President Trump called Roseanne Barr, congratulated her on ratings success

The revival of “Roseanne” debuted to the second-best ratings of any scripted TV episode all year — and it looks like President Donald Trump took notice. The revival of “Roseanne” features many of the original’s characters, including Barr, Sara Gilbert, and John Goodman. Roseanne is a Trump supporter in the show, with her TV sister Jackie Harris (Laurie Metcalf) written as a Hillary supporter. Trump was “enthralled” with “Roseanne’s” “huge” ratings, and the President also thanked Barr for her support.
