A Crazy Amount of People Watched the Roseanne Premiere

With DVR usage included later on, it could easily exceed 20 million viewers, a rare watermark for any scripted programming in this day and age.

With its gay characters and left-leaning politics, "Will & Grace" was a comedy the media and viewers could embrace.

Is the show pro-Trump?

In Hollywood, that's like showing up on Easter morning saying you're the anti-Christ.

The opening episode, though primarily focused on reintroducing the Conner family and their current lives, took care to include political jokes, ranging from comments about Russian Federation, deplorables and #MAGA. The people applauding this show appear to be muffling the cries. asking for the show's cancellation today online.

Because of Roseanne's strength, ABC's entire Tuesday lineup benefited. Tuesday's inaugural two-parter was seen by 18.2 million viewers, making this the highest-rated sitcom launch of the season.

The show garnered an impressive 5.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 18.2 million viewers for the hour.

The show biz veteran took to Twitter on Wednesday to thank her fans for the enormous show of support as she got back in the game with her most high-profile project in years.

Maybe it's not so bad to be working-class after all. What's incredible is that entire cast returned for the revival, even both Beckys, but what sparked massive intrigue was the revelation that Roseanne Conner was going to be a Trump supporter.

His returning co-stars include: Sara Gilbert (The Talk) as lippy daughter Darlene, Laurie Metcalf (The Big Bang Theory) as Roseanne's neurotic sister Jackie, Michael Fishman (Seinfeld) as son D J, and Lecy Goranson (The Extra Man) as daughter Becky. People like her because she's a straight shooter. "I like colors that pop", he says. Like Will & Grace, itself renewed through a third season of the new run, Roseanne's comeback was inspired by the current political climate. 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.
