Consequently, as a result of revenue margins are tighter than ever, a number of the community’s top-rated exhibits of final yr have been virtually cancelled. Which exhibits will survive the 2022-23 season? Keep tuned.

Some notes about these charts:
These figures are up to date mechanically as new rankings are launched. The averages are based mostly on the ultimate nationwide numbers (dwell plus same-day viewing), until marked with an asterisk (*). For technical causes, I’ve to resort them manually.

There could be different financial components concerned in a present’s destiny, however usually the higher-rated collection are renewed and the lower-rated ones are cancelled.

Delayed viewing issues an increasing number of today (if commercials are watched) however dwell viewing remains to be advertisers’ best.
