You’ve seen it a million times before.
Hollywood perpetuates liberal propaganda in an unbelievably condescending way.
But one new show proves they don’t have the ear of America.
Roseanne is back.
The 1990’s television sensation has finally returned after two decades since it’s series finale, and it’s better than ever.
Opening with Dan Conner (John Goodman) not being dead, Roseanne Barr and her dysfunctional family is back in the primetime slot.
The big twist behind the newly reinvented show is that Roseanne is a President Trump supporter. An anomaly in primetime television these days.
Unlike the original series, she’s now somewhat estranged from her liberal sister, Jackie Harris, played by recently Academy Award nominated Laurie Metcalf.
Roseanne premiered to rave reviews and astounding 17.7 million viewers.
Hollywood has always had an anti-conservative, pro-liberalism message with their content, but Roseanne just proved that they don’t know what they’re talking about.
“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.
Even more impressive, the politically charged Roseanne, which made pre-launch headlines for Barr’s support of Donald Trump, returned last night to an audience that was up 10% from the May 1997 finale telecast 21 years ago and topped the viewership of the final 12 telecasts of the original run’s 1996-97 season.
Roseanne scored the highest rated Tuesday entertainment telecast in 6 years among adults 18-49 and TV’s highest rated comedy telecast on any night in 3-1/2 years– since 9/22/14. It is the top scripted telecast this season only behind the post-Super Bowl episode of This Is Us.
The big Roseanne debut boosted black-ish (2.6, 8.7 million) to season highs, more than doubling its most recent Live+same day delivery (1.1, 3.9 million) and drawing its second largest audience only behind its series debut. Out of that, new comedy Splitting Up Together premiered to a solid 2.2 in 18-49 and 7.2 million viewers, ABC’s top Tuesday comedy debut since September 2015 (The Muppets). Even For the People (0.9, 3.6 million) got a big boost, surging 50% in the demo from its most recent episode.
NBC’s The Voice (1.6, 8.9 million) and CBS’ NCIS (1.3, 11.8 million) both took a hit against the monster Roseanne debut. The Voice fell 27% in the demo to a Tuesday cycle low; NCIS slipped two tenths.
NBC’s new drama Rise (0.8, 4.5 million) mirrored The Voice’s 27% drop, while Chicago Med (1.0, 5.8 million) was down 17% to a season low.
CBS’ Bull (1.2, 10.7 million) held steady, while NCIS: New Orleans (0.9, 8.6 million) dipped a tenth.
Fox’s LA to Vegas (0.6, 2 million) was even with last week’s fast national (down a tenth from the final), The Mick (0.6, 1.8 million) ticked down a tenth.
The CW’s Black Lightning (0.5, 1.54 million) held steady.”
Now the question becomes whether Hollywood will produce more conservative-friendly content.
They already mistakenly canceled Last Man Standing with Tim Allen.
Maybe now they’ll bring it back.
