"Roseanne" Revival: Pro-Trump TV?

Roseanne is coming back to television and may be the first and only pro-Trump show on television.

This comes not long after ABC announced the cancellation of another sitcom, Last Man Standing, which many critics say was because of the show's star Tim Allen and his conservative views.

Last Man Standing had very high ratings, and centered around a character who was a proud conservative presented as a normal person and not as a villainous moron.

With Roseanne's revival, many say all the network did was trade one pro-Trump show for another as Roseanne Barr is also an outspoken supporter of the president.

Barr has been quoted in the past as saying how lucky America would be to have him as president and praised him for paying for his own campaign. 

"That's the only way he could've gotten that nomination. Because nobody wants a president who isn't from Yale and Harvard and in the club. 'Cause it's all about distribution. When you're in the club, you've got people that you sell to. That's how money changes hands; that's how business works. If you've got friends there, they scratch your back and blah, blah."

During her show's original run from 1988 to 1997, it was called politically incorrect at times but took a more realistic and identifiable look at the average middle-class American family. 

ABC president Channing Dungey said that in the reboot, Barr's views aren't something that will necessarily be ignored.

"I don't know whether Roseanne [Barr] will speak about Trump by name. But she's going to speak very honestly."
