After well over a year of hype & postponements, Roseanne is finally tonight. Unfortunately thanks to all that constant hype, even if it's good, most will be disappointed because they tuned in with high, & unrealistic expectations.

She's a devoted Trump supporter, who's character also plays one, so this will either be interesting or a total disaster. Lets not forget the original show got canceled because it got stupid. She was no longer a novelty, but a fool & nut case in desperate need of therapy.

Has anybody seen any of her recent work? Nobody will touch it.

Ok I just finished watching Rosanne and the young boy who plays Mark is very talented. He delivers his lines like a natural and gets along well with Sara Gilbert (his mom). I can say I did get tired of the original show after awhile and I may only watch a few of the new ones but it seemed to be struggling. Time will tell if it will make it or not. I will Google to see who the young boy was and what other shows he was in but he did make the character believable. Thanks for the info Betty and Andy for the cute pic.

I had to take a nap after dinner so missed it. I breathe better with my COPD at nights & overnight when pollution, ozone, & humidity is the lowest, & the air is cooler. Also indoor pollutants from the other tenants in the building from their cooking, cleaning, showers, & laundry is less at night. My DSL internet connection & our web servers are faster overnight too.

So I'm a night-owl. But the phone woke us up way too early this morning. The kitties & I couldn't fall back to sleep afterwards. Didn't recognize the number, so didn't answer. A quick lookup of the number later revealed it originated from India, with reports that they're fake callers claiming to be from Time/warner-spectrum offering a great "deal". I'm sure they would ask for your credit card number or personal info.

As a former dance & nightclub DJ/VJ, & band tech, I was used to being up some nights anyway. But even as a building engineer at my day job for 16 years, & a smaller place for 2 more years, I often had to be at work by 4-6am. So I would have to get up at 2-4am to get there on time. I was never one of those people to get up & rush out the door for work. I enjoyed some quiet or personal time & meditation before going to a job. With pets in the house, they enjoyed the time together before I'm gone 6-12 hours. So I actually loved getting up at least 2 hours before I had to be at work so I can have some pleasant quality time before a job. Starting work at 4am had advantages. If it was only an 8 hour day, I might be able to leave by noon! Even a 6am job could mean I might be done by 2pm. I may have even packed some snacks so I didn't have to take a lunch hour, or would rush to eat as soon as I was done for the day.

Anyway, I just downloaded the first 2 episodes of the TV show to watch later. I'll probably compress them to run in our private viewing section here for those who missed it.

I just saw it this morning. Watching it with low expectations, it was OK, compared to most of the crap on TV these days. As expected, after being over-hyped for over a year, many were disappointed with it who tuned in with high expectations.

I'm reading quite a few who simply refused to watch it because Roseanne & the character she plays is pro-trump. That makes them as bad as many Trump supporters... always tuning in 1 news source, opinion, & tuning out anything from the other side of the fence or that they disagree with. You won't know the neighbor on one side is starving, while the neighbor on the other side is picking pockets if you refuse to look.

I always make a point to get my news & information from many sources so I can form my own opinion rather than have it manipulated by them. I prefer to think for myself rather than be told how & what to think.

The show, typical of many sitcoms got way overboard with the canned laughter button, blasting a laugh track over the speakers. These weren't just fake laugh tracks of a few chuckles either. It was hysterical, rolling in the aisles, loud laughter every few lines. There are a few shows that do this, that I just can't watch because the laugh track in so unbearably annoying, & blasting out after every damn line... not just after a funny joke.

This show would have been much more enjoyable with less or no laugh-tracks at all.

Most of Roseanne's performance a mix of bad & good acting. At some points it sounded like she was just reciting lines, other times she seemed to be say them as if she was doing a stand-up comedy show rather than acting. There were a few times she did actually do a good act though, so she does know how to, if she tries or is in the right mood. For all the time this show took, & all the postponements, I expected better from her.

Laurie Metcalf really over-acted & over emphasized her former character, Jackie. The character seemed way out of kilt, & made me uncomfortable with the new way she tried to portray her. Perhaps she got a bit carried away with it.

Most of the other actors did seem to do pretty well at their job, & were professional with their acting... Including the new kid, Ames McNamara who plays the crossdressing Mark. This comes as a surprise as he has almost no previous on-screen experience except for a brief part in an obscure cable TV show, At Home with Amy Sedaris back in November.

