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.

  • How i got re-united with my wife back

    10
    I know you all out there have read and go through several comment about Ajayi Ololo, I am out here to affirm that those comments are not just comments, As they are sincere and truthful words written by those who have been there and found help in reunite with the one they hold dear to there heart, get there Job back after been sacked, Win lotteries, fixed broken marriages and got different kind of problems solved by this great man called Ajayi ololo. I can tell you this because i also asked him for help to cast a spell to fix my relationship with the only woman i have ever loved after been married to this woman that was carrying my baby. Normally am the kind of person that do not believe in love, As all i do is to work hard to be so rich. But when it came to been Mae it was different i fell for her in every way. Maybe i don't know what love is because i never felt it for any of one my ex lovers before i got married. Anyway the only detail i can give is that my heart literally beat fast when she was around, anytime she ran his finger through my chest. I always knew my past will always hurt not matter what i do but i never gave it too much thought because i never thought i will meet this kind of woman. At the time i meant her it was only a while before the relationship became serious because i bet she loved me also. We moved in together and our relationship was the best and i found peace with her. She was kind soft with me always i mean my life was a fairy for a moment. But then again my past life that was to be left in the closet got out. It almost ruined my life i almost lost the love of my life but Ajayi the spell caster help me restored that love that was always there. That is how i know every of this comment about this spell caster online is noting but the truth. As i am about to end it here, I know not everybody will believe this, As many will think that its just something on the internet but my heart knows that every of this word to this spell casting temple i am talking about that finally brought Happiness to my life after meeting with every single spell caster online that were frauds and liars apart from him that was opened minded about his work which was so true and real and brought Joy to my life. Am Droping Ajayi contact for those who believe and needs help to fix there life problems:moreless
  • Victor sucks

    10
    PLEASE GET RID OF VICTOR, apparently our post don't make an difference, victors still up to no damn good, everybody should stop watching and let the ratings drop and hope for changes to come.
  • Paragon Project may be our redemption

    5.0
    As once before, Y&R changed out a whole family. Maybe this Paragon Project is a way of bringing in a whole new family to remove Victor as the patriarch. I have watched too many years to continue to watch this downturn of evil in every character, every couple. Is there no one that has decent character? Why would we believe Jack is afraid of his actions while kidnapped and threatened? Why do we have to continue to watch decent roles turn into evil roles? And these couples that fight so hard to get together only to be torn apart instantly. Writers really need to put in more time, more thought for more interesting, creative, plausible plots. Please!!!moreless
