The ratings are in for the third week of “Roseanne” and once again the 90s reboot had another impressive night with 13.5 million viewers, according to the Hollywood Reporter Wednesday.
The Tuesday night ABC show dipped slightly in viewership from the premiere on March 27th by 12 percent, with 15.4 million viewers tuning in the week prior.
But the fourth episode still easily won the night, scoring a 3.4 rating among adults ages 18-49. The latest episode was down 13 percent in the coveted age group, which scored a 3.9 among adults ages 18-49 the week before.
In comparison, the premiere of the series scored a 5.2 rating in the same demographic and had 18.4 million viewers for the back-to-back episodes.
In total, the one hour debut on March 27th has brought in 27.3 million viewers and an 8.1 rating among adults ages 18-49 after figuring in Nielsen’s live-plus-three day and live-plus-seven day ratings. Those numbers measure the DVR playback between the initial night the show aired and the next few days after.
There are only five episodes left in the new “Roseanne” series. But ABC has already approved another 13 episodes for the 2018-2019 season.
