An eight episode revival season in the pipeline, most of the cast coming back too.

I was wondering how that'd work, and Barr had apparently written an essay on where she'd place the characters now

If you recall in 2009, Roseanne published a short tidbit on her website about “where the characters from the series would be today”, including things like Roseanne and Jackie opening the first medical marijuana dispensary in Lanford; Dan reappearing alive after faking his death; DJ being published; Mark dying in Iraq; David leaving Darlene for a woman half his age; Darlene coming out, meeting a woman and having a baby with her; Becky working at Walmart; Arnie befriending the Governor of Illinois and remarrying Nancy, Bev selling a painting for $10,000; Jerry and the grandsons forming a boy band; and Bonnie being arrested for selling crack.

If this means I'll be able to stream the original series on Netflix, Amazon, or Hulu? Sign me up.

Not only was that show some of the most biting social commentary about the lower-middle class on tv a the time, but it also gave me my weekly Sara Gilbert fix.

He had some sitcom that got cancelled on one network, but picked up by another. Why it was cancelled is a topic of some debate. On one end of the spectrum it was because the show had low ratings, and on the other end it's because it was about being a sane rational voice of masculine reason in an ever politically correct landscape.

I can't say one way or the other, because I never watched it.

Never seen it either, though I've always had a soft spot for Allen. What I'm seeing is that it had strong ratings, though, which doesn't seem like something that can be debated. Numbers are numbers.

ABC Cancelled Last Man Standing because Tim Allen is a trump supporter and went to his tiny inauguration that is what I read. Fox then picked it up last week.

I don't know how I feel about it, on one hand it's funny and I'm glad her racist remarks are getting her punished but on the other is this really the action that should've been taken? I mean a racist comment is nowhere near as bad as sexual assault but I think she's kinda getting it worse than Kevin Spacey.

Also people need to learn to separate the art from the artist, Roseanne was an awesome show and this revival sounded like it was good, I totally believe Roseanne would've voted for Trump in that universe's world.


I mean spotify is now taking off music because of their lyrics and banning artists. This is not something I approve of.

I’ve never really been into this sitcom. Originally or now. I didn’t have anything against it. Just one of those things I never got into. I’d watch it sometimes. The Halloween episodes were great and was looking forward to see what they came up with.

Some saying to get rid of her and continue on with the others as some sitcoms have continued without a lead. I’m all for continuing stuff but she was the reason for bringing it back. That would be very weird.

No I’m not defending her. I just said I barely watched the first run. I don’t follow her and I hate politics. Still I was glad that a revival like this was so successful because of all the criticism updates and such gets.

It does nothing to her financially. She should have kept her trash talk to herself for the sake the fans.

Although he's not as bad as Roseanne (obviously), by his own merits, Auman is a petty and spiteful individual. Even though the situation has already been (properly and appropriately) dealt with, he still wants to gloat, as that glorifies both his own ego and status.

In other words, his opinion on the subject literally does not matter in the slightest. He's just making a fool out of himself.

Did you also hear the part at 1:20 on the video that HBO actually rebroadcasted the episode before pulling it off the air? One would think that the individuals responsible for it on HBO would have stopped rebroadcasting before the public outrage, but apparently superiors on the production crew who were responsible, had no moral qualms about rebroadcasting that episode to the public. In the Roseanne incident it was about one individual on her individually-controlled Twitter account, with that Bill Maher episode, it was not only Bill Maher, but also the backing of production and broadcasting oversight superiors who felt it suitable and appropriate for the public.

It's interesting when you have ABC/Disney taking such a strong stand against racism in feeling that Roseanne's words are worth firing her and cancelling her show, but yet has no problem working with sex offenders and pedophiles:


Some Question ABC’s And Disney’s Willingness To Work With Registered Sex Offenders And Pedophiles After Immediately Canceling ‘Roseanne’

While many people agree that Roseanne Barr’s comments were racist, they are questioning why her show was immediately canceled when the network has a history of working with registered sex offenders and pedophiles who were convicted of crimes against children.

