NEW YORK (AP) — The 10.5 million people who tuned in Tuesday night to ABC to watch the premiere of ABC’s sitcom “The Conners” is a classic half-full, half-empty story.

It was the first time the old “Roseanne” cast had appeared without Roseanne Barr, and viewers were curious how the sitcom would deal with her absence after she was fired by ABC. (Spoiler alert: Roseanne Conner died because of an opioid addiction).

The Nielsen company said Wednesday the audience for “The Conners” was larger than any other ABC show this new season, either new or returning. It was bigger than any new show on any network, narrowly beating NBC’s “Manifest.”

But it did not approach the 18.2 million people who watched the first episode of the “Roseanne” reboot last spring.
