Fine print: Number of episodes is approximate. If two episodes aired the same week they were usually counted as 1. A shows rating is dependent on factors such as the show that airs before it, the shows that air the same time as it, the popularity of the network, the night the show airs (Fri and Sat have lower ratings), and so on.

I decided to figure out the standard deviation of the rating for each show, and I found some things that you may (but probably not) find interesting. First year shows tend to have a high standard deviation, as the first episode shows a much higher viewership than the rest. For example, the first episode of Terminator had a 11.1 rating. The finale had a 4.9. Private Practice and Bionic Woman showed a similar ratings decline. Otherwise, the shows with the highest standard deviation tend to be the ones that get moved around the schedule:
The Moment Of Truth-This also declined like the other first year shows, but it also dropped after being moved from before American Idol to after. The move cost it more than 4 million viewers. One week it aired on Monday, and lost an additional 2 million additional viewers.

Samantha Who?-this one didn't show a drop after the first episode like most 1st-year shows do. It does however, shows the power of Dancing With the Stars. When DTWS went off the air in December, Samantha Who? lost half its audience. We also see the effects of the long hiatus. When it returned in March (once again after DWTS), it had lost 4 million viewers.

60 Minutes-this one is interesting. 60 Minutes averaged a 10.3 when following a CBS Football game, and averaged an 8.3 when the late game was on FOX. It also had the misfortune to go up directly against an NFL playoff game, which got a 6.3 rating, and up against the Super Bowl, which got a 3.4 rating. After football season ended it averaged a 7.5 rating.

CSI-this is really strange. The episode that aired November 22, 2007 averaged an 8.5 household rating. That's 2 full points below the next closest episode this season, and 5 points lower than the rating the week before. It took me quite a while to figure out why. The previous week, Jorja Fox as Sara Sidle had had her last episode on the show. So 5.6 million households didn't watch the show the week after. Was that some kind of protest?

House had 3 distinct ratings periods. It was averaging a 10.5 in early season. For two weeks in late January/early February, it aired after American Idol, averaging a 13.2 rating. After the strike it moved to Mondays and averaged an 8.9 rating.

The most consistent show is Numb3rs, which had a rating between 5.9 and 6.7 for the entire season.
