EW has put together a list of the most popular network shows through four weeks of the new season. It's based only on 18-49 ratings (the only ones that matter). The three cancelled shows have strikethroughs, new shows are in bold.

It might be worth noting, too, that The Walking Dead -- a basic cable show -- would rank number five on this list, American Horror Story would be around number 56, Sons of Anarchy would be around number 45, and that Family Guy reruns airing at 11 p.m. on Adult Swim fare better than the bottom 20 shows on this list.

Seriously.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not


  • NateMan

    It's so, so wrong that Castle and Supernatural are so far down this list. What the hell, man....

  • Devin McMusters

    18-49 only? My offspring were right....my opinion doesn't count anymore!

  • Mrs. Julien

    3.

  • Pajiba_Pragmatist

    Grimm looks on the bubble. bummer.

  • DominaNefret

    What on earth is The OT?
    The Voice (a friend is on this season, and doing really well)
    Revenge
    Bones
    The Vampire Diaries
    Grimm
    The Good Wife

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    So America is culturally doomed, as per usual. If it weren't for that Kevin Bacon serial killer show in the spring that looks kind promising (right? it's not the fall?), I'd say let the Mayans be right and just reap our asses to wherever we go after we're dead.

  • Blake

    WTF! No Parks and Recreation? And of the top 40 I only watch 3!
    4 out of the 100. Thank god for cable and specialty channels.

    20. New Girl (FOX) 3.7/10
    33. Suburgatory (ABC) 2.8/7
    38. Bob’s Burgers (FOX) 2.7/7
    68. Fringe (FOX) 1.5/5

    Happy Endings and DTTBIA23 opened with a 1.9 and 1.7 respectively placing them #61 and #64.

  • googergieger

    This reminds me. Fuck people.

  • WestCoastPat

    Mindy Project should be marked as new

  • I love Kat Dennings. I just really wish she was on a better show...

  • Arran

    It took me about three episodes to realise how fucking awful 2 Broke Girls actually was, because I REALLY wanted to like a Kat Dennings show. Ah well, at least she's getting paid.

  • dizzylucy

    You lasted about an episode and a half longer than me.

  • Long_Pig_Tailor

    She could get paid, I imagine, very nearly as well at things that aren't half as degrading.

    Say, porn.

  • Wembley

    Is there a show that didn't make this list?

  • Atoz15

    Me reading this list as I'm scrolling up
    "aw ya parks is doing enter than we thought! Wow it's better than go on? Revenge? Wow this is amazing!! Its going to break the top 20! Whompppp whomppp"
    Seriously entertainment weekly for being such a champion of the show you couldn't have even included it??

  • Atoz15

    Better* not enter, obviously.

  • Slash

    I accidentally watched a few minutes of "Two Broke Girls." Holy shit, that show sucks.

  • ruz

    So Fringe is the lowest-rated non-CW scripted show...

  • Sara_Tonin00

    What is Oh Sit!, dare I ask?

  • ruz

    Why, it's a musical chairs TV show, of course!

  • Sara_Tonin00

    That would be the best reality show evah.

    How can we work bugs and weight loss into the concept?

  • Jerce

    So, network shows only?
    What fucking use is that? Who the fuck cares?

  • Arran

    What, is Parks and Rec even lower than LA Complex or something?

  • dizzylucy

    I noticed that too - honestly I think it was omitted, because it's usually right in the same range as 30 Rock and Up All Night.

  • Arran

    I THINK given its usual ratings in the demographic, it should be around #60.

    Well, beats anything on the CW.

  • annoyingmouse

    That's what I was wondering?
