Representing the liberal side as wacky, shouting, out of control, while Trumper Roseanne sits there calmly responding logically. Totally opposite of the real world, but intentional propaganda.

O' Reilly already came out and said they had to fire her, as did James Murdoch
There will be some, but it will likely gather less steam then it otherwise would have because some in the Conservo-Nut-O-Sphere are backing ABC on this

Though with Shill O' Liellly, I still think he's trying to get back on TV

ABC did not take this action in order to eventually do harm to a racist bigot.

88. Yes, but only if there's no real risk to reputation or value.

This is going to cost ABC a lot of money. Most of the cast members were little-known when the first iteration of the show came out, but many of them are big-name now and would have commanded serious compensation. There won't be any return from syndication, and a lot of advertising dollars have disappeared.

hit them financially as well as bring down the wrath of the craziest rightwing fans, and probably provoke Trump into another twitter rage against ABC/Disney.

I'm sure, because of past boycotts, etc., ABC knew that this was going to be a big zero and millions of people would boycott their sponsors. It wasn't done out of any noble reasons.

Having said that, I still give them kudos for doing it so quickly.

So they'll largely land fine - unless the stink of all of this rubs off on them in a big way.

It's the crew side where it really hits the most.

45. Likely had a morality clause.

ABC probably cancelled because if each actor started dropping out one by one because of the morality clause, they would have to pay big bucks (remember, they had renewed it already for a Season 2).

ABC lost a shitload of money on this venture.

(IMO) is bring back the show with all the actors and characters except Roseanne has died. Eventually Dan will remarry to a flaming liberal.

and replace Roseanne with Rosie O'Donnell playing Roseanne Conner, ala the two Becky's or the two Darrin's on Bewitched.

Having someone else play her role would really screw her head over.

116. Sounds like a plan to me. They can all weep over her grave, complain about the cost of funerals...

...have a wake and remember the good times and the bad, and get on with their TV lives.

Dan can remain a widower, and the family can continue to squabble and pull together. They don't need a flaming liberal in the lead role, really. I think John Goodman could carry this show.

40. If this is true...

... (and I have no reason to believe itís not other than it is a little out of character and very swift), it explains her apology. Iím sure she got word that ABC was considering this and she rushed out an apology to try and save her ass. Otherwise I doubt she would have backed up at all.

~70% of the American public don't support the behavior of the current Resident. The problem is that enough GOP members of Congress are beholden to donors that don't care as long as they got theirs.

One thing that many people miss is that IQ is rated on a relative scale with 100 being the average. A fairly high portion of the 30% that claim to support Trump have a Lake Woebegone notion that they are all above average.

96. Paula Deen has had a significantly different track record

She apologized, she was honest about her ugly language in the past, and she had an established track record for inclusive hiring.

The point isn't to eternally punish everyone who's ever done or said something wrong in the past. The need is to heal the causes and effects of our history of racism and do better in the future. As Jimmy Carter said:

"She was maybe excessively honest in saying that she had in the past, 30 years ago, used this terrible word," Carter told CNN's Suzanne Malveaux in an interview Friday. "I think she has been punished, perhaps overly severely, for her honesty in admitting it and for the use of the word in the distant past. She's apologized profusely."


We have to live in world where redemption is possible, or hope for healing and repairing past damages is going to be impossible.

This is what washed-up movie stars and entertainers do to stay in the media. They say and do outrageous crap to get attention. This reboot was going off the air anyway due to low ratings. Rosanne is looking for a spot on foxnews. Remember Dennis Miller who went from comedian, then after his career tanked he went to sports, then when that failed, he jumped on the conservative BS and found a home on foxnews and conservative talk radio. Some go into porn, others go to foxnews.

172. Welcome to DU, j316usa.

Maybe some outfit with a twisted worldview like that of Pox Noise will offer her a haven at some point. I can't think of anywhere else where her brand would be welcome at this point. Her career is in the deep freeze, at least for awhile. If she had left it at the initial apology tweet and not followed it up with lame comments and trying to blame Ambien, it might have helped a little. But I saw quite a difference between the apology tweet and her later comments. The first almost seemed like someone else had written it for her, compared to subsequent samples.

Somebody on the air pointed out yesterday that Mel Gibson came back. And people can have short memories.

But if it talks like a duck, and tweets like a duck, issues targeted put-downs like a duck, and otherwise behaves like a duck - it's probably a duck.

Action this quick removes any potential that customers/viewers perceive any linkage between Barr and the network.

The show itself was not, from what I understand, was not that incendiary. The garbage that had been spewing from her mouth was.

I think that, in some ways, it is better that Trump has lured all of the enthusiastic racists out into the light.

Remember all that nonsense the MSM was pushing during the 1st Obama inauguration that the election of Obama meant that the US was moving into a post-racial era?

Seems like a million years ago now doesnít it?

The racists are letting their hate flags fly these days. Their problem is that, while Trump may be encouraging and nurturing their vileness, the rest of the world including their employers donít want racism associated with their brand.

Making a living is hard enough in Hollywood without having your job taken away from you without a new one lined up.

Of course, those with money are going to be alright. But the lighting and makeup people, the gaffers and construction crew, all the people behind the scenes, Rosanne, the producers who pitched this gawd awful mess in the first place and the ABC execs who greenlit it, have all fucked these people, who werenít even strangers, in the ass.

And John Goodman should tell Roseanne to her overly Botoxed face why thatís a problem.

Do we call conservatives flaming?
Aren't we contributing to demonizing the word liberal by using the phrase as a verbal caricature?

144. Most of us had enough sense not to support that bullshit.

The others I don't know?

147. I didnt realize Rosanne was an altright queen

her tweets are very extreme, this should end her career unless she turns into ann coulter. Either way, karma wonít be nice to her.

152. Bye

Maybe this will serve as a wakeup call to businesses that the potential profits that can be milked from MAGA-ites aren't worth the unhinged insanity they will have to get in bed with.

156. And she'll be hired by foxnews in no time.

She'll make an excellent addition to their sheet squad. She'll even bring her own burning cross.

158. Yes! K&R

Someone else commented she is an oaf. Times that by 1,000. She also seriously needs to seek mental help.

159. She's lucky that there wasn't social media/internet in the 90s during her first show

Or her career might have tanked right at the start.

163. How much you want to bet she has undiagnosed mental and/or substance issues?

I am *NOT* defending her racist ass; I never watched her shitty show before or now either; her loud-mouth schtick always hit my ears like fingernails on a chalkboard.

But, I heard Bill Mahr say she used to be a decent human being, so wondering what changed? Maybe if she got some help, she could redeem herself and even help others? Or did the fame and money just cause her inner asshole to shine through?

168. Tom Arnold said she has multiple personality disorder.


I tend to believe it because of just how all-over-the-map her attacks have been. (She once called Israel a "Nazi state", but later referred to Palestinians as nazis. After the Trayvon Martin murder, she tweeted the address of George Zimmerman's parents saying the if he wasn't arrested she might go over and arrest him herself. Now she tweets disgusting racists comments.)

Maybe this will be a wake up call for her to get the psychiatric help she obviously needs.

171. And put quite a few people out of work in the process.

The production staff for a TV show is a pretty big group. Yeah, the star was an abomination unto God, but it is a shame she has to take so many people down with her.

173. Woof...I heard TVLand has pulled the reruns of the original off the air.

Roseanne has just singlehandedly wiped out a lot of jobs and a lot of residual money for a lot of people. Hopefully, this will be the finale of her Primetime career in Hollywood.
