Assorted Streaming News
“Roseanne” is now officially the No. 1 on television. According to Vanity Fair, this is the first time in 18 years that ABC has earned that distinction, when “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” had that top spot. “Roseanne” is also winning the key demo of viewers age 18-49. ABC hasn’t won that demo in 24 years, when “Home Improvement” had that distinction.
And although it’s unfortunately far less popular than “Roseanne,” the wonderful show “At Home with Amy Sedaris” will return for second season on truTV. That show is definitely a Streamline favorite.
