  • 'Roseanne' may move 'from politics' to 'family' in season two

ABC's fall 2018-19 lineup sees Roseanne leading off Tuesday nights and newcomer The Alec Baldwin Show set for Sundays.

JOHN That was quite the "Roseanne" show, wasn't it?

"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."

ABC embarks on a new season without Rhimes, the creative force behind such shows as "Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal". At one point Sherwood stopped himself, telling the packed theater that if anyone was playing a drinking game that hinged on how many times the word Roseanne was uttered, well, "You're welcome".

The presentation, which for the first time combined pitches from Disney and ABC, was indeed montage-heavy. I can honestly say on behalf of everyone here at ABC who worked with her for so long, we hope she rots in hell...

The Spin | It was Rita Ferro's second turn at the upfront as head of a new-ish integrated ad sales department. "I, along with the talented writers, wonderful crew and terrific actors, would definitely entertain the idea of bringing the show back as there is so much gas left in the tank, more to be said, and laughs to be had". She then unveiled a series of impossible-to-fact-check statistics about ABC and Freeform's effectiveness. It bombed, earning less worldwide than a two-day special release of Warner Animation's Batman: The Killing Joke made domestically, and the poor reviews - it earned just 10% on Rotten Tomatoes - likely contributed to soft ratings as well.

Still, many viewers have taken issue with ABC for allowing "Roseanne" to be so overtly political (the reboot's season premiere saw Donald Trump-supporting Roseanne at odds with sister Jackie, who's a p-y hat-wearing Hilary Clinton backer) while "Black-ish" has been censored. Fans probably want to know if the judges from the original version and hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews will somehow be able to pull double duty on both shows.

"The reason Fox is calling [shorter commercial breaks] Jazz Pods - they wanted to find a way to shorten commercial breaks and appropriate black culture at the same time". I'll tell you what it is: It's an endorsement of dismissiveness and disregard.

On deck for later in the season are returning series "For the People" and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", as well as reality offerings "American Idol" and "The Bachelor".

The Favorite | Roast-master Jimmy Kimmel returned to huge laughs with a string of digs at his networks and its rivals.

"I have to admit I'm excited about Murphy Brown. And they'll be damned if they give it to them". "It's refreshing to see anything brown on CBS", he added to reported groans. His barbs were not reserved for ABC rivals. "It's just that one of our new ideas was to Google, 'What were our old ideas?'"
