How All 47 Broadcast Dramas Rank by TV Ratings (Photos)

For your reading (and, ultimately, viewing) pleasure, TheWrap has ranked all existing 47 broadcast network dramas by their TV ratings.

All numbers in the accompanying slideshow are from Nielsen’s “most current” metric, which counts one-week’s worth of delayed viewing where available.

Readers will notice that ABC, despite being fourth overall in ratings season-to-date, claims two of the Top 4 slots on our list. The Disney-owned broadcaster’s problem is depth, just like with sitcoms.
