Pro-Trump ‘Roseanne’ Brings in Big Ratings, But Now ABC Wants to Make Major Change

When will Hollywood ever learn?

Published

The entertainment industry has become an absolute cesspool filled to the brim with nutty leftist propaganda where anyone who thinks differently is silenced and blacklisted, booted from Hollywood without a second thought.

To say that conservative audiences are underserved when it comes to quality television and film is an understatement of epic proportions. Hollywood seemingly doesn’t think there’s a lot of folk out there who would be interested in seeing people with traditional values represented in their shows, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

The huge popularity and success of ABC’s “Last Man Standing” — which was cancelled but has been moved to Fox — and the reboot of “Roseanne” have proven this theory to be absolute hogwash.

Roseanne Barr, an ardent Trump supporter, has not shied away from showcasing her support for the president as the title character in her show, and audiences loved it. The show drew in a record setting number of viewers and clearly proved that this particular demographic is hungry for representation.

You’d think major networks would get the point and start looking in fairly representing people on both sides of the political spectrum, but instead, they’re now wanting “Roseanne” to get away from politics.

Despite delivering record-breaking ratings — 25 million people watched the season premiere — and tons of positive media coverage for ABC, the pro-Trump slant of the “Roseanne” re-boot has proved too much for network executives, who have requested the show tone down its politics for season two.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey told reporters this week they are pushing the show away from politics and toward a family-centered program.

“I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family,” she said, according to TheWrap.

“I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with ‘Roseanne’ on the air is that it is focusing a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air,” she added.

When will these ignorant Hollywood executives finally get the picture? You’d think money, which is a huge motivating factor in the entertainment industry, would be the language these people speak, as these popular shows can bring in a ton of bank for the network.

It should be a matter of principle to want to have programming that speaks to people of varying backgrounds, but alas, principle is something in short supply in the country right now.
