78 March 26th, 2018 Y&R Celebrates Its 45th Anniversary Today! EP Mal Young Teases: “We’ve Got Major Storylines Happening And Major Peaks Of What We Have Been Building Up To For Months”

A big congratulations are in order to The Young and the Restless on this Monday, March 26th. For 45 years ago, CBS broadcast the first episode of this juggernaut daytime drama hit series that since 1989 has been the number-one rated soap of them all!

This week, Y&R has plenty in store for fans of the residents of Genoa City with major storyline bombshells and revelations planned after last Friday’s multi-story cliffhanger.

In a videotaped message posted on social media Sunday, Y&R executive producer, Mal Young shared: “This is a huge moment and honor for me, personally. To have the responsibility of overseeing the celebrations for the 45th anniversary of Y&R.  The anniversary is on a Monday, but actually it’s all about these five episodes and events that are going to unfold across the five episodes that are going to change lives forever.

We’ve got major storylines happening and major peaks of what we have been building up to for months.  So it was important that some of those people came from like Mac (Kelly Kruger) who would actually play into current storylines.

It’s been like a real reunion this week, while we’ve been filming everything.  It’s been a joy for everyone, simply meeting each other, after not seeing each other for years. The atmosphere had been exciting an emotional, and I think we’ve got something truly exciting and special for the fans.”

So get ready for the celebration of Y&R 45! It all kicks-off today! Share your congratulations to the cast, crew, behind the scenes personnel on this achievement, and a special shout out to you, the fans, that have continued to enjoy and have been invested in the show for over 4-plus decades.  Comment below!

    Yes, Nikki….and get rid of JT….used to looove this character. Now, he has been ruined….a murderer??
    What baffles me is that considering there was a supposed attempt on Victor’s life, and the fact that he is a billionaire with a score—-a plethora of enemies, should there not have been a guard outside his door? What about cameras?
    Oh, I forgot….Jack’s in jail….please, Paul, as police chief, is as efficiently inefficient as Jordan on GH.

    I agree my friend and why did J.T. turn into the creep he is now? We’ve seen him take pills! He says he takes the pills for his heart condition since the day he was hit with lightning. I personally don’t think he ever really got over Colleen. Paul is a terrible chief police detective. He made a deal with J.T. to give him his old job back if he got the goods on Victor. I know Victor set him up but I blame Paul for letting J.T. down. That was when he started to spiral out of control. Gosh he even say to Paul, “so you used me too”! And on another topic they can send Kyle back to New York.

    Celia replied

    I don’t know why TPTB decided to write JT as a fiend. You have a point about Coleen. I guess he struggled with his demons silently….and, he may have turned to tranquilizers which progressed to opioids.
    I cannot believe JT would turn from good to bad ‘naturally’…. there must have been a catalyst to accelerate this behavior.
    As I said so many times, my friend, Cricket wears the pants and police-chief-hat, as it were. Paul has not made one sound decision yet.
    And, yes…we are on the same page, where Kyle is concerned. Do not like the actor ….this is not Kyle….TPTB have completely transformed Kyle, as they did Phyllis and Billy….. I guess when they bring new actors, they also bring in new personalities, LOL.
    ‘Nite, Nikki….

    I’m not feeling it if it turns out Jack is not an Abbott. Maybe Eric Forrester is his father.

    hi Mo..
    Jack Abbott is a cornerstone of Y&R as is Victor..
    That will never change..

    There is no Y&R worth much of anything without the two powers; Victor and Jack.

    Jack is John’s son… that is Y&R ..

    imo- it will be a story to have Jack feel what Ashley felt/feels knowing she’s not an Abbott.
    Most likely the story will be the bringing together of Jack and Ashley.

    Jack Abbott and Victor Newman will always be.

    It will be a very good story!!! The journey of Jack finding himself ..
    Perhaps another visit from John..

    i’m watching just this weeks epi : for the 45th. oh wow… like I needed convincing in Marla Adams… as Dina.

