Victor REFUSES to Accept Nikki’s Bastard Son on The Young and the Restless! (SNEAK PEEK)

No kitchen-repairing, blonde tyke-finding, Afghanistan-soldiering coffee baristas need apply for membership to the exclusive Newman family inner circle on The Young and the Restless. On today's installment of the CBS Daytime soap, Victor (Eric Braeden) tells Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) that Dylan (Steve Burton) shouldn't be treated like their other children. I always did like Victor.

On the other side of Genoa City, Billy (Billy Miller) is defending his relationship with Kelly (Cynthia Watros), while at the Tower of Newman, two One Direction band members get into a skirmish over who used up the last of the Axe body spray. Watch Friday's Y&R sneak peek after the jump!


It’s Summer’s Birthday Party, She Can Cry If She Wants To on Y&R (SNEAK PEEK)

Summer Newman, er Abbott, I mean Newman (Hunter King) celebrates her birthday today on The Young and the Restless. Will snarly Paw-Paw Victor (Eric Braeden) and snippy faux-daddy Jack (Peter Bergman) ruin the cake-cutting?

If they don't, Big Mama Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) and Sharon (Sharon Case) just might. Watch a sneak peek of Thursday's Y&R after the jump!

Jack Explains Espionage and Sesame Street to Kyle on The Young and the Restless (SNEAK PEEK)

Today our special letter is "E", boys and girls — "E" for "E-S-P-I-O-N-A-G-E". Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) has the unenviable task of trying to explain what corporate espionage is to his nitwit son today on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless.

Maybe when Diane Jenkins stole the sperm to make this kid, she forget to refrigerate it properly? Kyle (Hartley Sawyer), of course, just stands there going "Doh!" as his Daddy tries to teach him some sense. 

At least Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren (Tracey Bregman)'s kid is fairly sharp. Okay, so he does dope and ends up in the clink quite a bit. Other than that, Fenmore's (Max Ehrich) a regular Einstein compared with most of his peer group on this soap!

Speaking of Fen, Paul (Doug Davidson) simply will not stop investigating him for Carmine's murder (Marco Dapper). I guess the Chief of the Genoa City Police Department is still smarting over Lauren getting to keep the toaster in their divorce. Watch a sneak peek of today's Y&R after the jump!


Noah and Kyle Inherit The Newman/Abbott Rivalry on The Young and the Restless (SNEAK PEEK)

Noah Newman's (Robert Adamson) grandpa has despised Kyle Abbott's (Hartley Sawyer) dad for decades on The Young and the Restless — though Victor (Eric Braeden) always has had a hard on, I mean soft spot, for Kyle's ravishing Aunt Ashley (Eileen Davidson). On Monday's episode of Y&R, the strapping young lads are preparing to take their family feud into another generation!  

Meanwhile, Jack (Peter Bergman) and Jill Abbott (Jess Walton) are scheming and fighting like wild cats again. Now if they would just jump one another's bones for old time's sake. Watch Monday's Y&R sneak peek after the jump!


Shadam Faces Off Against The Moustache on The Young and the Restless! (SNEAK PEEK)

Alliances are tested and romance is in the air today on CBS Daytime's The Young and the Restless. Former lovers Adam (Michael Muhney) and Sharon (Sharon Case) get into it with Victor (Eric Braeden). Meanwhile, Kyle (Hartley Sawyer) wants to go work for Mr. Mumbles, much to Jack's (Peter Bergman) chagrin. 

At least Abby (Melissa Ordway) has something to smile about, courtesy of Tyler (Redaric Williams). Watch Thursday's Y&R sneak peek below!

DC #727: A Clockwork Orange

On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe and Regan Cellura discuss the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Karen and Katie team up to take over Spencer Publications and fire Bill. Hope meets Wyatt’s mom on The Bold and the Beautiful.

Patsy Pease will return to Days of Our Lives. A Sharknado hits Twitter when Jen Lilley claimed her DAYS character “Theresa could kick Maxie ass with one hand tied behind her back. #Days vs #GH #lovingit” Lilley also alleged she kept Maxie from being killed off of General Hospital. Sami isn’t happy with EJ when he reveals his plan to overthrow Stefano.

William DeVry books General Hospital as Connie’s boss. Maxie gets a visit from ghost Georgie. Silas and Ava have serious chemistry, and we want to see more of it. Brad tries to get in Michael’s pants.

Jack finds out the truth about Summer on The Young and the Restless. Hartley Sawyer has failed as a Kyle Abbott recast, and undermined the drama surrounding the revelation of Summer’s paternity.  Is it time for Y&R to get Blake Hood back, or simply find a much better actor? Is Y&R’s latest storyline twist involving Sharon as vile as the stomach churning pairing with Victor under the previous regime? Dylan and Chelsea are a snore. Can anything be done to make them more interesting?
