After a 20-year hiatus, Tuesday night ABC aired the premiere of Roseanne’s reboot. The blue-collar working-family sitcom drew an unanticipated viewership of 18.4 million viewers drawing the attention of original fans, new viewers and even President Trump.
Following her debut, Roseanne Barr received a personal phone call from President Trump congratulating her on the show’s ratings. Roseanne is a Trump supporter both on and off screen, and the season premiere made sure to touch on this hot-button topic.
On Good Morning America, Barr relayed that the phone conversation with Trump was a friendly conversation about ratings and working in television. She also shared that she was excited about the call.
While Barr made mention that she does not agree with everything Trump has said and done, she did claim, “I’ve known him for many years and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years.”
The sitcom star also drew attention from Donald Trump Jr. who suggested Barr consider a late night tv spot.
