  2. FROM ABC

    Leading off ABC’s Tuesday at 8pm opposite CBS’ top-rated NCIS and NBC’s The Voice, Roseanne attracted 13.0 million viewers and 3.4/15 in AD18-49, standing as the night’s #1 TV show for the 4th time in as many telecasts and leading ABC (5.0 million and 1.3/5) to win the evening for the 4th week running. ABC’s Tuesday numbers continue to trend up year over year, growing over the year-ago night with an all-original lineup (3.6 million and 1.0/4 on 4/18/17) by 1.4 million viewers (5.0 million vs. 3.6 million) and by 30% in Adults 18-49 (1.3/5 vs. 1.0/4). Please Note: Roseanne held exactly even with its week-earlier Fast Affiliate Adult 18-49 rating, which adjusted up 1-tenth in the Nationals

    · On average including delayed viewing, Roseanne has emerged as the 2017-18 season’s #1 TV show in both Total Viewers (23.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (6.7/28).

    · ABC is delivering its longest in-season Tuesday night winning streak in more than a decade – just breaking a streak that went from 10/3-10/17/06.

    A 8:30pm, a special Tuesday airing of Alex, Inc. shot up from last week’s regular telecast on Wednesday (4/11/18) by 37% in Total Viewers (4.8 million vs. 3.5 million) and by 33% in Adults 18-49 (1.2/5 vs. 0.9/4) to post the new comedy’s highest numbers yet.

  3. Quite a spectacular plunge for Roseanne…

    Where it will land, nobody knows, but my guess is much lower.

    But don’t worry, Hollywood will use it as justification for 10 more years of bad remakes even if it should kill network TV, which is pretty much already dead at this point. 🙁

  4. With Big Bang Theory and NCIS having lost their status as genuine hits (after all these years nothing shameful) there are no longer any hits on the networks.

    RIP. 🙁
