ABC Approves ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, However There’s One Thing Missing

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what’s going to happen with this.

One of the tragic side effects of Roseanne Barr’s show getting cancelled after her controversial Twitter remarks was that a lot of folks lost their jobs who depended on that income to survive, not to mention it put her co-stars out of work after just getting them back on board for the series revival.

Well, it seems Roseanne herself, along with ABC have reached some sort of settlement for the rights to the characters and are doing a spinoff called “The Connors,” without the former title star having any sort of involvement with the project.

How this is going to work exactly is anyone’s guess, but it seems reasonable to believe that since much of the revival’s success was due to Barr’s support of President Trump, that particular part of the fanbase will be largely absent and will leave a sizable dent in the ratings.

The show’s star, Roseanne Barr, was let go and the show was canceled abruptly three weeks ago following a racist tweet by Barr, but ABC said in a release that the network is starting a new show about the Conner family without her.

Barr stoked outrage on social media after she compared former Obama administration official Valerie Jarrett to an ape, and she will not be involved in the new show, tentatively titled “The Conners.”

“Roseanne Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in the new series,” ABC said.

The show will deal with “parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America,” ABC added. “Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns—with love, humor, and perseverance, the family prevails.”

Barr agreed to let the show go forward without her and made a statement about the settlement she came to with the network.

“I regret the circumstances that have caused me to be removed from ‘Roseanne,'” she said. “I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved.”

Again, it’s highly doubtful that this is going to be a runaway success like the original series and its recent revival, as the decision to fire Barr didn’t really go over very well with a lot of Trump supporters, and those folks made up a huge swath of her new viewership.

Guess we’ll have to wait and see what’s going to happen with this.

Accused Sexual Assaulter Chris Cuomo says Trump Supporters are ‘Not Good People’

What’s the one about the glass houses and the stones?

Chris Cuomo

Well it takes one to know one, as they say.

Chris Cuomo, CNN primetime anchor and a man accused of sexually groping his former boss in 2005, has now taken a pot-shot at the entirety of the MAGA-verse, in a tone deaf rant on his television program.

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Monday during the opening of his show “Cuomo Prime Time” that Republicans were “all-in” on former President Donald Trump’s claims he won the 2020 election.

Cuomo said, “We’ve never seen one party in this damnable two-party system that we insist on go all-in on a lie. So half of your political system is invested in a lie. That’s happening. It’s not just Trump. The whole party practically backs actively or passively, selling that the election was not legitimate.”

And then…

On Democrats’ objection to elections, Cuomo said, “Questioning is different than finding no proof and then lying and refusing to certify. That’s what Trump and Co. did. There are not good people on both sides of this argument. And I will be dammed if I sit by and don’t say this as plainly as possible because this will be remembered. There are not good people on both sides. This is not a good faith dispute. It is bad faith. They know the election was not rigged. They know it was legitimate. Anyone telling you with full knowledge that they have no proof and yet the election wasn’t legit is part of an effort that may lead us to an all-time low.”

Once again, the network has proved that their editorial programming is little more than a series of purposefully-inflammatory rhetoric meant to sell commercials.

Jamie Lee Curtis Adds January 6th Sub-Plot to New ‘Halloween’ Movie

Wait…what?!

Published

on

Hollywood has long been filled with liberal narratives and radical leftist ideology.  The wealthy elites who inhabit the culture, city, and industry of Tinsel Town lean left more consistently than that tower in Pisa, Italy.  Americans have learned to live with this, just so long as the work they produce isn’t overtly politically charged or hateful toward certain cultural demographics.

This week, however, one of Hollywood’s most famous actresses has suggested that her latest schlocky horror movie is actually a high-brow take on the January 6th insurrection.

In a interview with filmmaker Eli Roth on the “History of Horror” podcast, Jamie Lee Curtis explained that the last two Halloween movies — Halloween in 2018 and Halloween Kills, which opens Friday — are part of a planned trilogy she is making with director David Gordon Green.

Curtis said the 2018 Halloween movie reflected the themes of the #MeToo movement, including the notion of women seizing power.

“[When] we were launching the 2018 movie, it was right in the center of the MeToo movement,” she said. “And so women taking power and speaking truth to power and voicing their experiences as trauma victims was echoing all over the world when we released that movie — a movie about a woman taking power from her trauma against her oppressor.”

Listen Below:

“So I think there was this spectacular confluence of life and evolution of women and Laurie Strode coming to grips with Michael Myers.”

Halloween Kills picks up on the same night where the previous movie ended, with a wounded Laurie Strode (Curtis) fleeing her burning house.

“The second movie is about mob violence,” the actress said.

And then…

“We have just in America watched a mob descend on January 6 with nooses and stun guns and members of Congress in the building,” she continued. “And we all watched it on TV.”

Curtis described the new movie as the story of a “mob descending together,” comprised of people who are going “to take matters into their own hands.”

The movie itself has garnered less than enthusiastic reviews, with one critic going so far as to say that the series appears to be “stuck” in 1978.
