How ‘The Conners’ moves on without fierce (and fired) matriarch Roseanne

John Goodman is eager to build a new series, ABC’s “The Conners,” from the wreckage of last spring’s “Roseanne” cancellation, but there’s clearly something – make that someone – missing.

“It felt great to be back, but there’s a hollow center. I miss Rosie real bad,” says Goodman, who worked with Roseanne Barr for a nine-year run starting in 1988 and last year’s top-rated revival before she was fired after a racist tweet last spring.

With the exception of Barr, Goodman, who plays Dan Conner, will press on with the rest of the cast in the spinoff (Tuesday, 8 EDT/PDT), which includes Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson and Michael Fishman.
