ABC says ‘The Conners’ will be the biggest new TV show of the season, even if just half of the ‘Roseanne’ audience watches

- The “Roseanne” spin-off, “The Conners,” premieres on ABC on Tuesday.
- ABC exec Andy Kubitz told Vulture that the show will be “the number one new show for the season” if even half of the “Roseanne” audience tunes in.
- “Roseanne” was the biggest show of the year, and still had over 10 million viewers by its finale in May before it was canceled.
ABC’s “Roseanne” reboot was short-lived, but the controversy surrounding it doesn’t mean a death sentence for its spin-off, “The Conners,” which premieres Tuesday.
