2017-2018 TV Season Delayed Viewing Ratings: ‘Roseanne’ Goes Out on Top

The final Live+7 numbers for the traditional September to May season are in the books.

Overall, “Roseanne” had the biggest haul in both adults 18-49 and total viewers. The show averaged a lift of a 2.2 rating in the key demo for an average seven-day total of a 5.7. In total viewers, the now-canceled ABC sitcom revival typically added 6.472 million viewers for an average of 19.96 million.

In total gain, however, “Roseanne” was narrowly edged out in both measures. “This Is Us” averaged a gain of a 2.3 in the demo during its sophomore season, though in fairness that number was no doubt inflated by the show’s post-Super Bowl episode. In total viewers, fellow ABC series “The Good Doctor” averaged a gain of 6.939 million viewers to “Roseanne’s” 6.472.

Along with “The Good Doctor,” several other freshman shows made it onto the high end of the delayed viewing charts this season. Fox’s “9-1-1,” “The Gifted,” and “The Orville,” and CBS’ “Young Sheldon,” “SWAT,” and “SEAL Team” all cracked the top 25.
