Will Fox Pick Up 'Roseanne'? After ABC Cancels Show, Fans Say They'll Watch on a Different Channel

Although Roseanne got the green light for Season 2 days after the revival series premiered in March, a second season will never air on ABC after the network pulled the plug on the show.

But that doesn't necessarily mean viewers will never get a glimpse of the Conner family again, does it?

In light of Roseanne Barr's racist tweet comparing former Obama-era aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape on Tuesday, ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey announced in a statement Rosanne was being canceled, effective immediately. "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show," Dungey said.

Plenty of people on Twitter praised ABC's quick and heavy-handed response towards Barr, who, in a since-deleted tweet, suggested Jarrett was what the world would get if "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby." However, some of the show's supporters were less than thrilled to learn the series, which was the most-watched broadcast of the season, would not return to ABC with the promised second season.

Their disappointment over the cancelation caused some to suggest for Roseanne should find a home on a new network, one that was more in line with Barr's conservative and views.

Fans suggested for Fox to pull a move like NBC. They picked up former Fox show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. The comedy was dropped by Fox in early May, and after a wave of support from viewers on social media, NBC decided to pick up the show (31 hours after it was canceled) for a 13-episode Season 6.

It's a move Fox has made in the past. The network recently announced it would air Tim Allen's former ABC sitcom, Last Man Standing, as a part of its 2018-2019 primetime lineup. Last Man Standing is expected to debut sometime in the fall, and some fans thought Roseanne would be the perfect follow up in the timeslot after Allen's show.
