There can be a "Roseanne" without Roseanne.In Barr's absence, the trio of Dan Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert raises its acting game, turning the first episode into something like a one-act play.The pilot begins three weeks after Roseanne's funeral, with the family still coming to grips with its loss in its own trademark way with off-color barbs. ABC fired Barr from "Roseanne" after she posted a racist tweet."Roseanne" was always masterful at quickly popping its own moments of sweetness with a wry, sardonic needle, basically and gleefully mocking the traditional sitcom formula.
