CBS' long-running soap The Young and the Restless

The acquisition is the first programming announcement for TVGN since CBS Corp. purchased a 50% stake in TV Guide, the parent
company of TV Guide Network.
Young and the Restless will begin airing on TV Guide
Network this summer and will keep its 7 p.m. time slot. It will air
day-and-date with the CBS broadcasts. The Young and the Restless had
been Soapnet's No. 1 series for the past five years.
The Young and the Restless is produced by Bell Dramatic Serial Company in
association with Sony Pictures Television.
