Traditional Season Full Network Series Ranker

May 30, 2014 by Marc Berman in Highlights with 2 Comments

The broadcast networks are preaching 52-week seasons, with more original programming this summer (scripted and non-scripted) than ever before. But the crowing is loud, and it is plenty, based on the 2013-14 traditional (September to May) TV season, which officially ended on Wednesday, May 21.

“Sunday Night Football” on NBC topped the listing of 181 entries, with 21.53 million viewers and a 7.9 rating/20 share among adults 18-49 (based on the Live Plus Seven Day data – and Live Plus Same Day for the most recent two weeks from Nielsen). But CBS had the most number of shows in the Top 20 in total viewers, with eight, followed by five each on ABC and NBC, and two on Fox. ABC, meanwhile, had the most number of Top 20 shows in adults 18-49, with six, followed by five each for CBS and NBC, and four for Fox.

The ranking is arranged in order of total viewers and includes the adult 18-49 rating, share and rank; and the percent change from the comparable year-ago period in both categories. Series airing on more than one evening (including “The Voice” on NBC and “American Idol” on Fox), as well as series airing in more than one time period are listed individually. And shows not returning next season appear italicized in red.

      We, at TVMI, stand by all the data we output.

      As stated above, the list from Nielsen is “based on the Live Plus SEVEN-DAY data” with the exception of the final two weeks which were Live Plus Same Day (because this was originally posted shortly after the May sweeps concluded).

      Your numbers per “Criminal Minds” episode are solely “Live plus Same Day.”
