Roseanne couldn’t stop smiling Wednesday, and for good reason.
The 65-year-old comic was snapped in New York City on the heels of her huge comeback to television, as her rebooted show garnered massive ratings in its return to ABC after more than 20 years.
The veteran star was in the Big Apple as she continued promoting the show with an appearance on Wendy Williams, clad in a black trench coat over a velvety golden top with a black top underneath.

Roseanne, who now resides in Hawaii, rounded out her ensemble with torn blue jeans and light brown boots, accessorizing with black sunglasses and earrings.
She had her wavy brown locks parted as she trudged on in her media tour pushing the show, which drew a total of 18.2 million viewers with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday.
John Goodman, who was lauded for his performance as Dan Conner in the episodes, was spotted at LAX returning from New York, clad in a comfortable ensemble of an ash grey zip-up hooded sweatshirt with light ash grey sweatpants, a navy blue shirt (with a pair of black sunglasses dangling from the collar), and black sneakers.
He had a big smile on his face amid the huge splash the show made in its return, as Roseanne tweeted Wednesday that she received a text message from Goodman that read, ‘HURRAY FOR THE CONNORS!’
Roseanne’s appearance on Wendy Williams Wednesday was marked by an awkward moment as Wendy asked her if she was ‘in a good place’ with ex-husband Tom Arnold, who recently penned a review of the reboot for The Hollywood Reporter.
Roseanne responded, ‘I was like, “Oh my God” – after a while, I’m not supposed to talk about it. But, yeah, they’re going to get Harvey Weinstein to review Rose McGowan’s next show.’
Wendy told Roseanne that Arnold didn’t ‘give it to [her] too bad’ in his review, to which she responded, ‘I didn’t read it; I don’t like talking about husbands, right, Wendy,’ in reference to rumors of infidelity that have dogged Wendy’s husband Kevin Hunter in their marriage.
