ABC Execs Change Their Tune And Now Admit The TRUTH About Roseanne

Published

on

ABC’s biggest mistake was cancelling Roseanne. Everyone knew it, the viewers, even Roseanne knew it. Now it looks like ABC executives knew it

They’ve had a lot of time to reflect on their losses and now are singing a different tune, check out what they’re now saying.

From Breitbart:

Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online.

Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret.

“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,” one insider reportedly said. “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”

Barr compared Jarrett to if the ‘Muslim brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby,” comments that were condemned by Dungey as “abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values.” Yet one insider apparently suggested that ABC should instead have temporarily suspended her before making a final decision.

“They could’ve suspended her from the first few episodes without pay and had her return later on in the season,” the source explained. “I mean the season finale saw Roseanne going to the hospital for knee surgery. While they worked out her fate, her character could have faced serious complications and fought for her life, while simultaneously making Roseanne fight for her career with a national apology tour. “

“The morning the racist tweet scandal blew up, Roseanne offered to publicly apologize and do the rounds of every show but Ben and Channing weren’t having any of that and wanted her gone,” they continued. “Why not have her front a PSA for the network on racism and cyberbullying?”

Since Barr’s firing, the network has produced The Conners, a spinoff of Roseanne that premieres next week. However, another senior insider revealed to Mail Online that internal fears are that the new show will flop because of people’s loyalty to Barr and her character.

“When we greenlit The Conners we thought that the public would tune in to see the family return but what we’ve discovered is that people want Roseanne – they don’t want the family by themselves,” they explained.

“The marketing and publicity teams are horrified as no matter what promotional material is released – and let’s be honest it’s been limited for a show that launches next Tuesday – Roseanne’s fans come out in force stating that they won’t watch the show.”

“The comments on social media tend to skew in favor of Roseanne and slam The Conners and the cast members who came back,” they added. “Even dedicated fans of the Conner family feel conflicted about supporting a show that so swiftly eliminated the show’s matriarch and creator.”

Last month, Barr revealed that the network plans to kill her character off with an opioid overdose, after her character ended the last season revealing an addiction to painkillers.

That same source added that some figures within the company believe the show will attract less than a quarter of the viewership of Roseanne, a scenario that would leave Dungey with “many questions to answer.”

“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,” they continued. “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.”

In July, Barr accused ABC of firing her because of her support for Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, a position she said was “not allowed in Hollywood.”

Trump On Brink Of Forcing Migrants To Undergo MAJOR New Screening – Dems WON’T Be Happy!

President Donald Trump’s administration is considering giving U.S. troops on the border with Mexico the authority to carry out medical screening of migrants, U.S. officials told Reuters on Tuesday.

The proposal, which is still in draft form and is circulating within the administration, would involve the military in screenings for things like illness and injury only if U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency personnel were overwhelmed and unable to do so on their own, the officials said.

The proposal would expand the mission for the Pentagon, which said previously it did not expect its forces to directly interact with migrants.

The Pentagon declined to comment.

U.S. military duties on the border, including stringing up concertina wire and building temporary housing, have been aimed at supporting CBP personnel.

The U.S. officials who spoke to Reuters about the proposal did so on condition of anonymity because Trump has not yet signed off on the idea.

It was unclear if the proposal, if confirmed in the coming days, might prolong the deployment of at least some troops at the border.

The commander of the mission told Reuters last week that the number of troops may have peaked at around 5,800, and he would soon look at whether to begin sending forces home or shifting some to new border positions. [nL2N1XQ0XV]

Heather Locklear’s friends and family reportedly think the actress “needs help” and is “unstable” after she was reportedly placed on a psychiatric hold over the weekend.

“Heather had been in rehab for three months and got out in early October, the day before her daughter’s 21st birthday,” a family friend told People magazine Tuesday about the 57-year-old star’s status. “And for the last month, she has been living privately and low-key.”

“[On] Saturday, there was a fight with her boyfriend [Chris Heisser] and she threw him out and he alerted her attorney and her doctors,” the source added. “And yesterday, she was put in a 51-50.”

The insider continued, “It’s very hard on the family. Richie [Sambora] is a rock for Ava. She is holding up but always worried about her mother.”

“Heather needs help,” the source shared. “Everyone wants her to get better. She is unstable and she’s had a lot of issues, drug use, and alcohol over the years. No one wants to see her go through something like this.”

The “Melrose Place” actress was at her home Sunday when her therapist reportedly determined the star was having another mental breakdown, according to TMZ. Someone at her home called 911 and after EMTs arrived she was taken to a hospital.

“Deputies responded to Ms. Locklear’s home regarding a medical call,” Sgt. Eric Buschow of Ventura County Sheriff’s Office confirmed. “There was no crime.”

“I will not waver on always being there for Heather to see she gets the best help possible, and especially Ava,” a statement from Sambora, Heather’s ex-husband read. “I am once again very proud of my daughter for her composure and strength during this difficult time,”

Recently, Locklear reportedly completed time at a rehab for “substance abuse and her mental health,” getting out in October. The time spent at a long-term treatment center came following several domestic disturbance calls at her home over several months before.
