The Ratings Are In — And 'Roseanne' Is 'Queen' of Prime Time

Comedian Roseanne Barr's sitcom is continuing to dominate prime time.

On Tuesday, according to Nielsen, the third episode of Barr's eponymous comedy series, “Roseanne,” garnered a 3.4 rating/15 share, drawing more than 13 million viewers. It earned nearly two times the amount of viewers as the next highest-rated show, NBC's “The Voice.”

TheWrap even dubbed Barr the “queen” of prime time.

The show immediately following Barr's 8 p.m. sitcom, “The Middle,” drew more than 7 million viewers, and the series after that, “Black-ish,” attracted just over 5 million watchers, according to TV by the Numbers.

“Roseanne” did see a slight decline from last week, when more than 15 million viewers tuned into the revived series. Regardless, Barr still dominates prime time.

In late March, actor Rob Lowe said Barr's show — which depicts a family torn over President Donald Trump — is so successful because it “celebrates people with huge political difference” without demonizing them.
