For all the talk of ABC’s Roseanne pandering to Donald Trump, you may have noticed the President’s name was never actually spoken. That’s by design, and star Sara Gilbert surprisingly confirms the new revival season won’t ever use the name at all.
The ratings bonanza around ABC’s Roseanne revival caught everyone by surprise, but what happened next should not. Documented ratings-hound and sitting U.S. President Donald Trump naturally reached out to bask in the success and show his own support for the revival.
We knew the Trump presidency would make one hell of an event series someday; maybe not one year in, and three weeks after its tell-all book. And yet, the all-consuming Fire and Fury novel will indeed spark its own TV adaptation, landing a seven-figure deal for author Michael Wolff.
