Bells Out, CBS In: Did the Bells Really Lose Their Reign at Y&R

Recommended Posts

Surfing around inbetween typing up another of my novel and came across the following articles posted 2 days ago.

 

Anyone else know how on point this article is? Reliable?

Trash article. CBS has never owned any part of Y&R; the license the show from Sony which distributes it, not CBS. Corday owns 1% of the show, the Bells own about 20%, and Sony owns the rest.

Garbage article, as everyone has said, CBS has never owned a stake in the show. If they had bought it, you best believe there would have been a Sony press release touting some corporate speak about a 'new era of synergy in production' or a 'strategic alliance to build Y&R to new creative heights'...The Bells have a minority stake, Corday Productions owns 1% of the show from their 1970s lawsuit against Bill Bell when he left DAYS, and Sony owns the rest.

Woah, you got me anxious for a minute! :o

 

I mean, the Bells still don't have any power to meaningful overhaul the show their way. Sony has complete control.
