Series Info

A loving but imperfect working-class family led by its `domestic goddess' mother was the basis of this classic, long-running sitcom. Issue-oriented storylines and its identifiable blue-collar characters made this the antithesis of the traditional warm-and-fuzzy family sitcom, and the success of its stand-up star inspired other comics (including Jerry Seinfeld and Tim Allen) to launch their own shows. Inexplicably snubbed for too many years by the Emmys, the series won a Peabody Award in 1993.

Critics Consensus: Roseanne's return finds the show's classic format, original cast, and timely humor intact, even if the latest batch of episodes suffers from sporadically uneven execution.

2018, ABC, 9 episodes

Critics Consensus: The Conners gain riches while Roseanne goes to rags in an incalculably ill-judged final season that trades the blue collar heart of the series in exchange for a series of outlandish wish-fulfillment.

1996, ABC, 31 episodes
