The timing of this is interesting. When I have watched a video of a Paley Center discussion with another daytime show, the representatives from the show have included long time cast members AND producers or writers. It is interesting to me that the list here includes ONLY cast members and no one behind the camera. Obviously, it would be odd to include Maria Arena Bell or the Hamner man as a panelist in light of what has happened in the past week. Likewise, it would be strange to include the Phelps woman or anyone else who is just coming back to work on the show.

I wonder if anyone will attempt to discuss the quality of the writing over the past few years? The show really has been in a state of turmoil and download decline since Bill Bell left. I wonder if they will discuss the state of this show over the past few years or just limit the entire thing to a “salute to Bill Bell”? Bell clearly should be mentioned but failing to address anything from the recent past would seem a little dishonest.

Bill Bell didn’t leave, honey – he died of Alzheimers in 2005. He retired in the late 1990s – the show was running very smoothly up until the mid-2000s when Lynn Marie Latham came on board as a consultant, then as Head Writer & Executive Producer. Her reign of terror (canning longtime writers and producers) ended in late 2007 whe she was terminated due to her striking during the 2007/2008 Writer’s Strike, but she wasn’t officially fired until Feb 2008. Then we got Maria Arena Bell, who also wore the double “Head Writer/Executive Producer” hat. We know what has happened since, so we don’t need to go there.

Now that “Y & R” has a separate Executive Producer and sole Head Writer, let’s hope they can whip this show back into shape – from what I see coming up this week, is it any wonder MAB was canned???

This is great news. Y&R surely can creatively regain its footing. As the #1 daytime drama, it can afford to make changes without as much risk as a low-rated program. And too many people want to see success here. It would be good to see on the dais some of those who may no longer be part fothe program but were instrumental in its initial success along with the stars of today. Best of luck! When is the 10,000th episode?

I appreciate the aesthetics of Young and the Restless so much; the sumptuous sets, lighting and upstage flowers, etc…. but would secretly love more location shooting. I’ve always loved that about B&B, seems to add a bit more immediacy and authenticity to the scene. I hope that it something they can integrate, while still maintaining all that is gloriously over the top and fab about Y&R. 🙂

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.
