Share - The average percentage of TV-watching adults 18-49 that watched the program.
A few important notes on SpotVault historical pages
My typical shorthand to indicate the difference between a preliminary and final 18-49 rating was that I would not include the share for preliminaries. So that's how I operate on these pages too. The preliminary A18-49 ratings will not be in bold and there will not be a share. In the cases where I have the final rating but not the final share, I'll put a slash ( / ) in the share column and the final rating will still be bold.
These historical records were put together as I was assembling adults 18-49 ratings for the War of 18-49. My top priority by a longshot was 18-49 info, not total viewership info. This means there may be some cases where the viewership is preliminary but the A18-49 rating is final or vice versa. I didn't always clarify whether the viewership was final because I didn't particularly care at the time.
If you have ANY additions or corrections to this info, PLEASE don't hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to make these records as complete as possible.
