These were the 10 most popular shows of 2018, according to Nielsen ratings
2018 was an incredible year for television. Whether you’ve cut the cord in favor of streaming services or still tune in to broadcast networks for prime time programming, there were countless worthwhile returning and brand new series on the air this year. But as the TV landscape has become increasingly scattered across networks and services, there seem to be fewer and fewer shows that attract a consistent, massive audience week to week.
But there are still a few monolithic shows (though they don’t draw in nearly as large an audience as they would have a decade or two ago). This week, Nielsen shared its “Tops of 2018” lists, which broke down all of the biggest shows and telecasts of the year. If you’re a fan of TV, the results probably won’t surprise you.
