With American society taking an extremely hard right turn in recent years, thanks to the over fascism of the liberal left, there has been a gaping void in the mainstream media becoming ever more apparent.
You see, the mainstream is filled with leftist lunatics and their bizarrely obsession with progression, even if that progression pushes us past the bounds of best practices or realistic, cost effective optimization.
This liberal stranglehold has permeated seemingly all facets of popular culture, with the possible exception of Fox News and a healthy portion of modern country music. This means that even our scripted television programs tend to have a leftist slant, often romanticizing the facets of virtue signaling and liberalism, no matter the historical or geographical context.
This wasn’t necessarily the case with Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing – a show that brought a number of traditional American views to the forefront of the program. Unfortunately, and possibly due to the left’s death grip on societal media, Last Man Standing didn’t last too long, having been canceled just as the conservative masses began to discover it.
“It’s hard,” Allen says during a sit-down on Norm Macdonald Live. “I have no idea why [ABC] did what they did.” But that doesn’t stop him from suggesting that the decision came down to his conservative politics.
“I always wanted Last Man Standing to be like [All in the Family],” he says. “Archie Bunker pushed boundaries, but Carroll O’Connor was not that guy at all. [Mike Baxter was] a version of that guy. But there’s nothing more dangerous, especially in this climate, than a funny, likable conservative.”
Now, however, a new queen has returned to the conservative television throne, as Roseanne Barr brings her own brand of right wing chuckles to primetime.
The premiere numbers for ABC’s Roseanne revival were even bigger than the laughs it delivered.
The classic comedy returned on Tuesday to 18.2 million total viewers and a 5.1 demo rating (across its double-episode run), easily marking this TV season’s biggest launch — besting even Young Sheldon‘s premiere, which did 17.2 mil/3.8 leading out of Big Bang Theory.
Suffice to say, Will & Grace‘s own revival launch (10.2 mil/3.) trails far behind, as do the series premieres of The Good Doctor (11.2 mil/2.2) and an NFL-boosted The Orville (8.6 mil/2.7).
ABC notes that Roseanne returned to an audience larger than its final 12 telecasts of the original run’s 1996-97 season, while that 5.1 represents a 3-1/2 year high for any comedy on any network.
It looks as though the nation is completely ready for a return to traditional American values in their sitcoms, at least based on the initial impression of the Roseanne reboot.
Now, if ABC was truly ready to ride this conservative wave of cultural surf, we will see Roseanne marathons going head to head with the failing NFL come autumn.
