2010-11 Season Broadcast Primetime Show 18-49 Ratings Averages

Without further ado here are all the broadcast primetime show adults 18-49 ratings for the 2010-11 season.

Three things to note:

  • These are "Most Current" ratings measurements. They combine Live+7 Day ratings for shows through 5/15/11 with Live+Same Day ratings for shows since 5/16/11. This is how Nielsen provides season averages to the press. If I get my hands on Live+Same Day season averages I may post them as well.
  • They include both original and repeat airings in each show's standard timeslot, but any episode designated as a "special" for any reason is not included in the season averages.
  • This list includes Live+ Same Day ratings for episodes that aired between May 26-29, 2011 as well, which was outside the broadcast "season".

If you’d like to see the same list of 2010 broadcast primetime shows ranked by average viewership click here.
