a spectacular New Year for daytime's top-rated drama. Watch the Y&R cast wish their viewers Happy Holidays after the jump!
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!
Oh this is gonna be good! CBS Daytime has revealed a red-hot promo for Thorsten Kaye's upcoming debut as Ridge Forrester on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Who better than Betty White to help the women of CBS Daytime's The Talk get ready for the holidays? The adorably-naughty nonagenarian showed up at the studio, being pulled in Santa's sleigh by half-naked elfin hunks. She also gave an update on pal Valerie Harper's courageous battle with brain cancer. Watch the clips after the jump!
CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless has launched many an A-list career. From Tom Selleck and Eva Longoria, to Shemar Moore and Paul Walker, the latter of whom died this weekend following a car crash in Southern California,Y&R boasts quite a stable of alums who made their mark in Hollywood.
As the entertainment industry mourns the Varsity Blues and The Fast and the Furious star—who appeared on Y&R in 1992 as Brandon Collins—the soap's publicist tweeted the following statement about the actor's passing:
