Trump calls Roseanne to congratulate her on show reboot

Dan Connor Is Alive And Well In The 'Roseanne' Reboot

Some critics actually complained that the Roseanne Conner character (and probably her husband, Dan, played by Goodman) were depicted as Trump supporters who voted for him in the 2016 presidential election.

The New York Post reports that Trump was "impressed" with the huge ratings of the show that depicts Barr as the matriarch of a working-class family and also a Trump supporter.

Unclear if Trump is aware Barr had appeared on ABC's late-night show a few days earlier, during which her strongest argument for supporting Trump was "because we don't want [Mike] Pence".

ABC and the cast and crew of "Roseanne" aren't the only ones over the moon about the revival's humungous ratings. Barr, herself, is a vocal Trump supporter on screen and off.

Barr said Roseanne, which centers on a working-class family, is giving viewers a look at life that isn't being seen elsewhere. "And so I wanted to bring it (the series) right down the middle, and we did", said Barr.

It is hardly a surprise that Roseanne, which follows blue-collar family the Connors and stars the comedian as a Trump fan, hit big with Middle America.

Ms. Barr said that she has known Mr. Trump for years and that the call was "friendly".

'Chief plotter' Warner will not captain Australia in future: CA
All three players will, however, be permitted to play club cricket "to maintain links with the cricket community". South Africa opener Hashim Amla took no delight in the enforced omission of Australia's shamed trio.

Roseanne's ratings have baffled media analysts, who note that much of Tuesday's audience came from viewers who weren't even born when the first show ran.

On Tuesday night, ABC aired two back-to-back episodes of "Roseanne".

According to a source, he is reportedly extremely interested in the high ratings that Roseanne revival has received.

Donald Trump called Roseanne Barr to congratulate her on the massive success of the reboot of Roseannne.

Along with the sprinkling of Trump and political quips in the show's dialog, there were props that also suggested the polarized political views among the characters.

Laurie Metcalf's (Jackie Harris) schedule is particularly hard to get, and Cummings said they are hoping to pin her for a few months straight. "So I felt that was very real, and something that needed to be discussed".

"The idea that people can agree to disagree is kind of missing from everything", she said.
