'Roseanne' Will Reportedly Be Moving Away From Politics Next Season

Alec Baldwin right seen interviewing Jerry Seinfeld in March is getting a Sunday night talk show this fall on ABC

Kimmel appeared to turn up the heat on his network with some searing one-liners, that, according to Entertainment Weekly, earned the ABC funnyman some audible groans from the advertiser-heavy audience.

The Roseanne reboot is paired with freshman comedy The Kids Are Alright on Tuesday.

Jimmy Kimmel took a swing at the big networks, including his own, during ABC's upfront presentation to advertisers on Tuesday.

SAPNA The network also managed to make time for "American Idol", which it stole away from Fox, "Good Morning America" and a few of its shows from Freeform - Disney's dedicated cable network for millennials.

When the show returned this spring after a 21-year absence, the titular matriarch played by Roseanne Barr was re-introduced as a supporter of U.S. President Donald Trump, while her sister Jackie, played by Laurie Metcalf, was still upset that Hillary Clinton or Jill Stein didn't win the election.

ABC has struggled over the years to create blockbuster shows beyond those produced by Shonda Rhimes, who announced last year that she was leaving her longtime ABC Studios home to join Netflix.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD got a shortened-season renewal, and will air during summer 2019, but ABC added that they did not see that as the end for the series, which launched to big ratings and a ton of hype in the wake of Marvel's The Avengers. Roseanne sarcastically responded, "They're just like us".

Dungey also said that it wasn't yet clear whether ABC would order additional episodes of "Roseanne" for the fall season.

Will "Roseanne" ditch the pro-Trump humor next year?

This led to Dungey saying that ABC's shows would be as "diverse and inclusive as possible".

During the call, Dungey said the show's second season may move away from politics.

"Roseanne", she said, focuses on a family dealing with economic constraints, which differs from several other ABC comedies, such as "black-ish" and "Modern Family", in which the families represent those in a higher-income bracket. "Dancing With the Stars: Juniors", which pairs child celebrities with young ballrooms dancers, will air on Sundays.

Dungey defended the "Roseanne" writers and said they were just expressing the title character's views.

And about that "Blackish" and "Fresh Off the Boat" joke: In one episode, Roseanne and Dan (John Goodman) fell asleep in front of the TV during ABC's prime-time lineup.

The 50-year-old has hosted 15 out of the last 16 annual ABC upfronts - only missing last year's event to look after his son following the newborn's heart surgery.

WTF? Moment | One new slogan is more than enough for a single presentation, but that didn't stop ABC from rolling out two dizzyingly similar "Straight Forward" (ABC News) and "Forward Together (ABC)".
