Set in Genoa City, Wisconsin, this is the forty-five-year-old soap opera that centers 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 centered on the competition between the two companies: Victor's Newman Enterprises and the Abbotts' Jabot.Written by
In 1983, Veleka Gray portrayed two different characters simultaneously: Patti's psychiatrist Dr. Sharon Reaves, and hotel manicurist Ruby. Unusually, the characters were neither look-a-likes nor related, they were involved in different storylines, and shared no scenes together. See more »

Every weekday growing up, my mom would record this and The Bold And The Beautiful. The entire time, I kept wondering: Why? Why do people watch these shows? They're so terrible. They're so bland, boring, and devoid of personality. I can't pay attention for more than six seconds without immediately realizing that the dialogue is some of the worst stilted mush ever put on television. Who the hell talks like that? The acting in these shows ranges from passable to pretty worthless. I'd imagine it's because they're not trying since these actors are handed such rubbish scripts rushed out daily. The plots are so convoluted and melodramatic, you can tell they're making it up as they go along. All the sets look cheap. The direction, cinematography, and music are all flat and uninteresting. No aspect of the production is remotely competent, let alone good.
My mom still watches it because she's been following it since 1972, but I see nothing to entice new viewers. These soap operas are nothing more than background noise and something to fill daytime slots on Channel 3. Don't watch this. Almost anything else on TV right now is better than this.
