Okay, CBS soap fans, this is it! While THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL will be preempted on the West Coast on Wednesday, May 4, for the UEFA Champions League Tournament, this is the final leg of the semi-final, and the final is being held on a Saturday!
This is great news for viewers in the Pacific Time Zone as they have had to endure multiple preemptions over the past months for coverage of the sporting event. And because these aren’t national preemptions affecting everyone, those in the areas where Y&R and B&B didn’t air during their regular time slot were forced to seek out the episodes online at CBS.com or Paramount+ or else hope that their local CBS affiliate aired the soaps in another time slot overnight.
And with Diane back on Y&R and turning Genoa City upside down and Steffy remembering more and more about the night Sheila shot her and killed Finn on B&B, fans don’t want to miss a single moment of the drama, let alone an entire episode!
So West Coast fans, you’re going to have to go out of your way to stay caught up one last time this week, but once the drama resumes normally again on Thursday, May 5, it should be smooth sailing from there! (Barring any breaking news interruptions, of course… nothing can be done about those!)
