A pickup for a second season (11th overall) is a no-brainer. But as The Hollywood Reporter notes, ABC will get to charge even higher rates for commercials following the record-breaking ratings. Roseanne was already commanding $175,000 per 30-second ad, a rate that is sure to soar. "We’re thrilled that America has welcomed the Conner family back into their homes," said ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey in a statement. "The show is as fresh and relevant today as it was when it left the air 21 years ago. We can’t wait to see what the Roseanne team has in store for next year."
