I’m putting up network scorecards again (these are for the week of October 13-19), but with the loss of Son of the Bronx’s full network ratings I can’t do household averages or median minute ratings, and with Nielsen coverage estimates no longer being consistently reported I can’t do normalized averages either. You may see me experiment with a few different methods of presenting the information in the chart; I may ultimately break primetime and total day numbers into two charts.
