The War of 18-49, Pre-2001 Comedies: Raymond, Will & Grace, Malcolm and more!


To wrap up this summer in The War of 18-49, this week will be a massive dump of War of 18-49 tables for broadcast series that don't have their own posts. Monday and Tuesday are what I call the "tail end" posts, looking at my incomplete record for a slew of notable shows that premiered before the 2001-02 season (the start of the A18-49+ era). Wednesday and Thursday are the "front end" posts, covering currently running scripted series that aren't yet four years old. And Friday will be news and sports series.

Pre-2001 Comedies

A handful of shows that aired prior to the start of the era already have standalone posts (Family Guy, Friends and The Simpsons). For convenience, these posts are linked in the list below, but they're also listed on the main index. There are also a couple shows listed that had complete 4+ year runs within the era but don't have their own posts (George Lopez and Still Standing). It's possible they'll get posts in the future, but they didn't make the cut this summer and I didn't want to withhold them.

For the pre-2001 posts, in order to make these pages load a bit faster I'm just doing the purple (A18-49+) table for each series. If you really want the raw numbers you can always reverse-engineer them using that season's league average. (Raw A18-49 = A18-49+ * League Average / 100)
