New Report Says ABC Execs Regret Booting Roseanne. They Had This to Say About New Spinoff

Published

on

Executives over at ABC are starting to sweat bullets over the new “Roseanne” spinoff, “The Connors,” fearing it will end up flopping without the former star and creator of the series heading it up.

Roseanne Barr was fired from the network after posting a controversial tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a move the network now regrets, saying they “didn’t think it through properly.”

This is what happens when you make snap judgments based on the knee jerk reactions of a virtual audience.

According to a Thursday report in the Daily Mail, the two senior ABC executives said that firing Barr was a “knee-jerk” reaction by ABC’s network president and that the notion of firing Barr as opposed to suspending her wasn’t a well-considered decision.

“We didn’t think it through properly,” the sources told DailyMailTV. “What Roseanne did was wrong, but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her.”

The sources added, “It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey], who should have launched an investigation.”

The notion of launching an investigation, according to the sources, would have provided executives a larger window of time to “listen to the public, advertisers, and cast members” in order to determine the best course of action.

ABC cancelled the “Roseanne” revival in May after Barr tweeted what many considered to be a racist remark about former Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett.

As it turns out, there were other disciplinary actions that ABC could’ve taken without firing Barr. One option on the table was to suspend her for the first few episodes of taping, giving her less screen time for the season.

This would have worked beautifully with the storyline as she was going in for knee surgery at the end of the previous season.

The source also stated that Barr even stated she’d make public apologies, including rounds made on all of the talk shows in order to make things right.

There was even a possibility of making the whole situation a part of the next season of the show and to publicly have Roseanne working through prejudices and racism.

The source said that many fans of the Connor family are still unsure if they’ll support the Roseanne-less spinoff and the rumor going around the studio is that the ratings are not even going to be a quarter of what the show brought in last season.

Who knows what this means for the future of Roseanne Barr herself, but it certainly doesn’t look like there’s a whole lot of confidence in “The Connors.”

Michael Moore Lashes Out At Joe Biden For Reaching Out To ‘White Racist Redneck Votes In Michigan’

Michael Moore

So it seems that, despite the fact he’ll be casting his vote for Joe Biden in November, radical leftist filmmaker — a term that should be used very loosely — Michael Moore is not exactly a big fan of the crusty, old white fellow’s election behavior. In fact, over the weekend, Biden accepted the endorsement of former Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a member of the GOP, a move which left Moore extremely disappointed and upset with the former vice president. Enough so that he actually scolded him for trying to get “white racist redneck votes in Michigan.” via Daily Wire: “The Biden campaign, in an effort to convince Flint voters to stay home on Nov 3 and lose Michigan again, happily announced & embraced the endorsement of former Gov. Rick Snyder — the man who poisoned Flint’s water. 10,000 children [with] permanent brain damage,” Michael Moore tweeted. “Countless dead. Shame!” “So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint?” he later added. “Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about ‘those Black people?’ Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.” https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302276793492221953 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302305541209894913 https://twitter.com/MMFlint/status/1302314275567009794 Ever since President Donald Trump’s rousing performance at the RNC, Moore has been warning Democrats not to get complacent. In late August, he shared a poll from Michigan that had Trump besting Biden by 2 points (47% to 45%), citing it as evidence that Democrats are not sounding the alarm enough. “Someone needs to pull the fire alarm NOW. Where are the stories about Trump gaining on Biden?” Moore said on Twitter. “Below’s a poll from Fri in Michigan. Last week Trump pulled within 4 pts of Biden. Now in one poll Trump is AHEAD of Biden in MI…

Terry Crews Comments On Racist Comments Made By Nick Cannon: I Told Ya So

Published

on

Actor Terry Crews is slowly, but surely, becoming a conservative hero as he continues to take the Black Lives Matter movement and the political correctness of the progressive movement, refusing to give in to the madness and hatred being spewed out on the left. Crews has stated time and again that he’s not going to hate on white people, which is really what’s going on beneath the veneer of social justice BLM hides behind. It’s a refreshing stance to see these days to be sure. Recently, actor and TV host Nick Cannon was booted from ViaCom after making anti-Semitic and anti-white comments during a radio show. Crews has now responded to those comments and he couldn’t be more right. via The Daily Wire: “We have to include this white voice, this Hispanic voice, this Asian voice. We have to include it RIGHT NOW, because if we don’t […] it’s going to slip into something we are really not prepared for,” Crews posted, quoting himself. “Terry Crews ‘THE TALK interview’ June 16th, 2020,’” he added. https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283280895403864064 In reaction to Crews’ pointed tweet, one Twitter user told the actor “no black person” will have his back: “You going so hard against Nick Cannon, but when you fall, NO BLACK PERSON will have your back. Watch.” “When I was young, I was never afraid of the KKK,” Crews responded. “It was people like you. The threats, the intimidation, discouraging free thought, and ‘the insult of acting white.’ My heart breaks because your behavior only reveals you don’t know how powerful you are.” https://twitter.com/terrycrews/status/1283293611208183808 Just to give you a little context for how dedicated Crews is to his position and how much wisdom and truth this man has, one of his tweets from the month of June says, “Defeating White Supremacy without White people…
