The week of May 16, 2022
Sam McMurray has been cast as Dwight, a new character who’ll connect with Kate Linder’s Esther Valentine. The actor, who’s had roles on primetime hits like Breaking Bad, Friends, The King of Queens, and The Sopranos, is also no stranger to daytime. McMurray previously appeared as Phil on Edge of Night and Wes on Ryan’s Hope. He’ll begin airing later this month.
Y&R made its debut in 1973 and introduced more sexual undertones and younger characters to daytime soap operas. It has outlasted other soaps to become a mainstay for many households. Needless to say, four decades of storylines have kept viewers locked in.
From Victor Newman’s (Eric Braeden) family machinations to Traci Abbott’s (Beth Maitland) heart to the complicated love story of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis Summers (Michelle Stafford), Y&R knows how to entertain and keep fans coming back for more.
More than 45 years of gripping drama as well as love in the afternoon have kept this CBS daytime soap on the air and winning Daytime Emmys. Other daytime dramas include General Hospital (GH), Days of our Lives (DAYS), and The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B). Y&R airs weekdays on CBS. Check your local listings for air times.
