Roseanne Canceled by ABC

In a sudden turn of events, ABC has decided not to go forward with a 10th season of Roseanne, the 2nd of the revival era. The lead actress Roseanne Barr, who plays the title character, sent out some racist tweets earlier this morning that The TV Ratings Guide does not wish to reflect here.

Roseanne was the highest-rated scripted show on broadcast television this season, and was the highest-rated show in relative ratings in the entire century; that includes peak Idol and Friends.

This is a sudden and tragic end to what was always one of the top shows on television, and the first season of the revival received rave reviews from critics and viewers alike. This will certainly prove to be a difficult time for advertisers and ABC, for which the show was likely projected to become one of the most profitable on television?
