Roseanne Barr: 'I Think Trump's Stealing My Act'

Roseanne Barr: 'I Think Trump's Stealing My Act'

News at the PaleyLive panel for Roseanne in New York City.

Actress Roseanne Barr attends the Disney ABC Television TCA Winter Press Tour on January 8, 2018, in Pasadena, California.

Much like his on-screen persona, John Goodman, who reprises his role as Dan Conner, wanted to stay out of the fray. "I hope it will get people talking to each other".

"All politics is local, and ultimately it's all meant to crush the family", Goodman said. "People think it's in the beginning of the show, but the truth is it's in the garage scene".

"[Clooney] goes, 'Let's go out, and I'll throw it ... and you hit it with a bat and then we'll send the picture to the president of the network", Barr exaplained. "It was just all still alive and we just pushed the button and it happened", Barr said. It's the same idea that I had a long time ago.




"Yeah, like everybody's family I know is divided", Barr responded.

For example, Barr recalled how, at the time, actress Valerie Harper got into a skirmish with network executives and was sacked from the show that bore her name - "Valerie" - only to be replaced by actress Sandy Duncan.

"Roseanne" airs Tuesday at 8 p.m.

More than two decades since its season 9 finale, the Conner family is set to make their comeback with the premiere of ABC's Roseanne revival Tuesday night.

"Splitting Up Together", 9:30 p.m. (KOMO): Premiere of new sitcom produced by Ellen DeGeneres; exes Lena and Martin take turns living in the garage apartment and spending alternate weeks running the house and taking care of their three kids. For the reboot, Roseanne will be at odds with her sister Jackie, played by Laurie Metcalf, over President Donald Trump.
