‘The Conners” W/O Roseanne Crashes And Burns – ABC Orders Just One More Episode

Is this a hint of things to come in next week’s Midterm Elections as the Silent Majority in America once again flexes its muscle and sends another message to the D.C. and Establishment Media swamps? ABC’s attempt to reboot the Roseanne show without Roseanne lost to every other show for its time slot as Roseanne fans stayed away even after the network pumped millions of dollars into advertising for the show. It went from a #1 program to dead last because the network was so quick to put its star and creator, Roseanne Barr, into their politically-correct crosshairs.


 

‘The Conners’ Debuts With A Thud – Ratings Less Than Half Of ‘Roseanne’

A 55% decline is a huge disappointment and that is exactly what happened to ‘The Conners’ as it premiered last night without the embattled female star who created that iconic working-class family three decades ago. Fans of the original series tuned out and even with considerable advertising, news coverage, and public interest in how the show would manage to go on after its star was abruptly fired for making a tweet about Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett (a longtime adviser to Barack Obama) the lower-than-hoped-for ratings likely spell doom for the attempted series reboot.

Via Entertainment Weekly:

…The debut airing delivered 10.5 million viewers and a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49.

That’s down 55 percent from the premiere of Roseanne last spring.

…When Roseanne returned on ABC earlier last March, the first episode delivered a staggering 18.2 million viewers and a 5.1 rating among adults 18-49 in the overnight Nielsens.

…ABC has had some rough sledding this season. The network understandably axed its top comedy Roseanne due to Barr’s tweets in May but also less understandably canceled Last Man Standing — which Fox picked up and is now using it to easily pummel every other show on Friday night. In the overall ratings so far this fall, ABC has slipped into fourth place behind Fox (and that’s even if you take the sports coverage that boosts ABC’s rivals out of the equation).

The above outlines a firm fact regarding conservative America. First, they make up the majority. Second, they are loyal to the things they like. And third, they’ll punish news and entertainment entities that go too far in trying to spread leftist/anti-American ideology by taking their business elsewhere.

Sooner or later there has to be some media execs who understand and accept that undeniable fact and create and promote programs accordingly. If not, networks like ABC will continue to be left behind.


 

ABC Execs Now Regret Firing Roseanne

As the Roseanne reboot ‘The Connors’ is set to launch this week, ABC executives are now admitting they might have made a terrible mistake in firing the iconic sitcom star and then attempting to revise the show without her even as millions of Roseanne fans say NO WAY to the new show that is absent the star who created it in the first place.

ABC Regrets Firing Roseanne; “We Didn’t Think It Through Properly”

ABC executives regret their “knee-jerk” decision to fire Roseanne Barr, and now believe that the network’s spin-off series The Conners will fail under the weight of its own politically correct hubris, reports the Daily Mail, citing two anonymous execs.

“We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,” said one insider, who added, “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

The Roseanne reboot – which quickly became ABC’s #1 top-rated series in April, was quickly derailed after the network suddenly fired star Roseanne Barr after she compared former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to if the “Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a bay,” comments which were condemned by Dungey as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.”

Barr, 65, was fired before a single advertiser pulled out, just three months into the show’s return. Her co-stars immediately turned on her, publicly shunning Roseanne for her tweet.

…”In the end, the ratings are all that matter – and there are many people at Disney and ABC who are worried that firing Roseanne will see their Tuesday night ratings drop substantially. And should The Conners flop, Channing and her team will have many questions to answer.”

“The whisper across ABC is that they will not even be a quarter of what Roseanne achieved last season.”

An ABC spokesperson told the Mail denied that the network is concerned about the success of the Connors.

…And the crowd cheers. There is a real cultural shift underway in American right now. For the first time in a very long time, the status quo is being questioned. Roseanne is now playing a significant part in that shift. Hopefully, more will continue to speak out as she as has done. It isn’t about Democrat vs Republican or even Donald Trump – far from it. It’s about the freedom to speak your mind and not be attacked/vilified/financially harmed for doing so.


