'Roseanne' Revival Renewed For Season 2 By ABC, Comedy Series' 11th Overall

'The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago.

Roseanne, the 1990s television comedy about a working-class American family, has scored monster ratings on its return to ABC after 20 years, attracting more than 18 million viewers. The new Roseanne pilot raked in 18.2 million viewers in Live + Same Day ratings. With the next days' DVR viewing factored in as well, the show jumped to a 6.24 demo rating. According to ABC's math, with just one day of delayed viewership counted, the viewership jumped more than 3 million, to 21.9 million.

Needless to say, the show is not without controversy, especially with the titular character - like Barr herself - being a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump.

"Trump is about to take them all down, in their telling, often with sealed indictments that are hidden from the public".

The current season of the revived Roseanne will include nine episodes; Season 11 will have 13 episodes.

The success of the "Roseanne" reboot has thrilled President Donald Trump and his supporters.

"You're always nervous before you do something, and we're so grateful to the fans", she shared with her fellow co-hosts of the series. Trump made a personal phone call to Barr and boasted about her ratings at his rally in Ohio Thursday. Roseanne voted for Trump while Jackie still stood staunchly in Hillary Clinton's corner.

"He's just happy for me", Barr said of the former reality TV star.

He pointed out that the series "was the biggest show on TV" in 1990, so "it is no surprise that with this base plus press attention, audiences turned up".

Ben Shapiro, the immensely well-known conservative speaker and writer, fiercely criticized the show in a chain of tweets, which said that it "recasts Trump voters as social Leftists who just disagree about economics".

"QAnon believers are convinced that the world is run by a nefarious deep state cabal of Democrats, celebrities, and intelligence community figures (many of whom, they claim, are pedophiles)", writes blogger Will Sommer, who monitors right-wing media, on Mediate.

"I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it", Barr tweeted.

Adding, "I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years".
