When will Roseanne be added to the Ratings Chart comparison pull-down.

I'm also done with politics being a part of everything....but I'm a little baffled as to why the extreme right are praising the show and claiming it as theirs. I didn't see the premiere as a staunchly conservative show at all. What I saw was a family that had different views that came together regardless of their differences and did what they could to make it work. I really didn't see it favor one or the other. I do have a few conservative family members who are no longer going to watch because of the acceptance of a gender fluid character, so there's that. I don't know. Maybe it's because I really don't fully align with either side that I saw it differently. I wasn't looking for validation for my beliefs. I was just watching a sitcom. I'm interested to see where it goes from here and also hope that the politics doesn't become the heart of the show.

Conservatives are happy.
But I thought Hollywood should stay out of politics. Hypocrites.

The show was crap back in the day and now it’s just crap that’s ripened. Of course Roseanne supports Trump....idiots deserve each other.

It was ok. I'm really over politics infiltrating every single aspect of our lives so I hope it won't keep carrying on into future episodes. The only good thing about the political parts was it at least showed both sides and how ridiculous they both look and sound. Other than that, it was a decent premiere and I admit I mostly watched out of curiosity. If the politics continues though, I probably won't tune in anymore. I get enough of that in real life....

The only reason I can figure out why Roseanne voted for Trump was because as a multi-millionaire, she realized that he would tilt the playing field further in her favor. Anyone who voted for him but makes less than $2 million a year was hoodwinked.
So many examples, but the "tax plan" is probably the best. They made sure there were tiny benefits for the middle class for a few years, but look at the things that get phased in over time. In less than 7 years, the poor and middle class will be paying more in taxes, fees and lost services. All those services are pushed to the state and local governments. And guess what? You won't even be able to deduct that extra cost from your federal taxes (if they still exist by then at all).
Over 90% of the benefits from the tax plan are going to less than 5% of the people. And they're the ones who need it the least.

Just watched Roseanne. I was pleasantly surprised. I am so tired of all the political Trump bashing in most sitcoms along with all the same tired unhumorous jokes. Here, even though they included politics it was refreshing to hear both sides represented in one show and it was also funny. I hope they continue to do this and not fall into the same tired old patterns that other shows have fallen into. I had given up watching most sitcoms with the exception of shows that are entirely apolitical like the Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon (funny and not political).

Just watched it. It was perfect. Nice to see both sides of the conversation for once. I almost never give a show a 5 here, but a 5 here was an easy decision.
