I'm getting rid of the ones where you guys were fat.>> Those are the only ones where we look happy!>> Tuesday night marks the much-hyped return of Roseanne, the seminal sitcom about a working class family that topped the ratings in the late 1980s. The updated reboot just the latest in the ongoing trend of 80s throwbacks.
Older and arguably wiser Roseanne Conner is no longer a factory worker. She's an Uber driver, having failed to save for her retirement.>> Could I have some money?>> She's also a Trump supporter, just like Roseanne Barr who says the show's appeal transcends politics.>> I think because it's just a regular family trying to stay together and stay okay, and I think that's how it is for a lot of people.
>> And as for the evolution of Dan, her devoted husband?>> Dan drinks more.>>
The original kids are back, too, including Sara Gilbert, now also a real life co-host on The Talk, and Oscar-nominated Lady Bird costar Laurie Metcalf, reinhabiting her Emmy-winning role as Roseanne's sister.
>> Thanks, Jackie.>> Please call me Aunt Jackie. It's the only title that I have.>> Roseanne airs on its original network, ABC.
