These economic problems remain the same since ‘Roseanne’ premiered 30 years ago

Roseanne Barr’s return to the top of the ratings was a familiar feeling for the star. But it was also shockingly brief. America in 2018, it turns out, is a very different place to America in 1988. In some ways, at least. In other ways, not much has changed for many blue-collar families, many of whom have been described as President Trump as the “forgotten people.”

The 10th season of “Roseanne” will be its last following Barr’s racist comment on Twitter TWTR, +5.62% directed at Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to Barack Obama. The show-ending controversy in some ways highlights how much has changed — about America and Barr herself alike — since the sitcom first hit the airwaves.
