That's right, folks! The most watched series in 2018 isn't even on the air anymore. The Roseanne revival pulled in huge numbers during its first season back on #ABC, and it was well on its way to dominating the broadcast audience. Then sh-- went sideways; #RoseanneBarr 's offensive tweet about #ValerieJarrett got her fired from the series and #Roseanne was subsequently canceled. A spin-off, The Conners, has not been able to pull in the same massive numbers the original series did.




Why Roseanne Was Canceled by ABC - May 19 2018 The move comes after series star and creator Roseanne Barr made a comment on Twitter Tuesday morning referring to former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett as looking like the offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.” Jarrett, an African-American, was born in Iran to American parents. “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement. Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger voiced his support for the cancellation, tweeting, “There was only one thing to do here, and that was the right thing.” Barr deleted her tweet about Jarrett not long after posting it. She followed it up with an apology that read, “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me-my joke was in bad taste. I am now leaving Twitter.”
