The ABC sitcom demolished the competition with an intimidating 5.1 demo rating, according to TV By the Numbers.

Roseanne returns original series stars Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Lecy Goranson, Sara Gilbert and Michael Fishman, along with newcomers Emma Kenney, Alicia Goranson, Ames McNamara and Jayden Rey. The production - which included dialogue that was positive toward President Trump and his administration - also won praise from Deadline Hollywood, CNN, USA Today and Variety, to name a few news organizations. It scored the highest rating for a comedy since The Big Bang Theory's 2014 fall premiere. An hour's worth of Roseanne Barr's rebooted ABC sitcom averaged a 5.1 rating/21 share among adults 18-49 and 18.2 million total viewers.

Roseanne's sister Jackie (multiple Emmy victor Laurie Metcalf) sports a "Nasty Woman" T-shirt and pink hat of the type worn at women's marches against the Republican president's administration.

The premiere of ABC's "Roseanne" reboot delivered blockbuster ratings for ABC.

What do you think about the Roseanne season 10 premiere ratings?

In fact, last night's overall audience tally was actually 10 percent better than the 16.6 million viewers the original 1997 series finale hauled in. But unlike Will & Grace, or any other scripted offering on U.S. TV at the moment, Roseanne presents a more varied take on Donald Trump's America.

"Honestly, people are giving me credit for getting it together, but honestly it was like kindling waiting to be ignited", she says.

Roseanne's brief run picks up next Tuesday, airing single episodes at 8 p.m. for another seven weeks.
