New Y&R Promo Announces Michael E. Knight's Debut Next Week!

Courtesy/CBS

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… Read more »

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 ..

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.

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!

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

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.

WHY is she so mad at him?

Timmm
Guest

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.

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… Read more »

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!!

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

CeeCee
Guest
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
Guest

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!

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!

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… Read more »

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.

@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

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

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
Guest

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… Read more »

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 ,… Read more »

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.

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
