ABC’s move to cancel “Roseanne” after Roseanne’s shocking tweets could prove to cost the network tens of millions of dollars! The Hollywood Reporter reports that John Goodman, Sarah Gilbert, and Laurie Metcalf had salaries of $350,000 per episode and are still looking to be paid.
This was the memo that was released by ABC to the cast and crew after Roseanne’s tweets:

ROSEANNE BARR has LIT UP Twitter with well over 200 messages. The ‘highlights’ include her saying she thought Valerie Jarrett was white and that her Tweet was “insensitive, not racist.” She also ripped her former co-stars for “throwing her under the bus,” and she said she feels like “fighting back.”
stop saying that-it was insensitive not racist.

It’s a REAL long shot, but there are SOME reports about the possibility of “Roseanne” continuing in some capacity without ROSEANNE BARR. And there’s also talk of Roseanne herself getting a new gig on a “conservative” network.
