TVGN replacing SOAPnet as basic cable home for “The Young and the Restless”

Beginning this summer, TVGN will become the exclusive basic cable home for the popular CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless, TVGN announced today. The acquisition of The Young and the Restless marks the first TVGN programming announcement as part of the new CBS Corporation/Lionsgate partnership.

When The Young and the Restless moves to TVGN this summer, it will be coming from SOAPnet, where it already has been a basic cable ratings success (it has been SOAPnet’s No. 1 series for five consecutive years). In its new home on TVGN, The Young and the Restless will keep its 7pm ET/PT time slot, where it has built a loyal fan base, and will continue to appear day and date with its broadcast on CBS (where it airs weekdays at 12:30pm ET; 11am PT).

The Young and the Restless just celebrated its 40th anniversary last week, and has been the No. 1-rated daytime drama for over 24 years. The series 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.

    • I agree either bring soap net back or move general hospital to TVGN. I don’t want to pay for DVR service to record the soaps so I can watch in the evenings or on the weekends when I have time. I did find out that they can be watched online , but it is not the same day episode being aired.