    ” I don’t want any DAMN tea, I want to leave right now, you are so impertinent, you should be fired, johns going to know about this”

    ALL the trappings that scare the bejeezus out of any one.

    this rocks to the core… you can’t even grasp at any thing. the finality

    kudos, salute… on the excellence of Marla Adams. how does it get any better

    Patrick replied

    ie: your post… which explains … why – Dina would “make-up” ANOTHER scenario … with another of her children… that being Jack.

    that is tantamount to may as well blow this show up. as @suOOOO said.. you can’t just have two gladiators… without the other. Jack ABBOTT and Victor NEWMAN.

    since she grappled and fought for a lifetime.. Ashley parentage.

    anyway… theres no way around this… as was said @GH Mike story. just hearing the word , scares . for drama sake… Y&R and GH are to be lauded for SHARING what is more common than any one wants

    Celia replied

    Good one, Scott….never looked at it that way. The mind is a force with which to reckon…

    I don’t think this latest “revelation” will lead anywhere. I think Dina is confusing her memories (hopefully).

    Yes, dmr….too drastic of a change for Jack not to be a blood Abbot. It would be more of a revolution than a revelation.

    mal young wake up dont make this just an anniversary visit ,make it a permanent stay and bring back some nostalgia and hystory to this show,,,ive never understood writers not getting it,,no one loves more then to sit with friends and reminice about the good ole days,,its no different in genoa city,,,it doesnt take a genious writers so next time you are trying to think up a new character for the show just look into the rich hystories of the past,,,dont tell us old characters have know place in the present stories,,,this lil come back just proved that wrong..

    Right, T? I want to climb the walls with GH….but, Billy is making a comeback without Jason’s shadow on his back….he’s onto his own.
    Nowm if Jason ( whom I do like) could stop shadowing Sonny, all would be well in the ‘fairland’ ( forgive the play-on-word) of GH.
    And @Harry? Agreed about S T E L L A!!!!!! We need a Marlon Brando type standing outside her window….STELLAAAA….STELLAAAA….

    Celia replied

    No, SuzieQ…not the first time. That’s impossible, LOL.
    How long have you been watching Y&R? I LOVE THIS SHOW, come hell or high water!!
    Perhaps if GH got rid of Sonny, Carly, Michael, Sam, Aunt Stella ( suddenly she has a degree in Social Senior Services? For someone who ‘deals’ with human sense and sensibility and emotions, she is presented as a harsh hussy), Dr. Borscht?, and Bobbi, the show would be more palatable…..But you like Sonny, yes?

    Reply

    Soaphound replied

    I don’t get it, Celia. While others languish, Sonny and Carly (and her clomping size 19s) each now have a big storyline AGAIN. if I have to watch her salivating over Drew and Sam’s breakup, I may SERIOUSLY consider making a Carly voodoo doll (just a too-tight mini-dress, some straw for hair, and regular adult shoes 10 sizes too big oughta do it), then we’ll see who’s cackling away!

    Shay replied

    Well, that would be a good start, CeeCeeGirl! Especially the supercilious Aunt Stella and creepy Dr. Bensch, who is looking to be the lecher we believed him to be from the very beginning. The problem with GH is that there are so many unpalatable characters that getting rid of just one or two will not be sufficent to the purpose of getting this soap back on track. It really does require deep culling of the herd…..

    jaybird369 replied

    Celia…about Aunt Stella…girl, as always, you are SO RIGHT ON!!!!! GH suddenly making Stella a social worker…I cannot help but LMAO on that one!!!!! This makes me like Aunt Stella EVEN LESS!!!!! Trips to a local car wash last A LOT LONGER than that…lol.

    Oh, yeah…..I didn’t know there was a size 19…..laughing as I write. My husband is size 12-13( and I thought that was huge)….I, a mere 5-51/2…..
    Clomp, clomp, clomp. Your exaggeration hits the spot.
    I do not know why this couple is soooo venerated…..why not, eh? They’re soooo supreme, afterall…..

    Shay replied

    And that’s only considering the remarks that actually made it online, CeeCeeGirl! Can you just imagine how hysterically funny much of the material deemed “inappropriate to post” must be??? I know many of my best comments have vanished into oblivion…Lol. And speaking of, what did you make of yesterday’s GH episode? I was none too impressed with the overall product, and especially some of the characters that were chosen to be favored with highlights…(or lowlights, as it were….) The fact that some of the most iconic and pivotal legacy players ever to hit Port Charles were overlooked for the lackluster likes of Lucy Coe and of course, Alexis, really does beggar belief! Figures that the latter‘s flashback would feature her primed and ready whilst posing on a bed with her cleavage exposed, does it not???? And the former’s “look at me, me, me” exhibitionist antics at umpteen Nurses’ Balls also left me shaking my head…it’s as if the legendary Laura Webber Spencer, Frisco Jones, Robert Scorpio, Duke Lavery and AJ Quartermaine never existed, yet there were guests present at this sorry soiree who deeply loved and cherished each of the aforementioned. But hey, as long as Sonny and Carly were feted once again…

    Harry replied

    My clodhopper remark in reaction to Soaphound’s hilarious comment about Carly’s big and ungainly shoes, didn’t make the cut.
    I think Clodhopper might be offensive to the Dutch? If so, I offer my humble apologies to Clodhoppers every where. Really, I meant no harm.

