'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.
