Roseanne Barr's TV comeback in America has been a flop, with only 5.5 million people turning in to watch.

The comedienne was hoping her new reality show THE REAL ROSEANNE would spark new interest in her, but the programme, which debuted on Wednesday night (06AUG03), failed to set the ratings alight.

It was another reality show, Big Brother 4, which rules in America - it ran head to head with Roseanne's new show and registered its highest ratings so far this summer, almost doubling the viewing figures for Barr's show.
