In 1985, “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”. “Sheʹs a housewife from Denver, Colorado,” says Carson with that benign twinkle he reserves for fledgling comics. “This is her very first appearance on national television. Would you welcome Roseanne Barr.” “So Iʹm fat,” Barr says drily as she stakes the stage. “I thought Iʹd point that out.” This is really different: a female comedian not only talking sardonically about being fat but tossing off sassy, smart jokes about trailer-park culture. By the end of her set, when she gets to husbands as a subject, Barr is killing. The final joke: “This bugs me the worst: when the husband thinks that the wife knows where everything is. Like they think the uterus is a tracking device. 'Cause he comes in there, 'Hey, Roseanne, do we have any Chee-tos left?' Like he canʹt go over and lift up that sofa cushion himself.”

In 1991, David Tannyʹs Viewer Mail letter appeared on “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC asking how he can say “G.E. Sucks” w/o getting fired; G.E.'s answer…“We really do suck!” (August 24 12:30am ET/PT).
