Quote:
The reboot, which will feature returning stars Roseanne Barr and John Goodman among others, is set to air midseason.

It's official: Roseanne is returning to ABC.

The network has handed out an eight-episode straight-to-series order for a revival of the wildly popular family sitcom headlined by comedian Roseanne Barr. The reboot will debut sometime midseason on the network.

My better half and I watched the original program. She really liked it while I merely tolerated it. (Happy wife...) Call me prejudiced, but I didn't see much humor in those two snarky, obese people. Said the overweight person posting. Another reason to watch only news and sports.

I just don't see what it is this show will be. Is it a 'in the future' where Roseanne is a grandma? Is Dan showing up in flashbacks or are they redoing the timeline as 'it was all a dream'? Which would be highly idiotic as they already said it was 'just a book' for the last season.

Anyways, the original show tapped into the 'working class' life much more than any other 'family show' of the time ever did. It was crude, and showed with a bit of disdain for poverty but what even 'struggling' people did manage to accomplish (Dan opened a bike shop but it went under, and I know they had a restaurant, but I thought it went out of business at some point but don't remember). Either way, in today's age with Netflix, Hulu, and the 'true life' type shows, I don't see how a Roseanne-like reboot today would work other than to try and tap into the nostalgia of the original show.

My bet is Roseanne will say/do something idiotic in the coming months and she'll be fired before the show finishes starts filming. Tough to adjust and conform to back into the public spotlight when you've been out of it for so long.

On the network that only wants liberal leaning shows....I'll probably never watch it. Never really watched the original.

Didn't watch the last show, will not watch this one. Don't agree with Barr's political slants, and they'll be on full display on this show.

It's absolutely amazing how wrong 14Red can be on literally everything. His wrong percentage has got to be upwards of 90%.

But ABC cancelled a legitimate hit with Last Man Standing and is trying bring back Roseanne?

Network TV has gotten pretty bad....

Didn't know Roseanne would take this much heat on here, lol.

I watched the original and still watch some reruns every once in a while. The Halloween specials were extraordinary and the show was pretty good overall.

I'll probably check this out, but I don't have high expectations.

Both Roseanne and Goodman have shed 100+ pounds. It will be interesting to see how much appeal they have as normal looking people.

So they cancel a show with a conservative slant with high ratings and bring back a moronic show that idolizes being a dysfunctional family. ABC really is trash TV.

don't blame ABC, blame sponsors. LMS had good ratings, but did horribly in the demographics that ad companies covet.

has little to do with the conservative slant of the show, other than the fact that it attracted a demographic that doesn't buy the products that most advertise on tv.
