‘Roseanne’ Could Pave Way for Reboot Influx
Initial concerns surrounding the blue-collar support of President Trump in the new ‘Roseanne’ reboot have since subsided after the show’s immediate rating success. Even more so, this may become a new trend within the TV industry. Media expert and director of the Bleier Center for Television and Popular Culture Robert Thompson discussed this potential new movement in this Associated Press article, published in the Telegraph Herald.
“I think we are going to see, within the next year or two, a real attempt to show a no-holds-barred Trump family, and I don’t know exactly what that means,” he said, “but something that really does address the specifics of what the news keeps showing us as the Trump supporter. As people are looking at, ‘How are we going to top “Roseanne?’ I think that’s probably what they’re looking to do. How that’s going to be executed could be very dicey.”
