You won’t believe what happened because ABC executives canned Roseanne Barr

64

ABC stepped in it when they fired Roseanne Barr.

They bent the knee to the PC Police and their viewers responded.

And you won’t believe what happened as a result.

ABC’s “Roseanne” made a comeback in 2018.

The first episode of season 10, released in late March, garnered an impressive 18 million viewers.

Nine episodes later, it was 10 million viewers strong.

Despite high viewership, ABC cancelled the reboot and fired Roseanne Barr over the PC Police’s outrage over a controversial tweet.

As we reported, ABC realized it was a major mistake and tried to backpeddle their decision.

Realizing their fate, they scrambled to win back their angered “Roseanne” fanbase by making a spinoff titled “The Connors.”

The show is flopping.

It was the lowest rated television serial for the week of October 26.

And it also had the smallest audience share, even in their key demographic.

ABC executives thought they could kill off the beloved main character of their top sitcom and still rake in the ratings.

But the damage was done.

The fans are not pleased.

Showbiz 411 reports:

“The Conners” dropped in everything last night–total viewers, key demo. In the nightly ratings battle. the “Roseanne” spin off continues to trend downward.

Last night, “The Conners” was beaten by everything- “NCIS,” “The Voice,” etc. This was their first really objective run, no World Series, nothing to distract potential viewers.

But the key demo sank, which isn’t a good sign. And the total viewers were down by 180K, which is a lot, frankly. People are leaving and they’re not coming back.

Do you think ABC should have fired Roseanne Barr and cancelled hit show “Roseanne”?

  1. I wish I could understand why there were 4% that voted to maintain illegal immigration, I wonder if they are that misguided or they just do not belong here there is plenty of space in Canada or Alaska or Russia or one of the wonderful free countries that we see in the new on a regular basis! Go for the gusto.

    • The OVER-REACTING BY THE PUBLIC IS GETTING SICKENING! IT SEEMS LIKE THOSE PEOPLE ARE JUST LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO CRUCIFY, AND ROSEANNE BECAME THE NEWEST TARGET! SHE VERY HUMBLY APOLOGIZED, BUT THAT IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THOSE THAT ARE SITTING IN THE “JOHN” AND LICKING THEIR CHOPS WHEN SOMEONE ERRS!! THE NEWS MEDIA HAS ENHANCED THIS A THOUSAND FOLD, BY MAKING EVEN THE TINIEST ERROR A MAJOR ISSUE, AND THE PUBLIC GETS “SUCKED-IN” TO THIS CRAP!!! UNFORTUNATELY, WE GET A KICK OUT OF PEOPLE”S MISERY, AND THE NEWS MEDIA MAKES BILLIONS EACH YEAR FROM OUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS JUNK!! WHAT WAS EXPOSED IN THE JUSTICE KAVANAUGH HEARING WAS A VERY TELLING EXAMPLE OF JUST HOW CORRUPT OUR POLITICIANS HAVE BECOME………”DR” FORD WAS EXPOSED TO THE PUBLIC, ( EVEN AFTER DEMANDING THAT SHE REMAIN ANONYMOUS, AND BEING GIVEN THE “PROMISE” BY MS. FEINSTEIN THAT SHE WOULD “GUARANTEE” HER THAT VERY THING! THE PUBLIC SPECTABLE THAT WAS MADE OF HER AND HER LIES PUT EVERYONE ON ALERT TO HER ROLE IN THIS THEATRICAL FARCE, AND SHOWED MS. FEINSTEIN FOR EXACTLY HOW DISHONEST AND HOW LOW SHE WILL STOOP TO GET HER WAY!!! TOO BAD LADY, YOUR GOOSE GOT COOKED WAY BEFORE THANKSGIVING! NOW THIS DIZZY GROUP OF SORE-LOSERS ARE GOING TO PURSUE THEIR IGNORANCE AND TRY TO REMOVE PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JUSTICE KAVANAUGH BY “DE-THRONEING THEM BOTH!! IT SEEMS THAT THE DEMOCRAPS HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT THEY WERE PUT IN OFFICE TO DO GOVERNING, AND NOT FOR USING MILLIONS OF TAX DOLLARS TO REMOVE A PRESIDENT THAT HAS TURNED AMERICA AROUND, HAS DECREASED THE DEMAND FOR ASSISTANCE IN A FANTASTIC AMOUNT, AND HAS A LARGER WORK-FORCE THAN EVER IN OUR HISTORY! THIS IS WHO THEY WOULD REMOVE FROM HIS JOB??? ANOTHER REALLY SMART GOAL FOR THE DEMOCRAPS, AND THEY WOULD REMOVE THE BEST JUDGE FROM THE GRAND JURY, BECAUSE THEY WANT A DIFFERENT ONE IN OFFICE. IF THEY ARE INTELLIGENT ENOUGH, THEY WILL REALIZE THAT OPENINGS ARE COMING, AND THEY CAN HAVE ANOTHER SHOT AT KEEPING THE BALANCE THAT THEY WANT IN THE GRAND JURY!!! WHAT THEY DID TO THIS FINE MAN, HIS WIFE, HIS TWO DAUGHTERS, HIS PARENTS, AND THEIR ENTIRE COMMUNITY IS TOTALLY DISGRACEFUL AND INEXCUSABLE AND THEY SHOULD BE KICKED OUT OF THEIR JOBS FOR THIS EVIL CONTEMPTIBLE, ROTTEN ATTEMPT!!!!!,,,FORTUNATELY, THE MOST EVIL ARE IN THE DECEMBER YEARS OF THEIR LIVES, AND WON’T BE AROUND TO MAKE PEOPLES LIVES DIFFICULT VERY LONG!!!

