Hollywood liberals achieved their goal by booting Roseanne Barr off the air.
With the reboot of the incredibly successful ‘Roseanne,’ Barr’s show featured President Trump-supporting characters that America had been yearning for, for a long time.
And now the star is planning something that will really shake up the liberal Hollywood dynamic.
Roseanne Barr got a bad deal about a month ago when her show was ripped out from under her feet for an irresponsible comment she made on Twitter.
Barr had tweeted about Valerie Jarrett, an African American woman who was a senior adviser, saying she looked like the“muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby = vj.”
But Roseanne stunned her fans when she said she’s been getting offers to make a comeback.
Roseanne Barr told Rabbi Shmuley Boteach on his podcast over the weekend that she is mulling a return to television and has already received several offers.
Barr said, “Inside every bad thing is a good thing waiting to happen and I feel very excited because I’ve already been offered so many things and I almost already accepted one really good offer to go back on TV and I might do it. But we’ll see.”
Roseanne’s reboot was the number one show on primetime television by a long shot.
It blew the doors off the projections and originally scored a total of 18.2 million viewers for the premiere episode, which remarkably drew 10% more viewers than the original series finale 21 years ago.
In fact, what was first reported as an 18 million viewership, which is amazingly impressive as it is, turned out to actually be 30 million viewers.
This proves that conservative comedy is an enormously untapped market.
While nostalgia was expected, the reboot also empathized with the overlooked working-class Americans.
President Trump even phoned Barr with a congratulatory response.
And this was something that nobody in Hollywood predicted, and it remained a huge hit for the entirety of its first season run.
But after Barr’s tweet, the cast and producers got together with the network to move forward with the same show but without its main star.
The Roseanne spinoff The Conners (working title) will follow the Conner family who, after a sudden turn of events, are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before.
ABC shamelessly announced that Barr would have no financial or creative involvement, despite creating the original concept, but they did say she would retain all of the rights to her Roseanne Conner character.
This won’t matter to the spinoff because the writers will likely kill her off in one way or another.
But the Roseanne character could make a comeback in a different format since Barr retains the rights to it.
Only time will tell what direction her career may take, but in the meantime, those that loved the Roseanne revival can get excited for the comeback of Last Man Standing featuring Tim Allen very soon.
