We hope you find this useful. We'll be keeping these updated on a near daily basis. If you notice any missing shows/ratings or any other errors, please let me know in the comments.

Alternative TV Ratings Scorecard 2016/17

NOTE : I started this last year so I thought I would continue this again for the new season. You can see the table for 2012/13 here.

I’ve been fascinated with TV Ratings for several years after wondering why some of my favourite TV shows were getting cancelled. So it was great that I stumbled on SpoilerTV and their detailed daily ratings, Full Tables and their excellent Cancellation/Renew Tables.

As a result I've tried to come up with my own formula/ratings to see how well a show is performing and after chatting with DarkUFO and he’s allowed me to make this a post on the site that I hope to keep updated fairly regularly, probably each Monday.

I've tried to simplify the formula to come up with a “Score” for each broadcast show. The formula is basically calculated as follows

- The bulk of the “score” comes from the 18-49 Rating as this is where the bulk of the advertising money and hence profits for a show come from
- We also look at the total number of viewers and give shows with large numbers a better weighting
- Shows that are on Fridays get an increased weighting as these tend to have lower numbers
- Shows on the CW also get a weighting increase as it's a much smaller network than the big 4 (ABC/CBS/FOX/NBC)
- Shows which have 5 or more seasons get an increased weighting as they are likely to be in Syndication

Let’s look at some examples to show you what I mean.

Example 1
Show 1 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 10 Million viewers
Show 2 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 20 Million viewers

Show 2 will have a better “score” as it has more total viewers

Example 2
Show 1 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 10 Million viewers. It airs on Mondays
Show 2 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 10 Million viewers. It airs on Fridays

Show 2 will have a better “score” as it airs on Fridays

Example 3
Show 1 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 0.9 and has 3 Million viewers.
Show 2 on CW has a 18-49 rating of 0.9 and has 3 Million viewers.

Show 2 will have a better “score” as it airs on The CW

Example 4
Show 1 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 10 Million viewers. This is a new show
Show 2 on ABC has a 18-49 rating of 2.1 and has 10 Million viewers. Show is in it’s 5th Season

Show 2 will have a better “score” as it been running longer

So here is the full table so far. Obviously shows with a low score are not doing very well and shows with a large score are doing very well and are more likely to be renewed.
