Barr believes that what made the original Roseanne so successful was the fact that it was so relatable.
"I've apologized a lot, it's been two months", Barr said. "I made a mistake, obviously".
"I feel that I have apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense", she said. "It cost me everything, my life's work, and I've paid the price for it".
"I was so sad, and I'm so sad that anyone thinks that of me", Barr told Hannity. "Don't assume you know what I meant, because I think you don't know what I meant, and I would like to make it clearer to you what I did mean".
Barr also addressed Jarrett directly and apologized for the tweets, advocating for a broader dialogue on race relations.

From that perspective, the issue wasn't exclusively what Barr said or tweeted, but given her behavior, the uncertainty regarding what she might say or do next.
Oh Hannity's primetime show, as in her YouTube video, Barr said she had apologized to ABC execs after her racist tweet, and offered to go on The View or some other ABC program to explain and apologize.
This is a developing story.
Hannity asked her several times for an apology, but Barr seemed to hesitate.
The comedian said she was "shocked" that "everybody started saying I was racist, which is like the worst thing you can call a Jewish person, especially one like me that worked with Holocaust survivors". She said she was stunned by the negative reaction, which Hannity noted was almost universal, The Guardian reported. She also occasionally got emotional, such as when she talked about her African American godson. "I thought she was Middle Eastern". I'm sorry you feel harm and hurt and I never meant that.
ABC canceled Barr's namesake sitcom "Roseanne" in May after she tweeted that Jarrett, who is black and was born in Iran to American parents, looked like the offspring of the "Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes".
ABC has announced that it will produce a "Roseanne" spinoff called "The Conners" that features John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Sara Gilbert.
Barr said she has struggled with mental health issues, adding she had multiple personalities that were integrated a dozen years ago through therapy.
