’The Young and the Restless’ earns 3 more years

NEW YORK (AP) — CBS says it’s renewing “The Young and the Restless” for three more years.

TV’s top-rated daytime drama has now been picked up through the 2013-14 season. It premiered in 1973.

CBS’ announcement Monday comes on the heels of NBC’s recent renewal of its long-running soap, “Days of Our Lives,” for two more years. Both shows are produced by Sony Pictures Television.

The glad tidings strike a contrast to the usual downbeat news about daytime dramas, whose ratings overall have been falling for years. In September, TV’s oldest soap, “As the World Turns,” left the air after 54 years.
