As the news continues to preempt the soaps, some episodes have actually gone on to air in some markets or only be partially interrupted. This means that fans will have to make sure to seek them out either in the overnight hours on their local network affiliate or online. And in the case of THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS‘ Jan. 24 episode, Peter Bergman (Jack) urged fans not to miss out. “Today’s original episode may be interrupted for CBS News impeachment coverage,” the star advised from the soap’s set. “Go to CBS.com or CBS All Access later today to watch the entire episode.”
So while it’s good that Y&R won’t be falling further behind schedule, it also means that fans who don’t want to miss out will have to make the effort to seek it out. Although the soap was preempted nationally on Jan. 21 and 22, the Jan. 23 episode did air in some markets and was released online. So just click here to watch it so you can stay caught up on all the drama once the episode is made available for viewing.
