Roseanne Barr Fights Back With Hit Fox Nation Comedy Special

Comic/TV star Roseanne Barr is back with a vengeance.

The Feb. 13 debut of Roseanne Barr: Cancel This! — the first stand-up show by the controversial comedian since her namesake hit TV show “Roseanne” and reputation were simultaneously canceled in 2018 following a tweet about Valerie Jarrett, the black former senior adviser to Barack Obama — is a hit with streamers on Fox News Media’s Fox Nation subscription VOD platform, according to the service.

The conservative-themed platform, which features Fox News personalities such as Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity and Brian Kilmeade, among others, said Barr’s first-day viewership topped Yellowstone: One-Fifty With Kevin Costner — Fox Nation’s most-watched show of 2022 about the National Park’s 150th anniversary.

A sidebar feature, “Who Is Roseanne Barr?,” was the second-most-watched program of the day, with more than 50% of the viewers on Fox Nation tuned in for the Roseanne Barr-themed content.

Fox Nation, which launched in November 2018  as a companion to the Fox News Channel featuring opinion-based talk shows and documentaries, has never disclosed viewership metrics or revenue.

In the most-recent fiscal period, Fox said its “other” business segment, which includes Fox Nation, saw revenue increase 13% to $155 million from $145 million in the previous-year period — in part due to higher subscription streaming VOD revenue.
