Real-Life Political Chaos Shakes Up TV’s Approach to Hot-Button Affairs

“Veep” takes place in an alternate reality in which Donald Trump is not president of the United States. But it’s not a Trump-free zone.

“Somewhere along the way, the ‘Veep’ universe was our universe,” says executive producer David Mandel. Washington, Adams and their fellow white guys all the way to Reagan are part of the HBO comedy’s canon. But, says Mandel, “somewhere after Reagan, things change.” That means Trump was born, developed bone spurs and bought his first casino all before the timeline split.

“So I do think that it’s possible that Donald Trump exists in the ‘Veep’ universe,

Ratings: ABC Still Wins With ‘Roseanne’ Repeat Marathon

Ratings: ABC Still Wins With ‘Roseanne’ Repeat Marathon
Roseanne” keeps bringing ABC those impressive Tuesday primetime numbers, even when they are airing a marathon of repeats.

Last night, reruns of the revived sitcom filled up almost all of the Disney-owned broadcaster’s block (with the exception of a new episode of freshman series “Deception” at 10 p.m.) and landed the network in first for the evening in ratings, according to preliminary numbers from Nielsen.

However, ABC did not take the win total viewers, that went to NBC, whose new episode of “The Voice” at 8 p.m. still fared better than the “Roseanne” repeat in the time slot. But the comedy came back around again at 9 p.m., with an old episode that outshined the Peacock’s new drama “Rise.”

Roseanne Barr Q Score: Here’s How Much America Likes (or Doesn’t Like) Sitcom Star (Exclusive)

Roseanne Barr Q Score: Here’s How Much America Likes (or Doesn’t Like) Sitcom Star (Exclusive)
America really likes “Roseanne,” but do we like Roseanne? TheWrap looked into Roseanne Barr’s Q Score — a measurement of one’s likability — to find exactly that out.

The comedian, actress and awful national anthem singer has a 70 Familiarity score, which means she was recognized during a recent market research study by 70 percent of those surveyed. That’s actually far-larger than it probably sounds: Consider Mariska Hargitay, who is better-known than most of her peers, has just a 42 Familiarity score. The popular Kaley Cuoco is between the two with a 53.

So, yes, our ABC sitcom star is extremely well-known — but is Barr well-liked? No, not particularly.

Also Read: 'Roseanne' Passes 'Sunday Night Football' and 'This Is Us' to Become TV's Top-Rated Show

With a 14 Positive Q Score, Barr is not what one would call a beloved personality. That number is not terrible, however — it places Roseanne five points below the average for a female primetime star.

(Back to our above example, the popular Hargitay and Cuoco have a 34 and 27, respectively for their Positive Q Scores. But again, they’re extremely well-liked — click here to see how more primetime actresses rated by both metrics.)

Barr’s Negative Q Score is a 36 — that one is pretty awful, to be honest. Compare it with the average for a female primetime star, which is a 21.

“Her numbers reflect the ‘stir the pot’ appeal that she has with viewers,” Q Scores Company president Henry Schafer told TheWrap. “That’s how the character and the real Roseanne are marketed.”

Also Read: 'Roseanne' Revival Got Big Influx of Fox News Viewers in Second Week

But just how does one gather a Q Score — a number that is commonly used to aid casting and endorsement decisions — anyway?

Well, for this one, Schafer and his team spent the early part of 2018 polling a few thousand Americans age 6 and older. Any of those who marked Barr among their favorite celebrities went in the Positive column, those who said she was one of their least favorite personalities were counted in the Negative tally. The Q Score itself is essentially just a percentage of those surveyed who said “Yes” to either extreme.

Unfortunately, one group was two-and-a-half times larger than the other — not that ABC is too concerned about it.

The Sweet Meaning Behind David and Darlene's Son's Name on Roseanne Will Make You Tear Up

Roseanne returned to ABC after two decades off the air, and the show has made sure to pay tribute to late actor Glenn Quinn in a few ways. Quinn, who played Mark Healy in the original series, passed away from an accidental heroin overdose in 2002, and while talking about Roseanne during a panel on The Talk, actress Sara Gilbert - who reprises her role as Darlene Conner - explained the sweet way that she and former costar Johnny Galecki decided to pay homage to Quinn in their own way.

