  1. The cable ranking is great to see. Might you consider also repeating the chart by audience size from largest down to smallest, rather than by cable channel? That would seem the more germane and interesting bit of data. And personally, I’d love to see all shows from all dayparts and both cable and network in one chart for a day, from largest audience down to the smallest. I don’t think viewers make any distinction between cable and network so why should a ratings chart?
