Roseanne Update: Sara Gilbert Throws in with Network Hoping for Reboot: “I agree with ABC”


Hey, Sara Gilbert’s not stupid. She could use $300,000 an episode for a rebooted “Roseanne.” So yesterday on “The Talk” Sara threw in with ABC and declared they made the right decision to cancel the show.

Can there be a “Roseanne” without Roseanne? I think it will be “AfterMASH” or “Archie Bunker’s Place” or “The Golden Palace” or — you get the drift. They will never overcome the absence of Roseanne. And Barr has a financial interest, too.

But here’s Sara, giving it her all.
