‘Roseanne’ is off to one heck of a start.
The revival of the incredibly popular 90’s sitcom depicts its main star, Roseanne Barr, as an unapologetic Trump supporter despite the sour spot it is for the rest of the family.
And the hit TV show’s latest announcement is not good news for the Hollywood elites.
Roseanne’s premiere opened to an unprecedented 18.2 million viewers.
Think about it—what does that actually say about Hollywood vs. the rest of America?
Could this mean that an industry that prides itself on being the de facto moral authority actually has no clue?
The answer to that question appears to be yes.
How else could one explain the ‘Roseanne’ phenomenon, which has already received the green light for a second season?
But what’s really bad news for Hollywood is that this proves there is a silent majority in America that is fed up with the status quo of identity politics and virtue-signaling dominating the entertainment industry.
Consequence of Sound reports:
“Once it was announced earlier this week that the return of ABC’s Roseanne drew an astounding 18.2 million viewers earlier this week, it was only a matter of time until the inevitable came about.
And sure enough, the network has already renewed the hit revival for a second (technically 11th) season, just as the first season of the revival gets going.
For the first time since its original run wrapped up in 1997, the show has clearly hit a nerve with America, and there’s already been no shortage of ink spilled regarding why that may be, and for that matter, whether it’s a good thing.
Roseanne Barr’s vocal support of President Donald Trump has been an equal point of contention, particularly given that it’s already found its way into the show bearing her name. (And into real life as well; the President-Elect took some time out of his busy schedule to publicly congratulate the show, and by proxy as usual, himself.)
It’s hard to deny the series’ sustained appeal, regardless of your stances on Barr or her politics; 18.2 million, simply put, is a figure that very, very few broadcast shows are capable of drawing in the streaming era.
That said, whether Roseanne is able to maintain this momentum remains to be seen; the show will reportedly address issues of healthcare, drug addiction, and other American working-class struggles throughout the rest of its initial return run.
And that’s to say nothing of Barr, who’s already making waves for her public comments after just a few months back in the national spotlight.
While it continues to be a cultural lightning rod, Roseanne will air every week, Tuesdays at 7pm.”

The wild success of ‘Roseanne’ could spark a conservative artistic revolution and Hollywood would have no choice but to comply with the people’s consensus.
