'Roseanne' Reboot Renewed for Season 2 by ABC

'Roseanne' Reboot Renewed for Season 2 by ABC

All of the original "Roseanne" cast members returned for the revival, including John Goodman as Roseanne's (Roseanne Barr) husband, who died in the final season 21 years ago.

U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday latched onto the huge viewership for the revival of ABC's hit 1990s working-class comedy "Roseanne" as evidence that his supporters want shows that speak to their concerns. "They were unbelievable, over 18 million people and it was about us".

With just one day of Nielsen's delayed viewing counted, the return of Roseanne saw its total viewer count grow by a best of season for any premiere telecast of over +3.4 million viewers to a 21.869 million average audience.

"Roseanne Barr is a Trump supporter who seems to already be taking a page from the president's playbook and causing controversy on Twitter", CNN national reporter Brynn Bingras reported.

Even if you did not watch the season premiere of "Roseanne" on ABC last week, you've likely heard by now: the reboot was a smash ratings success.

On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump called to congratulate Barr on her nominal show's success. "I think a lot of it is also people - they support Roseanne and, like you said, she is a vocal Trump supporter and she does drift into these really insane conspiracy theories".

While another tweet suggested that if she continued walking the political path, her show might provoke chants of boycott.

Police sealed off the area and began a search for the driver, while the army stepped up security around the barracks, Brulon said. According to France Info, "there has been no information so far whether it was a terrorist attack or not".

"I think the great thing about Roseanne, and the writers, and the way they create the stories is that it's about the family", she said. But this could be the one TV series that evolves into a ratings outlier.

As Behar's cohosts giggled along with her criticism of Trump, others offered their theories about why the show is still so popular.

"Roseanne" originally ran on the network from 1988 to 1997.

But as The Washington Post recently reported, Barr's Twitter page had been a trove of Trump support and tweets promoting right-wing conspiracy theories like Pizzagate, up until she deleted most of her page's history in December.

"They plugged into what's going on in the country right now which is that in families when you're a Trump voter versus a Trump hater there's a lot of friction and a lot of fights within the family", Behar said.

Adding, "I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years".
