Many “The Conners” fans were very excited about the guest stars returning. One Twitter user posted,
"I [love] the show! I missed [Juliette Lewis] and she looks amazing and who doesn’t love some Matthew Broderick."
In October, Lewis tweeted about the show to promote an episode she guest starred in. At the time, she wrote:
"Hey who’s watching [The Conners] TONIGHT?! 8/7pm c [central time]. I’m in it! I love this show- the writing, the brilliant actors, the humor! So happy to be a part of it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!"
“The Conners” is a show that was born out the now-canceled “Roseanne.” It came about after the main star Roseanne Barr was fired for a controversial tweet.
The network then agreed with Barr to pull her off the new spin-off. “The Conners” has consistently remained one of the top comedies on TV each week.

It currently has a 92 percent Fresh score on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics Consensus wrote:
"The Conners offers the comforts of its source show, but more focus on the family's ever-evolving dynamics adds a welcome layer of working-class empathy without losing any of the laughs."
I love The Conners! Awesome guest stars.— Anthony Watson (@WatsonFL) December 2, 2018
Despite Barr’s character being killed off in the new show, Dan, Barr’s former onscreen-husband and her sister, Harris, have remained close. The two clashes once in a while but they enjoy being around each other and act like family.
Viewers can see their comedic relationship by tuning in on ABC this Tuesday.
