To celebrate the 10,000th episode of THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, $10,000 dollars will be up for grabs on THE TALK.  Two lucky Y&R super-fans from THE TALK live studio audience will have the chance to win $5000.00 each.

THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS has been the #1-rated daytime drama for more than 23 years.  The show is broadcast weekdays (12:30-1:30 PM, ET; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, PT) on the CBS Television Network and is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company, in association with Sony Pictures Television.

CBS’s daytime talk show features a panel of well-known news and entertainment personalities who examine current events, pop culture, contemporary issues, family, celebrity and the trending topics of the day. The daily one-hour series is co-hosted by Julie Chen, Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and Aisha Tyler. The hosts swap stories, challenge each other on issues and engage the studio audience and viewers at home about events in the headlines and their own homes. Show segments include guest interviews with entertainers and newsmakers, musical performances, how-to demos and appearances from extraordinary people with stories that engage and inform. The show was developed by Gilbert, who also serves as executive producer.

CBS Daytime has been #1 in the daypart for 26 consecutive years, featuring a lineup that is a balance of dramas, game shows and talk. In addition to THE TALK, the Network’s daytime line-up includes the #1 daytime drama THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, as well as THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, television’s longest-running game show THE PRICE IS RIGHT, and LET’S MAKE A DEAL.

    Congrats to Y&R, glad to still see soaps on the air and hitting landmark milestones that no other television shows will likely never see again.

  • TimsDale4ever

    I find it odd that many of these talk shows are featuring soap characters and things about the soaps when they actually took the place of many of these soaps.

  • Robert

    Congrats Y and R.

  • Lisa

    Congrats on this Milestone! Have been watching Y&R since I was a teenager in the late 70’s!!!

  • Pat

    Even though CBS was premature in canceling ATWT, they by far have the best and most diverse daytime line up. Y and R really is the cornerstone of that. I hope that TPTB take note. Congrats to the show! I’ve been watching since the 70’s. Don’t let the new EP of the show mess it up!
