'The Young and the Restless'
Years on TV: 1968-
Noteworthy characters and/or actors: If they aren't meddling with each other's love lives, Jill Foster Abbott (played by Brenda Dickson, Bond Gideon, Deborah Adair, Melinda Fee, Judith Chapman and Jess Walton over the years) and Katherine Chancellor (Jeanne Cooper) are trying to kill each other. This feud just won't quit.
The plot: Dramatic twists and turns originally focused on the rich Brooks family and the poor Fosters, before introducing a slew of new characters. Plot lines involving themes like premarital sex, incest and rape continue to play a big part in the development of the story. Pictured: Eric Braeden and Signy Coleman
