Roseanne Barr is tearing into ABC for killing off her character. Last night’s premiere of the Roseanne spinoff, The Conners, revealed that Roseanne’s character died from an overdose of prescription pain pills. Barr and her rabbi said in a joint statement the death was “an unnecessary grim and morbid dimension to an otherwise happy family show.” Barr was more direct on Twitter, tweeting “I AIN’T DEAD” followed by an expletive. ABC killed off Roseanne the show in May after Barr posted a racist tweet about an Obama-administration official. (Story courtesy of Westwood One)
Some other famous TV character’s that have been killed off are: House of Cards Frank Underwood, Six Feet Under’s Nate Fisher, MASH’s Henry Blake, All In The Family’s Edith Bunker, Two And A Half Men’s Charlie Harper, Grey’s Anatomy’s Derek “McDreamy” Sheppard and The Good Wife’s Will Gardner.
Does it upset you when a major character dies in one of your favorite TV shows?
What Do Our KGNC Listeners think………
Yes especially Roseanne sure she shouldn’t have did what she did but they were treated a lot better then Roseanne was. I am not sure The Conners will survive without her.
