Now Roberts and Norton asked her if any thought occurred about going away after The Brady Bunch finished its run.
McCormick said, “I have never really had that. I have always just really loved what I’m doing.” Yet McCormick knew that after being on “The Brady Bunch” show business was for her.

McCormick grew up on TV and admired “the Carol Burnetts, the Lucille Balls, the Mary Tyler Moores, and the Dick Van Dykes.”
“It is something I have always been really passionate about,” she said. “I always want to be better, push myself, and try new things.”
