ABC order 'Roseanne' spinoff for fall minus Roseanne Barr

Roseanne Barr Reboot Character Killed Off

USA broadcast network ABC said on Thursday it has ordered a 10-episode spinoff of comedy "Roseanne" that will air without any involvement of its creator Roseanne Barr, who sparked widespread outrage by tweeting a racial slur.

ABC ordered the show straight to series (meaning no pilot episode was necessary for its approval) for 10 episodes. "I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from 'Roseanne, '" she said in a statement picked up by the Hollywood Reporter.

After getting the chance last season to tell stories about challenges facing working-class family, they're glad to "continue to share those stories through love and laughter", the actors said. In a joint statement of support, the fictional TV family said it was "happy to have the opportunity to return with the cast and crew".

Barr's show was abruptly canceled after she sent a tweet likening Valerie Jarret, an adviser to President Obama, to the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes".

Federer loses No. 1 spot as Coric stuns him in Halle final
This was Federer's first defeat on this surface since he lost to Tommy Haas in his opening match of the 2017 grass-court season. Roger Federer lost to Borna Coric in three sets in the Halle final and in press conference he analyzed how the match went.

The show will fill the 8 p.m. Tuesday spot ABC had reserved for "Roseanne" in the fall before canceling it.

Barr's talent agency, ICM Partners, also dropped her.

But if network executives meant what they said about Barr's comments being an affront to their values, that would have been a relatively small price to pay, especially for a company with the overall scope of ABC parent Disney. If you can recall, this whole thing started when Roseanne made a decision to Tweet out a racist remark she claimed was only a joke.

While it's awesome to know that crew and other cast members not involved in Roseanne's racist tomfoolery will still have jobs, it's important to never forget that their driving force for green-lighting the spin-off is money.

Scribner said in a Facebook post that passengers onboard were all smiling and enjoying Cook having someone to talk to. Scribner's post on Facebook has gone viral with more than 300,000 likes and 177,000 shares.

Executive producer Tom Werner and Barr reached a financial agreement that allowed the spinoff to go forward without her.

The bottom line is that Barr is likely to be worse off, certainly, than she would have been if the show had continued with her, but better off than if this new spin-off weren't happening at all.

Just a few weeks after canceling "Roseanne" after the show's star Roseanne Barr posted racist and freakish tweets, ABC says it is keeping the show alive - without Barr.

After her top-rated show was canceled by the network following a controversial tweet, ABC got to work on figuring out ways to continue the franchise without the baggage of Barr. It is not known how Barr's character will be written off the show.

She says she later received an email notification that her prescription was ready at another Walgreens across town. Arteaga said many women have reached out to her with similar stories. "I tried to explain to him".

While I'm sure the new series will draw curiosity views, I expect it will take the recent trajectory of the Roseanne revival where there's big ratings at the beginning and it will slowly decline as the forces of time-shifting and streaming take hold.
