Roseanne kids

"We're thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes", ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said in the release. "The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago". With the next days' DVR viewing factored in as well, the show jumped to a 6.24 demo rating.

Journalists quickly noted that Barr's claim appeared to indicate her support for a conspiracy theory that alleges the existence of a massive child-trafficking ring linked to rogue elements in the government tied to Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonPoll: Young people strongly oppose Trump Conway blasts Clinton: She won't stop talking about 2016 election GOP tax message hits a snag MORE and the Democratic Party. On Wednesday he called Barr - a longtime friend - to celebrate. (She cites the statistic that "41 percent of voters earning less than $50,000 voted for Mr. Trump while 53 percent voted for Hillary Clinton.") And as Mark Harris noted on Twitter, "the only confirmed Trump voter is insane old white grandma".

"Over 18 million people", he said. "And it was about us!".

Ms. Barr, 65, has tweeted several times in the past about QAnon and other conspiracy theories, and she's previously linked from her Twitter account to questionable content published by far-right websites including Infowars and The Gateway Pundit, The Daily Beast reported. He really understands ratings and how they measure things'. "I was flying on the day of the premiere and I was kind of watching the clock and I was like 'Oh it's coming on in NY, oh it's coming on in Chicago, '" the 43-year-old recalled.

The sitcom's red-state appeal is a factor for sure - but it's not the only one.

Trump has historically been highly attuned to television ratings, including his own as the host of NBC's "The Apprentice". "Matt Drudge tweeted: "'ROSEANNE' RATINGS BLOWOUT". In Cincinnati, "60 Minutes" on WKRC-TV (Channel 12) drew a 20.2 rating and 32 percent audience share -more than double the combined viewership for network programs on Channels 5, 9 and 19 (9.25 rating). "That was the point".

While ABC is celebrating the reboot's success, many people are pointing to some of the comedian's more controversial views and tweets. The original "Roseanne" aired for 10 seasons and was once the No. 1 show on television. There's not as much Trump talk in the seven remaining episodes, producers and executives told The New York Times on Thursday. "That's a lot. John [Goodman] and Laurie [Metcalf] have movie careers".

"He talked about jobs, Jackie", Roseanne said. "But we had not been thinking almost enough about economic diversity within our own country. Most of the time we see how Trump supporters have horns and they're frightful and they're ruining the country".

"I have worked with victims of trafficking for decades & supported the fight against it". Ultimately, Roseanne is about a family that manages to stay together no matter what. "That there's a huge market for this should be a gut-check for Hollywood and the mainstream media". "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 am not saying that none of these women work".
