After President Donald Trump telephoned her personally to offer his congratulations for her sitcom's stellar ratings, Roseanne Barr is returning the favor by defending Trump in a series of freakish tweets posted Friday (March 30). The new Roseanne pilot raked in 18.2 million viewers in Live + Same Day ratings. With DVR playback included, the demo was actually a 6.24 rating and the total number of viewers went up to 21.8 million. The show drew in 18.4 million viewers, ten percent more than the numbers of its 1997 finale.
The comments appeared to be related to an article she shared that discusses her show and its relation to Trump. And make no mistake, Barr is a Trump fan: both she and her sitcom counterpart are Trump supporters and defend him by claiming that he won the the election thanks to poor voters looking for help, which is, objectively speaking, wrong.
"They were unbelievable", Trump said.
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump wrapped himself in the "Roseanne" ratings news. (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". ABC network has renewed the sitcom for a second season.
Mr. Trump raved about the show's ratings at a speech Thursday in OH, telling the crowd, "They were unbelievable".

"He talked about jobs, he said he'd shake things up", says Barr in the episode.
He pointed out that the series "was the biggest show on TV" in 1990, so "it is no surprise that with this base plus press attention, audiences turned up. That there's a huge market for this should be a gut-check for Hollywood and the mainstream media".
"[We're] just going to show a realistic depiction of this family and, you know, they have so much in common with other American families", the 65-year-old actress told ET.
But as The Washington Post recently reported, Barr's Twitter page had been a trove of Trump support and tweets promoting right-wing conspiracy theories like Pizzagate, up until she deleted most of her page's history in December.
