KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Ratings data on Wednesday showed that the premiere of the rebooted series starring original cast members Roseanne Barr and John Goodman was the most-watched show on US television on Tuesday night with an audience of 18.2 million Americans.

During a chat with Howard Stern yesterday about the new iteration of her beloved ABC sitcom, Roseanne Barr revealed that she asked George Clooney if he'd come back - but the A-lister turned her down. It scored the highest rating for a comedy since The Big Bang Theory's 2014 fall premiere.

The 8 PM first episode of the Roseanne revival premiere drew a massive 17.7 million viewers and a 4.9 rating in adults 18-49.

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. Will and Grace grabbed nearly 11 million viewers in its return debut before averaging about half of that for the remainder of the season.

The revival of the TV sitcom "Roseanne" caused quite a stir when star and creator Roseanne Barr first announced her character would be a Donald Trump supporter.

"I am so grateful to the fans of the Roseanne show for giving it a good premiere rating".

Isolating only scripted fare, "Roseanne" was ABC's most-watched show since a 2008 "Desperate Housewives" season premiere and the network's highest rated since a "Modern Family" season premiere in 2012. "You are all wonderful - here is to making America laugh & talk again! LOVE U", Ms. Barr tweeted on Wednesday. Instead, the series instead intelligently gave honest portrayals of the political and social conversations friends and family are constantly having today.