 

Democrat Nightmare: “Roseanne” Virtually Tied For # Of Black Viewers With “Blackish”

“How can this be!?” is the leftist lament as millions of minority families tune in to watch ABC’s Roseanne – one of the few shows in all of TV land to give a fair and honest glimpse into Working Class America.

First Kanye. Now these astounding Roseanne numbers. Could Black America finally be waking to the fact they’ve been bamboozled, pushed down, and marginalized by the very political plantation that has long claimed to be fighting for them?


 

Why Did Obama Care So Little About Child Sex Trafficking?

He talked about how much he cared about people but over and over again the actual results of his presidency told a far different story. From tens of millions more enslaved by welfare, to drone bombings of civilians, most of them women and children in the Middle East, to worsening race relations and putting targets on the backs of law enforcement, to a further widening between the haves and have-nots, Barack Obama decimated innocent lives both here at home and abroad.

His record of largely ignoring the plague that is human sex trafficking, much of it involving children, might very well be the most troubling aspect of his many failings:


 

REPORT: Roseanne Ratings Even Higher Than Initial Estimates As Pro-Trump America Embraces Comedy Comeback

Just how good were the ratings for the Roseanne reboot. Good. Very-very good.

In fact almost 22 million good. Those are numbers that place the show as one of the biggest network television premiers of all time.

Via Breitbart:

In fact, Barr was amused to note that the ratings for Roseanne were even better than the anti-Trump 60 Minutes interview with porn star Stormy Daniels.

“Wow! Final ratings show that our show beat Stormi Daniels after all!! thank you, peeps!!” Barr Tweeted.

With only two episodes of the new season aired, ABC announced on Friday that the network would renew Roseanne for a second season.

“We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes,” Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said according to Deadline. “The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can’t wait to see what the ‘Roseanne’ team has in store for next year.”

Is Roseanne Reboot Poised To Be A Big Hit With Trump Supporters?

The character of Roseanne Connor is said to be a vocal Trump supporter. The real-life Roseanne Barr apparently holds similar pro-Trump leanings. Tonight the show that was a cultural phenomenon twenty years ago is back on ABC.

Will millions of Trump supporters tune in?

Via Politico:

“…Barr herself is a vocal Trump supporter, and has talked about how meaningful it felt to place one of TV’s quintessential working-class families in Year Two of the Trump administration. So I asked Helford, who also worked on the original show, about the producers’ intention. Was it to appeal to Trump voters, who might finally see themselves in sympathetic TV characters? To explain the Trump-voter mind-set to coastal elites? To bridge the gap between two sides?

Helford responded by talking about conversations. As ever-present as politics might be in people’s lives today, he notes, we often avoid tough discussions, in real life, with people on the opposite side.

“There are lots of families that are divided. It’s like a civil war,” Helford says, recounting some of his own family gatherings, where people steered away from political topics because they knew things would get too heated or cruel. “What’s really important to ‘Roseanne,’ and for all of us, is to put the whole discourse out in the open,” he says. “We’re hoping we can bring a kind of dialogue back.”

…But “Roseanne” isn’t just trying to explain the Conners’ perspective to outsiders. It’s also one of few TV series that has focused on the working-class white experience, allowing a demographic that’s psychologically distant from Hollywood to see itself in a positive, nonjudgmental light. “There’s something really important about visibility and representation, and we know that because we’ve heard it from minority groups for years,” Young says. At a time when viewership is fractured and even NFL football gets swept up into the partisan divide, this feels like a rare opportunity: a show that people of different perspectives might actually watch together.”

—————-

Therein lies the true appeal of the Connor family. It represents in so many ways the white working class in this country – those millions and millions of people who really do keep the entire American Machine running.

Will such a show still find an audience in 2018? Will the powers-that-be actually let it?

We’re about to find out.
