COZI TV, CARSEY-WERNER PARTNER TO CELEBRATE ICONIC COUCH FROM HIT SITCOM ‘ROSANNE’

Oversized Inflatable Couch to Appear at GalaxyCon Events & Host Special Marathon

NEW YORK – (March 11, 2024) – COZI TV, NBCUniversal Local’s national multicast network, is partnering with Carsey-Werner Television to shine the spotlight this year on the unheralded star of many memorable scenes from its primetime staple “Roseanne” – the hit sitcom’s iconic couch – through a series of events and special programming, beginning this month.

COZI TV today announced a comically over-sized, inflatable “Roseanne” couch, matching the version used on the show, will embark on a nationwide tour of GalaxyCon fan events, which are scheduled for Richmond, Va., March 15-17; Raleigh, N.C., July 25-28; San Jose, Calif., Aug. 16-18; and Miami, (date TBD).

As part of the initiative, COZI TV will present “‘Roseanne’ Couch Week,” July 8-12. Comprised of 20 episodes, the multi-part marathon will begin nightly at 11 p.m./10 p.m. ET, and will be hosted by an animated, crocheted, afghan-wearing talking couch. Over four episodes per night, the verbose couch will spill the stuffing on behind-the-scenes stories and favorite moments from the show, as well as photos of GalaxyCon attendees’ encounters with the colossal replica.

The tour and special week of episodes come as “Roseanne” is transitioning from standard to  high-def episodes, remastered with the use of fast-evolving AI technology that, combined with human artistry, allows studios to convert episodes from their original low-quality tape sources into HD 16×9 master materials on an ongoing basis.
