That should be an emotional and landmark reunion, particularly given the personal lives of many of the FT stars. Fox with his struggle against Parkinson's, Baxter with her revelations, Bonsall with his brushes with the law.

It's always good to see our surrogate "families" come together again.

That's cool. I wish I had the TV Land channel so I could watch. I wonder if TV Land will put it on their website to watch?

Same here...I mean, Tracy will most likely be going along to the show with her husband anyway, so why not let her go onstage? After all, they met on the show!!!!

Michael J. Fox, Michael Gross, Merideth Baxter, Justice Bateman, and Tina Yothers were reunited in 2008 on The Today Show. It would be great if Brian Bonsall, Marc Price, and Scott Valentine, especially were included this time, and Tracy Pollan should be there anyway, since she's Mrs MJF. Courtney Cox, though I would doubt would be included, since she went on to be known more for Friends, and is now on Cougartown. Last we've heard of Bonsall, it seems he was in pretty bad shape, who knows if he would be there??

Family Ties is set to receive the Fan Favorite Award. Michael J. Fox, Meredith Baxter, Michael Gross, Justine Batemen and Tina Yothers will be on hand to accept the award. No word on Brian Eric Bonsall, who played the youngest Keaton, Andy in the later years of the series.

It sounds doubtful that Brian Bonsall will be there. Same for Marc Price, Scott Valentine, and Courtney Cox. I expect Tracey Pollan will be there with her husband though she may not be on stage. (I hope she will be on stage though)

That would be cool if Marc Price showed up as well as Brian Bonsall, but yeah, it's probably doubtful. I would be surprised if Courteney Cox showed up as mentioned above she moved on to star in Friends.

Post Micheal Gross Maintains 'Ties' to Meredith Baxter

Michael Gross maintains 'Ties' to Meredith Baxter
By Jay Bobbin

March 15, 2011 4:12 PM ET
Michael Gross is maintaining his ties to his former TV wife Meredith Baxter, more than 20 years after their shared series run ended.

As Baxter makes the talk-show rounds now -- including a recent appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" -- to promote "Untied," her memoir, "Family Ties" co-star Gross is lending his support. That included his flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, his hometown, to surprise Baxter on "Oprah" as she discussed such matters as her coming out and her allegations of abuse by ex-husband David Birney.

"We stay in constant touch," Gross tells Zap2it of his enduring relationship with Baxter. "We're still very close, and a few months ago, we did a production of 'Love Letters' together. I know someone who runs the arts department at a college and they were looking to do a fundraiser, and I said, 'Let me give my friend Meredith a call.' We like that play, but it's also an excuse to see each other and hang out for a weekend."

Gross says Winfrey's staff called him to contribute to the program on Baxter. "They said, 'You figure pretty prominently in this book as being a great help to Meredith in her time of crisis. Corroborate some of these things. What do you remember?' I started to tell them, and they finally said, 'You know, we're just going to fly you out as a surprise guest.' My father still lives there, so I got to see Dad as well as dear Meredith.

"Her book is not a 'get-even,' by any means," Gross maintains. "It's really Meredith saying, 'This is what I did to myself. Why did I not know who I was?' I inadvertently made her cry [on 'Oprah'] at one point and had to hold her, and that got me crying. While we were in the workplace together, I probably saw her for more hours each day than David did. She's a very private person, but as time went on, I learned more and more when things were so excruciatingly painful for her."

By his account, during the 1982-89 NBC run of "Family Ties", Gross didn't know of Baxter's marital concerns for quite some time: "I tend to assume everybody is doing just fine unless I see otherwise. Unless people choose to share with me, I don't pry, so I don't know."

Seen lately as Ted's father on CBS' "How I Met Your Mother," Gross also has filmed an upcoming episode of HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" as Larry David's dermatologist. He's looking forward to reuniting with Baxter and the rest of his "Family Ties" family -- including Michael J. Fox -- to receive the Fan Favorite Award at the ninth annual TV Land Awards, which that channel televises Sunday, April 17.

Baxter and Gross actually are working together again, as spouses again, on The Hub's animated series "Dan Vs." They voice the parents of the character Elise ... no small irony, since on "Family Ties," Baxter was named Elyse. She and Gross often do their recording sessions together, since he reports, "We're frequently in the same scenes, and they like the chemistry. We still have the best time."

For those who saw the awards show. What did you think of the part with the Family Ties cast?

I loved it. They let all the cast have a turn at speaking. MJF said they have no regrets...that they knew when they were making the show that it was special. Everyone seemed to say how much they enjoyed working on the show. As someone who loved the show it was great seeing them all together again.

I loved that they had Billy Vera sing At This Moment, the love song for Alex and Ellen on the show, that was a hit song in the '80's. The castmembers were very moved.

I also liked when Meredith commented that their cast didn't all turn out "straight" like on Facts of Life.
