Jimmy Kimmel decided not to address the legal troubles for “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin on his sit-down with her co-star Bob Saget, on Tuesday night’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”
For seven seasons Loughlin appeared on “Full House” with saget (1987-1995), co-host Rebecca Katsopolis playing morning show- fans of the show remembered her, “Aunt Becky.”In the recent Netflix reboot, they both reprised their roles “Fuller House,” which is ending this year.

Jimmy Kimmel: “The Roseanne I Know could probably use some compassion”
Roseanne Barr has a history of making racist remarks and of fanning the flames of conspiracy theories.ABC cancelled her show on 29th May after she attacked a former Obama official on twitter.
“It’s like living in a maze,” she told the writer, Mike Sager. “It’s like that old woman who keeps adding on to her house . … But the parts don’t get along, and some of them have some really strange ideas about how to defend,” the comedian said. But after a decade of therapy, she said at the time, she managed to integrate the personalities and achieve “co-consciousness.”

In a 2012 interview with Piers Morgan, Barr said:  “the issue of mental health is very near and dear to me.” After many years, she said: “I’m more centered; I’m in the best place that I’ve ever been in. A lot of that is because I have done the work.”

But Barr has also been known for her unhinged, controversial tweets in recent years. In fact, Kimmel discussed her Twitter usage when he invited Barr onto his show in March to discuss the reboot of her show “Roseanne.”

When Barr mentioned her own campaign for president in 2012, Kimmel said, “you were kind of the original crazy tweeter running for president.”

Laughing, Barr seemed to agree. “Trump totally stole my act,” she said. “I ran my whole campaign on Twitter in 2012.”

Kimmel asked her about her attacks on Hillary Clinton, saying, “I think you accused her of being a murderer on Twitter, didn’t you?”

“I did not!” Barr insisted. Kimmel responded with a chuckle, “Roseanne, you know I’m going to find that tweet in the next 40 seconds, right?”

Barr cursed at Kimmel, as they both continued laughing.

“I’m getting in so much trouble,” Barr also said.

“No, you’re not getting in trouble,” Kimmel said. “Listen, you’re expressing your views, as crazy as they may be.”

“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” aired a rerun on Thursday night. But on Wednesday night, Kimmel addressed the news that ABC was putting an end to “Roseanne.”

However, “You’re not going to believe this, but she tweeted something outrageous,” Kimmel said sarcastically. “I know, yeah, right, the president did it, too, it’s crazy.”
He called the ABC show’s cancellation a “huge blow” to his network.

“We don’t have much on this network,” he said. “We’re hoping the NBA finals goes 11 games this year. We’re still airing ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos,’ okay? ‘Roseanne’ was a very bigly hit for ABC, and we needed it.”

But, Kimmel joked, “the show must go on.”

“I have an idea that I think makes this work for everyone,” he said. In a sketch, he suggested a reboot of the show without Barr, focused on her co-star John Goodman, who plays Dan Conner. Its title? “Dan.”
