Default Full Nielsen Ratings From The 1993-94 TV Season

I got out some of my old TV Guides and decided to upload a pic of the full Nielsen ratings for the 93-94 TV season that TV used to publish (or they not do this anymore?).

If you like, I can upload some more.

Also, I should note something a bit bizzare, I always though "Home Improvement" was the top rated show of the 1993-94 season (I also saw in this in EW) that same year.

But in the book, The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows, 1946-Present it list, "60 Minutes" as the top rated show. Even though both are taken for the same ratings data period (September-April).

Though I would share that anyway...

That's pretty cool. This was an awesome season for TV! It was also the season that "Boy Meets World" joined TGIF.

Great season indeed.

Besides, "Boy Meets World" which ran for 7 seasons, we also get other shows (some great, some not) that had respectable runs.

Here's a list of some shows that reached (some crawled) to at the very least a 4th season:

--"NYPD Blue" (12 seasons)
--"Frasier" (11 seasons)
--"The X-Files" (9 seasons)
--"Diagnosis Murder" (8 seasons)
--"Walker, Texas Ranger" (8 seasons)
--"Sister, Sister" (6 seasons)
--"The Nanny" (6 seasons)
--"Grace Under Fire" (5 seasons)
--"Living Single" (5 seasons)
--"Ellen" (then titled, "These Friends of Mine") (5 seasons)
--"Dave's World" (4 seasons)
--"The John Larroquette Show" (4 seasons)
--"Lois & Clark" (4 seasons)

Note, "The X-Files" is near the bottom of the list. Obviously it was a great idea for FOX to listen to the critics and it's viewers.

Also, "Seinfeld" steps it up a notch in a very big way...more than filling the void for NBC after "Cheers" left, something "A Different World" was never able to do for the "The Cosby Show" on the same night a season before.

In late night, Letterman moves to CBS, Conan takes over Letterman's place at NBC and FOX hopes to hit it big with "The Chevy Chase Show".

...And then there was the now forgotten great time slot battle over on Sunday's:

CBS--Murder, She Wrote (the aging long-time slot winner for almost a decade)
NBC--seaQuest DSV (Spielberg gets back into television and once again teams with the peacock in this big budget family show)
ABC--Lois & Clark (A speeding demo train for ABC)

Thanks for the list, could you post other part of the page where is syndication chart, I want to know if Star Trek: TNG was number 1 in snydication that year?

Could you upload final charts for 1980-81, 1981-82, 1983-84, 1984-85, 1987-88, 1988-89 and 1989-90 seasons?

Home Improvement aired several episodes at 8pm during 1993-94 TV season, maybe this chart doesn't include those 8pm airings.

Other final chart shows HI at 2nd place with 20.4 HH.

Maybe, but it still doesn't make sense. They list "The John Larroquette Show" twice for each time slot it was in for that season, so I have no idea.

I can't imagine TV guide would get the ratings wrong, this was an annual thing for them.

Anyway, as for your earlier post, I'll get some more ratings up.

As for how "Star Trek: The Next Generation" fared that season? According to issue it finished #3 with an 11.1 rating.

Thanks, it's same thing with Roseanne and Cosby for 1989-90 TV season.

Here are demo numbers for 93-94

1. ABC 7.5
2. NBC 6.8
3. CBS 6.7
4. FOX 5.0

Right, I have no idea why that is. Oh well, where did you get your ratings at? Did you have them or were they found elsewhere on the web?

I've been looking for years (because I am that cool) on more full nielsen ratings charts.

The only logical conclusion I an come up with is the date these numbers were compiled.

Nielsen only counted episodes that aired on 9pm for Home Improvement (I did also and I came with same number 21.8) because ABC designated 8pm airings as specials and as you know anything marked as special is not included into show average rating.

That was the second time a Steven Spielberg series battled "Murder, She Wrote" on Sunday nights and the second time that MSW came out on top.

I noticed a few shows with respectable ratings (Phenom, Someone Like Me, 704 Houser that still got the ax. Interesting.

That chart brings back a lot of memories. Thanks for sharing this! :-)
