Well it probably *was* the heir to that--Most 80s sitcoms aren't well remembered today because they were all about beautiful yuppie people living in suburbs or big cities and nice houses. Roseanne actually had to fight for her life to prevent the show from turning into that.
Joss Whedon was one of the writers on the show near its beginning and without having seen Age of Ultron I'm going to guess that his all-time career low was this godawful episode he wrote during the show's early years about Roseanne having to work for a 17 year old boss (played by some guy who was one of the worst actors of all time) at a crappy fried chicken restaurant.
It was the biggest thing on TV at the time.
