It’s been awhile since we have all seen our beloved Michael E. Knight (Ex-Tad, All My Children) on our daytime television screens.  That drought ends next week on The Young and the Restless! 

That’s when Knight makes his return to the soap world in his new role as Dr. Simon Neville, a highly-intelligent and forward-thinking doctor, who is brought in to the canvas by Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John), who is looking for a solution to wake up the unconscious Hilary (Mishael Morgan).  For Neil, his plans have gone so far off the deep, that he now has his accomplice Gwen (Nadine Nicole) to deal with too! She claims says she is doing all of this, because of her love for Neil!

In the latest CBS Daytime promo, the action next week spotlights:  Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) and Adam (Justin Hartley) trying to figure out their relationship, after everyone knows that Adam has been walking among them as Gabriel Bingham for almost a year.  And, then it turns to the network announcing: “Michael E. Knight joins the cast.”  Michael’s first airdate is Thursday October 15th.

Watch the latest promo after the jump welcoming Michael E. Knight to the CBS fold!  Then let us know if you are excited to see him back on daytime, and what you think Dr. Neville will do …  or is capable of?  Will Neil’s plans ultimately backfire on him … yet again?  Comment below!

Suoo, this is frightening to me. I agree with you on this.
Michael E Knight is going to be a sight for sore eyes for sure. In fact, I was looking for him today! I have really missed MEK. I so hope he can find a way to interject humor into his role.
I also agree with you about Chelsea. I cannot stand her and think she is so unworthy of his love.
Now here is affirmation that is all right with the world and that you and I continue to be polarized opposites–I think the only woman for Adam is Sharon.

hey Harry..
I wish Adam would get a dog LOL
I can see Pratt writing Adam and Sage as next couple of interest.
It would put brother against brother and Adams son (baby is his) out of the hands of Victor who will go into kill mode over his grandson being Adams boy that would be big drama..good soap drama ..
((If the baby lives it surely will be Adams..

yup! Adam and Sage= endgame ..

Harry

Why would you want to inflict that simpering, mousy, whiny little fool on Adam.?
Hasn’t he suffered enough for his sins?

I know. I never even think of Chelsea as a beauty. She’s passable. She is adorned to create an okay look. However, a great personality tends to make one overlook average or lack of gorgeous looks, or any physical flaw. Looks aren’t everything. As you say, Harry….Chelsea is whiny….wanting what does not exist….a perfect husband ( well, except for mine. Lol.) She is not what I would call an ideal wife, mother or person, in general.

Timmm

I NEVER liked Chelsea but if Michael Muhney’s Adam wasnt going to be with Sharon, Chelsea and he had some chem. Justin’s version doesnt click at all with Chelsea AND where is the ruthless Adam who always had an angle. This version of Adam walks around like a female cat! Move on already!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Perfect word, Harry. Wholesome….that’s it. Chelsea is wholesome.

CeeCee

Ah, Su…ummm. You need a cold shower. I think you have a case of the fever. I sometimes sing Robert Palmer’s , DOCTOR, DOCTOR. My husband comes running. LOL. But, a fan will work, if Dr. Neville isn’t available.

Timmm

I agree su0000, Michael Muhney must have taken Adam’s testosterone when he cleaned out his dressing room!

Harry

Chelsea has great skin and is very wholesome looking.

Chelsea ruined your life Adam, take Connor and leave the country! I look forward to Dr. Simon Neville

Harry
Harry

WHY is she so mad at him?

Timmm
Timmm

I guess she was tired of being lied too and his Paragon Project mislead her to believe Chelsea 2.0 was a huge hit! I dont know, she should have taken a minute or two to think this through because she still loves Adam and she believes Adam should help her raise Connor.

If you have never seen this dynamic actor before, you are in for quite a treat. I have literally watched every soap over the past 40 years (sans “Passions” — I do have my standards) and have to say that this man is one of the ten best actors I have ever seen.

FINALLY, wonderful news for soap fans.

Harry
Harry

Thank you, Carolina. I do so agree with you.

This is my first with Michael and it seems like everyone on this site is excited about MEK and it makes me anxious! I’m happy for the AMC fans!

Timmm, Tad Martin (Michael) was a very naughty, naughty boy. But his blasé personality….the furor in which he pursued girls, women, ladies, in general, did not turn the audience off. He was a womanizer with a bag of tricks in his repertoire. He used these tricks to the best of his ability….thus, the moniker, Tad the Cad. Something about Michael’s personality, which obviously transmitted into Tad, endeared him to his fans and consequently, was forgiven his antics. He did leave his roguish ways behind, as he grew older….but that mischievousness was ever-present. I hope we will see some of that risqué behavior in Dr. Neville.

Thrilled for MEK to be back on my screen. I’m all for a chem test between MEK and Eileen Davidson. Ashley needs a man and a story.

Timmm

BINGO!

CeeCee

I can’t wait to see ‘Tad’. Yeah, he will always be Tad to me. He still looks so good; so handsome.
TPTB should not have killed Cady off. Imagine if she were still part of the cast? She and Michael could have reunited. If only!!

Timmm

We never saw Kelly’s body! However, it seems she burned all bridges leading back to Y&R.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Well, Timmm. I can’ blame Cady. I thought her talent was wasted on Y&R. She was treated shabbily. However, as an actress for countless years, she ought to have developed a modicum of thick-skin…..she should be more than prepared to receive negative comments/retorts.
None of us should ever burn any bridges. That is the best advice my Dad ever gave me. ” Speak your mind with courtesy and respect; defend your ground with wisdom; and, be compassionate” .
Later.

