Roseanne Season 11 already? The revived sitcom’s renewal chances have taken a huge surge, with the first episode delivering huge numbers, per Deadline:
ABC’s Roseanne reboot delivered premiere demo ratings we haven’t seen on broadcast TV in awhile. The first of the two episodes drew massive 17.7 million viewers and a 4.9 rating in adults 18-49. The second episode at 8:30 PM rose even higher to 18.6 million viewers and a 5.3 in 18-49. For the 8 PM hour, Roseanne averaged a 5.1 in 18-49 and 18.2 million viewers.
That was up from the strong return of Will & Grace on NBC last fall (3.0 in 18-49, 10.2 million) and is certain to lead to a quick Season 2 renewal for the blue-collar sitcom starring Roseanne Barr. Roseanne easily ranks as the biggest series debut this season, topping CBS’ Young Sheldon (17.2 million, 3.8), which had a big The Big Bang Theory lead-in.
With these numbers, Roseanne Season 11 (Season 2 of the revival) is coming soon.
Should Roseanne be renewed or cancelled on ABC? Stay tuned and be the first to know…
