President TrumpDonald John TrumpKushner has called Bolton for advice over past year: report Jeb Bush hits Trump: I go home to children "who actually love me" Sanders to visit MS for anniversary of MLK assassination MORE called Roseanne Barr on Wednesday night to congratulate her for the successful debut of her show "Roseanne", which debuted on ABC with a two-episode premiere on Tuesday with an average 18.1 million. It premiered Tuesday on ABC to a whopping 18.2 million viewers. They swarmed to watch the much anticipated big move into the future for Roseanne, as the last time fans got to see Barr and the rest of the cast in the original show was decades ago.

Barr received a phone call direct from Trump on Wednesday, to congratulate her on the high ratings of the rebooted comedy series. "So it was just a friendly conversation about work and television and ratings", she said.

Barr has publicly defended Trump in real life, just as she has on screen. As it happens, Roseanne Barr herself voted for Trump.

The show "Roseanne" was brought back to ABC in the past week after more than 20 years after its original nine-season run ended. The show's reboot was pitched as timely for the Trump's administration, and with what's happening in the country these days, the story resonates with a lot of Americans.

Laurie Metcalf's (Jackie Harris) schedule is particularly hard to get, and Cummings said they are hoping to pin her for a few months straight.




Trump is notoriously obsessed with TV ratings, but Barr had a more positive spin on this particular quirk of his.

ABC aired two episodes of "Roseanne" on Tuesday. "Matt Drudge tweeted: "'ROSEANNE' RATINGS BLOWOUT". "There are a lot of things he's done and said that I don't agree with in the same way there are probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said you don't agree with".

"I think he voices them quite well", she argued.

"Each side, we're both guilty of being so afraid of the other side's point of view, and not talking to each other and assuming everybody aligns 100 percent with their candidate, instead of seeing what each individual's point of view is", she said.
