Once again, Days gets robbed. Whatever.

Too funny I mean if you were a new viewer you would not even know Maya was a transgender this is why these awards have become meaningless.

I still don’t get the win for this show. Once again, Maya is underutilized, so what is the win based on? Just sayings

I was thinking the same thing. Once the truth was told, her character, not to mention her whole immediate family was pushed aside so they could once again focus on what I call the “usuals and rehash the same topics over and over again

Confusing at best – unless the award is for most complete dropping of an LGBTQ character and story line. There is still a lot of story to tell here, but the subject will likely not be revisited unless Liam decides to undergo gender reassignment and pursues a lesbian triangle with Hope and Steffy…

That is hysterical. They sure do drop characters and storylines instantly and move on to triangle after triangle. I wish they would have kept Spectra’s Saul and had him as a gay character. I adored him and he would have been excellent working at Forrester since Spectra is dead-at least for now.

Days is more diverse. B&B fashion industry with all straight folks. Not to mention white

As an openly gay man, this offends me. I mean…Maya has hardly been onscreen lately. I don’t get it. Not buying it. Nope.

James…as always, thanks for the backup, Brother!!!!! Much, much appreciated.

Later, Brother.

With Jacob Young now recurring, I think we won’t be seeing much of Maya, unless they pair her with Carter. This show needs diversity and a production team that can think beyond Brooke, Ridge, Bill, Liam, Steffy, Hope, Wyatt and Katie. They have very capable actors on the backburner. Give us a story to deserve this award.

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.
