Whitney Cummings Teases 'Roseanne' Revival Will Be 'Nostalgic' But Also 'Fun' and 'Fresh' (Exclusive)
Featuring all of the other cast favorites -- including John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf and Lecy Goranson -- the show will see the family tackle aging, opioid addiction, healthcare and politics.
Barr told Stern she isn’t concerned about attaining the same kind of ratings the original series did.
"No. I just think it's impossible to do that,” she explained. “ We used to get 40 million viewers a week, now you get 3 million. I'm just hoping to get ...6 [million]? There were only 4 networks or something back then, so now there's like 900. There's a lot of competition."
"[We're] just going to show a realistic depiction of this family and, you know, they have so much in common with other American families," she said. "Everybody's mad at everybody so we'll find a way through and hopefully other people will too."
Roseannepremieres Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC. See more on the reboot below.
