Roseanne season 10 ratings fall in second week; Chicago Med discussion

Roseanne season 11We know that the Roseanne season 10 ratings at present are really the talk of the town, so we don’t want to bury that within this article. It’s a case of good news and bad news for the ABC revival at present but we happen to think that they are going to focus a little bit more on the former.

Overall, the third episode of the show (remember that the premiere featured two episodes airing back to back) ended up drawing in total a 3.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic to go along with more than 15 million viewers — these are drops of more than 25% and 17%, respectively, from the first week. Yet, we don’t exactly think that the series is in any danger anytime soon. It was expected that the show would lose a little bit of ratings momentum just because the first episode had so many headlines around it and, to go along with that, was at the center of political debate. The series will probably settle in to around a 3.0 rating at the end of the season and we can’t envision anyone over at ABC being altogether upset about that. This is still enough to make Roseanne one of TV’s biggest shows.

If you missed it last week, it does already have a season 10 renewal. You can read a little bit more about that just by heading over to the link here.

Let’s talk about Chicago Med

To be specific, let’s talk for a moment about how the NBC series seems to actually have better ratings than the show airing before it in Rise, which drew just a 0.9 rating for this past episode. Why not switch these two timeslots around so that Chicago Med can get a little more help? The only reason for the network to not make that move is because they are already certain that they are bringing back Chicago Med, whereas Rise is more clearly a bubble show and they haven’t quite figured out what its fate is going to be just yet.

If you are a fan of Chicago Med, just go ahead and applaud the writers and cast for finding a way to make a series that has been so consistent so far this season. There was a time last year where this was considered a bubble show and we don’t quite think that this is the case anymore.

One other thing worth noting

With a 1.2 rating in the demo and over 11 million viewers, Bull is quickly turning out to be one of the most solid series ratings-wise on all of television. Heck, at this point it’s close to being within striking distance of NCIS for the #1 CBS show on the night.
