TV Land and CMT already had been airing reruns of ABC’s original Roseanne when Paramount Network joined last month. The Carsey Werner series kicked off on Paramount Network with an all-day marathon on April 18, leading up to a new episode of the revival series airing that night on ABC. The reruns aired weeknights from 4 to 6 PM ET.
ABC abruptly pulled the plug on Roseanne Barr’s hit comedy series revival today following a morning in which the star launched a tirade of racist and anti-semitic tweets.
The Roseanne revival was the biggest success story of the 2017-18 TV season, clocking record ratings and a Season 2 pickup after only one episode. The series was the highest-rated and most watched freshman series of the 2017-18 season and ranked No. 2 overall among all entertainment programs in total viewers (17.82 million in Live+7) and in the adults 18-49 demographic (5.0 rating).
