Feb. 8 (UPI) -- Stars of The Conners will appear as their sitcom characters and comment on nominees and winners during a commercial break for the ABC telecast of the Oscars ceremony Sunday.
"TheConners are going LIVE during the #Oscars in honor of #TheConnersLive on Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC!" the show's Twitter feed said Friday.
Cast members will discuss memorable moments from the high-profile prize presentation in real time.
"We'll know within a minute or so of the live promo happening what the last award or few awards were and if anything was interesting about them," Conners show-runner Bruce Helford told Variety. "We'll write something or the cast will chime in and say, 'Oh I want to say this.'"
The segment is intended to promote Tuesday's planned live episode of the show, which will incorporate the characters' responses to the New Hampshire presidential primary.
