Does Roseanne signal a backlash against the Never-Trumps?
During the early to mid 1990s, when the internet was still seen as a new fangled gizmo that would never catch on, and mobile phones were the size of a phone book, there was one show which ruled the TV landscape.
Roseanne was - up until its woeful last season - blue-collar comedy at its best, a sort of real-life Simpsons about a working-class family who bickered, loved, fought, forgave and then bickered some more.
It was a traditional sitcom which appealed to those in the heartland - and not just the American heartland. In fact, the show's massive global popularity was precisely because it portrayed something profoundly relatable to any working-class family who spent their time worrying about bills and trying to stretch their latest pay cheque as far as it could go.
