Which TV Network is Winning?

I was curious to see which network had the most viewers each night so I decided to graph the number of viewers per episode for the 2013-2014 full season drama shows that were renewed for next season. I don’t watch any CBS dramas (I use to watch The Good Wife but sadly, I fell behind) so I was immensely surprised to see that CBS was winning 4 of the 6 nights. CBS may remain the winner for comedy shows too since it has the uber popular The Big Bang Theory which TVLine reports has a total of 20 million viewers. With the exception of Elementary, even the lowest rated CBS episodes beat the other networks’ highest rated episodes. WOW! That’s some impressive numbers.
