Is Roseanne Barr going to host Sean Hannity’s show?

After her pro-Trump show Roseanne delivered more than 18.2 million viewers on Tuesday night and she got a personal phone call from President Donald Trump, Hollywood is realizing the thirst for a conservative-based show.

Basking in her massive ratings and poking fun at liberals on Twitter, Barr asked her followers if she should go on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show.

Having been in the trenches for years fighting bias against conservatives, Hannity immediately responded: “Roseanne, would you like to host my show one night? DONE!! Just say yes!”

Roseanne replied, “dm me!” meaning send her a private message. It appears Hannity is in the works to let Roseanne host his show on Fox News one night, which many fans would love to see.

Check out the exchange below:

Aside from possibly hosting Hannity’s show, her show greatly exceeded liberal expectations and delivered a ratings grand-slam.

The revival of the pro-Trump show Roseanne delivered the highest-rated comedy telecast on any network in the last four years, according to Entertainment Weekly.

EW reported Tuesday’s show was the highest-rated entertainment telecast in six years among young adults.

The original Roseanne sit-com aired between 1988 until 1997, but the reboot takes on a much more conservative tone.

Actor Roseanne Barr plays a conservative character who supports Trump and is finding ways to cope with family members who are Democrats.

The show centers on the Conners, a blue-collar, working-class family in the Midwest. The family is also wading through tricky political issues, such as race, parenthood, and other political issues.

The premiere also featured several slights at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In the show, Roseanne’s sister is a purported Clinton supporter who couldn’t even bring herself to vote for the former secretary of state, so she voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

But more importantly, there hasn’t been a Hollywood show that respectfully depicts Republican woman in decades, which explains why Roseanne was such a big hit with viewers.

There’s also a strong overlap between Roseanne’s audience and Hannity’s, so her hosting his Fox News program could be a massive hit.

Time will tell what happens next, but it appears Roseanne may be coming to another screen near you.
