Note: Averages don't necessarily include every sweep airing of a show. I'm only including an airing if the show (or two shows being compared) aired both this year and on the year-ago evening.

Another note: For shows that regularly air within one hour but had a two-hour finale that was compared, I counted them in the hour in which they usually air. This applies to Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Desperate Housewives, Dancing, and Idol. Otherwise, I did what I've been doing for timeslot lists: no 7pm shows included, no 90-minute or regularly 2-hour shows included.
