Roseanne’s co-star is speaking out about what the show is like after her departure. John Goodman describes the new show “The Connors” as a show with a “hollow center.”
According to The Daily Wire:
In an interview with USA Today this week, John Goodman said he misses his friend “Rosie real bad” despite being happy to return in “The Conners.”
“It felt great to be back, but there’s a hollow center. I miss Rosie real bad,” said Goodman.
Roseanne Barr was ousted from her own sitcom earlier this year due to a racially charged tweet targeting former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, whom she described as a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and “Planet of the Apes.” Roseanne initially claimed she didn’t realize that Jarrett, who was born to parents of African-American and European descent, was black. While the tweet was racially charged, Goodman recently said he knows that Roseanne is not a racist person.
“I know for a fact that she’s not a racist,” he said, going on to imply that ABC should not have canceled her show so suddenly. “I’ll put it this way, I was surprised at the response. And that’s probably all I should say about it.”
It looks like Goodman is not happy with ABC’s decision to fire Roseanne. Only time will tell how successful the new show will be. But the signs are not looking good.
