Barr also explained the reason for the show's new, politically-charged content, which she said gives viewers a different, more "accurate" look at what's happening in American families than they could find elsewhere.

If "Roseanne" continues to draw as it did in its premiere, it could become a top-rated show of the 2017-18 TV season.

Star Roseanne Barr even thanked her fans on Twitter for making the debut a huge success.

Barr, an outspoken Trump supporter, returned to TV to play Roseanne Connor, now also a vocal Trump supporter. "And so I wanted to bring it (the series) right down the middle, and we did", said Barr.

Trump phoning Roseanne was a mating call to his base: Roseanne delivered its highest ratings in states he handily carried in the election.

On "Good Morning America" Thursday morning, Barr referenced her conversations with Trump: "We just kind of had a private conversation but we talked about a lot of things and he's just happy for me".

The Trump-centric first episode of Roseanne's return averaged a stellar 4.9 rating in the advertiser-friendly 18 to 49 demographic and 17.7 million live viewers overall.

Not only is it a rare depiction of working-class life on USA television, but also of Trump supporters, who have been largely ignored by Hollywood.

In that same conversation with GMA, Barr discussed her decision to make Roseanne Conner a Trump voter.

These numbers surpassed that of the show's 1997 series finale and more than doubled ABC's reported expectations. A revival of the show launched this week to record ratings.

"And I think that's something you don't see on television most of the time".

The show was widely praised for fairly portraying a family with differing political views.

Barr previously said she would love to screen Roseanne at the White House privately with Trump. The phone call comes after "Roseanne" received at least 18.2 million viewers on the night of the show's return, after almost 20 years off the air.
