Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, The Young And The Restless is the thirty-year-old soap that centres on the saga between two wealthy families (the Newmans and the Abbotts) in the cosmetics industry. Head of the Newman clan is Victor Newman, the arrogant, cavorting billionaire and his wife Nikki; and running the Abbott show is Jack Abbott, the irresponsible, playboy CEO and his sister Ashley. Most of the show is centred on the competition between the two companies: Victor's Newman Enterprises and the Abbotts' Jabot. Written by
In 1976, ABC's "Wide World of Sports" used "Cotton's Dream", the theme song of "The Young and the Restless", as a musical background for a montage of Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci in action at the 1976 Olympics. Although Nadia never actually performed to this tune, it became associated with her; eventually, the song's writer officially renamed it "Nadia's Theme". See more »
I have been watching this show since I was a little girl with my mother, then with my daughters and now with my husband (yes he finally started to watch it with me). I would say almost from the very beginning. Over the years some of the story lines I didn't personally agree with but I stayed with the program because I believe that everyone has views or ideas that are different then mine. But over the past year I don't know who is writing the plots and/or determining which actors stay and who goes but I just can't take it anymore. Goodbye Y & R. Really Adam running over Delia - hasn't this character had enough negative, The character of Delia -already getting over cancer then to kill her off in such a tragic way, Jill and the box from Katherine is totally stupid, especially that her character would sell it on ebay, give me a break, like she needs the money. The Victor and Nikki characters should be dropped, just like the Brooks family, you run out of ideas for them - move on. The characters that needed to be dropped are kept on and the ones that need to go are still here. Enough is enough.
