With hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, who were around to promote their new movie "Sisters," last night's final 2015 episode of "Saturday Night Live" featured a daytime drama wrap up presented by Somebody's Mom, Deenie (played by Kate McKinnon) during the popular "Weekend Update" segment. Hilarity ensued as Deenie recapped 2015 on CBS' "The Young and the Restless" with such character descriptions as mustache man, big boobs, sexpot, priss pants, red head, and perfect skin, among others, as a way to describe Genoa City's most prominent citizens.

NBC will be releasing a slew of new primetime programming this fall, all of which the network’s Chairman, Robert Greenblatt, hopes will be bolstered in February on the heels of the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. “The overriding strategy this year was to develop enough strong comedies and dramas to take advantage of the promotional heft of the Winter Olympics and devise two schedules for the upcoming season: one for fall and a slightly different one for midseason. I’m pleased to say that our development groups — headed by Jennifer Salke (scripted) and Paul Telegdy (alternative/reality) — really delivered,” Greenblatt said. “And aside from our Olympics planning, we also wanted to create better flow and compatibility on each night, and deploy our strongest lead-in (‘The Voice’) to maximum effect.”
ABC has consistently brought soap-worthy programming to primetime (“Desperate Housewives” and “Revenge,” to name but two), and the schedule for this fall is no different: Intermixing with popular mainstay shows like “The Middle,” “Modern Family,” and “Grey’s Anatomy,” come thirteen brand new shows, a few of which may spur “General Hospital” and other daytime soaps to come to mind! And Wendy Moniz (ex-Mayor Finn, “One Life to Live,” ex-Dinah Marler, “Guiding Light”) strengthens the soap/primetime connection with a role in the new drama, “Betrayal.” Read on to get the exciting details!
