Press reporting Roseanne to dial back pro-Trump humor, Roseanne says press misrepresented
Fox news is reporting that ABC is set to dial back the pro-Trump humor on the exceedingly popular Roseanne show. Roesanne is one of the few sitcoms or TV shows period that have a pro-Trump message and it should come as no surprise that ratings are very high for the show.
“I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family,” Dungey said during the network’s upfront presentation after the call, according to TheWrap. The site added that Dungey said ABC’s goal is to be “as diverse and as inclusive as possible … across all metrics.”
“I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with ‘Roseanne’ on the air is that it is focusing (on) a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air,” Dungey reportedly said.
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 says in a tweet “ABC has been nothing but supportive to me and my show and all our ideas. The press has misrepresented what ABC President said about our new season.
After the success of Roseanne ABC may be regretting canceling the pro-conservative Last Man Standing. The Tim Allen sitcom was picked up by Fox for season 7. Hopefully liberals will realize soon that America does not hate Trump as much as the press and Hollywood does.
