Could Roseanne Barr and John Goodman strike gold twice?

Deadline.com is reporting that Goodman's in "final negotiations" to join his former "Roseanne" co-star's new pilot, "Downwardly Mobile," in which Roseanne would run a mobile home park and Goodman would play someone who works there and has "a buddy relationship" with her.

The show's said to be the creation of its star, her boyfriend John Argent and former "Roseanne" exec producer Eric Gilliland. Given that Argent's IMDB.com listing seems to consist of credits involving his playing himself or otherwise working on shows with Roseanne, this sounds like a potential nightmare behind the scenes.

But it would be good to see Roseanne back onscreen with the one guy whose marriage to her -- however fictional -- actually seemed to work.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
