18-49 Viewership to Ratings Converter

I'm introducing a new tool on this site which automatically converts 18-49 viewership into 18-49 ratings. The tool is available by clicking here or on the sidebar of the site under the "Other Data" heading. It is currently programmed to return ratings back until the 2004-05 TV season, but if I'm ever able to find Universe Estimates from the 2001-02, 2002-03, or 2003-04 seasons then those will be added as well. 

I'm also hoping to add a (potentially more helpful) inverse calculation where the 18-49 rating would be inputted and the estimated 18-49 viewership is returned. That is slightly trickier because the calculator would have to return a range of values that fit within the rating, so I'm currently working on figuring out the best way to do that without having to calculate every single range by hand. If anyone has any ideas and/or is proficient in Javascript, please feel free to provide suggestions.

I'm happy to announce that the inverse calculation tool is also now available by clicking here. This tool will take any 1-decimal or 2-decimal 18-49 rating and return the corresponding range of 18-49 viewership figures from a particular season. This also goes back to the 2004-05 season but hopefully will be expanded back if additional Universe Estimates are found. I'm also going to try to make some functionality that allows for the calculation of wider ranges from 1-decimal 18-49 inputs.