    @Shay.
    Hello, Shaybelle,
    I’m baa-ack…. …Yes, we did figure Dr. Bensch out, did we not?
    I always have this urge to call him Borscht. He is definitely a perv; and, good for Kiki on calling him out.
    Did you notice how well he was able to navigate himself out of the Black Sea, as it were? He is a pro!! He twisted the ‘offense’ sooo skillfully to make Kiki the culprit. She sent him signals? Yucky-doodle-do-do.

    He is smug and arrogant, confident and deceiving– overbearing to the 10th degree. I suppose since Victor gets a mouthful from Nick, Jack ought to get the same from his own son.

I’m thrilled that we are sympatico on the GH excess Sonny et al. situation, which is really getting a mulling over in the other thread. I just wish the show would change course… Why, dear Friend, won’t they listen to us?!?!

    BTW: when I first started posting here, jaybird369, jimh, Harry, and you were the first ones who reached out to me (and accepted my ramblings), and I will always remember and appreciate that…

    Take care. :)

    Celia replied

    @Ron.
    You see it, Ron….you see what I see…..Jack is not one of my favorite characters. I do not like him, at all. His son seems to be no different….He is as much of a ‘father-backstabber’ as Kyle….Jack slept with his father’s wife. He was no child; he knew exactly what he was doing.
    Karma is a B. …Not the same situation, but betrayal is betrayal no matter the circumstance…..one is not greater than the other, nor does it disclaim it.
    Speaking of George Kennedy, I enjoy BUZZR…..game shows galore. Love the 70′s and 80′s MATCH GAME, and George was sort of a regular…..great sense of humor.

  14. Barbara from Atlanta says:

    I’m LOATHING the notion that Jack may not be John’s son. If the plot plays out in that direction, I think it was a TERRIBLE idea.

    A decade ago, the writers RUINED Jill when they tinkered with her lineage: First, writing her as Kay’s daughter and then revisiting the sad tale to make her Lauren’s sister. It made absolutely no sense. Based on their interactions for over 20 years, there was no way that anyone would believe that Liz Foster was not Jill’s mother. They further insulted us with the idea that Jill was the daughter of Neil Fenmore (who was about the SAME AGE as Jill when he was on the show!!). Poor Jill and Kay never recovered from that disaster.

    You would think that Mal Young would have learned something from that: Leave the established history of the characters alone!!!! What exactly will the writers do with Jack if he is not John’s son? For the (nearly) 40 decades the character has been on the show, he has always been defined by his family —- his love for his father. Jack’s lineage IS the character. An Abbott-less Jack would just like Jill has been for the past decade — A character wounded by ill-advised plots who becomes a far less interesting character to watch.

    Personally, if I was going to “re-write” history and a character’s lineage, I would hit up Nikki. She must have barely known her mother and her father tried to sleep with her. I’ve always thought that it would be very believable that Nikki was the child Kay gave up for adoption —- They both were blonde and addiction issues. They also got along very well. (I even remember several times where Kay remarked to someone that “Nikki was like a daughter to her.” — which could effectively be used in flashbacks). Sister Casey could reveal to Nikki that she was adopted, explaining that this may be why daddy Nick Reid tried to sleep with Nikki but never with Casey as Nikki wasn’t his child. This would be a way to “revive” the importance of Kay to the show, cause major conflict between Nikki and Jill, and financially would put Nikki on par with Victor — causing problems between them as Nikki would not be dependent on him for $$$.

    I’ve had a LOT of issues with writing on Y&R for the past decade. Frankly, the quality of a LOT of it has been unacceptable. However, I’ve watched the show since the first day and have been reluctant to abandon it. That being said, if the writers actually follow through with this “Jack isn’t John’s son” business, I’m seriously thinking about ditching the show. I suffered through this treatment for Jill; I’m not foolish enough to watch it happen with Jack.

