ABC is reportedly looking into rebooting “Roseanne,” but this time the series will be focused on Sara Gilbert.

According to TMZ, ABC is seeing if there is a possibility of “re-branding the show and focusing on” Gilbert’s character, Darlene Conner, rather than Roseanne.

Fox News has reached out to ABC for comment.

TMZ reports that Gilbert has been contacting her “Roseanne” cast members to see how much interest they have in a potential reboot just in case the network moves forward.

One person who may be onboard is John Goodman. Goodman, who plays Roseanne’s husband and Gilbert’s father on the comedy, is reportedly “very interested.”

Gilbert and Goodman’s reps did not immediately return Fox News’ requests for comment.

In addition, Tom Werner, the producer behind “Roseanne,” is also involved in the reboot efforts, reports TMZ.

“Roseanne” was canceled on Tuesday just hours after star Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about former President Obama’s aide Valerie Jarrett.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey said in a statement on Tuesday that the network would not be producing the show’s second season.

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” Dungey told Fox News. (edited)

The news came after Barr went into emergency damage-control mode following a politically charged tweet she sent linking Chelsea Clinton to liberal donor George Soros and a racially charged tweet saying Jarrett, who is African-American and born in Iran, is like the “muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.”

    Sara Gilbert has No personality at all. And her daughter and son are worse. An angry kid with a brother that wears dresses. Oh boy, I can’t wait to see that fail.
    Mr Dungey, you need to put on your big boy panties and apologize to America and Roseanne. You jumped on this so fast because you were offended. Not because we were. It was a joke and no more offensive than what is said on the view every day. Roseanne is no worse than Colbert, Kimmel, Goldberg or Bejar. To cut off all of these people from their rerun money is crazy. But changing up a number one show is even worse. It will be dead in the water before anybody gets a paycheck. Your crazy. Sell the whole show to another network. Let someone else reap the benefit of your ignorance.

    No!!!no!!! No!!!! We want Roseanne!! ABC says she isn’t up to their STANDARDS. !!!!!???? But how is The View on ABC??? Whoopi, Joy Behr and their co-horts live and breathe nastiness and liberalism and are vicious about everything !! Why ABC???? You are biased!!

  • Pam Hathcox says:

    Nope, still not watching ABC. Either Roseanne is back or ABC is gone too. As long as the View and other horrible shows meet ABC’s standards, ABC does not meet mine. “E” for effort, though.

  • Nico Ofsnagel says:

    Roseanne deserved some loyalty from the cast members she made into TV celebs. She got NONE! The show is now dead to me because they and ABC, in an effort to appease the PC police, screwed up!

  • Lori Young says:

    Absolutely will NOT watch!!!

  • Carrie says:

    1st off, I won’t watch it without Ms. Barr and secondly, I kind of agree with her. Ms Jarrett does look like a character from planet of the apes. It used to be we could laugh at ourselves.

  • Glenda says:

    Used to be that ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ (audience that buys the shows products)liked a program (movie, etc;) and that’s what we got. Now it seems some liberal behind a desk chooses the programing (or whatever) for us, depending on his/her political affiliations and likes.

    I’m a ‘big girl’ now and able to make those choices for myself, thank you very much.

    They can put anything on the screen with anyone they like and call it ‘whatever’ if it pleases them. This after all is still America and we each get to choose.

    I choose ‘ROSEANNE’ doing the ‘ROSEANNE’ show and doing it her way or I’m watching something on another channel any buying someone else’s advertised products.

    Love you Roseanne.

    Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

    Published

    on

    Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

    Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

    In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

    “We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

    She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

    “When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

    The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

    “There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

    Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

    “I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

    Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

    “[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

    Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

    Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

    “I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

    “I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

However, what every Democrat in that room forgot was that they too had used the word previously in political speech.

    The montage went on for 13 minutes. (The video montage starts at 7:10 timeframe.)

    WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

    Published

    on

    President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

    Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

    At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

    House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

    During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

    But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

    Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

    On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

    White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

    Published

    on

    The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

    “The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

    “During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

    White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

    “TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

    “In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

    Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

    “The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

    New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

    Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
