A Crazy Amount of People Watched the Roseanne Premiere

After almost 20 years off the air, "Roseanne" came back better and stronger than ever.

Roseanne Barr has frequently defended President Trump leading up to the show's relaunch and most recently did so on Jimmy Kimmel's show.

Lead-in support from "Roseanne" greatly helped "black-ish" (which drew season highs of 2.6 in the demo and 8.71 million in viewers) and the premiere of "Splitting Up Together" (2.2, 7.20 million).

The ABC sitcom averaged 18.1 million viewers and won the night ratings-wise in both adults 18-49 and in total viewers during its two-episode premiere, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She wrote, "I am so greatful (sic) to the fans of the Roseanne show for giving it a good Premiere rating".

Aside from that, many were happy Barr is still able to deliver the laughs she did almost three decades ago. "I thought I'd be a huge success by now".

SoOoOoO, pretty much EVERYONE tuned into the Roseanne reboot. Son DJ is home from Syria, but with a wife still serving in the military overseas.

The original "Roseanne" aired from 1988 to 1997.

Depictions of working-class life are rare on USA television, and Hollywood has largely ignored the half of the country that voted for Donald Trump. She even admits to voting for Jill Stein and blames herself for being part of the reason Trump got elected. Jackie and Roseanne stopped speaking after getting into a massive fight after the 2016 election, but after throwing political jabs at one another throughout the premiere, they've finally made up - but we can only hope that the pink pussy hat and "Nasty Woman" T-shirt aren't getting retired.
