It's funny you mentioned The Middle because it is the TV show that most reminded me of Roseanne in terms of portraying what an actual working class (or even middle class) home would look like. And where job stress wasn't something that resolved in 20 minutes.


I think the Roseanne reboot should improve after a couple of episodes when they shake off the rust and have a rhythm.

ABC’s revival of “Roseanne” slipped double digits from its premiere last week but still dominated broadcast on Tuesday night in the overnight ratings.
“Roseanne” averaged a 3.9 rating in adults 18-49 and 15.2 million viewers. The first two episodes of “Roseanne,” airing back-to-back last week, stunned industry analysts when they averaged a 5.2 and 18.4 million viewers between them. That means this week’s episode was down 25% in the demo and 17% in total viewers. However, only one episode aired this week and it was always likely that it would see some kind of decline.
The “Roseanne” bump translated into a good night for “The Middle,” which was up significantly airing immediately after the revival with a 2.2 and 8.3 million viewers. That is a new season high for the comedy series. “Black-ish” (1.5, 5.4 million) and “Splitting Up Together” (1.4, 4.8 million) both came down from the increases they saw thanks to “Roseanne” last week, but were still the top shows in their half hour time slots in the key demo. “For the People” drew a 0.8 and 2.8 million viewers at 10.


TV Ratings: ‘Roseanne’ Draws 15.2 Million Viewers in Week 2 – Variety
15.2 million viewers is pretty good, and better than I thought it would get in week two.

It looks like the first night's ratings weren't just a fluke.

Again, though, it's up to THEM to judge whether they are satisfied with what Trump does, not up to you to tell them they should not be satisfied.
Should have read had more carefully. Thanks

I keep forgetting about voting for my own best interest. Who started that?

I thought we were supposed to vote for what is best for the nation. Sometimes that is different than what is best for me.

I was super excited to watch the reboot, but the political content was a bit heavy handed for me. (This is from someone who spends lots of time on P&OC!)

I didn’t want to watch the tv-version of this board, and honestly, it was kind of like that.

I'm not a Trump fan whatsoever and I consider myself a moderate liberal, but I still watched the first week of Roseanne. And I'll watch the second, too (Hulu). And probably all the rest. I liked watching it when I was a kid and I can devote 30 minutes per week to it now, so I will. My husband, who is more to the right than I am, hates Roseanne, so he's not watching.

I really think people are putting too much into it and that the ratings are because people liked the old show, not because they like Trump, for the most part.

^^

It's a comedy show.

It's supposed to have a feeling people can relate to.

These are the times we live in.

A person can want nothing to do with trump and still watch Rosanne's show. She's probably got more fans than he has anyhow. The woman's welcome to her views, she's not too preachy or crazy so whatever.

As far as I’ve seen, Trump’s fan base is alone in thinking this.
