Kate McKinnon once again cracks up her Saturday Night Live co-stars, and the audience, and herself when she appears  on last night’s episode as Deenie, somebody’s mom who is obsessed with her favorite soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

Deenie comes in during a segment of  Weekend Update to give a recap of what happened in Genoa City in 2015 and chats it up with Weekend Update anchor, Colin Jost.

However, Deenie has nicknames for all of the characters on Y&R  including: “Moustache Man”, “Perfect Skin”, “Sexpot”, “Dark Hair”, “Hottie”, “Skinny Minnie”, “Priss Pants”, “Big Boobs”, and “Military Doctor”.

Watch Kate as Deenie explaining what went down this year in Genoa City after the jump! Then, let us know which characters is Deenie referencing above?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

That is so hilarious. That is exactly how my Gran would describe her soaps. HaHa.

Kate McKinnon is a marvel! Her characters and impersonations are terrific. I’m still cracking up over her alien abductee character from a couple of weeks ago!

Right, Jamesj? Plus, it is so obvious and amusing to watch Colin Jost thoroughly enjoy himself watching the characters do the ridiculous. You could tell how sometimes, he tries very hard to control his mirth.He just soaks it all up. Last night we were watching old episodes;…. Jimmy Fallon doing Barry Gibb with Justin Timberlake, as Robin, gets me every time. I never tire watching these shows over and over again.

Thanks for your reply, CeeCee. You’re right about Colin Jost. It’s such fun to watch the show when the writing is good and the actors really get into character. Kate is adept, for sure. In the scene I referenced (talk show with alleged survivors of alien abductions), Kate was so good, host Ryan Gosling was cracking up. I also love those Timberlake episodes and much, much more…

@ su0000, another SNL fan! Awesome! I definitely like your input as well! Lots of great memories from SNL.

You and CeeCee may be surprised to hear that I continue to use countless SNL catchphrases, some decades old, in part because I’m such a wild and crazy guy!

@su.
Thanks for the info. Speaking of George Carlin, he and my grandfather went to the same all-boys High School; Cardinal Hayes. He was always a very funny man, or so granpapa says.

That’s funny Ceecee, I was watching “The Best of Jimmy Fallon” and “The Ladies of SNL” yesterday also.

When you see Jimmy Fallon doing impressions you realize how talented he really is. I was amazed how he looked and sounded exactly like Adam Sandler and Gilbert Gottfried! And his Bee Gees impression even made his fellow Bee Gee Justin Timberlake almost bust out laughing. He got Justin to laugh when they did a Family Feud sketch recently.

James: SATURDAY NIGHT will never get old. All the characters are memorable and immortal…..and neither will Steve Martin’s catchphrase, get old. I try never to miss a show.
Blake: Timberlake and Fallon are a class and classic act. Those two are the funniest pair since Abbot and Costello. Have you ever seen Fallon do impressions of the gorgeous Jim Morrison? Or THE BOSS? How about Neil Young? My gosh….to die for. These skits never lose their flavor.

That was the best! I loved watching Ryan Gosling lose it every time she was telling bits of her story.

Hi Chrystie!

I had to rewatch the skit after my last post, just to refresh my memory. This past weekend’s show (with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts) was terrific, in my opinion…

You would think an NBC show like SNL would have had her talk about Days instead.

So in Deenie’s cast of characters, who is who?
Mustache – Victor
Big Boobs – Ashley?
Military Dr – Stitch

I was wondering the same thing, lol. Couldnt tell who Big Boobs is…
at first I thought Nikki? And Perfect Skin, I thought of Abby until it
was obvious by the boathouse reference she meant Hilary.
But was funny overall.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