An Open Secret, who is known for their explosive documentary by the same name that highlighted the prevalence of sex offenders and pedophiles who aren’t just working in the industry, but continue working with children, shared a tweet that is going viral asking the question. In the tweet, they pointed to Brian Peck who was convicted in 2004 of two counts of the original multiple counts that all centered around the sexual abuse of an underage, Nickelodeon star. Peck was ultimately convicted on one count of a lewd act against a child and one count of oral copulation of a person under 16 after he admitted to the crimes.

Before Peck’s 2004 conviction, he worked on many children’s shows including multiple series that starred Amanda Bynes such as The Amanda Show, What I Like About You, and All That. Peck also worked on the children’s’ series Boy Meets World, Clueless, Kenan and Kel, The Tick, and Growing Pains. You may see a full list of Brian Peck’s television and film credits on his official IMDB page.

After Brian Peck’s arrest and conviction, Disney (which is owned by ABC) hired him to work on the children’s series Yay, Me! Starring London Tipton and The Suite Life of Zack & Cody.

Brian Peck is a good friend of actor Charlie Sheen and in 2013 worked on the series Anger Management as a dialogue coach for 22 episodes.

Brian Peck isn’t the only registered sex-offender who has been convicted of child sex abuse crimes hired by ABC/Disney following their conviction.


In 1988, the child actor from the movie Clownhouse Nathan Forrest Winters told his mother at the end of filming that the director Victor Salva had been molesting him for approximately five years. Salva was found guilty on five of the 11 original counts after he confessed to the sexual abuse and video recordings of him abusing Nathan Winters were found in his home. Police also found videotapes and magazines featuring child pornography as well.

Though Clownhouse was a low budget movie backed by Francis Ford Coppola, Salva went on to enjoy a thriving, lucrative career that was continually backed and supported by Coppola.

Victor Salva is behind the three Jeepers Creepers films.

You can find a full filmography for Victor Salva on his IMDB page, including the Disney backed movie Powder that Salva directed and wrote in 1995. The movie was produced and distributed through the then Disney owned production and distribution company Caravan Pictures.

Victor Salva’s victim Nathan Forrest Winters protested the release of the film but to no avail. Powder had an estimated budget of $9.5 million and grossed $31 million in the United States alone.

Many are now questioning why ABC and Disney would take such a firm stance with Roseanne Barr for sharing a racist tweet, yet allow registered sex-offenders and those convicted of pedophilia to continue working for them.

What do you think? Did ABC make the right call in pulling the plug on Roseanne? Do you think Disney, ABC and other networks and production companies should take as strong a stance against child sexual abuse as they do toward racism?

Roseanne is a network show aimed at families and that network to my knowledge is owned by Disney. HBO is a cable station most don't have unless you pay extra, right?

I like Maher, I seem to agree with him more than the average alt-left/right person, that's not to say he doesn't have views I disagree with. There's a reason he's disliked by both conservatives and liberals. I don't think its a fair comparison with Roseanne but whatever.

A shame the show is being cancelled, I understand why they would do it. Anyone outraged over the show ending or for what Roseanne said are both idiots. A company has got to do what it has go to do and Roseanne was just being Roseanne.

Big fan of the show, I spent many late nights watching marathons of the show. I heard the reivival was fun, will check the whole series out one day. I hope the rumors about continuing without Roseanne are false, I mean she might not have been the best part of the show but at the end of the day it was her show and it'd feel weird without her.

I'll definitely watch it one day but I'm sure it won't be any good no matter how people say that Roseanne was the least interesting character and not that important, she was still pretty damn important, I mean what are they going to do? Kill her of a heart attack a la John Goodman in the last season? :lol:

If I'm not mistaken, the character was supposed to get surgery or something. They'll probably kill her off while in the operating room.
