Actress Roseanne Barr rebuffed her bosses at ABC Entertainment on Tuesday during the fall upfront presentations, promising that the next season of her hit sitcom Roseanne will be even braver and politically timely than the last. Dont worry, #Roseanne show fans-next season will be even braver/funnier/timely than this season, despite what anyone mistakenly says.
Barrs comments come after ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey claimed the shows next season would be less political.
I think that theyre going to stay on the path that they were on towards the end of last season, which is away from politics and towards family, Dungey told reporters on a conference call on Tuesday.
The show has enjoyed historically high ratings since its return to the airwaves in March, earning an impressive 27 million viewers on its debut, while also managing to maintain the majority of its audience since then.
Part of the rebooted Roseannes success may be attributed to its exploration of prominent issues such as Donald Trumps election to the presidency, the effects of illegal immigration, and Muslims living in the United States.
Indeed, the latest episode of the show soberly tackles Americas deadly opioid and drug addiction epidemic.

The season is over already?
When liberals are losing, they must SILENCE the opposition. When that fails,then they must be destroyed.
True in MSM Hollywood too. Tim Allen and Roseann both know.
only 13 episoeds were green lit this year before the renewal...
YAWN, never watched it.
YAWN you’re boring.
The regular season shows end in May. Some get re-run during the summer. Then after the emmys the new shows start late september or early october.
Thin-skinned liberals can dish it out but not take it! The whole show could be political as long as it’s liberal puke. The minute there’s praise about Pres Trump, all hell breaks loose, and it’s ‘we gotta be less political!’ Morons.
ABC would rather tank the #1 show television than let her have free reign
And you waste time on this stupid distraction.
It's relevant and showcases blue collar America better than most shows on TV. TV execs are starting to understand that Americans want relatable TV shows not more superheroes, magic, or fantasy.
I think she had exactly ONE show where it mentioned her support for Trump. One. Because of that, liberals go bananas.
the raw numbers dont lie, any show that beats prime time football is a force to be reckoned with. Fox just brought back Tim Allen because of this...
Channing Dungey mentioned.
What fiction movie or TV show is not a distraction?
She has the leverage
I used the wrong word. It is a indoctrination for homosexuallity. I saw that from just one ad for the show. You are being distracted thinking it is a show about politics.
I only occasionally saw the old show decades ago. Never got into it. I have not see the new show, but I think I will try to go out of my way to see it now...starting to like Rosanne’s attitude.
Last Man Standing on Fox prime time should be a hoot.. :)
You mean, people don’t want to see more shows with smart ass kids, or shows about yuppie singles in Manhattan?
