'Roseanne' May Move 'Away From Politics' in Season 2, ABC President Says

'Roseanne' May Move 'Away From Politics' in Season 2, ABC President Says

In addition, ABC launched the season's most popular new drama, "The Good Doctor".

'Our company is in the midst of negotiations to buy Fox. Dancing with the Stars will remain in its Monday night slot, while the Juniors spinoff will air on Sundays.

So, what about next season, the sitcom's 12th? As Disney already owns 30 percent of Hulu, absorbing Fox's 30 percent stake will give it majority control. It was consistent. The network with the most comedies was the No. 1 network. On ABC, the show has averaged about 10 million viewers an episode.

Barr was the first person on stage, following a taped opening in which ABC and Freeform talent auditioned in front of American Idol's judges for the chance to open the event.

"No one was expecting Roseanne to be a big hit". The show, Herdman said, might have helped fill a hunger for programming that features characters from Middle America. "We got peacock-blocked, is what happened". "But we don't want to do ourselves a disservice by neglecting this audience".

Will "Roseanne" ditch the pro-Trump humor next year?

She reiterated that the network tries to be "as diverse and inclusive as possible" across all metrics, from race and gender to religion and economics. After quickly clarifying that he has nothing to do with Roseanne's controversial Twitter account, Sherwood used the Lincoln Center upfront presentation to wax on about the success of Barr's working-class comedy.

So, for those who are wondering, the second season will move "away from politics and be more focused on family", Ms Dungey added.

Though on the call, ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey pointed out that the pilot featured the most politics, as Roseanne faced off with her liberal sister, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf).

Ms Dungey defended the Roseanne writers and said they were just expressing the title character's views.

ABC will program 10 comedies every week in the fall, spread out across three nights.
