Turns out last week’s 10 million viewers for “The Conners” were just curiosity seekers. “The Conners” had just 7.9 million viewers, down more than 2 million for the second week.
That’s a 28% drop.
Even the appearances of Johnny Galecki, Juliette Lewis, and Justin Long didn’t help. The World Series probably put a crimp in the ratings. But the NBC schedule–and CBS– did fine. “The Conners” finished 5th among non baseball programming.
“The Conners” has likely dropped to where it will stay and not go much lower. But it’s hard to say. “Roseanne” without Roseanne is interesting but not outrageous. Roseanne was the cackle at the end of the opening, the exclamation point. My guess is “The Conners” maybe gets another season, but there’s no guarantee.
