"I think that they're going to stay on the path that they were on toward the end of last season, which is away from politics and toward family".
"In a very amusing way, I think it allowed us, between the different, political views of Roseanne and Jackie, to address some issues that we think have been conversations at other family dining tables across the country".
After posting absolutely fantastic ratings numbers in its premiere and throughout its comeback season, eliciting a call of congratulations from President Donald Trump and potentially paving the way for Tim Allen's Last Man Standing to return, ABC's Roseanne revival may switch gears in season two.
ABC had a major new hit in the fall with "The Good Doctor" and a blockbuster one in the spring with the "Roseanne" revival.
Of course, ABC wasn't the only Big 4 network Kimmel had designs on decimating today.

Last year, the show centered around the Tampa Bay Buccaneers , including former OU defensive lineman Gerald McCoy . The report states that the official announcement will be made Thursday afternoon.
On Tuesday, when TV network ABC held a conference call to announce its autumn 2018 schedule and pitch new shows in the works, they really just wanted to know one thing.
Back in 1996 when he ran CBS' entertainment division, Leslie Moonves started an annual breakfast meeting with reporters on the day CBS presented its fall schedule to advertisers. "The power of shows such as "Roseanne" and "black-ish" rests in their ability to creatively appeal far beyond their base targets", Tiedje said.
"Let's be honest, this is all nonsense - our ratings are going down and our prices are going up", he told the Manhattan audience and those watching via livestream.
Would Roseanne still be as politically charged in the second season?
Midseason shows include a legal drama called "The Fix", by former Los Angeles prosecutor Marcia Clark; "Grand Hotel", set in Miami Beach and executive produced by Eva Longoria; Nathan Fillion ("Castle") as "The Rookie" in the Los Angeles Police Department; and "Schooled", a spin-off from "The Goldbergs" set in a 1990s high school with Tim Meadows. We can't lose Fox and [Grey's Anatomy producer] Shonda Rhimes in one year. The new drama "A Million Little Things", about a group of friends trying to fully live after the death of one of their own, will cap off the night.
Still, many viewers have taken issue with ABC for allowing "Roseanne" to be so overtly political (the reboot's season premiere saw Donald Trump-supporting Roseanne at odds with sister Jackie, who's a p-y hat-wearing Hilary Clinton backer) while "Black-ish" has been censored. ABC has some good news for fans of the current all-athletes edition of the show. She is ending her 15-year tenure at ABC Studios for a rich, multiyear deal at Netflix.
The presentation, which for the first time combined pitches from Disney and ABC, was indeed montage-heavy.
