Roseanne: Season 11 to Have More Episodes, Less Politics

Pitches center on the next 'Roseanne' even as nets scale back ambitious edgier fare

It was just very sweet of him to congratulate us.

"All we know for sure is that someone is buying Fox, Rupert Murdoch is getting richer and everyone is redoing their kitchens with a mother--ing pasta faucet". It sounds on paper like an interconnected-lives show akin to NBC's new drama, "The Village", about residents in a NY apartment building.

"The show certainly did touch on some of that in the first episode in a very amusing way, to look at the different political views between Roseanne and Jackie", Dungey explained.

ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey, in a conference call with reporters, said the show will ditch its political slant next season, according to Fox News.

He added, "I think that one of the things that was fresh for us with "Roseanne" on the air is that it is focusing (on) a family that is in a different economic status than some of the other family comedies that are on the air".

Dungey noted that as the first season went on, the focus shifted from politics to family. With the Dancing with the Stars franchise branching out, it would be nice if we could get a spinoff with everyday, average Joes competing alongside the "stars" of the ballroom, a.k.a. the professionals. The show is based on a Spanish series.

"Let's be honest, this is all nonsense - our ratings are going down and our prices are going up", he told audience members watching in person and via livestream.

Would Roseanne still be as politically charged in the second season? It will be joined by the new drama "The Rookie", in which Nathan Fillion's character decides to leave his small town to join the Los Angeles Police Department, becoming the force's oldest rookie.

"Here's the guy who really writes most of my tweets". A Million Little Things is a drama about a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances.

Still, many viewers have taken issue with ABC for allowing "Roseanne" to be so overtly political (the reboot's season premiere saw Donald Trump-supporting Roseanne at odds with sister Jackie, who's a p-y hat-wearing Hilary Clinton backer) while "Black-ish" has been censored. They'll hold court alongside game show "Child Support" and "20/20".

The 50-year-old has hosted 15 out of the last 16 annual ABC upfronts - only missing last year's event to look after his son following the newborn's heart surgery. She is ending her 15-year tenure at ABC Studios for a rich, multiyear deal at Netflix.

THURSDAY: 8 p.m., "Grey's Anatomy;" 9 p.m., "Station 19;" 10 p.m., "How To Get Away With Murder".

On deck for later in the season are returning series "For the People" and "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", as well as reality offerings "American Idol" and "The Bachelor".
