    1. FROM ABC

      ABC Tuesday Primetime (8-11pm – 9.9 million and 2.8/11): Driven by an impressive premiere for Roseanne leading to improvement across the night, ABC more than doubled its nearest Tuesday competition in Adults 18-49 (+155% – 2.8/11 vs. 1.1/5 – CBS and NBC tied). ABC posted its strongest Tuesday with series programming since September 24, 2013.

      · Towering over NBC’s The Voice and CBS’ NCIS in the 8-9pm hour to rank as Tuesday’s #1 TV show, ABC’s 1-hour premiere of Roseanne opened with an average audience of 18.2 million viewers and a 5.1/21 in Adults 18-49, building from its first half-hour to its second half-hour.

      o Roseanne scored Tuesday’s highest rated entertainment telecast in 6 years with young adults – since 2/28/12.

      o Roseanne opened with TV’s highest rating for any comedy telecast on any night in 3-1/2 years – since 9/22/14.

      o Roseanne delivered ABC’s best results in the 1-hour time period since November 2006 in viewers and since November 2009 in young adults – since 11/14/06 and 11/3/09, respectively.

      o Roseanne’s return built on its May 1997 finale telecast 21 years ago by 10% in Total Viewers (18.2 million vs. 16.6 million on 5/20/97), topping its final 12 telecasts that season.

    2. Wow didn’t think Roseanne would have done 18 million I didn’t watch only watched a few seasons of Roseanne original show in the late 80’s early 90’s.
