The 2018 return of the “Roseanne” show was a smashing success; in fact, it didn’t just surpass ratings expectations, it blew them out of the water, dominating Tuesday night and bringing in viewers of all ages, including a large number too young to have been fans of her original show. In total, the season premiere brought in a stunning 18.2 million viewers.

In a time where being a Trump supporter in Hollywood is the kiss of death, Roseanne Barr boldly decided that her character would be a Trump supporter. At the time of the show’s debut, Roseanne Barr was very active on Twitter, where she mostly tweeted about her support for Israel and against the attacks on Israel by the Palestinians. Barr was also tweeting about her support for President Trump. The left, who was blinded by rage over her unashamed support for our outspoken Republican President, trolled her Twitter account and waited for the opportunity for her to make a misstep.

When Barr realized her tweet was being blasted all over the internet and being called “racist,” the actress who has never been accused of racism during her lengthy career, immediately apologized, saying she was “truly sorry for making a bad joke.”

ABC’s Rober Iger didn’t waste any time making a public announcement on Twitter that they were firing Roseanne Barr, the namesake of their top-rated “Roseanne” reboot show.

After months of staying quiet about the firing from her namesake hit show on ABC, Roseanne Barr is speaking out about who she believes was really behind the decision to fire her.

CT reports – Barr recently sat down for an interview with The U.K.’s Sunday Times, and the actress pulled no punches in criticizing the network for terminating her while also accusing the former first lady of being the impetus behind that network decision.

Barr said of Michelle Obama: “She said, ‘This tweet is unforgivable.’ That’s what I was told, and I tend to believe it because the woman who fired me is now working with the Obamas at Netflix.”

Fox News reported that Barr had most likely referenced former ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey, who resigned from her position at ABC in November 2018 and was hired just weeks later by Netflix to work with the Obamas and their Higher Ground Productions company, among others, on original content for the popular online streaming service.

CNN gloated about Dungey’s role in the firing of Roseanne Barr from her namesake show – Network TV executives don’t typically cancel the No. 1 show on their network. But that’s exactly what Channing Dungey did.

Of course, the situation that led to the swift cancellation of ABC’s reboot of “Roseanne” in May, just days after the network aired the ninth and final episode of the show’s comeback season, was anything but typical. And Dungey, then president of ABC Entertainment and well respected inside and outside the company, is not your typical television executive.
When the ax came down on “Roseanne” hours after Roseanne Barr went on a racist Twitter tirade, outsiders were shocked by ABC’s bold move. The show was the network’s highest-rated launch in years and a top-performer across all networks. (“The Conners,” a spinoff, replaced the series in the fall.)
In announcing the show’s end, Dungey, 49, issued a one-sentence statement: “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.”
In mid-December 2018, it was announced that Channing Dungey was moving to Netflix, who just signed a massive deal with the Obama’s that will feature their special brand of propaganda.
According to Hollywood Reporter – A month after exiting ABC, Dungey is officially joining Netflix. In a move many anticipated, the former ABC Entertainment president will share the VP originals title with Cindy Holland, to whom she will report. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Dungey will also have a direct line to content chief Ted Sarandos.

Ted Sarandos is Netflix’s chief content officer. His ownership of 497,699 shares makes him the third-largest individual shareholder in the company.  In 2012, Ted Sarandos and his wife Nicole Avant, Obama’s former Ambassador to the Bahamas, threw a party at their home, where they raised half a MILLION dollars in one night for Barack Obama’s reelection campaign. a notable contributor to the bundler couple’s party included accused rapist and serial sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.

In her new role, Dungey will partner with Holland in setting strategic direction as well as oversee a large and what Netflix described as a “crucial portion” of the slate — including some of the company’s overall deals with producers including the Obamas and their Higher Ground Productions, Shonda Rhimes, Kenya Barris, Jenji Kohan, Steven DeKnight and Marti Noxon, among others. Dungey will oversee half of Holland’s existing group of programming executives at Netflix.
