What could be called Roseanne Classic will begin on Paramount with a day-long April 17 marathon of episodes showcasing the relationship between Darlene (Sara Gilbert) and David (Johnny Galecki). The Darlene-David romance is set to be a storyline on the new ABC Roseanne revival that night.
The Paramount marathon will run from 9 am to 8 pm, leading up to the new series.
The regular run of Roseanne reruns kicks off Wednesday, April 18, with four half-hour episodes running each weekday from 4-6pm ET/PT. The original series ran on ABC from 1988-1997.
The new Roseanne debuted to 27.3 million viewers, and held strong in its second week retaining 87% of its premiere L+SD audience.
