On the Thursday, December 4 broadcast of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report," host <strong>Stephen Colbert</strong> covered the ambassadorship of "The Bold and the Beautiful" producer Colleen Bell, wife of head writer and executive producer, <strong>Bradley P. Bell</strong>, with a hilarious take on the <a title="‘B&B’ Producer Colleen Bell Confirmed as Ambassador to Hungary; Senator John McCain Livid!" href="https://www.soapoperanetwork.com/2014/12/b-senator-john-mccain-livid">drama surrounding her confirmation</a> following some lively comments from Senator <strong>John McCain</strong>, who strongly disagreed with President Obama's choice of Bell for the position. “We’re about to vote on a totally unqualified individual to be ambassador to a nation which is very important to our national security interest. Her qualifications are as a producer of the television soap opera ‘The Bold and The Beautiful,’ contributed 800,000 [dollars] to Obama in the last election and bundled more than $2.1 million for President Obama’s re-election effort,” said McCain on the Senate floor on Tuesday, December 2, just before Bell was confirmed as the U.S. Ambassador to Hungary with a vote of 52-42.

An odd question for sure, but while on his book tour promoting his newest title, "The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year," Bravo TV executive and "Watch What Happens Live" host <strong>Andy Cohen</strong> was recently posed the question, "If <strong>Susan Lucci</strong> [ex-Erica Kane, 'All My Children'] showed up at your door naked, what would you do?"

"Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" has been entertaining millions of late night talk show fans since debuting earlier this year as an escape from late night talk shows. The premise of the HBO series is that host <strong>John Oliver</strong> takes a closer look at the happenings of the past week in terms of news, politics and social media, and culls it altogether into one half hour of entertainment that seeks to empower and inform its viewers. In a segment highlighting a "CBS This Morning" report on a device known as the Salmon Cannon, Oliver, who was so in awe of the Salmon Cannon concept, gives viewers insight into the purpose (it helps push the Salmon that typically get caught in hydroelectric dams over said dams) and decided to make his own, which resulted in the flying fish hitting several of television's biggest stars including "The Young and the Restless'" <strong>Sharon Case</strong> (Sharon Newman) during a made up "Y&R" scene featuring co-star <strong>Joshua Morrow</strong> (Nicholas Newman) as the two fight over Sharon's hidden secrets.

I mean, we had fun shooting it, the characters were having a great time at this party. It really was almost like 'The Hangover' [the movie] kind of," shared <strong>Sharon Case</strong> (Sharon) in a joint interview with <strong>Joshua Morrow</strong> (Nicholas) set to air today on Hallmark Channel's "Home & Family."

He's had starring roles on "All My Children," "As The World Turns," "Guiding Light" and currently "Days of our Lives" as Aiden Jennings, but despite his long soap career as a serious actor you'd be surprised to learn what hidden talent Daniel Cosgrove keeps close to the vest. In a recent visit to the Burbank Studios, where "DAYS" is filmed, Soap Opera Network was given an exclusive and rare opportunity of witnessing Cosgrove beatboxing. Yes, you read that right.

In the final segment of the Friday, May 30 episode of ABC's "General Hospital," the real Luke Spencer (Anthony Geary) asked the question, "Who are you?" to the person who has been impersonating him for the past several months. To amp up the drama, fans were treated to a chilling scene in which somber music played in the background as Fluke (aka: Fake Luke) responded and said, "Who am I? That's the million-dollar question, isn't it? Who do I look like? You? Lucas Lorenzo Spencer? But you want to know who is behind the face. You want to know who's pulling the strings, doing the dance. You want to know whose big, buzzing brain is behind this genius plan. Let me tell you in the simplest possible terms. Wouldn't you like to know?" Fluke then winked at Luke.
