‘Roseanne’ Makes a Bus Bench Fake-Cozy

The TV show Roseanne is coming back and the marketing team came up with a fun way to generate buzz — and yes we’re biting by giving them publicity.

In any case this faux-couch is apparently drawing all sorts of gawkers and selfie-takers at the stop at 69th and Columbus. And yes it even has realistic-looking “tears”.

Thanks to Amy for the photo.

      What is it made out of?

      Very clever.
      Take note, advertising honchos: Providing something nice to the public is good business.

      I wouldn’t watch this reboot if they paid me big money.

      Do you know about this? Sounds cool, but….xxx, sd

      I will not be watching the Trumpian Roseanne reboot but this was well-played 🙂

      You don’t use quotation marks around the word ‘tears’, unless you’re pointing out the mistake.

      The show was unwatchable 25 years ago…

      Full “Roseanne” living room on the Times Square-GCT shuttle. It’s very cute – with afghan and thread-bare sofa benches, homey family portraits on the walls, and roaring “fireplace” at the end of the last/fist car!

      viral marketing at its finest

    10. Nelson says:

      One of my all time favorite sitcoms. Can’t wait to see the cast reassembled.

    11. Amy says:

      It’s made of printed plastic. No fabric but very realistic-looking “worn upholstery” with “tears.” (Proper use of quotation marks.)

      Thank you Roseanne for being such a staunch supporter of President Trump, and using your platform as a celebrity to point out the serious flaws the Democrats have presently and the “Messiah” President we had 2008-2016 who was truly awful both domestically and for foreign policy. Welcome back to TV.

      There is no room for bigotry and hatred on the UWS. They need to take that couch to the East side or down South where is belongs.

      Not much of a Rosanne fan (in real life or teevee life), but

      Happy St Patrick’s everyone!
