ABC Is Doing Two Dancing with the Stars Seasons At Once

The show's creator and star, Roseanne Barr, is herself a vocal supporter of President TrumpDonald John TrumpAvenatti defends right to release Cohen's financial info Pruitt's 24/7 security requested over fears of Trump policy backlash Senate GOP anger over McCain insult grows MORE.

"Roseanne" may not focus on politics going into the second season of the revival, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said. In subsequent episodes, it delved much more on the "everyday trials and tribulations" of the Conner family.

"I think they'll continue on the path they're on toward the latter part of this season, which is away from politics and more focused on family", she said.

"At the end of the day, this was a mutual decision made between Kenya and the network to not push the episode out, and I think we all feel like that was the best decision overall", Dungey continued. We do similar things on our other shows.

"In a very amusing way, I think it allowed us, between the different, political views of Roseanne and Jackie, to address some issues that we think have been conversations at other family dining tables across the country".

Dungey defended the "Roseanne" writers and said they were just expressing the title character's views.

"I was a little surprised, to be honest, by the reaction to that line", Dungey said, noting that she supported the Roseanne writers in this incident.

Dungey reiterated that the network tries to be "as diverse and inclusive as possible" across all metrics, from race to gender to religion to economics.

Asked in a teleconference with reporters Tuesday if she thinks more time will be devoted to the siblings' political differences in the future, Dungey replied: "We certainly did touch on some of that in the first episode". Fox executives likewise downplayed politics as a factor with the show. Including "economic perspectives" which were "fresh for us...focusing on a family who is in different economic circumstances than a number of other comedies on our air".
