Y&R's Michelle Stafford hosts ACME Saturday Night Photo Gallery!

Over the weekend, The Young and the Restless, Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) took her turn at hosting ACME Saturday Night, the SNL-type sketch comedy sketch show performed with the hilarious ACME comedy troupe.

On-Air On-Soaps was in attendance to see Michelle and we have to report that of all the soap stars that have taken their turn at the hosting chores and as special guest, it was Michelle’s performance that stood tall among all the rest. (And yes, Christian LeBlanc’s is right up there, too).

From her opening monologue where she supposed to be interrupted by an ACME comedy troupe member but isn’t (for awhile anyway), to her turn as an offbeat psychiatrist who while in session with her patient is prone to bursts of phrases like, “OMG”, to playing one-half of a deadbeat couple who are so bored with each other they try to come up with banal conversation, to a turn as “herself” on a Oprah-like talk show where the host tries to get her to name the biological father of her baby, Michelle played it all to the hilt with an infectious delivery, humor, and yet sparks of realism that made it completely relatable to the audience.

The ACME house was packed on Saturday night with many soap stars in attendance to cheer on Michelle including her castmates, Christian LeBlanc, Christel Khalil, Michael Muhney and Peter Bergman.  The Bay’s Lilly Melgar, and DAYS Arianne Zuker with husband, Kyle Lowder,  and Mark Hapka also were there.  The musical trio of Chalk FarM was the musical guest and performed two songs, one which we can’t get out of her head and loved called, Lie on Lie.

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.
