ABC executives fear they made a huge mistake when they cancelled this show

27

The Roseanne reboot had a huge comeback to ABC in 2018.

But after the show’s star, Roseanne Barr, made a racially-charged joke, the show was immediately cancelled.

And now ABC’s senior executives fear they made a huge mistake.

After a drug-induced joke went wrong on Twitter, Roseanne Barr’s career was sacrificed to the liberal outrage mob.

Now, Breitbart reports, ABC executives fear they made a major mistake with their knee-jerk reaction.

“We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,” one insider reportedly said. “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

Barr compared Jarrett to if the ‘Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby,” comments that were condemned by Dungey as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.” Yet one insider apparently suggested that ABC should instead have temporarily suspended her before making a final decision.

“The morning the racist tweet scandal blew up, Roseanne offered to publicly apologize and do the rounds of every show but Ben and Channing weren’t having any of that and wanted her gone,” they continued. “Why not have her front a PSA for the network on racism and cyberbullying?”

ABC produced a spinoff, The Connors, which will premiere October 16.

But executives are worried the show will flop, as viewers are more loyal to Roseanne’s character than the network expected.

Roseanne Barr believes she was fired because she voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

As Barr explained, “that is not allowed in Hollywood.”

  1. Roseanne is correct and the ABC executives and Hollywood are so out of touch with every day Americans. I’ll be the first to say that joke was a “bit” tasteless BUT nothing compared to what the liberal left hurl out about anyone who doesn’t have their view point.
    Due to the “double standard” that is constantly used where all the liberal left that go to far can apologize and get a “free pass” but yet Roseanne is immediately fired, the new show is going to FLOP epically. We Americans have a point to prove, I will MOT be watching!’

  2. First of all, there was nothing wrong with Roseanne’s joke – the networks and their hosts say and do much, much worse against our President Trump and Conservatives – so their hypocrisy ‘screams’ in their condemnation of Roseanne. Second, it’s not a habit of the liberal left to make ‘public apologies’, so I see their ‘oh so public regret’ for firing her as an opening to rehiring Roseanne. The public would want it, and from the hidden message in the comment regarding advertisers and cast members, it sounds like they too want Roseanne back. This public display is ABC’s weak apology to Roseanne, which could open the door to discussions with her. Of course, $$$$$$$$ is always the bottom line. IMHO.

  3. That’s what happens when you cave in to these far left radicals who want to run everything. When will you idiots wake up to what is being done to America?

  4. Looks like the Network Bosses did it again. They live in their own little world and make “Drug Induced Decisions”, Humm, where have I heard that before? Then they wonder why they are loosing market share to Netflix and others. They are the ones that need to be fired. If I had a lot of stock in ABC,CBS OR NBC, I would fire them. They are so out of touch with the reality of life, that the drugs and liberalism of their stupid little minds take over and they cancel shows based on their own types pols and fire great actors that just plainly disagree with them. They thing they are Gods and know everything. They never look at the whole picture.

  5. Please let us know how the joke was drug-induced. I didn’t know that. If it wasn’t drug-induced, Roseanne has a suit against the people who wrote this column.
    There was nothing wrong with the joke. Further, Roseane has said she didn’t know Valerie J., and had no idea what color she was.
    Politically correct=common sense incorrect.

  6. Without a doubt, they made a huge mistake and if the new show doesn’t work are they going to fire the idiots that fired Roseanne? I sure hope so!

  7. Everyone knows why Roseanne was fired she supported Trump, ABC couldn’t handle. ABC is 90% Democrat I don’t watch news except weather. I always have watched ABC in past their direction is hurting co but direction is just fine with me.

  8. Rosanne should not have been fired. The view should have been canceled fro bad comments a long time ago. Sandra Bee should have been canceled permanently. Will never watch the Conners . Due to the biased way you treated Rosanne. You should have been sued for unfair treatment or something.

  9. They could bring her back by the family mourning her loss because they miss her so much as she is actually away in a rehab center recooperating away from the family.
    The show so far could show what it would be like had she not survived showing how they would be grieving her loss if she had died and they would be missing her as a result. I will watch if they put her back on. I predict the Connor’s will fizzle without Roseanne . Oh and stop making that little boy from encouraging other kids watching into getting attention by being as wacky as possible by the way they look when they attend school. Kids need to learn all they can to help them in this tough world,not how to be the weirdest kid in class.

  10. One thing is really wrong here..They allow Alec Baldwin make fun and criticize Trump and gets paid a lot of money..Then you have this crazy babe, suppose to look like Marlania, which she doesn’t..Putting that green jacket on in the Oval Office with a Black president is totally tasteless and juvenile..These older folks are far more immature than a 7 year old child..Those people needs to grow the hell up and act like an adult..

  11. Exactly right .A bunch of liberal haters who wear their feelings on their sleeves.They need to just have a good cry and figure it out .

  12. Bring her back. I still ask God to bless her every Tuesday night when my phone alarm reminds me to watch Rosanne. I will leave that alarm set, just in case they want to make their show great again, and bring her back, (Hey Rosie, hold out for more money, cause they need you, or the show will continue to fail.)

  13. ABC, what a crap channel, the only thing I’ve watched on that channel in 20 years was Roseanne, now I don’t even slow down on the way past it. Ahole Bs Communists, time for you to go broke. Valerie Jarrett is mentally exactly where Roseanne put her. She is an Obamaite, an America hating moslem POS. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”, applies to women too. BUILD THE WALL, DEPORT THEM ALL, MAGA, OR ELSE!!!
