'Roseanne' renewed for second season already. Man.

'Roseanne' renewed for second season already. Man.

Following the massive ratings for the premiere of the Roseanne revival on ABC, the network has renewed the series for next season, which will be the classic sitcom's 11th overall. "We can't wait to see what the "Roseanne" team has in store for next year", said Channing Dungey, president of ABC Entertainment. The hour-long premiere had 18.1 million viewers and has risen to 21.9 million who have watched it after the premiere date thanks to streaming and downloading platforms. And with just one day of DVR playback factored it, those numbers already swell to 21.9 mil/6.2.

"Roseanne" drew 18.2 million viewers on Tuesday, averaging an 11.9 household rating and 20 percent audience share in the 56 Nielsen Media markets with meters. It's the show's symbolism in the Trump era that has launched a thousand thinkpieces and tweetstorms, with Roxane Gay pointing out in the New York Times that the show promotes the myth that the working class voted for Trump. That decision reflects the politics of star Roseanne Barr, who frequently tweets out pro-Trump messages on Twitter. The ABC source said there's no downside to having Trump talking about the series.

Unsurprisingly, ABC has opted to renew the Roseanne reboot for another season (the show's 11th, in total).

Trump seized on its ratings during a speech Thursday in Richfield, Ohio, that was to be about infrastructure but hopscotched through other topics. "They haven't figured it out, the fake news hasn't quite figured it out yet".

If the success of "Roseanne" is all about appealing to Trump supporters, what's to make of the "Will & Grace" success?

She said she viewed Momberg's actions as intentional as the police officer was merely doing his job when she verbally abused him. Momberg stood unmoved in the dock and repeatedly wiped her tears when Magistrate Pravina Rugoonandan read her judgment.

Barr made waves on Twitter after tweeting that President Trump had "freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over the world".

"[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.

"Roseanne" originally aired from 1988 to 1997 and featured a blue-collar Midwestern family struggling to get by. "It's really about what happens to a family when there's a political divide, which is I think something that the entire country can related to, and something that we need to talk about".

'We talked about a lot of things.