Timmm
Timmm

Yes, she was crapped on! I liked her alot better than the first Kelly. She should have had thicker skin but who knows unless you are in her skin. I give her the benefit of the doubt. Your dad was/is a very wise man dear Cee!

CeeCee

Thank you, Timmm. I shall tell him. Luv-ya
PS. You’re right. No one knows another’s heart, unless one walks in her/his shoes.

I’m so glad to see Michael E. Knight that I don’t care if he’s just there to read the phone book. He’s my second favorite daytime actor ever (after Van Hansis). I hope t’s not hard to get with the program Y&R. I never did learn all the storylines to GH and had to give up. It’s too busy! But I got into Days easily and I’m leaving since Sonny and now Will are gone. I have that hour free and I’m pleased to put it toward My Michael E. knight!

Gwen is so stupid. He’s using you girl!!!!!!

condittybaby

I think it is safe to say that A LOT of us have tended, or STILL DO tend to do some “stupid things” in the name of love. Whether Gwen’s very own version of her very own love for Neil could be painted as “WRONG”, or not… That’s not the point, like I have read and heard about many others talking about on even other websites with any shenanigans about soap opera’s, just as well. In my opinion at the very least, Gwen isn’t “stupid”. What she is doing — the actions that she are taking, are all in the name of love — as crazy of actions that they may appear to be to the viewing and or to the involved “eyes” and “ears”. To call even a character “stupid” for generally doing roundabout things that sometimes us in “real-lif” do, I don’t think that that is a fair judgement. Yes, I get that doing things like helping someone keep this deep and dark secret from others around them… Or helping someone hide information from the rest of the town… Or withholding actual people from other people (just like what is being done with Hillary, right now) for such of really any amount of time… It can all be looked at as “stupid” and or “dumb” and or “asinine”… And pretty much that would usually all be because what people do, it hurts others. And it actually hurts and affects the masterminds of any “devious plans”, as well. Because at least through what I know and have been through throughout my entire life so far, I know all too well that *KHARMA* usually DOES come back to bite you in the buttocks. At the very least, to me, also known as… “You GET, what you GIVE…” That’s the whole moral story of life anyways, at least in my eyes… If you GIVE your heart out to somebody, you will RECEIVE their heart right back. If you give people good-intended smiles, eventually people will give you good-intended smiles back. If you GIVE the love of your life a lot of pain through infidelity and cheating on them, then you may and or will essentially deal with your very own situation where YOU were the one that will have been cheated on. If you GIVE sadness, sadness will creep back up on you in return sometime and or some day through some futuristic life situation. In this case with what Gwen and Neil are doing, holding Hillary hostage and whatnot. Of course we already know even as viewers what THEY have already done and what THEY are doing right now. There is nothing even we as viewers can change the way any what situation has already taken place amongst all of the camaraderie that IS of Genoa City. And I guess what we have to do, is learn how to ACCEPT that these characters have been and ARE still trapped right in the middle of partaking and or doing all of… Read more »

WOW!!

AHHH!!! This post could have been written by Gwen herself.
What Neal is doing is beyond creepy! It’s something only a very very disturbed person would do. He has also committed at least three felonies and needs to be put in a criminally insane institution.
That Gwen is acting like what Neil is doing is completely understandable and forgivable is CRAZY!!!!! I shudder to think that any woman could possibly relate to Gwen.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Harry.
Harry, that’s what I mentioned too, a few posts ago. Covering up one crime by committing so many more doing it, is worse than the original crime, such a no-side-up-travesty. The travesty is a travesty unto itself.

I hope Michael E Knights character gets together with Jill!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Why? Jill is a virago. MEK is a god. She deserves to be with Colin. I can’t stand Jill. She slept with Jack while married to his father, John. Plus, she’s not sophisticated enough for Neville/Michael.
I do see the newest doctor with Ashley.

Timmm

I think the character of Jill died when Katherine died! Jill couldnt even connect with Tristan Rogers and he is magical! No, keep MEK away from Jill.

Harry
Harry

I agree with Sonja and Timm.

I am glad MEK allowed his hair to go silver. I hate it when these over forty year old men dye their hair monochromatic black or dark brown. (Yes, I am looking at you, Maurice Benard).
I think MEK looks more handsome with the salt and pepper hair and it brings out his beautiful eyes.

Harry
Harry

Opps, meant to write that I agree with Cee Cee and Timm.
Not that it matters, but Jill is in her late sixties and Michael E Knight is in his mid fifties.
I don’t mind an age disparity, however, I do mind it when we’re supposed to pretend that that age disparity does not exist. For instance, Nancy Lee Grahn (GH’s Alexis) is a decade older than her on screen lover played by William deVry (Julian) and it shows. However, we are supposed to believe Alexis is a few years younger than Julian.
I cannot wait until Thursday! MEK—it has been wayyyyyy too long!

He really looks good, much better than a few years ago when he looked unwell.

I also, am very excited that MEK is back on a soap!! Early Xmas present .. Michael made a personal appearance at a home show in my home town in ’92. He was very nice and funny when he spoke to the crowd. Afterwards, he signed autographs for everyone that wanted one. He was very nice to everyone I saw him interact with and talked with each person a bit. He is as good looking in person. I hope Y & R keeps him on and offers him a contract. I have read rumors Sean Carrigan may be leaving , so they may need a Doc.. One can only hope. Can’t wait till Thursday!

I am such a fan, as well, Leslye. Michael has a few movies floating out there, but, my favorite is DATE WITH AN ANGEL. I was much younger when I watched it, but I fell instantly in love. Such a beautiful guy….funny, too.

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

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.
