Now this is a hoot!  On last night’s episode of CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, they asked, “What would the Late Show look like if it were a daytime soap?”

And of course, what soap would they emulate with the most classic of openings?  The Young and the Restless, of course!

Watch this riff on the opening title sequence from the number one CBS soap opera “Letterman style” featuring the Late Show crew, Paul Shaffer, and a very special guest appearance by none other than Y&R’s Sean Carrigan (Stitch).

CBS Daytime Sr. VP Angelica McDaniel tweeted today, “@SeanCarrigan you were on @letterman last night! Soap Up: Dave’s opening credits inspired by @YandR_CBS

Now after the jump, watch Dave’s “Young and the Restless” Opening!  Then, let us know what you thought of the spoof?

Seems Letterman is trying to emulate Joel McHale and his program, “The Soup,” which follows several daytime soaps often (not to mention several telenovas)!

While Letterman has a short “Y&R”-like opening, McHale will actually show clips and have guest soap stars on The Soup. He’s a LOT more fun to watch!

Of course Letterman would have to have Y&R, no other soap..
CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman is CBS..
Young and Restless is also CBS..
Keeping it in the CBS family ..

I love Young & Restless, and thought Letterman’s take on the Y & R Opening was pretty darn good. I thought it was very funny!!!! Letterman should make an appearance on Y & R, maybe as Victor’s brother or somebody’s Uncle. What do other Y & R fans think??? LOL!!!

I think it was great. Can’t figure out how I missed it, as I am a regular Letterman watcher. I saw it on this site. Wouldn’t mind seeing him make a guest appearance on Y&R. I also am a loyal watcher of Y&R almost since the beginning of the show!

Well, this is the sincerest form of flattery by David Letterman and the good folks at his show to do this. Y&R deserved this!

I want to know why they showed Sean Carrington/Stitch along with the rest of the Late Show cast.
I thought, when I saw it, that maybe SC was going to be on the show and that was the point of the Y&R spoof, but he wasn’t.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

Well, well, well! Look who is back on set at The Young and the Restless!  Thad Luckinbill, who is presumed dead as J.T. Hellstrom, was seen walking around the sound stages at CBS Television City on Wednesday.

That is because Thad is taping again at the number-one soap opera!  In a tweet put out by the series Twitter account with a photo of Thad (see below), they reveal: “Spotted On Set! J.T. Taking a coffee break. Stay tuned!”

So now the mystery begins!  Will J.T. be alive after all, which would exonerate Nikki, and her gal pals in crime, Phyllis, Sharon and Amelia from a murder rap?

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
