The reboot of "Roseanne" nabbed stellar ratings on Tuesday night, with 18.2 million viewers tuning in.

Actors Lecy Goranson, John Goodman and Roseanne Barr speak during SiriusXM's Town Hall with the cast of Roseanne on March 27, 2018 in New York City. Roseanne is supposed to portray a Trump supporter and deliver "a more varied take on Trump's America."

What's more, the second episode, which aired right after the first, scored even better: 18.6 million viewers tuned in, Deadline reports.

A similar relaunch, NBC's "Will & Grace", premiered with just a 3.0 rating in the key demographic with a little over 10 million viewers. Granted, neither installment can compare to the show's first season, which had an average of 23.8 million viewers.

Not all TV lovers were hopping on the revival bandwagon however, as some were not looking past Roseanne Barr's support of Donald Trump in real life.

It will be a challenge for Roseanne to keep the numbers that high for the whole nine-episode run, but after a night like that, the revival will nearly certainly get a second season if the cast decides they're up for it.

The politically charged reboot of "Roseanne" reportedly soared to a ratings win with its Tuesday premiere.

The return of "Roseanne" was met with reactions of cheers and jeers on social media as the back-to-back return episodes sought to answer lingering questions from when the show ended on ABC in 1997, TV Guide reported. "LOVE U", she tweeted. It was Twitter's top trending topic Wednesday night, widely praised for fairly portraying a family with differing political views.
