The Queen of Comedy Returns!!!

This has been a pretty big year for Roseanne. She released a book, has been going on every television talk show known to man, is saving the world with her nuts, filmed a highly successful reality show, signed on for Chelsea Handler's new sitcom, gets her blog and her sometimes malicious tweets picked up by the media, is writing editorials, and is now running for President of the United States. Still, one thing the public has been wanting her to do that she hasn't done since 1997 is create and star in a new sitcom. Well, Roseanne has decided to do just that!!

After bringing one 1990s ABC sitcom star, Home Improvement's Tim Allen, back to primetime with a new comedy series, 20th Century Fox TV is looking to do the same for another, Roseanne Barr. The studio has signed a script deal with the former Roseanne star for a half-hour comedy she will co-write with her boyfriend Johnny Argent. The project, titled Downwardly Mobile, will explore the same territory as Roseanne, revolving around an optimistic blue-collar family living in hard times. Search is underway for a showrunner to board the project before it's taken out to the networks. Barr and Argent are executive producing with Steven Greener who also executive produces Barr's Lifetime reality series Roseanne's Nuts.


There's no doubt she won't be hiring Chuck Lorre (creator of "Two And A Half Men") for this new show, a guy whose career she started, and now trashes ever since the Charlie Sheen fiasco. I hope she pulls a "Lucy Show" and gets Laurie Metcalf (Jackie in "Roseanne") to return, as well as Sandra Bernhard! Lucille Ball brought back Vivian Vance (Ethel Mertz in "I Love Lucy") in her second sitcom, "The Lucy Show". Why can't Roseanne do this? Does anyone remember that Joseph Gordon-Levitt used to be on "Roseanne" back in the day, and the time Edina and Patsy showed up at a party?
