One of the major broadcast networks announced today that one of its shows is marking a stunning 26 consecutive years as the top-rated show in its category.

CBS announced that its long-running soap “The Young and the Restless” accomplished the feat, notching 26 years as the top daytime drama. The announcement follows Nielsen live plus same day results for the week ending Dec. 12.

“For the week, ‘The Young and the Restless’ averaged 4.76 million viewers, up +4% over last week,” CBS announced. “The program also led the week in both women 25-54 (1.8/12) and women 18-49 (1.2.09). Season-to-date, ‘The Young and the Restless’ is daytime’s #1 drama in viewers (5.04m), women 25-54 (2.1/14) and women 18-49 (1.4/10).”

The program, which is currently in its 41st season on the air, started its winning streak the week of Dec. 26, 1988.



  1. Yes, but of course. “The Young and Restless” is Number 1 because it is the only Day Time serial in production is it not? Am I close? Just as close as a “burrrrning, tinnnnngling sensation of a hemorrrhoidal tissue…”
