Ratings: NBC Wins With NFL's Preseason Kickoff, CW's 'iZombie' Adds Viewers

WGA-Agents Conflict: No End in Sight, Pivotal Elections Approach

It’s July 1, which means 2019 is officially at its midway point. In honor of the very unofficial holiday, TheWrap has ranked the 19 highest-rated broadcast TV shows of the calendar year.  

We’ve ranked them by Nielsen ratings among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most targeted by the advertisers on broadcast entertainment programs. We’ve also included each show’s total-viewer averages as an alternative metric.  

One last note: These numbers include a week’s worth of delayed viewing where available, though that pretty much would only impact an episode or two of summer hit “America’s Got Talent.” Our data set runs from Jan. 1 through June 27, to be perfectly exact.
