The Conners, in a new twist, integrated real-time election results from Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary into Live from Lanford, Tuesday’s episode that was broadcast live with special broadcasts for both the east and west coasts, with some differences.
In the East Coast version, Mark (Ames McNamara) prepared for a school assignment at primary school, because the chaos in the house was due to a leaking roof.
While the family huddled in the kitchen of the house – which was freezing cold on the winter evenings – there was a discussion about the events in the evening, where the characters explained their perspectives on the political process.

Becky (Lecy Goranson) said about the candidates: “Some of them are real, really terrible; If you vote, you can be proud to help someone who is just horrible. “
While the family members searched the house’s pantry for food, Mary (Jayden Rey) sent a tweet to President Donald Trump requesting his help – with dinner. She wrote: “Hello, @realdonaldtrump. Because you work for us, can you send us some cheese packages for our macaroni? This is @realmaryconner from Lanford, Illinois, where Chicago is. “
When Mark called Alexander Hamilton, Darlene (Sara Gilbert) replied: “He was good, but he wasn’t a president, just a very cool character in a musical that we can never afford to see – and shoot.”
Current lines about the candidates sprout in the episodes, as Becky said: ‘Elizabeth Warren offered free childcare to the caucuses. I was so close to flying to Iowa that I could go to a movie. “

Also in the episode, Mark and his older sister Harris (Emma Kenney) got a verbal fight, because he admitted that he blamed her for leaving the house, because he now has to take care of himself.
In a subsequent exchange, Mark Harris said he had problems with Austin, a boy in the closet he is involved with. Harris told her to tell him “Boy, goodbye,” and move on.
Another storyline explored in the episode was the continued romance of Dan (John Goodman) with Louise (Katey Sagal) after Roseanne’s death after an overdose of storylines.
When she left, his children Becky, Darlene and D.J. (Michael Fishman) wanted to hold them together with a festive get-together at Casa Bonita, but things imploded.
Best intentions: Darlene (Sara Gilbert) led a festive get-together at Casa Bonita in the hope of maintaining her father’s relationship, in vain
Angry: Then lashed out at his daughters because he had disrupted his love life
Furthermore: the daughters of Dan continue to support him in his life as a widower
Dan admits to his daughters that he missed Roseanne (who was killed from the series last year in an overdose of storyline) and was stopped by a church in his fear, where a priest gave him a tip about continuing.
“He told me to write a letter to your mother about how guilty I felt about Louise and then set him on fire and let go,” he said.
In the final scene, Harris answered the phone, answering Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) with a dead-on impression of Hillary Clinton from the other room, and giving her non-partisan reasons why she could cast a vote in this election year.
‘Some of these people are trying to help you: Warren and Sanders want to pay your tuition fees; [Andrew] Yang wants to give you $ 1,000 dollars a month; and Biden wants to decriminalize marijuana, “she said. Harris said in response: “Wow, if I ever go to college, I need some weed and spend money; OK, I vote for them! “

Good impression: Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) showed her deadly imitation of Hilary Clinton in the show
Double effort: the episode was broadcast with two live broadcasts, one on the east coast and one on the west coast
The West Coast broadcast was similar in storyline and dialogue, with adapted news reports and lines based on the outcome of the primary, in which Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders prevailed between broadcasts.
The next broadcast had a slow start in the midst of an ABC News announcement that Sanders had come out as the winner in the evening.
Mark joked in the second episode: “They say Bernie won, but there could be some Russian hacking. Putin is in second place. ”
Guest star: Katy Segal currently plays the lead role in The Conners
Behind the scenes: the audience watched from their seats
Going live: The Conners follows on sitcom Will & Grace, which at the time also broadcast live episodes
Curtain call: the cast was collected on the set while filming
Gilbert, speaking with USA today Tuesday said that performing in a live episode has its ups and downs.
“There is a clear risk that you will make mistakes or feel embarrassed,” she said. “But the truth is that the audience is always crazy if live things don’t go perfectly, so there’s no really big risk.”
She added that the main benefit of Tuesday’s unique broadcast was the “awareness of votes.”
