Weekly Nielsen Ratings: 1973-74 TV Season

Below is a collection of scans of the Nielsen pocketpieces covering the the 1973-74 TV season. It features the complete primetime broadcast Nielsen ratings for all programs airing from September 3, 1973 through April 21, 1974. The week of Dec. 24-30, 1973 was a black week and not measured by Nielsen. I do not currently have any scans for the summer portion of the season. The grids report both the "Total Audience" and the "Average Audience" but Average Audience is the standard Nielsen metric that should be used.

Ratings by Program: CW (2014-15)

This post is features the full Nielsen ratings for all first-run regular CW primetime programs that aired during the 2014-15 TV Season. For cable programs, I normally do a full "Ratings Recap" for each show, but because of the sheer volume of broadcast programs and episodes, it just isn't feasible to do that for every major broadcast program. Instead, I've taken all the data I've posted on the site and organized it by season and then by network in Google Sheets. Within each embedded sheet, programs are organized into tabs with their full season data available in each tab. For this season, HH data, P18-34, P18-49, P25-54, and viewership data is available for every first-run episode. There isn't any data here that isn't already posted in the weekly posts, but this is just a different way of looking at it.
