It was ABC's #1 show. But nobody is gonna pick it up. It's toxic, and has a toxic star. ABC cancelled it before advertiser boycotts that were surely coming.

The Soros boogieman is SO 1984's Goldstein that its almost like racists like Roseanne are modeling themselves off of fictional racists.

Tom has a show hawking conspiracy theories about Trump. They are two jokers.

Most of the cast has come out and said they won't work with her again.

You all laugh now, but Roseanne will get her revenge when her show is picked up by InfoWars TV Network, and signs Ted Nugent, Tomi Lahren & Dana Loesch to co-star.

I'm really enjoying all of the "they fired her for her politics" responses.

Because apparently there's no difference between conservatism and racism anymore.

TV Land, Paramount tv, and CMT have all announced they're pulling roseanne reruns from the schedule, and Hulu is dropping it entirely from their streaming library.

That seems a little extreme. I'm not condoning what she said. She certainly deserves to be fired. But they didn't pull Seinfeld reruns after Michael Richards' incident. This move doubles down on punishing the rest of the cast for statements that they didn't make and have already condemned.

Yeah, that seems more than a bit much. The original Roseanne is one of the best/most important sitcoms of all time, and was the work of a LOT of people besides just Roseanne herself. Basically scrubbing a touchstone collaborative past work is some huge overkill, IMO.
