The promo was shot on video. The programming is shot on film. "The Young and the Restless" is shot on video. Probably the creative teams don't want prime time programming looking like a soap opera. Also, film is well established medium for producing visual effect. Film stock choice and processing adjustment can be used to produce grain, contrast enhancement and depth of field tricks cinematographers and directors have relied on for decades. Grainy stock is the choice to convey the mood in a burned out building or a crack house for example. Conversely, video is seen as having a "cheap home video" effect by many. There are as many opinions as there people I guess.
