Setting aside the vast political, cultural and financial ramifications of ABC’s decision — those have been well covered, we believe — the loss of Roseanne has left a gaping hole in a lot of TV fans’ DVR queues. (Heck, even the reruns are getting yanked off the air.) But the good news is, thanks to the Peak TV era we live in, there are plenty of alternatives out there that may be able to scratch that nagging Roseanne itch of yours. At least a dozen, by our count.

Plus, all 12 are available to catch up on via a major streaming service, so you can fill your summer with hours and hours of laughter. (Just not that cackling laugh of Roseanne’s, we’re afraid.)
