Celebrate Thanksgiving With B&B And Y&R!


On Wednesday, November 27, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS will celebrate Thanksgiving as Jack gathers his family to celebrate the holiday and is thrilled by a surprise guest. Meanwhile, the Newmans are still reeling over Nikki's shocking revelation. But over the actual holiday on Thursday and Friday, Y&R will air two repeat episodes honoring the memory of the late Jeanne Cooper (Katherine). First, on Thursday, November 28, they will run the classic episode where Jill and Katherine fight in the Chancellor attic. Then, on Friday, November 29, they will rerun the tribute episode from this past spring where cast members, family and friends gather to celebrate Cooper's life.

And over on THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL, Hope tries to gather all the Forresters, Logans, Spencers, Fullers and Waltons together to celebrate Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 27, but will everyone be able to put aside their differences for even one day? And on Thursday, November 28, a repeat of the episode where Hope and Liam tie the knot on location in Italy will air. No episode of B&B will air on Friday, November 29.

Enjoy the holiday!

Muldoon Hits The Road!


DAYS OF OUR LIVES' Patrick Muldoon (ex-Austin) is kicking off Christmas with his new romantic comedy, Holiday Road Trip, on ION TV. In it, a recently heartbroken, stressed out staffer (Ashley Scott) of a major pet supply company gets tasked with taking both the company's canine mascot and the owner's slouchy son (Muldoon) on a cross-country media tour. Will hilarity ensue? "Playing opposite Ashley made me very, very happy — she's gorgeous and really funny," Muldoon offers. "We fall in love along the way, but we have to overcome quite a bit as far as the personality differences between us. That's the fun of the movie."

Add in the fact that they're sharing a car with Auggie (the dog from The Artist) and are joined by an all-star cast that includes George Hamilton, Kip Pardue, Shelley Long, Susan Olsen and Wink Martindale, and viewers are guaranteed a good time. "It was awesome that George plays my father — the guy is so funny and classy," Muldoon says. "He brought five of his expensive suits to the set and when the one that wardrobe provided me didn't fit, he loaned me one of his. And it fit like butter! So in the movie, I'm wearing George Hamilton's suit." Much like the chemistry that Austin shared with DAYS' Sami, Muldoon says that the sparks in this movie are something to behold. Find out for yourself when Holiday Road Trip premieres Sunday, December 1, at 9 pm EST. And if you can't wait, catch a preview by clicking here!

B&B Follows Y&R To TVGN!


THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL fans have never had a way to watch encore episodes of the soap on TV... until now! Beginning on Monday, December 2, B&B will air an encore of the previous day's episode at 6:30 pm EST Monday through Friday on TVGN (TV Guide Network).

With SOAPnet leaving the airwaves, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS moved to TVGN this summer, and now B&B is following its lead. Although B&B will air at 6:30, before Y&R's 7:00 episode!

"I am looking forward to a successful partnership with TVGN," said Bradley Bell, Executive Producer and Head Writer of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL. "Our fans have asked us for an opportunity to watch a second run. I'm delighted that we will now be able to fulfill that desire with such an esteemed cable network."

In addition to the the encore episodes airing weekdays, TVGN will also air a marathon of all five of the prior week's episodes on Sundays, from 11:00 am EST to 1:30 pm EST, beginning on Sunday, December 8!

Miller Out At Y&R, Tom Back In!


Rumors have been circulating recently that Billy Miller (Billy) was embroiled in some contract negotiations with THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS that weren't going particularly well. So it comes as no surprise that the soap has confirmed that the actor will be leaving the role that he's played since 2008 and won him two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2010 and 2013.

But what is a surprise is that David Tom, who played Billy from 1999-2002, is returning to reclaim the role! "Please join me in welcoming Daytime Emmy winner David Tom back to Y&R and CBS Daytime as Billy Abbott's exciting storyline continues," head of CBS Daytime Angelica McDaniel tweeted. "I respect Billy Miller's decision to move on and wish him great success in his future endeavors."

Tom earned a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2000 for playing Billy on Y&R And luckily, his sister, Heather Tom, is now playing THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Katie, instead of her previous Y&R role of Victoria, Billy's wife!

According to TV Guide's Michael Logan, Miller will continue taping at Y&R until the end of the year, and will reportedly last air on Thursday, January 30. Tom will first air on Monday, February 3.

Confirmed: Rogers Returns To Y&R!


UPDATE: Angelica McDaniel, senior vice president of CBS Daytime, confirmed the news on Twitter that Tristan Rogers would be reprising Colin. "Join me in welcoming @tristanrogers back to the family!" Adds a spokesperson for Y&R, "We have an exciting story planned for Tristan Rogers and Jess Walton (Jill). Look for Colin Atkinson to be back in Genoa City in early 2014."

Rumors have been flying fast and furious since Daytime Confidential first posted that Tristan Rogers (Robert, GENERAL HOSPITAL) would be leaving Port Charles to return to Genoa City, reprising his role of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS' Colin. And while neither soap has officially confirmed the news at this point in time, GH headwriter Ron Carlivati has essentially confirmed it on Twitter.

"I had no idea Tristan Rogers was leaving," he posted. "I found out last night. Now I have one day to write him out of a big February Sweeps storyline."

As to whether or not Rogers will be returning to Y&R and reunite Colin with Jess Walton's Jill, we'll be sure to let you know as soon as we hear anything official. But in the meantime, Carlivati promises "you will see a lot of Robert between now and February." The scribe also called for fans not to start trying to throw blame around. "Please respect Tristan Rogers and his decision," he wrote.

SOAPnet Switched Off For Good


How much more bad news can soap fans take? Back in 2011, Disney announced plans to pull SOAPnet from the air and replace it with Disney Junior, a channel aimed at toddlers. That channel launched as planned in early 2012, but many soap fans found that their cable providers were still offering SOAPnet. However, Disney has now notified cable operators that they will no longer provide programming for SOAPnet after December 31. Which means that when 2014 gets underway, soap fans will have to find another way to watch their favorite shows. Same-day episodes of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS began airing on TVGN earlier this summer.
