Things have gotten so bad for the Roseanne Without Roseanne show “The Conners” that the remaining stars have been asked to take a pay cut. The ratings are really that bad. ABC made a huge mistake letting go of Roseanne. This used to be the top show on TV!
‘The Conners’ Stars Hit With Pay Cut Drama Amid Poor Ratings
John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf have learned Roseanne Barr‘s absence could have a dramatic effect on their wallets!
The Straight Shuter podcast reports The Conners is already in trouble without controversial comedian Barr around. Ratings are decreasing every week, and the stars’ paychecks might soon follow suit.
With the sitcom’s ratings dropping to 7 million, John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf “are too expensive to keep around,” a source told Straight Shuter. “They both earn $375,000 an episode, a number that was negotiated before the Roseanne scandal.”
“Now that the audience has disappeared along with the star, the only way to keep the show profitable is to ask both John and Laurie to take a pay cut,” the source noted.
