Tuesday’s new episode of “Roseanne,” the third-to-last of a surprisingly successful revival season, is titled “Go Cubs!”
But it’s not really about the show’s location in the fictional Chicago suburb of Lanford. Yes, we’ve seen Dan Conner (John Goodman) wearing a Cubs World Series victory sweatshirt in a previous episode.
But this edition (7 p.m. Tuesday, WLS-Ch. 7) offers a much less localized lesson, one that begins when Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) spies extraordinary amounts of fertilizer in the backyard of the new neighbors, who are — wait for it — a Muslim family. And it delivers that lesson, albeit with a hammer that is more sledge than ball peen.
Still, given the cranky-Trump-supporter persona the show’s star, the comedian Barr, has been displaying on Twitter of late — including a very blue tweet beef with Stormy Daniels — it’ll probably come as a relief to fair-minded viewers that the episode lands on a pro-tolerance, anti-ignorance message, however bumpy the ride along the way.