    Reply

    Barbara from Atlanta replied

    I hope that you are correct.

    However, someone could have said something similar about Jill and Kay —- “Y&R would never make Jill Kay’s daughter. Jill is clearly a Foster.” We saw first hand how that turned out.

    I would have more confidence in things if the show had not suffered from a “revolving door” of producers and writers over the past decade. With the exception of Sally Sussman and Kay Alden (I’m big fans of both), none of the others seemed to have bothered to learn the history of the show or (in the case of Maria Arena Bell) had no idea what they were doing.

    Veteran Y&R viewers have been put through the “mill” by the writers over the past decade. It has been brutal. While I certainly hope the current ones have enough sense to leave Jack as an Abbott, I can’t say with confidence that they will be that bright based on the sub-par plots (and unnecessary history re-writes) we’ve seen in the past decade.

    Kevin C replied

    Barbara from Atlanta, I am also a big fan of both Sally Sussman and Kay Alden and miss them so…I guess we will find out on Monday to see what Ashley and Abby saw with the results of Jack’s DNA…I pray that Jack is still an Abbott…and Barbara I agree 100% on what you are saying about all the writer’s and the rewritten history of our once classic show that William and Lee Philip Bell created and how I miss it…

    Ron replied

    Hi Barbara,

    A well-written and beautifully detailed look at the history of Y and R! I am in your camp: keep Jack Abbott a true Abbott. IT was a horrible mistake to make Jill Foster somebody other than Liz Foster’s daughter. Same would hold true here for Jack.

    On that note, as much as I hated seeing John Abbott killed off, I’d sure like to have Jack hallucinate again so we can see John now and then.

    I was really small when Y and R debuted, watching it with my mom (saw it the first time when I was home from school with a cold!) and, although I didn’t know what soaps were really all about, I knew I was captivated by the show’s ambiance.

    We have seen just about everything on this show, especially the highs and lows of storytelling. You wouldn’t be foolish if you watched what will happen to Jack. YOU ARE AN AUTHORITY on the true history of this show and your reminders will always keep things straight for the younger viewers so they know what really happened. Don’t give up on our beloved show!

    Harry replied

    Why oh, why does Y&R seem to hate Jack Abbott with the heat of a thousand suns? First, his sister holds a secret board meeting in order to vote Jack out as CEO of Jabot Cosmetics because he was too busy taking care of his dear mother who was suffering from Alzheimer’s at home. THEN, when Jack reacts in kind, everyone calls him horrible names for attacking his sister. NOW, Ashely and her obnoxious mini-me-who has-no-life-of-her-own-daughter decide to conduct a DNA test which might very well prove that Jack is not the son of John Abbott. On top of this, JT decides to beat the crap out of Victor and sends him hurling down the staircase putting him in a coma, and Jack takes the rap for it. If this could not get any worse, his son Kyle, for some inexplicable reason, seems to hate his dad and visits him in jail just to taunt him. Does Kyle, or anyone else for that matter, remember that Victor had Jack kidnapped, held captive and tortured by a mad woman, while his doppelganger raped Jack’s wife?
    And Kyle has turned into a total pretty boy jackass— over dressed in Forever 21 clothes and made over in Accessories by Angry Boys Inc for inexplicable reasons.

    I concur Barbara, and SUoo, you better be right on this. Jack has to be John Abbott’s biological son. To take that away from him would be a huge mistake.

    Didn’t like how Chelsea was written into a bad person by everyone, don’t like it that suddenly JT is an abuser and especially won’t like it if Jack is not an Abbott. Stop messing with well established characters and then turning them into something they haven’t been in all the years we watched.

    So right, Yvonne. And now they’re turning Kyle into a raving, spiteful, whining brat who looks like Jonny Lee Miller (without any of the charm) and dresses like a Ken doll. Oh, WHY couldn’t they find Blake Hood or offer Robert Scott Wilson a lot of cash?

    I record. Kind of afraid to look forward after reading these comments. Jack is John’s son. Some foundation is important and should not be compromised too often.

    Exactly how I feel, Tani. After decades, TPTB would have the audacity to change Y&R’s history? To what end? The only idea, which is weak on itself, would be if Jack were Victor’s . A soapy twist, indeed….and irony does bite.
    But, I doubt any of us would be happy removing Jack ( in the abstract) from the Abbott-hearth.
    Too ridiculous and mortifying to even contemplate.
