To note: Law and order Obviously isn’t a new show, but it’s been off the air for so long that we’re treating it as a show in these ratings lists.
Averages are based on final national figures (live plus same-day viewing). Keep in mind that demo numbers are usually what’s most important to advertisers. So that’s how networks measure success. Advertisers generally pay more for the commercial time of a show with a higher demo rating. Because older viewers don’t count? No, it’s because younger viewers watch less traditional TV and are harder to reach. It’s also important to remember that the ratings are designed to estimate the number of people watching a show’s commercials, not the show itself. That’s what advertisers pay.
