Roseanne Barr's New Television Series is a Success for Lifetime
We mentioned a few months ago that the actress was starring in a new television series, which is about her new passion of living a tranquil life being a farmer. Last week “Roseanne’s Nuts” made its debut on Lifetime in (the title, of course, is appropriate for many reasons) with 1.64 million viewers. In fact, the new docu-series has now become the fourth most-watched unscripted series launch in Lifetime’s history with the majority of the audience being women over the age of 25.
Barr has left California and is now spending her days in Hawaii, managing her livestock farm and 40-acres of Macadamia nut trees. The 16 half-hour episode series will follow Barr through her life on her farm, along with her longtime writer-musician boyfriend Johnny and son Jake. Catch the next episode tomorrow night (Wednesdays) at 9 p.m. And if you missed any previous episodes, you can watch the first two episodes on Lifetime’s website.
As we quoted in our previous post, Barr told Oprah “I’m coming back down to earth and keeping it real. They’ve said ‘Roseanne’s nuts’ for years, and now I’m going to make that a reality— I’m all about nuts now, Macadamia nuts!”
