ABC Sets Premiere Date For Roseanne Spinoff The Conners

ABC has announced a mid-October premiere date for The Conners, the spinoff of the hit revival of Roseanne announced in June following the firing of Roseanne Barr.

The network and parent company Disney swiftly cut ties with Barr in late May after the comedian wrote a racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett, a longtime adviser to former President Barack Obama. Barr, who continues to insist she thought Jarrett is white, will have no creative or financial stake in the spinoff, which will instead center on the other members of her television family.

The Conners will lead off ABC's Tuesday schedule beginning Oct. 16, with Nathan Fillion's new series The Rookie, about the oldest police trainee in Los Angeles, capping off the night.
