THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS Anniversary Poll Results — Did Your Favorites Win?

Today, March 26, marks the 45th anniversary of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ very first episode on CBS Daytime so what better time to reveal the results of the special anniversary poll we asked you all to take leading up to the big day!

To prepare for Y&R’s week-long anniversary celebration, we asked you loyal fans of the CBS sudser to vote on your all-time favorites in categories like “Hero,” “Heroine,” and “Villain.” And while many veteran characters were honored with the most votes, there were a couple of upsets. One newer couple has such devoted fans that they were able to outnumber supporters of a couple classic pairings that have been around much longer. The contest for “Favorite Schemer” was a close three-way race but one charmer managed to edge out his closest competition. But it was “Favorite Villain” that was the tightest one with the victor only winning by 14 votes!

Browse through the gallery to see if your favorites won and see how each contest turned out!
