The Practice favorite, Michael Baldalucco is set to debut on The Young and the Restless on October 13th when he begins his role as bookie, Hogan, who will go after Jeffrey Bardwell (Ted Shackleford) and Gloria (Judith Chapman) to get back some much needed cashola!  And, what if the bungling lovebirds don’t cough it up?  Ah, well let’s just say Hogie has a bad side too.  In a new interview out today with TV Guide, Michael B. had this say about his first foray working in daytime with soapfamous Y&R EP, Paul Rauch, and a bit about his new alter-ego Hogan.

Baldalucco on how it is going being on a soap: “Well, they haven’t fired me! Paul Rauch is the big executive over there and he’s very, very nice, but he did have to give me some pointers. That guy is like the voice of God, with his voice coming over the loudspeaker. I was trying to do a little bit of business with Judith — I had Hogan being kind of friendly with Gloria because in soap operas you fool around with the girls, right? — but I guess I was moving too quickly. Paul told me to stick to business! At Y&R, there is no screwing up! There is no slouching!”

Baldalucco on just who is this Hogan fellow he is portraying: “He’s a great character — the kind of guy who’ll cry at a wedding, but then the next day he might have to break the groom’s legs over an unpaid bet.”

What the Fluck is up with Y&R? Total exclusion of Ashbys/Winters/Tucker from ALL GC Events and limiting this Family to one bloody day a week whilst inundating us with worthless shitake about nothing the other four days? Kristoff, Khalil and Goddard are too Gorgeous and talented to waste whilst the OAP (in this instance “Ordinary Arse People”) are crammed down our throats 24/7! Are MAB and Rauch on bad crack? Come back Lynn, Josh and Cherie–PUHLEEZE!

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
