Ratings data on Wednesday showed that the premiere of the rebooted series starring original cast members Roseanne Barr and John Goodman was the most-watched show on USA television on Tuesday night with an audience of 18.2 million Americans. The star, a supporter of President Trump, has said the show would deal with the hot political moment the country is in. ABC says this is the highest-rated comedy telecast on any network in almost four years, since a season premiere of "The Big Bang Theory" in 2014, reports Entertainment Weekly.
"Roseanne" returned to the ABC lineup Tuesday night and brought in a very impressive 18.2 million viewers.
It will be a challenge for Roseanne to keep the numbers that high for the whole nine-episode run, but after a night like that, the revival will nearly certainly get a second season if the cast decides they're up for it.
"Rosanne revival wins huge ratings", said The New York Times, while Vanity Fair said the new show "completely smashed all ratings expectations".
Even more impressively, Roseanne redux didn't just do well with older fans who remembered the show's first run.

In the premiere episode of season 9, Roseanne explains what happened to Jerry while the family says grace at the table.
