ABC has responded. The network has cancelled Roseanne after one revived season, and ten in total, in response to Roseanne Barr‘s racist tweet.
ABC chief Channing Dungey said:
“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
Statement by Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment:

Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.

Prior to today’s turnaround, Roseanne was renewed for Season 11 (second revived season) to premiere this fall.
The reaper has now buried the show without ceremony. No RIP.
Will Roseanne‘s reversal open up space for one of ABC’s previously-cancelled sitcoms/shows? Stay tuned…

here we come fox?
show had buzz but content and delivery was weak.
only the president trump can tweet like that and get away with it.
Fox will probably put her on right next to the failed Tim Allen propaganda show. Better yet they should air both of them on Sunday morning so they can present them accurately as “religious programming”.
That religion being the worship of a fascist orange asshole, naturally.
Karen Crayk says
Nope, Roseanne doesn’t own the rights to this show.. So she can’t take it anywhere.. Only ABC can revive it and I am hoping they kill her off and start a new show called “The Conner’s”
Looks like you got your wish!
Not even Roseanne Barr is above ABC but there was a episode related to racism but it was script written
Yeah, but no one says anything bad about others showing the president beheaded and dead. Or the totally disrespectful comments made about President Trump’s family. ABC is a low grade network anyways, all of their shows have a “National Enquirer” feel to them. Just junk really. Won’t be hard to boycott this network entirely.
Really, what planet do you live on? Racism is NEVER on the table and Kathy Griffin’s career is just getting back on track after her little stunt. Were you this outraged when the Obamas were shown as apes living in the jungle. Enjoy the last 2 years of your Idiot-n-Chief’s presidency.
American Hero says
You spelled “6 years” wrong… and the idiot-n-Chief was in office the previous 8.
Thankfully, his anti-American agenda and legacy has been all but wiped out. Btw, enjoy the next 30 years of a Conservative leaning Supreme Court.

I like the way ABC says”inconsistent with our values”. ABC you have no honest values. Your are just a pile of lefty’s bent on destroying this country.
Your orange hero rounds up little children like animals and separates them from their families. You probably should quit while you’re behind and just shut the fuck up.
Oh yeah…. Charles Krauthammer says HELLo!
I’d tell the Trumpsuckers that their hero is the Antichrist. After all his true name is Donald (6) Johann (6) Drumpf (6) and orange certainly is not a normal skin color for a human being.
But of course that isn’t possible. Because the Antichrist will be the son of Satan… and oh for Hell’s sake have you ever seen a picture of Trump’s mother??? Let’s just say he got his ideas in creative hairpiece designs from her.
No way I was EVER drunk enough to hit THAT!!
We have turned into a nation of people just waiting to be offended. It’s gotten ridiculous. People say things all the time without thinking first – then realize that what they said may be offensive to someone and apologize for it. It happens every day. Cancelling a good show for such a thoughtless remark is above and beyond the punishment it should have received. It’s ok for Robert DiNiro to say “F Trump” on live TV but not ok for Rosanne Barr to say what she said? There’s a real double standard going on in our world today. If you’re going to dish it out, you’d better learn how to take it. Disgusting.
TRUMP offends ppl on a daily bases He’s a pig and a moron. And idk about anyone else. But seriously should the president of the United States really b tweeting?????? Does anyone think this is f up???? Like tweeting. He’s an idiot. This show was great. Ppl need to get thicker skin. And should all the ppl that are in the public eye that made fun of rosanne for her weight through the yrs…. Where they punished??????
