NBC's Giving Roseanne A Shot With Her New Pilot

| Filed under: TV NewsRoseanne

Nutty Roseanne has put her reality TV chapter behind her and is focused now on returning to her roots - sitcoms!

NBC has just picked up what some are considering Roseanne's possible "comeback comedy" called Downwardly Mobile. Ro will star (and write and executive produce) as the "proprietor of a mobile home park and surrogate mother to all of the people who live there during a challenging economic time."

Yep. Sounds about right to us. Throw in John Goodman and a few white trash jokes and it's the 90s all over again!

This may hopefully bounce the fourth-place network back to its former glory. If anyone could make a show like this work, it's Roseanne!

Best of luck to you, girl!

    This has major potential to be hilarious. I hope she does well and hope it is a huge hit. Yes, she is a bit crazy but that worked very well with Roseanne and it can with this one too.

    I for one am hoping it gets picked up…Just so I get the satisfaction of reading on "reputable" blogs…"Rosanne's New Show Cancelled After One Episode"

    Once again proving NBC is sucks as much with prime time as ABC does with daytime programming.
