For anyone who’s not paying attention…it’s called the Trump effect.
Will the communist entertainment industry ever come to terms with the fact that almost 63 million Americans voted for Donald Trump? Look at the disappearing audiences at movie theaters with films featuring rabidly anti-Trump actors, and at the Trump-bashing Hollywood Awards shows. There’s no denying it, President Trump supporters are some of the most passionate and loyal Americans you will find anywhere. When word got out about the cancellation of the hit “Last Man Standing” show, featuring the Trump supporting actor, Tim Allen, supporters of the show and of Donald Trump went nuts on social media, demanding ABC put the top-rated show back on the air. Apparently, after receiving months of backlash over their controversial decision to cancel Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing”, ABC made the very smart decision to air the reboot of the Roseanne Show, featuring the Trump supporting Roseanne Barr, in the leading role.
Their decision paid off...
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.
President Trump was so moved by the support by Roseanne Barr for the “forgotten man” and for Trump, that he called her to congratulate her on her success.

Two days ago, Fox News published an article touting the wild success of ABC’s Roseanne Show reboot, and how her off-the-chart ratings were putting pressure on “networks to revive conservative show ‘Last Man Standing'”.
Following the release of the Roseanne Show’s ratings, Fox News reported – The highly anticipated reboot of “Roseanne” premiered on Tuesday night to stellar ratings and, since the show focuses on a typical middle-class family with conservative-leaning views, some TV watchers are wondering if the successful reception will pave the way for the return of another show that highlights a conservative lead character: Tim Allen’s “Last Man Standing.”
“Last Man Standing” was memorably scraped from the TV schedule by ABC despite high ratings, with the network claiming there was no room in the schedule for the comedy. Allen, like his character on the show, is a Republican, and many speculated the cancellation had something to do with the views expressed on-screen.
Following the success of the “Roseanne” reboot debut, viewers took to Twitter to ask ABC ‒ or any network ‒ to revive “Last Man Standing.”

Was the Fox News article greasing the skids for a major announcement by Fox, about the reboot of “Last Man Standing”?
According to TMZ, the reboot bug has bitten FOX hard, and the biggest beneficiary is Tim Allen‘s recently-canceled show, “Last Man Standing.”
TMZ‘s FOX sources tell us Allen’s show — which was controversially canceled last year — is now under serious consideration for a reboot. There were rumors the show was canceled because of Allen’s personal conservative affiliations — he compared being a conservative in Hollywood to 1930’s Nazi Germany, as well as the conservative character he portrayed on the show.
The irony … we’re told the success of “Roseanne” has intrigued FOX because there appears to be a big Trump-supporting audience out there. FOX produced the show when it aired on ABC, and we’re told the talk now is to possibly reboot and put it on FOX.
