It’s safe to say that this reboot was one of the most successful yet!
The original show ran from 1988 to 1997 and was a hit then. Just to put this into perspective, when the Reboot to “Will & Grace” premiered it saw an audience of about 10 million!
“Roseanne” also scored TV’s highest rating for the 18 to 49 demo for any comedy telecast since 2014, the year that the season 8 premiere of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” held that title.
The only scripted show to have a bigger audience this season was the post-Super Bowl episode of NBC’s “This Is Us,” which brought in 26.9 million viewers — a number that benefited from a big bump from the game.
