Roseanne back on TV early

Her ABC sitcom may be history after nine seasons on the air, but Roseanne isn’t disappearing from primetime entirely.

The queen of comedy will guest star in the one-hour season premiere of NBC’s “3rd Rock From the Sun” on Sept. 24, playing the intended alien bride of Commander Dick Solomon (John Lithgow). Her arrival with Dick’s alien family members serves to snag his engagement to Earthling Mary (Jane Curtin).

Roseanne’s also planning a guest stint next season on CBS’ “The Nanny,” playing the cousin of Fran Fine (Fran Drescher.)
