Donald Trump has always cared about television ratings, and this week he definitely noticed when Roseanne Barr's show pulled in huge numbers.
Trump personally called Barr to offer his congratulations after her eponymous family sitcom pulled in a whopping 18.2 million viewers on Tuesday night.
The president spoke to the comedian about the premiere's 'huge' ratings, and thanked Barr for her continued public support, according to the New York Times.
He also reportedly thanked Barr, 65, for making her character in the show a passionate Trump supporter.

The call was confirmed by White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
It is hardly a surprise that Roseanne, which follows blue-collar family the Connors and stars the comedian as a Trump fan, hit big with Middle America.