Today's reviews of the show just seem to praise that it got very high viewer market-share ratings rather than comment much about the content or quality. This thing was hyped to death for well over a year, & postponed numerous times. So it makes sense that a lot would tune in by the time it finally got around to airing. The show was good enough. Mostly it was lots of cans of worms & controversy than a true sitcom. Hopefully after some of the real reviews start pouring in the show will improve.

If I recall, The Gomer Pyle, Beverly Hillbillies, & Andy Griffith reunion shows had high market-share viewer ratings. But they didn't grow beyond those first reunion shows. So high "market" ratings are pointless for the premier of a reunion show, that was hyped a lot before it aired.

Also you won't be able to see this on ABC or CTV for free if you missed an episode. You have to pay a subscription service to see them if you missed the airing, or hope you remember to catch it on a day it reruns some summer. Many wanted to catch it, so they don't have to pay to subscribe to a service later to see it.

I will be running a low bandwith copy of it in our private viewing section soon, but if you want the sparkling super-HD version you will have to pay a service if you missed the airing.

Also coming up soon, are the past 2 episodes of Young Sheldon, & The Big Bang comedy series in our private viewing section if you missed them. They don't rerun in order in the summer, & in some countries or regions, the reruns in syndication on other channels don't run the recent past 2 years of episodes. They want you to get a subscription service to see them, if you missed them when they aired.

In the meantime, here's the only other on-screen performance of Ames McNamara, from "At Home with Amy Sedaris" back in November.

Looking at the high TV market share rating of Roseanne last night, one has to remember there were no big high rated shows competing against it at that time slot. Here's the 8pm listings of yesterday out of the channels I get with my TV antenna (church, info, sports, & commercial channels blocked).

Yes, you can get a lot of channels with an ordinary cheap antenna without cable for free.

Yes Betty, I will give it a chance but I was a bit underwhelmed by it.  Laurie Metcalf always was an over the top actor and is the same in Young Sheldon and Big Bang but she is likable and the show deserves another look for sure. I spotted a commercial for Young Sheldon yesterday where he comes home from an Audition saying he got the lead part. When asked what play they were doing he said Annie so his character will be dressing as a girl also in future episodes. I don't watch TV often so I may not see this one. I too am a night owl and have been since high school when I always worked nights after school and summer jobs. When I started my working life in 69 it was late nights at the Royal York Hotel and also later at my more permanent job it was afternoons and late nights with lot's of overtime so I slept most days away. It took me awhile to change over after I got full time days but still lot's of overtime. When I look back I realize I spent a good portion of my life working and in some ways it contributed to my poor health now. Still that was the hand we were dealt and I was lucky to have a full time job for most of my life and a few sidelines as well. Many guys I went to school with have had a tough go of it most of their lives but some just expected to be handed a paycheck for very little in return. Well I got a little off topic here so I will end now.

Hi,

Video interview with Ames McNamara, the boy on Roseanne. He's very articulate and natural, a normal little boy.

For those who missed the new Roseanne episodes, or can't get them, & don't want to schedule your time around when they re-run, I also posted the first 8 episodes of the series. I've combined the 19-21 minute episodes to make them into longer shows.

The crossdressing kid doesn't appear in episodes 3-5, so I've group those together into a single long episode. He returns in episode 6.

They're in our TV section of our private viewing area.

Roseanne Canceled!
« Reply #19 on: May 29, 2018, 06:41:35 PM »
Well, that didn't last long. As I predicted last year, when the revival of the Roseanne TV was announced, it's been canceled. I praise ABC for doing a good job making sure the show didn't go too far & wasn't too bigoted. Unfortunately although they were able to control the show's content a bit, they had no control over the star's bigoted life... a devoted Trump supporter.

Roseanne in a tweet said former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett looked like the Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby.

Hours later, ABC canceled Ms. Barr’s show. The sudden cancellation of a hit show with some of the highest ratings for a new series in years stunned an industry.

According to two Disney insiders who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe company matters, there was more at stake than just a hit show. Disney has been widely praised in recent years as a leader in efforts to combat racial stereotypes through its movies and TV series.

Roseanne dismissed accusations that the comment was racist, defending it as just a joke. That's the problem with most racists. They don't even know they're racists. To even think up, & say a thing like that, thinking it was a funny joke makes them racist, but they don't know it. They say they were just "kidding around". To joke that a top adviser to Obama looks like they descended from a Muslim monkey, is extremely insulting & racist.

That's like Trump's "Locker Room" humor isn't really funny unless you're a filthy pig, but they don't know they're a pig.
