Last update: Latest ratings added for Resident Alien.
A few notes about these charts:
These numbers are updated automatically as new ratings are released (usually a day or so after broadcasts). Averages are based on final national figures (live plus same day viewing). For technical reasons, I have to resort to them manually, so feel free to let me know if I missed something.
Demo numbers, which are usually most important for broadcast networks, are not as important for cable channels because their audiences are usually much smaller. Demo numbers are usually reported using 10 decimal places (eg 2.4). On average, I use an extra decimal to make it easier to rank.
What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? What series should be better? Which one do you think will be canceled next?