  2. Political correctness and the extreme use of it will destroy this country. The left is hell bent on the destruction of our way of life. The youth in this country have been fed a steady diet of victimhood and being offended. Wake up America. Vote each and every democrat out of office and save America and your children.

  3. HEIL HITLARY!!! The network boys can now create ANOTHER FLU-A-DUB show that features our illustrious former First Lady and Secretary of State in what SHOULD SOON BE her daily environment for about 10 years. The show could be titled “MY LIFE IN AN INTERNATIONAL ORANGE JUMPSUIT”. She and her so called “hubby” (or is that FIRST PHILANDERER???) have been involved in so much criminal activity for which they were NEVER brought to justice for such actions. I pray that the American people are sane enough to ensure that she and her hubby go off into the political sunset of our beloved homeland.

  4. I do not think ABC should have cancelled Roseanne and fired Roseanne. Roseanne was the show, so without her, there really is no show. What they should have done was left her on the show, and let the viewers decide if they wanted to continue to see her or not. Now, they will just have a show that will gradually sink to the bottom. I can’t watch The Connors. It just seems wrong on so many levels, and I don’t see it as funny…just sad.

  5. Roseanne Barr should never have been fired in the first place. ABC really messed up! It absolutely disgusts me that the likes of Joy Behar, Whoppi Goldberg, Morning Joe and Mika, (who cares what their real names are), etc… can say whatever they want to disparage our President and his supporters, and not a damn thing is done to them. They are not cancelled, they are not reprimanded…It only seems to be an issue if a Republican says something the whining Leftists don’t like. I have personally written ABC off completely, unless they turn this around and do the right thing! Hire Roseanne back, and I don’t care what it takes to get it done, just do it!

  6. I agree with what Suzanne states. ABC really blew off a great show because of PC, BS. We no longer watch ABC anymore. ABCSports sucks also.

  7. How can Roseanne’s remark be racist if she didn’t know Valarie J was black? When I first read her tweet, I said to my husband, “I didn’t know Valerie J was black.” And then came her follow up saying the same thing. Shame on ABC for not giving her the benefit of the doubt. Whoever fired her should be the one(s) to get fired. As long as ABC continues to air The View, anybody should be able to get away with just about anything. There is nothing on television more offensive than Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg. If you want to fire someone for cause, fire them. They give you good reason every day, every show!

    • Have not watched the view, ever on a regular basis, only to start looking at it and within a few minutes, turning the channel!! They are all hateful, vile, and disgusting! Now ABC is getting so liberal, I am totally done with them too, they just cut their own throat when they fired Roseanne!! They deserve it too!!

  8. What do you expect from the Anti-American Broadcasting Corporation. Only Liberals on the View can say anything and not get fired.

  9. As Long as Hollywood, the Mainstream Media, TV and news Network Keep Blaming our President Donald Trump for everything and Constantly Critisizing Him and Disrespecting Him and His Family as well as his followers, I for one will not even watch NBC, ABC or CBS and certainly not CNN ( Communist News Network ) !! They all need to go back to the Good Old Days, ( Provide Entertainment and Accurately Reporting the News )

    • I don’t believe nbc or abc as well as cnn know how to report any truth. We only watch cbs when certain programs are on that my husband likes. Other than that NIX on all of them.

