Show Summary

The Young and the Restless revolves around the rivalries, romances, hopes and fears of the residents of the fictional Midwestern metropolis, Genoa City. The lives and loves of a wide variety of characters mingle through the generations, dominated by the Newman, Abbott and Winters families. When the show premiered in 1973, it revolutionized the daytime drama. It continues to set the standard with strong characters, socially conscious storylines, romance and sensuality. The Young and the Restless premiered on March 26, 1973, and was originally a 30 minute show. It was not until January 1980 that the show had become a one hour show like it is today. The show has ran for years at 12:30 PM on the east coast, and at 11:00 AM on the west coast. Over the years, many things have happened, and there have been many twisted story lines, many stolen husbands, and many people dead. It has also featured character cross-overs with another CBS soap, The Bold and the Beautiful. These include the psychotic Sheila Carter, who began on The Young and the Restless and shown her more psychotic side on The Bold and the Beautiful. The same goes for Lauren Fenmore, who also can be seen on The Bold and the Beautiful occasionally. The Young and the Restless is not like other soaps which convey a surreal way of life. This show, however, is based on the lives of people in a small town called Genoa City, Wisconsin, where the money is plentiful and so are the women. Many times, we wish that we could live in that small, mid-western town, just to see how life would really be like. Sometimes, we put our own problems aside and worry about what will happen next on the show. However, we're very fortunate not to have a world like they do on any soap! The theme song was written by Barry DeVorzon and Perry Botkin, and originally entitled Cotton's Theme from the film Bless the Beasts, but later became known as Nadia's Theme.

    Worst story line ever. Boring couples, boring plots, just down right boring. What happened to Chelsea and Adam?!? Let that secret come out already or are we gonna have to wait a year for that too? This Billy sucks. Bring back Billy Miller. How about Hillary and Devon? Let's get them back together. Who cares about Stitch and Victoria? Now Stitch is with Abby?!? Even worst of a story line. It's like watching a father and daughter. Gross. Should've at least put him with Ashley. Joe needs to hang himself with his begging self. From my understanding, women love confidence. This jerk has none. Kill him off already. I was actually glad he fell off that balcony. Let Dylan and Avery get married. Then start some scandal that way. And have you forgotten about the killer? When is that going to come out? Does the GCPD know how to solve anything besides questioning anyone? So far 4 days of Yack/Jack? Who cares? It's not even believable and extremely boring.moreless

  • This is too far fetched

    The writers have really gone over board with this story. The only way they can make this story work , is some how Victor was able to clone Jack and all his body parts. Can't wait to see if this new Jack knows Adam
