When Democrats discovered Roseanne Barr would be embracing President Donald Trump on the new Roseanne Show reboot, they begged their fellow leftists to boycott the show. Unfortunately for the left, the Trump effect is not just an imaginary thing, but a force to be reckoned with, especially when it comes to Hollywood trying to take down conservatives. Not only did their boycott fail, but it apparently inspired millions to watch the Roseanne Show reboot debut…
Roseanne’s sister Jackie wore her “Nasty Woman” t-shirt and the pink “pussy hat” that’s become the trademark of angry, anti-Trump feminazis, but true to the old Roseanne character we all remember, she completely ignored her radical sister and thanked God for “Making America Great Again” while her sister was seated across from her during their pre-dinner family prayers. Roseanne’s ditzy sister, Jackie, who perfectly portrayed an uninformed and emotional liberal, received a verbal smackdown more than once by Roseanne, who mocked her sister Jackie for being a “good-hearted person, who can’t do simple math”.
The Washington Post is reporting- More than two decades after its original finale, a massive audience welcomed “Roseanne” back to ABC on Tuesday night. The network reported that the two-episode premiere attracted a whopping 18.2 million viewers, ABC’s best results for an hour-long telecast since fall 2006.
With a 5.1 rating among adults ages 18 to 49, it was also the highest-rated sitcom episode that broadcast television has seen since the CBS ratings giant “The Big Bang Theory” scored a 5.5 with its eighth-season opener in September 2014. The “Roseanne” premiere also topped the 16.6 million viewers recorded for the show’s original finale. CNN reported that the only scripted series to have a larger audience this season is “This Is Us,” which drew 26.9 million viewers for its post-Super Bowl episode.
Roseanne Barr thanked fans via Twitter for the incredible rating: “You are all wonderful-here is to making America laugh & talk again! LOVE U”
If that sounds a little like the president’s “Make America Great Again” slogan, that could be on purpose. Much of the chatter leading up to the “Roseanne” premiere surrounded the lead actress’s politics; Barr is a known supporter of President Trump, as is her character in the reboot. Both critics and viewers praised the show for honestly portraying a working-class family during its original run, and Barr said during the Television Critics Association’s press tour that she believes “it was working-class people who elected Trump.” (This isn’t necessarily true.)
The reboot directly addresses the ideological divide that many American families face. Roseanne (Barr) and her liberal sister, Jackie (Laurie Metcalf), have not spoken to each other since election night. The former’s daughter Darlene (Sara Gilbert) attempts to help her mother and aunt, who sports a pink knitted hat and a “Nasty Woman” T-shirt, make amends by planning a family dinner.
Roseanne proceeds to tell her sister that Trump “talked about jobs, Jackie, he said to shake things up. I know this may come as a shock to you, but we almost lost our house because of the way things are going.”
Jackie retorts: “Have you looked at the news? Because now things are worse,” to which Roseanne replies, “Not on the real news.”
Conservatives on Twitter are praising Roseanne Barr and her bravery for standing up to liberals, and staying true to her conservative values on her Roseanne reboot.
Conservative actor, James Woods, had this to say about the Roseanne reboot: he great F. Scott Fitzgerald once famously opined that there are no second acts in American lives. Wrong!
