In her interview with the Times published Tuesday, Barr insisted Trump shares the socially progressive views of her "Roseanne" character, including support same-sex marriage and abortion rights. Barr added that it was her idea for Roseanne to be a Trump supporter.

So both Barr's character and the real-life actress are being described as Trump supporters.

She described the exchange as a "friendly conversation about working in television and ratings".

He was so pleased that the show netted 18.2 million viewers, second this season only to the show immediately following the Super Bowl, he personally rang up Barr to congratulate her on the numbers. The "Roseanne" show ran for nine years before ending in 1997.

"It's just such a wake-up call to the cultural elites to show that actually, people are not all like them".

After being off the air for two decades, Roseanne was thrust into unfamiliar territory.

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 was so happy yesterday that he placed a call to Barr congratulating her on the show's ratings success.

The Roseanne reboot is the talk of the town today but you can't talk about Roseanne without mentioning Trump, as the president and his politics were woven into the dialog of the ABC show.

Trump phoning Roseanne was a mating call to his base: Roseanne delivered its highest ratings in states he handily carried in the election. Oh yeah, he really understands ratings and how they measure things, and that's kind of been an interest of mine too for a long time.

"I'm still the same-you all moved", Barr replied.

During a Q&A session with television critics earlier this year, Barr said, "It was working-class people who elected Trump. 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". "That's what we need to do as a country, is figure out what we don't like, talk to each other and discuss how we're going to get it changed or fixed".
