ABC has renewed Roseanne for Season 11, the network announced on Friday. "I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now", tweeted the actor, whose show, Roseanne, returned to ABC Tuesday to sky high ratings. The ABC comedy averaged a massive 18.1 million viewers and a 5.1 rating in the key demo. With the next days' DVR viewing factored in as well, the show jumped to a 6.24 demo rating.
Although the Roseanne reboot has been a huge success for ABC, drawing 18.44 million viewers, not everyone is a fan of the show.
The show has also made headlines on the politics front, with its protagonist Roseanne Conner turning out to be a Trump supporter, just like Barr herself. It's actually a Hollywood fantasy of what Trump voters are: "people who agree with Hollywood elites on values, but just disagree on economics because they're old white factory workers".
ABC has been laying the foundation for a second season of its Roseanne revival in the weeks leading to its debut and cast deals for a second season recently closed ahead of the premiere.
It will be great to see if show favorites like Martin Mull, Johnny Galecki, and Sandra Bernhard will add to the show's new platform.
"Look at 'Roseanne.' Look at her ratings", Trump stated.
The actress and co-host of Global's "The Talk", who spearheaded the reboot of the classic sitcom and also serves as the show's executive producer, appeared on "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen" Thursday. where she answered questions about the new "Roseanne".
The working-class sitcom Roseanne was massively popular in its original run from 1988-1997, but even so, no one knew if its formula would still work in today's very different world.
"He's just happy for me", Barr said of the former reality TV star.
In response to the storm of speculation, Barr posted again a few hours after the initial tweet: 'I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it.
Trump said the mainstream media hadn't "figured it out yet". "Really right wing. I think that is going to be something that people are going to pay more attention to, particularly as the show finds success".
