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 ..

It was cute..

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.

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
