Hannity announced the interview on-air Tuesday. It will air Thursday night, with additional portions on Hannity’s show the following night.

Barr’s top-rated show, the reboot of 1990s sitcom “Roseanne,” was canceled earlier this year after Barr made a racist comment on Twitter about Obama aide Valerie Jarrett.

Barr tweeted that the ex-White House adviser was the child of the Islamist organization Muslim Brotherhood and the movie “Planet of the Apes."

Barr apologized to Jarrett and the public after the tweet, but has since released a bizarre video defending herself for the comment.

“I thought the bitch was white!" Barr screams in the video. "I thought the bitch was white! F---!"

ABC announced Tuesday that its "Roseanne" spin-off, “The Conners,” which will not feature Barr, will premiere on Oct. 16.
