Trump seized on its ratings during a speech Thursday in Richfield, Ohio, that was to be about infrastructure but hopscotched through other topics.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the New York Times that the President wanted to personally reach out to Barr. From the online buzz it certainly felt like they were going to do well in the ratings, but racking up 18 million viewers is beyond just "good" in the ratings game these days.

In the first episode of the new series, Barr's character reveals she is a Trump supporter, a fact that causes strife with members of her family. The very first episode of the show debuted in 1988.

Barr deleted her Twitter account earlier this year after a series of liberal-bashing tweets defending her Trump vote. "I thought that this was an important thing to say at this time", she said.

The same type of gripe emerged on social media with Twitter users.

"He said 'Donald, I called just to say hello and to tell you did you see Roseanne's ratings?' I said, 'Mark, How big were they?'" Trump recounted. "Matt Drudge tweeted: "'ROSEANNE' RATINGS BLOWOUT". It was the best comedy premiere in three years.

After generating massive ratings and viewership for its premiere episode, there's a buzz about a succeeding #season for the revival.

Trump congratulated Barr and thanked her for her support.

Donald Trump, Jr. gave Roseanne and her costars kudos as well. His tweet attracted Trump critics as well.

"I'm still the same-you all moved", Barr replied.

The show was widely praised for fairly portraying a family with differing political views.

Laurie Metcalf, who plays Roseanne's sister Jackie, clashes with her on political issues.

After Barr's appearance, Williams came back to address the widespread rumors that her own husband has been carrying out a flagrantly public affair with a much younger woman.

In an interview with The New York Times, Barr said that she chose to turn her character, Roseanne Conner, into a Trump supporter because she felt it was an "accurate portrayal" of the political preferences of many working-class Americans. Get a huge boost to your career from your support of the president and then turn around and launch a bid to unseat him? "We've been in wars for a long, long time, which everybody seems to forget - but working class people don't forget it because their kids are in it", she said.
