Broadcast history

Early years, 1973–80

.In spring 1973, CBS decided to discontinue production on two of its four in-house serials; one of these was the controversial Where the Heart Is, a show reminiscent of Peyton Place's sex-driven intrigue that focused on multiple-married characters and incestuous themes.^ I've been watching this show since the 80's and feel like I know these characters.

For its part, NBC would enter into a string of low-rated disasters at that timeslot for the next several years (among them an attempt to revive Jeopardy! in 1978–79), while ABC similarly struggled until it moved The $20,000 Pyramid there in January 1978. However, Pyramid's time was running out, and the former hit game wrapped up six years on the network in June 1980. The only parts of the country where The Young and the Restless experienced some trouble were those Eastern time zone markets where affiliates plugged the show into the network's half-hour access break at 1 p.m./Noon (in order to free the Noon hour for local newscasts); there, ABC's All My Children would somewhat hinder The Young and the Restless's progress, especially when the former show expanded to an hour in April 1977.

Rise to the top, 1980s

.However, the show's progress in the ratings was steady, and when the long-running soap Love of Life was canceled on February 1, 1980, CBS rewarded The Young and the Restless's performance with an expansion to a full hour the following Monday.^ CBS will cancel the show.

.To those stations that carried the feed directly, namely the Eastern time zone affiliates again, it experienced at best mixed results, while Central time zone stations often tape-delayed the feed one day in order to keep the show in its original slot of 11 a.m., which meant that ABC's Family Feud, then daytime's highest-rated game, gave the soap considerable opposition.^ I have watched this show from day one.

.With the less-than-impressive results, CBS reinstated the affiliate break to its traditional time network-wide and, taking into account the local stations' desire for scheduling flexibility, gave them the option of running The Young and the Restless at either noon/11 (the preference of most) or 12:30/11:30 (mostly in the Eastern time zone), on different feeds.^ Today at 12:30 CBS (ch 8) All Upcoming Airings The soap-ratings leader for the last 12 years and running, this is the steamer set in Genoa City, where the Newman and Abbott dynasties stir it up in the bedroom and the boardroom.

.The wisdom of CBS' decision was confirmed by the continued downfall of NBC's ratings at midday and the eroding popularity of Feud, which by this time aired also as a five-day-per-week syndicated strip on local stations in the early-evening Access slots, something which likely brought the Richard Dawson-hosted game overexposure and consequent audience backlash.^ It’s something that none of us would have even bothered to look into at home, and yet we liked it.

.The pace of daytime's decline was sped up considerably in 1994 and 1995 by the relentless coverage of the O. J. Simpson murder case following the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman in June 1994. The televised daily courtroom trial of O.J. Simpson lasted from January 1995 – October 1995. Although the network continued to air the show in pattern, stations often instead chose to air live coverage of the trial from CBS Newspath or another news service, thus the series was pre-empted daily by the trial on many stations, which started right at 12:00pm ET/9:00am PT. Instead it aired at various times during the night (sometimes beginning at odd times such as 2:18 a.m.^ Mon Jan 18, 12:00am .

Theme song and other music

"Nadia's Theme" has been the theme song of The Young and the Restless since the show's debut in 1973. The melody, originally titled "Cotton's Dream", was written by Barry De Vorzon and Perry Botkin, Jr. as incidental music for the 1971 theatrical film Bless the Beasts and Children. The melody was later renamed "Nadia's Theme" after the ABC television network lent the music for Romanian gymnast Nadia Comăneci's performance during the 1976 Summer Olympics.[23]
.Botkin wrote a rearranged version of the piece specifically for The Young and the Restless's debut, which has basically remained unchanged, save for a three-year stint in the early 2000s, when an alternate, more jazzy arrangement of that tune was used.^ I have been watching The Young and The Restless for almost 30 years and if Victor leaves the show you may as well kiss it goodbye.

All background music for the show has been composed by first, Don McGinnis, Jerry Winn, and Bob Todd, with Jack Alloco and Jez Davidson assuming the duties in the 1980s. During the 1980s, the show employed a mixture of the original score and new pieces composed by Alloco and Davidson. However, Alloco and Davidson kept all background music within a classical theme, to provide continuity. .Two soundtrack albums were released, one in 1974 by Pickwick International Records, and another in 1998 by Paradigm Records.^ Moreover, evolution and complex systemic migration from one steady state to another is not a paradigm well understood by the aged.
  • ABC The Drum Unleashed - The young and the restless 18 January 2010 4:04 UTC www.abc.net.au [Source type: Original source]

The 1974 release contained many pieces from the original score by Winn, McGinnis, and Todd, while the 1998 release was made up entirely of compositions by Alloco and Davidson. .The music composed by Alloco and Davidson makes up 90 percent of the show's score today, supplemented by occasional music from other sources.^ I wish the writers could remain as faithful to the actors that make the show what it was and is today.

Music from Winn, McGinnis, and Todd is also still used occasionally. .Other background pieces were also utilized from the film soundtrack "Bless The Beasts And Children", an instrumental version of the movie's title tune was used often in the show's early years, last being used in February, 2001.

Starting in 1984, the sequence both began and ended with an interlocking Y and R painted on the white canvas in a sweeping brush motion. The logo (and in the earlier years, the drawings) were done by artist Sandy Dvore. The drawings were now sketched with a lighter shade of gray than the previous sketches. The drawings were replaced with live-action shots of the characters in formal or semi-formal wear, still on a white background, in 1988.

.Beginning on December 24, 1999, in an unprecedented move for a main title sequence of a daytime soap opera, the names of the principal cast members were mentioned (whereas previously the main title only showed the cast members' faces); however, Y&R continues to include the main cast members' names in an alternate version of the closing credits once a week.^ As a member of genY, I relate to the floating world and don't want to be stuck in some fartarse job - however safe - until I'm superannuated like previous generations.

For over 25 years, the announcer for the show's opening and closing credits was Bern Bennett, who would tell viewers to "Join us again for The Young and the Restless." In 2003, Bennett retired and CBS hired former casting assistant Marnie Saitta for the job of announcer. In 2006 Marnie Saitta was replaced by cast members announcing for the show.

Closing title

.Since the very first episode in 1973, the end credits were always featured on the left side of the screen while the right side consisted of art drawings (1973–84), the familiar brush stroke logo (1984-94/1999–), and the live action cast montage (1994–99) on the right side of the screen.^ NHL October 9, 2009 at 3:46 pm I’ve been watching Y & R since the very first show.

In 1999, CBS did away with the classic closing in favor of inserting a network promo with the credits listed on the network billboard at the bottom of the screen (the right side from 1999–2005); this is a procedure that has become standard among most channels. However, most international networks still broadcast the traditional closing credits.

Simple English

The Young and the Restless is a very popular soap opera in America. The show is the highest-rated soap opera, which means that more people watch it than any other soap opera. It aired its first episode on March 26, 1973. In the beginning, the show was about the Brooks family, who were very rich, and the Foster family, who were poor. Today, very few members of either family are still on the show.

Today, the show tells stories about two cosmetics companies: Newman Enterprises and Jabot Cosmetics. Newman's president is Victor Newman (played by the actor Eric Braeden) and Jabot's president is Jack Abbott (played by Peter Bergman). These two men hate each other very much and would like to see the other fail. This hatred is the root of much of the story on the show.
