The Young And The Restless (commonly abbreviated to Y&R) is an American soap opera that takes place in Genoa City (named after a vacation spot that series creators William J. Bell and Lee Phillip Bell visited annually). It first debuted on the CBS television network on March 26, 1973, replacing Where the Heart Is and Love Is A Many Splendored Thing. Y&R has aired over 8,500 episodes.
Since late 1988, the show has been the highest-rated serial in the daytime ratings. The Young and the Restless has seen the ratings decline steadily since it first ranked #1. From 1988 to 2006, the show lost a significant share of its audience, from eight million viewers to about six million. It should also be noted that all US Daytime soaps have seen a similar decline in ratings.
On April 24, 2006, same-day episodes of Y&R began running on SOAPnet, the 24-hour cable network dedicated to soaps. This makes Y&R the first CBS soap to broadcast on the network.
The Young And The Restless' healthy ratings are often attributed in part to the tight-knit writing and production staff. For the most part, the writers and producers of the show have stayed unchanged since the 1980s, with the only high-profile departure being William J. Bell himself, who retired from writing the program in 1998 after 25 years. (Bell stayed closely involved with the series, serving as executive producer and story consultant until 2005 or shortly before that time. Bell was credited as senior-executive producer until his death in 2005. )
The show was groundbreaking for daytime serials in its lush production values. When the show first aired, its glamourous sets, wardrobe and hairstyles were a huge contrast to existing soap operas, which often set the action in a simple living room or kitchen set, where characters would discuss their world over a cup of coffee.
The Young and the Restless was the first and so far the only daytime soap opera to be broadcast in high-definition. Moving to HDTV broadcasts was a natural progression for the show, known for its visual nature.
The writing staff features primarily long-term, fan favorite characters. These characters, in many cases, have been played by the same actor since their introduction, allowing viewers to invest not only in the characters but actors, as well. Even actors that took over long term roles from their original portrayers have managed to carve their own niche in the roles (notably Melody Thomas Scott, Jess Walton, Peter Bergman, and Judith Chapman).
After the show's initial success with the Brooks and Foster families in the 1970s and 1980s, Bell made a successful segue and introduced the Abbotts as a new core family, as well as bringing Victor Newman to the forefront. The show found a new niche in the stories surrounding the Newman Enterprises and Jabot Cosmetics conglomerates, and focused on the problems in the relationships stemming from the business deals and love lives of its principal members. The show was twice nominated for a Writers Guild of America Award for best written daytime serial and won it twice, in 2003 and 2006.
In late February 2006, Lynn Marie Latham was named the show's head writer, while Kay Alden and John F. Smith served as co-head writers. In late August 2006, Latham was announced as the new Executive Producer (in addition to her writing role) by CBS Daytime Vice President Barbara Bloom. More behind-the-scenes shakeups continued into September 2006 when Latham fired former head writer John F. Smith from his role as co-head writer. Kathryn Foster, a long time producer and occasional director since the 1980s, resigned in October 2006.
Alden either quit or was fired by Latham and is now suspected to be ghost writing on As The World Turns. Former Latham colleague Josh Griffith, the show's former creative consultant, was named its new co-executive producer shortly after the departure of Smith.
The show had been known in the industry for its close-knit writing team that rarely changed; however, with Latham's ascension to head, some writers that had been with the show since the 1980sâ??Jim Houghton, Chris Abbott, and Marc Hertz were fired. New writers/directors were hired or returned: Andrew Lee, Scott Hamner, Lynsey DuFour, Bernard Lechowick, James Stanley, Tom Casiello, Paula Cwikly, and Josh Griffith.
