Roseanne Rebuff: Ratings Drop by 3 Million Again, Hundreds of Tickets for Maryland Stand Up Comedy Show Remain Unsold, Price Drops to $18 Bucks


Last night’s “Roseanne” grabbed 10.3 million viewers. That’s down 3.1 million from two weeks ago, when the last new episode aired. It was beaten soundly by a first run episode of “NCIS.”

The show is slowly losing millions of viewers, draining like a pin pricked helium balloon.

“Roseanne” is not giving viewers what it promised in its first episode– a Trumpathon. There’s been no mention of politics since the that first installment– no pink pussy hats or any other discussion of Trump. Barr was clever– she ginned up the Trump base with this expectation, but even they are beginning to figure out they’ve been had.


Roseanne Barr is on the promo trail for her TV and her live performances.

But down in Maryland, folks are not that keen to her do her stand up.

Most of the seats at Roseanne’s May 17th MGM National Harbor in National Harbor, Maryland are still available. Things are so bad that the cheap seats are now going for just 18 bucks. And there are hundreds of them.

The top price ticket is $71, although if you wait til the last minute that price will come down. MGM National Harbor may have to “paper” the house if they don’t outright cancel the show.

Maybe Roseanne can add Kanye West as an opening act. His “Slavery is a Choice” album is due any minute.
