WATCH: Jimmy Fallon and Carol Burnett In The Lost 90's Soap Opera TENSIONS!

Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to bring on comedy legend Carol Burnett to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and have her part of a hilarious spoof on the soaps!

The set-up has Fallon and Burnett discussing the time they played husband and wife in the lost 90’s soap opera entitled Tensions! And apparently Tensions only got past its third episode before it was canceled, because everything was “too tense” for the viewers to handle.  The opening credits are even complete with an hourglass!

Inevitably, Fallon tosses to the clips of Tensions – which is actually being done live –  as Fallon and Burnett run from the host set to another and don their costumes and perform the “tense” scenes, which are complete with soap signatures; long soap tags at the end of scenes, the slap, and throwing coffee in another character’s face!  The best part of Tensions is that Jimmy and Carol were clearly having a blast doing it!

So after the jump enjoy Tensions, and then weigh-in if you got a giggle out of it!

That was a riot! Carol Burnett is the master of spoofs. (Fallon wasn’t too shabby either!) Thanks, Michael for sharing.

“That’s how time works, Petra.” Classic. Love Carol Burnett. And love how the spoof opening credits reminded me of the dopey “One Life to Live” credits that featured stuff like champagne pouring instead of the cast. Makes me want to go watch “The Carol Burnett Show.” Jimmy shouldn’t feel bad about cracking up; Carol has reduced greats such as Harvey Korman and Tim Conway to laughter too!

Nicolas Bechtel On His Return To GH: “I’m Back and I Am Still Spencer”

Look for Spencer Cassadine to finally return to the canvas of General Hospital!  Next week, Nicolas Bechtel reprises his fan favorite role as Nikolas’ son!

What will happen when Spencer learns that the father he grieved for over three years is alive and well?

Meanwhile, Bechtel took to Twitter to confirm his return to the ABC daytime drama series expressing: “Well…it’s out of the bag. It was so hard not to reply to all of you. I’m back and I am still Spencer. I can’t wait for next week. Thank you SO much to everyone who supported me. I love being a part of this phenomenal show #gh”

Viewers are looking forward to scenes between Bechtel and Marcus Coloma (Nikolas), Maura West (Ava), Genie Francis (Laura) and James Patrick Stuart (Valentin). Will those all come to pass? Stay tuned.

So, happy to know Bechtel is back as the mischievous Spencer C.? Comment below.

Real Andrews Returns As Marcus Taggert On General Hospital

Well, well, well! Looks who’s back in Port Charles!  A major surprise occurred during Thursday’s “Next-On-General Hospital” teasers when viewers saw Sonny’s former nemesis Marcus Taggert, and Sonny himself, in a clip from a scene.

Turns out that today on Friday, January 17th look for the return of Real Andrews to his role as Taggert!  Andrews took to his Twitter and Instagram account to confirm the casting news.

Maurice Benard tweeted: He’s Back!!! Bigger and better than ever. On General Hospital. You don’t want to miss it.”

While, Andrews tweeted: “It is going to be a great ride.”

Real played the role of Marcus from 1996-1997 and then again from 1998-2003.   He was last seen on the soaps on Days of our Lives back in 2016 and 2017.

In real life, Benard and Andrews are good friends.

Now the question is, could Taggert’s re-emergence tie in to the new case that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is working on, and somehow the return of Nikolas Cassadine to the canvas?  Years ago, Taggert’s sister, Gia was involved with the dark prince, leaving fans speculating that perhaps Nik and Gia had a daughter, who could turn out to be Trina played by Sydney Mikayla.  Hmmm.

So, give a big “welcome back” to Real as Taggert hits the screen today on GH via the comment section below.
