Good Morning America
"The Connors" kicked off its fourth season with a live episode, ending with a touching tribute to comedian Norm Macdonald, who died last week at the age of 61 after a long, private battle with cancer. The episode, titled “Trucking Live in Front of a Fully Vaccinated Studio Audience,” began with star and executive producer Sara Gilbert announcing, "Oh, 'The Connors' is live right now in front of a fully vaccinated studio audience," directly to the camera. "Wait, what?" Laurie Metcalf, appearing shocked while also breaking the fourth wall, responded before the two of them joined the opening scene, already in progress.
