Roseanne revival: Trump's name won't be spoken at all in first season

Roseanne barr

That decision reflects the politics of star Roseanne Barr, who frequently tweets out pro-Trump messages on Twitter. Some are critical and others are celebratory, but everybody is trying to put together the puzzle behind the success.

"I think it's a couple of issues", Bernhard, 62, told MSNBC on Wednesday.

Unsurprisingly, it met with the approval of US President, Donald Trump. "Hundreds each month", the actress tweeted.

Nobody will argue that human trafficking is reprehensible and any efforts against it are worthy of praise. (She cites the statistic that "41 percent of voters earning less than $50,000 voted for Mr. Trump while 53 percent voted for Hillary Clinton.") And as Mark Harris noted on Twitter, "the only confirmed Trump voter is insane old white grandma".

"I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it", Barr tweeted. After adding in a single day of delayed viewing, the ratings shot up to a 6.2 and 21.9 million viewers, making Roseanne the highest-rated premiere of the 2017-18 TV season by a long shot. Furthermore, many people are focusing on Roseanne Conner (and Barr) being a Trump supporter, and ignoring the fact that on the show, her sister Jackie (played by Laurie Metcalf) is an avid Hillary Clinton supporter, and is virulently anti-Trump. X-Files went from about 16 million viewers to a little over 9.5 million, while Will & Grace saw a decrease of about 3 million viewers (10 million to 7 million). "They said, "Hold please for the president of the United States of America" and that was about the most exciting thing, ever". In the next year, we'll see reboots of "Charmed", "Magnum P.I.", and "Murphy Brown", to name just a few. The always controversial comedian returned to ABC earlier this week with a brand new season of Roseanne. The media welcomed this television show because it portrayed a working-class household in the Trump period.

Barr's character on the recently rebooted "Roseanne" is a Trump supporter, which was part of the storyline in the revived series' first episode on Tuesday.

Reps for Barr and ABC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

-"Roseanne" gave ABC its highest ratings for a scripted program this year, and second among all scripted series to NBC's "This Is Us" following the Super Bowl (26.97 million viewers), Variety said.
