ABC Could Announce ‘Roseanne’ Reboot Any Day Now

ABC could announce ‘Roseanne’ reboot any day now.

TMZ broke the story … ABC has been exploring the possibility of rebranding the show and focus on Sara Gilbert‘s character, Darlene. John Goodman is “very interested” … as is the rest of the cast and crew.

There is a possible snag. Although ABC seems to have good cause to fire Roseanne as both the star and Executive Producer, the network may be contractually bound to pay her a fee or back end or both for her participation in creating the show. ABC, of course, could argue it’s now a different show.

Ligonier Beach closing permanently | WPXI

A staple in Ligonier Township is shutting down for good.

“It’s a historic site, been around since 1925. It’s had big names that sang there and played there so it is a surprise and it’s something we were just as surprised as anybody,” Ligoneir Township Manager Terry Carcella said.

In its heyday, it attracted the likes of Dean Martin and Perry Como.

While some neighbors would like to see it return as is, the future remains uncertain.

The game, which is created by video game company Valve, is set to be released on June 6 via digital store Steam, according to a report by Variety.
