ROSEANNE WITHOUT ROSEANNE?

TMZ has just announced that  ABC is going to move ahead with a new version of Roseanne without Roseanne Barr.

The announcement may come this week.

It hasn't been released on exactly what the focus will be on, if it's not Roseanne. Speculation has been that it might be based on Sara Gilbert's character Darlene.

WILL THEY EVENTUALLY BRING ROSEANNE BACK?

You have to wonder if this is a way for ABC to sneak Roseanne Barr back into the show, after forgiveness comes in a few months. Maybe she'll be making some cameo or guest appearances on the show...then again...maybe not.
