‘Roseanne’ Spin-off Getting Canceled?

The spin-off of ‘Roseanne’, ‘The Connors’ is rumored to be on the chopping block at ABC. Reports have indicated that the network ordered only 1 more episode leading people to believe that the end is near for the new show.

According to The Daily Wire:

Rumors began circulating online this week that the Roseanne Barr-less reboot of the “Roseanne” reboot was likely going to be cancelled after just 11 episodes, but the reality is that ABC has given no word on what it plans to do with “The Conners.”

The rumor got going in part from a comment by ShowBiz411 about ABC suspiciously ordering just one more episode in addition to the first run of ten.

“ABC has ordered 1 extra episode to the original order of 10,” noted Roger Friedman. “Sounds to me like a finale,” he speculated, then joked: “Someone wakes up and says they dreamt Roseanne died. There’s a cackle from the next room. Fade to black.”

Friedman’s suggestion followed his breakdown of “The Conners” ratings thus far, which he suggested are trending down in problematic fashion. The show “dropped in everything last night–total viewers, key demo,” he wrote. Its big Halloween episode was “beaten by everything- ‘NCIS,’ ‘The Voice,’ etc.” while the show lost ground in the key demo and total viewers, which were “down by 180K.”

While some people think the show will survive, this new report is not good news for the show. Continue to check back with AU as we will monitor any possible cancelations.
