There are other indicators of popularity, but Nielsen provides network and sponsor with comprehensive information about viewer demographics, not just the number of eyeballs watching.

Actually, I'm not quite sure I understand your question. It's hard to argue against a show which places in the top 10 in the Nielsens being a hit, but it's certainly been done before--most infamously in the case of a show mentioned by a number of posters, Bridget Loves Bernie.
