TV Show Ranking 2009-2010 (Broadcast Network)

Despite the slump, American Idol is still the #1 show on TV, as this finale series ranking from Neilsen proves it.

This ranking is composed of two parts. The first one is the audience share (demographics) and the second is for total viewers. Each part is very significant to how networks decide on which shows are staying or going.

Based on this list, Undercover Boss, a reality show where CEO's disguise themselves to join their workforce, emerges as the #1 new series of the season, while Glee has the distinction of being the #1 new scripted series, along with NCIS LA.

The #1 comedy to beat is The Big Bang Theory. While NCIS (the original one) wins it big for its network. I'm glad The Mentalist is still ranking on top and that 24 left the boob tube with very high ratings overall, as well.

The list, after the cut.

  1. Life Unexpected has more viewers than Gossip Girl? Wow! And I so need to watch Brothers & Sisters. :)

  2. Gossip Girl stays for the hype around it, I guess.

    And Brothers & Sisters is good. You would want to be part of the family/siblings if you watch it. =)

    Bones should be #1 ........Yuck...american idol is still number one...castle should also be a little higher and if it were up to me then Glee wouldn't even be on here, nor would Gossip Girl...
