ABC Execs Demand Roseanne Stop Talking About Trump, Her Response Sent SHOCKWAVES Through Studio!

“definitely not”

Published

on

American TV fans were ecstatic when they found out Roseanne would return to regular programming with a new season. Her show was well received, gathering millions of viewers, and hitting hard on political humor while hammering home a few good points in each episode. It didn’t take that long for ABC to come after Roseanne Barr and give her a scathing message about her pro-Trump character. However, the president of ABC, Channing Dungey, didn’t expect to hear the response Roseanne had for him after he demanded that she slow her roll on the political commentary and pro-Trump agenda.

Dungey seems to want Roseanne to stop with the political aspect and resort to strictly comedy – even though political humor is extremely funny and worked very well for her show up until now. Dungey wants the show to lean away from politics for now on. Conservative fans might not like that as much because the millions of fans who were happily watching the show could see their new show faced with a forced agenda to change Roseanne’s show. John Goodman would likely agree that he and Roseanne need to continue doing what worked best to get excellent viewership in the millions.

Don’t let ABC get you down. Roseanne shocked them with a stunning reply that put her fans at ease when she posted this on Twitter.

Fox News provided more details on the demand from ABC: “ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey put the kibosh on “Roseanne” remaining political in the second season – apparently ditching the strategy the network touted only two months ago.

Dungey said that the show will lean away from politics next season during a conference call with reporters as part of the network’s upfront presentation. Upon learning the news, conservative media icon Matt Drudge tweeted, “Corporate cannibals stripping Roseanne of her fun.”

The return of “Roseanne” featured a debut episode in which characters argued about the 2016 election, with the show’s namesake representing the conservative viewpoint. As the season concluded, politics appeared less frequently on the sitcom.

“I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family,” Dungey said during the network’s upfront presentation after the call, according to TheWrap. The site added that Dungey said ABC’s goal is to be “as diverse and as inclusive as possible … across all metrics.”

“I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with ‘Roseanne’ on the air is that it is focusing (on) a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air,” Dungey reportedly said.

The show, starring Roseanne Barr the pro-Trump title character, drew plenty of eyeballs when it premiered on March 27, shocking the industry with over 27 million viewers in Live+7 in delayed ratings. Shortly afterwards, ABC President Ben Sherwood eagerly rolled himself out to The New York Times after the successful return.

At the time, Sherwood claimed that ABC executives had a meeting the morning after the 2016 election about how they could better reach Middle America.

“We looked at each other and said, ‘There’s a lot about this country we need to learn a lot more about, here on the coasts,’” Sherwood told the Times in a feature headline, “‘Roseanne’ Reboot Sprang From ABC’s Heartland Strategy After Trump’s Victory.”

An ABC spokesperson said the network is “definitely not” ditching the heartland strategy when reached by Fox News.”

ABC might want to remember that Roseanne’s show brought millions of viewers to their network and likely increased their ratings on the days that her show aired. Her statistics to open the series this year was stunning, but slowed slightly, although it seemed like her show continued to perform as her fans became loyal viewers as her season went on.

The next season might have the hands of the ABC president grappling their show like a wrestling move, but Roseanne wants her fans to know that she’s not backing down and she will continue to provide as best of a show as possible.

Do you think Roseanne will continue with her political jabs and humor or will she be forced to dial back towards a strictly family based show? What’s wrong with having a little bit of political humor if the ratings continue to do well?

Should Roseanne demand control of her show as long as the ratings are up?

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

Published

on

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.
