You have a strange point on why Weinstein gets the attention.  It is probably because he is the most prominent and rich?  Though more people have heard of Bill Cosby then him.

ABC is cancelling their highest viewed television program, "Roseanne."   This comes as a shock to many.

I'm not terribly surprised. Lest we forget, this is Roseanne, a nwoman who once angered people by screeching the national anthem while spitting and grabbing her crotch at a televised baseball game.  Sure, she may be all for Trump, but she hasn't mellowed with age, she really has no class at all, and she simply cannot behave herself. I had a feeling the show wouldn't last a season-- reboots have a botoriusly bad track record, and I saw the writing on the wall five minutes into the first episode when Jackie showed up in a pussy hat and a "Nasty Woman" T-shirt, reduced to a buffoonish snowflake caricature and squawking the requisite progressive rhetoric.  Plus seeing Roseanne and Dan this way-- greying, financially struggling, and racked with pain-- is kind of depressing.  It's like, I love my parents, but I wouldn't give them a TV show; ain't noboy wanna watch 'at shit. It's never happy to watch a once-beloved star struggle to remain relevant in their later years-- Bela Lugosi, The Three Stooges, Lucille Ball, Redd Foxx.., now, Roseanne.   I honestly thought the show would die quietly during midseason sweeps, not be torpedoed by its star's inability to keep her damn mouth shut.  I'd better hurry and watch those last couple of episodes I have in my Roku cache before the network gives the show its shameful burial.

Look forward to watching ABC's ratings continue to drop.

She shouldn't have been stupid.  This is a life lesson on THINKING before your say or type it online.

Her selfish stupidity ruined it for so many people.  They now don't have jobs.  Actors, writers, stage crew, etc.  All just lost their job because of her actions.

But I also wonder how Joy Behar still has her job...

Bad publicity is publicity.... I wonder if Netflix will pick up the show and air new episodes and ride this wave?

Wait... Daria's best friend was Jane Lane.  She and Jodie hardly interacted at all during the series.  Why bill them together as a buddy comedy? Also, I thought Gallery Mallory was this generation's answer to Daria.

This should be interesting.  I wonder how they will animate it?  Hopefully of similar style.

I've never watched Daria. Was it any good? What would you compare it too?

It was the very embodiment of awkward Gen-X angst.   I think, like the attempted Beavis and Butt-Head revival over seven years ago, it'll flop and go away quietly.  I'm just not sure the audience is there anymore.

Exactly what I think too.  Fan faithful will watch, be upset, leave.  No new viewers will come in.  It will end early or maybe last a shortened season.
