The 50 Most-Watched Network TV Shows Of The 2016-2017 Season

It’s a wrap for the 2016-2017 TV season, and now that the ratings have been compiled we know which of this season’s network television broadcasts received the highest overall viewership.

As has been the case in recent years, NFL football is at the top of the list; what isn’t evident this season, however, is the dominance that NFL broadcasts have held in the past.

While NFL programming holds five of the top 10 spots in this year’s most-watched list, the highest rated of these — NBC’s NFL Football — averaged 20.1 million viewers, just over a million viewers more than the season’s top scripted series, “The Big Bang Theory”.
