The ‘Roseanne’ Couch Is Coming To North Carolina And The House Is For Sale

Iconic TV furniture is having a moment. The diner booth from the final scene of The Sopranos recently sold on eBay for $82,600. Now another familiar fixture will be in the spotlight. According to the Remind Magazine, the plaid couch made famous on the sitcom Roseanne is going on tour. COZI TV and GalaxyCon have teamed up to take the couch on tour to celebrate the show, which aired from 1988 to 1997. The traveling inflatable version of the iconic couch and the living room will be part of several GalaxyCon stops throughout the year. That includes four days in Raleigh, North Carolina, July 25-28 at the Raleigh Convention Center. The fact that it's just an inflatable replica is a little disappointing. It would be better if you could also buy one there. Prior to the Raleigh tour stop, COZI TV will be airing a 20-episode marathon of Roseanne from July 8-12 in honor of Roseanne Couch Week. You'll be able to catch four episodes each night beginning at 11:00 pm ET. The week-long marathon will actually be hosted by an animated talking couch wearing an afghan, just like on the show. The couch will share some behind-the-scenes stories and favorite moments from the show, as well as share photos of its appearances at GalaxyCon. 'Roseanne' House For Sale If one piece of furniture isn't enough for you, how about an entire house? As in the Conner family's house! WTHR-TV reports that the home that was used for exterior establishing shots on both Roseanne and The Conners recently went on the market. The 2,360-square-foot house is located near the University of Evansville at 619 Runnymeade Avenue in Evansville, Indiana, even though Roseanne took place in Illinois and was filmed in Los Angeles. Matt Williams, who created Roseanne and Home Improvement, is a native of Evansville. The inside of the Evansville house doesn't look anything like it did on the sitcom, but it doesn't look bad. The home has four bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a basement, and a detached garage. It's being sold “as is,” but has fresh paint and new carpeting. It's possible that it has already sold because the Zillow listing shows that it's "pending." I'm not surprised it would have been snatched up so quickly. It was priced at only $225,000.
