The actor appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Monday night where the host asked him about doing The Conners after Barr was fired from the Roseanne revival earlier this year over a racist tweet.
“She is missed, definitely,” Goodman said, but explained that he was glad the show was brought back again regardless.
“After that many years, it’s like a family,” he said. “Last year was so miraculous and so unreal that when it went away it was almost like a dream.”

Goodman added that following Barr’s tweet and the Roseanne cancellation, he “crashed for a couple weeks.”
The 66-year-old actor also expressed his thanks to Barr for allowing The Conners to move forward.
“She gave up a lot so that people could work,” he said.
