Describing the network’s decision to cancel its hugely successful “Roseanne” reboot as “the worst, most horrible thing I’ve ever been through,” Barr suggested tensions between her and the show’s executives had been simmering for months before they came to a public boil last summer.
“It’s all because I said that I like [Donald] Trump,” Barr said, reflecting on the reason her public comments came under such close scrutiny. “A lot of cabals in Hollywood, that’s all they needed to hear: ‘She must be destroyed.'”

Sadly, that’s not what the host-free 71st Primetime Emmy Awards chose to do. Which is why the just over three-hour result skidded all over the small-screen equivalent of the street on Sunday.
Yes, there were big wins for HBO’s GoT and Chernobyl in the Drama and Limited Series categories, Amazon’s Fleabag for Comedy and Netflix’s Bandersnatch from the Black Mirror team in the Outstanding Television Movie slate.

Amazon’s Prime Video started the night off on a real hot streak, winning the first four awards of the evening — two apiece for “Fleabag” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” — and five out of the initial six.

In the short, which aired right after the end of the second commercial break, the entire Griffin family sits watching the Emmys. Meg (Mila Kunis) remarks how excited she is to be watching the Emmys, prompting Peter (Seth MacFarlane) to say he remembers when the Emmys went to the best and brightest in TV.
Every year, Peter says, it was “Bill Cosby and Roseanne Barr, Roseanne Barr and Bill Cosby” — “great people doing great work.”
“Who will be this year’s Bill Cosby and Roseanne?” Peter says, to end the gag.

“What the hell was that?” yelled Anthony Anderson from the audience, who then went backstage in a very pre-planned bit, took an impromptu photo, made a joke about the coffee gaffe in the final season of “Game of Thrones” and found a suitable person to deliver a monologue about television: four-time “Breaking Bad” Emmy winner Bryan Cranson.

“About a year and a half ago, the Roseanne reboot came on television and we got 28 million people to watch it,” Barr said, opening her set. “So fuck Hollywood.”

The actress and comedian discussed her future and her firing in a Monday interview with DailyMailTV. As Deadline previously reported, Barr is teaming up with Andrew Dice Clay for the Mr. and Mrs. America Tour, which kicks off at the end of the week.
“It’s exciting because we’ve known each other for so long and we’ve never toured together,” she said about Andrew Dice Clay. She added that Clay convinced her to join him on the road.
“Dice talked me into it. He goes ‘people are wanting to hear what you have to say,'” she explained.
Barr was fired from Roseanne in May 2018, after she posted a racially-charged tweet about former Obama adviser, Valerie Jarrett. ABC canceled the sitcom and showed Barr the door.

In two tweets, Trump wrote, “Bad ‘actress’ Debra The Mess Messing is in hot water. She wants to create a ‘Blacklist’ of Trump supporters, & is being accused of McCarthyism. Is also being accused of being a Racist because of the terrible things she said about blacks and mental illness. If Roseanne Barr said what she did, even being on a much higher rated show, she would have been thrown off television. Will Fake News NBC allow a McCarthy style Racist to continue? ABC fired Roseanne. Watch the double standard!”
On Wednesday, Messing apologized for “liking” the image of a church sign that called black Trump voters “mentally ill.” In the furor that followed, the hashtag #RacistDebraMessing began to trend on Twitter.
But just like Rhoda, the spunky, wise-cracking best friend of Moore’s Mary Richards, Harper didn’t back down from a fight. In Hollywood, Harper will perhaps be most remembered for standing her ground on the NBC sitcom “Valerie.”
The comedy, which starred Harper as the matriarch of a nuclear family living in Illinois, and grappling with typical life problems, launched in 1986 and eventually became a hit for the Peacock network. But that harmony was short-lived: Harper was fired from the show after its second season, however, following her salary dispute with Lorimar,
