'Roseanne' show revival coming to television

“Roseanne” is making a comeback.

According to E! News, ABC has officially announced that the series was just given orders for a revival.

>> Read more trending news

We’re rebooting ‘Roseanne,’” ABC network president Channing Dungey confirmed Tuesday. “It is planned for the mid-season. We’re still at the early stages.” Per the network’s press release, the eight-episode revival will find the Connors continuing to deal with “the economic challenges of living paycheck to paycheck in 2018.”

Rumors of a revival were reported weeks ago and reportedly sparked the interest of several networks and Netflix, but the Conners’ home network ended up with the rights.

Original stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert are all reportedly signed on to return. Goodman’s character, Dan, died, so it’s unclear how he will proceed with the show. Barr and Gilbert will be serving as executive producers on the series alongside producers Tom Werner and Bruce Helford, as well as comedian Whitney Cummings.

The original series aired from 1988 to 1997 for nine seasons. It is described as one of the most realistic portrayals of a blue collar family in America.

“The Conners’ joys and struggles are as relevant -- and hilarious -- today as they were then, and there’s really no one better to comment on our modern America than Roseanne,” Dungey said in a statement.

Miss USA says affordable health care is a 'privilege,' not a right

The reign of the newly crowned Miss USA is off to a rocky start.

Even before Kara McCullough, Miss District of Columbia, was announced the winner, social media was in a frenzy over her responses during the Q&A segment of the broadcast.

McCullough, a 25-year-old physical scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was asked whether affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” she said. “As a government employee, I am granted health care, and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you have to have jobs.”

McCullough also set fingers a-tweeting when she said she did not consider herself a feminist.

McCullough, a woman of color, said she was worried about how audiences would view her natural hair in a sea of straight and teased pageant locks.

“When I chose to wear my hair curly, I was afraid. I didn’t know how people were going to accept it, if anyone was going to be receptive to it at all, but I felt like a Grecian goddess on stage!” she told Refinery 29.

But it was her viewpoints that ended up as the topic of debate rather than her hairstyle:

McCullough is a 2013 graduate of South Carolina State University, a historically black college in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

She follows the reign of Deshauna Barber, the former Miss USA who also hailed from D.C.

The organization, once owned by President Donald Trump, was sold in 2015 to talent agency and entertainment company WME/IMG.

'Morning Joe' hosts: Kellyanne Conway said she needed to take shower after defending Trump

"Morning Joe" hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski made some controversial claims Monday about the off-air behavior of White House adviser Kellyanne Conway during President Donald Trump's campaign.

While they admittedly aren’t Conway’s biggest fans, they suggested in their criticism that Conway, who was a member of Trump’s campaign team and later became campaign manager, secretly has a distaste for Trump.

Brzezinski made the following claims about Conway’s off-air attitude:

"This is a woman, by the way, who came on our show during the campaign and would shill for Trump in extensive fashion, and then she would get off the air, the camera would be turned off, the microphone would be taken off, and she would say, ‘Blech, I need to take a shower’ because she disliked her candidate so much," Brzezinski said.

Scarborough added: "I don't know that she ever said, 'I'm doing this for the money,' but, 'This is just my summer vacation, my summer in Europe' and basically, 'I'm gonna get through this.'"

Glenn Beck offers Bill O'Reilly a job with The Blaze in on-air interview

Glenn Beck, founder of conservative media outlet The Blaze, offered former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly a job in an on-air interview Friday. The two are former colleagues at Fox News.

>> Bill O’Reilly breaks silence on podcast

Beck left the network in 2011; Fox executives told Politico that he was losing sponsors, while Beck contends that he had “differences” with the network, including invoking his religious beliefs on-air. O’Reilly was fired earlier this year.

The offer came during a segment that saw O’Reilly praise Beck for having the foresight to leave Fox and control “his own destiny,” – unlike him. O’Reilly has claimed his firing was a “hit job” and that he was specifically targeted.

In the interview, O’Reilly states that his firing has to do with “destroying voices that the far left doesn’t like,” not the allegations of harassment that led to $13 million in settlements paid out to his accusers since 2016.

