Trump Congratulates Roseanne in Personal Phone Call

"Next time Donald Trump doesn't have the time to call a family of a dead United States servicemen killed in action, remember that he has the time to call Roseanne Barr to congratulate her on 'ratings, ' " wrote one.

Over 18 million people tuned in for the premiere of the "Roseanne" reboot Tuesday night on ABC.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two episodes averaged a 5.1 rating in the key demographic coming in at 18.1 million viewers, making it the "highest-rated regularly-scheduled scripted show of the last few seasons, as well as the highest-rated sitcom in recent memory".

In contrast, Roseanne Conner is the rare TV protagonist who likes Trump, and the woman who plays her is the rare TV star who supports him. "She's talking about jobs and the economy and how her family nearly lost her house - and President Trump was actually talking about jobs".

Roseanne's sister on the show is portrayed as a Clinton supporter.

"We just kind of had a private conversation, but we talked about a lot of things", she said.

The call was confirmed by Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary.

Judging by ratings, the "Roseanne" reboot was clearly the most popular of the past year's resurrected TV shows.

The co-hosts of ABC's "The View" on Thursday discussed the revival of the hit sitcom "Roseanne". "We always like to be current and talk about the things that are happening in this country". "And when you sacrifice that in your life and say I don't think I'm going to lean on somebody else financially that means you've got to get up every day and go work".

"I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years. And so I wanted to bring it [the series] right down the middle, and we did", Barr said. I hope [the show] opens up civil conversation between people and not just mud slinging.

"I didn't see her on that", he said as he grinned, inferring he'd seen her as an adult film actress.
