Roseanne Barr is back.
Although Barr Tweeted in November that she was "never going work in television again," she returns as a new judge on Last Comic Standing, premiering Thursday.
"I like judging people," Barr, 61, tells PEOPLE of her return to the small screen. "I really like it and thought this would give me the opportunity to tell somebody the truth about something they do. They probably won't listen, but if they do they'll be doing themselves a big favor."
Barr had taken a break from performing or even viewing stand-up comedy, she says from her home in Hawaii.

Roseanne competing with Conan? Sort of. Her struggling daytime talk show has been assigned by several TV stations to start when most of the intended audience is asleep: 1 a.m. in Phoenix, midnight in Denver, 1:05 a.m. in Minneapolis (after an informercial). Other stations have dumped Roseanne entirely. Entering its second year, "The Roseanne Show" is fighting for its life. Roseanne herself is not talking about the situation, but her executive producer, Jeff Wald, isn't being press-shy. He said the show's recent cancellation by 11 NBC-owned stations was an attempt to strong-arm Roseanne into quitting. "I don't like bullies," said Wald (who has been accused of being a bully himself, especially when he managed his then-wife, singer Helen Reddy), "and I think they're trying to bully her."
