Barr received a congratulatory call from Trump on Wednesday for the ratings success of the premiere of "Roseanne", the revival of her ABC sitcom, in which she plays a Trump supporter.

The "Roseanne" revival scored record-high ratings in its debut on March 27.

Roseanne Barr has a history of supporting President Donald Trump, as well as promoting popular online right-wing conspiracy theories. Two decades later, it returned to historic ratings with over 18 million viewers tuned in to watch. The original "Roseanne" aired for 10 seasons and was once the No. 1 show on television.

"He doesn't oppose same-sex marriage", Barr said, then, in response to the interview's assertion that Trump "has not come out in favor of it", she added: "He does". We just kinda had a private conversation, but we talked about a lot of things. I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years.

Perhaps the biggest point of conversation about Roseanne's success is how it's captivated the interest of President Donald Trump, who called the show's star, Roseanne Barr - a pro-Trumper and longtime friend of the president - to congratulate her.

While "Q" has never given any evidence to show that they really work in the government, their posts on 4Chan have garnered a large following among conspiracy theorists, as they allege that the Trump administration is planning mass arrests of Democratic leaders for their roles in a devil-worshiping child-sex-trafficking ring.

A source at ABC told CNN's Brian Stelter Thursday that the "Roseanne" reboot is set for "imminent" renewal.
