Donald Trump Jr. Congratulates 'Roseanne' On Huge Premiere Ratings

“Roseanne” reboot nabs stellar ratings

Ms. Barr, a Trump supporter in real life, took comical digs at former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on the show while her sister Jackie, played by recent Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, took on President Trump, the magazine wrote.

People have been watching Roseanne reruns for almost 30 years, but this one is different. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "t$3 he show averaged a 5.1 rating in the key demo and 18.1 million viewers, rising from the first half hour to the next".

Whether the Roseanne revival can keep up that momentum remains to be seen.

The pro-Trump comedian made national headlines last week during a fiery appearance on late-night television; telling host Jimmy Kimmel to "zip that f***ing lip" after his repeated attacks on President Trump.

"If you're not too busy already maybe work in a late night show too. seems there's some demand for an alternate viewpoint", Trump Jr. tweeted.

The Roseanne premiere rating also grew slightly from its first quarter to its second, which is a good sign. "You are all wonderful - here is to making America laugh & talk again!" It's actually bigger than the final 12 episodes from that '97 run. It follows NBC comedy Will & Grace and Showtime's supernatural crime drama Twin Peaks, both of which returned to television in 2017. NBC's Will and Grace returned a year ago and has averaged almost six million live viewers in its comeback. What's ironic here is that despite all of the concern from some that Roseanne's political beliefs would alienate some of her audience, it actually seemed to help draw in an enormous conservative crowd that isn't being catered too elsewhere.
