- This isn't even close to being a comprehensive list. It only consists of the shows whose ratings I keep up with, and that mostly includes scripted shows and fairly well-known unscripted shows, and not even close to all of those either. So there are a ton of microscopically-rated unscripted shows toward the bottom that I just don't care enough to keep up with. It's not quite as dire for scripted as it appears.
- For WWE Raw, Pawn Stars, and American Pickers, which seem to air new eps all the time, I took exclusively the episodes that aired from the last day of the regular season through the last day of the summer. Other shows that started a run of episodes during the regular season but aired mostly during the summer are averages of the whole run, not just the summer ones.
- Many or even most of these nets don't actually target A18-49, and the standards for what's "good" even within A18-49 are wildly different from network to network, so don't take this as necessarily a "totem pole" of performance. It's just one way of lining it all up.

Scripted shows in bold
*- These shows are just season-to-date averages as they haven't totally finished their seasons. May or may not update later.
- A couple other notes - I left out one WWE Raw result which looked wrong, and Rubicon includes the post-Breaking Bad preview result (an 0.5) rather than the 8:00 "official" premiere months later
