Trump calls Roseanne Barr after debut of show

'He said "Donald, I called just to say hello, and to tell you, did you see Roseanne's ratings?'"

"They said, "Hold please for the President of the United States of America" and that was about the most exciting thing ever".

As millions watched the premiere of "Roseanne" Tuesday night, there was a special group watching inside the fictional home used in the show.

I am so greatful to the fans of the Roseanne show for giving it a good Premiere rating.

Barr, a vocal Trump supporter with a history of promoting right-wing conspiracy theories, seemed to be referencing a far-right conspiracy theory that Hogg raised a Nazi salute at a March for Our Lives rally on Saturday.

President Trump wasn't the only person in his family to congratulate Barr. I've known him for many years, and he's done a lot of nice things for me. "He's just happy for me. It was just a friendly conversation about work and television and ratings".

The revival had a coat-tail effect for the ABC shows that followed, significantly boosting viewership for "black-ish" and helping to launch the new Jenna Fischer-Oliver Hudson comedy "Splitting Up Together". The show featured a conservative central character and was canceled by ABC a year ago.

Hoping to inspire civil conversation instead of "mudslinging", Barr has said that she would like to bring the reboot for additional seasons. In interviews promoting the revival, she has said she has "no regrets" about her vote. "I thought that this was an important thing to say at this time".

"But that's what we need to do as a country: Figure out what we don't like, talk to each other and discuss how we're going to get it changed or fixed", she continued. "I really do because I think we need to be more civilized than that".

Another promising sign for "Roseanne" was the estimated audience growth from the first half-hour (18 million) to the second (18.9 million), a sign that viewers liked what they saw.
