This week, The Young and the Restless returned with all new episodes. It marked the culmination of daytime dramas hitting the airwaves after months of "classics," at least for three of them. In commemoration of the event, TV Guide Magazine has created four different covers for its August 17 issue. 

Days of Our Lives is the only daytime drama to bank enough episodes to air new material throughout the COVID-19 lockdown. And we all know what's happening in Salem!
