Many people were mildly surprised when the new Roseanne reboot positioned Roseanne as an explicit Trump supporter—but not Amber Ruffin!!
The Roseanne reboot had incredible ratings right out the gate, buoyed by nostalgia and curiosity about how the show would transpose the real Roseanne Barr’s Trump support onto her fictional character. The line between them has always been thin, but for former fans, it’s a bit baffling that Roseanne Conner is so…
Welcome to Barf Bag, a daily politics roundup to help you sort through the chaotic Trumpian news cycle.
For about 20 minutes of airtime, the first episode of the Roseanne reboot played catch-up. Arguing its relevance, it crammed in references to cultural touchstones that occurred in the 21 or so years the show was off the air. There were jokes about Obamacare, Harry Potter and 50 Shades of Grey, taking a knee, female…

A Roseanne revival was confirmed in mid-May, causing many to ask, “Who is playing Becky?” and, “Will the show reflect Roseanne Barr’s political beliefs?”
ABC has confirmed that the rumored Roseanne reboot has been greenlit for an eight-episode run to begin next year. Deadline reports that John Goodman has been cast to return, which maybe means that Dan didn’t die after all, as was revealed on the series finale. Or maybe Dan is dead and he’s just...come back, as they…

The red carpet for Roseanne's Comedy Central Roast wasn't red at all, but the textured, cheap, crappy brown carpet popularized in the late '70s/early '80s. With a front door entrance, hanging coats and twood paneling and wallpaper, the entire step-and-repeat was styled after the infamous living room from Roseanne.…
