What Fans of Abruptly Canceled Shows Talk About

I “Like” a lot of shows on Facebook. Why? I could say it’s because I like having my Feed updated with news reports and interesting links about who’s going to be on this week’s Simpsons episode or about a wood carving of Ron Swanson that I can’t believe hasn’t actually made its way onto Parks and Recreation's official Page yet. But to be honest, the likelier reason is because I’m a narcissist who feels the need to broadcast his Likes onto society — “Hey, look at me world, I love Party Down. I’m cool!”

In other words, I’m a Facebook user. But a “Like” shouldn’t be taken too lightly; [...]

Roseanne Hypes Her Nuts For A Post-Apocalyptic America On Kimmel

During Roseanne's interview on Kimmel last night, the newly farmer-ized comedian explains the role of her rustic overalls during the coming End Times. "This is, like, the future, I think. Everybody's going to be wearing these kinds of outfits pretty damn soon when everyone has to start growing their own gardens to eat," Barr gleefully explains. "Definitely. 2012: end of the world. Get ready for it, ladies and gentlemen." In addition to promoting Roseanne's Nuts and her new book Roseannearchy, Barr praises the planet-saving nuts, explains how to farm bees, discusses trans-species communication and spitballs a few ideas for the role of men (drones, garbage collectors, moving [...]

Roseanne for President: The First Hundred Days in Office

Finally going through with her promise/threat from August, Roseanne Barr has filed the paperwork to run for president and says on her Twitter that she doesn't expect to win, but hopes bring attention to the Green Party by running. If she did get elected, here's an incomplete list of what she'd likely focus on in her first 100 days in the Oval Office:

- invest in technology futures for nut manufacture - promote tax subsidies for menopausal women - hire a cabinet led by John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, and Johnny Galecki - write searing, eye-opening essay about sexism on the political campaign trail [...]

Roseanne Reminisces about Her Show for Fat People on Letterman

While visiting Letterman to promote the aptly named Roseanne's Nuts, the comedic mother of us all described how her sister overheard two people in the audience of the Roseanne pilot complaining, "Who's gonna watch this? This show's a piece of crap. Who's going to watch this show about fat people?" The fact that those people were Roseanne's agent and the show's producer should be a surprise to absolutely no one, provided they've listened to anything the woman has had to say in last few decades. Another roll of butcher paper for the fired list!

Lifetime Cancels Roseanne's Nuts

Deez nuts, we hardly knew ye. According to Roseanne herself, Lifetime's Roseanne's Nuts has been canceled. "Roseanne's Nuts has been cancelled. thanks everyone for watching!," Barr tweeted last night. Luckily the short-lived show will live on, as both a reminder of how delightful Roseanne is as a late night guest and a helpful guide to how the macadamia nut will save the environment and economy from total collapse. SOMETHING HAS TO, RIGHT?

First Roseanne's Nuts Promo Makes Sure You Get the Pun in the Title

Roseanne's Nuts, the upcoming Lifetime reality show about Roseanne Barr's macadamia nut farm, has a title you could take a few ways. One, you could take it literally, as it is about her macadamia nuts. You could also read it as a take on her sanity, as in "man, that Roseanne sure is nuts!" Or, if you're feeling a little childish, you could read it as if it was talking about a part of Roseanne's anatomy that I'm pretty sure doesn't exist. Three guesses as to which reading of it the first promo leans very heavily on!
