I’ve been doing complete season listings of all broadcast series ranked by adults 18-49 rating and total viewer average for years, and a lot of people in the TV industry have told me they find them very helpful. So here they are: the series rankers for the 2009-10 season in adults 18-49 and total viewers (scroll down for that). A few fun facts from the lists: The highest-rated new series this past season: CBS’ Undercover Boss. The highest-rated new scripted series: Fox’s Glee (in 18-49) and CBS’ NCIS: LA (in total viewers). The highest-rated series to get canceled: Fox’s 24. The lowest-rated scripted series to get renewed on the Big 4 networks: CBS’ Medium (in 18-49) and NBC’s Parks & Recreation (in total viewers).
