‘Roseanne’ Ratings Blowout! Premiere Is Top Comedy in 4 Years – Trumps Sunday’s Stormy interview in Adult Demo
The Roseanne relaunch took America by storm on Tuesday night.
Finally there is a show on national television for the other half of America.
Roseanne was back and she’s pro-Trump, anti-Hillary, anti-resistance and pro-American.
What a refreshing idea!

The results are in and Roseanne was a ratings blowout!
The relaunch was the most watched comedy in 4 years and even beat the Stormy Daniels Sunday “60 Minutes” video in the adult demo.
The return delivered an incredible 18.2 million viewers along with an equally impressive 5.1 rating among adults 18-49.
According to ABC, this is the highest-rated comedy telecast on any network in nearly four years (since a premiere episode of CBS’ The Big Bang Theory from 2014).
So, yes, even bigger than NBC’s mega-hit This Is Us during any of its regularly scheduled episodes, where the weepy dramedy usually tops out around a 3.0 adult demo rating (the special This Is Us post-Super Bowl episode was bigger, but that’s to be expected).
In the adult demo, it also trumps Sunday’s blockbuster 60 Minutes episode which featured an interview with Stormy Daniels.
