According to Nielsen Media's metered-market ratings, which show tune-in by households in 56 of America's biggest metropolitan areas, Roseanne scored the highest in...Tulsa, Oklahoma. The country's No. 62 market, with just over 500,000 TV-watching households, outperformed the national average by 60 percent with an average 19.0 overnight rating. The market with the highest percentage of TV-watching households tuned into the show was also in the Central Time Zone.

What better fan of a malignant narcissist who likes to brag about grabbing women by the crotch than a woman who grabs herself by the crotch.

You're right, Guido. It's well known that both individuals and corporations read these threads, and it's just possible that this one will turn some away. But our low, low taxes and right-to-work have been drawing them like flies to...um...honey. Right. Honey. Not that other stuff flies like so well.

...but she "represents our values"

Roseanne Barr waded into racial waters on Monday, suggesting that former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Planet of the Apes.”

UPDATE:
ABC canceled its hit sitcom "Roseanne" on Tuesday after the show's biggest star, Roseanne Barr, went on a racist Twitter rant.

Television depends on ad revenue and when one of your "stars" potentially turns away half the viewers, that star becomes expendable.

Seems like with the show content most viewers are probably work-a-day moderately conservative people.  "Half" their viewership leaving seems like a high estimate.  I never watched the re-boot but I'm assuming it wasn't much different than the original series. 

Roseanne's mental instability has been well known for over 30 years, this should have come as no surprise to ABC/Disney in the first place.

Cancelling the show seems to be a bit of an over-reaction to me.  I believe ABC could have done some sort of very public sanction/fine with Roseanne, called it a "teachable moment" Roseanne could have gone on the talk show circuit as humble and repentant and the issue would have vanished like a fart in the wind.

Network TV has been dead to me for years so I really do care less what is or isn't showing and care even less about the stars.

"Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that 'ABC does not tolerate comments like those' made by Roseanne Barr," Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. "Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn't get the call?"

There you go...that is the executive branch.

If a black man says something, it's okay.    If a white person repeats exactly the same thing, it isn't.   

No.   They don't "own" it.   Either it should be unusable across the spectrum or not.    There shouldn't be a double standard.

So tell me...how many black people call white people 'apes'?
