at .

The Conners Season 1 came to a close on Tuesday night with 7.7 million total viewers and a solid 1.5 rating in the demo. 

These numbers are the show's best since November. While not as big a hit as Roseanne was last year, The Conners has been a reliable performer for ABC and should be on the fall schedule.
