According to several sources, ABC is considering a revamp of it’s now cancelled reboot of Roseanne.

In the aftermath of cancelling the sitcom after Roseanne’s racists tweets last week about Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, the network is said to be looking at reshuffling the show to shift the focus to the character of “Darlene” played by out actress Sara Gilbert.

Gilbert, who has been acting as an executive producer for the reboot, has apparently been reaching out to the show’s cast members about interest in continuing with a revamped show.

TMZ reports that John Goodman is “very interested.”

According to The Hollywood Reporter, ABC is scheduling a confab later this week to explore other options for the show.

One caveat: Any new format would “have to be without Roseanne Barr, and the actress and former head writer of the sitcom would not be able to financially benefit from any new incarnation of the series.”

In that Roseanne was a creator of the original show, I’m not sure how you could utilize the same characters without compensating Roseanne.

What do you think, readers? Would you watch “Darlene?”

Sara Gilbert “Comes Out” To Former TV Dad John Goodman In Classic ROSEANNE Roles

How an image can take you back 20 years in the span of a second.

Two decades after the 90s hit sitcom, Roseanne, signed off, two of the shows stars teamed up for a sweet one minute reunion this week.

John Goodman stopped by The Talk this week to promote his new movie, Kong: Skull Island. And clearly the temptation was too great to not take a trip in the “way back machine” with former TV daughter Sara Gilbert, now a host on the afternoon gabfest.

The scene opens with “Dan Conner” (Goodman) on the couch with daughter “Darlene” (Gilbert) watching a football game.

Gilbert: “So, uh, there’s something I’ve been wanting to talk to you about for a while now. I don’t know how to say this—I’m a talk show host.”

Goodman: “Well, as long as you’re happy, you know, me and your mom will support you. You know, for a minute there I thought you were going to tell me you were gay.”

Gilbert: “Let’s save something for halftime.” (sly smile)

And the crowd goes wild.

Of course, the fun here is that Gilbert came out publicly in 2010.

Watch below. Very cute.

THE TALK’s Sara Gilbert marries long-time girlfriend Linda Perry

In a ceremony overlooking the ocean, THE TALK host Sara Gilbert married her long-time girl friend Linda Perry yesterday.

The ceremony capped a year-long engagement that began with a park, a guitar player and a brass band.

Gilbert told E! Online:

“We go to a park, and we have food and we’re eating it, it’s really sweet and there’s this guy sitting playing guitar, like a street musician, and he starts playing this song that we love,” Gilbert recalled.

“I’m like, ‘Oh, that’s so weird, this is so magical and amazing.'”

She continued, “So that ends, and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna ask him to play this other song,’ but this other song is really obscure and this guy wouldn’t know it, but magically he knows it.”

The next thing the Talk star knew, she said, their fellow picnickers pulled out instruments and joined the guitarist to serenade the couple with “Love Song.” At which point, Perry put on a series of T-shirts that each had one word, eventually forming the question “Will You Marry Me?”

Congrats to the happy couple!
