In case you missed it, The Young and the Restless honored veteran actor Eric Braeden's milestone 40th anniversary on the television's #1 Daytime drama with three new tribute episodes celebrating his four decades in Genoa City.

But first, Y&R cast, crew, friends, and family came together to toast the beloved TV icon.

The lunch was held on one of CBS Television City's Y&R stages, which had been decorated with the Victor Newman artwork. And event emcee Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) kept guests laughing from the moment he introduced Braeden—who took his seat of honor to a rousing applause.

Watch The Young and the Restless weekdays on CBS and streaming on Paramount+.
