Roseanne tv show photo


Roseanne was one of the most successful series of the late '80s and early '90s. It always received great ratings and was awarded with 4 Emmys, 3 Golden Globes and 4 American Comedy Awards. The show ran from 1988 to 1997 and ended with one of the most original (and confusing for some) endings in TV history.

'Roseanne' Spin-off Confirmed For This Fall

Less than a month after cancelling the Roseanne revival, ABC has confirmed that a spin-off featuring the rest of the cast will take its place this fall in the 8:00pm Tuesday time slot. The move had been expected for some time, as the network was looking for a way to continue the success of the Roseannecomeback, which impressively became the top comedy on television.
Expected to be called The Conners, the new series will take place following "a sudden turn of events" that will explain the removal of Roseanne from the show. The rest of the family will continue to tackle daily working-class life in Lanford - only in a completely new way.
Expect the feel of the new show to remain mostly the same, as the existing writing and producing team will also transition over to The Conners. ABC has ordered 10 episodes of the show, which is down from the 13 episodes ordered for Season 2 of Roseanne. Look for the premiere later this year.

ABC Renews 'Roseanne' Revival

ABC announced today that its revival of Roseanne has been renewed for another season, which will be the show's 11th overall. The news comes as no surprise after the comedy's well-received return to television earlier this week.
In its first two episodes back, which aired in a one-hour block on Tuesday night, Roseanne surpassed all expectations by drawing a massive audience of 18 million viewers with an impressive 5.2 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic. Those numbers are almost unheard of nowadays, especially for broadcast comedies.
Being that the show was one of the network's most popular sitcoms of the 1990s, it makes sense that its return with the entire original main cast would draw a lot of interest. While it is yet to be seen how much momentum from its premiere it can retain, the revival's strong start was enough to earn it at least another season.
