SoOoOoO, pretty much EVERYONE tuned into the Roseanne reboot.
As we previously reported, on Tuesday evening, the beloved ABC sitcom made its return to the small screen. And, per the Nielsen overnight ratings, A LOT of people watched the premiere.
By “A LOT,” we mean 18.2 million viewers during the hour it aired. DAYUMMMM!
It probably helped that ABC aired back-to-back episodes of the show from 8 to 9 p.m. Still, per Variety, Roseanne received a 5.1 rating in adults raging from 18 to 49 — which is pretty freakin’ impressive. For comparison, the Super Bowl episode of This Is Us drew a 9.3 and nabbed 26.97 million viewers.
And, again, NBC had the Super Bowl as the lead in for the special episode of TIU.
All we can say is… Well done, Roseanne and Co.
