ABC canceled the ratings-smashing sitcom "Roseanne" two months after its return to television, after the show's star was sacked for tweeting a racially-charged insult at a former Obama official.

The new 10-episode show is set to air this fall with a working title of "The Conners", which will focus on the other principal characters from "Roseanne", played by John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert.

The Roseanne spin-off will be moving forward at ABC - without original star Roseanne Barr. ABC abruptly canceled the show, and talk immediately began of a spin-off to keep the momentum going while distancing itself from Barr. As well, word from behind the scenes is that the network executives would only move on with a spinoff if Barr had no creative or financial involvement, of which she won't after a deal was struck. "I agreed to the settlement in order that 200 jobs of beloved cast and crew could be saved, and I wish the best for everyone involved" said Barr. We all came back last season because we wanted to tell stories about the challenges facing a working-class family today.

"The circumstance that have caused me to be removed" was that she was a loudmouthed racist on Twitter. She couldn't, she didn't, and now she gets to watch everyone be successful without her.

While I'm sure the new series will draw curiosity views, I expect it will take the recent trajectory of the Roseanne revival where there's big ratings at the beginning and it will slowly decline as the forces of time-shifting and streaming take hold. Still, this is great news for the rest of the cast and the crew who shouldn't have to suffer for Barr's behavior.
