Comedian and actress, Roseanne Barr will once again team-up with John Goodman in an eight-episode reunion of Roseanne. The show is expected to address the trials and tribulations of ordinary Americans, and their support of President Trump.
Interestingly, the show will air on ABC. Network President, Channing Dungey, drew sharp criticism after the abrupt cancellation of Tim Allen’s popular conservative comedy, Last Man Standing. A move Dungey asserted was for “business and scheduling” reasons. However, it seems Dungey has felt the wrath of conservative fans.
In a statement, Dungey noted that Roseanne will bring back a “point-of-view that has been missing on air.” “I don’t know whether Roseanne (Barr) will speak about Trump by name. But she’s going to speak very honestly,” Dungey told the Banff World Media Festival. “Now we will have three generations-Roseanne, her kids and her kids have kids who are teenagers.
Dungey also noted that the Roseanne reboot is the “right TV show for the Trump era. Barr has been a very vocal supporter of President Trump and has referred to the repeated attacks on him as an “attack on American voters” who rejected…

“Every single attack on @POTUS is really a disguised attack on American voters who rejected Obama-Clinton-Bush’s bleeding of R treasury,” Barr tweeted back in March. More recently, Barr slammed Trump-hating Rosie O’Donnell, after she mocked Barron Trump’s reaction to seeing the Kathy Griffin photo depicting his father’s severed head.
Barr, who is Jewish, has also made her feelings about Hillary Clinton very clear. “Hillary Clinton is surrounded by Jew haters who make fun of the Holocaust & Jewish suffering yet her mkultra supporters call Trump a bigot!” she said. Barr also noted that a Clinton presidency would’ve spelled “death for Israel.”
The reboot will begin airing mid-season and the actress has promised fans that she will represent everyone with “complete honesty.” Barr also posited that it is important to her to focus on things that “unite us rather than divide us.”
We will certainly be tuning in, if for no other reason than to see the liberal reaction, will you?
