Y&R On The Move:

By SOD • Posted: Apr 3, 2013

TVGN has announced that it will become the exclusive basic cable home for Y&R after the soap stops airing on SOAPnet this summer.

TVGN TO BECOME THE EXCLUSIVE BASIC CABLE DESTINATION FOR
#1 DAYTIME DRAMA “THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS”

Acquisition of Top-Rated Daytime Franchise from Sony Pictures Television
Marks First TVGN Programming Announcement as Part of New
CBS Corporation/Lionsgate Partnership

“The Young and the Restless” Set to Air on TVGN at 7:00 PM, ET/PT with Day-and-Date Episodes Beginning This Summer


LOS ANGELES — April 3, 2013 — TVGN today announced that it will become the exclusive basic cable home for the #1 daytime drama, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS (Y&R). The acquisition of the top-rated daytime franchise from Sony Pictures Television marks the first TVGN programming announcement as part of the new CBS Corporation (NYSE: CBS.A and CBS)/Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF) partnership.

Beginning this summer, Y&R will move from Soapnet, where it has already been a basic cable ratings success, to TVGN, keeping the 7:00 PM, ET/PT time slot where it has built a loyal fan base, and will appear day-and-date with its broadcast on the CBS Television Network. One of the most popular franchises in daytime television history, Y&R recently celebrated 40 years on the air on CBS, where it has dominated the ratings in daytime.

Currently, Y&R is the #1 daytime drama on network television among total viewers and key demos, including women 18-49 and 25-54. It has also been Soapnet’s #1 series for five consecutive years, delivering a significant audience share among women 18-49 and 25-54—two key demos for TVGN.

Y&R, which is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company in association with Sony Pictures Television, has been the #1-rated daytime drama for more than 24 years. It has received 119 Daytime Emmy Awards, more than any other daytime drama, and 412 Emmy nominations. The show is broadcast weekdays (12:30-1:30 PM, ET; 11:00 AM-12:00 Noon, PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Y&R revolves around the rivalries, romances, hopes and fears of the residents of the fictional Midwestern metropolis, Genoa City. The lives and loves of a wide variety of characters mingle through the generations, dominated by the Newman, Abbott, Chancellor, Baldwin and Winters families. When THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS premiered in 1973, it revolutionized the daytime drama. It continues to set the standard with strong characters, socially conscious storylines, romance and sensuality.

Any hope they'll start rerunning classic episodes?

I doubt it.

Is there a way to watch that network without the guide scrolling at the bottom now or do they still do that? I remember Directv having an alternate TVGuide Channel without the scroll but don't know if other providers have that too. Uverse doesn't have the channel at all although CableOne, Directv and Dish Network all do. ^o)


I thought this thread may have been about Y&R's studio after the way Jeanne Cooper talked about how bad of a condition it's in and how the execs have run over to CBS Radford studios so they don't have to work there. I think CBS Radford is where Passions was taped actually, not that it has to do with anything.

I must be missing something, how exactly is this a good move if all cable providers don't have this station? I've had soapnet since the beginning never had Tv.G so I don't like this.

they don't have the scrolling on the bottom anymore, they got rid of that last year, now it's just a regular cable channel, they air sitcoms like Caroline in the City(or they used too)

TV Guide is a available in more households than SoapNet. It may not work for some of you, but it's a better business decision for the show/Sony.

Well the tv listings are still scrolling on my system. Pretty aggravating to watch anything when it is like that.

On my cable system they no longer scroll listings, so this is good news as I no longer have SoapNet.

I no longer watch Y&R, but if I did, it wouldn't be viewed on TVGuide Network because my cable company still scrolls the guide at the bottom and having the show I'm watching all scrunched up is annoying. If I'm watching on tv, I want the full screen, not the top four/five inches.

honey chile, if you have direct tv, I am almost positive you have tvgn, it seems to me I've seen it while scrolling through the guide and it's with the basic channels. ;)
