It was a second great week for Rosanne. We said a few days ago that the numbers may be a little lower than after the first episode. The second week ratings were around 15.2 million down around three million from the week before. Looks like a solid hit the second time around!
This day in 1987 Fox debuted with it’s first prime time lineup. If you recall it was a Sunday night that began with “Married With Children”, “The Tracey Ullman Show”, later “21 Jump Street” would help solidify the Sunday ratings. “The Simpsons” didn’t debut on Fox until 1989. It began as a sketch on the “Tracey Ullman Show.”
