ABC’s “Roseanne” reboot gave up its spot as the top Tuesday night show as the comedy took its first big dip in total viewers last night, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
“The ABC comedy landed with 10.3 million viewers and a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49, with respective spills of 23 and 26 percent,” THR reports. “It’s the first big drop for ‘Roseanne’ since it returned to the air with the biggest scripted telecast of the season.”
The report notes that the CBS drama “NCIS” moved into the top spot in total viewers on the night, beating “Roseanne” by 1.8 million.
“‘Roseanne’s’ status as the top broadcast series of the year seems to be in little danger, dips or not,” THR adds. “With the latest live-plus-3 averages for its first five episodes, its average 6.1 rating among adults 18-49 outpaces that of NBC’s ‘This Is Us’ by a sizable 30 percent.”
