For the week of March 28, 2016, the number of women 18-49 watching Y&R is 101,000 less than last year. Also, in the women 25-54 category, the show has lost 160,000 viewers. However, total viewership is up 414,000. Either that's a lot of men or folks over 54, not their ideal demographic.

Tatyanna Ali (ex-Roxanne) and her fiancé, Dr. Vaughn Rasberry, assistant professor of English at Stanford University, are becoming first-time parents. They are planning to marry in summer 2016.

Burgess Jenkins revealed that he left the role of Billy in November, 2015, because his wife, Ashlee Payne Jenkins, was diagnosed with breast cancer and had radiation and chemo in his hometown of Winston-Salem, NC where he has an acting school.

Peter Brown (ex-Dr. Greg Peters, Days; ex-Blake Hayes, B&B; ex-Robert Laurence, Y&R; ex-Roger Forbes, Loving; ex-Charles Sanders III, OLTL) passed away at 80 on March 21, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona. He is survived by his wife Kerstin and two sons, Matthew & Joshua.

Y&R has hired British television producer Mal Young. He has worked on several British soaps or "continuing drama series."

During SNL's Weekend Update on Saturday, December 19, 2015, cast member Kate McKinnon came out as Deenie, an avid soap watcher, who updated host Colin Jost on the latest happenings on her favorite show while chowing down on leftover baked salmon. The joke is that, after 40 years, she doesn't really know any of the characters' names, but the nicknames she gives like "Moustache Man," "Skinny Minnie," "Big Boobs," & "Sexpot" while describing high-rise fires and people kept in boat houses perfectly describe the recent plots on Y&R. It's a gag made even funnier if you're a soap fan yourself and know exactly what she's talking about! Check out the video here!

Scott Elrod (ex-Joe) and his fiancée Vanessa Vazart expect their first child together in 2016.

CBS' "The Young and the Restless" marks 1,405 consecutive weekly wins – a total of 27 years – as daytime’s #1 drama, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for the week ending December 11, 2015.  The Young and the Restless currently in its 42nd season, began its winning streak the week of Dec. 26, 1988.

UPDATE: On November 24, he tweeted that he has suffered a setback and needed emergency surgery, because his body rejected the metal in his elbow and it had to come out.
FURTHER UPDATE: On December 7, Daniel was back at work on the Y&R set. :)

Michelle Stafford (Nina, GH; ex-Phyllis, Y&R) announced the birth of her second child, son Jameson Jones Lee Stafford, on Saturday, October 24, 2015, with a sweet Instagram shot of the baby with his big sister, Natalia, 5.

Victoria Rowell (ex-Drucilla) sued CBS, Sony, and Bell-Phillip Television Production, Inc. for not rehiring her, because she spoke out about the show's lack of diversity in front and behind the camera. She says she left in 2007 due to racial discrimination but then wanted to return to Y&R or join B&B and was rejected. CBS responded that "after leaving Y&R on her own initiative, Ms. Rowell has attempted to rewrite that history through lawyers' letters and a lawsuit that has no merit. We harbor no ill will toward Ms. Rowell, but we will vigorously defend this case."
UPDATE: On May 13, 2015, CBS & Sony in a motion to dismiss responded that her claims are patently absurd since she never actually applied for any role on Y&R or B&B. "This lawsuit is nothing more than a blatant attempt by Plaintiff to force her way back onto a daytime television soap opera after she voluntarily resigned from her role in 2007." Read the document here!
FURTHER UPDATE: On November 10, 2015, California District Judge John Kronstadt dismissed six causes of action against Sony, with leave to amend if Rowell can prove a more viable retaliation claim. Read more here!
