Default Highest Nielsen rating for an entire season?

Hey everyone. I'm doing a list filled with facts about various sitcoms, among those facts are "Highest Nielsen rating during an entire season". Does anyone know what this particular show’s highest rating during an entire season was?

Any help is appreciated, thanks

I only have the ratings for the first 8 seasons and out of those seasons, the ratings were the best in the 1997-98 season being ranked at #15

Thanks, I guess that was the highest rating that show got in that case, since it had gone downhill for quite a few years by the 9th and final season.

Yup that's the Highest. What year did it end? It was still on the air in 2003 in my book.

It was a funny story with this show. During the fourth season, ABC saw how steady the ratings were for the show, so they renewed the contract to air the show until the ninth season. But, by the eighth season, ratings were really low, and they could not afford to air the show during the fall, so since they had to air a ninth season, they aired it in the summer of 2004, airing in a lot of different timeslots with a totally different storyline. The final season was really the time for writers and actors to just have fun with the show.

1998, and the 2 last seasons was aired on CBS I believe who bought the rights when NBC/ABC didn't want to air it anylonger.
