The Conners: Season One Ratings

The Roseanne revival earned terrific ratings for ABC in the 2017-18 television season. It stung them to cancel it in the wake of star Roseanne Barr's offensive Twitter behavior. Rather than let the whole Conner family (and that great big audience) go, the Alphabet Network has introduced The Conners TV show. Can the first season of this spinoff even come close to being the kind of Nielsen knockout the revival was, or has the audience already moved on? Will The Conners be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

An ABC family comedy, The Conners stars John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, Michael Fishman, Emma Kenney, Ames McNamara, Jayden Rey, and Maya Lynne Robinson. Guest stars in season one include Estelle Parsons, James Pickens Jr., Natalie West, Johnny Galecki, and Juliette Lewis. The sitcom follows the working-class family of Roseanne and

10 Things You Didn’t Know about John Goodman

In some ways John Goodman is like that cool uncle you have that you might not see all the time but is a lot of fun to hang around with when he does make an appearance. In films he’s been a lot of fun but he’s been able to be serious too throughout many of his appearances. Of course one of his claims to fame was as Dan Connor on Roseanne for a long time, but even that went away after while. He’s been the big lovable guy that a lot of people like to see for so long that

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in January, and the Best Reasons to Watch

7 New Netflix Shows to Binge in January, and the Best Reasons to Watch
1. “Black Earth Rising” (available January 25)

Why Should I Watch? Hugo Blick, the creator behind “The Honourable Woman,” brings Netflix a co-production with BBC Two about a London-based legal investigator whose past comes back to haunt her. Kate Ashby (Michaela Coel) was born in Rwanda and orphaned by genocide, and now her adoptive mother is taking on a case prosecuting an African militia leader. Though Kate is now working for an American barrister (John Goodman), she wants answers for what happened to her birth family, and the new case might offer fresh insights. “Black Earth Rising” is a female-led conspiracy thriller which has already earned strong marks from British critics across the pond, so there’s reason to believe this Netflix original can build a strong following Stateside as well.

Bonus Reason: The last time John Goodman did a drama, we got “Atomic Blonde.” The time before that, it was “Patriots Day.

13 TV Winners and Losers of 2018: From Henry Winkler to ‘Heathers’
As they say every year, it has been one hell of a year — and that idiom even applies to the idiot box. Take “Roseanne” for example: In 2018 alone, ABC revived its old sitcom, made it the top show on TV, canceled it, ordered a spinoff, premiered that spinoff by killing off its former star And went on hiatus with Dan Conner (John Goodman) already having a new love interest.

Mm-hmm, it’s been a looooooong 12 months.

True Stories

1986 / 1.85:1 / 89 Min. / Street Date – November 27, 2018

Starring David Byrne, John Goodman, Swoosie Kurtz, Pops Staples

Cinematography by Ed Lachman

Directed by David Byrne

A concert film filmed over four nights at the Pantages Theater in 1983, Jonathan Demme’s Stop Making Sense has the redemptive quality of a classic noir – as Talking Heads’ music churns from slow simmer to barn-burning tent-show revival, band leader David Byrne contends with his own Hollywood style character arc – at movie’s end the “tense and nervous” loner has reclaimed his soul in more ways than one.

The success of Demme’s film lead to Byrne’s next incarnation, as a movie director and oddball tour guide investigating a small southwestern town in 1986’s True Stories. Animated by unpredictable mood swings, quirky tempos and cosmopolitan naiveté, it’s the cinematic equivalent of a Talking Heads song.
