"Of course", Barr told the site during a fan event.

Trying to get to the bottom of her politics, Jimmy Kimmel reminded Barr that she was a "good friend of Hillary Clinton's at one point".

"For some reason I thought I read something years ago that Roseanne said she didn't want to touch the original so I had assumed for all these years there was no way to do it", Gilbert said. It reminds me a lot of like when we first started there was nothing on television like our show and it's still that way and I felt like there was a slot for us to come back.

"You know I'm going to find that tweet in the next 40 seconds..." continued Kimmel.

Her son Alain Knoll told the broadcaster that she had lived all her life in the eastern 11th arrondissement (district) of Paris . One of the two suspects is said to be Mrs Knoll's 28-year-old neighbour and to have known the victim since he was a child.

"Listen. Nevermind her foreign policy", he responded.

"You're expressing your views, as insane as they may be", Kimmel said.

Still, it could be worse than Trump, Barr reminded him.

Goodman, 65, echoed Barr's sentiments explaining that "because things that affect families in middle America, they're going to affect us and we want to be not demonstrating but just showing how it affects a family who is living paycheck to paycheck, how they handle these things, and how much they have to forget just to get through the day", adding that "you can't" shy away from big topics. You all moved. You all went so fucking far out you lost everyone.

"You want Pence? You want Pence for the freakin' president?" When Kimmel replied that he didn't, Barr responded: "Well, then zip that fucking lip" before collapsing on the couch in laughter.

The cast of "Rosanne" is back 20 years after the iconic characters won our hearts as the blue-collar Conner family from Landford, Illinois. The original series ran on ABC for nine seasons.
