“The Conners” is a show that was born out the now-canceled “Roseanne.” It came about after the main star Roseanne Barr was fired for a controversial tweet.


The network then agreed with Barr to pull her off the new spin-off. “The Conners” has consistently remained one of the top comedies on TV each week.


It currently has a 92 percent Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics Consensus wrote:

"The Conners offers the comforts of its source show, but more focus on the family's ever-evolving dynamics adds a welcome layer of working-class empathy without losing any of the laughs."


Despite Barr’s character being killed off in the new show, Dan, Barr’s former onscreen-husband and her sister, Harris, have remained close. The two clashes once in a while but they enjoy being around each other and act like family.

Viewers can see their comedic relationship by tuning in on ABC this Tuesday.
