Roseanne Barr Reveals Why a 'Roseanne' Revival Didn't Happen Sooner

As ABC gets ready to premiere nine-episode revival on Tuesday night the controversial funny lady says she would welcome an invitation to the White House

"Roseanne" fans can rejoice, as the show's highly-anticipated reboot is officially set to premiere on ABC tonight, bringing with it some new questions and adventures for the beloved all-American Conner family.

Executive producer/actress Roseanne Barr, actors John Goodman, Lecy Goranson and Sarah Chalke of the television show Roseanne speak onstage during the ABC Television/Disney portion of the 2018 Winter Television Critics Association Press Tour at The Langham Huntington, Pasadena on January 8, 2018 in Pasadena, California. Darlene (Sara Gilbert) has children now and, yes, her daughter is such a clone you'll swear 20 years haven't passed.

Stern then talked about the upcoming reboot for "Roseanne" and asked how political the show is going to get. The show never received a Best Comedy Series nomination, and it took until the fourth season before both Barr and fictional sister Laurie Metcalf received nominations.

"I'm still the same, you all moved", she said. I keep my yap shut. "Our energy together was very girly and it was just kind of amusing to see the traits that we have in common and our differences and all that stuff".

"I doubt that will happen", said actress/producer, Sara Gilbert, while the show's co-producer/writer, Whitney Cummings, said she'd flat-out "send him to voicemail".

And she's back with quite a resume in hand. She said: 'We don't want [Mike] Pence! He's talking about a movie, but the statement works for "Roseanne", too.

And you'll see Michael Fishman as D.J. Conner. Barr said she thought it was important to show how the Conner family deals with the same issues many American families are facing.
