As fans of director and actress Kimberly McCullough know, earlier this week she announced that she would be directing an episode of the the re=branded and renamed ‘Rosanne-less’ series, The Conners.  She originally shared the news of getting the nod to direct the hit comedy sitcom with a photo of the famous Conner kitchen with the words “Yup”.

However on Saturday, Kimberly shared some more behind the scenes photos from tape night, or show night, as they call it in the biz.   She is pictured above with cast members Michael Fishman and Maya Lynne Robinson.

ABC executive Nathan Varni tweeted to McCullough: “Thanks for a great week ⁦⁩ directing ⁦⁩ #107! See you soon for your next episode”

No airdate has been released as to when Kimberly’s ‘The Conners” directorial debut will air, but MF TV will keep you posted.

McCullough was also busy directing an episode of the new FOX sitcom, The Cool Kids just the other week.

How fabulous that the woman who has brought General Hospital’s Robin Scorpio Drake to life is finding just as much success now behind the camera as in front of it.

Will you be checking out Kimberly’s episode of The Conners when it airs?  Do you hope that between all of these directing gigs, she might fit in a visit back to GH? Share your thoughts below.

She clearly has a terrific relationship with ABC – directing on various shows and showing up on GH occasionally. So happy for her and glad that Robin is still alive and a presence in Port Charles.

I love “The Connors” and I love Kimberly. What more can I ask for? This episode is going to be perfect.

Good for Kimberly that her branching out into directing has proven to be successful. She is a real go-getter. And we know she’s always welcome back to GH as the beloved Robin.

poor abc and there garbage lineup are people watching the conners

That is so cool! Glad to see Kim is fulfilling her dreams!

@Timmm….Yes, to Kim fulfilling her dreams, but unfortunately it’s for this ABC flop of a Roseanne-less revenge reboot

Yes Shayster, a huge hole. There just is no middle without her. All the characters are decent but everything always ended up in Roseann’s lap and now the characters have nowhere to turn to. In other words, I think it is still well written but there just is no big giant meaningful hug at the end!

There is absolutely nothing that Kimberly McCullough could do to make the Cornners watchable, it really stinks, bad..
Really, it is horrible..

without Roseanne, there is no family of quality.


The ratings are okay BUT once they have something new they want to push, its gone for good!

Not only that, Timmm, but there was no need to be so vindictive to the beloved eponymous character by killing her off, especially in such an insidious manner! It would have been far more humane to come up with a whimsical, less permanent, means of explaining her absence and leaving an opportunity for her possible return down the road. (Now it can only be as an apparition, and there is probably little chance anyway….) For example, I think Roseanne should have gone M.I.A. whilst attending a Trump rally…to be later revealed she had actually met and experienced a newfound happiness with a MAGA family in need of a loving mom whose life was much less stressful and fractious than that found within the confines of The Conners! Would. have made a great spinoff, too!!!!!!!!

I’ve been watching the Conners and will continue. I love Kimberly as Robin on GH.

Nope–won’t be watching that unfunny sitcom. Roseanne should have never been fired after her explanation and apology.

Alec Baldwin screws up all the time and he has gotten 4th and 5th chances! Not Roseanne! Double standard. Where is the outrage?

Not to mention the fact that Baldwin actually broke the law by causing bodily harm to another human being, as opposed to Roseanne merely exercised her freedom of speech with an ill-chosen remark where nobody was physically hurt…that’s beyond a double standard! It’s a totally disproportionate reaction to one situation when the latter was far more serious, yet with apparently fewer punitive consequences. Baldwin’s ridiculous talkshow is still airing, albeit now in the deadzone Saturday night timeslot, whilst Roseanne’s character is dead and buried.

Oh yeah, look at Bill Maher, he continues to get in trouble and his ass is still employed! Why? How about his latest attack on Stan Lee? Stan Lee had more talent in his pinky than Maher has in his whole hateful body!

Bill and his big mouth have been dodging bullets forever! Of course, ABC canned his late night show after one too many of his controversial comments, although by today’s standards, it was quite mild compared to the remarks he has recently offered up!!! Oh well, just another Hollyweird-o to ignore…they really do come a dime a dozen these days!!!! Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving, Timmm!.

Shay, Happy Thanksgiving to you and lets all Make GH, Y&R and America Great Again!

Thank you and amen to that, Timmm!!! The dream remains alive, although I’m also extending greetings for a Happy Thanksgiving to those friends of ours at MFTV who do not share our particular vision…especially longtime regulars James, Harry, Rose, Su and Patrick, whose posts I still often enjoy despite our sometimes differences of opinion. Each one offers an individual perspective that makes their contributions interesting, special and unique, so I am appreciative for their continued presence here and wish for them a peaceful, lovely Thanksgiving weekend and holiday season.

You can be a riot – instant laugh out loud

Thank you Ms. Shay .. all around Salute

Right back at you, Patrick!!!!! I meant every word! Despite the more recent emphasis upon “current events,” I fondly recall our previous years at MFSoaps when the aforementioned “cast of characters” never failed to make my day with their immense humor, talent, intelligence and often, ruthlessly accurate observations regarding all things soaps and then some! I’ve often missed those highly amusing times, but still consider your posts to be must-reads written by truly indispensible people that I quite simply like regardless of our differences! Happy Holidays!
