Lifetime cancels Roseanne's Nuts 
Even a trip to the nut farm couldn't help Roseanne Barr's attempt at reality TV: Lifetime has canceled "Roseanne's Nuts" after one season.

The Emmy-winning "Roseanne" star confirmed the news on Twitter, writing:  "Roseanne's Nuts has been canceled ... thanks everyone for watching!" Lifetime didn't immediately return requests for confirmation.

The series premiered in July and documented the 58-year-old's life working on her macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, along with boyfriend Johnny and her son Jake. The show got off to an impressive start, with 1.63 million viewers.

But ratings slipped and the series changed time slots for its last four installments. Its last episode was on Sept. 16.

The series adds to Barr's failed attempts at reality TV. Her first time around was in 2003 with ABC, in "The Real Roseanne Show," chronicling the making of her ABC Family cooking program, "Domestic Goddess." Both projects were halted after she underwent a hysterectomy.
