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

"Roseanne's monster ratings earned praise from President Donald Trump

The same day it was announced Roseanne would be renewed for a second season on ABC, the title character returned to Twitter to deliver some of her conspiracy theory-tinged thoughts.

"We're thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes", ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in the release.

Donald Trump was quick to take - partial - credit for the huge success of Roseanne, but it turns out that the ABC reboot won't be giving the president a callout in the way he might have hoped.

President Trump personally called Barr to congratulate her after the premiere drew more than 18 million viewers. "I've known him for many years, and he's done a lot of nice things for me ... it was just a friendly conversation about working and television and ratings". Trump also raved about his connection to the show at an OH speech on Thursday.

It was as if Roseanne was bringing back ratings from the heyday of the '90s, not diluted by the multitude of network and cable options that 2018 viewing brings. "And it was about us!".

Roseanne Barr left many on social media scratching their heads Friday night after she repeated a right-wing conspiracy theory that President Trump freed children trapped in bondage.

In an election, people can vote for who they want anonymously - there is no personal brand you need to think about protecting when you throw the lever in a voting booth.

"I loved that damn show".

The revival will deal with politics, topical issues such as opioid addiction and access to healthcare, and features Roseanne's grown-up daughter Darlene, (played again by Sara Gilbert), whose young son is gender fluid.

Writer-actor Kumail Nanjiani countered Silverman's positive sentiment in a reply to her tweet, referring to Barr's controversial statement about a Parkland, Florida, survivor. Roseanne's support of Trump has troubled some and angered many more, especially those who accuse her of sharing alt-right conspiracy theories. "That's been something we've been really looking at with eyes open since that time".

It seems we're not the only ones who are emotional about the new Roseanne reboot.

After returning to Twitter, she has continued to tweet about QAnon, and in a cryptic tweet on March 24 tweeted "MKULTRA" - a seeming allusion to a 1960s Central Intelligence Agency psychological warfare program. "I mean, this might come as a complete shock to you, but we nearly lost our house, the way things are going".

Of course, Trump was watching and lapping up every minute of the return of Roseanne.
