Roseanne got an additional episode order
November 13th, 2017 under Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

It seems like the ABC is really liking the episodes that the Roseanne revival is putting out because they ordered an additional episode before it even has a premiere date. According to TV Line that brings the total to 9…and hopefully counting.

I was kind of nervous that the revival would stink, but it seems like that is not the case. Which is a good thing because the first go around of the show is still as relevant and as enjoyable today as it was then.

My prediction is Roseanne will air at 8:30p on Tuesdays with Fresh Off the Boat moving to 9:30p. ABC would be stupid to move The Middle or put the show up against This Is Us. Their other comedy night is solid, so this seems to be the only option. I think. Anything can happen.

BTW this is not the only show to get an additional episode order. ABC ordered 3 more episodes of Kevin (Probably) Saves the World. When it comes to The Mayor, they only asked for 3 additional scripts. Not a good sign for the freshman comedy that needs something I cannot put a finger on.


Does Roseanne insist on sitting on a throne at work?

Roseanne Barr was seen wearing a crown and sitting on a gold throne while on the set of the revival for her hit sitcom, so is that part of her contract? Nope, it was a present from everyone that is part of Roseanne to make her feel like the Domestic Goddess that she is for her 65th birthday. Can you believe she is a senior citizen now? She does not look even close to her age!


Look it is Roseanne’s two Beckys together at last!!!

If you have been waiting decades to actually see Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke together in the same place, your wait is over because it has finally happened. Why? The two Beckys got together with the rest of the Roseanne cast for the revival’s first table read.

While Goranson will be playing Becky Conner (Healy?)*, Chalke is playing a mystery character. How hot would it be her name is also Becky on the show, and she was married to Becky! Then the two Beckys would really be the two Beckys!

No word yet when the 8 episodes will air on ABC, but it will be some time early next year. My prediction is it will be bigger than American Idol because it was the #1 show when it originally aired.

On that note, tomorrow is the show’s 29th birthday and she still looks as fantastic as she did when she was first born. The first round of Roseanne seriously aged well in syndication. It truly is a timeless show, which probably is why it airs so many times on so many networks. The updated version better not let us down. Which I doubt it will.

*No word yet how the sitcom will deal with Glenn Quinn’s death, who played Becky’s husband and David’s brother.


Another spoiler for the Roseanne revival
July 11th, 2017 under Roseanne. [ Comments: 2 ]

It looks like we can just throw out the series finale of Roseanne out with the trash. Not only is Dan alive, but David and Darlene did date, get married and had kids. Yes that is plural.

We met their daughter Harris in the final season (1997) of Roseanne and now TV Line is reporting that the 14-year-old will be part of the revival. Not only will she be 6 years younger than she should be, she will also have a younger brother who is under 10 years old. Things that make you go hmmm?

They will not be the only children in the series, Laurie Metcalf revealed that Jackie’s son Andy and Roseanne and Dan’s 4th child Jerry Garcia will also be part of the show. No word if Mark and Becky’s kid will be part of the show or how they will handle Mark’s character since he Glenn Quinn passed away in 2002.

I am sure we will know more in the coming days because Sara Gilbert Tweeted yesterday that the writer’s room is open for writing. I have to admit I am beyond excited for this revival and I hope they do a great job with it for us fans!


Laurie Metcalfe explain how the Roseanne revival came to be!
June 9th, 2017 under Jimmy Fallon, Roseanne. [ Comments: none ]

Last month, ABC announced that they are bringing Roseanne back for 8 episodes, and yesterday on The Tonight Show Laurie Metcalfe explained to Jimmy Fallon how it happened.

Back in March, John Goodman reunited with Sara Gilbert on The Talk where they recreated a scene on that couch and Julie Chen asked him if he would do a revival of Roseanne. Dan told her, “Oh hell yes!” After they were done taping that show, Gilbert called her castmates and asked them the same question. She got the same answer, so she put on her Executive Producer hat and made some calls. The rest is Hollywood history.

Another thing she confirmed, is that the children, who were born during the sitcoms final seasons will also be part of the revival.

The morale to this story is if you want a revival of your show, then you have to recreate the original to get the updated version like Roseanne did on The Talk and Will & Grace did for Hillary Clinton, who is next?
