The choice ABC made has an immediate consequence. After cancelling “Roseanne,” ABC is going to take an immediate hit to their pocketbook.

Conservatives are banding together to boycott the network. They are angry about the double standard with “The View” being allowed to be on the air, while “Roseanne” was cut due to some tweets by Barr. Not to mention ABC just brought on Keith Olbermann to work at ESPN.

Conservative viewers aren’t the only thing ABC is losing. They’re also losing ad revenue.

The show “Roseanne” was a huge hit on the network. Advertisers were throwing money at their stellar ratings. Now that the show is gone, companies no longer have that huge audience to put their products in front of.

Per The Washington Times:

“The abrupt cancellation of ‘Roseanne’ will not come cheap,” saidLacey Rose, television editor for The Hollywood Reporter.

“Although the decision was widely viewed as necessary given the racist nature of star Roseanne Barr’s social media attack on senior Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett, several sources with knowledge of the situation suggest that ABC and parent company Disney could be on the hook for tens of millions of dollars,” Rose reported.

“And that doesn’t include the foregone ad revenue,” she said, citing an industry report from Kantar Media that said that the revival of the 1990s-era sitcom was expected to drive $60 million in advertising dollars.
