LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Viacom Inc on Tuesday said it will stop airing reruns of ABC’s original “Roseanne” after the network canceled the top-rated series following racist tweets by its star Rosesanne Barr, a company spokesman said.

Viacom’s Paramount, TV Land and CMT cable networks had been broadcasting episodes of the original 1990s “Roseanne.”