The Young And The Restless stood out from other soaps on the air for its darkness. Soap operas at the time tended to be comparatively brightly-lit in tone. Y&R lighted primarily the actors, and not the background settings, so as to focus the attention of the viewer on the emotions of the actors. In its early years, The Young and the Restless centered upon the Foster and Brooks families. William and Elizabeth Foster had three children: Snapper, Greg, and Jill. Stuart and Jennifer Brooks had four daughters: Leslie, Chris, Peggy, and Lauralee (nicknamed Lorie and played by Jaime Lyn Bauer; her father would turn out to be Elizabeth Foster's brother, Bruce Henderson). At the core of the show was a class struggle: the Brooks family was rich while the Fosters were poor. The young cast was derided by some soap fans, who mocked the show by calling it "The Young and the Chestless". Leslie and Lorie fought over first Brad Eliot and then Lance Prentiss, a triangle stretched into four when Lance's sea captain brother Lucas arrived.
One of Y&R's first and longest-lasting storylines involved the rivalry between Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) and Jill Foster (Jess Walton). In 1973 Jill (then played by Brenda Dickson) went to work as Kay's manicurist & paid companion to help her struggling family pay the bills. Kay was a boozy matron trapped in a loveless marriage to Phillip Chancellor (Donnelly Rhodes). Jill and Phillip fell in love but when Phillip was returning from obtaining a divorce in the Dominican Republic, Katherine picked him up at the airport, and in an attempt to kill both Phillip and herself, drove the car off a cliff. On his deathbed, he married Jill and bequeathed her and their child Phillip III his fortune, but Kay successfully contested his decision. An embittered Jill became a vixen and the two ladies fought over beautician Derek Thurston. Jill then married tycoon John Abbott (Jerry Douglas) while Kay went through groundbreaking stories about alcoholism and facelifts. Years later Jill, after her two marriages to John were over and her son Phillip was dead from a car crash, went back to court and the judge declared she owned half of the Chancellor mansion. Jill and Kay fought over the new arrangement as well as Jill's son Billy dating Kay's granddaughter Mackenzie. In 2003 Jill discovered that Katherine was her birth mother, and told Billy and Mac moments before they consummated their relationship. In 2004 Jill's birth father Arthur Hendricks (David Hedison) briefly visited, and mother and daughter fought over him while Kay again battled her drinking problem.
Although Lorie Brooks was initially little more than the bad girl who tormented pure sister Leslie, she became a lead in her own right as she battled her sister over custody of Leslie's son Brooks, and battled her psychotic mother-in-law Vanessa (who even killed herself just to frame Lorie for the crime). Lorie acted and reacted based on her neuroses and was as much a child as a woman, naughty as well as sympathetic, a template for many future Y&R female leads.
Most of the Brooks and Foster families had been recast again and again by the early 1980s, and when Bell decided to expand Y&R to an hour in 1980, many lead actors said they could not sustain themselves on an hour show. Bell told himself he would wait for one more major departure before making big changes. When Jaime Lyn Bauer quit in 1982 due to exhaustion, Bell took the opportunity to write out all of the Brooks and Fosters, save Jill. Gradually, the focus shifted from the Brooks and Foster families to the Williams, Newman and Abbott families and around their respective companies, Newman Enterprises and Jabot Cosmetics. Most members of the Williams family have been phased out, but the other two families remain. Y&R is one of the few shows in the history of daytime to eliminate their original core families and benefit from the result.
Around the same time Bell phased out the originals, Eric Braeden arrived as the sinister tycoon Victor Newman who was so menacing to his wife Julia (Meg Bennett) that he locked her boyfriend Michael Scott in a bomb shelter constructed in the basement and forced him to watch Victor and Julia's bedroom via closed-circuit camera. Bell saw something in Braeden's performance and since the show had few strong male characters, elevated him to star status. Soon after, Victor went to a strip club and met brash yet innocent Nikki Reed. Played by Erica Hope, Nikki had gone through a number of second-tier stories (killing her rapist dad, getting a sexually transmitted disease from Paul Williams, joining a cult) but as played by Melody Thomas Scott was a naughty anti-heroine in the Lorie Brooks mold. She married Victor in a lavish 1984 wedding and their love-hate relationship suffered many divorces, affairs and remarriages involving everyone from Abbotts to blind Kansas farm women to gynecologists. After over a decade apart, they reunited in 1998 and have basically been together since.
