The residents say people drive by to take pictures of the local gem, but as the reboot made its way closer to the premier, Skupien says more and more people have been driving by.

"Roseanne" premieres 7 p.m. Tuesday on ABC7.

Indeed, the first episode in the show's return, airing Tuesday night, addresses itself directly to the fallout from the election. Well, sort of. Our TV critic David Bianculli has this review.

In a new interview on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, Barr revealed how hunky Clooney wasn't into joining the revival.

"When it premiered, Roseanne broke new ground". As Deadline noted previous year, the network had already ordered additional episodes, which was seen as a "good omen" for the series.

Sara Gilbert and Roseanne Barr in the return of ABC's Roseanne. Rather, U.S. politics are there to establish a divide in the family. Its central character, played by Roseanne Barr, was a matriarch, not a patriarch.

When Barr got the joke, she burst out laughing as the pair walked away. It is about love, family and hookups. They also took out their frustrations by bickering and wisecracking - a lot. Here's a refresher on how the initial series came to an end. And the show had two secret weapons - co-stars who were marvelously talented actors. Season nine of Roseanne is like a homunculus of Roseanne Barr's fears and aspirations. The Conners won the lottery, Jackie was romanced by a prince, and Dan died. "Roseanne" waited two decades. It was a rivalry for the ages until Roseanne inadvertently helped burglars dressed as good Samaritans (one of whom looked like Bob Hope) rob Kathy's house, which ultimately drove the snippy housewife back to her hometown of Chicago. She's played by Emma Kenney and fits in perfectly.

"It's really, really important to watch the revived Roseanne". "I like diversity, and it's so much a part of the working class, where it is not so much part of middle-class stuff".

In the 1991 "Roseanne" episode "A Bitter Pill to Swallow", Becky Conner opens up to her mom about getting more serious with her boyfriend and wanting to go on the pill.

"May the winds fill his sails and carry him to the boy's section of Target", Dan Conner (John Goodman) says early in the pilot. Dan Conner is definitely not dead. "I thought it was gonna be more what's up with the girl's clothes?"

"We have, I think, a beloved place in the hearts of the American viewers", adds Helford, "and we wanted to get out there and do something that we felt would be valuable to maybe healing things and putting everybody's cards on the table". I mean, this might come as a complete shock to you, but we nearly lost our house, the way things are going. "What we're interested in doing is just telling honest stories about a family that's up against it". The show never received a Best Comedy Series nomination, and it took until the fourth season before both Barr and fictional sister Laurie Metcalf received nominations. We thought it would be fun to have him give her crap for killing him off. It makes sense that Roseanne and Dan might be in moderately poor health and constantly annoyed by the cost of medications.

Why did you have Jackie choke and vote for Jill Stein? "Because now things are worse", Jackie retorts. But that's not high praise, and it's not meant to be.

GROSS: David Bianculli is editor of the website TV Worth Watching. That may sound heavy, but we're talking about the Connors here, so there are plenty of laughs. My guest will be Maya Dusenbery, the author of the new book "Doing Harm". However, she also claimed that whatever events happened that she didn't like-she changed. Throw an episode about gun control in there and we're halfway to an Emmy nom.

GROSS: FRESH AIR's executive producer is Danny Miller. Thea Chaloner directed today's show.
