Roseanne Barr, the President Trump-supporting comedienne, has the last laugh in her public months-long battle with ABC executives, in which Barr has not really been battling despite the media and Hollywood battling with her.
Barr probably knew that common sense would win out and the American people would not embrace “The Conners,” an ill-fated “Roseanne” spin-off that was more “Ropers” than “Jeffersons” — that is, if Mr. Roper had died from a tragic opioid overdose in a Very Special Episode involving Valerie Jarrett.
“Frasier” worked because in the first episode Frasier Crane did not murder Sam Malone. For instance.
ABC president Channing Dungey is out, according to Variety.