The Young and the Restless is also one of the few soaps to have successfully integrated a number of African American actors into its cast. In the mid-1980s Y&R created a storyline which revolved around a young black man being made up in whiteface to bring down a mafia kingpin, but the characters were written out within a few years. In 1989, Generations earned critical acclaim for casting an entire African American family from the show's inception. Established hits like The Young and the Restless were criticized as the show had a low number of minorities. In the early 1990s, the introduction of the Barber sisters, Olivia (Tonya Lee Williams) and Drucilla (Victoria Rowell) proved to be very successful and they interacted fairly well with the established characters when given the dialogue and the situations to do so. Olivia and Drucilla were tied to one of the two black characters on the show at the time as they were the nieces of the Abbott maid, Mamie Johnson, played by Marguerite Ray, then Veronica Redd. Nathan, the other black character on the show before 1990, was married off to Olivia, before dying in a hit and run in 1996. Two more black characters, Neil Winters, played by former Generations alum Kristoff St. John and Malcolm (Shemar Moore), would be introduced in 1991 and 1994 respectively.
Critics of Y&R continued to deride the show even after its integration, noting that, most of the time, the core black characters largely interacted with themselves only. In the case of Winters siblings Neil and Malcolm, and Barber sisters Olivia and Drucilla, they were shown to usually just swap each other's partners when a "shake-up" was needed in the romantic scheme of the story. This led to a seemingly neverending love quadrangle between the four characters that gained the nickname "Four Square" from fans and critics alike. Later actions have proven that this choice was due to the supposition that it was ostensibly "too controversial" to have an interracial pairing. Indeed, a pairing in the late 1990s between Neil Winters and Victoria Newman was axed by CBS executives, who were rumored to have received many angry phone calls and letters by viewers in the South. In 2004, a love affair between web designer Phyllis Abbott (Michelle Stafford) and chemist Damon Porter (Keith Hamilton Cobb) was prominently featured, despite concerns that the interracial pairing would be scrapped just like the one that was written before. While the romance between Phyllis and Damon did eventually come to an end, the writers followed up by having Phyllis's son Daniel become involved with Drucilla and Malcolm's daughter Lily. Daniel and Lily married in 2006.
The show has been less successful with incorporating Asian American characters. In 1994 the Vietnamese Volien family was introduced to the show, consisting of Luan and her two children, Keemo and Mai. Luan married Jack Abbott (who was the father of her son Keemo), but was killed off in 1996 and her two children were written out soon afterward. Currently, the only Asian character in the cast is Ji Min Kim, played by Eric Steinberg.
Unlike other soaps in the 1980s or 1990s, Y&R avoided preachy social issues. When they did touch on such issues as abortion or the homeless crisis or AIDS, it was only as a plot device with a few facts and statistics thrown in for effect. For instance, when Ashley Abbott (Eileen Davidson) aborted Victor's child in the 1980s, any viewers or scholars who may have looked for a serious story on the pros and cons of abortion would have been disappointed. Ashley only aborted her baby because her lover Victor's wife, Nikki, was then terminally ill, and Ashley did not want to cause her pain. After learning of her abortion, Victor ripped her to shreds, causing a devastated Ashley to lose her mind and wind up in an insane asylum (in true soap fashion, she married her psychiatrist).
One social issue which was too hot for the Y&R audience of the mid-'70s was homosexuality. In the mid-'70s, lonely society matron Kay Chancellor befriended an overweight, unhappy housewife named Joann Curtis. Kay moved Joann into her home and helped her get a better self-image. Soon, Kay's son Brock wondered about all the time the ladies were spending together, as Kay planned a special vacation to Hawaii for herself and Joann. The ratings dropped and outraged fan letters poured in. Bell quickly dropped the relationship, wrote out Joann, and the show stabilized.