Beck offered this in response to O’Reilly’s praise.

“I thank you for that, Bill, and I would like to say publicly ... it’s why I would like you to work for The Blaze. ... I could not get the cable coverage by myself because I’m not powerful enough, unless you have a giant corporation behind you. ... If we could unite our powers for good, as opposed to evil — but that’s another conversation.”

It’s not clear what “evil” Beck was referring to.

WATCH: Melissa McCarthy's Spicer, Baldwin's Trump get spicy on 'SNL'

"Saturday Night Live" fans knew that host Melissa McCarthy would spice up the comedy show as White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in this week's highly anticipated episode. She didn't disappoint, turning up the heat with Alec Baldwin as President Donald Trump in a fiery viral moment.

>> Melissa McCarthy spotted driving 'Spicer podium' through NYC

In the sketch, which began with Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (Aidy Bryant) briefing reporters before McCarthy's Spicer sprang from the bushes, pushed his colleague out of the way and took over the podium to defend Trump.

"If he's crazy, he's crazy like a fox with mental problems," McCarthy-as-Spicer told a reporter who asked whether Trump was "unhinged." 

"Spicey" then addressed a follow-up question about the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the status of the Russia investigation.

“Trump is innocent," McCarthy's Spicer said. "How do we know? Because he told us so. Period. Then he hired lawyers to agree with him, and they’re going to prove it with a certified letter, which you know is the truth because it costs an extra $2 to have it certified.”

After explaining Comey's firing with Russian dolls, McCarthy-as-Spicer flew into a rage, throwing a pillar into the crowd when asked whether he was surprised that Trump didn't fire him before Comey.

But what upset "Spicey" even more was the suggestion that Trump hadn't been honest with him. The press secretary then took his motorized podium on a road trip to find the president, who was at his New Jersey golf club.

"Have you ever told me to say things that aren't true?" McCarthy's Spicer asked Baldwin's Trump, who replied, "Only since you started working here."

"Trump" then tried to ease his employee's fears with an unusual request.

"Kiss me," Baldwin's Trump said, embracing "Spicey." "I'm famous; it's OK."

"It this like 'The Godfather,' where you kiss me and no one ever sees me again?" McCarthy's Spicer asked. 

"Yes," Baldwin-as-Trump replied before the two shared an epic lip-lock.

Baldwin's Trump also appeared in the show's cold open, a parody of the real Trump's interview with NBC News' Lester Holt (Michael Che). In the sketch, Che's Holt is shocked when Baldwin-as-Trump admits to firing Comey because of the Russia probe.

"But that's obstruction of justice," Che-as-Holt said, to which "Trump" replied, "Sure, OK."

"Wait, so did I get him? Is this all over?" Che's Holt asked.

The bit also featured House Speaker Paul Ryan (Mikey Day) serving the president two scoops of ice cream.

The president later insisted that he's nothing like former President Richard Nixon.

"I am not a crook, OK? Plus, I bet Nixon only got one scoop of ice cream for dessert, but I get two scoops," "Trump" said.

Later that day, a family friend came over to deliver the heartbreaking news.

“I think I was in the kitchen and then I heard somebody come in and I looked and it was a friend of mine. Somebody that Paul knew, too. [A] family friend,” she continued. “And she looked like she just lost somebody, you know, she looked very upset. And then other people started arriving, including the two young men that Paul grew up with that were trying to get him out of the car.”

Despite the help of Walker’s family and friends, his mother admitted that she sometimes still found it difficult to continue on without him.

“I felt guilty for even feeling like that, but I really honestly would wish that I didn’t have to wake up in the morning,” she said. “I would never have taken my life, but I really felt that way. Because when you wake up, you have to realize it’s real, and you relive it all over again.”

Caleb, who shot scenes for “Furious 7” as his brother’s character, noted that while the experience was difficult, he’s glad he did it.

“I always wanted to be like him growing up, and so stepping into his shoes was special, but it was too soon, you know, looking back at it. Like, it was, like, just a few months afterward,” he said. “But the most special part was getting to know his other family that he had been working with for 15 years. Every cast member, every person on the set all had a special, unique bond with Paul.”
