This is the night NBC has been waiting for all year. A rough 2013 it has been, for sure, with prime time in freefall and even institutions like the Today and Tonight shows embattled by negative PR. You might begin to think Do No Harm isn't just a bad memory, but a motto the Peacock network somehow just can't seem to live up to.
If the tide is ever to start turning, it will be on Mondays, with the return of the game-changing The Voice (8/7c) and its irresistible, instantly iconic "Blind Audition" episodes. New to the hot seats: Shakira and Usher, filling in this cycle for Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera, with NBC hoping it doesn't matter who's sitting in those revolving chairs. The show's the thing, and this has always been the best part of The Voice.

Do weddings come cheaper by the dozen? Let's hope so for Nikki Newman's sake. The tragedy-prone heroine of The Young and the Restless — played by Melody Thomas Scott — has married for the 12th time, as part of the CBS soap's 40th anniversary celebration. TV Guide Magazine rang Thomas Scott to find out how it feels to be Nikki Reed Foster Bancroft DiSalvo Newman Abbott Landers Newman Newman Chow Sharpe Abbott Newman. Monogram that!
No worries, soap fans! Jeanne Cooper is doing just fine. The Emmy-winning grande dame has been absent from The Young and the Restless for several weeks causing much concern among her devotees, especially when her character, Katherine Chancellor, failed to show up Monday for the start of the Victor-Nikki wedding. Turns out Cooper, like many other Y&R stars, was hit with a bad bout of the flu but she's now back and sassier than ever! TV Guide Magazine had a chat with the outspoken, 84-year-old survivor about Y&R's upcoming 40th anniversary (March 26), the infestation of newbies in Genoa City and, of course, those scary symptoms Katherine's been having. Duck for cover!
Nothing but the best for Nikki Newman! The much-married heroine of The Young and the Restless is hiring The Bold and the Beautiful's Eric Forrester — played by John McCook — to design a bridal gown for her fourth wedding to the dastardly Victor Newman. And that'll have McCook crossing over to Y&R to make a guest appearance at the ceremony (March 18-19 on CBS). TV Guide Magazine spoke with the veteran actor about his trip to Genoa City and, of course, what it's like to suddenly be the biggest slut on B&B!

His fans are thrilled, except for the ones who are totally pissed. Emmy winner Steve Burton made big news — and crushed a lot of hearts — last fall when he left his role as General Hospital mob man Jason Morgan and moved to Nashville. So how come he's back in L.A. and working at The Young and the Restless a mere three months later? Burton hits the CBS soap Jan. 29 as war vet Dylan McAvoy, the supposedly-dead ex of Avery Clark (Jessica Collins). TV Guide Magazine caught up with Burton to get the deets on this head-scratching career move. This star has some 'splainin' to do!