A relatively controversial fixture on the show for several decades was Bell's daughter, Lauralee. Lauralee debuted in 1983 in a bit part as photographer Joe Blair's teenage cousin Christine (aka Cricket). As Lauralee grew up, Christine became more and more prominent, to the point where 1988 storylines had 4 different men madly in love with her. Longtime fan favorite Terry Lester (ex-Jack Abbott) left the show in 1989 and blamed her partly, claiming that the excessive airtime given to Cricket drowned out the other performers. Christine married rock star Danny (Michael Damian) then private investigator Paul Williams (Doug Davidson), became an attorney and asked people to refer to her as "Chris", but remained a somewhat saccharine central heroine. At one point in 1996 the show hinted at a romance between Christine and the much older Victor Newmanâ??negative viewer reaction killed the story. Later Christine became involved with Michael Baldwin (Christian LeBlanc), who had stalked her years earlier. This led to a controversial storyline where Paul, angry at his ex-wife's new love, raped Christine. Many fans could not believe heroic Paul would ever do such a thing, and were upset by scenes which said that the two had simply had "rough sex" that Christine could not admit she wanted. Christine and Paul reunited but eventually split for good. By 2003 or so, Lauralee Bell's marriage and children, as well as a successful clothing store, diminished her onscreen airtime and paved the way for other characters. In early 2005 she announced her move from contract to recurring status.
While heavy recasting is considered to have doomed some series such as Ryan's Hope and Love is a Many Splendored Thing, many would agree that Y&R's casting choices were some of the best in the genre. Most important characters were played by the same actor for decades; if they left the show, the characters left with them. When leads were recast, the replacements were often popular and remade the character in their own image, such as Peter Bergman's Jack Abbott, Susan Walters' Diane Jenkins or Jess Walton's Jill Foster Abbott.
When Y&R did make the occasional casting blunder, such as the brief 1997 replacement for Heather Tom's Victoria Newman, Sarah Aldrich, the mistake was quickly rectified when Tom returned to the show (when Tom left the show again in 2003, the show cast former All My Children star Amelia Heinle to play Victoria). The recast of Mackenzie Browning from Ashley Bashioum to Rachel Kimsey, met a so-so reception from fans, yet ratings stayed flat. Kimsey was recently released from her contract and the role will not be recast in the near future. In 2004, Joan Van Ark joined the cast as Gloria Fisher, Michael Baldwin's hardscrabble mother, remaining until early 2005. She was replaced by Judith Chapman, and fans quickly accepted Chapman in the role of her more high profile predecessor. The role of Colleen Carlton, who had been played by Lyndsy Fonseca for several years (and was enrolled in a popular teenage romance with heartthrob J.T. Hellstrom, played by Thad Luckinbill) was recast in 2006 with Adrianne Leon (ex-Brook Lyn, General Hospital); this recast also generated mixed reviews.
The recasting of Lily Winters Romalotti has been possibly Y&R's most controversial one yet. In February 2006, Davetta Sherwood took over the role from the recently-departed Christel Khalil. Sherwood soon made the role her own and gave Lily a feisty new edge. Sherwood's Lily was an instant hit with viewers and Y&R's cast and crew seemed very impressed with Sherwood's work, therefore it was a massive shock to viewers when later in the year, it was announced that Sherwood had been let go in favor of bringing back her predecessor, Khalil.
Along with every other daytime soap, Y&R has suffered audience erosion, with particularly noticeable losses from 2000 to the present day. The show, in response to the bleeding, took some power away from longtime backstage brass like Edward J. Scott and Kay Alden, instead relying on head writer John F. Smith and later (in 2006) head writer/executive producer Lynn Marie Latham. Another highly publicized move was the rehiring of Shemar Moore (Malcolm Winters) for a limited run. Moore was extremely popular with African-American viewers, and the show lost a healthy chunk of that demographic upon his 2002 departure. Although fans were happy to see him return, Malcolm's new storyline garnered mixed reviews at best, and the ratings barely nudged. In another high-profile storyline, Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman's (Sharon Case) teenaged daughter Cassie (Camryn Grimes), was killed off. In spite of rave reviews from the soap press, the ratings remained consistent. In August 2006, the show killed off 25-year veteran Jerry Douglas (who had played patriarch John Abbott). These episodes nudged Y&R to some of its highest ratings in some time.
