The Roseanne revival continues to gather pace, with ABC to listen to pitches for a potential spinoff minus its disgraced lead and former head writer, per THR:
Multiple sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the Disney-owned network is open to potential spinoff ideas with a catch: they have to be without Roseanne Barr and the actress and former head writer of the sitcom would not be able to financially benefit from any new incarnation of the series. A meeting about potential ways to continue TV’s No. 1 show is expected to be held next week, sources say.
Would you watch Roseanne without Roseanne? What kind of Roseanne spinoff would you want? Stay tuned for continued updates on the revival/spinoff status of Roseanne…
Nope. Not a chance. I think she was prematurely fired. I don’t think she was making fun of her race, but her looks, her facial features. Comparing her to a weird looking ape like mask. Let’s face it, the Planet of the Apes are a little strange looking. Which wasn’t right either, but not a race thing. Liberals are so quick to cry racism. What about freedom of speech? Oh, I forgot, only the View and anyone bashing Pres. Trump have that.
The show without Roseanne won’t fly for me. Roseanne is the show. I agree with the comment above from Shirley. The punishment was too harsh. Roseanne didn’t make the comment on the show.
