‘Roseanne’s Nuts’ Not Renewed by Lifetime
If you’re a Roseanne Barr fan, the star has some not so great news today.
On her Twitter feed, the outspoken Barr confirmed to fans that Lifetime had chosen not to renew her reality show Roseanne’s Nuts. Roseanne’s Nuts centered around the actress, her partner Johnny Argent and her son Jake Pentland and their adventures on their macadamia nut and livestock farm in Hawaii.
While the show appears to have garnered mixed feedback, some critics were positive. The Los Angeles Times reviewed Roseanne’s Nuts favorably, saying:
There are no overproduced glamorous outings, no sound-track manipulated showdowns, no manufactured feuds — everyone in the pilot has the easy genial mien of friends helping out an odd but beloved neighbor. There’s even a trio of local musicians providing a transitional tune… The result is an occasionally weird, occasionally hilarious show that is simultaneously a window into the life of an eccentric performer and a wickedly fun send-up of the genre, dating all the way to Paris Hilton and “The Simple Life.”
On Twitter, Barr simply tweeted:
However, there is a bit of good news for fans of Roseanne- particularly if you really enjoyed her old sitcom on ABC. The comedienne and actress is slated to bring to screen and star in a new sitcom called Downwardly Mobile. Few details are available about the new venture, but it will center around a family struggling through the economic downturn.
