EXCLUSIVE ABC Will Yank Tonight’s “Roseanne” Rerun, Replace it with Episode of “The Middle”


There will no more reruns of the “Roseanne” reboot.

I’m told that tonight’s rerun, with Johnny Galecki, has been yanked. It will be replaced by an episode of  “The Middle.” It will just happen without explanation.

The rest of the “Roseanne” rebooted episodes will be relegated to history. They’re not coming back to ABC.

See my syndication story. If you don’t have them on tape, “Roseanne” may vanish like the lost city of Atlantis.

What a stunning turn of events, all in less than a day. How sad for the kids in the cast of “Roseanne,” all of whom deserved better than this.

Otherwise all mention of “Roseanne” has been scrubbed from the ABC website.