Though Darlene and David Healy (Galecki) are separated in the reboot, they share two kids, teenage daughter Harris (played by Emma Kenney) and her younger brother, Mark (Ames McNamara), who is named after his late uncle. On Tuesday, Sara Gilbert revealed that in June 2017, she and Galecki decided via text what their "baby boy" would be named in anticipation for the show coming back.

How 'Cobra Kai' Brought 'The Karate Kid' Roaring Back to Life
In September 2016, William Zabka – best known for portraying quintessential 1980s teen movie villain Johnny Lawrence in the original The Karate Kid – was summoned to his favorite Mexican restaurant in L.A. The reason: A mysterious meeting with three young comedy writers who had found big success in recent years with the Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar franchises. He had absolutely no idea what they wanted. "We must have finished four or five baskets of chips and salsa," says Zabka. "But they kept pushing away the waiter from

Hooray for Holly-Weed: 19 Celebrity Stoners to Celebrate 420 With (Photos)

Hooray for Holly-Weed: 19 Celebrity Stoners to Celebrate 420 With (Photos)
Hollywood stars don’t shy away from being 420-friendly. Here are the biggest names in entertainment who like to roll up a blunt or hit a bong — no matter what the date is.

From Snoop Dogg to Dawn Wells — if you’re commemorating the marijuana enthusiast’s national holiday for 420, you have friends in high places.

Robert Mitchum: The O.G. of celebrity stoners was arrested on marijuana charges in 1948 and spent two months behind bars.

Willie Nelson

The Red-Headed Stranger is notoriously no stranger to the green and announced that he was launching his own strain of premium weed last year. We have no idea what took him that long.

Dawn Wells

Mary Ann from “Gilligan’s Island” got popped for pot in 2008.

Cameron Diaz

The “There’s Something About Mary” star has admitted that she used to buy weed from Snoop Dogg. Which leads us to …

Snoop Dogg

We’d have to be completely high to leave him off of this list.

Justin Timberlake

The “20/20 Experience” singer says he smokes out because “sometimes I have a brain that needs to be turned off.”

Roseanne Barr

The “Roseanne” star, who smokes to alleviate her glaucoma, got into the weed biz in 2016 by investing in the dispensary Roseanne’s Joint. She even famously got stoned an old episode of her show.

Chace Crawford

The former “Gossip Girl” star gave people plenty to wag their tongues about when he was arrested for marijuana possession in 2010.

Frances McDormand

When she’s not appearing in awesome projects like “Fargo” and “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” McDormand serves as a High Times cover girl.

Seth Rogen

The “Pineapple Express” actor not only knows his way around a bong, he’s named names when it comes to his famous smoke-out pals.

On the Bubble 2018: Which Broadcast TV Shows Will Be Canceled and Which Will Be Renewed?

  • The Wrap
On the Bubble 2018: Which Broadcast TV Shows Will Be Canceled and Which Will Be Renewed?
April TV ratings bring May cancellations — but sometimes last-minute renewals, too.

Mid-spring marks the time of year when at-risk shows must sweat out their fates — sometimes right up until networks announce their fall schedules to advertisers at their upfront presentations in May. Optimism has its place in Hollywood, but it ranks somewhere between actual advertising money and the feel-good awards that can sometimes keep low-rated shows alive.

Generally, top-performing shows from each broadcast network have already received their votes of confidence for another season, and the worst performers were snuffed out months ago. But then there are the bubble shows, which could really go either way.

Also Read: 'Roseanne' Passes 'Sunday Night Football' and 'This Is Us' to Become TV's Top-Rated Show

Their fates come down to lots of hard-to-quantify factors: momentum, reviews, how much they cost to make, how much money the people who watch them make, syndication situations, diversity, and what networks have to replace them. And then there are executives’ personal tastes. It’s part science, part crapshoot.

TheWrap is here to help make sense of it all, charting below what scripted series have already been renewed on each of the English-language broadcast networks, what’s been canceled or just ended, and which way each of the many remaining decisions will likely lean.

All ratings in this story come from the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic, and count a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.

Every network has to cancel some shows to make way for promising pilots — even the highest-rated broadcaster. NBC just needs to get going already.

Here, “Champions” and “Taken” are obviously getting the axe, but scrapping two shows probably won’t clear enough brush. “Timeless” is likely to join them in the canceled pile (again), and we don’t expect a fan backlash to work on Bob Greenblatt this time.

