The family comedy starring Nicole Sullivan premiered on October 20, 2008, and, in a unique programming strategy, stripped original episodes for a full week before moving into its regular timeslot (Tuesdays, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT).

"Rita Rocks" met with early success and frequently built on or retained the Reba audience. Since its debut, the first season has had more than 36.4 million viewers.
