It looks like Roseanne Barr is just as much the Trump-lover off-screen as she is on-screen! The 65-year-old TV mom spoke out about her pleasant relationship with POTUS on Sunday, April 29, at the Jerusalem Post Conference — namely gushing over a phone call the two shared following the premiere of the Roseanne reboot in March.
"I've met him several times when he was just a civilian, or whatever you call it, not the president, just a showbusiness person and he was always nice to me. He said, ‘Congratulations on the ratings,’ cause he’s really into ratings like I am,” she explained.
As it turns out, the 45th president isn't the only person to take notice of Roseanne's stellar ratings. In fact, audiences are so in love with the reboot, that on March 30, it was revealed that the show was renewed for Season 11! "We're thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes," Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment, said in a statement. "The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can't wait to see what the Roseanne team has in store for next year."
Considering the fact that, according to E! News, the revival's one-hour premiere episode attracted 18.2 million viewers and earned a 5.1 rating in the desirable 18-to-49-year-old demographic, we suspect Roseanne is here to stay — and that's one thing the whole country (Donald Trump included) can happily agree on!
Be sure to catch new episodes of Roseanne Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
