'The Young and the Restless' Celebrates 30 Years at #1

The Young and the Restless is celebrating its unprecedented 30th consecutive year – that's 1560 weeks – as television's top rated daytime soap opera, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending November 30.

Y&R, currently in its 46th season, was first broadcast in March 1973 and started its current winning streak the week ending December 30, 1988. Season-to-date, The Young and the Restless is averaging 4.42 million viewers, is the #2 overall daytime program (behind The Price is Right) and is the top program overall among women 25-54 and women 18-49. Thanks in large part to Y&R and TPIR, CBS has been #1 in daytime for 32 consecutive years.

“The legacy of this show is remarkable,” said Angelica McDaniel, Executive Vice President, CBS Daytime Programs and Syndicated Programs Development. “No other modern day entertainment program in ANY daypart has been the top-rated show for 30 consecutive years. This is an extraordinary feat that could not have been possible without the passion and commitment of the fans, cast, crew and staff. Their support has helped to make CBS’ daytime block the powerhouse that it is.”
