NOTE: For the 2019-20 broadcast season, Nielsen has determined that there are 120.6 million TV households in the United States - with 307.3 million people ages 2 and up. The Adults 18-49 demographic is the rating most commonly reported and helps determine ad rates but is not the sole explanation for whether a show will be renewed or cancelled. Live+3 data helps inform the networks which shows have solid audiences after the initial broadcast.

NOTE (2): The numbers for the record-breaking Season 21 premiere of NBC's Law & Order: SVU were not accurately reported alongside the rest of the programs from Thursday. The table will be updated once those correct numbers are released.
