TV Ratings: ‘Roseanne’ Holds Steady, Tops Tuesday for Fourth Week

Roseanne” was steady in its fourth week in the Tuesday overnight ratings for another win in both key measures for the night.

Airing on ABC at 8 p.m., “Roseanne” averaged a 3.4 rating in adults 18-49 and 13 million viewers. That is down a scant few percentage points from the 3.5 and 13.8 million viewers the sitcom revival drew last week. It was also the first time since the highly-rated one-hour premiere on March 27 that the show did not see double-digit declines week-to-week.

Freshman ABC comedy “Alex Inc.” aired immediately after “Roseanne” instead of its normal Wednesday time slot, no doubt to give the new show the ratings bump that “Roseanne” has given to ABC’s Tuesday lineup. The move paid off, with “Alex Inc.” up over 30% in both measures from last week with a 1.2 and 4.9 million viewers.

“Black-ish” (1.1, 4.1  million) and “Splitting Up Together” (1.0, 3.6 million) were both off from last week, while “For the People” (0.6, 2.1 million) was down in viewers.

“The Voice” (1.5, 8.2 million) ticked up in the demo from last Tuesday. “Rise” (0.8, 4.3 million) and “Chicago Med” (1.2, 6.2 million) were steady.

For CBS, “NCIS” (1.1, 11.3 million),”Bull” (1.1, 10.7 million), and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.8, 8.4 million) were down slightly in the demo.

On Fox, “Lethal Weapon” (0.7, 3.5 million) is at a series low. “LA to Vegas” (0.6, 2 million) tied its series low in both measures. “New Girl” (0.6, 1.7 million) is at a series low in the demo.

On The CW, “The Flash” (0.6, 1.9 million) and the season finale of “Black Lightning” (0.5, 1.7 million) were steady.

ABC won the night in the demo with a 1.3 but finished third in viewers with 5 million. NBC was second overall with a 1.1 and 6.2 million. CBS was third in the demo with a 1.1 but first in viewers with 10.1 million. Fox was fourth overall with a 0.7 and 2.7 million. The CW averaged a 0.6 and 1.8 million.
