Morning Becomes Obnoxious was the 21st episode of Season 8 of Roseanne, also the 194th overall series episode. It was written by Leif Sandaas and was directed by Gail Mancuso. It originally aired on ABC-TV on April 9, 1996.

SynopsisEdit

After an impromptu interview at the diner goes spectacularly well, Roseanne prepares to "Wake Up Chicago" on a morning TV talk show (with Jackie as her manager) with a news commentator who has a unique and "opinionated blue-collar outlook". Meanwhile, David plans for his and Darlene's wedding, but offends Bev as well.

Plot summaryEdit

A producer and reporter from "Wake up Chicago" come into the diner wanting to do a "Man-on-the-Street" interview about the diner owners - to which Roseanne, Jackie, and Leon readily, and eagerly agree. Leon stumbles through his interview nervously, like a deer caught in headlights. Jackie babbles through her's like a hyper manic who's been off her medication. But Roseanne nails her interview, and gets a job offer to do a one-minute spot on the air - where Roseanne gets to speak her mind about whatever she wants. God help TV.

'Note: Lecy Goranson, who plays Becky Conner-Healy, does not appear.