“Great News,” “A.P. Bio,” “Rise,” “The Brave” and “Good Girls” all appear to be truly on the bubble. Tina Fey’s “Great News” has its auspices going for it, but that was the excuse for bringing it back last year. The ratings don’t justify taking another flyer.

Lackluster as its own performance as been, “A.P. Bio” will probably squeak in to fill NBC’s “edgy” comedy slot. We believe “Rise” is on-brand enough for the network and a solid scripted partner for TV’s top singing competition. “The Brave” probably did enough in its time slot to justify another go, and “Good Girls” feels enough of-the-moment to return.

Beyond those, “The Blacklist” basically comes down to if James Spader wants to do more, while “Blindspot” performs well-enough for a Friday show to warrant another nod.

The rest are Dick Wolf shows, and why would those go away?

In chart form:

Also Read: CBS Renews 'Survivor,' 'The Amazing Race,' 9 More Series


CBS has already given a vote of confidence to freshman dramas “S.W.A.T.” and “Seal Team,” both of which have performed admirably.

The entire “NCIS” franchise also made the cut, as did the Dr. Phil-produced “Bull,” awards-contender “Mom,” and the network’s Friday drama line-up. “The Big Bang Theory” had already been renewed through next season, and new partner “Young Sheldon” became one of the season’s first renewals earlier this year.

As for CBS’s other new shows, the high-concept comedy “Me, Myself & I” was a quick goner, and “Wisdom of the Crowd” was buried after sexual assault accusations against star Jeremy Piven.

Johnny Galecki’s “Living Biblically” premiered midseason in the timeslot previously occupied by “Me, Myself & I” to similarly disappointing ratings and soon followed it to cancellation.

Mark Feuerstein’s “9Jkl” also made little dent on Monday nights when it debuted in the fall. With “Young Sheldon” as CBS’ only new comedy hit, returning players “Kevin Can Wait,” “Man With a Plan” and “Life in Pieces” should make it through, though none are a sure bet. It’s worth point out here that “Life in Pieces” is a 20th Century Fox show, and non-ownership very rarely helps.

Perennial bubble show “Criminal Minds,” meanwhile, also has the misfortune of being an outside production. A decision there will likely come down to the wire, but we’re betting a 14th season is in the cards.

The Katharine McPhee-led “Scorpion” seems even less of a lock, though a decision will depend on the network’s developing pipeline and the performance of “Code Black” and “Elementary,” both of which are yet to premiere. We’re told “Scorpion’s” fanbase has been particularly vocal about keeping that show on the air, which could theoretically do the trick.


This season, ABC had two big success stories, the freshman medical drama “The Good Doctor” and the mega-hit “Roseanne” revival, and the network was quick to renew both.

But with a number of its long-running shows coming to an end — “The Middle,” “Once Upon a Time” and the network-defining “Scandal” are all concluding their runs this season — and few other breakout hits, ABC will have to take a long, hard look at its slate as it decides what to keep and cut loose.

Few of the network’s new shows have stuck, with the comedy “The Mayor” pulled from the schedule early and “Inhumans” limping through its eight-episode season last fall, following a heavily hyped but critically reviled premiere.

“Alex Inc.” and the Shondaland legal drama “For the People” all failed to make an impact in the ratings and are unlikely to return, and the high-concept drama “The Crossing,” whose time-traveling refugees were rejected by viewers, was dead on arrival. Though we don’t believe “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” will ultimately be saved for next season, strong support from the highest levels at ABC makes it an actual possibility.

Midseason entries “Splitting Up Together” and “Deception” have both managed to perform well enough to get another shot in an otherwise disappointing season. Those two shows are examples of when it is better to be a bubble show on ABC than on NBC or CBS.

With “Scandal” going off the air and Shonda Rhimes decamping to Netflix, ABC will look to hold on to reliable performers, including “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away With Murder.” “Grey’s” spinoff “Station 19” has also proven a solid (enough) partner for the medical drama. Thumbs up to those three.


Fox got a bunch of no-brainer renewals out of the way, and this was always going to be “New Girl’s” farewell to fans. “The X-Files” could return at any time, but everyone definitely sounds done with that for now — and maybe even forever, this time.

“The Mick” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” should make it back based on creative. “Star” has proven to be a good partner for “Empire,” so expect more there too. Additionally, “The Resident” ratings are a win for Fox, people seem to like “Lethal Weapon,” and “La to Vegas” should fly at least once more before being grounded.

