'Roseanne' Reruns Pulled From Multiple Cable Channels And Has Its Emmy Campaign Suspended

The losses keep on coming for Roseanne. 

After its star Roseanne Barr unleashed a racist tweet on social media, the reprucssions have been swift and severe.

The reruns of the show will be pulled from the multiple cable channels that have it in syndication, including three Viacom networks: Paramount Network, CMT and TV Land.

Hulu has also snatched down episodes of the rebooted Season 10.

ABC has removed any mentioning from Roseanne on its website and press site and has suspended the FYC (For Your Consideration) Emmy campaign for the show.

Several of the show's stars, producers and writers already planned to quit before the show was axed.

All of this is a result of a racist tweet Barr issued on Tuesday against Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The cancellation of the ratings juggernaut leaves a gap in the schedule, which could be filled by the comedy pilot Steps starring Ryan Michelle Bathe and Cameron Boyce.
