If you tuned in to watch the re-boot of the TV series "Roseanne" on Tuesday night, you were definitely not alone! 18.4 million viewers tuned in to watch the Conner family reconnect, 21 years after the show’s finale.
The show was the highest adult 18-49 rating for any comedy telecast since the 2014 season opener of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory.”
“Roseanne” even performed better with viewers than its May 1997 finale, which averaged 16.6 million viewers on May 20, 1997.
We don't want to jinx it but execs are already talking about a 2nd season just based on the success of the first episode alone!
Check out this cute tweet that John Goodman sent to Roseanne after the numbers came in after the first show!
