The working-class sitcom stars the same cast as last season's highest-rated show - John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, etc. - with one major exception: Roseanne Barr, who was sacked by ABC over "abhorrent" comments she made on Twitter.

"Oh ya, they killed her", Barr said.

Barr found her character's death to be disrespectful to those "who loved that family" in the original "Roseanne" show. However, she never wanted her character to die from it. "It wasn't enough to do what they did to me", said Barr. "It's done. It's over".

John Goodman, who played Roseanne's husband on the show, previously had implied Barr's character would be killed off.

After the show's demise, talk began about a spinoff show starring the entire cast, minus Barr, featuring her family and titled "The Conners".

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach was also on the show and said: "I know a lot of the viewers may not know the intricacies of the Iran nuclear agreement".

Storm warnings have been raised in 25 provinces across the main northern island of Luzon, restricting sea and air travel. House after house had been flattened or badly damaged, with roofs or walls missing.

"Roseanne" was abruptly canceled by ABC in May after Barr posted racist tweets about former President Barack Obama's adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Barr was not happy with the way her character was written off though, calling it an insult to fans of the show.

On Tuesday, Roseanne Barr gave an exclusive interview to Dr. Oz, in yet another attempt to explain and apologize for her racist tweet.

Variety's report also suggests that the Loki and Scarlet Witch limited series would have larger budgets than traditional shows. At this time, it isn't known what the stories will be, or where in the MCU timeline they will air.

"You know I heard Roseanne is actually moving to Israel", said Che.

The actress' upcoming trip will be the fourth time she's visited the nation. That's in stark contrast to what she tweeted in May. "Don't think I don't have spies".

The Conners spinoff was announced by ABC after Barr agreed to relinquish any participation in it.
