The Wrap: ‘Roseanne’ Passes ‘Sunday Night Football’ and ‘This Is Us’ to Become TV’s Top-Rated Show

“Roseanne” is now the highest-rated show of the 2017-18 TV season, surpassing NBC’s “This Is Us” and even the No. 1 network’s “Sunday Night Football.”

As of the latest weekly Nielsen data stream covering results through April 15 — so, not counting last night’s steady episode of the ABC sitcom — the revived Conner Family classic is currently averaging a huge 6.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to its host network’s tally. That gaudy number counts the show’s available delayed viewing — up to seven day’s-worth per episode — for its first three weeks back on the air.

Per data also provided by ABC, NBC’s “This Is Us” averaged a 5.4 rating and the same network’s “Sunday Night Football” scored a 5.9 rating over the course of their latest wrapped TV seasons.
