CTV confirms removal of Roseanne episodes from its platforms


CTV Television confirms it will remove episodes of Roseanne from its services in Canada.

This comes after ABC cancelled the series due to Roseanne Barr, the show’s star actress, making a prejudice comment about Obama aide, Valerie Jarrett.


Barr has since express remorse for actions and tweeted out an apology to the country.


However, that didn’t stop Channing Dungey, the president of ABC Entertainment, from cancelling the show within 12 hours of the actress’ comments.

Roseanne is a family sitcom series that was recently revived after a 21-year hiatus. Barr’s actions caused the cancellation after only a single season since the television show’s revival.
