RELATED STORIES The Young as well as the Restless is turning to the memorable and also old to help extend its limited supply of fresh episodes during the coronavirus pandemic closure.
This Friday, April 3, “You’re welcomed to join #YR for the wedding of Victor and Nikki Newman,” the CBS sudser introduced Thursday on Twitter “Watch their initial ‘I do’s’ [on Friday] at our on a regular basis set up time … And we will certainly pick up where we ended today on Monday’s episode.”
The notable nuptials concerned very first broadcast on April 13, 1984, when the Mustache and Nikki trades vows for the really first time. (CBS did not quickly respond to TVLine’s query if airing a “traditional” episode will be a weekly point for the direct future.)
ABC’s General Hospital previously this week revealed just such a strategy: Also starting this Friday (and also scheduled to proceed with May 22), GH stars will certainly take turns teeing up an old episode, beginning with one that broadcast … a year ago, on April 3, 2019.
ABC’s single sudser had about 2 months’ well worth of episodes banked when manufacturing was closed down, which before this “Flashback Fridays” move took it through the end of May. CBS’ Y&R and The Bold as well as the Beautiful, at the same time, were readied to see their particular wells run dry in very early May, while NBC’s Days of Our Lives fires an incredible 8 months in advance, and therefore has fresh product to put on the shelves till the fall.
With the majority of the country stuck at house, daytime’s four remaining daytime drama are seeing their rankings increase. For the week of March 23, which is when much of the U.S. went into quarantine, Y&R rose to an 11-month high, GH and B&B uploaded their finest numbers in two years, and also Days attracted its greatest numbers in more than a year.
