The Gateway Pundit reports that the Roseanne relaunch took America by storm on Tuesday night.
Finally there is a show on national television for the other half of America.
Roseanne was back and she’s pro-Trump, anti-Hillary, anti-resistance and pro-American.
The New York Times reports…
When last we saw Roseanne Conner, in 1997, the character was sitting alone on that old living room couch, after revealing that her husband, Dan, had died of a heart attack and that all nine seasons of “Roseanne” had been a grief-induced fantasy about her family. (Or something like that.)
Now Roseanne is back, the fantasy is out and Trump is in.
The show’s Emmy-winning star, Roseanne Barr, returns Tuesday night to ABC with a nine-episode revival season. Dan’s back too, once again played by John Goodman, as is daughter Darlene (Sara Gilbert, who is also an executive producer) and much of the original cast.
“Roseanne” was a bona fide trailblazer the first time around, with its focus on blue-collar Americans, its diversity of L.G.B.T. characters, and its star — a woman who did not look or sound like a typical television female lead. The new “Roseanne” is topical in its own ways, starting with Roseanne Conner’s full-throated support for President Trump. Ms. Barr is a Trump backer as well, to the dismay of many fans; she argued on “Jimmy Kimmel” recently that supporting Mr. Trump was critical to keeping Mike Pence from the presidency.
Roseanne was a ratings blowout. The relaunch was the most watched comedy in 4 years and even beat the Stormy Daniels Sunday “60 Minutes” video in the adult demo.

The return delivered an incredible 18.2 million viewers along with an equally impressive 5.1 rating among adults 18-49.
According to ABC, this is the highest-rated comedy telecast on any network in nearly four years (since a premiere episode of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory from 2014).
So, yes, even bigger than NBC’s mega-hit This Is Us during any of its regularly scheduled episodes, where the weepy dramedy usually tops out around a 3.0 adult demo rating (the special This Is Us post-Super Bowl episode was bigger, but that’s to be expected).
In the adult demo, it also trumps Sunday’s blockbuster 60 Minutes episode which featured an interview with Stormy Daniels.
Ben Shapiro warns conservatives that Roseanne is in fact radical liberal left propaganda masquerading as a conservative program.
