Rebooted Pro-Trump ‘Roseanne’ Ratings Released….Wow!

After being off the air for two decades, ABC released a rebooted pro-Trump version of Roseanne. The ratings are officially in.

The first two episodes on Tuesday reeled in a 5.1 rating in the key demo, with 18.1 million viewers. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, this makes Roseanne “highest-rated regularly-scheduled scripted show of the last few seasons, as well as the highest-rated sitcom in recent memory.”

The launch of this show was so hyped that it allowed ABC to sell 30-second ads for $175,000.

NBC did a similar relaunch with Will & Grace. For comparison’s sake, their premier did a 3.0 rating in the key demographic which means a little over 10 million viewers. If you’re keeping score that means 8 million less viewers than “Roseanne.”

Leading up to the show’s relaunch, Roseanne Barr has defended President Trump. Most recently she did this on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

During the exchange between Barr and Kimmel, he tried to uncover her as being “very liberal.” Barr fired back, “I’m still the same, you all moved! You all went so f***ing so far out, you lost everyone!”

It’s said to be a “foregone conclusion” that the show will be renewed for a second season. Add Roseanne to the list of shows that came back for a revival after being dormant for a long-time. This one took a very different approach than the ones before them.
