'Roseanne' Revival Premiere Gets Easter Sunday Rerun On ABC

Roseanne 'Roseanne' Reaction Mixed as Sitcom Returns
Michele Schwartz | 29 March, 2018, 02:33

Roseanne was only ordered for a nine-episode revival, but an average of 18.1 million live viewers undoubedtly has ABC thinking more long-term now. Roseanne demolished the same-day audience figures for the Walking Dead season opener (11.4 million), flew past the Thrones finale (12.1 million), and almost doubled what NBC's highly successful Will & Grace revival notched with its September premiere (10.2 million).

Ms. Barr, who offered plenty of input to the show's scripts, credited her viewers with the victory in the aftermath, offering lively accolades on her Twitter account, which has close to a half million followers. According to the network, the beloved show delivered the highest-rated comedy telecast on any network in four years, with the last one being CBS' 2014 premiere of The Big Bang Theory.

The show attracted a lot of attention since Roseanne Barr's character reflects her support for President Trump, and the program will explore how politics have impacted blue collar America.

ROSEANNE premiered to huge ratings as it returned to TV in the U.S. for the first time in 21 years this week.

For comparison's sake, NBC's reboot of "Will & Grace" in September drew a little over 10 million viewers and a 3.0 rating among 18- to 49-year-olds.

Roseanne's brief run picks up next Tuesday, airing single episodes at 8 p.m. for another seven weeks.

Mic did not see Barr's original tweet, but other users' responses to it are still up. (While Roseanne is still a Republican who voted for Donald Trump, Jackie is a staunch Democrat). Instead, the series instead intelligently gave honest portrayals of the political and social conversations friends and family are constantly having today.
