Another odd factor is the sheer speed at which the show was cancelled. Mark Evanier has speculated that they may have been prepared beforehand:

Deciding to ax one of your most popular shows is not an action taken on impulse. It's the kind of thing you run past a lot of people including lawyers to determine any unforeseen legal complications. It would usually take a day or three…unless some execs there had already asked the musical question "What do we do if Roseanne returns to her old antics?"
