Simpsons led September ratings race

By special arrangement with Nielsen Media Research, AWN publishes the Nielsen ratings for animated programs on a monthly basis in the Animation Flash. The ratings included herein are only for U.S. national network television. The following list of animated national network programs is ranked by Household Ratings. A Rating is the percentage of households that tuned into the program. This percentage can provide us with the number of households that tuned into the program on average during the month. The universe estimate for the 1997-98 television season is 98 million TV homes. Each rating point represents one percent of that universe, or 980,000 TV homes. Translation: "The Simpsons," with a 6.4 rating, was viewed in just over 6 million (6.4 x 980,000) households. The below ranking is an average for the month of September 1998 (monthly cycle includes the last day in August).
