In the video, Michael is reminded of when he helped set up the show during virtual filming due to the pandemic from Kelly's New York home.  But rather than love it, he admitted it really wasn't for him.

Kelly's son Michael loved acting alongside his father in Riverdale 

Kelly then asked: "You didn't enjoy producing us?" and her son revealed he really did not. 

In the live show, Michael then held up his award and laughed along with Kelly and Ryan as the mother-of-three confirmed he won, "for being a smart ass."

While he may not have enjoyed directing and producing LIVE!, he found his calling when acting with his dad on Riverdale last year. 

Kelly and Michael are incredibly proud of all of their children 

He opened up about the experience during a takeover on the CW show's Instagram. 

"Working with dad was really awesome," he said. "We had a lot of fun, we had some great scenes together."

"And it was really trippy because with the mustache he wears, he looks like my real-life grandfather. So it was a weird and surreal experience, but we had the best time."
