As a devout Roseanne viewer who has seen every Roseanne episode at least 10 times it was hard for me to hear of her firing and the show getting cancelled. I was reluctant about "The Conners" but I found that it is just as funny. It really is. Aunt Jackie is great and Dan carries the show well. I will say that I HATE the opening of the show without Roseanne's laugh. They should have totally changed it. That's the only reason I'm giving it an 8.