  10. Sounds like “The Conners” will be going bye, bye…soon. How does that make you feel ABC? Maybe a little knot in the stomach. You’re deserving.

  11. The PC police may scream the loudest but they hardly represent the majority! There is little hope for MS networks that are completely left of center & propaganda machines for the dimwits.

  12. No, Rosanne should never have been fired. The ladies of the View, have said much worse and still do. Sandra Bee said a terrible thing and is still on. I am glad that the show is failing. It serves them right.

  13. I never watch any of the channels that are called mainstream,haven’t in years. I only see clips of some of the outrageous things the do when Hannity or Carlson show them. Those few times are even too much,I can’t believe the stations let Goldberg or Behar lie like they do. Those times I saw them I was offended by what Behar said about our Pres,all of it was made up. If those people want to take off others they should start with those two.

  14. AS to ABC exec’s, it couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of intolerant Idiots!
    AS to the other cast members of “The Connors”, were they still Bound by the contracts of the Cancelled “edition” of the show, OR did they have NO “backbone” when it came to supporting a woman who MADE Them Famous?

    • Then why in the hell do you watch it. Hannity and Dobbs spew dumb conspiracy theories I have heard, but I don’t watch them and my life is better for that. Joe, you ever heard of a channel changer and/or a “remote control?” Bitch, moan, loath and whine, the lifestyle of Trumpers.

      • Well Well, truth is important, eh????? Apparently you listen to all the garbage that those alphabet channels spew out. It doesn’t sound like truth is for you. Lies, lies & more lies from those channels. Many prayers for you that one day you will finally see or seek the truth!!!!! The lifestyle of Trump followers is the TRUTH.

  15. The News Media and most of liberal Hollywood are in Lucifer’s pocket. He owns them. The few conservatives in Hollywood are ignored by Satan’s Mouth Piece. The FCC, the FBI, and the DOJ, have given the Democrats immunity from prosecution. They are all in lock step and should be on our Public Enemy List.

    • And I suppose, Floyd, that Roseanne Barr represented a sweet angel of “da Lord” that Lucifer wanted to silence!?! Duh! IF you were really the representatives of holiness, why are your words so filled with loathing, moaning and vilifying others?!? REAL spiritual giants, saints, do not spend their time telling others who is in “Lucifer’s pocket” or how people who disagree with them are Satan’s mouthpiece. The great ones, and they do exist in every generation, spend their time expressing the kindness and encouragement to others – – – not like the Pharisees who were “holier-than-thou” and judged everyone else.

  16. Well they’re finding out what it’s like to follow the PC crowd and allow them to make their decisions for them, versus listening to their viewers. But, what else have we come to expect from the far left leaning Big 5, enjoy the sinking ratings you did it to yourselves.

  17. ABC’s snowflakery and knee-jerk PC reaction do not surprise me. Two things do surprise me:

    1. Why are the executives who made the decision not already fired, and

    2. Why hasn’t Rosanne started a new show of a similar format on another network?

  18. We hear our President getting trashed everyday and no firings. Roseanne didn’t say anything near as bad. It was stupid to fire the star of a show that was doing so well. No, we are done watching. Could hire her back and make it seem like she was dreaming, and then she would get the operation.

  19. It wasn’t so much what Roseann said. It was the fact she is a Republican and voted for Donald Trump and they were looking for a way to fire her for something. Well I for one am proud of Roseann for not bending to their rules. In America we are allowed to have an opinion of our own. What she said was wrong and she admitted it was wrong. But they made like it was the SIN OF THE CENTRY. JUST AN EXCUSE TO FIRE HER. THANK YOU ROSEANN FOR STANDING UP FOR YOUR VALUES. THAT SHOW IS NOTHING WITHOUT YOU AND IT WILL BE A FLOP. KEEP SUPPORT DONALD TRUMP HE IS THE BEST WE HAVE HAD FOR MANY YEARS. AS FOR “THE VIEW” I WOULD NEVER WATCH THEM AGAIN AFTER THE WAY JUDGE JEANINE PIRRO WAS TREATED ON THEIR SHOW. SHE WAS INVITED ON THE SHOW AS A GUEST. PROMOTING HER BOOK WHEN WOOPIE STARTED CUSSING HER OUT GOT UP AND CHASED HER OUT OF THE BUILDING YELLING GET THE F–K OUT OF THIS BUILDING. I SEE WOOPIE IS STILL ON THE VIEW. I WILL NEVER WATCH THAT SHOW. THEY ARE ALL JUST A BUNCH OF HATEFUL TRUMP HATERS.

