ABC isn’t the only network dropping Roseanne. Deadline reports TV Land, CMT, and Paramount have cancelled reruns of the cancelled TV show.
As reported earlier, ABC has axed the sitcom after star Roseanne Barr posted offensive statements on Twitter. The series’ cast also includes John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Michael Fishman, Alicia Goranson, Emma Kenny, and Sarah Chalke.
ATLANTA (May 29, 2018) — While we believe viewers have always distinguished the personal behavior of the actress Roseanne Barr from the television character Roseanne Connor, we are disgusted by Barr’s comments this week. Therefore, we are removing the original Roseanne series from the Laff schedule for the time being, effective immediately.
Laff, the country’s first-ever, over-the-air broadcast television network devoted to comedy around-the-clock, features a hall-of-fame line-up of hit sitcoms including That ‘70s Show, Home Improvement, 3rd Rock from the Sun, The Drew Carey Show, Night Court, Spin City and more.”
What do you think? Were you a fan of the Roseanne reboot? Would you have watched season two?
Update: Hulu has now pulled the season 10 episodes of Roseanne off of the streaming service. ABC has replaced the reruns they had planned to air in primetime.
