SNL Spoofs What Soap Operas Would Be Like In COVID-19-Themed ‘The Sands Of Modesto’

Courtesy/NBC

As the entire world is taking precautionary measures against the outbreak of the coronavirus, Saturday Night Live took the opportunity to ham it up and show what it would be like on your favorite daytime dramas with “alternative ways” for a bitch-slap, catfight, a kiss, a phone call and other soap staples that would need to be changed up in order to protect the cast. Even stock footage enters the satire, making it all the more amusing.

Watch what happens when SNL host, Daniel Craig, and the cast including: Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Chloe Fineman take on their soap roles in ‘The Sands of Modesto.    Check it out below.

Then let us know if you got a kick out of it, or not, via the comment section below, and while your prepping your thoughts, think of this actually happened on Y&R, DAYS, GH and B&B! Might it up the ratings?

But when he touches her with the fake hand it could have the virus on it couldnt it…anyway this shows an overly panic world…for example here one of the actors or crew member would have to have the virus…and you wouldnt be able to touch anything the way this goes!!!!…just like when you go into a supermarket now and wipe the shopping cart handle-we forget everything in the store has been touched and repeatedly on a daily basis so you really arent protected!!!!

lol, it was funny and over the top, kudos, but in all seriousness, I think GH should do a storyline on the corona virus maybe not hit us over the head w/ it but mention it considering they are a hospital show and have a doctor who specializes in infectious disease ( paging Dr. Finn).

IT was funny. I don’t think it disgraced soap operas. Anyone with half a brain knows our soaps are soooo much more than a spoof ~ and that’s exactly what this was, a spoof on the drama of what some people are calling for regarding this pandemic. While we need to educate ourselves and stay safe, this was some comic relief, in my opinion.

I thought it was very lame. And I (& my mother) can gripe about/make fun/question the craziness of our shows & believe me, we do, BUT I hate when anyone else makes fun of them!

Hysterical. Did they mimic Ramsey’s “acting?”-the overly dramatic, whispering drivel that he spits out.

That’s the comedic take from NBC. Meanwhile, the non-comedy version of NBC throws Lester Holt in your face every damn day like clockwork at 1:00 PM to give you the daily fear report and cut into Days airtime (though never the Big Pharma commercials, of course), even though there’s very little actual news in what they’re reporting. And certainly nothing that couldn’t wait for the nightly news.

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