  20. If the third grader that heads ABC want ONLY idiots to watch their programing then just keep doing the stupid political correctness crap! I haven’t watched their fake news for years now.

  21. ABC has literally killed the goose that laid the golden egg. I cannot even imagine watching this show with out Roseanne. She was the glue that held every thing together in the show. I am not blaming the cast they have to make a living but it will be short lived as the ratings slump into nothingness. Her rant that made ABC fire her instead of letting Roseanne apologize for this very bad mistake they had to set one of their examples and fire her. Well he who laughs last laughs loudest and I have a feeling it will be Roseanne and not ABC that has had the last laugh.

  22. Bring her back. She was the show. Just restart the show with no explanation, and you will have a good show.
    Those we want to see her don’t care if she died, and no need to say it was a bad dream. Letting her go was a bad move, and it can be corrected, if she agrees to come back.

  23. ABC made a PC lead decision and it cost them dearly!! Good! I now have a good excuse not to ever watch anything they air ever again. I hope another network picks her up. And yes, Valerie Jarett really does look like a ——-l

  24. Personally, I HATED “Roseanne” when it was on the air the first time, and barfed and gagged when they put that horrible woman back on! Have you forgotten how that obnoxious woman bad-mouthed her own FATHER, just to make a name for herself? No, I do not feel sorry for her and wish they would stop putting her on the air! (course, that’s just me.)

    NOT-A-Roseanne-Fan

  25. This POLITICAL is SO INSANE that everyone should be walking on eggshells because said something so insignificant that it has gone so far with the left, “Oh I was offended”, I was hurt. !!!!! Seriously have we become a Nation of complete SISSY’s. Then go back to Mommie…..The left can say, do blast, disrupt, condemn, put down our POTUS, say the most vile, demented, horrific things, and it’s OK!!! But the second anything remotely is said, by the right, then it assassination time. YET, Our President’s, Clinton, Obama, and Bush did the same things, and worst. Here comes a man that gave up the love of his heart. His business, to work for a Country for FREE!!!!! And gets bullied every single second of everyday. Cleaning up the MESS of these past President’s. Gets 3 hrs. per night, and what these late night show idiots is that this Man was elected, with 64 Million votes, so they are in effect shutting out those voters with no thought of the Consequences, or back lash. Roseanne, I knew that listening only to their Hollywood Celebs that are only as good as their last movie, EXecutives on their high horses, did not miss a beat in firing her. NOT once taking into account that it was a mistake that was going to BIT them in the ass. It takes a Businessman to bring this Nation, back to where it should be. Obama was taking more vacations, playing more golf, than any President, & costing the AMerican taxpayer a massive fortune even one bringing their dog on a private jet. Clinton was too busy raping women, while Hillary was busy covering his ass. Bill once said, she has more women than he did. She is bi-sexual. Roseanne is an ICON, and she is human. Remember when you are pointing your finger at anyone, you have 3 pointing back at you. TREAT others as you would want to be treated. CNN wants rtings then treat Our President with R-E_S_P_E_C_T. Exactly what anyone wants. There is NOT one perfect person on the face of this earth. CNN and all of the mainstream MEDIA has been brought & paid for by IDIOTS, MORONS, that have NO clue what the AMerican people want or need. WAKE UP!!!!!! And PLEASE be able to watch TV, without blasting those you know nothing about. NEVER EVER would I have thought that I would LIVE in this day & age, at my age of 77 to listen and watch the DESTRUCTION of this Nation of entitlements by those that are JUDGE & Jury, that only thinks of themselves. ALL of US should be ashamed of ourselves. We OWE an apology to a woman Roseanne who GOD BLESS her made a simple mistake. To a President that could accomplish so much more if he was INSPIRED, and ENCOURAGED by a very IMPERFECT world. GROW UP and WAKE UP to what you could do with LOVE & RESPECT…

  26. FOX should hire Rosanne, give her a weekly show, and call it something like “Raising the Barr”, and without any fairy little boys that wear girl’s clothes or liberal diversity. Real people don’t like that crap shoved down our throats.
