ABC Has New Plan To Make ‘Roseanne’ without Roseanne Barr – Here’s Who Will Take The Lead Role

If they try this, there could be major issues such as…

Published

Only three days after ABC fired Roseanne for a racist tweet and then canceled her show, they are now considering keeping the show on the air, but there’s something extremely wrong with what they want to do. They want to air the show without Roseanne. Instead, they want to focus on her daughter, Darlene. Darlene is not the draw here; Roseanne and hubby are. Some are saying the network wanted to get rid of Roseanne for financial reasons as well. You mean, you have the number one rated show out there that is a cash cow and you don’t want to pay the star that made the show? ABC deserves to go broke and is doing a fine job of it.

Variety magazine is saying that insiders at ABC are reporting that the head honchos want to re-brand “Roseanne” by eliminating Barr’s character and refocusing the plot on the character’s daughter, Darlene. They also cautioned that reviving “Roseanne” could stir up additional drama for the network. However, Roseanne Barr has a contract with the network and if they go on without her, they have to buy her out. “One big problem to overcome is the fact that Barr has a significant financial interest in the series, and there is concern that a new iteration that would benefit her financially would be a non-starter for everyone involved,” Variety noted.

Fox should buy out the contract and entice Roseanne and company over to their network. If Bill Maher can get away with comparing President Trump to an orangutan and not get fired, then Roseanne should be forgiven and get to run with her hit show. The truly ironic part of all this is the reason that ABC wants so desperately to bring “Roseanne” back to life is that they owe a ton of money to the show’s actors, writers and producers. It’s all contractually obligated. “Key actors are said to have a minimum 10-episode guarantee for Season 2, which had an initial order of 13 episodes,” Variety reported. “The highest echelon of writers and producers also have some minimum episodic guarantees.” Oh, this is getting good.

What ABC doesn’t get is if they try this, the ratings could plummet because less people will likely watch it. The show will have lost its appeal to the common viewer out there and could be just another liberal social justice lecture. Many fans are already vowing to boycott ABC over their double standards and blatant hypocrisy.

Black political commentator Larry Elder is arguing that Barr’s “racist” remark about former President Obama’s senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, wasn’t actually racist, let alone worthy of her show being canceled. Sure, it was a bad joke, but Roseanne says she didn’t even know Jarrett was black. Once again, Bill Maher comes to mind. In a tweet posted Wednesday, Elder noted that HBO’s liberal comedian Bill Maher, who is the host of the HBO talk show “Real Time with Bill Maher,” once suggested President Trump is “the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan.” And he’s called Trump an ape many times.

In fact, during Maher’s opening monologue yesterday, he said that he had to do another segment of “Explaining Jokes to Idiots” and pointed out that there were four “key facts” that made his ape jokes different than Barr’s tweet. “One, Trump is an orangutan,” Maher snarked. “Two, white people have not been subjected to a racist trope comparing them to apes for hundreds of years.” Maher’s third explanation was that his joke was in response to Trump’s 2013 accusations that President Obama was not born in America and called for the release of the president’s birth certificate. Maher offered Trump $5 million to provide his own birth certificate, which he did. Maher wouldn’t pay up and Trump sued him for it. “And four, I’ve already been fired by ABC,” Maher said, referring to his “Politically Incorrect” program, which aired from 1993 to 2002.

HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” remains on the air despite political jokes that are vilely aimed at President Trump and his daughter Ivanka. “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” a late-night TBS show whose host who described the President’s daughter as a “feckless c**t” this week is also still on the air. MSNBC’s Joy Reid who pushed 9/11 as a government conspiracy, homophobic slurs and a wide range of other horrid behavior, apologized and is also still on the air. But Roseanne Barr makes an ill-considered joke that Maher has already made and she is fired and shunned for it after she apologizes. The only difference here is that Roseanne went after someone on the left. “@therealroseanne makes the same joke about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett–and Barr’s show gets cancelled,” Elder tweeted. Get it now?

Americans are noticing the double standard and they are furious over it. Fox has picked up Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing” that ABC canceled because it was too conservative and it will be a monster hit for them. If they have any sense, they’ll go after Roseanne as well and tell the double standard, witch hunt brigade to pound sand.

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire

Published

TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.

The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.

In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.

Here is more on this via Hot Air:

“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:

President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.

Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”

The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:

Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.

“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …

A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.

Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.

Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.

All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.

But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”

What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.

Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.

Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme

“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”

Published

on

Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.

It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time.  Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.

Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.

The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.

Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.

“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”

Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”

In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.

Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.

Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.

Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”

Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.

Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.

If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”

Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
