'Roseanne' Cancellation costing ABC a lot of money experts say

The cancellation of the hit series “Roseanne” is going to cost ABC in a big way.

ABC shut the show down following star Roseanne Barr’s racist tweet about former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. The move puts the network on the hook for a hefty sum of money.

“The network has a right to cancel any show at any time, so they’re exercising their right to cancel the show,” Oliver Herzfeld, Entertainment lawyer and Chief Legal Officer at Beanstalk Group, told Fox News.