Don’t be shocked if this ends up being the last season for “The Last Man on Earth,” but right now we think Will Forte and his sports balls will make the cut to come back.

“Ghosted” is probably the most interesting case of Fox’s numerous shows on the bubble. Though the Adam Scott-Craig Robinson vehicle’s demo number — a 1.6 — looks pretty good at first blush, the first-season sitcom was inflated by some NFL football this fall. Mucking up the waters even more, “Ghosted” shifted showrunners in the middle of Season 1, and it still has some episodes to air. Fox is holding tight on a decision until execs see how the new version of the new series fares.

As for “The Exorcist,” well, it’s high time to exorcise that Friday show. “Lucifer,” which is not a Fox-owned series (something that one could argue probably won’t matter anyway after this Disney deal goes through), seems like the next man out. Put the Devil back in Hell.

The CW

The youngest-skewing broadcast network renewed 10 series in one fell swoop, including newbie “Black Lightning,” which has performed pretty well in its first year. Unfortunately, The CW cannot say the same about fellow freshmen “Valor” and “Life Sentence,” which have both been rough.

Star Lucy Hale has been lobbying her large fanbase to save “Life Sentence,” though we doubt that’ll be enough. “Valor” averages the same poor rating, and that one doesn’t even have a Lucy Hale.

The real coin-flip here is “iZombie.” Though the show’s Nielsen number among adults 18-49 doesn’t really justify another season, it is totally possible that The CW adding Sunday nights to its national schedule next season will. Mark Pedowitz now requires more content than the network has needed in nine years.

Also of note here, “The Originals” is a planned ending. Based on last night’s premiere numbers, that’s probably a good idea.

Megan Mullally poised to become second most nominated Best Comedy Supporting Actress in Emmy history

Megan Mullally poised to become second most nominated Best Comedy Supporting Actress in Emmy history
Megan Mullally was Emmy-nominated for seven of “Will & Grace”’s original eight seasons. Thanks to the revival, the two-time winner can add an eighth Best Comedy Supporting Actress nomination this year, which would give her the second most bids in the category.

If she makes the cut, Mullally would only be behind 10-time nominees Rhea Perlman and Loretta Swit, the latter of whom scored her nominations consecutively. Perlman won four times, including three in a row, for “Cheers,” while Swit converted two of her nominations into wins for “M*A*S*H.” With “Will & Grace” renewed for two more seasons, Mullally will have a chance to tie that record.

Ratings: ‘Chicago Pd’ Clubs CBS’ ‘Criminal Minds’ Finale at 10Pm

Fox won another Wednesday in the key 18-49 demo with its solid combo of “Empire” and “Star,” though it was NBC that claimed primetime’s most viewers with a special “The Voice” and a pair of procedurals — including a “Chicago P.D.” beatdown of CBS’ “Criminal Minds” season finale at 10 p.m.

Running a number of reruns, ABC settled for a distant fourth place last night. The CW ended up dead last — including the Spanish-language networks — despite airing the season premiere of “The Originals.”

Fox was first in ratings with a 1.5 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and third in total viewers with an average of 4.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. “Empire” at 8 earned a 1.7/7 and 5.3 million viewers. At 9, “Star” had a 1.3/5 and 4 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 1.1/5 and second in viewers with 6.3 million. “Survivor” at 8 put up a 1.6/7 and 7.7 million viewers. At 9, the night’s first “Criminal Minds” episode managed a 1.0/4 and 6 million viewers. A second hour at 10 dipped to a 0.9/4 and 5.3 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3 and in viewers with 3.2 million. Between some repeats, “Alex, Inc.” at 8:30 settled for a 0.6/3 and 2.9 million viewers. A new “Designated Survivor” at 10 finished primetime to a 0.6/2 and 3.5 million viewers.

'Supermarket Sweep' Star Dale Winton Privately Battled Health Issues for Years Before His Death

We're so sorry to hear this. After years of reportedly suffering from ill-health, British TV star Dale Winton sadly died in his home at age 62 on Wednesday, April 18, his longtime agent confirmed "with great sadness" to The Guardian. "While we know many will share this terrible loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this time of grief," Jan Kennedy said in a statement. In the years prior to his passing, Dale — who was most known for hosting the UK versions of Supermarket Sweep and In It To Win It — privately battled health issues and kept details of his condition from fans. Until 2015, Dale was all over British television, but when he disappeared (and even missed the funeral of his best friend and fellow TV presenter Cilla Black) fans understandably grew concerned.

