The revival of “Roseanne” opened to big ratings for ABC Tuesday night — bigger than just about any non-sports show on the broadcast networks this season, in fact.
The show debuted to a 5.1 rating in adults 18-49 and 18.16 million viewers. Only the post-Super Bowl “This Is Us” had a better 18-49 rating this season. It also had a halo effect on the rest of ABC’s lineup, as “Black-ish” (2.6) was more than double its season average and “Splitting Up Together” premiered to a strong 2.2. “For the People” had its best showing to date with a 0.9.
“The Voice” (1.6, -0.5 vs. last week’s fast nationals) and “Rise” (0.8, -0.3) both took good-sized hits on NBC. “Chicago Med” (1.0, -0.2) was also down.
The other networks fared somewhat better. “NCIS” fell 0.2 from its last episode to 1.3 on CBS, and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9) came down a tenth but “Bull” was steady at 1.2.
“Black Lightning” held steady at 0.5 on The CW. “LA to Vegas” was even with last week’s preliminary o.6 (it adjusted up in the finals) for FOX, while “The Mick” came down a tenth to 0.6.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||2.8/10||1.2/5||1.1/4||0.5/2||0.4/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||9.90||6.39||10.33||1.90||1.18|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
