Roseanne Barr's reality show 'Roseanne's Nuts' is canceled
Roseanne Barr's reality show "Roseanne's Nuts," which showed her running a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, has been canceled after one season.
"We are not renewing the series," a Lifetime Television spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Thursday. "Its finale was on September 16."
"Roseanne's Nuts" debuted in July on Lifetime Television and its ratings had since then dropped from 0.7 rating among adults aged 18 to 49 to 0.3, Deadline.com said.
The show also starred Barr's boyfriend, John Argent, and her son Jake Pentland. The three live on the farm with their two dogs, Moxie and Zim. The series also showed the actress taking surfing lessons, attempting to curb her snoring disorder, hosting a luau and dealing with menopause.
Barr also details her life experiences in her book "Roseannearchy: Dispatches from the Nut Farm," which was released in January.
The actress shot 16 half-hour episodes of "Roseanne's Nuts."
"If I could just get these nuts into the hands and mouths of hungry people I could be doing a good thing for the world," Barr told OnTheRedCarpet.com in July, while promoting the series. "Since I got through menopause, it's been really important to me to try to figure out how to save the world before I die so I don't roast in hell forever."
"I just love the idea of politics of food and farming on television," she added. "I just thought it was kind of a good thing to show and to encourage people to start growing their own gardens and start cutting your food bills. I wanted to show a different way of going about things that I think could be helpful to people."
Barr is best known for her hit sitcom "Roseanne." The show ran between 1988 and 1997 and earned four Emmys - one for Barr, who played the title role, a cynical working family woman, and three for Laurie Metcalf, who played her sister, Jackie. The show also starred John Goodman as Barr's husband.
Despite the cancellation of "Roseanne's Nuts," Barr is set to continue her television career with a new sitcom she is set to write and headline called "Downwardly Mobile." The project, which was announced in August, is being developed by 20th Century Fox Television and also involves the actress' boyfriend.
