The Big-Name TV Pilots You'll Never See
Roseanne Barr and John Goodman (Downwardly Mobile, NBC)
We missed out on a "Roseanne" reunion when NBC passed on "Downwardly Mobile," another blue-collar comedy that would've reteamed former TV husband and wife
Roseanne Barr and
John Goodman. Barr would've played the proprietor of a trailer park full of colorful characters, with Goodman playing the park's handyman. (They wouldn't have been married, though.) But don't break out the harmonicas just yet; "Mobile" couldn't find a spot to park on NBC's fall schedule.
