Y&R Leaving SOAPnet This Summer!


TV Guide Network will soon become the new, exclusive basic cable home for THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS. Beginning this summer, Y&R will move from the Disney-owned SOAPnet to TVGN (co-owned by CBS Corporation and Lionsgate). The soap will keep the same 7 p.m. ET/PT time slot it has on SOAPnet, and continue to air the same-day episodes of its CBS broadcast. The exact date for the change has yet to be announced, but the Y&R acquisition marks the first TVGN programming announcement for the new joint venture between CBS and Lionsgate.
