Roseanne Barr: ‘Press Has Misrepresented’ ABC Chief’s Remarks About Less-Political Season 2

Roseanne Barr has shot down any notion that the next season of “Roseanne” will be less political than this one.

“ABC has been nothing but supportive to me and my show and all of our ideas,” the comedian and broadcast TV star said on Wednesday. “The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season.”

The executive she’s referring to is ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey, who told reporters a day earlier: “I think [‘Roseanne’] going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family.”

That quote came during a conference call with the media ahead of ABC and Freeform’s annual upfront presentation to advertisers, which is when networks debut their new series and fall schedules. It also made many headlines — including at TheWrap — and Barr believes that part is on us.

ABC has been nothing but supportive to me and my show and all of our ideas. The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season.

— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 16, 2018

The debut episode of the “Roseanne” revival revolved around the titular character’s clash with the rest of her family over her politics, lining up the character with Barr’s own position as an outspoken Trump supporter. That juxtaposition continued throughout the comeback season, creating both comedy and drama for the Conners.

ABC Fall Schedule: ‘The Kids Are Alright’ to Follow ‘Roseanne’; ‘FOTB’ and ‘Speechless’ Sent to Friday

ABC unveiled its Fall 2018 schedule on Tuesday ahead of its annual upfront ad sales event. Among the highlights, freshman sitcom “The Kids Are Alright” scored the highly coveted “Roseanne” lead-in. “Single Parents” will follow “Modern Family,” while “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Speechless” have been banished to Fridays.

Additionally, “Dancing With the Stars: Juniors” and the newly retitled “Alec Baldwin Show” will air on Sundays.

First-year dramas “The Rookie” will close Tuesdays and “A Million Little Things” is set to cap off Wednesdays.

“American Housewife” and “Child Support” fans will want to note their new time slots.

Interestingly enough, “Goldbergs” spinoff “Schooled” will have to wait until midseason, which means it likely won’t be paired with (at least much of) the original Adam Goldberg sitcom.

“We enter the new season bolstered by success and the stability that it affords us,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said on Tuesday. “The new shows we unveil today strengthen an already-vibrant schedule of some of the best television has to offer. These shows, with their compelling characters and aspirational storytelling, will keep our momentum going.”

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Season 6: Fans Will Have to Wait Until Midseason for NBC Premiere

‘Roseanne’ Revival Renewed by ABC

ABC has picked up the “Roseanne” revival for another season, the network announced on Friday.

The news comes as little surprise after the premiere of the new, 10th season bowed Tuesday to massive ratings, besting even the original series finale nearly 20 years ago.

“We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes. The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can’t wait to see what the ‘Roseanne’ team has in store for next year,” ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in a statement.

The two-part premiere was watched by 18.2 million total viewers, making it the most-watched scripted program on ABC since 2008.

The unexpected success even caught the attention of President Trump, who counts star and executive producer Roseanne Barr as one of his supporters and dialed her up to personally deliver his congratulations.

In an interview with the New York Times on Wednesday, Dungey attributed the show’s success to its realistic portrayal of a blue-collar family. The show over-performed in Middle America, with Tulsa, Oklahoma, counting as its biggest market. Los Angeles and New York weren’t even in the top 20.

“We had spent a lot of time looking for diverse voices in terms of people of color and people from different religions and even people with a different perspective on gender,” she said. “But we had not been thinking nearly enough about economic diversity and some of the other cultural divisions within our own country. That’s been something we’ve been really looking at with eyes open since that time.”

The cast from the show’s original run returned for the new go-round, including Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Michael Fishman and Lecy Goranson. Sarah Chalke, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey also star.

“Roseanne” is produced by Carsey-Werner Television. Barr and Gilbert executive produce with Tom Werner, Bruce Helford, Whitney Cummings and Tony Hernandez.

“Roseanne” airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.

TheWrap sat through about 1,000 panels from what feels like 100 platforms over a legitimate 13 days (and attended probably a dozen parties, where we consumed [REDACTED] drinks). All told, we wrote roughly a million stories.

We can boil that down further though. In recognition of the new year, below are 18 things we learned from the first (of two) TCA of ’18.

Paige Davis Has a Different Design Sense Than Joanna Gaines
Don’t expect to see a bunch of shiplap on the revived “Trading Spaces”: Paige Davis isn’t a fan of Joanna Gaines’ (HGTV’s “Fixer Upper”) favorite wood siding. The TLC personality made her negative feelings on the trend known while occupying the stage, eliciting laughter from the folks that got that message loud and clear.

“The Simpsons” Will Address “The Problem With Apu”
“The Simpsons” will address documentary film “The Problem with Apu” within “the context of the show,” Hank Azaria said.

“The idea that anybody, young or old, past or present, was bullied or teased or worse based on the character of Apu … it’s distressing,” the voice behind Indian immigrant Apu Nahasapeemapetilon said. “The idea that anybody was marginalized based on it or had a hard time was very upsetting to me personally and professionally.”

Mira Sorvino Is Finally Busy
Mira Sorvino says Harvey Weinstein had her blacklisted after she rejected his advances — but her phone’s been ringing lately.

“I have to say the general atmosphere since those allegations came out, those revelations, there seems to be a lot of goodwill towards me in the entertainment business and I’ve been getting offers,” she told reporters.

Sorvino is starring on AT&T Audience Network’s “Condor” and just joined Season 3 of Sony Crackle’s “StartUp.”

Why Kelly Clarkson Chose “The Voice” over “Idol”
The honorable Kelly Clarkson wants all to rise. The first ever American Idol would rather be a coach than a judge, so choosing “The Voice” over the show that made her a star was a no-brainer.

Basically, she didn’t want to feel “sh—y” about herself, in Clarkson’s words.

Why “Rise” Turned a Gay Character Straight
NBC’s “Rise” is based on a true-life story of drama teacher Lou Volpe, a gay man, but when the drama premieres in March, the lead character played by Josh Radnor will be a straight man.

“We took [the book] as an inspiration, and then I really felt like I needed to make it my own story,” showrunner Jason Katims said. “With Lou’s family life and Lou’s family itself, there’s a lot of re-imagination. Not just in terms of gay or straight, but in terms of the family structure.”

Don’t Hold Your Breath for More “Twin Peaks”
Guys, it took David Lynch like 25 years to bring “Twin Peaks” to Showtime for a revived run. So don’t expect it to just be another year or two before he does it again.

Still: “The door at Showtime is always open for Mark [Frost, co-creator] and for David — for ‘Twin Peaks’ or anything else they want to talk about,” the premium-TV channel’s Gary Levine said.

“Atlanta” Season 2 isn’t called “‘Atlanta’ Season 2.” We’ll explain. The sophomore run of Donald Glover’s FX comedy is officially titled “Atlanta Robbin’ Season.” Why? We’ll also explain that. Better yet, Stephen Glover can.

“Robbin’ Season, for most of you that I guess don’t know, is a time in Atlanta right before Christmastime and New Year’s,” the executive producer and writer said. “Basically, a bunch of crime happens in the city right during that time.”
