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.

Cable News Blasted for Conjuring Controversy in Columbus Police Shooting

This is just dirty.

The sad truth of the matter, when it comes to the mainstream media, is that they are more successful when we are more emotional. It’s a dirty trick of human biology:  The chemicals in our brain that allow us to feel joy, sorrow, humor, and fury are just similar enough to one another that we become addicted to them, one and all.  Feeling something stimulates our self-awareness, and we learn to crave it. So, when you tune into CNN and what they are saying angers you, they’re planting small hooks in your noggin, reeling you in to watch the commercials that pay all of their salaries. If you watch Fox, however, and you find yourself enthusiastically cheering after a host or guest has a mic drop moment, your brain again finds what it’s looking for, and here you are seeing your 14th Progressive commercial of the day. All of the big networks know this and actively participate in this salacious shamanism, and sometimes they cross the line. Liberal outlets HuffPost and AJ+ omitted key details or pushed false narratives in their videos about the fatal police shooting of a Black teenager in Columbus, Ohio on Tuesday. HuffPost failed to note the woman who was shot, Ma’Khia Bryant, pushed another female to the ground and lunged at another with a knife when police arrived at the scene. The misleading HuffPo video was accompanied by the following text, which appeared to paint the police as the villain. “Black girl killed by police,” the text read. “Police in Columbus, OH shot & killed a Black teen around the same time the verdict was read in the Derek Chauvin trial. Body-camera footage showed an officer firing several times at Ma’Khia Bryant before she collapsed to the ground. The video also showed a knife falling next to the…

Derek Chauvin on Suicide Watch, Away From General Population

Chauvin’s incarceration will certainly not be a pleasant one once he leaves isolation.

There is little doubt that Derek Chauvin is going to have a bad time in jail.  The former police officer was just convicted on several charges stemming from his involvement in the death of George Floyd, with one those charges being murder in the 3rd degree. Chauvin’s sentence won’t be known for some time, likely about 8 weeks, so there’s no telling just where he’ll wind up serving his time.  But ex-cops don’t fare all that well in certain prisons, and there will almost certainly be an incentive to tangle with the guy while he’s on the inside. For the time being, however, Chauvin is being kept separate from the general population, out of fear for his safety. Derek Chauvin has been pictured in his first mugshot taken at the maximum security prison in Minnesota where he’s on suicide watch after being found guilty on all three counts of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd. The Minnesota Department of Corrections released the new booking photo on Wednesday morning as Chauvin woke up from his first night at MCF-Oak Park Heights. The 45-year-old dressed in an orange jumpsuit appeared tired and puffy-eyed with a frown and his hair in disarray. The mugshot was soon making the rounds online. https://twitter.com/ABC/status/1384867831792209921?s=20 Chauvin is expected to file an appeal in the coming weeks, possibly on the grounds that he could not have possibly received a fair trial with the statements being made in public by politicians such as Maxine Waters of California.