Since July 2006, a new controversial storyline involving Brad Carlton (Don Diamont) and his true identity as George Kaplan has been playing out. Fans are reported to have mixed emotions over the introduction of Nazis to the storyline.
In late 2006, the show began to reintroduce infamous story plots to draw some devoted fans. The infamous Jack vs. Victor war began to surface in November 2006, with Jack secretly manipulating Victor's new company, NVP, and Victor wanting revenge. Also, the infamous story line of Kay vs. Jill started once again, which will be a huge storyline in 2007. With the death of John Abbott in 2006, the "estate inheritance" storyline, made famous by Kay and Jill in the 1990s will occur with Gloria Fisher Abbott and John's children. With Lauren Fenmore Baldwin and Michael Baldwin's baby, hints of the infamous Sheila vs. Lauren war have also been seen. Reports of Heather Tom returning to her role of Victoria Newman Carlton have began circulating since August 2006.
The theme song, Nadia's Theme, is probably the best-known theme song in daytime television, and has become iconic; save for a three-year stint in the early 2000s, the melody has remained unchanged. The melody, written by Barry De Vorzon and Perry Botkin, Jr., originated as a piece of incidental music for the 1971 theatrical film Bless the Beasts and the Children called Cotton's Dream. Botkin later adapted this piece of music as the theme to The Young and the Restless. It would later be used as accompanying music during gymnast Nadia Comaneci's floor exercises at the 1976 Summer Olympics, and given the alternate title Nadia's Theme.
It was sampled in Mary J. Blige's song No More Drama. In the tune, Blige's persona describes herself as "young and restless".
The opening title sequence has also become well-known. For many years, since the show's debut, the opening showcased the characters, drawn by an artist, on a white background. Starting in 1984, the sequence ended with an interlocking Y and R painted on the white canvas in a sweeping brush motion. The logo (and in the earlier years, the drawings) were done by artist Sandy Dvore. The drawings were replaced with live-action shots of the characters in formal or semi-formal wear, still on a white background, in 1988.
Beginning in 1999, in an unprecedented move for a main title sequence of a daytime soap opera, the names of the principal cast members (for that day's particular episode) were mentioned (whereas previously the main title only showed the cast members' faces). For the most part, the mentality of the soap opera producers in general is to keep a certain image of a soap opera character or actor constant in order to keep good publicity, and thus the real names of the actors, shown next to their pictures, were long discouraged, as it interfered with the "escapist" tone of the genre. This did not deter the show's producers and in early 2003 the opening credits were given a complete makeover, now featuring black-and-white footage from the series with the actors' names in lower case in red at either the top or bottom of the screen. In 2004, Y&R's sister show The Bold and the Beautiful began airing the performers' names on the opening credits, the only soap besides Y&R to do so.
In 2003, when the show introduced the current sequence, execs stated that the new format meant it would be quick and easy to update the cast as it changed. However, despite several cast changes, the opening credits have only been updated twice (last updated in 2004) in three years. In June 2006, for the first time in well over two years, Y&R updated the opening credits.

As of 2006, Y&R has managed 900 consecutive weeks in the #1 spot and 18 consecutive years.
When introduced during the 1972â??73 season, the show was at the bottom of the ratings, but rose rapidly: 9th by 1974â??75 and 3rd by 1975â??76. It remained a strong and increasingly important part of CBS daytime's lineup and by 1988-1989 had dethroned long-time leader General Hospital as the #1 rated soap, a position it has held ever since.
In the years since 1988, daytime soaps have seen a massive erosion in viewership, which has been felt more acutely by soaps since 1995 and even more since 2001. (See: Daytime TV ratings)
