Everyone had been on edge about the Roseanne revival. Would it be as good as the original? Would the cast still have that spark? Would it even translate in the year 2018?

Well, the first episode was watched by over 18 million people. That's a record breaking number! Roseanne's premiere became the highest-rated sitcom episode in over three years.

Fans of the show had been skeptical of the revival, but I guess they decided to give it a chance because everyone seemed to be watching the first episode. There was a little bit of concern that the second episode would see significant drop off, but it still managed to keep over 15 million viewers watching!

These numbers have managed to secure it a second season! Not only will there be a season 2 of the revival, but it will have more episodes than the first.

The first season has 9 episodes, but the renewal signed them on for another 13 episodes. It's good that they've gone ahead and renewed it, because as the ratings continue to file in from DVR watches, it turns out that more than 25 million people watched the premiere.

There was a lot of concern that the show would become too political, especially because of Roseanne Barr's vocal support of Donald Trump, but it seems like they have decided to keep it Trump-free.

Star of the show, Sara Gilbert, revealed that his name won't be mentioned in the show at all. "The Conners aren't Trump supporters. Roseanne's character is a Trump supporter — she's the only one — and we never say his name, actually, in the show," she said.

The showrunner has revealed what to expect from the rest of the season and what's in store for season 2...

Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival.

Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

13 Secrets From The Set Of 'Married With Children' That'll Make You Believe In Love And Marriage

Married...With Children is one of those shows that felt different from all the rest. Every other sitcom was trying to put forward this false homage to the happy family, but honestly, that's not the way the real world was. There is always a little bit of conflict in the real world. We don't all get along all the time and yes, sometimes we can be a little inappropriate. The only family that seemed to give us a more accurate representation of family life was the Bundys. Al Bundy was a little bit rough around the edges, and Peggy was
