Fishman was among "The Conners" stars who came out for the premiere of the show on Tuesday night at the Paley Center - the same night it made its debut on ABC. Roseanne wasn't a fan of the way they let her character go, and she hopped on Twitter to react to the news.

It was like there was a death in the family.
"The Conners" premiere just didn't capture the magic of "Roseanne". There's certainly enough story with these characters to make a terrific show.

"The Conners" opened Tuesday at about where "Roseanne" left off.
ABC exec Andy Kubitz told Vulture that the show will be "the number one new show for the season" if even half of the "Roseanne" audience tunes in.
It was also Fox's most watched comedy on any night in almost seven years, excluding National Football League nights, and was by far the top-rated show of Friday night. "I hope that energy comes through".
Whatever happens, Roseanne Barr will not be on The Conners ... at least not any time soon.
