In the Great News episode “The Fast Track,” Carol (Andrea Martin) starts her job working as a P.A. for “Morning Wined Up” starring Kelly and Mary-Kelly (SNL alums Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch). While Carol is ridiculed by the co-hosts on air, Carol’s daughter Katie (Briga Heelan) tries to bring down the eccentric billionaire Fenton Pelt (Jim Rash) who’s suing “The Breakdown.” When warned by the network’s attorney and told to stop reporting on him and all of his business, Katie defies the orders and exclaims, “The facts are on our side!” which makes the attorney crack up.
The network attorney is portrayed by another SNL alum, Tim Meadows. He’s also known for his roles on The Goldbergs (Mr. Glascott), Son of Zorn (Craig), The Colbert Report (P.K. Winsome), Mr. Box Office (principal Theodore Martin), and The Bill Engvall Show (Paul DuFrayne), among others. Meadows is also recognized for his roles in the films Grown Ups (Malcolm), Mean Girls (Mr. Duvall), and The Ladies Man based on his SNL character Leon Phelps. Great News airs Thursdays at 9:30pm on NBC, right after Will & Grace.
