What do you think of ABC's plan to put on a Conner family TV show (so John Goodman and the rest don't lose their jobs) without the main star?

Is there any chance? I hated AfterMash, the Bradys and to some extent even Archi Bunker's place.Think Community without Chevy or Chico and the Man without Freddie Prinze or Top Gear without Jeremy Clarkson or Laverne and Shirley without Shirley. Even two and a half men couldn't really survive no Charlie Sheen and the Office no Steve Carrell. The only reason they lasted more than a year is they were so high rated before.

Will "The Conners" make it? (I'd call it "Roseanne" with a strikethrough.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

I'll check it out. I watched the reboot because I watched the original as a kid. I continued to watch because I think John Goodman is great.

It could be colossal failure, but I like that ABC is giving it a try.

Community was just fine without Chevy but he was just one part of many on that show. You forget about Valerie becoming The Hogan Family and going on for a good run as a milquetoast sitcom of the era. I don't know if something like Frasier would count but that brings up all sorts of spinoffs like Joey and yeah that's a line of debate not worth pursuing.

Given that they resurrected Dan it really doesn't matter what they do with Roseanne's character since she can be brought back just as arbitrarily if she and ABC ever make amends.

If they're only doing 9 or 10 episodes again that should be short enough to maintain interest, and between Goodman, Metcalf, and Gilbert, the cast has enough power that it won't be hurt. The show survived two Beckies. It'll be fine.

John Goodman being the lead is a better option anyway. Roseanne's reboot showed the character of Roseanne was no longer the same as the actress. There was some good ideas in the reboot like the drug addiction, but they were mixed with a lot of borderline racist shit that the character of Roseanne would never say.

Just recast the role of Roseanne Conner with Sarah Chalke

George Michael weighed his options. Maeby had chastised him for not taking risks, and what would be a bigger risk than perpetuating a lie about software just to ignite the passions of a woman? Of course it would be a lie, and since Maeby wouldn't know it was a lie, he wouldn't appear to be taking a risk. Perhaps the bigger risk was to tell his father he was lying, that he came up with it because he wanted his father to leave so he could enjoy what remained of his senior year. After all, he wondered, wouldn't that be the course of action taken by an overtly sexual man, a man who owns a pair of matador pants? He had not responded now for 41 seconds according to his unfailing internal clock, and it was time to come clean.

Can't wait to see if they kill off Rosanne, and if they do, will the producers be a little vindictive with how she dies. Like maybe having her be trampled to death at a Trump rally.

That would be awesome.

I know it's the mental equivalent of cotton candy, but I enjoy mental floss once in a while. We had been watching this for a couple of weeks when we got to last night's episode. Turns out Frank (one of the better players in this crop)
