The debut of John Goodman
's new Fox comedy, Normal, Ohio
, got off to a decent start Wednesday night. The sitcom featuring the former Roseanne
star as a gay dad attracted 12.17 million viewers, second only to ABC's Who Wants to be a Millionaire
. What's more, Normal
finished first in the adults 18-49 demographic and retained 95% of its Halloween-themed Simpsons
lead-in in that bracket. Meanwhile, the series premiere of Fox's much-hyped Wall Street soap The Street
crashed and burned at 9 pm, coming in fourth place among total viewers (7.26 million).
