Q: I was very sorry to read of the pass­ing of Kristoff St. John. How long was he on “The Young and the Rest­less”? – Ann McCormick, via e-mail

A: He be­gan play­ing Neil Win­ters on the CBS day­time sta­ple in 1991, and his fi­nal episode aired sev­eral days af­ter his death last month. He earned two Day­time Emmy Awards (out of 11 nom­i­na­tions) for the por­trayal, as well as 10 NAACP Im­age Awards. Be­fore that, St. John’s first day­time-se­rial role was Adam Mar­shall on NBC’s “Gen­er­a­tions.” His prime­time cred­its in­cluded “Won­der Woman,” “Roots: The Next Gen­er­a­tions” (as the young Alex Ha­ley), “The Cosby Show,” “A Dif­fer­ent World,” “Hangin’ With Mr. Cooper,” “Fam­ily Mat­ters,” “Martin,” “Liv­ing Sin­gle,” “The Jamie Foxx Show,” “The Nanny” and “Ev­ery­body Hates Chris.”

Q: Is it true that “Mom” might not be back next sea­son? – Joanne Carter, Colum­bus, Ohio

A: Not any­more. Both Al­li­son Jan­ney and Anna Faris were in­volved in con­tract rene­go­ti­a­tions that led some to ques­tion whether the show would be back – par­tic­u­larly af­ter Jan­ney’s “I, Tonya” Os­car win last year – but the ac­tresses reached agree­ments to con­tinue not just for next sea­son, but also for the se­ri­o­comic CBS show’s sea­son af­ter that.
