But Fox TV Group chairman and CEO Gary Newman and Walden said the show didn't have the right companion, which is why they passed on reviving it a year ago, THR reported. Noting the cancellation of "Marvel's Inhumans", Kimmel said that ABC "did something remarkable. we managed to have the only unsuccessful project with the word "Marvel" in the title". When a reporter asked if she had any concerns about how Barr's own personal politics color the way the comedy is perceived, she responded: "I do think that there's a little bit of that, yes". Back when the original series had a results show, Dancing with the Stars would sometimes feature future pro dancers performing routines.
Finally, she said that "Roseanne" and its ratings success had little effect on ABC's plans for the fall, as the show premiered after the broadcaster had ordered all of their pilots.
"If you don't know me, I'm probably a big deal to your mother", a self-deprecating Fillion joked to advertisers during ABC's presentation at Lincoln Center. He took a swing at departed Shonda Rhimes, joking that he and his colleagues "hope she rots in hell". I think we still had a really great season.
While ABC and NBC have found comedy reboot success with, respectively, "Roseanne" and "Will & Grace", CBS Entertainment President Kelly Kahl acknowledged it's not a slam-dunk. He also confirmed that Comcast is now making a bid for Fox, reportedly a cash offer worth $60 billion, saying, "We got peacock-blocked" and comparing Comcast to "the surprise ex-boyfriend who shows up on "The Bachelorette" right before she's about to get engaged". We decided that the body of the show speaks for itself. In the very first few scenes of the first episode, it was revealed that Roseanne Conner was a Trump supporter, and that she'd become estranged from her sister, Jackie, over their politics, having not spoken to each other for a year (they patched things up). "Grand Hotel" from executive producer Eva Longoria is about a family-run hotel in Miami Beach and stars Demian Bichir and Roselyn Sanchez.
Saturdays are for football, while Sundays see the brand-new Dancing with the Stars: Juniors at 8 p.m. Shark Tank is sandwiched between the new Juniors spin-off and The Alec Baldwin Show, which is slated to close out the night at 10 p.m.
One of them, "Alex, Inc.", starring Zach Braff of "Scrubs" fame, barely had a chance to introduce itself since its March debut.
Would Roseanne still be as politically charged in the second season? "I haven't seen this yet, but it sounds like it isn't so much a dating show as a thinly veiled sex trafficking operation", Kimmel said. "We felt like the writers were simply tipping the hat to those shows, and it certainly wasn't meant to offend".
