I'm glad that Y&R is celebrating this milestone with advertising, new videos and historical features prior to episodes. This is a huge landmark that the only daytime soaps have reached. Days of Our Lives and General Hospital have both reached this milestone as have the late Guiding Light and As the World Turns. (The other shows who've made it to 11,000 are all news and/or sports.) When the material has aired, I'm going to post about it. Anyway, the worst part is the timing, as people have or will be returned to school in many places and it is right before Labor Day weekend. That said the timing can't be helped due to the nature of an episode count.
Here is the video that was released earlier this weekend celebrating the big day from the official Y&R Youtube channel.
Let's hope they honor the past and continue on into the future with style and panache.
