1. She is a complete idiot about everything but comedy. She does the opposite on purpose all

the time.

As a person I would not want to be in the same room with her at this time, but the show is good.

Laurie is fantastic. If the show for ONE SECOND pushes a lie about the traitor, I am out.

4. I dont watch much TV

So Iím not watching it for that reason. I canít claim any moral reasoning.
I suspect the show wonít be the juggernaut itís being touted to be, with its very unstable star.
Itís interesting, as others have pointed out, that Rosanne actually DOES represent a Trump follower in real life, and the show will make her tone that shit down. The whole situation is bizarre

9. According to almost anybody who is anybody in the world of stand-up she isnt just talented

but one of the best of all time.

Most of those opinions were formed 30 years ago even before the TV show.

No, she is one of the great all time stand-ups, well at least according to EVERYBODY in stand-up but she is very very dumb about everything else

16. Eliot

I see lots of names on that list i find far funnier than Barr, and much further down the list. So, this is strictly subjective.

And having seen a couple of her specials from back in the day, i thought she was funny, but "one of the best of all time" seems overstated, by quite a lot.

18. BUt dont ask me, ask ANY stand up, they are the ones who say this, not me.

I was never a huge fan, but I know personally (my son is in the business) and I have a close friend who is a SAG actor who knows a lot of the big names in comedy from the 70's and 80's and they ALL say this.

This isnt my opinion. I think she was good, but when I heard all of these stories I was also surprised.

For instance did you know most actors think Laurie Metcalf is one of the greatest actors alive?

#13 in that one

And in the category of women, there is simply no question she is in the hierarchy the way Carlin, Pryor and until recently Cosby are.

that puts Rosanne over Dangerfield and Rickles isn't worth the pixels that display it.

They put her right behind Bruce ferchistdake!

Pure donkey droppings.

36. I Too Know 2 in Show Biz

Both have done stand up. Neither had ever mentioned her in those tones.
So, I think we're back to subjectivity
At least we disagree, most agreeably!

Rankings on comedy, or anything having to do with creativity and performance, are highly subjective. Anyway, I get it. You love you some Roseanne. So we'll agree to disagree.

Now you are insulting me.

29. Wow

if Apple07 says it, it must be true.

I notice it's a list of just well known comediennes. And some of them aren't stand ups.

She is far from an all-time great. Very good, yes, but that is about it.

And her disgusting behavior of late more than negates any talent she may have.

Do it "all day long" it just isn't true.

I saw here doing stand up in the 80s. Not great.

31. She is only one of the all time greats according to almost every poll ever done on it and

almost every person in the world of stand up, other than that, no she aint nothing.

I dont even like her much myself, thought her stand up was funny but not earth shattering funny, thought her original show was not that funny but love Laurie and John.

You are NOT arguing with me you are arguing with the world of people who do this for a living and almost every industry poll done on the subject.

I get why you dont like her politics, I dont either.

That is White Supremacy - White Power - White Trash. Light complected people with no socially redeeming values, nothing to contribute to the betterment of society, who only seek to dismantle, degrade, defile, and debase. Refuge - White Refuge - White Trash - if you will so allow.

25. I agree. She is just as crass and vulgar as her beloved Trump.

I never could stand her and I don't see the point in watching her now. I don't really watch much TV anyway, so I am not going to go out of my way to contribute to her ratings.

24. I know about the Nazi baker pics

They are arguing about the context they appeared in on another thread. It seems those pics are ok because they appeared in Heeb magazine nine years ago. I call bs on that. Regardless of how one views those pics, no one can really justify these tweets the same way. She's a deplorable. They should just rename her show "Basket of Deplorables" and be done with it.

I have never watched her in the 80s - or whenever it was - and am not going to watch her now.

And if this makes me an elitist - I will wear this with honor.

but as I've said elsewhere, the show is not just about her. She's rally been a side story thus far.

People really need to dial it down a bit over a tv show.

34. I dont watch much TV

I didnít watch the old show, and find nothing compelling about the new one. What is interesting to me, is these are some of the Tweets she deleted,so as to become more palatable to her audience.

I think as a public person she shouldnít get a pass just because she has a TV show. As far as Iím concerned she expresses the angst of White bigots fairly accurately. I donít give a shit about the angst of white bigots.

raging. So I watched the show to see what all the fuss was about and sorry, I thought it was funny. If anything, Roseanne comes off as the butt of the joke. I like all the other members of the cast so I intend to watch it again.

This certainly has become the latest du poutrage lol.

39. Indeed

I mean, there is a bit of whitewashing going on, Roseanne (the actress) is portraying Roseanne (the character) and Dan as "bigots who mean well" as they try to relate to their grandson who wears what are regarded as women's clothing. But intelligent people, i.e. DU'ers, should be able to easily see through that and resist it.

Even as a guy, I quite identified with Darlene in the original show, and hope the focus remains on her and her kids going forward.

and in past tweets she's called the Parkland survivors Nazis, called Obama a jihadist, tweeted that liberals harvest human adrenal glands for drugs, tweeted that Palestinians keep slaves. She's really a vile human being.

Her handler scrubbed it relatively quickly, but there are screenshots, and the reply tweets are still there.

Shame on anyone supporting this creep by watching her Trump-normalizing show.
