It's July 1, which means 2019 is officially at its midway point. In honor of the very unofficial holiday, TheWrap has ranked the 19 highest-rated broadcast TV shows of the calendar year.
We've ranked them by Nielsen ratings among adults 18-49, which is the demographic most targeted by the advertisers on broadcast entertainment programs. We've also included each show's total-viewer averages as an alternative metric.
One last note: These numbers include a week's worth of delayed viewing where available, though that pretty much would only impact an episode or two of summer hit "America's Got Talent." Our data set runs from Jan. 1 through June 27, to be perfectly exact.
