The 2017-18 television season is in the books, and as usual, some shows performed better than others. Like, better than all of these.
Broadcast's lowest-rated entertainment series this time around was CBS Saturday show "Ransom," which our readers have probably never heard of. ABC's reality competition "The Toy Box" was just one-tenth of a ratings point behind that one among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most-beloved by advertisers.
