TV Show Plot For Roseanne

The TV show Roseanne was one of the most successful series of the late '80s and early '90s. It garnered top ratings and won numerous Emmy and Golden Globe awards.

The Roseanne series was the brain child of Rosanne Barr, and evolved from her "Domestic Godess" stand-up comedy act and subsequent HBO special.

The charaters of the Roseanne show were: Roseanne Conner and husband Dan (John Goodman); her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf); daughters Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and Becky (Lecy Goranson, later played by Sarah Chalke); son D.J. (Michael Fishman). Later in the series these characters were added to the household: Becky's husband Mark (Glenn Quinn); Darlene's boyfriend David (Johnny Galecki); and finally a new baby for Roseanne and Dan.

The Conners were a blue collar family who often worked low paying jobs, and struggled to make ends meat.

The Roseanne series often dealt with issues that made network executives nervous like the young son's masturbation, daughter's birth control and breast reduction surgery as well as gay and lesbian issues.

ABC aired a grand total of 222 episodes of the TV series Roseanne from 1988 to 1997.
