Last Night’s ‘Roseanne’ Finale Dominated Every Other Show In Primetime
ABC’s reboot of “Roseanne” had its season finale on Tuesday night, and it absolutely dominated every other competing show on primetime.
“Roseanne,” which returned this spring, enjoyed consistently monstrous success with every episode. (RELATED: You Won’t Believe The Monster Ratings The ‘Roseanne’ Premiere Got)
And its season finale took home similarly massive ratings, beating out NBC’s “The Voice,” and CBS’s “NCIS.” (RELATED: The Delayed ‘Roseanne’ Ratings Are In. Turns Out, It Did Even Better Than Expected)
“The ninth and final episode of the series’ 10th season averaged a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.3 million viewers, in line with how it had performed with night-of viewers in recent weeks — if off a shade for a season-low,” the Hollywood Reporter says.
And now that “Roseanne” has wrapped up its first season, the numbers speak for themselves. The season completely overtook competing shows with similar time slots, like NBC’s “This Is Us,” and CBS’ “Big Bang Theory.”
Just to put into perspective how insanely popular “Roseanne” was after its reboot, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey speculates that 1 in 10 Americans has watched the “Roseanne” season premiere on one platform or another. Here’s to hoping its second season, which was recently renewed, enjoys equally monstrous success.
