Young and the Restless

Finally on The Young and the Restless, Nikki got sloshed at the Jabot Christmas party, wandered out into a blizzard, and was mowed down by Reed, who was driving Charlie to a party because Charlie was drinking too. Tis the season! Reed didn’t see what he hit due to the storm, but later when it was revealed Nikki was in a coma after a hit-and-run, he realized he and not Santa and his reindeer ran over grandma. In happier news, Devon signed Fen to a recording contract, but didn’t allow Ana to serve as a producer, and Jack and Kerry made love. Coming up: A comatose Nikki dreams of Victor.
