I am going to check it out. As I was a fan of the original and the second version. I pretty much give every half hour comedy a chance. I like checking
things out for myself before making a decision, and I like to laugh. I don't let politics get in the way of that. Groupthink is so boring to me.
However, I do not think there is any chance it will be as good without Roseanne. It is going to be a lesser show. The question is how much. They could
easily just use Dan as the Trump voice. The writers are staying the same. But something for sure will be lost. The show will probably end up on my
list of half hour comedies I put up on one TV while I play video games on the other. Two TV's in the living room for the win.
Another aside....How dumb is the marketing department over at ABC. They scrambled so hard to bring the show back in some form because it was the
highest rated show on TV in like three years. They still think they will get the same numbers. They are in denial that Roseanne being a Trump
supporter gave them a big boost. I honestly don't see anyway the third iteration comes in at those same numbers. Doesn't necessarily mean the show
will be bad. It just won't pull the same numbers. Because part of its audience appears to be alienated by giving Roseanne the boot. That is just
reality. Good or bad. It is reality. A chunk of the audience thinks ABC fired her mostly because she was a Trump supporter and that same chunk of
audience wants someone on TV who represents their viewpoint. So they will be tuning out.
