President Trump called Roseanne Barr after successful series premiere

Pres. Trump calls Roseanne Barr cheers ratings after show's debut

His son, Donald Trump Jr, was among those congratulating Barr on the success of the premiere, which poked fun at both the left and the right.

"It was pretty exciting, I'll tell you that much", Barr said Thursday on "Good Morning America" about the presidential call.

"Look at Roseanne - look at her ratings", Trump told the crowd, which had gathered to hear Trump deliver what was billed as an infrastructure speech but sounded instead closer to a political rally.

NBC's "Will & Grace", for example, returned this season with its original 1998-2006 cast to a debut audience of 10.1 million viewers and was quickly renewed for a second and then a third season.

In December, Barr tweeted, "4 those who wonder-back in the day when I was called a "liberal" by journalists, I used to answer-'I'm not a Liberal, I'm a radical' & I still am-I voted Trump 2 shake up the status quo & the staid establishment". "They said, 'Hold for the President of the United States, ' and that was about the most exciting thing ever, and it was very sweet of him to congratulate us".

"We just kind of had a private conversation", she said.

Barr is an outspoken Trump supporter both in real life and on the show, which viewers have praised for tapping into the often overlooked working class issues that many Americans face and that the president has vowed to address.

Conservatives cheered the show's ratings. "You know, it's my childhood...it's just awesome to watch". "He's just happy for me. So, it was just a friendly conversation about work, and you know, television and ratings". She said, "I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years".

"Roseanne" star John Goodman hates watching re-runs of his hit sitcom because he can see all the episodes where he was drunk. It portrays the fictional blue-collar Conner family, who live in IL.

In the updated "Roseanne", Barr's support for Trump is shared by her character.