ABC's beloved sitcom Roseanne has already scored record-breaking ratings (more than 25 million viewers its first week!) in its triumphant return to television 30 years after its original run. And much of Roseanne's original cast — including Rosanne Barr, John Goodman, Sara Gilbert, and Laurie Metcalf — has returned to the show for the Season 10.

I mean it's just unbelievable," Sara —who was 13 years old when the original Roseanne premiered and 22 when it ended — recently said on an episode of The Talk. "I could cry now just thinking about it. It's been so many years. You know, it's my childhood... it's just amazing to watch," she said of the show's high ratings, which have already paved the way for Season 11.

Johnny Galecki and Sara Gilbert's 'Roseanne' Characters' Split Had to Do With Late Glenn Quinn's Character's Death

If you've been wondering where Darlene Conner's husband, David Healy, has been on the new Roseanne reboot, wonder no more! Johnny Galecki returned to the revival to reprise his character during the Tuesday, April 17 episode of the sitcom, and fans got a lot of answers. Though Darlene (played by Sara Gilbert) and David are no longer a married couple on the updated storyline (hence why Darlene moved home with Roseanne and Dan), they are parents to two children together — a teenage daughter named Harris Conner-Healy and a 10-year-old son named Mark Conner-Healy. And in the highly-anticipated episode, we finally got to see the former couple reunite when David made a surprise return for Harris' birthday party after being estranged from his family for years. During his stay, we also learned why they actually split in the first place. So it turns out, David left Darlene because of his late brother,

‘Roseanne’ Passes ‘Sunday Night Football’ and ‘This Is Us’ to Become TV’s Top-Rated Show

‘Roseanne’ Passes ‘Sunday Night Football’ and ‘This Is Us’ to Become TV’s Top-Rated Show
Roseanne” is now the highest-rated show of the 2017-18 TV season, surpassing NBC’s “This Is Us” and even the No. 1 network’s “Sunday Night Football.”

As of the latest weekly Nielsen data stream covering results through April 15 — so, not counting last night’s steady episode of the ABC sitcom — the revived Conner Family classic is currently averaging a huge 6.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to its host network’s tally. That gaudy number counts the show’s available delayed viewing — up to seven day’s-worth per episode — for its first three weeks back on the air.

Per data also provided by ABC, NBC’s “This Is Us” averaged a 5.4 rating and the same network’s “Sunday Night Football” scored a 5.9 rating over the course of their latest wrapped TV seasons.

Though that probably sounds totally cut and dry, it really isn’t. While the television season officially kicked off on Sept. 25, 2017, NBC aired three “Sunday Night Football” (“Snf”) games before that date. NBC counts those very high-rated games in “Snf” averages, ABC does not.

The two broadcast networks do agree that “This Is Us” finished its season averaging a huge 5.4 rating, which included a giant Super Bowl boost for one key February episode.

The marquee primetime NFL property isn’t the only TV series that ABC and NBC can’t agree on a rating for: The home to “Sunday Night Football” has “Roseanne” at a 5.9 on its own weekly ranker. The discrepancy there appears to be that ABC is infusing additional delayed viewing metrics for the third week of “Roseanne,” while NBC is sticking to a traditional measurement, which only counts “live” viewing for an episode that does not yet have “Live + 7 Day” data available.

It takes a while for that to come in.

Neither approach is necessarily wrong, it just depends how you look at it. It also should come as a shock to nobody that both NBC and ABC are touting Nielsen numbers that happen to benefit themselves.

The bottom line is “Roseanne” has received higher ratings than “Sunday Night Football” to-date. The cutoff is really the part in question, and everyone has a reasonable claim here to do what they are doing.

Going forward, the really issue will be Roseanne Barr’s sustainability with America. It’s currently unclear if “Roseanne” will finish the season at No. 1. The show seems to have leveled off, which makes it a bit more predictable — but the revival’s limited delayed viewing trends seem to suggest that the rest of the run will not finish with a “6” in front of each episode’s demo rating, making it somewhere between “possible” and “likely” that “Sunday Night Football” will rule again in the end.

Still, there ain’t no shame in being the top entertainment series of the season, or even the top comedy — check out how well that has worked for CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.” Stay tuned to TheWrap to see how this all plays out.
