'Saturday Night Live' Uses Old Soap Photos on 'Forgotten TV Gems' Set


On last weekend's episode of Saturday Night Live on NBC, Keanan Thompson hosted a sketch titled "Forgotten TV Gems" whose set used several photos from classic daytime soap operas. The forgotten gem was a faux classic TV show called "Supportive Women," starring characters played by Cecily Strong and Sarah Silverman. While the photos used had nothing to do with the sketch, it was cool to see the faces of Laura and Luke Spencer (Genie Francis and Anthony Geary, General Hospital), Brooke English and Erica Kane (Julia Barr and Susan Lucci, All My Children), Victor Newman (Eric Braeden, The Young and the Restless), Hope and Bo Brady (Kristian Alfonso and Peter Reckell, Days of our Lives), Margo and Tom Hughes (Margaret Colin and Justin Deas, As the World Turns), Alan Spaulding and Mike Bauer (Christopher Bernau and Don Stewart, Guiding Light), the Capwells from Santa Barbara and more.

Watch the sketch below:
