“Roseanne” Finale Beaten by “NCIS” But Stays Above 10 Million Total Viewers, Promotes Trump Again


The finale of “Roseanne” scored 10.3 million viewers, which was fine and more or less stable with the show’s ratings the last few weeks.

But it was also beaten by “NCIS” by a million viewers. “Roseanne” — as I wrote last night– promoted the Trump agenda and wasn’t particularly funny. “NCIS” had 1.4 million more viewers from 8-9pm.

“Roseanne” returns in the fall, for better or worse, with a new executive producer as Whitney Cummings is leaving.
