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. "We can't wait to see what the Roseanne team has in store for next year". They were unbelievable! Over 18 million people!

With one day of delayed viewing factored in, the audience for the "Roseanne" premiere is now up to 21.9 million viewers.

The reboot, which only premiered on Tuesday, raked in a jaw-dropping 18.1 million viewers, making it the highest-rated sitcom in more than three years.

The show, in which Barr plays a blue-collar Trump voter, debuted on Tuesday and performed best in Tulsa, Oklahoma; Cincinnati, Ohio, and Kansas City, Missouri, respectively, all in states that Trump won in the 2016 presidential election. The giant numbers for the sitcom even caught the attention of President Trump, who called Roseanne Barr to personally congratulate her.

According to sources, Season 2 of Roseanne will consist of 13 episodes, up from nine episodes that will air in Season 1. "Roseanne's character is a Trump supporter - she's the only one - and we never say his name, actually, in the show".

If the success of "Roseanne" is all about appealing to Trump supporters, what's to make of the "Will & Grace" success?

The actor has been speaking candidly about his struggle with alcohol abuse during the show's original run, something that even led to a confrontation with co-star Roseanne Barr.




She added: "HEY! THIS MEANS WE GET TO DO A HALLOWEEN SHOW!"

James says he was open to letting the show use the couch, but anxious it would get damaged, so he had strict stipulations on its use.

The comedian's mention of Trump's part in stopping human trafficking has stirred up an interesting assortment of reactions on social media.

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.

"We just kind of had a private conversation, but we talked about a lot of things and he's just happy for me".

'We talked about a lot of things. He said Trump obsesses over ratings, "bashes Hollywood but craves its validation", and "divides the world into things that are "pro TRUMP" and 'against TRUMP'".
