Youngrestless

The Young and the Restless is a CBS network soap opera created by William J. Bell & Lee Phillip Bell which premiered on March 26, 1973 and as of 2017, it has aired for 5662 episodes.

The show was originally broadcast as half-hour episodes, five times a week & then expanded to one-hour episodes on February 4, 1980. It is also currently the highest-rated daytime drama on American television.

PlotEdit

Set in the fictional Wisconsin town of Genoa City, the series originally focused on two core families: the wealthy Brooks family and the working class Foster family.

After a series of recasts and departures in the early 1980s, all of the original characters except Jill Foster and Katherine Chancellor were written out. Bell replaced them with the new core families, the Abbotts and the Williamses.

Over the years, other families such as the Newmans, Winters & the Baldwin-Fishers were introduced.

Despite these changes, one storyline that has endured through almost the show's entire run is the feud between Jill Abbott & Katherine Chancellor (which is the longest rivalry on any American soap opera).
