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.

"The massive ratings success stunned Hollywood, prompting soul-searching about doing more series that realistically portray the economic problems of working-class families and reflect conservative political views as well as talk about rebooting more beloved sitcoms", Deadline.com reported. And with just one day of DVR playback factored it, those numbers already swell to 21.9 mil/6.2.

The reboot's first episode focused heavily on pro-Trump rhetoric, and many claim that the show's success stems purely from the fact that it doesn't demonize Trump voters.

Television star Roseanne Barr has posted an unusual message praising President Donald Trump for freeing "children held in bondage", in an apparent reference to a conspiracy theory about satanic child sex abuse at the highest levels of government. "They were unbelievable. ... and it was about us".

Roseanne will be back for more episodes-and it could be as soon as later this year if the series star gets her wish. He credited producer Mark Burnett, who brought Trump to reality TV in "The Apprentice", for breaking the good news about "Roseanne". Trump also raved about his connection to the show at an OH speech on Thursday.

Iger said they're "all reflections of the wide variety of people, backgrounds and opinions of the world we live in".

"[We're] just going to show a realistic depiction of this family and, you know, they have so much in common with other American families", the 65-year-old actress told ET. "He really understands ratings and how they measure things and that's kind of been an interest of mine, too, for a long time".

The ABC Television Network has picked up hit comedy revival "Roseanne" for an 11th season, Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment, announced today.

She later seemed to walk back on the tweets, writing, "I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it". "I mean, this might come as a complete shock to you, but we nearly lost our house, the way things are going".
