Roseanne Barr Spoils Her Character's 'Cynical, Horrible' Fate on The Conners

"The Connors" is the show set to follow Roseanne's highly successful, suddenly cancelled sitcom.

The shows 10th season finale, however, dipped as it averaged 10.3 million viewers. The show's healthy ratings shocked the TV industry where viewership has been on a steady decline, according to Forbes.

When "The Conners" was ordered, ABC was insistent that Barr would have no creative or financial involvement with the show.

If you remember back in June, Roseanne Barr was sacked from her hit show Roseanne just hours after she posted a tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett, comparing her to the "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes".

Bar was sacked after posting a tweet suggesting that former White House adviser Valerie Jarrett is a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the "Planet of the Apes".

The tweet was seen as racist because of the "ape" reference, being that Jarett is part black. "I've heard from thousands of people about it".

Lest you think Goodman was kidding, Barr also possibly spoiled exactly how her character will join Dan in the afterlife (in this timeline, the Roseanne revival never happened, and he's still dead). "Defending myself or being angry for being mischaracterized and, you know, I don't... I'm just gonna keep on, having a great life".

In other jokes aimed at Roseanne, the duo further criticized the actor to an audience of laughing Hollywood royalty.

In June ABC announced a new series, The Connors starring the rest of the Roseanne cast: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman.

Barr said she's not happy with the way she'll be written out of the show.

Jarrett, who could not have been blamed for reading Barr for filth after what she did, took the high road when asked about the offensive tweets during a subsequent appearance on an MSNBC town hall.

"I want to stay away from it", the actress remarked.

On being forgiven: "The joy is in knowing what you did wrong".
