The White House declined to provide any additional details about the call, which occurred on a day when the President had no public events.
"It was pretty exciting, I'll tell you that much", Barr, 65, sad during a call to "Good Morning America". Her revamped sitcom tackles current politics, with Roseanne embracing Trump, and clashing with her sister, a staunch opponent.
Barr, who voted for United States President Donald Trump, has said that she wants the reboot, in which she is a grandmother who voted for him in the 2016 election, to portray a U.S. in which half the voters chose him.
NBC's "Will & Grace", for example, returned this season with its original 1998-2006 cast to a debut audience of 10.1 million viewers and was quickly renewed for a second and then a third season.
President Trump, of course, was thrilled with the revived TV show's ratings. In a New York Times interview with Barr published on Tuesday, the comedian said she felt making Roseanne Conner a Trump supporter because it was an "accurate portrayal" of the political beliefs of working-class Americans.
"We just kind of had a private conversation", she said.
President Trump wasn't the only person in his family to congratulate Barr. "But you know, we talked about a lot of things. I just looked like a stop sign!" I've known him for many years and he's done a lot of nice things for me over the years. "It was just a friendly conversation about work and television and ratings".
"Roseanne" star John Goodman hates watching re-runs of his hit sitcom because he can see all the episodes where he was drunk. He also thanked her for her real-life support, which she hasn't been shy about in the past.
