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.

@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.

FAIL !

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?

Shay

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.

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!

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!

Jacob Young Offers Up Thoughts On Rick and Maya’s Split On The Bold and the Beautiful

As fans of CBS Daytime’s The Bold and the Beautiful know, Daytime Emmy-winner Jacob Young (Rick Forrester) has been off the canvas for some time, and the actor had gone on recurring status with the series.

Young has been busy with other projects involving acting roles, his You Tube show, and music career, but certainly is open to a return to the soap opera.

But after the cover of this week’s Soap Opera Digest hit newsstands; which indicates that Rick and Maya have split with the return on-air of Karla Mosley (Maya) (who had been off the show for maternity leave), it clearly looks like the show is moving in a different direction.

Jacob took to Twitter to offer up his feelings on the matter tweeting: “I for one am incredibly sad and disappointed. Rick and Maya have split. (Love that would never die) I loved working with Karla Mosley.  it has been the highlight of my 21 year career in daytime. TRUST ME when I say your opinion matters.”

Since that posting, fans of the couple known as #Raya, have been voicing their thoughts and sharing photos of the on-screen duo.  Young responded to one in particular saying, “Who remembers this? Gosh, I miss Maya.”  In it,the posting read: “This is heartbreaking, Raya was the only example of what true love looks like on that soap!”

Previously, B&B has told the emotional and socially-relevant love story of a transgender woman falling in love with one of the men of the wealthy and renowned Forrester family.

So, what do you think of Jacob’s comments?  Do you want Rick back on the canvas?  What should then happen next for Maya with no Rick?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
